Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment Review

Hey lovelies,

This month Clinique launched their new Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment and, having been able to test it out for the past couple of months, I'm ready to tell you what I think of it!

Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment Review

Smart Customer-Repair Eye Treatment sure wears a lot of hats - Clinique says it 'visibly brightens, lifts, smoothes crepiness and diminishes fine lines and crow's feet. Plus, a boost of hydration helps repair dehydrated skin'. You just gently pat the light gel around the orbital area morning and night, easy at that. Unlike some other eye creams I've tried, it's not tacky or cloyingly fragranced, nor is it thick or slow to absorb; instead it sinks in quickly, is allergy tested, fragrance free and gentle enough to use on the eyelids too. 

The ingredients list reads like a greatest hits of skincare and although I don't purport to be an expert on that subject matter, I'm particularly pleased by the inclusion of hyaluronic acid (to attract and bind moisture) and algae extract (to soothe and calm skin). Also included on the list:
Cladosiphon Okamuranus extract, hydrolysed rice protein, vitis vinifera (grape) seed extract, sodium RNA, acetyl hexapeptide-8 and palmitoyl hexapeptide-12, whey protein, plum extract, morus nigra root extract, scutellaria baicalensis root extract, vitis vinifera (grape) fruit extract, ascorbyl glucoside, glucosamine ferment, cucumber extract, sunflower extract and barley extract.
(Psst - if you'd like to check out some bloggers who really know their stuff on skincare, I highly recommend Hyacinth Girl, Nail Girl, Lab Muffin and Makeupwithdrawal).

Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment Review

Over the past few months I've certainly noticed that the area under my eyes is much more hydrated and the slightly pebbled texture seems less pronounced. Crow's feet and fine lines aren't something I've begun to notice too much yet at the ripe old age of 26, so I can't accurately report on that. I do feel that there are some brightening effects - despite being ill rather often of late with the last of the winter weather, my skin has been looking a lot better than I've felt and my undereye circles have not been making many appearances. 

The packaging for the whole affair is rather sleek and simple, a brushed silver plastic tube with a clear cap and a pump which dispenses enough to comfortably apply to both eyes without needing to go back for seconds. It contains 15ml of product and has an RRP of $95NZD.

Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment is available from Clinique counter nationwide and online at Smith and Caughey's  now. International readers can purchase on Amazon and Ebay.
