I'm definitely a huge Clinique fan and always have been, it was the first brand I used when I first started wearing make-up many, many years ago and there are several products in the range which I would hate to have to life without! I've always got on really well with Clinique because I have such sensitive skin - and eyes - but have never had any trouble with reactions/sensitivity with Clinique products. So here are some of my favourites!

Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream - I really hate thick foundations which feel heavy and horrible on your face, so this is definitely a great product for me. It's just that bit lighter than foundation and it literally glides onto your skin perfectly, it's super soft and smooth, and still gives you pretty great coverage. It comes in a range of shades and I use 'Light Medium' as that suits my skin best. This is a great product for using day-to-day, when you don't want too much on your face and want to achieve that natural, dewy look. You really don't have to use a huge amount of it and a little bit of the product goes a long way, plus it's really easy to build up if you want to - definitely one of my go-to products!

Clinique Redness Solutions - I decided to try this a while ago because I got really fed up of the redness that the sensitivity of my skin often produces. This is a protective base primer that aims to protect the skin from damage, especially if other products are what cause the redness. It's a really soothing, green-tinted product which visually corrects redness and helps to even out skin tone, which is great for when you're applying make-up and want an even finish. I don't use this all the time, only when I feel like my skin is looking particularly red or upset, but honestly it really works, you only need a small amount and it's a great, soothing barrier against all things aggravating!

Clinique Lash Power Mascara - I'm a huge fan of mascara from Clinique, mainly because I have super sensitive eyes and the Clinique products are amongst the few I don't react to. The Lash Power Mascara is an amazing investment, available in either 'Black' or 'Dark Chocolate' shades, I prefer the shade in 'Black' but the 'Dark Chocolate' is a really lovely colour too. It's a seriously resilient mascara and you don't need to go at it for hours trying to layer it up, you just need a few strokes and you can add an amazing colour and lift to the lashes, and it's amazing because it really doesn't smudge easily! It's easy to remove too - I cannot stand mascaras that take years to come off properly -and the lengthening effect it has on your lashes is brilliant.

Clinique Quickliner for Eyes - This has been my go-to eye product for years and years, and not just because it's another product I amazingly don't react to. It's a long-wearing eye pencil available in a range of gorgeous colours, with an eye pencil at one end and unique smudge-tip at the other. The colour is really long lasting and the beauty of this eye pencil is that you can apply your eyeliner, then use the smudge-tip to blend or enhance as you please. It's super handy to have an all-in-one product which is so easy to use and gentle on the eye, I rely on this day-to-day when I don't have much time and it helps me to achieve a subtle, defined eye look which is really easy to touch-up through the day with the smudge-tip. A massively fuss free product which I can't recommend enough!

  4. I've been meaning to try Clinique products for the longest time, I hear such good things about them. I definitely need to look out for more products for sensitive skin, as I type my cheeks are itching due to a mild reaction from a new product I tried! Redness solutions sound like just the thing I need, too. x
