Turnaround Concentrate Visible Skin Renewer
STORY TIME! :D I felt that I was starting to break out a bit (I was about to start my menstrual cycle in a couple of days or so) so I went to the Clinique booth at Norstrom while I went shopping. The person at the counter there recommended I use this serum after talking to her for a while. I was told that I might breakout more and then my skin will start cleaning up.

So just a little background on my skin….
I have sensitive, combination skin so it’s extremely difficult to find products that work on my skin. I generally don’t break out but I do whenever I start my menstrual cycle and they tend to be on my chin area. So I pretty much have pretty good skin except for when I’m about to start my period. Also I live in the Northern California area so my skin might change when I go down to Southern California for college but as of now I have generally blemish free skin.
Little fun fact:
If you feel your face and you feel small little bumps that aren’t red those are clogged pored (pretty much pimples in the making).
I use it in the morning after I wash up and at night time before I go to bed. When I first used this serum I did have new pimples pop up. So I wasn’t completely surprised and I continued to use it. During my third day of use I was still having pimples pop up but I did see the pores on my nose getting smaller. I used to feel small little bumps on my nose before I used the serum but all of those little bumps were gone! I continued to use the product for a couple more days to find my face in general feel super smooth and without little bumps even though I still had some pimples. My skin also looked a bit more radiant!
I would definitely recommend this to blemish prone people with sensitive, oily, or combination skin. If you have dry skin you might want to use a little heavier moisturizer. This is a bit pricey but it’s not expensive either. Compared to other high end cosmetic brands it is actually pretty cheap but compared to drug store based brands it is expensive. I most likely would purchase another bottle of this serum but as of now I won’t because I already purchased another serum so maybe after I use that serum though, I won’t know until I start using that serum.
I apologize for the wierd spacing.... I tried to fix it but it won't fix . Sorry ^.^
