Hello! My aunt generously gifted me with an adorable makeup bag filled with skin care samples by Clinique. I was pretty excited to try all of these goodies out because I have used makeup by Clinique before but never their skin care. The samples I tested out were a serum, moisturizer, and eye cream and I can’t say that I was overly impressed with any of them. However, I just started using the All About Clean Facial Soap by Clinique a few days ago and I am loving it! Let’s discuss:
I have used several ultra gentle cleansers in the past and was disappointed by literally every single one. None of them ever lathered well or did anything to make my skin feel cleaner or more nourished in any way shape or form. When I saw the Clinique face wash, I assumed it was going to be another similar situation thanks to the word “mild”. I wasn’t expecting much when I used the facial soap for the first time and ended up being very pleasantly surprised.
Every morning for the past couple of days, I have been using a quarter size dollop of the Clinique cleanser and it is So. Freaking. Nice. It is unscented, which I don’t feel one way or the other about but, most importantly, it lathers like a dream. When using this product for the first time, I couldn’t believe all of the soapy bubbles that formed as I was washing my face. Although the facial soap didn’t make my skin feel moisturized, it made it feel so incredibly clean and that was very refreshing.
The asking price for a full bottle of the Clinique All About Clean Facial Soap is around twenty-four dollars. I would never pay full price for it but this is actually one product that I would consider paying a bit more for at TJMaxx. The Clinique cleanser is definitely not the move to use during the winter because it doesn’t moisturize. BUT, I think that it would be a perfect product to use during the summertime and will be keeping my eyes peeled to see if I can find it on the cheap.
If you are comfortable with the full price and are looking for a milder cleanser, you will love the All About Clean Facial Soap by Clinique. This would also be a good product to start dabbling in skin care with if you do not have a set routine already. I will be upset when I am done with my travel size tester!
Do you like Clinique skin care? How does your skin care routine change with the seasons? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
