Tried & Tested: Clinique Smart Serum


We’ve come a long way since the moisturiser was introduced. Revolutionary as it was, they’re being knocked out the park by the fearful facial oils and now, super serums. But don’t go binning your moisturising partner in crime, it’s just time to add a little ‘something, something’ to your skincare regime.

One of the newest serums to hit the market, Clinique’s Smart Custom-Repair Serum, has been researched for five years to bring something revolutionary. So it must be good, right? Our testers trialled it for 4 weeks and this is what they thought…

“Normally Iai??i??m quite fussy about the skincare products I use, however this has become my favourite night time serum.Ai?? I gravitate towards it before all my other serums.Ai?? I love the texture of it and it absorbs so nicely into the skin. It helps repair my skin overnight by combating any problem areas that may have flared up, whilst also tackling my dehydration lines.Ai?? It feels amazing and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a new serum!”

Aimee Jess – Assistant Category Manager

“I’m not very good when it comes to edging away from my skincare regime but I wanted to give this serum a go. I have combination skin so the prospect of a serum wasn’t entirely appealing but I needn’t have worried. I applied two pumps as per the instructions on my face and neck, morning and night – I’d say you could even get away with a little less as it really soaks into your skin and spreads very easily. My skin instantly felt smoother and looked much fresher and I can say after a months use my skin tone has noticeably evened out and looks much more radiant!”

Are you a serum fan? If so, let us know what you use!

My name's Bianca, Menswear Editor. Contrary to belief, I love Eastenders but wasn't named after the character... heyday of hoops and ponytail quickly erased from memory. Times have changed (thankfully) and although I love beauty, I equally love a good men's oxford shirt and jacket or two, for myself of course. You'll now find me flicking through men's magazine pages and my favourites list is increasingly becoming male dominated. Dare I say, there's a lot to learn from their style...
