Starting My Day with Clinique Pep-Start Skin Care Kit
Clinique recently introduced to us Clinique Pep-Start Skin Care Kit, which is perfect for girls like me who’s always on-the-go and live a dynamic lifestyle. Aside from giving our skin the much-needed care it deserves, these multi-taskers are quick and efficient to use as well. We can’t afford to sacrifice our skin just to look fresh and presentable, right? Sharing with you how I prep my skin before I apply makeup:
At first I was hesitant to try the Clinique Pep-Start 2-in-1 exfoliating cleanser (PHP 1,150) because I have sensitive and acne-prone skin. So glad I gave it a try because I have been using this product for weeks now and I must say, it’s the most effective exfoliating cleanser I’ve tried to date! It has silica and bamboo extract beads which gently exfoliates giving me smooth and glowing skin. At the end of the day, I wash my face with Clinique Pep-Start 2-in-1 exfoliating cleanser and it removes all traces of makeup from my face. This just proves how it effectively takes away dirt, dead skin cells, oil and impurities!
They say women with oily skin are less prone to wrinkles; however, this doesn’t mean that these women can skip moisturizing step from their skin routine. I have oily skin and I’m guilty about avoiding moisturizers thinking they might make my face look even more oily. Clinique Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer (PHP 1,550) instantly caught my attention as it promises to moisturize and mattify at the same time. I’ve been using this as a primer since its very lightweight, effectively blurs imperfections, preps the face for makeup and has velvety finish which makes applying makeup so much easier.
Under-eye area is the thinnest and one of the most delicate area of our face. If you noticed, not all face products can be applied on the eye area. One of these products is the Clinique Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer. Even though I use Hydroblur Moisturizer on my face, I don’t apply it on my eye area as instructed by Clinique. Instead, I use Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream (PHP 1,500) to moisturize my eye area. It doesn’t seem to brighten my under-eye but it effectively hydrates. I use it as primer for the eye area as it makes applying eye makeup so much easier and prevents cakey effect on the under-eye area brought about by concealer.
Another member of Clinique Pep-Start Skin Care collection is Clinique Pep-Start Quick Cleansing Swipes (PHP 900). Just like Clinique Pep-Start 2-in-1 exfoliating cleanser, it effectively removes excess oil, dirt, impurities that lead to clogged pores. It also moisturizes and preps your skin for makeup. Since the wipes are quilted, it gently exfoliates leaving your skin smooth and glowing. It’s perfect for face and can also be used on neck, chest, upper arms and back. Definitely adding this to my travel essentials!
