Clicks new and improved Skincare Collection

A while back, I was sent a few products from Clicks new and improved Skincare Collection range.

It’s now available in four variants – Rooibos and Antioxidants (for normal/combo skin), Tea Tree and Cucumber (for oily skin like moi), Vitamin E and Orchid (for dry sensitive skin) and White Tea and Q10 (for those wanting skincare with anti-aging properties).



Being an oily-skinned girl, I appreciated the Tea Tree and Cucumber collection the most. (I was given the face wash and mask). I like that the face wash takes off both foundation and eye make-up with ease, but didn’t leave my skin feeling dry or tight like many other cleansers aimed at treating the oilies. (Ironically, if you end up over-drying your skin, it creates even more oil to compensate for the lack of moisture.)

See how the mask is almost gone? I really got stuck in there...

The mask, however, is awesome. It’s choc full of kaolin to help draw out impurities. After using it, you can genuinely feel a difference in your skin.

I wasn’t blown away by the facial scrubs. I found they didn¹t have enough ‘scrubbies’ in them to make a visible difference to your skin. Still, I’ll keep them and use them as facial washes. The White Tea and Q10 variant is particularly nice and creamy-feeling.



As for the face creams, I only gave the Rooibos and White Tea variants a bash as I didn’t receive the moisturiser from the Tea Tree line and thought Orchid, which is geared at drier peeps, wouldn’t suit my skin type.

Both the day and night versions of the Rooibos and White Tea variants have a nice, creamy texture. So much so that I worried they’d be too rich for my skin. I needn’t have, however, as they absorb in a flash (even the night creams) and make a good base for foundation. I also liked that the day creams contain an SPF of 15. This is a big plus over Clicks’ new mySKIN range, which doesn’t.


Now, in regards to the effectiveness of the anti-aging range… White Tea and Q10 are both great antioxidants. Q10 is also much like vitamin C in that it’s also able to reduce the effects of UV damage and help stimulate collagen to help keep your skin looking nice and firm. Still, I think you might want to supplement this with a dash of retinol in the evening so as to combat surface wrinklies too. 



Next time you’re in store, go take a look.
The prices are fab and range from just R29,99 to R79,99.


Love, love
