How many of you a serum before your moisturizer? Yeah… I didn’t either in till I started working at Sephora a few years ago. I will be honest I am not a skin care know it all nor do I claim to be. I wish I was little interested in it then what I force myself to be. Why? Well because obviously skin care is the way to a flawless foundation application.
Even though I am not this skin care guru, I try to push myself to try something new every time I finish another. So a few years back I was provided the Clinic smart custom repair serum in my gratis bag at Sephora. I used it up super quick but I remember liking it. So when I was trying out skin care items, one of them really dried up my skin (Future review/blog) on those items to come. So I took my shopping happy self to Sephora, but quickly decided it’s best if I did it online. Well, I came across this serum again.

I’ve been using this product twice a day. I decided to review it because today I used up my last bit. I don’t think it’s helped with my fine lines or wrinkles, but I do see my skin feeling a little softer. I cocktail this serum with oils at night and seriously just feels so good on my skin. Over all I don’t think this has made more oily at all, in fact I love that it it’s helped the texture of the psoriasis on my face. $58, is it worth it? I believe so, I’ve spent that on shadows or lipsticks that haven’t even been touched. So why not test something that will help your skin and you might end yo loving! Hope you guys go get yourself a sample!
