Clinique is a brand that I have wanted to try more from, but whenever I look at their stand the packaging always has me feeling slightly bored and uninspired. When my friend Molly, posted that there was a crazy little offer going on over on Clinique I decided to go over and finally do the tiniest spurge, but in tow got me 6 products to try out.
The offer Clinique were running was that with every order you could pick up 5 travel sized minis for free. This didn’t come with a caveat of spending £30 or over, or only on full size products, So I picked up one travel mini of I know several of my blogging buddies love and had been wanting to try, and got a bunch load of products that I wanted to try. Sadly this offer ended pretty sharpish, it was either so popular they sold out of their mini’s or they realised they’d made a grave error in the offer having no boundries!
First up the product that I bought was the Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm (£7.00), the mini was a 15ml size, compared to the full size at £23 for 125ml. I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews of this from many of my friends, and I’m hoping that this will leave me impressed. I have so many cleanser minis at the moment to review, I seem to have had a massive influx of them this month, so it may take me a while to get around to trying this, I’ll see how I feel the next time I run out and need to dig out something new.
Onto the minis I selected, first up was the Clinique Smart Custom Serum (10ml Sample / Full size £50 for 30ml / Sample Worth £16), I’ve had this serum in a magazine in the past and really enjoyed it so decided to pick up another. And the Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara ( Sample 3ml / Full Size £18.00 for 9ml / Sample Worth £6.00 ) is a mascara I’ve heard both really positive and also negative things about in the past, so thought it was worth a try to see how it performed, plus it was the only makeup item on the minis menu to choose from!
