Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum Review

Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum

Hello again!

This serum claims to diminish fine lines/wrinkles, brighten skin tone/even dark spots, lift and firm and lastly improve radiance and texture. It’s an all-in-one serum that definitely got my attention because it’s suppose to target your specific skin concerns.

I like the packaging because I prefer a pump for serums over a dropper – it is airtight and will stay fresh a lot longer. The serum itself has a slip to it – it isn’t a liquid that is runny but sort of like a serum and moisturizer in one. It instantly plumps the skin after just one application and it makes your skin super smooth and soft. Before I get into the results; I’m in my mid twenties with some acne scarring, slightly uneven textured skin, fairly noticeable pores and a very oily complexion.

After about 6 weeks of daily use I noticed a huge difference – 90% of my acne scars were gone and the other 10% were hardly noticeable! I noticed that my skin looked overall more radiant and plump; it looks very hydrated and healthy. It also helped with my skin texture – I felt much more confident without foundation because I had a healthy glow. I don’t struggle with lines and wrinkles or sagginess so I can’t comment about that but since it deeply hydrates I would imagine that it would lessen the look of lines and wrinkles.

Overall, I really enjoyed this serum but it is on the expensive side however, if your desperate for a serum that can lighten acne spots – this is my recommendation to you.

Hi again!

I’m always interested in trying out different products that claim to shrink my pores. I have noticed that my pores definitely look less visible from using products that really deep clean my skin but in terms of shrinking my pores; no product has been able to do that yet.

This product claims to minimize the look of pores, unclog pores, control oil, regenerate and repair cells, brighten and firm the skin. It contains lots of beneficial ingredients such as niacinamide which promotes collagen synthesis, normalizes sebum secretion and control acne. It contains vitamin C, A, E and lastly, salicylic acid; which helps acne and soothes the skin.

After using this regularly I didn’t really notice a difference in my pores but I did notice smoother, healthier looking skin. It definitely improved my skin texture and brightened my complexion. It has a pleasant slightly floral scent and the formula is very water-y; absorbs instantly. It has a demi-matte finish and sits nicely under makeup.

Overall, I enjoy this as a vitamin serum to help skin texture and give radiance however, since I didn’t notice it doing much for my pores I wouldn’t recommend it for that.
