Clinique Bonus & Rituals

I got treated to some Clinique products...

I'm a HUGE long term loyal Clinique fan... I know I haven't been blogging about Clinique as much as I have been blogging about Lush; however....if I had to choose whether to give up one of the two (sorry Lush) it would have to be Lush! Yes... that is how amazing Clinique is to me.

I will blog about more of their products in future =)

House of Fraser held their Clinique bonus which consisted of the following...

These are the products bought (not the bonus!). I switch between Clarifying Lotions 2 & 3 depending on seasons. I won't review these now... I plan to blog about Clinique products properly (I'm thinking about reviewing each product individually).

Let's just say...I simply cannot start my day without their Clarifying Lotion.

Clinique's Bonus was presented in a pretty box (however, I was disappointed they did not give away any mini bags...they sometimes do this - but it depends on the store; each store has its own bonus).

The contents of the Bonus...

I have tried Clinique's airbrush concealer before. To keep it short: I wouldn't recommend this. I prefer MAC's or Bobbi Brown's concealer.
Also, this concealer is for fair skin tones only (so keep this in mind in case you're going for this bonus!)

All About Eyes (again, I shall review this at a future post) is an amazing under-eye moisturiser. It keeps the delicate area smooth & soft.

Deep Comfort Body Wash & Body Lotion moisturises very well. However, I wouldn't say they are anything more special compared to other 'more reasonably priced' lotions in the market.

I use this sometimes...Rinse-off Foaming Cleanser is another amazing skincare range. Leaves your face feeling squeaky clean....!

Apart from Clinique's 3 step Skin care products, its Moisture Surge remain my favourite all time product! It works wonders. Again... I'll blog about this separately too in a future post so keep a look out.

I got this sample for free. It's a full sized product too.
Rituals' Foaming Shower Gel -Indian Rose & Sweet Almond Oil smells amazing!
This is initially a gel like liquid which transforms into foam in contact with water. What I do like about this is... it foams up and lathers very well!
However, one thing I wasn't sure of is its smell. It smells amazing! Though.... sometimes I feel that the scent doesn't stay on for as long as I'd hope for...

As it promises: it leaves a silky soft feeling.

Lol and I thought this blog was about modesty and simple living...

Yes, indeed it is. It focuses on products' reviews mainly (so far anyway) because many women are (unfortunately >.<) always on a constant lookout for new hassle-free products - so I thought recommending the best products out there (with my honest opinion) would be helpful and entertaining to read up on.

I capture some of the free-est & simple things in life through photography to portray the beauty of nature & our world.

Also, everything in the blog would not necessarily agree with everyone's
definition of 'Modesty' or 'simple living'(!). It's up to the individual to make up their own minds about how they plan to implement anything in this blog into their lifestyle, for e.g. Personally, I would advise using all the vanity related products/things in one's home rather than outside.

In one of my posts, I highlighted the fact that materialistic things can consume a person so much and is not the key
to happiness: (
Perhaps, I should write more posts like those...and these ...:(

Do comment if you think I can include anything (better) else in my blog!!

I think your blog is great. You teach women how to celebrate themselves, treat themselves and beautify themselves for one reason and one reason only - to love themselves despite outside opinions. Its not about fashion, which is temporary, it is not about being on trend, its about finding ways to nurture yourself.

This blog isn't about vanity, its about learning how to celebrate beauty and life in a way that is non vulgar. I think this is the only way one can truly be modest, by appreciating what they have, for themselves, and no one else.

I honestly think you deserve more credibility, and hundreds of followers =D
keep up the great work!!!

what are you doing reading a woman's blog anyway?
I think the advice in here is excellent and hopefully is guiding many people to making better choices.

I don't see you doing anything on this earth to make it better..?

Get a life.

Sorlisa, great posts, keep it up please!

Lol @ Anon. I refuse to reply anonymous comments.

Sorlisa, thanks for your detailed response. I will be checking the links you have mentioned.

Ebanehita - thank you for your comment!! ^.^
You've said it exactly as how I'd want to =)

I'm glad to know that my blog appeals to you in the exact way I want it to. Because this blog is indeed about celebrating both life & beauty.
Although I do a lot of materialistic reviews, they are just recommendations. The best things in life are simple... be it a handmade cup of chocolate, a photograph depicting the changing seasons & other random things in life, a warm candle lit bath, a warm embrace...

Simple things like those can make a huge difference to one's life =)

The Clinique scents smells amazing! Though sometimes I feel that the scent doesn't stay on for as long but this one is entirely different and I just loved it. I got it from Clinique bonus time available at Belk.
