Turnaround and Revitalise Your Skin

Clinique Turnaround Range

It's no lie that we all want glowing, gorgeous, revitalised skin. Especially with summer fast approaching, we want to get our skin in order before we have to go the beach. I mean, I'd like to get my skin looking gorgeous and glowing so I can wear no make up during summer! Well I think I have found the perfect skincare products to get your healthiest looking skin for summer.

Clinique's Turnaround Range has been around for a while, but they have just added another product to the collection to help your skin look even more radiant. The Turnaround Revitalising range is all designed to energise and revitalise your skin to leave it looking healthy, fresh, glowy and radiant.

I have been using three products from the Turnaround range for the last month. Curious about if they work? Well you'll have to keep reading, won't you!

Turnaround Revitalising Instant Facial* // $68

High-performance facial delivers radiance and smoothness in a gentle way. Revs up cell turnover to reveal skin that's fresher, more vibrant. Oil-free. For all Skin Types 

You know I love my masks, so I was instantly intrigued by this product, which is almost a combination of an exfoliant and a mask. It comes in an easy, squeezy bottle. You simply squeeze out the product and apply it liberally to your face, like you would a mask. It's a gritty, lightweight, almost foamy texture, which is easy to spread and apply to the skin. The best part is that unlike other face masks that you need to wear for 20+ minutes, you only need to leave this on for about 5 minutes, before washing off. It literally is almost an instant facial.

To remove, I wet my face and then massage the mask in circular motions, before removing with a cloth. I would suggest using lots of water to remove it, as it gritty and if you don't remove it all, you will feel little grainy bits over your skin all day, and no one wants that. 

I have been using this twice a week for the past few weeks and have been so impressed. I have been loving how my skin feels after using this. The facial does have a bit of a shimmer in it, so when you remove it, your skin has a slight glitter/shimmer to it. It also leaves my skin feeling so soft and instantly refreshed. Definitely a product I am going to be continuing to use each week to keep that radiance going.

Turnaround Revitalising Serum* // $94

High-powered serum optimizes cell renewal to continually reveal fresher, healthier-looking skin. Helps bring vibrant new cells to the surface for a refined, uniform texture and renewed healthy glow. Skin looks energized, feels velvety smooth. Oil-free. 

This is a new addition to the Turnaround range, so I was super excited to be able to try this. After using the Instant Facial, or after cleansing my skin, I apply this immediately after. It is another really lightweight product. It has a gel like, milky consistency that quickly soaks into the skin after applying it. I find that I only need about two pumps of this to cover my whole face.

The immediate results that this serum offers are so good! Immediately after applying, my skin feels soft and smooth. More pores look smaller and the texture of my skin just feels so my nicer. While immediate results don't always last, I have noticed that using this serum twice daily has really helped maintain the results. The most dramatic being in the texture of my skin. All through winter I was struggling with scaly feeling skin. So the fact that this serum has been making me skin feel and look soft is awesome. 

Turnaround Overnight Revitalising Moisturiser* // $60

Revitalizing moisture cream literally works overnight to reveal more luminous skin. Delivers the energy infusion skin needs to optimize nighttime renewal. Gently clears the dulling effects of time and sun damage, nourishes with moisture. 

This moisturiser arrived at a time when I was really struggling with dryness in my skin. I wasn't sure about whether to start using it or not, but I decided to anyway. I have always been a fan of Clinique moisturisers. They are simple and work well, so naturally I was excited to try this one out. Being a night cream, it is slightly thicker than your typically moisturiser, but it still seems to feel light when you apply it. Maybe it's the way it melts into your skin easily, I'm not sure, but it still feels light on my skin.

Clinique Turnaround Range Revitalising Moisturiser

Since I have started using this moisturiser, the dryness in my skin has dramatically reduced. My skin has been feeling more comfortable because of the increased hydration, and has just been feeling so much softer and happy. It is designed for very dry, to combination oily skin, though it might be a little too thick for oilier skin types. I am loving it though and out of the three products, it is almost definitely my favourite.
