I can never decide between the two, for either skincare or makeup.

Clarins much better imo particuarly for skin care.

I use Clarins for their body products. Body Moisturiser and their Tonic and Relax Products. Their body scrub is particularly good.

Facial skincare is Clinique wash, toner but I use different moisturisers depending on who has a GWP on at the time!

Make up I am not a fan of either if I am honest. That goes to Smashbox and Bobbi Brown or Chanel for foundation.

Clarins is better for skincare but I only really use Beauty Flash Balm these days.
Clinique make up colours always seem to be better through.
I use Mac more than anything else.

Clarins for me, don't get on with Clinique at all.

clarins here as well.
Don't usually buy their makeup (only foundation in the past) BUT I love their skin care.
Use their creams, facial washes, toners etc. Lovely stuff.

I used clinique when I was younger, loved their colours but I guess as I have aged so has my taste and the amount I spend blush

Clinque skincare can be too harsh and dramatically different moisturiser I thought was pants! I read a review on skincare by a US dermatoligist and she said similar - only with more science!

Going to go against the majority and say Clinique. Have used their skin care and make up since my late teens. I am often complimented and told that I have a lovely complexion and look younger than my 34 years <proud emoticon>!!

Clarins face washes and exfoliators are great esp the shea butter one.
Multi-active day cream and the super-restorative are good, Bi-phase eye make-up remover and hand cream.
I love the body scrub but won't pay £25 for it!

Clinique eye (anything) stuff is very good and their butter lipsticks.

So I suppose, Clarins for face and body and Clinique for make-up.
