I got a tiny sample of this face cream last time I bought Clinique make-up and they were giving away one of those cute pouches with the tiny lipstick (in the weird color you’ll never wear) and the teensy mascara and so forth. I’ve tried fancy, expensive face creams before, based on recommendations not just from well-meaning friends, but from dermatologists! My experience has usually been a bright red face and skin that stings for days. But this product I can wear!
To be shallow for a second, the packaging is beautiful. It comes in a nice frosted glass tub that’s tinted ever so gently primrose pink. The kind of product you feel good about putting out where it shows! The cream itself is really thick and soft and really lives up to the “intense moisture” descriptor. I use a lot at night because I don’t care if my face feels a little goopy, but in the morning, a little bit goes a long way. You literally just use the size of a dime on each side of your face, and a tiny dot for your forehead. I was worried about getting addicted to an expensive face product (I have formerly always used drug store products), but I have a feeling this Clinique cream will last me a really long time. My face feels soft, but not shiny. I love this product!
