little lifesaver- clinque

Good Evening Everyone!

Basically I cannot express in words how much this has improved my skin. But I will try. 

A little back story: I've suffered from seriously dry, dehydrated skin pretty much since I got over my spotty teenage phase. Now as a teenager I would have welcomed the idea of no spots in return for a few dry patches of skin. Little did I know that dry skin is so much more unforgiving. I've tried product after product to create some sort of moisture, hoping that one day I could apply a foundation and not look instantly scaly. In the end my mother got fed up of my moaning and presented me with a small gift. She bought me Clinique 3 Step Skin Care Introduction kit in Type 2 (for dry combination skin). It's available from my employer John Lewis for £20 but it's also available in Boots at the same price (and probably most Clinique stockists I'm guessing). I also received a free gift (above) Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief. This is literally the best skincare product I have ever used- it clears painful dry patches up so fast!

Clinique claim that it takes about 2 weeks to see 'clear, smooth, radiant skin'; I've been using it for around 4 weeks now and couldn't agree more. It also lasts really well so I'd say it's completely worth the £20 and personally would be willing to pay more. The only criticism I have is that I don't think the ratio of moisturizer is very good compared to the other products- there's only 30ml compared to 100ml of clarifying lotion; so I'll probably have to buy more separately.  

But all in all highly recommended for problematic skin.  

PS excuse my horrible nails.

Thanks for reading!
