When i say i absolutely love Hyaluronic Acid, its not an exaggeration its one of those ingredients that give you instant results and for someone who tend to suffer from dehydrated skin its an absolute godsend!
What is it?
I was sent this quite a while back but I had already been using the Hydrating Jelly so I wanted to use that up before I started using a new bottle of the Clinique iD Active Cartridge System. The Clinique iD Active Cartridge System is basically a customised moisturiser, its an active cartridge that is placed into one of three moisturisers (Hydrating Jelly, Moisturizing Lotion+ and Oil-Control Gel) As you can tell I choice the Hydrating Jelly as it works best for my oily-combination skin as I don’t want anything too heavy on my skin.
What does it do?
The idea is to impart actives into the skin whilst using a moisturiser. There are 5 concentrate cartridges: Lines and Wrinkles, Pores & Uneven Texture, Fatigue, Irritation and Uneven Skin Tone. You would choose one of these cartridges to put into one of the 3 moisturisers.
I think its a smart idea because there are 15 different combinations you could have between the 3 different moisturisers. I am a really big fan of customised skincare as a one type fix isn’t going to work for everyone.
I got the Lines and Wrinkles version which is a concentrated dose of Whey Protein which is supposed to help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, rehydrates and plumps the skin according to Clinique.
How do you use it?
Once you have bought both parts all you have to do is place the cartridge into the moisturiser of your choice, give it a few pumps and apply as you would a normal moisturiser.
Whats in it?
While i think this is a great idea and could be a great thing for people just getting into skincare, dont get me wrong i love the Hydrating Jelly im just now sure if i noticed much of a difference from using the purple cartridge. I think if I had used one of the more active ones like Uneven skin tone (White) or Pores and uneven texture (Orange) i might have seen a bigger difference.
