Custom-fit Skin Care from Clinique

My friends and I were in for a treat when we got invited to Clinique Coffee at Rustan's Makati, where we were given free skin consultations and sampling over coffee.

They asked questions about our skin using the Clinique Computer to determine our skin types, and gave us samples of the corresponding products from their "3-Step System" that suited each of us.

As I mentioned in a previous entry, I tried Clinique's skin care system before but stopped after a few years. After my recent Clinique consultation, I realized that the reason why my mom didn't see the results she wanted on my skin was probably because I wasn't using the products properly. The three steps are to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize, and I admit that I overdid the exfoliating part when I was younger. I also didn't follow the steps consistently everyday, skipping it when I was too tired to put on any other product after washing my face, or forgetting to moisturize after exfoliating. I guess these are common mistakes for young girls, but being patient and committed to achieving great skin will do wonders for your complexion--just think of it as pampering!

You can also have Clinique Coffee at a counter near you on Mondays or Tuesdays. Contact Clinique's Marketing Manager, Ms. May Samson, at 0917-535-1805 to schedule an appointment.

Hope you'll have as much fun as we did!
