There are very few products that I feel comfortable putting on my skin, and those are from VERY few brands that I trust enough. This is a result of 2 different issues; I have very sensitive skin; and I like sticking to what works well. And Clinique just works well for me.

My first Clinique purchase was the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. That was 8 years ago, and I still use it to this day. That’s saying a lot for an editor who has a closet full of skincare products.

That one product slowly evolved into the entire line of skincare and makeup products, and at one point, pretty much everything that I used was Clinique. The reason that I’ve been so loyal to the brand is because not only do  they make a great product, but they understand their market so well. What started off as a FANTASTIC skin care line has slowly developed in a beauty powerhouse with new products being added frequently.

Clinique has truly changed the dialogue when in comes to their brand. They are constantly coming out with innovative products that are not only strong on their own, but serve a secondary purpose of providing peace of mind for those of us with sensitive skin. They haven’t neglected anything including nails, eyes, or face. Clinique continues to identify colour trends in the market, but with a twist of their own. This season’s trend of nude is showcased exquisitely with the 8 eyeshadow shades, and polishes.


Just because you have sensitive skin doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the wonders of all that is beige, which why we’re giving away:

Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion ($47) is the best moisturizer on the market. It also comes in gel form if you tend to have oily skin, but for most of us, the lotion is all you need throughout the summer.
