It’s not very easy to put side by side two of the most loved brands in the world, both with faithful customers who sometimes even combine the brands, in order to get the best results for them.

Despite the name, Clinique is actually an American brand, born in the 70s and nowadays is a subsidiary of Estee Lauder Companies.

Lancôme is in fact a French brand who appeared around 1930 and has become part of L’Oreal Luxury Products few years ago.

Even though this doesn’t reflect in any way in the quality of their products, it seems that Clinique is BBB (Better Business Bureau) accredited, whereas Lancôme isn’t. As in matter of fact, as far as it concerns BBB, Lancôme has received some complaints from its customers and the solutions were delayed.

Clinique is an American manufacturer that creates products for skincare, cosmetics, toiletries and fragrances. The French manufacturer offers products for skin care, make up and perfumes just as well.

Both of these two brands are quite present on social media area and they have similar numbers when it comes to Likes or followers.

Which is better: Clinique or Lancôme?

This is a tricky question as both brands offer a good range of products for skincare, fragrances and make up.

Clinique’s products last long (a little goes a long way) and the skin care products are 100% fragrance free- this is great if you only want to feel your favorite perfume.

It seems though that Lancôme gives better products for the oily skin and its ultimate mascara beats any competitor’s product.

When it comes to prices, it’s a little more obvious that Lancôme is higher priced than Clinique.

Final word? Clinique gives good quality, fragrance free skin care products and Lancôme gives great fragrances and make up products. You decide which is more important to you.
