Hey there, dolls! As we transition into spring, it’s important to update our skincare routine to keep our skin looking and feeling its best. I popped into Bloomingdales in Soho the other day to restock some skincare products that really work for me. I found the perfect duo to achieve smooth, fresh, hydrated skin as a gift with purchase. I ordered my tried and true Clinique Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation with SPF and as a free gift with purchase, I found the perfect duo to keep my skin looking and feeling it’s best – the Clinique All About Clean Facial Soap and Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. I have oily/combination skin, Here’s how the Clinique All About Clean Facial Soap and Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel works for me.
Does the Clinique Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation have SPF?
Yes! The Clinique Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation has SPF 25. This makes it s great year-round foundation. In the winter months, SPF25 is enough for me. In the summer months, I may layer an SPF moisturizer underneath for additional protection. I’ve been using this Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation for a few years, I get the color CN 127 Truffle. This foundation can change the way your skin looks and feels, making it glowier, smoother and more plump. Here’s how it works: Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation gives you 3 serum technologies in 1 foundation. Correct with Vitamin C. Plump with Hyaluronic acid. Smooth with salicylic acid. I love this foundation when my skin is in an oily phase (spring/summer) and when it dips into a dry phase (fall/winter).
Does the Clinique all about clean facial cleansing foam work?
OMG Yes, it totally works! I was introduced to the clinique all about clean liquid facial soap as a free gift with purchase when I ordered my daily clinical serum foundation. Once my travel size sample ran out, I immediately rushed to Bloomingdales to pick up some more. I also bought another travel size set to keep in my suitcase. This soap is gentle enough for daily use– I typically use it as part of my night routine. The clinique facial soap effectively removes dirt, oil, and makeup without stripping the skin of its natural moisture, but I like to use a makeup removing oil and a clean pad to lift my makeup off as a pre-step. I find that doing this reduces the rubbing I have to do on my face and saves product overtime. I want my facial soap to wash my face and move any residual makeup, but I don’t want to use it for the heavy lifting of getting the initial layer of my daily foundation off. The clinique all about clean soap is fragrance-free, which is great for those of us with sensitive skin, and lathers beautifully to leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed.

How long does Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel last?
The Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel product lasts 8 hours on your skin. The bottle lasts about four to five months– I bought a full size 4.2 ounce bottle from Bloomingdales towards the end of January, I use three pumps each night and I’m about half way through at the end of March when I’m writing this post for you. There is a second step lotion that I’d like to start using before I apply the gel, I can’t help but wonder if that will extend my product usage. I’ll keep you posted. Now, let’s move on to my moisturizing gel review. This lightweight gel is perfect for those who want to hydrate their skin without feeling weighed down by heavy creams. It absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth all night long. It’s also oil-free, which is great if you have oily or combination skin, like I do.
Together, these two products make the ultimate spring skincare duo. They work together to cleanse and hydrate the skin, leaving it looking and feeling its best. Plus, the simple and clean packaging looks great on any vanity. I do need to pick up the lotion so I can do the full skin school routine, but two out of three aint bad and I feel confident about the extra exfoliation and moisture that will come from The Clarifying lotion.
So, if you’re looking for a new skincare routine to try out this spring, I highly recommend giving the Clinique All About Clean Facial Soap and Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel a try. Trust me, your skin will thank you!
