Clinique Smart Treatment Oil ($44) is probably one of the best facial oils I’ve come across to date. Now I can’t say if the Clinique Smart Treatment Oil formula is actually delivering target repair as needed, where needed as it is marketed for. But I sure love the idea that my facial oil hits my face and proceeds to “think” about whether or not I need more or less moisture in certain areas.
Being smart aside, this oil is a must for those of us who want softer, smoother skin!
Clinique Smart Treatment Oil comes at you in a 1 oz dropper bottle for $44 with a slew of moisturizing oils from sunflowers, sesame seeds, safflower, and more. It deserves mentioning this arrives in a plastic bottle and I did a little excited dance about this. I have a ton of face oils and all of them come in glass packaging and I’m a klutz so yeah, plastic packaging is totally aces for me as it’ll survive a drop if I knock it off my vanity or counter.
I think one of the biggest benefits behind this formula is it is completely fragrance-free with an excellent mix of skin loving plant oils and antioxidants that help smooth, soften, and hydrate skin. It’s a thinner, runnier texture compared to other facial oils I own and it does have a greasier feel on first application but absorbs fully once massaged into skin.
I wouldn’t recommend this formula for oily skin but those of us with drier skin will love it. And as I mentioned above it is fragrance-free which makes it a good pick if you’re sensitive. I found the formula very gentle and very hydrating.
Clinique packed this with Safflower Seed, Sesame Seed, Sunflower Seed oils to hydrate skin but it also contains condition Clary Extract, Barley Extract, Wheat Germ Extract & Vegetable Squalene that strengthen the skin’s barrier to aid in retaining moisture. It’s also loaded up with Vitamin C and E so it’s quite the little power horse of a formula.
If you’re looking for a highly hydrating facial oil that will actually repair dehydrated, dry skin for a smoother, softer appearance I’d say Clinique Smart Treatment Oil is the way to go!
I have a feeling this one will replace my other facial oils.
