I was invited to attend an event with the Southampton Bloggers at Clinique Southampton, located in John Lewis and Partners, West Quay.
I love trying new brands, beauty and skin care products so when this opportunity came up to go to the Clinique event I was very excited. I have always heard amazing things about the company, skin care and beauty range of Clinique but haven’t had the opportunity to learn about or try any of them out.
Arriving to the styling suits in the John Lewis store we were greeted with smiles and a glass of prosecco. The room was the room of dreams! Everything in there was styled from John Lewis and had tables filled with the Clinique products.
They kicked off the evening by introducing themselves and what they do for the company. The women who were running in evening were absolutely fantastic! They were so passionate when they spoke but not only this, they really knew their stuff! As a reflection of Clinique as a brand, it was an excellent start. They went though a card with us all to determine what skin type we are; in order to advise us on the best products for us to use. After filling out the form, they explained the number system they use which I never knew about.
Your skin type will give you a number and from there all the products Clinique supply have numbers for you to know which you can use on you skin type! I think this is so clever and such a straight forward idea for a beauty brand. They also take the time to discover what you want to achieve from your skin, not the issues you have with it. This is such a positive way to look at beauty, asking what you want and advising how you can achieve this rather than pointing out flaws.
It turns out I was Number 3 skin type, Oily combination. This means all the No.3 products or the ‘all skin type’ products are suitable for my skin – they also try and match the colour of your skin type to the colour of the product, so I would be pink. It made me realise if I took the time to actually talk to the people who work here I would have known this a long time ago!
After being given all the information they let us have a little look around the room to see the products they sell. They spoke about what they supplied and how they can help you improve your skin.
Not only this but they supplied us with a colour match service to help us find our perfect shade in their Even Better Refresh foundation, which they supplied us with a full size one to take home and try! I was the shade Bone.
Since trying the foundation at home, I think it is great! It gives such a even coverage without being too heavy and gives the fresh glowey look which is so on trend at the moment.
I cannot fault the products of Clinique and even more so cannot fault the amazing service they supply. The staff were absolutely fantasic and were so informative throughout the evening and I can safely say I have been converted to Clinique. Their are so many products I want to try, and not because they were trying to sell them to us, because they were informing us about the benefits.
Clinique is not just a beauty brand but they use dermatologically proven science, hence why the staff still wear lab coats as uniform.
They supplied us with some goody bags to top it all off with some great little samples inside. I cannot wait to try out more of their products.
I would highly recommend all the products we tried out with Clinique as they are genuinely great. If you are looking for some advise on your skin, looking to try a new brand or are stocking up, get down to Clinique and chat to the advisers. They have so much knowledge and their skin type system could really help you out in knowing a little more about achieving what you want – I know they have certainly helped me!
I can’t thank Clinique Southampton enough along with the Southampton Bloggers for another exceptional event.
