Clinique mini haul

I’m a completely suker for Clinique bonus time… or any bonus time/ 3 for 2/ extra advantage card points/ free gifts/ new products… you name it!

Luckily (or should I say unfortunately!) there is a big Boots just been opened right near my office so I’m in there every few days looking at what’s new, on offer or just catches my eye.  My purse has never been so empty!

This year I’ve promised myself will be the year of using up stuff because I always find that if I buy new products and prefer them to my old products, that the old ones end up sitting in a draw in my bedroom never to see the light of day until I’m foreced to have a clear out.

With this is mind, I DID need a new mascara as my old one didn’t seem to be working as well anymore (although it’s so hard to tell when a mascara has actually run out, isn’t it). But when I found out it was bonus time, I did stock up on eye cream.  I always use the same Clinique eye cream, so I figured this didn’t break my rule.

I bought:

High impact curling mascara.  This is the best mascara I’ve found so far, it doesn’t blow me away (alas I don’t think I’ll ever find the perfect mascara) but I miss it when I try another one and it’s very long lasting (in fact, it’s a pain to get off!)

I also bought:

All about the eyes rich.  I haven’t used the rich one before,  but I get such dry skin around my eyes if I’m not careful that I thought I’d go for it.

In the bonus time I got:

·      Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense moisturiser
·      Eye shadow compact in French Vanilla, Night Plum and Stone Violet
·      Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle and UV Damage Corrector
·      High Impact Mascara
·      Superblam Moisturising Gloss in Grapefruit
·      Liquid Facial Soap
·      Cosmetics bag

I’m not a big fan of gloss, I don’t like the feel of it on my lips, so that will be straight on ebay but I’m excited about the serum because I’ve wanted to try that out for a while and it’s a good travel size.  

I’m not 100% sure about keeping the eye shadow, I have a lot of colours similar, what do you think? Should I try it?



  1. You should definitely try it, there's always something a little different about each shadow, even if they are the same color. (:

    1. Good point. Guess I wouldn't make much on ebay anyway :) x

  2. I love bonus time! It's always good to stock up on your favourites :) xxx

    1. especially if free stuff is involved! xxx

  3. I am not impressed with clinique mascaras. they always fail me. :( I think that the bonus is exciting! There are lots of things inside! :))

    I found you through blog hop! Hope you would drop by my blog! :)

    1. I know what you mean, I sometimes think I'll never find the perfect mascara! xx
