Hello you. It’s been a while, I know! I have been super distracted with life of late, and I am not one to let things get in the way, but sometimes your mojo gets nicked and there’s no getting it back until life is good and ready… It’s been the most frustrating thing because I am so passionate about this little space, but from now on I can see me slowly taking the reigns again and I won’t be letting it go!
Being stuck in a rut always makes it hard to make a comeback, and I’ve been wondering whether to do a current favourites, (as beauty never stops in my life, and I DO have lots to talk about) a seasonal post or what-not, or a product review. But I am wanting to do more single product reviews and there is a product in particular that’s made my life so much easier this last couple of weeks, so I felt super compelled to tell you guys all about it! (Properly this time as I did mention it once upon a time in a nighttime routine post but this baby deserved the lime light!)
That product is this Clinique Overnight Revitalising Moisturiser...
I’m sure you can all agree that with all the skincare ingredients that we are told can benefit this that & the other, we get obsessed with switching up all the actives. Glycolic acid, vitamin C, retinol and so on…and if you get the right balance it can work wonders, but after a while I personally notice my skin starts to play up. I break out and my skin just doesn’t look it’s best no matter what I do. I put this down to disrupting the skin’s Ph and the barrier that keeps it healthy, because when it gets to that point and I simplify, it quickly gets back to normal. My go to for this scenario has been this night cream which has absolutely saved my skin on numerous occasions and I cannot recommend it enough!
A couple of weeks ago my skin started misbehaving, breaking out in random little spots in random places, ones that I couldn’t put down to food, hormones and least of all lack of care. I have owned this night cream on & off for the last 5 or 6 years and luckily Clinique Australia sent me some recently and although I had been using it a few times a week, I decided to use solely this for a few nights, and my skin literally bounced back!
This cream still has active ingredients in it, but at a lesser percentage. This helps this act as what I am suggesting, a low impact, giving my skin a break, formula. The combination though, works beautifully to calm and plump the skin. These include a low percentage salicylic acid to gently exfoliate the skin, hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump the skin, and a concoction of wonderful natural skin-loving ingredients. I don’t know what it is, but the combination just works a dream!
I have used this during a freakish dry, sand papery spell (not like me at all and have not had that happen again), during mega break outs when I was young, and now for balancing, plumping and even-ing the skin and it’s not let me down!
So the results I experience are, plump, soft, calm, blurred skin the moment I wake up. It literally feels like my skin has been cared for all night to give it everything you could possible need.. Clarity, hydration, plumpness, and this for me has been during ANY type of break out.
I would 100% recommend this to the majority of skin types/ages as a fool proof, minimalistic skincare product that will balance you out, and give the skin the TLC it needs.
So there is my little come back, partly because I HAD to, but mainly because I have fallen in love with this product again and I had to dedicate a post to it while the results are still fresh on ma’ face!
Until next time…
**Disclaimer – Clinique Australia kindly sent me this product so I did not have to pay for it, however I have purchased before, and will continue to purchase again as it is the bomb.**
