Merry Clinique

Christmas is round the corner and Clinique is all ready for it. In fact, I got invited to their Christmas party at the gorgeous Estee Lauder office quite awhile ago but didn’t have time in my crazy work schedule to share the photos with you till now. It’s still not too late to head out for some Christmas shopping especially since Clinique has made it so easy for you to shop for gifts this year.

The party was in full Christmas mode with gorgeous balloons, Clinique Christmas tree and even elves on hand to guide us to the venue!

The beautiful ladies behind Clinique were wonderful hosts and they shared with us how Clinique has created a full range of gift sets in ready to give boxes for every climate you can think of this christmas.

 Whether the person on your gift list is experiencing a cool white winter christmas, a tropical beach christmas or spending it at home in Singapore with family and friends, there is something you can get at Clinique for them

Divided into 4 climate types, there are a plethora of choices in pre-packed gift sets that looks good, feels good and are good for your love ones (or even yourself!).

The first climate type is the Wet Winter Climate. It’s in places like the costal zones bordering the Mediterranean Sea, the Chilean Coast, Cape Town or United Kingdom where you get temperatures of 8C to 15C  with frequent dozes of rainfall.

For wet winter climate, it’s best to pick non-drying cleansing formulas to keep the skin fresh.
