Recently I have been road testing Clinique 3-Step Skin Care, you can read my first impressions -here
and now it has been a week it is time to update you on my thoughts
and most importantly how my skin reacted to each product thus far.
For reference each product I have was selected for me by the Clinique team
and matched for my type 2 skin - oily/combination.

Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Mild (Step 1)
I have found this to be enjoyable to use and that it removes my make-up (not my eye make-up_
with ease without being harsh or over stripping my skin of it's moisture.
That being said so far I have found it to balance the oil on my face resulting in my oily zones being less so.
I will admit that this product could potentially dry my skin out should I skip moisturising!

Clinique Clarifying Lotion (Step 2)
Sadly I have had to discontinue using this after around 5 days of use it was simply too much for my skin,
it stings my face leaving it red and a little painful for a few minutes after each use.
Also after each use my skin felt tight and slightly uncomfortable until I moisturised. 
I don't know if this is one of those product requires your skin to adjust and get used to the product?
Either way I have decided that it is best just to leave this product alone for the time being.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion (Step 3)
This product works well and does indeed deliver a great dose of moisture to my skin
without overloading my oily skin or feeling heavy.
What I like best about this product is that it is light enough to be used as a day cream
but hydrating enough to be applied as a night cream for my skin type.
So far I enjoy this product best and is the step I am most likely to purchase at this stage,
however it is very early on in the trial and this may all change.

So there we have my 1 week update, I shall post another after a month has passed.
Have you tried any of the  Clinique 3-step programmes?
