What Is Clinique?

Clinique is an American skincare company and one of the first brands with a dermatological approach to skincare; the company was launched in 1968.

Clinique also has a "gift with purchase" policy to make customers happier with their purchases. 


What Does Clinique Sell?

Like many other famous brands, Clinique products, including bronzers, moisturizers, cleansers, concealers, serums, masks, exfoliators, etc., are supposed to hydrate skin, improve skin texture, smooth skin, and reduce fine lines. 


Where Can I Buy Clinique Products?

There are different ways to buy the brand's products, and choosing one completely depends on your preferences. More than one hundred stores in the world sell Clinique products.

Best powder ever!

It’s the best powder I’ve ever used!!! It covers but you can’t see the powder on my face!!! It’s not cakes or dry looking.

Not the best

I usually use smashbox halo powder but it was out of stock in my colour. I tried this at the recommendation of a beauty advisor. I like how it looks and feels; the colour doesn't change over the course of the day and doesn't crease. I have very oily skin and I find that it doesnt keep my skin as matte as I would like and the staying power only lasts half the day. I prefer makeup I dont have to touch up.

Love it. Just the right color and lessen the oil in my face.

Complete Fail

If I could give this 0 stars I would. The sponge itself just wipes off your make up. The formula is very dry and chalky. I have oily skin and was looking for something that I could use for touch ups throughout the day, well my Revlon pressed powder that I've had for months knocked this out of the park. I was wanting to dry something more expensive thinking it would be a better result but nope. Back to Revlon I go.

  • Lindamu

This is my go-to, it looks natural on the face, doesn't cause break-outs, and gives good coverage for someone who doesn't like a caked-on look.

  • startovr

I don’t like loose powders for all over the face so this is perfect. Even though it’s pressed it sets without looking cakey. It isn’t completely invisible though, it adds a smidge if coverage. Like the tiniest smidgey smidge.

  • Csaltz

Was really bummed about this because I love Clinique and use their Even Better foundation - but this powder looked cakey and every time i put it on, I felt like it took off a layer of my concealer so I'd have to reapply to cover my spots after putting this on. Also, not to mention... I still get shiny an hour later. Big disappointment :(

  • PJLynn

Pressed so hard it is difficult to use. Color end up patchy after a couple hours.

Go to powder

My go to powder! It gives a very light and fresh look. It doesn’t feel heavy or cakey. It gives just that little umph that you need to have a polished look without too much makeup. It doesn’t break out my skin (which is normally sensitive to powders) and it doesn’t make me oily. I don’t feel like my makeup is complete without adding this powder.

  • Shabin


Best powder. I liked it and would repurchase again.

  • sher220

I generally like Clinique, but this wasn’t my favorite. The mask is so thin that I’m not sure you can call it a mask and it doesn’t stay on very well. It’s also not as exfoliating as I would have liked. It didn’t do anything negative, I’m just not sure it did anything at all. Also, the snap lid can be nearly impossible to open; I’ve broken several nails trying to use it.


  • TennisTony

Leaves my face baby soft. This is my favorite clay mask with physical exfoliation. Dries down super quickly and a little goes a long way. I tend to leave this one for a while well after it dries down. Then I take it off in the shower with a light hand to move the scrub around to really slough off dead skin. The texture is super fine and uniform. Afterwards, skincare soaks in better and make up applies smoothly on top.

  • dyonisa

the best ever

Obsessed!! This is the best mask ever. It clears my pores and leaves my skin looking so clean and fresh!


  • BCislandGirl

Sadly Not For Me

I got this with a few other Clinique products and was excited to try this because I love Clinique and I love masks. I've used this three times now and every time I've used it my face is left red and inflamed. I do not have sensitive skin at all so I don't know why my skin is reacting this way but I'm guessing there is an ingredient that I'm reacting negatively with. Sadly I will not be trying to use this again and will most likely throw it away. This is the first Clinique product out of many that doesn't agree with me so I believe this to be an isolated incident.

  • DeeDee Beloussov

Seems to be great.

Love it so far.


  • Adam

Description misleading.

This product description is wrong. I purchased it thinking that by paying a little bit more I would be getting a slightly larger quantity. Not true. The product is 3.4 oz just like in retail stores and you can purchase at Ulta for $28. I will be returning this item.
