Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Lotion || REVIEW

"Introducing NEW Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Lotion SPF 20, a moisturizing formula for oilier skins. Creates a more even appearing skin tone. Protects skin with a high level UVA/UVB protection, while instantly brightening and clarifying the skins appearance " 

I got my hands on this product a while ago now when it was Clinique bonus time and i managed to get a whole tin of sample products to try out. I have always been interested in the 'even better' line of products from Clinique since i frequently have blemishes therefore uneven skin tone and pigmentation as a result. First time i dispensed this product was very strange, it was a very runny liquid formulation and very easy to apply all over the face. I really dislike the scent of this as it smells very artificial and medicinal to me which i'm sure that there are some people out there who doesn't mind it and might quite like the scent!

I find that the product left a greasy film on my face which made my application of foundation very difficult so while i was trying out this product, i stuck to a minimal foundation routine which was actually reasonably easy as i work as a student nurse and make-up has to be kept subtle! On days which i wore no foundation at all, the greasiness just gets worse and i end up having to blot every couple of hours or so because it looked so awful and the feel of it on my face was horrible.

Regardless, i wanted to hold up on trying this product until it ran out to give it a good go and hope that it will lighten my pigmentations on my face making my skin-tone more even. So in conclusion, i have learnt that this product is definitely not suitable for oily skin like mine. It is also not suitable for people who doesn't enjoy greasy products on their skin. Most of all, it didn't do anything to even out my skin-tone and i majorly disappointed even after using this regularly for several weeks now.

Have you tried any products from Clinique?

  1. I find Clinique products are really hit and miss! They have some gems but others are dreadful. I'm disappointed to see that this didn't actually do what it says it should. I have pigmentation on my skin so I'm looking for something to correct it, but I'll be giving this a miss! xx

  3. I have spotty face too, and prefer something color-correcting. However, if it leaves a greasy film, it hinders me from purchasing.

  4. That's disappointing that it felt so greasy on your face! I would really dislike that, especially as my skin can get quite oily.
