FIRST IMPRESSION: Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh skin care line

I have tried and tested the Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh skin care line. More specifically the toner, the essence and the serum. Here’s my review.

Cliniccare is a Swedish professional salon brand which are developing their skin care products in Korea. Cliniccare’s skin care is based on fine molecular hyaluronic acid, which is one of the basic components of their products. Smaller molecules in the active ingredients means that the skin can absorb these ingredients even better. All Cliniccare products are manufactured in Korea and contain at least 40% active ingredients or more. These products are targeting wrinkles and fine lines as well as slowing down signs of aging. Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh skin care line is based on only 3 products that I’m going to review today: the toner, the essence and the serum. There is no cream.

Cliniccare currently has no oil-based cleanser nor a regular face cream which I really miss. However, these products work well together if you want somewhat lighter skin care, especially for the summer. The above products also include a foam cleanser and a tinted day cream from Cliniccare. But today I’m reviewing the entire Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh skin care line which includes the toner, the essence and the serum (image below). Cliniccare is a Swedish salon brand using an advanced formula as these products are developed in Korea. My expectations for these products were pretty high. The key ingredients in all of these products are fine molecular hyaluronic acid and peptides.

The toner comes in a handy plastic bottle with a pump. I usually use 2 pumps of product on my dry skin. The toner is very fluid almost like water. The product contains hyaluronic acid, portulaca extract, amino acid betaine and peptides. Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh Toner is deeply hydrating the skin without irritating and it’s also activating the cells. Because this toner is caring, the product is patted into the skin using your hands. This toner feels refreshing and hydrating and has a wonderful skin care scent. No sticky feeling at all, but more of a wet and moist feel. The toner is quickly absorbed into the skin, which immediately feels hydrated and smooth. Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh Toner is one of my favorite products from the Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh line. I like this product because it feels refreshing and caring, and I just love the amazing scent.

The essence also comes in a handy plastic bottle with a pump. Cliniccare EFG Extra Refresh Essence is almost like a thicker version of the toner, with the same lovely scent. The essence includes ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides, portulaca extract and chamomile. The essence is activating the cells and adding long-lasting moisture. Nice skin care scent and the texture is like a translucent, light flowing gel. I usually take 2 pumps of the essence for maximum hydration. Slightly sticky feeling when patting in the essence on the skin. The skin feels hydrated, moisturized, soft and supple after application.

Cliniccare EFG Extra Refresh Serum comes in the same handy pump bottle as the essence. The serum is white and looks like a light cream or lotion. Cliniccare EFG Extra Refreshing Serum is rich in antioxidants, deeply hydrating and strengthening and restoring the skin. Cliniccare EFG Extra Refresh Serum contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides and the betaine amino acid. The serum also contains Squalane, a substance that is naturally found in our skin cells and is part of the lipid barrier. I usually use 2 pumps of the serum as well because I have dry skin. Somewhat sticky feeling, but not too bad. The serum melts into the skin and is nicely absorbed. The skin feels moisturized, soft and smooth after application. About the same lovely skin care scent as the essence

Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh Skin Care Line

Overall, I like the Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh skin care line. These products are fresh and come in handy hygienic pump bottles that are easy to use without effort. Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh skin care line is all about good quality skin care in my opinion. Plus for the lovely scent, especially the toner. Plus for the formula which contains fine molecular hyaluronic acid. Plus because these products are fresh, thin and light but they still make a difference to the skin which is immediately hydrated, soft and moisturized.

Unfortunately, the Cliniccare EGF line didn’t work for my sister with young acne prone combination skin. She almost instantly got break outs on her forehead, along the jaw line and under her nose. Both small pimples and more inflamed acne inside the skin. She has sensitive skin and easily gets break outs if products doesn’t work with her skin. She did try the Cliniccare EGF line for a full week, but then she wanted to quit as the break outs continued. Completely understandable.

On the other hand, a friend of mine with normal mature skin also tried the Cliniccare EFG line. And she liked these products a lot and she used all of them on a daily basis until the bottles were empty. She describes the scent as nice, fresh and easy-going. She liked how nicely the cleanser was foaming and that the toner felt refreshing. She thought the essence felt sticky on the skin but was still pleased with the results. Overall, she was really happy with the products and had nothing to complain about. She gives Cliniccare EFG Extra Refresh skin care line a generous 5/5 in ratings.

Personally, however, I feel that these 3 products alone doesn’t really give me that deep hydration that my dry skin needs. I therefore preferably use 2 pumps of all of these products for maximum hydration. I also miss a complementary face cream, especially at night. Big minus as the prices are much higher than many other Korean skin care brands. This is more of a Swedish pricing range because this brand is in fact Swedish. Cliniccare’s skin care products cost between 60-90 € / pc and sheet masks cost as much as 19 € / pc. Unfortunately, I do not think that this line keeps as high quality as Korean high-end brands in the same price range, for example Sulwhasoo, Hera or Iope. I would also expect more luxurious packaging for that price range. However, this is a really nice and fresh skin care line in my opinion, especially if you are looking for a Swedish brand that you can buy at the salon.

I like the Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh skin care line, but the prices are far too expensive for my taste. This is mainly a salon brand within a higher price range.

I would mainly recommend Cliniccare EGF Extra Refresh skin care line to mature skin with wrinkles and lines, and for those who want to prevent signs of aging. These products are suitable for normal skin and combination skin where these 3 products are just enough. However, this is not for sensitive skin types as this line might cause break outs. The toner and the essence is also suitable for oily skin I think as they are light and nicely absorbed by the skin. If you add a face cream or sleeping mask then this line would work for dry skin types as well. This is a skin care line with lightweight refreshing products and good absorption, and at the same time the products feel caring and makes a difference to the skin. Good but a little bit too expensive for my taste!
