We’ve all got our secrets. Some of them stay that way for a reason, but there are others that really should be shared. Case in point: skincare secrets and beauty regimens. I mean, wouldn’t our lives all be a little better if we knew the secrets others employ to achieve perfect, glowing skin?
I’ve definitely got a few of my own. For example, I love keeping my eye creams (especially those with roller ball applicators) in the fridge. When you wake up after a late or sleepless night—like I did this morning—nothing feels better than the cooling sensation you get when applying a chilled product to puffy, tired eyes. It instantly soothes and awakens the eyes. And my grandmother slathers on night cream like it’s going out of style. She coats her skin every night for intense hydration. Let me tell you, this woman may be nearing 80 but her skin would give you reason to believe she isn’t anywhere near that age. It just goes to show that these little beauty secrets we have and pass on can make all the difference.
As a blogger, I’m constantly switching up my beauty routine to find out what works and what doesn’t. I may have found a new secret weapon in the never-ending pursuit of perfect skin in the new Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum. In the past couple of years, I’ve found serums to be an indispensable part of my skincare routine—they directly target the problems you need taken care of and take your hydration to the next level. When it comes to skincare, I find it can be difficult to choose products that take care of all your needs, which is where this serum comes in to play. Rather than putting the focus on one area, it works to aid the different skin issues you may have, targeting those that need help—kind of like a skincare superhero. Its formulation goes after uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and dullness, helping to boost firmness and hydration. I can’t speak on long-term results just yet, but in the time that I’ve been trying it I have noticed a boost in the brightness and hydration of my skin, which is especially key for me right now, given my early mornings and long work days.
I have to say, I’m a really big fan of the formula. I’m used to serums that are a little runny and they tend to leave my skin feeling a little shiny. This serum is a tiny bit thicker than I’m used to finding in a serum, and I find that it has an almost blurring effect on the skin, which is lovely. I’ve been using it twice a day to help optimize effectiveness and very much enjoy how it feels once applied as it blends in seamlessly with the skin.
Overall, the Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum has been a fantastic addition to my beauty routine, a little skin-enhancing powerhouse. I can’t wait to see how it performs long-term and will be sure to continue using it. Now that I’ve spilled some of my skincare secrets, I would love to hear yours.
