Since 1968, Clinique has been bring­ing us closer to skin per­fec­tion and in­creas­ing our self-con­fi­dence. We hear from four women who have trusted Clinique with their skin

‘As a teenager, I strug­gled with oily and un­even skin­tone as a re­sult of pim­ples. I started us­ing the Clinique 3-Step

Sys­tem in 2010 and have never looked back. The Clar­i­fy­ing Lotion 1 is my favourite prod­uct in the 3-Step

sys­tem, leav­ing my skin re­freshed with­out feel­ing tight. My skin changes

ac­cord­ing to the sea­sons, so I al­ways use Dra­mat­i­cally Dif­fer­ent Mois­tur­iz­ing

Lotion in win­ter and Dra­mat­i­cally Dif­fer­ent Mois­tur­iz­ing Gel in sum­mer – they hy­drate with­out leav­ing my skin oily or shiny. With the 3-Step Sys­tem, my skin ap­pears ra­di­ant and feels soft and sup­ple to the touch. I be­lieve skin­care is the best in­vest­ment for your skin and Clinique’s 3-Step Sys­tem has been worth it as I feel con­fi­dent about my skin with­out

the need to wear make-up.’

‘I have al­ways bat­tled with my skin and ex­pe­ri­enced break­outs on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Af­ter try­ing nu­mer­ous prod­ucts, I tried Clinique when I was 17 for its recog­ni­tion as an in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned skin­care brand and have been us­ing it ever since. I can­not go a day with­out us­ing my 3-Step Sys­tem reg­i­men! I have found it to be a re­ally trust­wor­thy brand, as I have ex­pe­ri­enced the re­sults rst­hand. Af­ter us­ing the 3-Step Sys­tem, I feel more con­fi­dent with my­self and my skin – now I can go out and con­quer the day with­out feel­ing con­cerned about my skin.’

‘I am a diehard Clinique fan. A few years ago, I de­vel­oped a skin rash, which I thought was Ger­man measles and four years later I still wasn’t com­fort­able in pub­lic. Was it eczema or rosacea? I didn’t know, so I tried ev­ery­thing. There were days when my face was so dry I couldn’t even blink my eyes and, when I cried about it, my tears would lit­er­ally burn my face. Need­less to say, my self-es­teem was very low. I started us­ing Clinique’s 3-Step Sys­tem, in­clud­ing the Clar­i­fy­ing Lotion 1 and the Dra­mat­i­cally Dif­fer­ent Mois­tur­iz­ing Lotion+. Within two weeks, I nally didn’t look like some­one with measles! My skin has never looked this amaz­ing.’

‘I rst used Clinique’s 3-Step Sys­tem in my 20s and loved it, due to my ob­ses­sion with achiev­ing a squeaky clean face. In my 30s, af­ter the birth of my chil­dren, my skin de­vel­oped dark hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion patches, which I con­stantly cov­ered up. I con­tin­ued to use the gen­tle 3-Step Sys­tem as my trusted go-to, twice daily, and it’s is still part of my skin­care rou­tine to­day. The Even Bet­ter Clin­i­cal Dark Spot Cor­rec­tor is great for tar­get­ing hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion.’
