TODAY: FREE Shipping from Clinique

Allergy tested. 100% fragrance free. That’s my kind of cosmetic & skin care! A fabulous email just arrived in my inbox… TODAY ONLY, Clinique is offering FREE SHIPPING on any order – no minimum purchase! Just use code DELIGHT at checkout. Remember, they have skin care lines not only for women, but for men and teens too!

This time of year it is so easy to forget that your skin still needs sun protection — but it does. Winter sun still causes skin damage, so be sure to continue to use sunscreen. Their City Block Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector (in SPF 25 or 40) goes on nicely under make-up, or on its own. You’ll thank me in 20 years. 🙂
