Clinique Festive Skincare Workshop

With the festive season of Christmas around the corner, I am delighted to be invited to Clinique Festive Skincare Workshop at Estee Lauder Office.

While waiting for other bloggers to arrive, I take this opportunity to check out some of the Gift sets that Clinique has in store for us this season. Wow, I am immediately amazed by the selection of choices as there are a total of 12 Gift Sets, ranging from Skincare, Makeup and even Fragrance for him and her. 

By the way, delicious refreshment from Delifrance is also served

Finally, the event begins with an introduction of the brand of Clinique

More about Clinique

Clinique Products are Allergy Tested and 100% Fragrance Free that are formulated for Asian Skin.

For your information, every Clinique Product is Allergy Tested, meaning that every formula is being applied 12 times to 600 people under the clinical guidelines established by founding dermatologists. If any of those 7200 application incites an allergic reaction, Clinique will reformulate.

A lot of people have the misconceptions that Clinique Products are quite oily and will cause breakouts. The fact is that Clinique Products might cause your skin to detox after the initial usage and hence the breakout. Gradually, your skin will improve overtime if you continue to use Clinique Products.

Here comes an interesting part of the workshop where we are being shown on the Powerpoint Slide the appropriate Clinique Products to be used for the different Climate.

PS: Although there are 4 seasons, I can only remember 3 of them.

In Summary:

Winter Holiday: Japan China and Korea: Clinique Moisture Surge Intense

Humid Holiday: Malaysia: Clinique Moisture Surge

Warm Holiday: Australia: Clinique Repair Laser Focus

The next part skincare and makeup demo, followed by the practical session where we can hand on and try  the Clinique Products.

In this section, I will be highlighting 3 new Clinique Products that have been mentioned during the demo.

Please also note that I have only received Clinique Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye for review.

Product Description: It helps to repair the visible signs of aging around the entire eye area.

Encapsulated Micrococcus Lysate - repair the appearance of skin damage resulting from direct UV exposure
Vitamin C and E – fight free radicals from environmental aggressors

Chlorella Vulgaris, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Siegesbeckia Orientalis Extract –stimulate
natural collagen and elastin production to plump the skin

I have been using this Product for around 1 week and I admit that I do like the texture of this product. This product is non-oily and it is easily absorbed into my delicate eye area.

It really matches my criterion of an effective eye cream that is mild on my eye areas. As we know that the area around the eyes is approximately one tenth the thickness of the skin on the palm, the least thing that I will like to have is an oily eye cream that will cause Milia seeds to appear around the eye areas.

Speaking of the effect of this cream, I can feel that the eye areas are much pumped up (but not in terms of eye bags), as though collagen are suddenly stimulated in the eye area.

I am rather happy with this result, taking into  consideration that I have only tried this product for around 1 week. Till now, I am still using this product and will continue to monitor its effect on my eye area. However, I feel that it is such a pity that this product does not improve the dark eye circles around my eye areas though.
