Clinique Turnaround- New products

A longtime skincare favorite of mine is Clinique Total Turnaround Concentrate. I have blogged on it more than once, and it was in this years Favorites post.

This month Clinique came out with a Turnaround Body Cream and 2 more new face products.

The Body Cream is wonderful. A perfect day lotion as it's not greasy or heavy and dries quickly. It's a silky lotion and makes your skin very soft. Made to be a light exfoliator for your skin it also helps with rough elbows( something I needed) and makes skintone more even. It's a medium moisturizer. Not heavy and not light but if your skin is super dry, then as I said, use this in day and layer on a more emollient one at night . I also think it would be great as a foot lotion .
Ingredients include: has Salicylic acid, Urea, Shea Butter, Squalene, a mushroom extract, Vitamin E and Sea Whip extract .

Turnaround Smoothing Body Cream is $ 28.50 for 5 fl oz ( Personally, I'd love to see a bigger tube, but this is a good size ).

Turnaround Instant Facial-
Meant to mimic an at home dermabrasion, but quickly and soothingly. The texture is that of a light scrub .
I used this last night was very impressed. I wasn't really sure what to think, would it be far better than just an exfoliater? Yes. My skin was so smooth and even. It does work super fast, in 5 minutes, which is nice. Great for quick , need to look great NOW moment. It does leave behind a tiny bit of shimmer on the skin, but it's barely there. Basically you apply it, let it sit, then rub off 5 minutes later and you're done. I can't compare this to real microdermabrasion, as I've never had it. Nor for the time being, do I think I need it. This will help keep treatments like that at bay all the more.
$ 36.50 for 2.5 oz

Also new, but not tested is Turnaround Radiance Peel Once-A-Week System.

I am not sure about using a peel. I have samples from other brands and haven't tried them. I don't doubt they work great , so one day I've got to give it a go but I am sticking with the Instant Facial for now.

The Peel System is

8- 3ml vials & Calming Cream .5 fl oz tube $55.00
