Clinique came about in 1968 following an article in US Vogue which discussed whether great skin can actually be achieved through a proper skin care regime. US Vogue editor Carol Phillips, Evelyn Lauder (daughter-in-law of Estée), and dermatologist Norman Orentreich MD worked together to develop a brand that brought dermatological thinking to cosmetics.


Clinique was launched and is now one of the biggest skin care and cosmetics brands on the market, with stores in 135 different countries.


Clinique’s  3-step skin care system: cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise is their core. Products also include Clinique’s 7 Day Scrub Cream, Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion, Beyond Perfecting foundation and concealer in one and many more products.


Clinique can be found at Browns York, Beverley & Gainsborough stores.
