    Comments about Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum:

    I have never written a review before but had to about this line! I use the serum, the daytime moisturizer and the eye cream. I'm on here now buying the oil because I love this lone so much!

    I'm in my 40s and I had terrible hormonal acne (have never suffered from any breakout issues in my life). I was using another high end line for wrinkle repair but it was honestly making my breakouts worse. After a few trips to Ulta, and having several associates recommend I try Clinique, I finally did.

    My acne is gone, my face looks amazing (I've NEVER had a skin care item actually make a visible difference to my skin and this DID). And, I had kind of a turkey neck thing starting to form.... and this FIRMED IT UP! I couldn't believe it. I LOVE this line.

                Comments about Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum:

                I went into Ulta with my dark spots and premenopausal acne. The manager directed me to this product. Though leary of the price, I purchased it anyway. The manager warned it would take 60 days of continual use, per directions, to see improvement. two days is all it took to see a difference! Three weeks into it, the dark spots on my chin are barely noticeable and acne is gone! This is a must have for any 40-something!

                    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!

                    Hi! I am sorry to hear that. Thank you for reaching out. You should feel an improvement in texture of the skin in the first week. In terms of de-aging, it will take about 12 weeks to see improvement. It should be used with a sunscreen twice a day. Please let me know if I can help in any other way, and have a great week.

                    A:

                    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!
