Rated 4.27 out of 5 stars
I started using this product when it was introduced. I'd had a dry, patchy spot on my checkbone periodically, which my liquid moisturizer didn't seem to touch. Three days with this product and it was gone---completely and forever (so long as I use this product). I've used Clinique since I was 40, and consequently I had reasonably good skin, but the Smart Clinical MD Multi-Dimensional Age Transformer Revolumizer did exactly what it said: it transformed my aging face. Plumped and revitalized it. I've never encountered anything like it. If I had to use only one Clinique product, this would be the one.
Problem: recently, Clinique has been repackaging its products, and I ordered what I thought was this product in a new packaging, a tube. I'd tossed my container and did not see it among the products listed as night creams. I thought it had been taken off the market. My dry patch is back for the first time in years. After going through some pricey concoctions (one with retinol, which I don't need to use nightly!), I sat down just now and went through all the night products listed on site. I'm hoping this is the right one, the one in the dark purple container. Please don't stop producing this. Promote it better, for it is a miracle worker!
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.

I really don't like how this product smells. The thicker cream leaves my skin super shiny/greasy looking. It looks like a thin film on my forehead. The second cream is better. But smells. I wash and exfoliate before using. I've waited more than 40 mins to see if the greasy look goes away. It never does. I keep having to wash my face again after use. Can't return since I used the free gifts that came with the order.

What happened to Repairwear Uplifting Firming Cream, very dry to dry (non SPF)? This product works great and I've been using it for a long time. I cannot use your SPF, it breaks out my skin. Please tell me you did not discontinue it. If so, what do we use now? :(

I Love your Clinique smart clinical MD. The ones I previously purchased were just the tightening cream and not the duo. I don't see just the tightening cream on your site. I just wanted the single cream. Do you still sell that product?

I have seen great results from using this product!!!

I was unsure about which areas to apply each of the two creams. There were no instructions on the jar, and it would be helpful to have a better idea of how to use this products. So far, I haven't noticed any significant changes in my skin, but will finish and re-assess.

I bought this as it was supposed to replace Clinique Smart Night. There's no comparison. It's cakey and goes on heavy, doesn't even seem to penetrate in the skin. I've always loved Clinique but this is a big disappointment. Since its heavy, I even tried on my hands, and it did not moisturize. I would not recommend this product at all. It makes me wonder what's happening with their products. And, it's expensive for what you get.
Stephanie from Kingsport TN
I cannot use it, it makes my skin feel very sticky and I don't like the way it makes my skin feel. I placed 3 separate Clinique orders without thinking, and ended up with 3 trial size jars but can't use it. Wish I could trade it for something else.
Tracey from Maryland
I am a lifelong Clinique user and highly recommend. I have been using this product for two weeks with some results. However, quite disappointed with the quantity in the jar…half empty, so not sure if I'm willing to spend the money with less product?

Clinique has always been a safe brand for me, but this product is unusable for me. There is an herbal smell to the sculpting product that causes my eyes to burn. The odor is unpleasant and I have to remove it within minutes of application. I don't seem to have that problem with the plumping side (I think) so I will try using only that product. I don't recommend to buyers who are fragrance sensitive.

The product seems good, too early to tell. Don't be disappointed at how the amount of product looks. It's not filled to the top of the jar. The white cream had a bubble so I tapped it down where the product dropped to half an inch below the top of the jar. The purple cream is filled at an angle so one end is lower than the other, one side was near the top of the jar, the other end was 3/4 below the top of the jar. I'm sure the amount is correct, just don't expect the product to be near the top of the jar. Maybe if in the future the product could be level without a bubble.

I was looking for a product that will moisturize and improve the look of my aging skin. Clinique Smart Clinical is the best product I've used, and I have tried many. I've been disappointed over the years with products that claim to do many good things for aging skin but Smart Clinical holds true to its claim of anti-aging properties. My skin not only feels silky smooth and plump but the fine lines and deeper wrinkles are less noticeable after only one week of use. I'm excited about how long term use will benefit my skin! This is my go to moisturizer. I use it twice daily and wear a 60 spf sunscreen under my Even Better Clinical foundation. Great combination that works for my 70 year old skin.

I was a big fan of Clinique Smart Night for a long time, I don't know why but they stopped selling it. So tried this one, hoping it would be similar or better product. But it didn't work for me, nothing really changed. Also didn't like the sticky texture and some peeling off when I tried to put eye cream a little later over this cream.
Stacey from CA
I have purchased this many times. I love the product. This last purchase, the container was barely 3/4 full. For this price I'll find something else.

I love this cream is fabulous I been using clinique since I'm in my 30's the best products for de aging and anti aging this product made my skin tight please don't discontinue this product

clinique fan for the elegantly clean formulation of classic products, i was disappointed by this.
natural extracts are nice and rich in unique nutrients. yeast is a cheap way to get literally everything a cell needs. sadly, these also carry with them their allergens. allergic to beer, i sure reacted to this one. soy sensitivity is pretty common too.. clients should check the list of ingredients, and hopefully the brand will work on the chemistry instead of blending in microorganisms.

Very disappointed. Clinique used to take pride in being clean, fragrance free - this cream is purple. My skin doesn't need Red 33 and Ext. violet 2. To match the jar? Not ordering again.

The packaging for this product is horrible! I used it a couple of times and the protective top (not the lid) literally sealed the container. I couldn't for the life of get it off. I ended up throwing it away because I was so frustrated. I am a long time Clinique user and would definitely not recommend this product! Wasted money and product!
michelle from FL
This product has mild vinegar smell. I have very sensitive oily skin and this one works well on me. If you can't use skin care product with alcohol inside it, this cream may work for you. It does not feel heavy for oily skin too.

I've only been using this for a week. My frown lines are gone, my forehead lines are softer, my cheeks are fuller, and my mouth creases are less defined. My skin is firmer and also doesn't slide around my face anymore.
Lili from AZ
After using two jars of its double version (plumping and sculpting) I decided to purchase the plumping one only given the fact that I could definitely see my skin getting better and better day after day in my sagging areas. My skin is freakishly sensitive and I usually break out with hyaluronic acid products (including very expensive "medical grade" ones). I absolutely love this cream. I use it right after the Smart Clinical Repair serum and I couldn't be happier with the results. It's super hydrating but not greasy at all, it doesn't pill up at all under my SPF and I wear loads on it daily. I have nothing negative to say about it.

It is thick a bit in my opinion and I apply to my neck.
Patsy from MI
I have been using Clinique for 60 years and was happy with their products until I tried this one. It didn't do anything but, in fact, seem to make more wrinkles especially around my mouth. I have used Repairwear Laser Focus for years and was really upset to learn they discontinued it. Why would a company discontinue a product that worked? I've been looking for something to replace it but many of their other products don't seem to get very good reviews. Guess I'll just have to settle for wrinkles.
Kat from Seattle
There were no instructions with the product. I don't know whether to put the purple cream on first or the cream colored one. Do I mix them together or use on alternate days. I think they will work good but haven't used it long enough to see results.
Cassie from Md
I tried this product for the first time two days ago and I already LOVE how it makes my skin feel. My face felt smooth and soft and hydrated. I had a glow and when applied my make up my skin looked healthy and youthful. Clinique products are WORTH every penny. I've been using Clinique since I was in my late 30s now I'm 55 and my skin is in fantastic shape. This product delivers.
Luiza from Yerevan
Bought this product for my mother based on the thick and rich texture that she prefers. Decided to try it myself too. Resculpting (white cream) goes smoother and easier on the skin than the Revolumizing (purple one). I enjoyed both creams quite a bit but find that Revolumizing cream would end much faster as it takes quite a bit to spread it out on skin.
Skin feels very nice, firm and deeply hydrated afterwards. Doesn't feel heavy on the skin at all, which is Very surprising considering how rich both creams are (can be because of my extremely dry skin).
Rating 4 stars because the packaging is not very comfortable to use and also the Revolumizing cream smells really bad. Overall, I'd recommend to try. Very interesting product.
