Clinique has developed a total of 4 sets for all skin types, so that everyone can choose something that suits her only. I bought my kit on Amazon for $27.01

My skin is combination, t-zone oily, cheeks normal but very sensitive and couperose prone. I’ve been having a terrible time with my pimples, which I’ve been fighting for years. My pores are really weird, they are small but very deep, so other than mechanical cleaning, nothing cleans them out well.

So, the kit includes:

  • Context: it is a very fluid, transparent gel. It foams out beautifully. It takes just a pea-sized amount to wash out your entire face.
  • Smell: Almost none. It has a neutral soapy scent.

How do I use it?

I squeeze a small pea of the product in my palm, whip it into a foam and apply it to my wet face. I massage it for about 1-2 minutes, until I feel a squeak in my hands and then rinse with cool water.

Impression

The first time I even got a little bit of a tightness in my face. The product really cleanses the skin very effectively, removes the top dirty layer from the pores. If used with a facial cleansing brush, the product turns into a crazy foam and gives just a stunning effect. It is also very effective in drying out small rashes. After using it the skin seems to breathe somehow in a new way. In my opinion, it is a very good product and works well on its own. It did not dry out my combi skin and did not cause any flaking.

  • The verdict: I will definitely take the full version.
  • My Rating – 5

  • Smell: It feels like I’ve opened a can of alcohol. I have definitely never had alcohol like this before.

How do I use it?

I wipe my face with a cotton pad soaked in the product after washing.

Impression

When I first opened the jar, I was terrified of the smell. I thought if I wiped my face with it, I wouldn’t be able to even blink anymore. But my fear was quite unjustified. The toner is absolutely stunning, I’m not afraid to say the best I have ever tried. My favorite, PAYOT Tonique purifiant, is now nervously smoking on the balcony. For all its alcohol content, which is horrible for the nose, it doesn’t dry out the skin at all. But it’s just great to give my skin an extra boost of moisture.

  • Verdict – I will definitely take the full version and put it on my list of must haves.
  • Rated 5 (not 5+ just because of the smell)

3. Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel – 30 ml

  • Gel consistency: yellow in color. Not liquid but not dense. It spreads easily on the face and is incredibly economical.
  • Smell: It has a faint smell of something stale. Thank goodness it wears off very quickly on the face.

Impression

It has a slightly different consistency, and the feeling after application, too. It lacks the so-called “gas mask effect” on my face. Let’s talk about the effect. Honestly, I did not notice it. Yes, it is not a bad moisturizer, but I’m afraid that for problem skin of this little. And even though it is economical and even cute, but absolutely ineffective. Now I have replaced it with my favorite Avene Cleanance Emulsion-Lotion Seboregulatrice matifiante and it is even more effective.

  • Verdict – The product is a completely unnecessary step, I will never buy again.
  • Score – 3

According to my calculations, all products in general last for 1-1.5 months.

So, let me show you what you have been waiting for so long, the top photo before and the bottom photo after:

The first results I saw on day 7 or 8 and I couldn’t believe it when I looked in the mirror in the morning. My skin looked so matte and full of life like never before.

As you can see the pores near my nose were noticeably smaller and my complexion was evened out. Many pores disappeared somewhere altogether, although this had never happened before from washes or toners, only peels.

Now I plan to clean my pores with my best NIVEA nose strips and continue using the program with cream replacement, as mentioned above.

On my forehead, many deep pores that I had never been able to remove at all have disappeared.

All in all, I highly recommend trying this 3-step program from Clinique to all owners of oily and combination skin. But it is better to start acquaintance with miniatures like mine. I only took off a star for the cream, which I don’t understand why it was created at all. I suggest replacing the original cream with Avene Cleanance Emulsion-Lotion Seboregulatrice matifiante to achieve absolutely stunning results.
