Introducing the new Clinique Fresh Pressed Vitamin C powder cleanser and daily booster – De-aging for the impatient! I mean have you ever heard a better statement for the mid 20 year old (ok to be fare I am nearing the end of my 20s eeek!) That being said I am very aware of the way my skin is starting to change and I am not going to lie it does scare me when I see fine lines on my forehead and larger pores forming around my mouth. I think when you put make up on everyday its quite obvious when you start noticing the changes on your skin.
So of course I was up for the Clinique 7 Day #FreshPressed challenge. Step 1 of the is to cleanse the face using the powder cleanser. This is super simple as each dose is separated into single use sachets which means you don’t need to worry about over using the powder this also protects the potency of the formula, it also makes it easy when traveling just pack the correct amount of sachets needed for each morning. All you do is add open the sachet into your hand add a little water gentle massage onto the skin leave for 1 minute and rinse off. This leaves the skin feeling fresh and clean, not tight or dry at all. (I have combination oily to dehydrated skin)
Next up is to add some booster drops to your moisturiser. These are the niftiest little capsules. Within the tube there is a section where the Vitamin C powder is kept away from the emulsion. To activate peel off the silver foil, press the button to release the powder into the emulsion – shades and then simply mix 2 drops into your moisturiser day and night. Each capsule is made to be used within 7 days thereafter it will lose its potency.
This is what Clinique say will happen with continuous use:
7 days – see remarkably even-toned, retexturized skin, 36% brighter— see a more radiant, evened, smoothed, firmer look.
4 weeks – age spots are visibly reduced by 21%, lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced by 32%.
12 weeks – age spots are visibly reduced by 32%, lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced by 43%, and skin appears visibly lifted by 41%.
The results I have noticed within the 7 day #FreshPressed challenge: Firstly I noticed my skin is a lot plumper and the fine lines have definitely started to diminish. I have also noticed that my pimple scaring have become lighter and the overall texture of my skin is a lot smoother, if this has all happened within 7 days I can’t wait to see what the next month has in store for my results.
The Clinique #FreshPressed 7-Day trial kit is available at Clinique counters nationwide and www.clinique.co.za for R455.
