I’ve been dying to tell you about this project that I’ve been working on with Clinique for a few months now. We wanted to put together a beauty box that was carefully edited a) for anyone new to Clinique (is there anyone?!) to see the best representation of what the brand has to offer, and b) for existing Clinique fans to have a useful collection of travel friendly items and perhaps experience some products they hadn’t before. So with that remit, we’ve all worked together to come up with an excellent value-for-money combination that we hope you’ll enjoy. As ever, Latest In Beauty are with us on this and you’ll find the box HERE.
So, what’s in the box? First up is the 15ml Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief. I picked this ultra hydrating cream for it’s light, gel-like feeling that ensure it sinks in instantly. I had holidays or weekends in mind for this because changing temperatures and humidity often mean skin needs urgent action. It’s also a brilliant flight moisturiser and you can just keep adding more as and when your skin needs it.
Next is a 15ml Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion+. I’m sure any Clinique fans will have already tried Dramatically Different – a best seller in the Clinique line-up – but a recent formula update to make it even more moisturising, so I flagged it as must-try.
Then, we have a full size Clinique High Impact Mascara (value £17.50). It’s one of Clinique’s best kept secrets – it’s in my drawer for my bottom lashes, but I’ve put this one out to trial on friends and each one said they’d buy it again. Maybe because it doesn’t have a ‘shouty’ name, you don’t realise just how full it can make your lashes looks, in a sweep of the deepest black.
Clinique Liquid Facial Soap (mild) in a 30ml version is definitely one to try if you haven’t already. I think we get so fixated on what’s okay to cleanse with and what’s not, that facial soaps get left out. Really, the ‘soap’ aspect of it isn’t where to centre the attention; it’s a more of a wash away cleanser that leaves skin feeling beautifully soft, and super clean without feeling ‘stripped’.
If you’ve read my blog a while, you’ll know that I am Chubby obsessed. Clinique Chubby Sticks are in every bag I own.. I even have one in the car. So, there is no way I could do a BBB Box collaboration without it! We opted for Plumped Up Pink (value £17) as a suit-all shade for a sheer, juicy lip look.
Clinique Take The Day Off Make Up Remover for Lids, Lips & Lashes 30ml is the kind of product that you don’t quite know how you did without once you’ve discovered it. I use it for removing ‘stainy’ lipsticks and also for brow colour or waxes, but it also cuts through the most stubborn of mascaras and liners.
Finally, product wise, there’s that little bottle of Clinique Happy – I’m obsessed with small size things so this was making me all kinds of happy just for that. If you don’t know the fragrance, it’s a citrus floral – a lovely zingy scent that’s perfect for summer days.
Also inside the box are two vouchers – one is for £10 off any purchase of Clinique products when you spend £40 or more … you might want to super-size your travel sizes so this is very handy indeed. There’s also an invitation to visit your nearest Clinique counter for a treatment and a ‘treat’ (you’ll be gifted another selected sample at counter). Clinique counters offer skin care and make up treats so just ask what’s available, pick one you’d like and present your card. Services are what on-line can never offer, and if you’ve never done it, you’re missing something special.
So, from Clinique, myself and Latest In Beauty, we hope you enjoy the #BBBCliniqueBox edit. The box is £18.50 (including postage) HERE. We’d love to get any feedback you’d like to give us – I’ll be on Twitter pretty much all day today so if you have questions, please do ask, but use the #BBBCliniqueBox hashtag so I can ensure I don’t miss any.
NB: 6pm. This box went SO fast – so sorry if you missed it; we’ll do more next time xx
