Clinique Summer Glow Must Haves


I happen to fall in love with most everything I review from Clinique.
It's been years since my last Clinique feature so I hope you all enjoy this one and find the information useful. 
These are all products I feel would help one achieve that "Summer Glow" by using everything from Clinique skincare to lip products. Enjoy!
Turnaround Overnight Radiance Moisturizer
$44.50
To simply put it, this is an overnight moisturizer that tones, retexturizes and plumps the skin.
It retexturizes while you sleep by optimizing new cell turnover to help the best and brightest emerge. I believe it will take a couple of weeks to really see a difference. It plumps the skin by pumping in moisture and toning the skin, working at deeper levels of the dermis layer, from the inside out.

Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector
$73 Buy it here
This is a clinical proven serum that visibly reduces dark spots, acne scarring and age spots.
Dermatologist formulated it to be effect yet safe and comfortable. According to clinical trials, this product delivered the same results compared to a leading prescription ingrediant. They do not say which ingredient this is, but I am guessing they compared it to Hydroquinone. They claim that results will be noticed in as little as 4 weeks! And at 12 weeks, you will see a visible reduction in dark spots, age spots and traces of acne damage. For best results, make sure you wear a sunscreen!


Pore Refining Solutions Stay-Matte Hydrator
$37 Buy it here
I LOVE this product! It's an oil-free hydrator that instantly refines pores and controls excess oil.
This oil-free and non-acnegenic formula supplies needed hydration while curbing excess oil and shine for up to eight hours. While instantly refining the look of pores with unique light-scattering optics and controlling unwanted luster, the hydrator keeps T-zones feeling fresh and staying comfortably matte. Skin feels refreshed and renewed. The best part is that they claim that over time your pores will become smaller!

Even Better Makeup SPF 15
$27 Buy it here
This is a dermatologist-developed liquid foundation that immediately brightens and evens out the skintone with naturally luminous minerals.
This is what the claim:
Wear this oil-free Even Better Makeup SPF15 and something amazing happens... Without any makeup, you will see improved clarity, a more even skintone and visibly diminished age spots. These results can be witnessed by all ethnicities in just 4 to 6 weeks. The long-wearing formula provides moderate-to-full coverage and also helps prevent new discolorations with SPF- plus antioxidants.
For best results, partner it with Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector.

Superbalanced Powder Bronzer

This bronzer is oil-free and has added benefits for the skin. I love the grating powder because you get a fresh batch for your face each time you twist the dial. The shade is so neutral! It has NO orange in it at all. It is PERFECT for even the fairest/palest skintones.
