Clinique Three Little Soaps: Review

Good Day Beautifuls'
I was desperate to get a good cleanser, I had been using clearasil while I stayed at my boyfriends house during summer, and was using my mums elemis pro-radiance cleanser while I stayed at home. I wanted my own, I had slept at my friends a couple of nights and had a bath at hers, and she let me use her clinique soaps, at first glance they seemed amazing and when we went shopping I picked on up in HoF for £12.50. I have been using it for over a month now, I've been alternating between cleansers as I am never in the same bed more than 3 nights a week, but one week I was in my bed, at my mums for a full week and BAM, SPOTS ALL OVER MY CHIN. 

Its really annoying when that happens because you get a good cleanser to basically get rid of your spots and here I was using a prestigious beauty brand who has won award after awards for amazing skincare and it was making me a zitty mess, my high hopes were shattered.
I spoke to my friend after it happened and told her what had gone off with my face and she relayed the same message on to me, "yeah it happened to me to" she says nonchalauntly, like it didnt affect her, "it brings all the crap to the top of you face so the more you use it the better it gets" she carried on, my friend april could litteraly do adverts for clinique the way she was trying to sell my ALREADY BOUGHT product to me. 
I have dry skin, something thats been described as normal yet dehydrated complexion, april on the otherhand has still dehydrated skin but its oily, our makeup sits totally different on our skin, she prefers the matte stuff, I prefer the dewy stuff. We have often swapped foundations because hers is too "greasy" and mine is to "powdery".
Zits aren't my only problem with the little soaps either, my face is frightfully tight after using it. I felt like the zombie in hocus pocus when he cuts open his mouth and stretches his face to talk. I have scrunch my face and when I do, it stings, my hole face seems chapped almost. I dont think its suitable for dry skin, yet the girl at the counter was so eager to give me what I wanted even though it was not suitable for me, leading me to have overall dissatisfaction with the product. I'm going to carry on using it to see if it does what my friend says it will eventually do, but right now I'm not looking forward to it.

On a positive note however, they are ridiculously cute. They are sizeable just to fit in the palm of my hand (probably a bit wider than palm) and get enough foam to apply to the face, the little pot is also cute so your shower doesnt actually wash it away with moisture and they are perfect for travel. So its not all negative. I'm sure once I get used to the process of the tight face and having to apply moisturiser DIRECTLY after a hot wash, I wont have any problems.

Have you tried The Three Little Soaps from clinique? What did you think of them and whats your skin type? Did you break out first time like me? I'd love to know more about this product and how it suits you, so leave a comment in the comments. Thank you.

  1. It's a shame that you didn't enjoy these :( I really love mine! I think it's normal that your skin may breakout/react to using a new product, but it does start to work after awhile! As I said on my blog, maybe go back to them and see what they say (if you want to stick with Clinique!)
