              Regrets that I strayed from this product and spent $165 on Prevage! By far the best I have ever used has been this product !!! Running back to it. After I stopped using it and started using PreVage my skin went down the tubes. With this product my skin was firmer, smooth and felt great. I even saw a difference in the lines around my mouth. Thanks Clinique... and thanks for making it affordable.

                          Hi! Any serum that will help to treat dark spots must be coupled with a daily sunscreen. Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum is a wonderful option, especially if you have any other aging concerns. If not, Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector plus Optimizer is another amazing option that focuses solely on dark spots. We guarantee 1 - 2 shades lighter in 4 weeks when used twice a day with a sunscreen. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                          Hi! If you have hyperpigmentation, it is likely that your freckles have become darker over time. We can not fade anything you were born with, so it will not take away your freckles, but it will fade what has become darker over time on the skin. Please be sure to partner this with an SPF each day. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                        Clinique recommends to use before moisturizer but some of your responses state to use after moisturizer. When and why does it matter if it is before or after?

                          Hi! I am sorry for the confusion. Each moisturizer is unique, which can alter the response. If the moisturizer contains an SPF, you should use it before that moisturizer. If it does not contain an SPF, you should use your moisturizer first, followed by a serum. It will not change the benefit you receive, but it does change the absorption into your skin. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                        I have so many Clinique products. At night before bed I have been using the yellow moisterizer, then repairwear laer focus night and repairwear laser focus dye cream. Do I continue to do this and then add the custom-repair serum? How about smart night custom-repair moisturizer? These two products I just received along with my gift with purchase, apparently because I spent so much money but I'm not sure when I should use them. Thank you.

                          Hi! Thanks for being such a loyal Clinique user! It sounds like you have a lot of great products! You would continue to use your Dramatically Different yellow moisturizer, but you do not need to use both Repairwear Laser Focus Night Cream and Clinique Smart Night Moisturizer. You would choose one based on your skin goals. If you are looking to lift and firm, repairwear is a nice option. If you are addressing multiple signs of aging, Clinique Smart is a nice option for you.
                          When applying your system, you would apply your serum after your Dramatically Different yellow moisturizer. Lastly, you will apply your eye cream and the anti aging moisturizer of your choice based on your needs.
                          Thank you for reaching out and have a wonderful week!

                          Hi! You honestly only need one of them. If your main skin goal is to minimize dark spots, I suggest using Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector. Clinique Smart also helps to minimize dark spots, while also addressing lines and wrinkles. You truly only need one or the other in order to see results. After you choose the serum you like most, please make sure you are using it daily with a sunscreen. Results are not guaranteed without partnering it with an spf. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful day!

                        Hi! I am 23 with very oily skin and I experience cystic acne breakouts on my chin. I would love to fade the red/purple marks from past acne scars, but am worried about adding any oil or shine to my face and/or potentially causing more breakouts. I currently use the 3 Step System for Oily Skin. Would this product be appropriate for me or is there another Clinique product I should consider? Thank you!

                          Hi! I absolutely understand and can help with acne scarring for sure! The fist tip that I have for you is to wear a lightweight sunscreen each day with your 3 step skin care system. Secondly, Clinique Smart Serum is a wonderful option. It will also help to address de aging concerns, which I am guessing at 23, you probably don't have much of right now. If you are looking for a product that will solely focus on minimizing acne scarring and improving radiance in the skin, you may want to try Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector plus Optimizer. It is the #1 selling product in the world for dark spots and acne scarring. You will see 1-2 shades lighter in 4 weeks when used twice a day and partnered with an spf daily. Thank you for your question and for your loyalty to Clinique! Have a great week!

                        I'm sceptical about getting this product. I have rosacea and some very fine lines since I'm in my 20s. I want to start age prevention. I already bought all about the eyes rich to help in that area. I have very sensitive skin but clinique has always been 100% with my sensitive skin. I just want to know if this product will be good for me long term with results and worth the price.

                          Hi! Thank you for your question, and I can understand being a bit skeptical, but I have to tell you that you will absolutely love this serum! It minimizes existing signs of aging by half-minimally. It also helps to prevent signs of aging for the future when coupled with a sunscreen. Wearing a sunscreen daily is crucial for all age prevention and your 20's is a great time to focus on this. Thank you for your interest in Clinique and have a wonderful week!

                        Hi, I've been using the 3 step dramatically difference with the smart custom repair serum.I also bought the smart repair night cream but can't use it as it breaks me out.
                        I LOVE how the smart repair has left my skin, even tone, no breakouts, and reduced wrinkles. So my problem/question is that the only thing that the smart repair serum doesn't do is tone my jaw and chin where I have sagging skin. I was wondering if I could use the sculpting serum in combination with the smart repair serum and if so what order?

                          Hi there! Yes, absolutely, the Clinique Sculptwear Serum is a wonderful choice! You can use it where needed on the skin instead of the Smart Serum. You may also be interested in trying the Clinique Sculptwear Contouring Massage Cream Mask.

                          Hi! Good question! You should use your 3 step skin care cleansing system, which includes your Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion plus. Follow with Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum, and then your Moisture Surge. The eye cream can be applied before a concealer around the eye area. It sounds like you are doing a lot of great things to take care of your skin! Thank you for using Clinique!
