Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum


by Jeanne Sutton
08th Jun 2014

Five years and thirty-seven patents in the making means this skincare cocktail delivers…

Clinique?s latest serum targets uneven skin tone, dark spots, dullness, lines and wrinkles. The cocktail of active and calming ingredients, of which some were cultivated in the Israeli desert, soothe so if you count yourself sensitive where skin is concerned this one is definitely on the to-try list. Brightening extracts are on hand to lend you a glow while the collection of antioxidants, including trusty vitamin C, and salicylic acid are on hand to break up dark spots and keep your tone even. Wrinkles and lines are undermined tanks to a blend of collagen boosting peptides with encapsulated repair enzymes visibly repairing UV damage. Even whey protein is playing its part attacking sagging skin and boosting elasticity. Moisture is guaranteed thanks to hyaluronic acid and barley, wheat germ extract and cucumber extract Sounds like a smoothie – except maybe for the acid part.

If summertime radiance and looking luminous are upcoming goals then a visit to Clinique is in order.

Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum is available exclusively at Brown Thomas from 6th June and nationwide at Clinique Counters from 27th June.
