Ever since I started blogging, my love and passion for skincare just kept growing. I wanted to explore, try and compare products as well as devices to find, share and recommend the right beauty arsenal to my family, friends and readers / followers. I’m not a pro, but I take pride and joy to be self-taught. I have learned so much about myself and what my skin needs by simply experimenting and being open-minded.
Last week before New York Fashion Week reaches its last day, I have been invited to attend Clinique’s “Shape Up You-Time Service” event. As much as I would love to visit them at Bloomingdale’s and check out the new Sculptwear collection … my schedule was quite crammed.
Needless to say, I was feeling quite bummed out for passing up on that opportunity. I suppose the team behind Clinique had the same thoughts as I do, so they sent me the collection so I can personally explore to my hearts’ content! Wu-hoo! Without further ado …
Meet Clinique’s Skin-Changer: ❝ Clinique Sonic System ❞
The Clinique Sonic System is dermatologist-developed and Swiss-engineered device that is suitable for all skin types, lightweight and sleek – its slim, modern and compact handle was designed for comfort and agility. The purified T-Zone targets hard to reach areas using an angled tip and gentle yet firm bristles. Its sonic action sweeps skin clean of dulling flakes (dead skin cells) thoroughly but gently.
Realistically speaking … I suffer from patchy, scaly skin around my cheeks and occasional rosacea on top of my combination skin type. Shortly after using the device for more than a week, I must say I have noticed almost immediately the changes it made on my skin. The patches are gone and I didn’t end up with raw skin or over exfoliation. I have experienced that in the past and I must say it hurt like hell, especially in the areas around my nose. Unlike with Clinique’s Sonic System my skin feels clean and quite rejuvenated I must add.
The white bristles are meant for the cheeks while the green bristles are meant for the forehead, nose and chin. The massaging / vibrating effect helps keep skin oxygenated, plump and healthy!
What I really love is that this device is waterproof, automatically turns off after 30 seconds (guaranteeing you won’t overdo cleansing) and keeps a full charge of 180 minutes making it perfect for traveling! Now for my favorite part …
Clinique’s Sculptwear Range: ❝ Fitness for the Face ❞
The best face and neck lift anyone could get minus the knife and operation! Let’s be practically clear, I am not getting any younger. Some of you will beg to differ that you nor I need to use a serum for lifting – that’s when you are wrong! Prevention is far better than cure. We all think that we should start looking into things once the problem arises. What most of us don’t realize is that there’s already an issue going on but can only be seen microscopically.
Clinique Sculptwear Lift and Contour Serum for Face and Neck
The serum promises that in just 8 weeks, a visible 40% lift all along the jawline can be achieved with PolySculpt Technology. Just a week and a few days with this product and I’m totally in love!!! I honestly thought I don’t need this product (just yet) but I figured giving it a try wouldn’t hurt. I did and I can’t get enough of it.
Clinique Sculptwear Contouring Massage Cream Mask
This contouring massage cream surely have changed my skin in more ways than I could imagine. My skin feels plump, firm and naturally dewy! This mask promises to strengthen the skins’ natural collagen and it surely feels like it after the sense of lift and firmness it delivered!
Clinique Sonic System Massaging Treatment Applicator
There’s no other way of saying this … this massaging applicator is super relaxing. Every time I use it, I feel totally pampered and I must add it’s like having my own facial spa right at the convenience of our own home. After each use, it’s super easy to clean too! Just rinse with water and then dry off.
Originally there was only one brush head available and that is the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush Head … and now, there’s more!
… and that’s not all! Clinique now offers a collection / range of products dedicated for the men! After all, keeping our skin clean, supple and pampered is definitely for everyone!
