I have a really finicky face. It can range from adult acne, redness, oiliness is one spot, and dryness in another. I go out of my way to avoid any face product that may cause irritation. So that's how I became a total Clinique girl. When Clinique launched in 1968, it was the first ever dermatologist-created, allergy-tested, 100% fragrance-free collection of beauty products ever marketed, and the company still bases their business on this principle today.

I love everything Clinique, but I have a couple go-to, never-be-without products that are a must for me.


Did I mention I also have a large pore problem? This is the only pore filling product that actually works for me. It fills those babies in, lasts all day long, and doesn't make me greasy!



At 30, I'm still plagued with acne. It is the most annoying thing ever! I love this Clinique 3-step solution to acne. You start by cleansing with the Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam, then exfoliating with the Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion, and finish by moisturizing with the Acne Solutions Clearing Oil-Free Moisturizer. By far this been the most effective and gentlest acne system I have used. Others can be so harsh and super drying on the skin.



This foundation is great for anyone with any amount of redness on their face. I love how this evens out my skin tone. It creates the perfect canvas!


Do you use Clinique? What are your favorite brands and products?

  1. I don't know a lot about Clinique, but really want to try all of these products! I'm especially excited to try the pore product and acne solution! What's with acne in your late 20s/early 30s?!

  3. I started using the acne solutions face wash when I got pregnant because my acne was terrible! I love the foaming wash, but the rest of the system was too strong and drying for me. Love hearing about new Clinique products though. Thanks for sharing girl.

  6. I need to check Clinique out! As I'm getting older I'm noticing my pores are getting clogged more and I definitely need to start taking care of my skin more.

  9. I used to literally only use Clinique and would swear by the Dramatically Different lotion in particular. But lately my skin seems to have changed (and become a lot drier) and it isn't working as well for me any more so I might have to switch moisturisers for the first time ever! x
