I am currently running a mini series every Tuesday about night time treatments that I have been using, if you missed last weeks post I talked about the Sunday Rileys Luna Oil – http://bit.ly/2lvbnTe.
This week I wanted to talk about the Clinique Overnight Mask which is pretty good timing as I have very nearly finished it. I must have used this for the first time about 18 months ago but it has never been a must have product that I have wanted to reach for so it has taken until now to actually use it up. I have been on a mission in the last 6 months to start using products up as they will only end up wasted BUT it has also been helping me to decide which ones I do & do not like.
This particular mask has a light pink cream texture which is thin in consistency but not watery, it feels very cooling on initial contact with the skin of which I try to put a generous layer of on, I personally find after 10 minutes the mask has sunk into my skin so I guess my dehydrated skin is still hanging around. I like to get the full benefits with as much product as possible so I do tend to layer it up.
I literally sleep with this on, if I wear this from early evening I find the skin is tacky to touch but there is never any mask sat on the surface so I tend to top it up some more before I go to sleep. Now this is the sticking point for me, on waking up the next day I agree that your skin looks plumped but to visually look at I don’t get the wow factor the instant thought of look at how amazing my skin looks. I must say though this mask does have lots & lots of raving reviews but for me I don’t feel it gives me the outcome I was hoping for. It doesn’t perform badly but if I compare it to the Dior Rehydration mask which is incredible & gives me the wow factor it’s hard to give the Clinique a big thumbs up. Both masks are the same price point but it’s an easy decision for me I just think it’s unfortunate Clinique is being compared to one of my holy grail products but at least I realise I don’t need both in my life. I genuinely hope this works out better for others.
So to summarise the Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask is lovely to use, it personally didn’t live up to my expectations & experiences with other amazing products but I am pleased I have been using this up rather than throwing it out which would have been a really easy decision to make.
I hope you liked the post guys, much love xx
