Clinique Boxing Day SEPHORA (pic heavy)


Don’t judge me okay! Yup, you’ve to believe me when I told you that I’m still doing my Boxing Day unboxing purchases in February. I must do this one because it’s a brand that used to be closed to my heart when I was in my twenties.

So, a big SHOUT OUT to Clinique Cosmetics. MY dear old friend LOL! I’m actually feeling nostalgia as I write! Sure brings back good memories.

The Clinique Loves Boxing Day set that comes with a  Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara, Day Off Cleansing Balm and Extended Thirst Relief might have found it’s way as my must have face routine. Happy because I found a cleansing balm that works for me, and sad because I’m running out my other face product!

For only CAD$15 you get three nice products from Clinique to try, exclusive only at Sephora.

I’ve never had any colored mascara than the usual black. I was excited to get this Marsala color for my eye lashes. Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara comes in a regular size tube packaging. My only complain is that the color is not as loud compared to what appeared on the brush. It isn’t showing much on my lashes and frankly, I couldn’t see the difference unless I us 20X mirror! Or maybe,  I got a bad tube. I don’t know. So, bum!

I never knew I needed this until I tried it!

“Take The Day Off” Cleansing Balm by Clinique is my new love. After having my whole arm full with color swatches, I decided to use this cleansing balm to the test. You just gently apply the product on your arms or face and taa..daaa!!! In my case, all the swatches removed in front of my very eyes. Wow!

With this product, a little bit goes a long way. You get loads so you will literally never have to repurchase for a long while! I’m always on the hunt for makeup remover that effortlessly dissolves even the most tenacious makeup and so glad to find it. I love my Estee Lauder Makeup Remover and this Clinique is just icing on the cake. I got to admit, I’m in love and will continue to use this product.

Individual bottle available at Sephora for C$36.00 in 125 ml or at retail stores, drugstores or Clinique online.

Next product in this box is the Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Gel-Cream that valued for C$46.00 for 1.7 oz at Sephora.

First and foremost, it states on the website that this product is perfect for all skin types. Well, I’ve dry combination skin and I was all excited to test it out. I’ve been trying this moisturizer cream in the morning for the last two weeks and I would say this formula leaves my skin feeling moist and not greasy. Lastly, I didn’t notice any breakout which I sometimes experience when trying out skin care products.

It’s smells amazing and absorbs to skin before I count even count 1,2,3. The moisturizer has a somewhat herbal smell, but it doesn’t linger and nothing that’s insulting to the the nose. It feels soothing and cooling on my skin. I’m going to continue to use it interchangeably with my other skin care products next but this Thirst Relief gel-cream, I highly recommend.

Have you tried any Clinique products I mentioned above? What do you think of it by commenting in the section below.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read. Hope to see you on the next one!

  1. Oh yes, Clinique brings back memories for me too! One of my first encounters with foundation was with Clinique (but unfortunately it was way too orange on me but I digress).
    I do find that most coloured mascaras don’t really show up that strongly, I think mainly because my lashes are dark to begin with. If you had blond lashes, I think the colour would show up better!
    What a great kit for just $15!

  2. I haven’t tried these Clinique products, but so many bloggers rave about the Cleansing Balm that it’s been on my to try list. I used Clinique a lot in my 20s and early 30s, but it still has great products. Too bad the marsala colored mascara was disappointing. I often find colored mascaras don’t show up, don’t volumize at all, and are generally disappointing. The best colored mascaras IMHO are from Dior


  3. I LOVE Moisture Surge – its one of my favorite moisturizers ever. I have the same size as you and I just finished it up and the full size is on my shopping list.

    I’m very interested in the Cleansing Balm as well, glad to hear you like it!
