clinique gift with purchase_3

It’s that time of year when we are thinking about gifts and special purchases for the people we love in our life, but it’s always nice to get something special for ourselves, right?! And when it’s a guilt free gift it’s even better!

Clinique has been a favorite beauty brand for me since my teenage years. It was literally the first brand my mom took me to the make-up counter to get my very own products from. And I have been an avid fan ever since. I love their simple ingredients and gentle products – the combination is perfect for everyday, as well as pregnancy.

I took the opportunity to stock up on a few favorites on a recent trip to the Houston Galleria and, as always, I was surprised and delighted by their carefully curated selection in the Clinique gift with purchase. The bright and cheery makeup bag came with a thoughtful collection of their best sellers from their skin-care line like the rinse-off eye make up remover (a personal favorite), the liquid mild facial soap (another personal favorite) and the even better daily moisturizer with SPF 20 (yep, another favorite!). If these products are already stocked in your beauty cabinet, tuck them away for your next get-away because they are all conveniently travel size! (So now you have a cute new travel bag stocked with your favorites!)

I stuck the chubby stick in my purse to have on the go when I need an afternoon touch up on my cheeks. It’s easy to apply without a brush so it’s perfect on the go! I actually put everything else in my handbag to have when I need a little touch up or when something unexpected comes up during a day I left the house without any makeup. Natural eye shadows, mascara, and a lip stick with just the right amount of color are all I need for a make-over on the go!
