Clinique is one of those brands that seem to do simple, fuss free skincare that suit everyone. For a higher end brand I don't think the prices are ridiculous and they do some lovely items if you're just jumping on the skincare bandwagon!

For the morning time I like to keep my skincare simple and I don't like to use to many products because lets be honest, who has time for a full blown skincare routine in the morning?..
Using a light moisturiser that hydrates but sinks in and is a good base for makeup is a must. I love the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion (£29.00) because it's exactly that! I used to use this and have rediscovered it and have found it the perfect moisturiser to use before makeup. This also comes in a gel formula for oily skins, but the lotion is geared towards normal/dry.

Under eyes its exactly the same story and their All About Eyes Cream (£26.00) is a must as well! It reduces puffiness and you only need a little bit so this will last you. The formula is a cream-gel and it holds makeup under the eyes really well. I'm not massively adventurous when it comes to eye creams so when I find one I like I do tend to stick to it and this one I can see being repurchased many many times!
