The latest skin-care launch to offer a two-in-one concept is from Clinique. Editor Trudi Brewer shares how it targets different skincare concerns.
Clinique Smart Clinical MD Multi-Dimensional Age Transformer Duo, $130.
What is it?
Two different moisturizers in one pot formulated to tackle skin sagging, wrinkles and dryness. One side, called Resculpt, a white-coloured gel-cream is designed to lift the skin, and the other, called Revolumize, lavender-coloured, offers pure hydration to plump the skin and smooth fine lines. According to Clinique, everyone's skin ages differently, and this new cream duo targets specific concerns with a customized solution. The dual-chamber idea allows you to have a multiple benefit cream to correct all those ageing concerns, all from one jar.
What's in it?
The lavender-coloured formula, Revolumize is boosted with hyaluronic acid, soybean protein, and yeast extract, together these ingredients help to tighten and lift the skin. While the white-coloured creamy gel, Resculpt contains soybean seed extract, sweet almond seed extract, and whey protein all rich in amino acids, they help to boost the natural collagen levels in the skin, firming and strengthening your skin as it ages.
Why do we like it?
It delivers on a few levels. First, we like that it's a multi-purpose product, which helps lighten the load in your beauty bag, especially if you travel. Second, our skin is dynamic and never feels the same day-to-day. While tightening and lifting targeted skincare is what most women are looking for over 40, they also want a cream that will address how their skin feels with seasonal change, hormones, and lifestyle. Designed for all ages and all skin types, you can customize this cream to treat different areas of the face. For example, the Resculpt formula works well to help lift the neck and jawline, while the Revolumize formula gives the cheeks and forehead an extra boost of hydration when the skin is feeling dehydrated. Living up to its name it is a smart face cream indeed.
Tip: Use the dual-chamber of moisturizers together or separately both morning and evening.
