It’s back to school this week for all the kids and with summer just around the corner, we are feeling it’s time to give our skincare routines and make-up bags a bit of a spring clean. No better place to get advice than in the impressive Beauty Department at Menarys in Bangor. We headed to the Clinique counter to find out what’s new in their skincare range. Not only have Clinique in Menarys got a fabulous Free Gift Offer on at the moment but they are also offering mini You-Time services for customers buying 2 or more products until the end of the month (T&C’s apply).

Good news too for our Facebook fans, whilst we were catching up on the new launches, Clinique consultant, Andrea offered to give Main Street, My Street Facebook fans the chance to win some of their latest new products, plus a one-to-one consultation complete with glass of fizz and some sweet treats! Get over to our Facebook page to enter today!

So what’s new in Clinique and included in the fabulous prize?

It’s all about the Vitamin C!

There’s nothing nicer than a glass of proper fresh pressed orange juice in the morning! We all know that keeping our Vitamin C levels up is important for our health and wellbeing…but did you know how effective a boost of Vitamin C can be for your skin? Clinique’s new “Fresh Pressed” range is powered by Vitamin C and promises to jump-start your day with fresh Vitamin C for purified, brighter, re-texturized skin. The range includes a cleanser that comes in daily doses of fine powder that you mix with a small amount of water to create a lovely lather, leave on your skin for one minute and then rinse. Following cleansing, there’s a Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with Vitamin C 10% which you simply mix with your usual moisturiser to create a super-potent booster to reinvigorate your anti-aging skincare routine. Andrea is highly recommending the Clinique Smart SPF Custom–repair moisturiser alongside the Vitamin C booster so this week’s prize package contains a 15ml pot of the moisturiser, a 7 day supply of the booster and a month supply of the Fresh Pressed Renewing powder Cleanser with Pure Vitamin C.

Eye Spy!

Another relatively new product that we love in Clinique is the Pep-start Eye Cream. To achieve a wide awake look in a few seconds simply apply Pep-start direct to the eye with applicator or mix with illuminating concealer for a fresh and flawless look!

Last Up, Clean Up!

When the day is done and you are headed for bed, there’s only one last thing to make sure you add to your daily routine and that is a great cleanser, especially one with a cleansing cloth that gives a really good clean! Clinique’s “Take the Day Off’ cleansing balm transforms from a solid balm into a fluid oil that gently clears the skin of the all the residues of the day. There’s a whole 125 ml of this wonder tub in our prize and a pack of 2 cleansing cloths.

We came away from our mini session with Andrea feeling refreshed, positive and armed with some great new products to try for fresher, younger, healthier looking skin! Why not call in this week and take advantage of the Clinique You-Time offer of a free gift and services with your purchase of 2 or more products.
