Anti-blemish Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel from Clinique

The Clinique’s Clinical Clearing Gel is something that I use at night, after I’ve cleansed my face and right before I use a moisturizer, and on occasions (which is often) that I can feel a swell on my face that indicates an upcoming pimple.

Claim to fame: Daily treatment gel provden to give you clearer skin. Fast-drying, oil-free formula goes to work immediately to help clean blemishes, promote healing, prevent breakouts.

Directions: Apply a thin layer to entire face twice a day after cleansing. Or spot-apply if you are using another leave-on blemish treatment.

Skin Care Week: Clinique Anti-blemish Solutions Cleansing Bar

Taking over for day two of Skin Care week, let me introduce you to my new best friend, the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Cleansing Bar for Face and Body. Setting aside that the name of the soap is quite a mouthful, you might ask, why a soap bar? Isn’t there a cleansing gel or liquid cleanser that can work on your acne? To be honest, I have tried the cleansing foam, the cleansing gel, the liquid cleanser… I’ve tried them all but it’s just not working well enough for me.

Skin care week: COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad

Starting today until the end of the week, Joiz and I will blog about current skin care. Please keep in mind we both have oily skin, so some might not work for you if you have dry skin. We hope you’ll find this series informative. Please leave a comment if there’s something you still wish to know about our skin care products or routine. 🙂

I started having acne (again) since late last year. I believed it was because of sunscreen and foundation gone bad. But switching products and double-cleansing didn’t change anything. I then figured I had hormonal acne as it persistently appeared on my jawline and cheeks. I knew I had to update or return to my more-then-3-step skin care routine.

Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow 04 Black Honey Glow

Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow in Black Honey Glow

I wanted to publish this before the Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder, but I remembered I haven’t edited this post. 😆

A subtle pop of dewy color for lips and cheeks. Our nourishing tint with safflower, jojoba and sunflower seed oils feels luscious yet lightweight. Fluid-gel formula slips on with ease thanks to a convenient wand applicator that delivers the perfect amount every time. Shake well before applying.

My lips get very dry and flaky after a few days of regular or liquid lipsticks use, so I would eventually need to use lip balms for a few days. But I dislike how my lips look without color and my tinted lip balms dry it too. So when I discovered the Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow in Black Honey, I became a lip oil convert.

Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder

I mentioned in our November-December beauty favorites that the Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder is the best affordable setting powder.

Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder

The plastic compact feels slightly sturdy and light. Easy to slip in a purse or vanity kit for touch-ups, but a separate puff or dense powder brush is still needed. The latter works better btw.

November-December 2016 beauty favorites 

Better late than never. 😆

The holiday season is the busiest time of the year. Not only with the Christmas rush of gift shopping and/or get-togethers, but work deadlines too, which is difficult when you’re already feeling the holidays. I didn’t get to switch beauty and skin care products when December came because I was very busy to bother. Besides, almost everything I used in November I ended up liking so much that I didn’t want to switch yet. Even so, there are only a few that I really loved and would consider favorites. I think the same goes for Joiz. 🙂 I’ll begin with hers.
