I really do wish Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment understood my eye issues. Clinique introduced Smart Custom‑Repair Serum in 2014 and apparently it was a customized solution that would target areas in and around your face that needed addressing. Dark spots? Clinique’s smart serum would know what to do with those! Moisture? No problem! The smart formula would target those dry areas and hydrate them for you!
I think the idea of Clinique Smart Custom‑Repair Serum sounds brilliant in theory but I’m not sure how “smart” it is.
Now Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment uses the same technology as the serum! Apparently it targets and repairs “as needed, where needed”. One formula that will brighten, firm, plump, and repair the appearance of finer lines and crow’s feet!
Sounds great right?
The thing about Clinique eye cream and their skincare in general is you need a lot of time and patience with it. You see, I’m not that person. I’m impatient! I want it now! I like products, like Lancome Bienfait Multi Vital Daily Replenishing Oil where I see visible results right away. But if we’re realistic most skincare, no matter the cost, high or low, doesn’t produce visible results right away.
The best advice I ever received from a Clinique sales representative was, “Use it everyday and be patient!” She was right because with time and patient I get some really great results from one of my favorite eye creams from Clinique, Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream.
I mention this because I gave Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment a real fighting try but…
It failed me.
I’m pretty sad about this as I was hoping this formula would be as great as my beloved Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream!
It’s weird because this formula has a ton of excellent antioxidants as well as peptides. These ingredients should help repair the signs of aging and blur the appearance of finer lines. This comes housed in a pump jar which keeps all those good ingredients staple and happy.
Now the texture is a lightweight lotion or if you will it’s a serum of sorts. For testing purposes I used it and it only under my eyes but I will say I felt the need to follow up with another eye cream after using it because it is very, very, very lightly hydrating. I need a lot more moisture than this provides unfortunately. I used the bottle I purchased completely in 6 month period using it day and night. Sadly, during out relationship I didn’t notice many changes. Well, let me rephrase that, I didn’t see any changes at all.
I rely on eye cream to depuff (unfortunately, about 99% don’t), waken up, and hydrate my dry, puffy eyes as well as possibly treat finer lines (which, again, unfortunately so few do!).
This is an excellently formulated eye cream but for some reason it failed to work for me! I think it particularly failed in the moisture department as this is way too lightweight for those of us with terribly drier eyes!
Unfortunately, Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment wasn’t terribly smart about pinpointing my under eye issues but who knows maybe it’ll work for you!
