“ Brand: Clinique / Type: Face Cream / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
I like the simple packaging of Clinique products and the name instantly makes you think of quality.
I bought this for my mum with some various other Clinique products for her birthday. I was really excited as it was the first time I had ever got her a big expensive present (over £150 on Clinique products, the Stop Signs Eye Cream being £22 for 15ml!) and was looking forward to her birthday more than she was!
So the big day arrives and she opens her present to this treasure trove of expensive goodies and immediately starts trying some...... we continue with the birthday.....
1 hour later.... my Mum's eyes start streaming and start going all red. 30 mins later she is in severe pain with a burning feeling and runs off to wash her face. The burning continues.....
2 hours, a phone call to NHS Direct and a trip to the out of hours doctor later it transpires she is allergic to the product.
She does not have sensitive skin or anything so was totally baffled (and miffed) that my loving, thoughtful, expensive gift was useless and ended up being given away!
