Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum 30mls £48 50mls £68 100mls £110

Hey guys, I love trying out new skincare and I've been using this for about 2 months now so think it's time for a review. 

What they say: 

Clinique Smart Custom Serum.
 A serum that can change your skin’s future. Now there’s a custom serum smart enough to understand your skin’s past and change its appearance in the future. - Addresses the appearance of uneven skin tone, lines and wrinkles, firming, or radiance - For all ages, all ethnicity - Five years of research. Patented technology

What I say:

I used this not expecting much to be honest as aging isn't one of my main concerns but thought 'hey I'll just it as 'insurance' for my skin' if you like. After about a week of using this (on a night generally) I actually forgot to put foundation on - it wasn't till I finished my make up I realised I hadn't applied any base (VERY unlike me) I couldn't believe it my skin actually looked good enough to go foundation less! It must have been doing something. Then to top it off a few nights later after taking my make up off before bed and doing the whole skincare routine, I went to get into bed and my boyfriend said are you not taking your make up off before you go to bed!!?? What!! Now let me start by explaining first that he's very much your typical bloke and doesn't even notice when I change hair colour never mind not removing my make up before bed. I asked if he was joking and told him I'd just washed my face. He then said 'wow your skin looks really nice like make up' (very blokey thing to say). Well that comment alone sold this product to me and I will 100% be repurchasing after this runs out only I'll be going for the large size next time!  

This serum would be suitable for a lot of skin types. In particular I think this would be a fab starter serum for someone who doesn't know where to start in the world of serums as it targets each different personal skin concern. It 'knows' your skin and targets problem areas that you're not even aware of yet hence why this is a 'SMART' serum. I would work well under your usual moisturiser therefore it just slots right into your routine easily. I love the fact it targets a range of skin problems, it just makes it a multi tasker in it's own right.

The consistency is almost gel like and it instantly absorbs into the skin, I never notice a residue left on my skin which is perfect as I'm more on the oilier side, it does leave a nice velvety finish on the skin and would be suitable for all skin types. A very oily skin may want to skip using this on the mornings and just save for evenings but personally I've worn it under moisturiser and make up and it sat beautifully.

All in all I really recommend this serum and feel most skins would benefit from using this, if you have a few concerns you want to target and don't want to buy separate products then this is the serum for you, I also think this is just perfect for a persons first serum and it targets the majority of skin complaints.

There's no doubt that I'll be using this serum in for a long time and will certainly be stocking up. 

What do you guys think? Have you tried it?
