Alternatives to Clinique?

(11 Posts)

Does anyone have any recommendations for skincare/face wash etc that I might like if I currently use Clinique? Ideally something a little cheaper... everything seems to run out at the same time and costs me a bomb to replace every few months. I feel like it is good to my skin, but I am willing to try other brands if it will save me a bit of money at the momentsmile I use their make up too so any recommendations welcome.

Thank you in advance!

I use Cerave skincare now. The hydrating cleanser , SPF moisturiser and eye cream. I do still find I need a decent make up remover so still use Clinique cleansing oil at night. Then I use a facial oil at night . Whatever is available at Tk Maxx, made from natural oils.
Still use Clinique make up though as sadly I've had so many reactions over the years using other products.

It depends on what you're currently using? FWIW I don't think it's necessary to spend lots on skincare at all.
I also use Cerave cleansers, both the hydrating cleanser and the SA cleanser. Cerave is a good, reasonably priced brand.

Go to Boots and get Avene. I used to use Clinique, this stuff is great.

Ooo I haven't even heard of Cerave before, I'll have a look at the range. I use Clinique face wash, clarifying lotion and hydrating jelly. Plus my foundation, mascara, blusher etc. It all adds up blush so if I can find an alternative that works I'll go for it. Thank you!

I really like body shop tea tree face wash, it lasts ages. Then I slather the clinique moisture surge intense on. I find its cheaper per 100ml to buy bigger tubs direct from clinique

Also Eyeko mascara is good. My kids bought me the mini trial pack last Xmas. All but one Clinique mascara irritates my eyes and I would end up with panda eyes by the end of the day. The Eyeko ones are much better and stay put so well it can be difficult to remove☺️
The Clinique Clarifying lotion contains salicylic acid in it i think. Cerave do a salicylic acid cleanser which will achieve the same thing in one go.

I like Liz Earle. It doesn't cause breakouts, feels good, smells nice etc.

Simple, available in most supermarkets, usually on 3 for 2 and really good for sensitive skin, and very inexpensive. I buy this when I need a whole lot of Clinique stuff at once and it is a good substitute.
