I’m pretty sure that Clinique Turnaround Oil is the first facial oil from Clinique – I don’t remember seeing another, anyway. Turnaround is Clinique’s range for dull skin – complexions that need a bit of a radiance boost to look brighter and more vibrant. It’s always a little bit difficult to choose one particular range when your skin needs a bit of everything, so I’m swayed in this instance by the oil itself which is divine (not a word I use often).
Clinique Turnaround Oil is the lightest of textures – a silky pleasure on the skin – and gives an immediate softening effect. Importantly, the texture doesn’t take much working into the skin – if an oil takes too much mooshing, then I feel it can be counterproductive if your cheeks visit parts of your face they were never meant to!
I’m honestly a little bit obsessed with this oil – I love that it’s a plastic bottle and not glass and also like the dropper applicator (good for adding tiny drops to foundation or moisturiser). Ingredient wise, and hence the name ‘Turnaround’, it contains salicylic acid that provides a continuous, gentle exfoliating effect so that your skin cells never get a chance to be dull. Moisture wise, you’re looking at pomegranate sterols, olive oil and mango seed oil (yet the Clinique Turnaround Oil is feather light) and for skin protection, you’ll find Vitamin E and C. Although it has that lightness of texture that silicone products often has, it’s made without silicones.
There’s a whole new menu of Turnaround products heading our way in April – this oil has completely tempted me into the concept of the range – so I’ll be putting it to a more thorough test in the next couple of weeks. Textures are so important to me personally, and Clinique Turnaround Oil is so spot on for what I like to feel on my skin, a test isn’t really any kind of burden at all!
The release date for Clinique Turnaround Oil is 17th April and it’s £35.
