A Clinique Offer To Good To Refuse

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!

This was an incredibly good offer by Clinique, especially as delivery was free over £7.00, especially for people like me who have been tinkering on the edge of buying things. So I paid £7.00 – and all these minis to try when collectively they were worth over £41?! I also discovered as I was paying that I also had lots of money in my PayPal balance where I don’t know where it came from, so I felt like it was a totally free haul!
Have you tried any of these from Clinique?

    So glad you’re happy with it! Tom just picked mine up from the post office yesterday and I’m so so excited to get it when I get home! I love the cleansing balm so much I bought one and then got one as a sample too! I think the rest of the stuff is identical though so we’ll have to compare notes! 😘

    That is a super deal! Clinique seems like a really good brand, shame about the price tag over here 😛 I won the full size of the Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm in Stashy’s giveaway and that thing is huge! It’ll take a while to get through the mini x

    This is such an awesome deal, a bit upset that I missed it because like you there is so much from Clinique I want to try like the Take The Day Off Balm but also the Moisture Surge moisturiser and the 2 in 1 foundation. Thank you for sharing, excited to hear your thoughts on your amazing haul xxx

    What an incredible offer! I have tried the Take the Day Off makeup remover (it’s one of my favorites – doesn’t irritate my eyes) so that cleansing balm should be awesome. The pep start packaging is super cute, definitely more interesting than pretty much every thing else they have.

    • It is, I normally walk on by the Clinique stand but the first time I saw them I stopped at the counter for a good 10 minutes playing with it all!
      Im looking forward to trying the balm, that’s next when I’ve finished up the two I’m currently using 🙂
