Skin Care Routine using Clinique products under the Nigerian weather



My skin-care journey.I have very oily skin acne -prone skin and because of the incessant break-outs I have developed quite a lot of acne scaring over the years, but I have always covered this up with make-up specifically  Mac concealer  and Liquid foundation. (I find they do a very good job in covering up and giving a flawless look)

I have always wanted to clear the spots but  there are very limited options to clearing acne and dark spots without use of bleaching/toning creams. I did some research online on clearing hyper-pigmentation without using Hydroquinone/Mercury based products and saw some positive reviews about Clinique Even-Better-Clinical-Dark-Spot-Corrector and I said I will give it a go.

Clinique even better clinical dark spot corrector


I have always viewed Clinique as very high end which it is I know it is certainly not mainstream. But I thought I might as well give it a try.Retail price in the UK is 42 pounds for a 30ml bottle.

Next challenge can I get it  in Nigeria or do I have to buy and then pay cost of shipping to Nigeria. Then I remembered the Montaigne place at Ikeja city mall stock Clinique products.

Well I paid them a visit and bought a 30ml bottle for N25,000. The beauty rep suggested I also buy Clinique Anti-Blemish-Solutions-Clarifying-Lotion to complement this at a cost N5,000.

Clinique Anti Blemish Solution
 The rep was really helpful and emphasized the need to use a face cream with SPF 15 to achieve best results and that I should expect to see results in  at least six weeks of continuous usage.

I am to apply the spot corrector every  morning and evening (2-3 pumps) after cleansing with the anti-blemish lotion. So far after three days of use my skin is really a lot softer.

Well I have my fingers crossed with this I will give an update 6 weeks from now which will be mid-November on results.

Thanks for reading

XOXO
