This clever new range allows you to fully customise your skin care

Clinique iD Reviews

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about these serum-infused moisturisers

Beauty Crew Digital Content Editor / August 28 2020

The product

When you think of customised skin care regimens, it’s likely Clinique’s iconic 3-Step system springs to mind. In fact, back when it launched in 1968, it was the first custom-fit skin care range of its kind.

And now Clinique is taking customised skin care to the next level with its new Clinique iD custom-blend moisturisers.

The product contains three different Hydration Bases (jelly, lotion and gel), that can be paired with one of five Active Cartridge Concentrates to address a variety of skin concerns including irritated/delicate skin, pores and uneven skin texture, uneven skin tone, fatigue, and lines and wrinkles.

But that’s not all… To take the guesswork out of which components to choose, Clinique have introduced their Clinical Reality™ tool that analyses your skin and matches you with the best Clinique iD blend. But that’s a whole ‘nother story in itself, which you can read all about here.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this product to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew invited a panel of women aged 18 to 54 to participate in a hands-on Review Crew® event with Clinique. Clinique’s National Retail Education Manager Rene Benkenstein attended the event along with a team of Clinique experts to assist Review Crew® members with using the Clinical Reality® tool and selecting their customised Clinique iD hydrators.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Clinique iD:

The effectiveness of the Clinical Reality® tool: The Review Crew® was impressed by the level of detail and personalisation the Clinical Reality® tool gave when identifying their skin concerns and providing recommendations.

That the product was customisable: Many of the panel mentioned how much they loved the customisable nature of the product and liked that they were able to choose their preferred Hydrator Base (based on their texture preference) to go with their recommended Active Cartridge Concentrate.

How well their individual skin concerns were treated: Reviewers were excited by the improvement they saw in their skin concerns after using their customised formula for just two weeks. They were also impressed by how hydrating the formulas were.

The verdict

“Over the past month, I've been using the moisturising lotion base paired with the green serum for irritated skin. So far this has dramatically improved my rosacea, calming down the redness on my face with active ingredients such as aloe vera. The base is perfect for my dry/combination skin, it absorbs quickly into my skin leaving it feeling fresh and clean without that annoying sticky feeling other moisturises tend to give. The Clinique ID has completely changed the game for moisturisers, I cannot recommend this enough!”

“THIS PRODUCT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE! I have been using this product for a little over a fortnight now and the change in my skin has been amazing! I got the lightweight clear jelly with the fatigue insert and found after using it morning and night that my skin has not only been clearer but also that I look awake, more refreshed and my bags and lines are less noticeable! This product is revolutionary in the skincare world and I am in love!”

“Can I use more than 5 stars to tell you how much I love this product? No? Well, then I'm afraid you're going to have to listen to me wax lyrical about how amazing this little pump of happiness really is! I found the hydrating jelly to basically sink into my skin, absorbed within seconds, and that is definitely not an exaggeration! With the help of the clever little smart screen at the Clinique counter, I ended up getting the Uneven Texture. Given that I'm Asian, with some degree of pigmentation, I thought that it did a good job of picking the right one for me. The results have been good, and I've been really pleased with this duo.”
