One thing I am very particular with is my skincare products. With thousands of skincare products available, I just have to be smart about my choices. One brand that is super smart about their skincare is Clinique and they have designed an entire SMART franchise that is full of multitasking products. These are no ordinary multitasking products either; the products in the SMART line up all can do at least four things at once to the skin.
I told you about Clinique's Smart Custom Repair Serum when it launched about 18 months ago and that is how this line all began. Now there are four more products in the line-up that are equally smart.
I have been incorporating oils into my skin care routine when I can and Clinique Smart Treatment Oil ($44) was a great choice. This oil nourishes, builds up hydration, smooths, plumps and de-ages as it protects against daily aggressors. It's a really lightweight oil that is chock full of anti-aging ingredients that help to deeply condition dry and damaged skin. It is a non-greasy oil that leaves my skin instantly radiant and feeling smooth. Vitamins C, E and Cranberry Seed Oil (powerful antioxidants) work over time to help shield against harmful free radical damage. I use this oil in addition to my daytime moisturizer by adding in two to three drops. At night, I warm up a few drops and gently pat it into my skin right after cleansing.
Also at night, I have been using Clinique Smart Night Custom-Repair Moisturizer ($57). This multi-tasking oil-free cream instantly plumps and hydrates my skin and works overnight while my skin is in its resting night. It is filled with hard working ingredients like Glucosamine, Caffeine and Hyaluronic Acid Fragments to bind that moisture in and retain it in the skin. I wake looking more fresh. It says that overtime, skin will be more firm, lifted and toned. I honestly haven't used it long enough, but it does smooth and plump my skin better than my average night creams.
