Free Pick & Mix Gift Set at Clinique Debenhams [AD]

October 9, 2020

[AD PRESS SAMPLE] I was sent the products featured in this post with no obligation to feature them. All opinions are my own.

If you’ve never heard of the brand Clinique before, they’re a skincare, make-up and fragrance brand that have very quickly become one of my new favourite beauty brands. I was contacted by one of the lovely ladies that work at Clinique Debenhams in Birmingham Bullring and she very kindly invited me to pop into the store to talk about their current gift offers during October.

Before I go into more detail about the gift offers and the products included, I just wanted to mention how polite and helpful the ladies on the Clinique Debenhams counter were. Due to the current pandemic, we weren’t able to test out any products in-store but they gave me plenty of useful information on each individual item and encouraged me to get in touch if I ever have any questions about anything. I always think having such amazing customer service is a massive plus when it comes to cosmetics counters as if you’re a little unsure what would best suit your skin type or you’re after something specific, it’s a massive bonus to be made to feel comfortable enough to just ask.

Moving onto the gifts that are currently on offer, Clinique regularly have different exciting discounts or freebies up for grabs which I didn’t know about until recently! I had always considered the majority of the cosmetics counters in Debenhams to be out of my price range so it’s great to know that there’s plenty of chances to land a bargain if you’re on a budget. From now until Saturday 17th October, when you buy any two Clinique Debenhams items (one of them being a skincare or foundation product) you get a pick and mix style gift bag consisting of 6 sample sized items. I think this is such an amazing offer as it means you can try out several different sample sized products to get a taster as to which ones work best for you. This offer is available both in-store and online so if you’d rather not hit the shops, you can still make the most of this offer from the comfort of your own home.

In addition to the pick and mix offer, if you purchase one more Clinique Debenhams product (so three in total) you can also receive a full sized Mild Liquid Facial Soap worth £17.50. This is a dermatologist developed liquid soap that dispenses from a pump to thoroughly cleanse your skin, preparing it for the rest of your skincare routine. This pairs nicely with some of the sample products included in the pick and mix selection so it’s definitely worth investing in if you want to try out a wide array of Clinique products.

The first product available in the pick and mix gift bag is their Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser. This is formulated to remove all make-up, dirt and excess oils that have built up throughout the day so that your skin is completely clean of an evening. Making sure your skin has had a deep cleanse at the end of each day is so important as otherwise, excess oils and dirt can build up in your pores which becomes really hard to remove. I absolutely love this cleanser but it can be quite drying (this is often the case with foam face washes) so make sure to use a hydrating moisturiser or serum afterwards.

Next is their Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly which is a lightweight water-based jelly designed to deliver 24 hour hydration as well as protect your skin from pollution. This is suitable for all skin types but I feel like it would be particularly beneficial if you have oily skin as it leaves no extra residue on your face. This is a perfect product to wear underneath make-up as the hyaluronic acid in the formula helps to keep your skin hydrated whilst also being oil-free so your make-up won’t slide around throughout the day.

The next product is their Moisture Surge 96-Hour Hydro-Filler Eye Concentrate, another water-based skincare product that is perfect if you suffer with dark circles or dry skin around the eyes. The formula is designed to tighten and brighten your eye area as well as keeping it hydrated for up to 96 hours. This is another product that is ideal for wearing underneath make-up due to its oil-free formula but it can also be used as an intensive 3 minute eye mask if your eye area needs some extra care.

Moving from skincare onto make-up products, the next item is their Even Better Pop Lipstick in the shade ‘Subtle.’ This is the perfect name for this shade as it is exactly that, it’s a perfect everyday lipstick that can be applied as a sheer wash of colour or built up for a more intense pink based nude. I love how versatile this lipstick is and I can definitely see me purchasing this lipstick in additional shades as the formula is amazing, it’s so comfortable that I barely remember I’m wearing it.

The next make-up product on offer is their High Impact Mascara in Black, this is my personal favourite of the bunch as it’s become one of my new favourite mascaras. This gives my lashes so much volume and length and the brush is designed to coat and separate each individual lash. I’ve been using this daily since I received it as it makes my lashes feel super fluttery. It has also been ophthalmologist tested which means it’s suitable for even the most sensitive of eyes.

The final make-up product in the pick and mix selection is their Quickliner Eye Intense in Intense Midnight, I don’t very often use pencil eyeliners as I find that they can be quite difficult to apply. This is the complete opposite, it glides across my eyelids like an absolute dream and has such a creamy formula so it’s easy to buff out if you’re going for a smoky look. I’ve been using loving a smoked out, subtle wing lately (pictured above) and this pencil liner is ideal for this as it takes literally seconds to apply and blend it.

Make sure to head over to the Debenhams website before Saturday 17th October if you’d like to take advantage of this offer, it’s absolutely ideal if you’re wanting to try out a range of different Clinique products without having to purchase all of the full sized versions at once.

Have you tried any Clinique products before?

    What a lovely little gift bag, I’ve only ever tried one product from Clinique which was one of their lipsticks and I loved it, I didn’t realise they had offers on so regularly, they’ve been so generous with this one.
