There are some great duty free beauty buys available from Clinique at the moment, so I thought I would run you through them. This batch has particularly good options for existing Clinique skincare users, as well as a few gorgeous makeup palettes.
For Clinique skincare fans there’s a great offer on their 3-step system. You can buy a nice and big 200ml Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion, and with that you’ll receive a 30ml Liquid Facial Soap and one of two 60ml exfoliator options. Great if you’re an existing user – you can just grab a top-up at excellent value – it’s a total steal at R476.
Another Clinique skincare offer is three very niftily packaged 30ml tubes of Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, together with mini sizes of All About Eyes, High Impact Mascara and Superbalm in Raspberry. These are all packaged in a BPA-free water bottle (meaning it’s safe to wash and reuse) with a wide neck – I love those because you can chuck ice cubes into them. Get it for R603.
The final products are three super pretty makeup compacts inspired by iconic travel destinations – New York, Seoul and London. They’re all variations of neutrals and I’m a big fan of the New York Palette pictured here. The six shadows and one blush are all perfectly pigmented and blend well. Furthermore the compact is really sturdy and there’s a full size mirror in the lid, which makes it a very practical travel- and handbag product. I’m not a fan of the applicators provided – but then I never am, so it’s not really a fair criticism. These are also great value at R638.
