Clinique is another brand that I’ve been using since I was in college, and one of the first skincare lines I’ve ever committed to. Not everything from their brand was suitable for my skin, I find that the cleansers were too harsh on my skin, but I’ve had great experiences with their toner, moisturizers and cleansing balm.
I was recently sent three products from Clinique and I was so thrilled because I swear by two of the products I was sent, and the other product was one I’ve been eyeing for a while!

- Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster

When I got out of the shower this morning, I realized one thing. Most of my current favorite hair & skincare favorites have green packaging! It certainly inspired me to write up a favorites post, which I haven’t done in for. ever.
So here’s a brief review on each of these products:

I’m so excited I can finally share about some products from my skincare routine for congestions and clogged pores!
I started weaning my son from breastfeeding shortly before he turned one in September, and boy did my skin hate me for that! I thought pregnancy acne was bad, but no one ever told me weaning acne would be far worse! To top it all off, seasonal changes was also a culprit. I had at least two new cystic acne appearing every week and my pores congested with tiny, skin-colored bumps with new ones appearing every day.
I started on the La Roche Posay Effaclar System Kit, as I mentioned in my latest Empties: Buy Or Bye? post and it tremendously helped clear up my cystic acne, but it stopped there. After all my cystic acne disappeared, I was left with tons of red spots and discoloration, and my pores were still very much congested – all throughout my T-Zone and jawline.
About 2-3 weeks ago I started using some products from the Elucent Anti Ageing range, and I was so shocked to see the results. I can’t believe the vast improvement I’ve been seeing on my skin.
Check out my before-and-after photos and reviews of the products below. I will share my whole my skincare routine for congestions and clogged pores soon!
I’ve never done an empties post before because I always tend to throw things in the bin when I use them up without thinking twice! So I’ve been trying my best to keep these empty bottles in my bathroom (although I accidentally threw away one!) so I can do a roundup of products I emptied out.
Check out my thoughts on products I recently used up below and whether I’ll repurchase them – most of these are actually my holy grails because I rarely use up products I don’t like!
