Clinique Bonus Time

Clinque are currently offering “Bonus Time” until 28 March 2015 where you get a free sample set when you buy two products (one to be skincare). It just so happened that I needed to pick up two Clinique products so it timed in perfectly.

The samples come in this hideous makeup bag (sorry Clinique, it’s just not to my taste). The gift includes:

  1. Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+
  2. Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips
  3. Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Pink Love
  4. Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes in Lavish Lilac
  5. High Lengths Mascara in Black
  6. Eyelash Curler
  7. All packed in a floral cosmetics bag


I’m excited to try out the Chubby Stick Shadow Tint as the formula looks promising. The blush is a nice colour but it has sparse but big chunks of glitter in it, I would have preferred a more dense shimmer.

The mascara wand looks interesting! I’ll let you know how I get on with it.

Over all I think the gift is very generous, especially if you were planning on making a purchase anyway. If you’re interested to see what I brought to qualify for the free gift then keep reading.

Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm (£22 for 125ml)

This is my second or third pot of the stuff, I love it. I use it in the evening to remove my makeup. The texture is a bit like lard, but if you can get over that then scoop a bit inbetween your hands and massage all over your face to break down makeup, then simply wipe off with a warm flannel.

High Impact Curling Mascara (£18 for 8ml)

I’ve tried this mascara a long time ago and remember liking it, so I thought I’d revisit it. I’ll let you know if my opinion has changed or not.

(All products, except the free gift, were purchased by myself)
