Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum



Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum ($69 CAD/$59.50 USD 30ml/$99 CAD/$89 USD 50ml) is a brand new serum from Clinique. It's currently available at Clinique.com, at Clinique Counters, Sephora stores and almost anywhere Clinique is sold.

Smart Custom-Repair Serum is a unique All-in-One serum. Rather than simply mixing ingredients from multiple serums together, it's been designed with over twenty years of research and development, five years of clinical trials and thirty-seven global patents with a smart molecule. This smart molecule means that this serum seeks out damage on the skin by recognizing the unique signals damage sends out. With the serum being able to find out what the problem is, it's more effective at treating it.

This serum is custom fit for your skin, so it treats your concerns. Clinique Smart treats the damage you see and the damage you don't see as well. Having treatment for Fine Lines and Wrinkles, Lifting and Firming, Dark Spots and Pigmentation, and Dullness and Uneven Texture, this serum is a powerhouse in anti-aging. Beginning this serum at a young age will help to treat and delay the damage that has occurred during your life.

As for how the serum itself works...


  • Diminishes Fine Lines and Wrinkles - A blend of peptides repair wrinkles while glucosamine and salicylic acid help refine the look of fine lines. Also helps to prevent the formation of new lines with Sodium RNA and patented enzymes that correct UV Damage as it occurs. 
  • Firming and Lifting - Natural collagen boosting ingredients such as Siegesbeckia Orientalis Extract and Whey Protein rebuild skin’s natural support structure to help visible revolumize thin, sagging skin and restore elasticity. 
  • Reducing Dark Spots and Evening Skin Tone - Brightening botanicals Dianella Ensifolia and Scutellaria Baicelensis Root Extract along with antioxidants Vitamin C and Ergothioneine help visible reduce the appearance of existing dark spots and discolouration. Salicylic Acid and Glucosamine exfoliate skin to help break up dark spots and speed the departure of ‘melanin dust’
  • Improving Radiance and Texture - Glucosamine and Salicylic Acid encourage cell renewal for smoother, more luminous skin. 
  • Soothes Skin and Leaves Skin Plump and Supple - Calms skin, making it more receptive to repair with a cocktail of soothing ingredients including Red Algae Extract and leaves skin feeling supple and plump with Hyaluronic Acid, Barley Extract, Wheat Germ Extract and Cucumber Extract. 
Overall I've enjoyed using this serum as it has reduced the number of serums I need to use for my skin. I'm able to use this as a main serum and relegate my usual serums to a 'specialty' status, using them on a case by case timeline. The serum leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and the plumping effect is immediate.

I definitely recommend checking out this serum if you have concerns with two or more of the issues it corrects. It has a beautiful texture, multi-tasks intelligently, and will keep your skin looking, feeling and acting young for years to come.
