I popped into Boots yesterday to see about a new longer lasting foundation when the woman from Clinique grabbed me. I told her my foundation problem and she sat me down to ask a few questions about my skincare routine. Had never really thought about it before but I was embarrassed to admit to her that a quick wash in the shower, a face wipe and moisturiser was the extent of my skincare routine. She was horrified! And reminded me that my make up can only look as good as the skin you're putting it on which I guess makes perfect sense.
Within 15 minutes she had sold me 71 quid worth of products in the form of the Clinique 3-step process, plus a foundation suited to my skin type. Total impulse buy, but if it works for me then I'll be more than happy to have spent that amount.
When I got home i started to read some reviews online and it appears this product seems to be the marmite of the skincare world and the clarifying lotion has caused a lot of problems for people. But then there's others that swear by it. After having used it twice now, my skin does feel really nice, but the real test will be how my make up holds up at work tomorrow and the coming days. I definitely haven't had any kind of reaction like others have said online.
Will be sure to update and let you know how it goes.
Love, Jilly x
