Clinique, known the world over for their famous “3-Step” approach to skincare, has introduced a serum so smart, it’s formulated for just one skin…yours! Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum is the newest serum from Clinique, and it’s their best yet for targeting and repairing your specific problem.

For years, skincare has taken a very focused approach to treating problems. You buy a product that addresses your concern and use it. If you have multiple concerns, it often becomes more of a challenge. With new Smart Custom-Repair Serum, Clinique has been able to combine ingredients that work where you need them, and aren’t activated if you don’t. This serum is so revolutionary, it holds 37 patents!

What I like is that Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum pairs highly active ingredients with calming ingredients, to get the perfect feel and balance for your skin. I’ve reviewed several Clinique serums and would definitely say that this one is my favorite so far. Smart Custom-Repair Serum starts by calming skin with Red Algae Extract, Licorice Extract and Caffeine, so that skin is more receptive to repair, as well as keeping irritation at bay.

Then, depending on your unique skin issue (or issues), Smart custom-Repair Serum delivers the actives needed for repair. In the case of dark spots/sun damage, a condition I’m always treating, it is Vitamin C and Ergothioneine, which helps fight excess melanin production and Salicylic Acid, which exfoliates skin to break up dark spots. Sodium RNA activates the natural repair systems to help visibly repair UV damage. The formula also contains an impressive amount of antioxidants, peptides–even Hyaluronic Acid for hydration.

I’ve been using Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum for the past 4 weeks, since I finished my course of treatment with the Tria Age-Defying Laser (review). And if any one needs “gentle, but effective” skincare, it’s me. I don’t want to lose any of the benefits I’ve gained with using the Tria, but I don’t want to subject my skin to anything harsh. I’m pleased to report that Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum is doing the job beautifully. No irritation, redness or stinging. In fact, my skin has never looked better.

Apply two pumps of Smart Custom-Repair Serum in the morning and evening to clean skin, then follow with your moisturizer (or sunscreen in the morning). And because it’s completely customized to you, it can be used by all ages and all ethnicities.

Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum comes in 2 sizes: 1.0 ounce ($59.50) and 1.7 ounce ($89) and you can find it at Clinique counters and This is one time when I’m happy to say “one size fits all”!
