I am more than a little obsessed with skin care and always ready with dough to splurge on serums which means business . For my dehydrated and dull skin I struggle to find the right serum packed with the biggest punch which can deliver a clearer, brighter and hydrated skin.
So when I read great reviews like targeted repairing abilities of Clinilque’s Smart Custom repair serum ,You know lovelies, I was not going to miss it .I have been using it for last 5 weeks and can not rave about it enough. First, My fickle combination to oily skin did not break out.The texture of the serum is little thick and silky ,so it makes your skin feel instantly soft, smooth,lush and ready to take on the day. I am not fond of fragrance in my skin care products. This one has very mild fragrance which I like . I use this every morning and every night with Clinique’s Repair wear uplifting Day cream and repair wear sculpting night cream. I have noticed that my skin has brightened and my dark spots have lightened- though the difference is only minor. But friends it’s only 5 weeks. Think extreme hot weather ,fully air-conditioned home and workplace of oppressive Asian Summer. However dry the indoor is due to Air-conditioning ,My skin still feels moisturized ,credit for which definitely goes to this serum. I would like to see what the serum does to my overall uneven skin tone -which is my main concern. I don’t have wrinkles but fine lines are a concern too.Clinique says that the ingredients of the smart serum understands the particular needs of your skin and provides targeted delivery of the goodies for custom repair of the damage you see and the damage you don’t. Reason for naming the product as smart custom repair is that it targets multiple concerns and delivers Firm skin by addressing the loss in elasticity, reduces dark spots and evens out skin tone , improves radiance and texture and Diminishes lines and wrinkles, you know Ladies…….the tall claims.
Key ingredients which I understand from the long list of ingredients to be beneficial to my skin are Algae extract, various fruit extract,Vitamin C, salicylic acid ,hyaluronic acid , wheatgerm oil and various Peptides. Though Paula’s review is not that favorable particularly due to grape fruit extract as it might make skin photosensitive, I am not that concerned as I use Sunscreen daily.So far I am enjoying the serum and definitely repurchase it as I would like to continue using it till 12 weeks to assess the potency and will definitely be back with a review.
Have any one used this serum ? Also let me know which Clinique’s product you love the most?
