    Comments about Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum:

    I did not expect much! I was not only wrong but I'm happy to be wrong. The texture is awesome & I love the peach hue. This really does attack multiple issues. In one week - brightness, even tone, cleared pores!, reduction in lines with an overall look of vibrancy. Apply after moisturizer and enjoy... it contains salicylic acid which is great!!! This combats inflammation, unclogs pores and helps clear away dead skin. I saw someone say "I don't want salicylic acid in my serum" it's important to understand how important this ingredient is and that it is not just for acne solutions at all. Salicylic comes from the white willow bark in nature but can now be made in the lab. Aspirin was originally from the white willow bark, therefore it's a wonder ingredient & less aggravating than other acids 4 face. Think about it, aspirin is anti inflammatory and salicylic literally unglues gunk on the surface of skin and in the pores while calm redness. Anyway, this is packed with great ingredients and wears well under makeup. My skin is finicky so I had to cut back to once per day application as it's amazing ingredients caused a bit of irritation but it did clear up my skin and refine it. it Does add a touch of moisture too. Impressed that it cleared my face & lit it up. I cleanse, exfoliate with Tatcha enzyme rice and then their Essence, then Clinique moisture surge super concentrate gel, smart repair night moisturizer as needed and then the Smart Serum. It's one of the best out there that is a full on multiplayer for yor skin! Warning: resist over application. Less is more and a 1oz will last longer than a month especially if just using on face. Bottom line- it is packed with great stuff 4 skin. Hope it works 4 all of u too.

                            Hi! All products produced by Clinique have undergone extensive testing to ensure their safety and efficacy. Nevertheless, individual medical conditions present unique circumstances that may warrant product review with a physician. Pregnancy and breastfeeding create many physiological changes, and therefore women should consult their doctors prior to using cosmetic products during this period. Thank you for your question and have a great week.

                        • Q:

                          I use the (1)Clarifying Lotion 1.0, (2)Smart Treatment Oil, then (3)Redness Solutions Daily Relief Cream. I was using the Turnaround Revitalizing Lotion instead of the clarifying lotion, but when I bought the clarifying lotion I started using that before the revitalizing lotion (1.5). I felt like it's not good for my skin to do 2 exfoliating lotions so I am still doing my (1)clarifying lotion but I made switched step 1.5 to Smart Custom-Repair Serum instead. I would like to know if the the combinations are ok and if the serum was the right replacement.
                          I'm experiencing an affect where the oil is making the serum bead up on my skin and wondering if I made the wrong choice. maybe I need to start mixing the oil with my moisturizer? I am enticed by all the the added vitamins or antioxidants or whatever is in the turnaround so the new serum seemed like an obvious switch to me. Please Help!

                            Great question. Adding Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum will help with uneven skin tone and loss of firmness. Choose Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel for your combination skin that is prone to breakout. Apply Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel first, Clinique Acne Solutions Acne + Line Correcting Serum, Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum, and Clinique Sculptwear Serum. Lastly, apply Repairwear Uplifting Firming Cream. Thanks for your question and we can't wait to hear your results!

                          Can this be used in conjunction with Acne Line Correcting Serum, or better by itself? Also, I alternate between the 3 step and acne cleaner, toner and moisturizers, along with the Emergency Gel lotion and spot treatments. What order should the products be applied?
