Clinique Super Rescue Antioxidant Moisturizer

So Paula Begoun reports that this moisturizer really does have a high amount of antioxidants in it, and she also says that the more moisturizing the formulation of this product, the more antioxidants. Regardless, I stuck to the one for combination skin, since that’s what I need. I love this moisturizer. It doesn’t smell amazing […]
