    USE IT or LOSE IT: CLINIQUE EVEN BETTER ESSENCE LOTION Review

    Product Update

    date: 1 September 2018

    I just find out that Clinique decided to stop this product and changes into another product with similar ingredients. I have still no ideas the reason why they wanted to change but my assumption is the brand want to stay relevant in beauty community ever since there are lots of indie brands that overflowing and catching up to high-end brands.

    It’s common for Clinique to every now and then doing this type of marketing things, remember Bronze Goddess heat wave highlighter, after became limited edition, Clinique decided to sell the highlighter in different packaging and pattern printing. Of course, people who are brand crave will buy so but nowadays, people tend to stick to their gut and without being invincible just eating up all the marketing strategy that brands are doing. Another product replacement is Clinique Moisture Surge to Clinique 72 hour auto replenishing hydrator, I haven’t yet use the product but planning too since I love moisture surge but they no longer available therefore I was planning to just give 72 hour hydrator a tryout.

    Imo, Clinique really need to get into a meeting with all the department and implement new strategy or else, they will lose up to the game. People can spot it easily. I and my team decided to email Clinique and asked them, the reason they want to reinvent the product. Let’s see how they gonna say about it and will update on this article, Should you wanna know the reason, feel free to subscribe to the newsletter.

    This is the product that replaces the even better essence

    Even Better Essence Lotion for Very Dry to Dry Combination is almost similar to Clinique’s Essence Lotion for Combination Oily to Oily, with a few added moisturizing ingredients to better suit those with normal to dry skin. All version of ‘Even Better Essence’ is suited to any type of skin. ‘Even Better Essence is suited for you who have acne prone skin. This is better option for you who have very dry skin to combination. According to Beautypedia, this facial essence is far better than any Clinique Clarifying lotion due to problematic ingredients that contained in those lotions.

    The ‘Even Better Essence’ is formulated with fragrance and parabens free, on alcohol that will make skin irritation and with a good blend of antioxidant plant and fruit sources such as watermelon, apple, cucumber and a few algae-derived extracts, to name a few that help to defend  our skin against free-radical damage. Clinique made an awesome invention of mixing lightweight emollients from synthetic and natural sources, which is a natural and synthetic ingredients can work together to create a better skincare that serve well to our skin.

    How to use: after cleansing and clarifying and before serums or moisturizing, pour a few drops into your hand and pat into skin.

    Possibilities of acne/allergic or any trouble for the ingredients? None.

    How is the result? Soft and bouncier looking skin the next morning.

    How many days it takes to see the results? 3 days of usage .I use twice a days, and use it around 6 times.

    The bottle is made of semi glass that is blur, it’s wrapped in white and silver color. Even better essence is white transparent. Product liquid can be seen in cover page.


    VERDICT

    Ratings: 5 out of 5

    Pros:

    Suitable for all skin types

    Support to hydrate very dry skin

    Lightweight and friendly formula

    With antioxidants, the skin can feel a little bit relaxed

    Fragrance, alcohol and paraben free

    I read on Beautypedia about this product being not suitable for Asian skin. I think the opposite. I love using essence, and this essence has been a great help to my dry skin.

    Will I recommend the product? Yes.

    Will I repurchased the product? Yes.
