I went in to town today with a mission – a new concealer and a lip primer were needed! I was just on my way out of Boots when I said I would pop by the Clinique counter to see if they had anything suitable. Sure enough I decided on the Clinique Airbrush concealer and the All About Lips products. Then I was informed that Clinique Bonus Time was currently available which offers a free beauty bag with some Clinique goodies with the purchase of two or more Clinique products. This is available until August 17th in Boots stores in Ireland and the UK and is filled with some pretty awesome treats.
The free beauty bag consists of the following: 1) High impact mascara/long last glosswear duo, 2) Moisture surge extended thirst relief, 3) Mini nail files, 4) All about eyes, 5) Liquid facial soap mild and 6) A different nail enamell for sensitive skins.
First up is a really cute beauty duo of high impact mascara and long last glosswear. I have used this mascara before and I really liked it. The compact duo is great for leaving in your handbag for touch-ups. The lip gloss is shade 08 guavagold which is a nice pale pink shimmer colour. It promises 8 hours of glistening shine so I am looking forward to trying this.
This moisturiser is a very generous size and provides 12 hours of refreshing moisturization. I have not tried this moisturiser before and am looking forward to using it as it feels really light and soothing. It can also be used over your make up for a midday boost (not sure if I would try it like this!) or as a five minute mask.
These handy mini nail files are also included. I am forever looking for a nail file in my handbag they always seem to disappear so I will definitely make use of these.
All about eyes is a 100% fragrance free cream/gel which can be used day or night around the eyes. It reduces the look of puffiness and also helps hold make up in place which sounds great. I like the lightweight feel of this cream and look forward to trying it out.
I have received the face wash in a bonus time package before and found it great for adding to my travel beauty bag. It is a mild formula for dry to combination skin which I think will be ok for sensitive skin too and it is recommended that you use the soap twice daily.
The last item in this Clinique Bonus Time is a mini nail polish in shade pinkini which is a cute light pink shade. It claims to be different because the nail colour is specially formulated for sensitive skin and eyes. I wondered why a nail polish referred to sensitive eyes but I believe the vapours can irritate some peoples eyes while they are painting them.
I think all of these items are perfect for someone who does a lot of travelling as they are all cute mini sizes. Bonus Time is great for trying out Clinique products which you may not have used before.
Have you got this Bonus Time gift yet? How do you think it compares to previous Bonus Time’s?
