Clinique - new Superdefense SPF 20 (very dry to combination)

Me and my skin are back from the mountains :)

I spent a wonderful week in the snow up in the mountains with my family. The weather was just great, sunny but cold, extremely cold.

Well in fact I wasn't suffering because of the cold weather, but actually my skin did.

As you might already know I have a combination skin. The light moisturisers I usually apply weren't enough. I luckily had some NEW Clinique Superdefense SPF 20 samples with me and therefore I decided it was the right moment to test it.





These samples were for "very dry to combination skin" and since I have a combination skin I was a little bit skeptical whether I should use them or not.... but in fact this was my eventual only salvation therefore I gave it a try.

The Clinique New Superdefense SPF 20 is a white, light pasty cream but in spite of that it sinks very fast. The feeling on my skin was nice, not sticky at all. Surprisingly I've also noticed an improvement in the look of my skin, for some reasons all imperfections were like smoothed. Very significant is that even my husband told me "you look nice with that make up", but in fact I wasn't wearing any :D The cream is not conceived to hide imperfection but in fact it slightly did it on my, which is never a bad thing ;)

The cream has anti age properties and plus it has a SPF 20, so I didn't have to add any extra sun screen.

Well I was so happy to have those samples in my beautycase because this cream saved my skin, literally! It really provided like a barrier to my skin, which became immediately soft and smooth. I've been using it for the rest of my holiday in the mountains.

This wouldn't probably be the right cream for me for the rest of the year because it is quite rich, but it's just perfect when it's very cold and windy. Anyway Clinique also launched a "combination oily to oily skin" version. Will try that one for sure, too.


*********************************

Sono da poco rientrata dalla montagna dove ho passato una splendida settimana sulle nevi e sotto il sole. Malgrado il bellissimo tempo la mia pelle ne ha risentito parecchio, tanto da farmi quasi male :( Evidentemente la mia crema quotidiana non era sufficiente ad idratarla adeguatamente in quelle condizioni.

Mi sono recata in profumeria e ho trovato dei campioncini della nuovissima Superdefense SPF 20 di Clinique, nella versione per pelli da secche a molto secche (notare che io ho una pelle mista talvolta con impurità).

Ragazze questa crema mi ha salvato la vita, non credevo, ma già dalla prima applicazione la pelle era come superidratata e riparata. Inoltre (forse per i siliconi presenti) la pelle appariva più bella, come levigata, uniformata, seppur leggermente. Questa non é una caratteristica descritta tra le proprieté del prodotto... ma di fatto io ho avuto questa sensazione, e ancora più di fatto pure mio marito appena mi ha vista mi ha detto " come stai bene con quel trucco!" (il che é tutto dire...).

Tra le caratteristiche decantate, invece, appaiono le proprietà anti età e un bel filtro spf 20 che non guasta mai, no??

Come detto questa da me provata era la versione per pelli da secche a molto secche, e forse visto che la mia pelle era davvero messa male non ho avuto alcun problema. Ad ogni modo esiste anche la versione per pelli da miste a grasse. Val la pena tenerla in considerazione per la bella stagione ;)

Spero abbiate trovato utile la recensione. Lasciatemi il vostro commento :)
