Hi Friends, I got Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Visible Skin Renewer only because I have oily, acne-prone skin and I hate using scrub as in I don’t really have face covered with acne, but there is always one pimple or so lingering somewehere on the face and use of scrubs aggravates it and suddenly there are two or three more. Also, those singular pimples on my face almost alwayssss leave a deep dark scar, which I have to take a lot of care to lighten and reduce.
Hence, I was looking out for a good chemical scrub rather than a physical one. After a lot of hunting, I realised Clinique makes one and since Clinique products are supposed to be considered a safe bet for skin, since they are allergy tested, etc., etc., etc., I decided to shell out around 2000 rupees for 30 ml quantity! pheww!!!!
What the Company Says:
*Unveils skin’s optimal radiance: brighter, even-toned, luminous.
*Achieved through an unprecedented multi-level skin renewal process. An advanced cocktail of exfoliants continually speeds fresh, vibrant cells to the surface.
*Skin immediately looks perfected, feels velvety-smooth.
*Over time, the appearance of fine lines and discolourations is reduced. Oil-free. Ideal for all skin types.
My Experience with Clinique Turnaround Concentrate – Visible Skin Renewer:
Its a nice lightweight skyblue plastic bottle with a pump. The pump pumps adequate quantity to cover entire face. It is completely fragrance free, which I love my products to be. The gel-like consistency spreads well and a very little quantity is required for the face. It gets absorbed into the skin pretty quickly; however, it somehow feels heavy for my skin.
For all skin types? I wish, it broke me out!!!! Like I said, it felt a little heavy and made my skin oily in a little time, so I kept it for night-time use. The second time I applied it in the night, I broke out!!!!
I tried once more and it gave me two more break outs!! I got very irritated. My face practically showed just 3 pimples rather than anything else and I decided to keep it away for sometime. I did not want to blame this serum alone, I thought there could be other products to blame.
After about three to four weeks, when my skin got clear, I decided to give it a try. Yet again, I got a couple of breakouts with single application. I thought probably its not meant for night-time use. So, I started applying in the morning and again within two more days of usage, more pimples gave previous ones company!!!!
I am soooooo angryyy!!! aren’t Clinique products supposedly tested? My skin is not even 1% sensitive, probably its only my skin reacting like that, but really, I am so angry and depressed because my 2000 rupees have gone down the drain!!
By the way, I turned to reviews online to see if I was the only one, but no, I found a hell lot of reviews talking about breakouts and how this serum plays havoc with the skin!!!! Most of them who faced this problem were dry-skinned gals (but hello! I am hyper oily skinned and it broke me out badly too). For the very teeny meeny amount of girls that it worked for, it took about one to two months time to show a little result and I really don’t think its worth it!!
Tearfully coming to it pros and cons.

Cons of Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Visible Skin Renewer
😥 Breaks me out and way too much!!!!
😥 I bought this serum to exfoliate my skin to reveal fresher new skin and reduce blemishes, but it gifts me with fresh breakouts and additional scarring!!
😥 Extremely expensive.
😥 No brighter, even-toned, luminous, blemish-free skin. I mean how am I supposed to know if it does that or no!! I absolutely can’t use it again after even one usage!!
2000 bucks gone down the drain. I am soo stunned!! I don’t know if i want to brutally throw it away, just make it sit there and decorate my vanity table or give it to my mum (it would feel ruthless to do that).
Would I buy it Again?
Nooooooooooooooooooo!! :tremble: I wish I had taken a sample of this one. I mean I got some samples of other products with purchase of this product and some were umm-uhh and some I absolutely loved. I wish I had bought a deserving product and this one would have been among the samples. On second thoughts, no, it would still add to my facial blemishes) since one usage is enough for this brutal product!! :tremble:
Would I Recommend?
No way, but if you are curious and if you want to try it out, ask for a sample on your other purchase or apply in the store and let it be for a day, like one tests foundations.
No rating, well, ermmm, I would like to give it a minus 5!!
