Better Beauty Buys: Clinique Turn Around Line

Today I want to share with you some of my favorite skin care products from Clinique, or Sephora from the Turn Around Line. The Turn Around line is supposed to help with the luminosity of your skin – your skins radiance. Turn Around products increase cell turnover of your skin turning your skin from dull to radiant as illustrated here. These products are natural exfoliants that get rid of dul,l tired skin and bringing fresh, vibrant skin to the surface. Additionally, these products heal skin faster from breakouts because of their cell renewing properties; they heal the effects of sun damage.

The Turn Around Concentrate Radiance Renewer is a serum (which means it is oil-free) and you apply it morning and night after your moisturizer ($51.00).  With recommended use it makes your skin feel baby soft and smooth – providing a smoother surface to apply makeup on and I find it prevents breakouts. It is recommended for all skin types. I have been using it for several years now and love it; it’s definitely worth the price. 1 bottle will last about a month or 2  (5 out of 5 stars).

Also in the same line is the Clinique Turnaround Overnight Radiance Moisturizer ($53.00) for very dry to combination oily skin. It pumps in abundant moisture to help tone, re-texturize and plump skin from the inside out. Because it is oil-free it provides more moisturizer than the serum. If your skin is dryer you could use this instead of the serum at night or in place of serum altogether.  I recently started using this at night and am very impressed about how moisturized and clear my skin is in the morning – the only thing is it is a bit greasy. A bottle lasts 2 to 3 months (4.5 out of 5 stars).

The third product I like from this line is the Clinique Turnaround Instant Facial ($45.00) – which is basically a gentle exfoliater that I find dries your skin out less than any exfoliater I have ever used. It is applied liberally to cleansed skin for 5 minutes before gently massaging the granules into your skin.  It claims to provide all the radiance and smoothness of microdermabrasian with significantly less irritation and stress to skin. Although I find it better than other exfoliants, I still have to apply it as least often as possible to prevent my skin from drying out.  Although I find it makes your skin extremely smooth, I find I often break out the day after I use it, which is not the case with the other 2 Turn Around Products. I have also had microdermbrasion for skin issues and do not believe you can compare a gentle exfoliante such as this to microdermabrasion; microdermabrasion is much better and for me has never dried my skin out.  Instant Facial lasts 6 months plus (3 out of 5 stars).

All in all, the Clinique Turnaround line is a great radiance renewer skin care line. If I was to recommend 1 product to start with I would use the serum, which I have had the best results with as a person with combination skin.
