Most Helpful Positive Review One of the best products I have ever used!!
I am 46 years old and I have been taking good care of my skin since I was in my early 20s so I consider myself a well informed consumer. This is one of the BEST products I have ever used, period. I have read bad reviews based on the fact that some people find it difficult to use. My lovely Clinique counter lady told me: the Violet cream for Volume! (V-V). The other one for tightening. I use the violet cream on my cheeks (hello marionette lines), and the other one for my neck-chin and forehead. In just a few days I have been able to tell a HUGE difference, something I have never experienced. I was looking for a product that specifically targeted loss of volume without crazy active ingredients since I have terribly sensitive skin. I use my vitamin C serum (not from Clinique) and then I apply the MD cream with one pump of Hyaluronic acid serum (not from Clinique). This is the ONLY cream that's properly hydrated my skin (not even Drunk Elephant's Lala Retro achieved this). Please give it a good try.... Absolutely no irritation, my skin looks even (the volumizing cream also has ingredients that treats pore size and I can also tell), and my skin's just loving it. Just try it and you won't regret it, trust me!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Made me break out!!
I have very sensitive skin in regards to acne. I have been going through this since I was 13 and am now 42. I have seen dermatologists regularly throughout that entire time as well. A few years ago I took Accutane and FINALLY got the clear skin I worked so hard for all these years only to have it ruined by THIS product. I am so upset about this because I specifically used the chat to ask what firming wrinkle cream they had that was oil free and explained my situation. The lady who answered my inquiry assured me this product was oil free even though it did not say so on the website. Well clearly it is not, because the one constant in all my years of dealing with acne is to never put anything on my face that doesn't SAY "oil free" and now I know why. I trusted Clinique because they told me it wouldn't cause me a problem. I feel like such a sucker. BUYERS BEWARE of THIS PRODUCT. It is NOT oil free and MAY cause breakouts.

Booboo from wa
I have developed small lines around my mouth. This rich cream helps to reduce these lines and makes them less visable.
Very good product
DJ/SW MI from Michigan
I've used this product, along with the targeted eye cream for a long time. While the eye cream is scent free, the face cream has somewhat of a mocha/ molasses scent. It's not strong or offensive, but noticeable. The product itself is very good, and does actually help with fine lines. I have sensitive skin and had no reaction. I'll definitely continue using both products.
Results after 1 day
PL2012 from Otsego, MN
I got a sample of this and immediately noticed a difference in my skin feeling more plumped up and firm. I want to buy the full size!
I love this item for the neck
Weezie from UT
it's thick and very nurishing for the neck
Definite lifting action
Sally from Guin, AL
This duo cream has definitely made a difference in the sagging I am experiencing as a result of aging. One of the beauty experts recommended it for my concerns with sagging areas. Only after a few days of using it as she instructed I can see a difference in my nasolabial folds and jowls. I'm also seeing a tightening in the neck area. I highly recommend this product for anyone else with these concerns!
Amazing paste/cream…terrible scent
Lam from St. Louis, MO
My dry, aging (59 yo) skin adores this paste/cream. It is truly transformative. However, the smell…oh, the awful, molasses-like scent almost caused me to simply throw the entire jar away after just two uses but the product is simply too great. Clinique, PLEASE fix the scent - I thought it was "fragrance free"!
Wish I could buy products separately!
J from Alaska
I received this as a freebie, and it came in two separate containers. I love the dark purple, but don't really love the light purple. I don't hate it; I just don't see it makes as big of a difference as the dark purple. I got online to order the dark purple, and I can't get it by itself; it comes in a jar with both. So I would be paying a LOT of money for something I don't really want. I really wish Clinique would consider selling them separately.
I LOVE THIS CREAM!
CATHY from or
I've been using this cream for several years now and it is still a favourite!
Makes my skin "come alive"
Michele M from New Jersey
This is honestly the best product for aging, sensitive skin. It tightens and firms, my skin looks smooth. When I get up the next morning and wash my face, it still has such a smooth feel and I swear it makes me look younger (I'm 63).
Makes me look younger!
Sirius9102 from New Mexico
After using this product (Revolumize) for about a month, I was told that I looked so much younger. It really does minimize, if not totally erase wrinkles and lines. I couldn't be happier.
Like a paste
J from New York, NY
This cream is like a paste; I am not sure what you'd use it for, since it's way too heavy for day and too non-absorbent (as in, gets all over your pillow, etc.) for night.
Nermin from Egypt
My skin felt tight and healthy after using it. I think I will buy it again.
Not the best product for me
JJFP from Texas
I received this product as part of the "free" with purchase items. I wanted to like it, as I thoroughly enjoy Clinique overall. However, this particular cream had a less desirable scent than I prefer. I used it several times on my face and the cream itself was fine. I think the scent is what was off-putting for me. I see another person liked the scent so perhaps it was just me. It was a small 1/2 ounce container so I ended up using it as a foot cream so as not to just discard it.
Thick and smooth
ET from Co
I have been using this on my heavy forehead lines and it's seems to have smoothed them some but definitely seeing a change in the smaller lines. Have been using for about 6 weeks.
Amy from DE
I love this cream very much, it's suitable for dry skin. It smells good and works well. I use it daily. I'll continue to purchase this item.
Just 4 days
Katy Bug from El Paso, TX
I've only been using this product for 4 days and I already see results. My skin seems more full and tight. I'm going to turn 40 this year and these results are just the pick me up I needed.
This stuff is AHHHHMAZING
53 and in denial ;) from Eastern WA
I needed something that would moisturize but not break out my face. As soon as I opened the jar and saw how thick it was I was instantly nervous but tried it anyways. I have gotten sooooo many compliments on how good my face looks. And my makeup looks 10x better also!!! This is a keeper for sure!!
P.S.Note that I am applying Origins Mega Mushroom Relief & Resilience and L'Octaine Immortelle Reset prior to applying the Smart Clinical. This trio seems to be working wonders!!!
Did nothing for me
CliniqueUser123 from Los Angeles, CA
Unfortunately, I did not see any change to my skin (both visual and feel) after using this product. I really wanted to like this, but for me, other products suited better. I might just not have the right skin for it.
LALA from MIAMI
I just bought this product. I opened the jar and saw 2 types of creams. No explanation on how to use it. I had to read every review to find an answer. This is not the first product I buy from Clinique that has no instructions on how to to use them. Clinique should include the instructions on each product. I don't feel like getting more products and start a research.
Thuy from OR
I love it a lot. The different result I can see after 14 days.

Incredible Night Cream!
Clau 24 from California
I've been using this cream for 4 months and I can't believe how good this cream is! My skin is super soft, all little fine wrinkles disappear and it totally plumps your skin. I tried many other Clinique night creams but this is a winner, a little expensive but you need a little amount so it last for a long time.
Awesome cream, thank you Clinique!
Skip fillers, get this
CC from Florida
28 y/o with nasolabial folds that were made more pronounced after using a strong retinol and not adequately moisturizing. I had received a sample and bought the full jar. I use it on targeted areas like those mentioned folds and eventually worked my way to my cheeks to replace loss of collagen associated with aging. This product is literally AMAZING. Did not make me break out and literally filled in the lines in a week. I will always choose great skin care before using injections. I highly encourage using this product to take care of your skin issues with loss of volume or any creases. I typically use Prevage products for maintaining firmness, this is now my go-to for plumpness.
Have no idea how and when to use this product
Marie from Texas
This came as a huge surprise. I opened the jar and there were two compartments only half full. There was no explanation as how and when to use it. Came back to the webpage to read more and still did not understand how and when to use it. I initially bought is to replace the Clinique Smart™ Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Custom-Repair Moisturizer because I couldn't find the skin type version I was looking for. I guess I made a mistake choosing this one. I have been using Clinique for a long time and I like their products but I honestly am very disappointing of this one and the lack of reasonable information about how is better used. I also spent time to read the company's responses to the other reviewers to see if I can get any information on how to use it. However, I found none; I only found rudimentary, lacking thought and information answers.
