Clinique Facial Soap reviewTuesday, April 07, 2015
A few months ago I bought a facial soap for combination to oily skin from Clinique. I started using it straight away every evening. I didn't change any other part of my skin care regime, as my sensitive combination skin doesn't like many changes.
I had read so many positive reviews on this product, my friend even urged me to try it herself. The £16 soap bar comes with a dish, it's packed nicely and from the size of it, it looks like it could last years!
I didn't notice many changes to begin with. My face felt clean and soft as it normally would after washing. Days later, my skin started to become quite dry. I thought it was a good thing, as my T-zone is quite oily and that was the reason I bought the bar in the first place! A week later I started getting clogged pores, especially on my nose. I kept using it following this for two months - I thought my skin needed to get used to the soap over time but my issues just got worse. I started breaking out much more than usual, my face was becoming blemished and I began getting spots on my cheeks, nose and chin. My forehead had never been so bad, there were small pimples everywhere!
It has been a couple of days since I stopped using the product, I have since gone back to my old L'Oreal Paris Youth Code Foaming Gel Cleanser. My skin is slowly getting better and I am trying not to touch it or irritate it by wearing too much make up. Clinique skin care products seem a bit too harsh on my skin.
What have your experiences been with the Clinique Facial Soap bar? Did it work for you?
