    Just one squirt will cover your entire face. Product is very lightweight yet so soothing to your face. Makes my face baby bottoms soft!! Only 1 oz but I can tell it will last several months.

      Comments about Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Serum:

      I bought this product just to try it out. I really wanted the turn around night cream but my luck with finding that cream has been very minimal. So I figure this is the next item to it, why not give it a try. I like the product, it makes my face feel very smooth, but I think it would be more useful for a person who wears makeup. I think it will be excellent to use prior to applying foundation and primers; to assist with the application. I use this as a part of my nighttime regimen. So what I do is I wash my face and make sure that is clean & dry. Next I apply my toner and once that dry then I apply the serum and lastly I apply a night cream. One bonus about this product is whatever you put on top of it and makes it go on a lot more smoothly. The only two cons about this product is that it's expensive and I really do not notice too much of a difference in my skin. My skin does seem a little bit more glowy and brighter but I am not sure if it's due to this product or do to the other new products I have introduced in my skin care regimen. If you're looking for hydration this is not it. So the major question is will I purchase this product again? Absolutely, however I would like to give other serums a try and if those do not work out for me I always know where to return to.

            Comments about Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Serum:

            I have struggled with hormonal acne since I was 12 and on top of that, I also have super sensitive skin (I get red rashes easily, my skin doesn't like fragrance etc). No matter how many products I've tried (I have tried *a lot* both drugstore and more expensive ones) I always return to Clinique's products. Most of my breakouts are on my jawline, and I had some congested areas/bumpiness on my cheeks. I wanted to try a new approach to my mild acne and hyperpigmentation-- to use a product that doesn't necessarily target acne specifically (because those can often be harsh and irritating, which actually causes acne as a response to inflammation!). So, enter this serum. I'm in my early 20s so serums didn't seem like they were for me...but actually, it's perfect for someone like me w combo skin. It delivers the ingredients I need to my skin without the heavy emollients of a night cream. I pair with my Dramatically Different Gel (which is my life saving moisturizer) every night and when I wake up, my skin looks so refreshed, feels super smooth, and I can see is definitely improving. I also really like this product because it does not have Retinol in it (which causes me irritation and I just don't like the idea of). Get this get this get this!!

                Comments about Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Serum:

                I have combination skin and was suddenly struck with extremely dry, flaky and blotchy skin in some areas along with my typical active breakouts and some acne scarring. This was recommended to me (along with an intensive moisturizer) and I could not believe how quickly my skin truly "turned around". Within days the flakiness stopped, the redness stopped a few days after that, somehow my active breakouts also stopped and my scarring started to fade about 3 weeks after my initial start. I have no idea how all of this is happening but I really feel like the turn around serum should take the bulk of the credit!

                        Hello. Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Serum brightens skin tone and is a comparable replacement for your Clinique Even Better Essence Lotion. All Clinique products undergo rigorous product safety testing prior to manufacture. However, as we are only familiar with our brand's products, we are unable to recommend if the Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Serum would be suitable for use in conjunction with your product.

                        Should you have any other concerns, we recommend that you review and discuss the ingredient listing with your physician who is in the best position to evaluate all factors involved. Thanks for your question and have a great week!

                    • Q:

                      Hi! I am debating between buying this serum and the pore correcting serum, I have combination skin that can be prone to acne and I currently use the 3-step system + the moisture surge gel and I would like to incorporate a new serum into my skincare routine. I previously used the Smart Custom-Repair serum and it did not help my skin much, so I want something new. My main skin concerns are large pores, dullness, and texture from acne scars. I am also looking for added hydration from a serum if possible. Please let me know which product would be ideal for me! Thank you!

                      Hi! I'm choosing between this product and the Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum. I have acne prone and combination to oily skin, so I'd want something that could help prevent acne, reduce redness/spots, and at the same time, just help keep the oil at bay. Which one from the two would you prefer, or should I use them at the same time? I have the three step routine products (facial soap, clarifying lotion and moisturizing gel), so when should I apply any of the serums - after moisturizer or before? Can I apply them before make up (day) as well? Or is it better to just do it at night?

                        Hi. Based on what you are looking for, I would suggest Clinique Smart Serum. You should apply your serum twice a day, and yes, you can wear it under your makeup. You would place it on your skin after your Dramatically Different and before your sunscreen and foundation. I suggest using a sunscreen each day in order to guarantee results. Thank you for your question and have a great day!

                      I currently use the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. I would like to try out this serum but am confused as to how to use it. Do I use it on it's own or underneath my current moisturizer. If I were to use it under my moisturizer and then apply makeup, etc. would that be too much and cause me to get oily quickly? It's a pricier product so I don't want to be buying both this and my regular moisturizer if I only really need to use one over the other.

                        Hi! Thank you for your question! This is a serum, so you would still use your Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel to hydrate the skin. You would apply Turnaround Revitalizing Serum after your Dramatically Different to encourage healthy cell turnover and brighten the skin. If you are looking to improve radiance in your skin, this is a wonderful option that offers continuous exfoliation. Have a great week!

                        Hi! Thank you for your question! I am noting the ingredients below. Turnaround Revitalizing Serum should actually help to keep your pores clean and clear vs. clogging them. It helps to encourage healthy cell turnover in skin and gives skin more radiance.
