Comments about Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum:

I know that with any serum it takes awhile to see results.. I mean it's damage we did to our skin from years ago, but omg this made my skin look brighter and feel smoother in one week! I've been using this for a year now and I always get compliments on my skin. I took a picture from it before and compared it to now and what a difference! My redness is down, face bright and tighter! My smile lines and lines from my forehead are now basically non existent. Even my scarring has dramatically changed. Stick with it ladies!! The results are amazing!

            I love this product! I have very dry, sensitive skin. This serum smooths, hydrates, and reduces the redness of my face. It allows my Clinique moisturizer to sink in my skin and keeps my foundation from becoming dry and flakey!

              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.

                      I have melasma. I was wondering if I could use both the Smart Serum and the Turnaround Revitalizing Serum together for better results. I use the 3 step (combination oily) and the Smart Serum morning and night. I have tried the Dark Spot Corrector with Optimizer but my skin reacted badly to it. I use City Block 25 in the am and I exfoliate 3 days a week using Clinque's Exfoliating Scrub. What would be your suggestions? Thank you for your help.

                        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!
