.Cheek Pops & Clearing Gels | Clinique New Releases.
Whenever a new product gets released it tends to do the rounds on the blogs, so sometimes I like to hang onto things and give them a proper good go before forming an opinion and sharing it with you lovely lot. This is exactly what I’ve done with the new Clinique Cheek Pops* and Anti-Blemish Solutions Clearing Gel* and I’m happy to report I love them all!
Let’s start with the blush. These absolutely stunning little blushers come in four shades of which I’ve been trying out three (from left to right: Peach Pop*, Berry Pop* and Ginger Pop* all £16.50 each) and they are b-e-a-utiful. At first I thought they were cream blushers and I was petrified to touch them and ruin the gorgeous 3D flower imprint on the surface, but I was incredibly happy when I realised that they were actually all powder blushers – my favourite! The colours are wonderful with ginger pop being the best for my skintone right now, a bronzey brick colour with a hint of orange, followed by berry pop a bright but deep berry colour that applies lightly and builds up well and peach pop a lovely light coral colour probably more suited to faces with a bit of a tan. All the colours are really pigmented and blend wonderfully to leave a nice stain on the cheeks which even on my slightly oily skin lasts all day long. I’ve been reaching for them most days since they dropped through my door, they’re fab!
Onto the gel. I’ve been trying out a number of anti-blemish products recently because my skin has been going a bit bonkers with the change in seasons and I’ve had quite a bit of success. I had to stop using other products in order to try out Clinique’s offering and I’m happy to report I’ve had just as much success with this one. I’m a huge Clinique skincare pioneer as their original Anti-Blemish Solutions range really helped clear up my skin about 3-4 years ago and this new little addition is a godsend too. The Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Clearing Gel (£14 per 15ml) is applied all over the face twice a day it keeps blemishes at bay before they even pop up! I do occasionally still get a blemish but my breakouts are no-way near as severe as they were before and used sparingly I think this is a great product to add into your skincare regime after cleansing. It doesn’t feel too harsh and my skin seems to love it so it’s a win win for me.
Another beauty and skincare triumph for Clinique on xameliax, they truly are a trusted brand that keep surpassing my expectations every time!
