Clinique #FaceForward

At the beginning of the month, I was lucky enough to be invited to Boots in Southampton for an evening with Clinique. This was my first official blogging event, and I was so nervous, but the girls I spent time with – AliceJess, and Charlotte, and our host Hana– made me feel so comfortable that I ended up really enjoying myself.

At the event we were introduced to Clinique’s new campaign #FaceForward. Fronted by everyday women rather than models, the slogan for the campaign is “make a promise to the future. And put it out there”, and is about making a promise to yourself about your life, and sticking to it.

Hana welcomed us to the event, with mini cupcakes and glasses of bubbly, before jumping into a run-down of Clinique’s products. We started with the Clinique three-step programme. This included the liquid facial soap, the clarifying lotion, and the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. For a skincare novice like myself this seemed a little daunting, but as we were walked through the process, it seemed a lot easier. After trying the products out on my hand, I could easily see the difference it made to my skin. The clarifying lotion was probably my favourite of the three steps. There are various lotions, each given a different number, dependent on your skin type – I fully recommend popping into a Clinique counter and having a consultation to see which is best for your skin type. That’s actually a benefit of the whole range – once you’ve had a skin consultation, your whole routine can be tailored to your skin type, something I think I really need.

As well as the three step programme, we got a chance to look at the new Sonic Cleansing brush – similar to the Clarisonic – as well as the new Turnaround collection, and a few other products. My favourites were the Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, and the Smart Serum. I was lucky enough to be given a sample of each of these to try – thank you Hana!

My #FaceForward promise to myself was to get a good skincare routine in place. I’ve tried my best, and I’m definitely getting there – after all it’s something that is going to take time to get used to. But it’s about time I started looking after my skin.

It really was a lovely evening, and I learnt so much in such a short period of time. I can’t wait to try out some more of Clinique’s products.
What would your #FaceForward promise to yourself be?
Until next time,
