One of the top companies which provide products beneficial for the skin is Clinique. The aim was to provide its customers with original products which helped them in caring for their skin. The range of products is the best gift you could give your skin.
The products have proven to give results, but they are expensive. Everyone can’t afford to buy Clinique products, and the average purchases are 2-3 throughout the whole year. For this reason, in every quarter of the year, Clinique organizes a Bonus Time. During this time duration, users can buy Clinique products at discounted prices and also receive Clinique Bonus gifts for absolutely free.
Clinique Bonus Time 2012 has ended with a blast. With the start of a new year, Clinique Bonus Time 2013 is here in full swing. 2012’s Bonus Time has been a huge success in terms of sales and people have highly appreciated the products offered this year. Like always, people are expecting the company to introduce some new and exciting products next year, including discounted prices and quarterly free gifts as every year.
Are you new?
For those who are unfamiliar with the company and want to know a brief history, the company was launched in 1968 and is a sub group of Estée Lauder Corporation. The idea came to the mind of Estée Lauder’s daughter-in-law, Evelyn Lauder. Her source of inspiration was an article published in American Vogue Magazine in 1967. The focus of the article was the importance of skin care for a good and healthy skin. It was written by the Carol Phillips, then beauty editor at Vogue, and Dr. Norman Orentreich.
Evelyn, Carol and Dr. Norman joined their heads together and thought of the products and how they could be made to benefit the skin. Help was also taken from dermatologists and chemists. Together they were able to give the world a new range of beauty products specially made for skin care. The products were also customized according to the needs of women each having a different skin type.
3- Step Skin Care System
Clinique introduced a skin care method which they called as the 3- step skin care system. The three steps included, cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing. These 3 steps joined to complete the process of skin care. Each next step is important to be followed after its predecessor. The first step is done to clear the skin of the dirt which enters the skin pores throughout the day. The upper layer of the skin becomes dead due to exposure to heat and dust and gives a dull look to the face. Therefore, it’s important to remove it. This is done through exfoliation. Moisturizing of skin is the last step in this method and it helps protect the skin from further damage by hydrating and keep it soft. If you follow these three steps regularly, then you will definitely experience a different skin in a few days’ time.
The product range of Clinique includes items for skin care, sun protection, eye, lip, hand and body care and fragrances. A very popular product is the anti-aging cream that has been introduced a few years back. This product has become highly popular as people are becoming more aware and at the same time more concerned about their skin.
Clinique Bonus Time
Bonus Time of Clinique is the much awaited sale season throughout the year. People anxiously wait for this sale season. The major benefit given to the customers during this season are the Clinique Bonus gifts.
