Fancy giving skin a boost? This time of year, I don’t know about you but my skin looks like it needs a holiday to recover from all that festive spirit. Dry, grey, fed up about the lack of daylight, this is when I find it important to use the right skincare products. Some of these problems can be put down to lack of hydration. So if you find that your skin feels tight or lines and wrinkles appear a little more noticeable, it could be that your moisturiser is not suitable or is not working hard enough.

Defend skin with new mosituriser and eye cream by Clinique

Chiming with the chilly season, Clinique is launching a delicious duo of skincare products just for this purpose. For the face there is the Clinique Superdefense SPF20 Daily Defense Moisturiser, £39 and for the eyes is the Superdefense SPF20 Age Defense Eye Cream, £30.  The moisturizer uses a blend of barley and white germ extract to build a barrier to protect skin from external aggresors. So apply in the morning and this moisturizer ought to be working on your skin throughout the day.

And where Batman had Robin so has Clinique’s Superdefense Daily Defense Moisturiser got the perfect partner in the shape of the new Superdefense SPF20 Age Defense Eye Cream. It’s lightweight but intense and you can see – and feel  -from first application that this is a great eye cream. It brightens the area under the eyes which can be a source of dark circles and creates what I’m dramatically referring to as a halo of light. It soaks into skin quickly but effectively tackles fine lines and wrinkles and all in all is a great product and currently on my must-have-or-I will-cry list of beauty products to use. So if you are feeling a little battle weary post Christmas, I’d recommend you buy this item.
