So apart from the fact that you can really home in on your specific skincare needs with this system, it’s also fun and looks cool too! Once you have chosen the base Clinique moisturiser best suited to you, you simply slot in the active cartridge concentrate based on your primary skin concern.
Clinique iD Hydrating Bases
You have a choice of three different hydrating bases from the Clinique products range. Depending on your skin type and texture preferences you can choose between the following formulations from the Dramatically Different Clinique skincare family:
- Hydrating Jelly – new, light and refreshing water-weight texture is suitable for all skin types
- Moisturizing Lotion+ – silky moisturiser great for very dry to dry-combination skin types
- Oil-Free Gel – light, lotion-gel texture good for combination-oily to very oily skins types
Clinique iD Active Cartridge Concentrates
There are five cartridges to pick from and each one contains high levels of pure, concentrated active ingredients that target a specific concern and your skin id:
- Irritation (green) – calms, comforts with probiotics and algae
- Pores & Uneven Texture (blue) – retexturizes, illuminates with AHAs
- Uneven Skin Tone (white) – evens tone, brightens with Japanese Angelica Root Extract & Liquorice Root Extract
- Fatigue (orange) – energises, revives glow with Taurine, Caffeine, & Mimosa Bark Extract
- Lines & Wrinkles (purple) – smooths lines, re-plumps with Whey protein & peptides
Clinique iD – How To Use It
It’s a really simple system to use. You choose your base, then you choose the cartridge that addresses your primary concern, and then simply insert your cartridge into the hydration base to create your own custom-blend hydration system.
I absolutely love the packaging because it looks cool and it’s clever. You slot in the cartridge of active serum which is them drawn through the hydrating base to create your custom skincare blend as you pump it out. Genius!
It delivers the precise proportions and every pump contains 90% hydration base with 10% of the active cartridge concentrate, so you’re hydrating and treating at the same time.
My Skin ID Combinations
I love the Jelly for the day under makeup with the Orange cartridge for glow. The lotion with Purple for anti-ageing is great for night. So, you could actually have different variants if you wanted to address a couple of your main concerns and like to mix things up a bit. Also, my partner really likes the Clinique men range but also find the Jelly with green cartridge perfect after shaving.
You can find the complete Clinique iD offering HERE now. It’s really affordable in my opinion. The base and cartridge totals £36 and it’s a big bottle that will last for ages. Please let me know if you have any questions.
