OMG it’s finally happened, my mum would be so happy as I’m talking about beauty and skincare more and more. Mum I know you read these so I knew as a child you didn’t think this day would ever happen but look at me now.
This blog post is a review about a moisturiser that unless you live in the hidden depths of the Amazon Rainforest you have probably seen advertised, mentioned or talked about. It’s the Clinique 72 hours moisturiser. I’ve been using this moisturiser for a few months now and I’ve completely run out so I thought I would do a little review of it. No one (unfortunately) has paid me/asked me to do this blog post, I have a lot of thoughts in my head so I thought I would share them with you
It’s pink. Although I am all for this I thought it was going to give me skin a pink tinge as most moisturisers I’ve used in the past were white. It’s also thick as you can see in the photo below and screams a good quality moisturiser.
Impact on the skin
I’ve been using this moisturiser for just over 4 months everyday and it has just ran out. My skin feels so much softer and although I do have dry skin around my nose still you can feel how soft my skin is and it looks a lot better underneath make-up. Now I’m not blind to the fact I’ve also started eating healthier too but I’m guessing it’s a combination of the two.
Does what is says on the tin?
In a way no. Do you believe any product when it says “24 hour foundation” or “72 hour moisturiser” and if you do, your a fool. If anyone can go 72 hours with washing their face then we cannot be friends. I will say my face doesn’t feel dry and it definitely has given it back some moisture.
This definitely isn’t your budget moisturiser at around £36, depending on the shops you buy it from but it’s also not the most expensive. It lasted me four months and I will almost definitely be buying it again (in fact I’m hoping someone gets it me for my birthday – you can tell your an adult when you ask for moisturiser for your birthday).
Would I buy it again?
I answered this above but yes! I’ve listed a few places that you can buy it from – all varying in prices (I have no clue why). I always buy mine from allbeauty.com if you’re interested.
