  • Clinique Festive Skincare Workshop

    Heya, It’s December and Christmas is nearing!! I was invited to the Clinique Festive Skincare Workshop a few weeks ago and am gonna share some stuff I learnt from the 2-hour session.

    Clinique’s products are allergy tested and 100% fragrance free. Each product is tried and tested on different people with different skin conditions many many times before they are ready to be on sale in the market. So if you have allergic or sensitive skin, you can give Clinique a try. πŸ™‚

    The Clinique trainers starting their presentation and the rest of us paying close attention.

    We had to first diagnose our skin type before selecting different types of products suitable for our skin. All along, I thought I had Dry Combination skin because I experience some tightness on my cheeks (and occasional flakings near my mouth) and an oily T-zone area. But when the trainer came to me and checked my skin.. she said “perfect” and I was like how is that possible?!?! To be classified as Dry skin, you will have to gently push the side of your cheeks upwards and see if there are any lines or cracks on your face. Apparently I don’t have these lines soΒ and she placed me in the Combination Oily category. (My entire life was a lie…)

    ANYWAY.. Can you see spot anything wrong in this photo?

    Or this..

    Okay it’s slightly more obvious in this photo. I removed the makeup on my face, on the left side of the picture. (Well, except for the mandatory eyeliner! Still had to make sure I looked decent without majority of the makeup haha)

    Removed my makeup with the Cleansing Milk.

    We also did the 3-step skincare routine. Cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize.

    First Step.

    Second Step.

    And last step,

    One of their best-selling products, the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. These comes in two versions, the Gel and the Lotion. The Gel version is suitable for Normal – Oily skin while the Lotion is suitable for Dry skin. I used the DDM Lotion when I was in the USA because my skin was sooo dry it was flaking every single day and my lips cracked so badly I cringe at the thought of it. So thank you DDM for saving my skin while I was in the US (Read my New York blogpost and Miami blogpost)!

    Now taking care of your skin can be as easy as 1,2,3!

    OMG this has got to be my favourite Clinique product out of all the ones I’ve tested. It’s a tinted sunblock with SPF 40. Girls, please always remember to apply sunblock on your face before you go out! With or without makeup. No matter rain or shine, always wear sunblock! You don’t know how harmful the UV rays are. And even if it rains, it does not mean the UV rays can’t get to you. As long as the sun exists, there will always be UV rays harming your skin.

    See how smooth it blends into my skin! It’s almost translucent and I love it. I’m not a fan of thick heavy makeup unless it’s for shoots or events because of the harsh lighting. For normal days in school, I only wear BB cream. So with this product, I just have to wear it by itself since it’s a tinted sunblock. Don’t have to worry about forgetting my sunblock before my BB cream, heh.

    After applying the sunblock! Please forgive my eyebags, my sleeping routine is officially screwed haha. I sleep at 3am every morning so it is no wonder my eye bags are in a horrible horrible condition. I’m werking on it (sleeping early), give me some time.

    Was glad to have met Vivian, who also happens to be from NTU!! So coincidental. πŸ˜€ We were extremely pleased and satisfied with the Derma-White City Block!! Both of us were raving about how we can wear this to school haha.

    Even Better Liquid Foundation

    After applying the Even Better Liquid Foundation. The skintone of the left side of my face looks a bit similar to the one on the right (with my foundation I came with).

    A closer look of my face after applying Clinique’s products! You can ignore the white patch near the edge of my eye, bits and pieces of the cotton pad came off when I used them that’s why.

    The Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quads! I tried on the 113 Lemongrass palette and was amazed at how eyes could look nice even in green! πŸ˜€ I have tanned skin so it’s hard for me to wear colours on my skin. Would consider buying this palette.

    The Chubby Stick, a moisturizing coloured lip balm in four different colours. This Chubby Stick is multifunctional! Other than applying it on your lips, you can also dab a bit of it onto your cheeks for a natural blush!

    Vivan and me again, very satisfied after the workshop hehe.

    Since Christmas is nearing, do you have any gift ideas for your loved ones yet? Check out some of the gift sets Clinique has to offer:

    Look at all these pretty in pink gift sets suitable for your girly bestfriends. πŸ™‚

    The Chubby Sticks in five different shades! Perfect for your girlfriend who loves colours.

    This gift set comes with super cute mini-sized Clinique products which are sooo easy to bring around. Would totally love it if my friends got this for me for X’mas haha.

    Wait.. How can we forget about our male counterpart?

    Of course, there is always something for everyone hehe.

    Full attendance! πŸ˜€

    Hope y’all enjoyed this post and learnt a little more about Clinique!!
