A+++ Review: Clinique's 3-Step Program

Clinique offers a 3-Step Program that pairs you up with your perfect dermatologist-developed, custom fit,  skincare routine which includes Step 1: Cleanse, Step 2: Exfoliate, and Step 3: Moisturise. Simply visit, Clinique's Online Consultant which will take you through a 1 minute survey to find out what skin type you have, what Clinique 3-Step Program product's are best for you and product choices for any skin concerns you may have stated during the survey.

Here are my precise results for the Clinique 3-Step Program:


Step 1: Cleanse

The first step in Clinique's 3-Step Program is Cleanse! For my skin type, I cleanse twice daily with the Liquid Facial Soap in 200ml for Dry Combination skin. To use, pump the Liquid Facial Soap onto your hand, lather with some luke warm water to create a foam. Just one pump is a generous amount of Liquid Facial Soap to massage on your face and throat. Rinse with water and pat skin dry.

The Liquid Facial Soap is designed highly efficiently perfect and will probably last up to a year; A pump dispenses just the right amount of product each time and is enough to use on both your face and your neck. The Liquid Facial Soap nourishes providing a smooth, soothing and soft protective layer on top of your skin! This first protective layer is dermatologist-developed for sensitive skin and creates a base to apply your make-up onto. I think it's pretty impressive that a cleanser would provide a helpful layer for make-up!
All though the bottle is transparently green the Liquid Facial Soap is actually completely transparent! You can also bring the Liquid Facial Soap on your traveling journeys as you can twist the top to close!

Step 2: Exfoliate

The second step in Clinique's 3-Step Program is Exfoliate! For my skin type, I exfoliate twice daily by using the Clarifying Lotion 2 in 400ml for Dry Combination skin. To use, place a small amount on a cotton ball and sweep over your face and throat avoiding the eye area; The Clarifying Lotion 2 is used for external use only.

Clarifying Lotion 2 is dermatologist-reformulated to be comfortable, non-drying, is gentle enough for sensitive skin and developed to protect your face from harmful environmental elements. Clarifying Lotion 2 is my favourite product in Clinique's 3-Step Program, as it also exfoliates dry skin flakes and helps close pores for clearer, refreshed, smoother and even toned skin. After using the Clarifying Lotion 2, your skin will radiate with health, it will aid in the prevention of getting blemishes and prepares your skin for the next step, moisturising.

The bottle is actually transparently clear, and the Clarifying Lotion 2 has the smallest tinge of purple! I do really love the purple, the colour does set it apart! You can also bring the Liquid Facial Soap on your traveling journeys as you can twist the top to close!

Step 3: Moisturise

The last step in Clinique's 3-Step Program is Moisturise! For my skin type, I moisturise twice daily with the Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion in 125ml for Very Dry to Dry Combination Skin Types. Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion is the Winner of the 2011 Australian Beauty Awards!!

To use, pump the Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion on your hand and gently massage on your face and throat. The pump has no mess and dispenses a measured amount with no waste! Just one pump should be enough for complete coverage, mainly apply to the dry areas on your face and use softly on the areas that normally have oil build up! Wait for around one to two minutes to allow the Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion to soak into your skin before you put your makeup on.

One of the best features about Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion  is how the moisturiser lasts all day with absolutely no oil build up, even where you would normally have oil build up! The moisturiser provides a very clear, smooth, light moisturised layer to your skin. Your skin will feel fresh and feel healthier. There is no irritation and can be safely used around the eye area!

The bottle is actually transparent, the Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion is a pastel yellow and applies clear on your face!

Step 1: Cleanse 

At the end of the day, remember to repeat Clinique's 3-Step Program of Step 1: Cleanse, Step 2: Exfoliate, and Step 3: Moisturise so that you remove the build up of excess makeup, products and oil!

Final Thoughts
Clinique 3-Step Program could probably last a whole year on your shelf, it is great value for money! I've been testing Clinique 3-Step Program and it had barely affected the amount of product in the bottles. 

I really adore the products transparent packaging as the products colour affects what the packaging looks like, and you can clearly see how much product you have left!  

Clinique 3-Step Program is a very carefully thought out program with a perfect dermatologist-developed product range made for those with sensitive skin. The Clarifying Lotion 2 is my number one favourite product from my Clinique 3-Step Program as I find it to be very helpful in removing dead skin cells, closing pores and making my face look and feel fresh.
