Achieving a healthy, radiant complexion isn’t just about dewy foundations, liquid illuminators and eye catching highlighters. The true key to a natural all over glow is by eating right, of course, and taking good care of your skin. A good skincare routine is super important to make sure your complexion stays nice and clear with a radiant glow. Adding a good mask to exfoliate and a good serum can work wonders for skin and give you that glow you’ve always longed for. Especially a good serum! Serums are like moisturizers on steroids as they contain a higher potency of skin loving ingredients without all the water and actively transform your skin with regular use over time.
Before I introduced serums to my routine, I didn’t think I needed one or that it was necessary to any skincare routine. However, after falling in love with the Lancome Youth Activating Concentrate, I soon learned just how useful serums can be to target specific skin concerns. I have dry skin with skin concerns like fine lines and dullness so I’m always on the hunt for a good hydrating serum that’ll plump up my fine lines and make me look naturally radiant. I didn’t think anything could compare to the awesomeness of Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum but I believe that Clinique comes dangerously close with the Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer. It doesn’t really help to fill and plump up my pesky fine lines and it doesn’t claim to. What it does, however, is make my skin look brighter, more even and extremely radiant. No illuminator needed!
The Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer is an oil free serum designed to optimize cell renewal to reveal fresher, brighter and more radiant skin. It’s an older formula that I received as gratis from Clinique training but it feels exactly the same as its replacement: Turnaround Revitalizing Serum. I’ve been using it for over a month and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. The Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer is a lightly hydrating formula with a lightweight gel texture that absorbs quickly and instantly adds a luminous glow. It layers well with any eye cream, moisturizer or night cream I toss at it without feeling heavy or making my skin look greasy. I’ve used the Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer day and night for weeks and I’ve certainly noticed a change in the texture and appearance of my skin. My complexion feels smoother, looks more even and even when I remove all of my summer glow essentials my skin still glows and glows.
My only complaint with the Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer is that it doesn’t come in a larger bottle. In about 2 months, I was pumping like a mad woman to squirt out the last few drops to keep that glow going. Clinique seriously needs to come out with a jumbo version! I would buy it in a heartbeat! If you’re tired of piling on highlighters and illuminators to give you that natural glow then I totally recommend heading to your local Clinique counter to check out the Turnaround Revitalizing Serum. I think you’ll love it too!
