NOTE: This has been renamed to Turnaround Revitalizing Serum - packaging is the same and none of the ingredients have been changed. This is an excellent serum! Its jam packed with amazing ingredients and leaves skin silky smooth. I feel like it works as a primer as well. Clinique claims it's an exfoliating serum and considering how radiant the skin looks with regular use of this product, there might be something to this. And if true, that's a pretty darn unique feature in which I haven't experienced with other serums. I also think this is suitable for all skin types. I have tried a ton of serums, priced from low to insanely high and this has made it into my top 5 HG fave serum list (#1 is Bobbi Brown Intensive skin supplement, #2 Timeless, #3 Neocuticals Reactive, #4 Turnaround, and my #5 pick is Kate Summerville Quench Hydrating Serum). Pretty sure I am going to keep this in my serum rotation arsenal from here on in!

I just turned 60 and STILL have oily, acne prone skin. I thought I would try this with the Turnaround Revitalizing night cream over it. My skin hasn't looked this bad in a long time. I'm not sure why, but it leaves my face tight, dried out and covered with tiny zits. I've used it every night for 2 weeks with poor results so, it's going back and will try Repairwear..

I really did see a difference while using this serum. My skin looked flawless, no dry patches or anything. I found I had a natural "glow". One of a few products where I actually noticed a difference. Would definitely repurchase.

I do not use alot of makeup.I just turned 50 & people think I'm in my 30s.The only consistent products I havef used for yrs is Clinique Turnaround Radiance Renewer ( it is HG) & Clinique Cllarifying Lotion #3.I always bought the larger size 1.7oz bec better value from Nordstrom & then Lord & Taylor.This product has been discontinued but I recently ordered one - Lord & Taylor is still selling online as of 8-25-2015.I love it & is all I use under makep or by itself. Sometimes I use Colorscience Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 in matte medium that comes in Retractable Brush on my face especially in Summer.

This is the 1st serum I've ever had that I can actually tell its doing something and I've only been using it ONE WEEK! IDK Y but my skin is bad with looking flaky when I put foundation on and its so smooth now! I use the moisture surge on top which is another must have because it def helps with the flakes and seals the serum in. But after I use the serum my skin feels so smooth...almost like I used a silicone primer but cleaner feeling. It sinks in pretty fast and I know this alone cleaned my pores out on my nose so much which also makes them look smaller. I put more serum around my nose and chin then everywhere else since that's where it flakes the worst and I haven't had an issue with flakes since I started using it. It even helped when I didnt wear enough sunscreen at the beach and helped speed up where my skin was peeling. I gad an issue with Belk when it git delivered and now I have 2 but after there gone thus will def be bought again!

Even though I voted yes to re-purchasing this product, Clinique has revamped it and it's now called Turnaround Revitalizing Serum. Apparently the Revitalizing Serum still has the same ingredients as the Concentrate Radiance Renewer but with just a bit less salicylic acid. I should have jumped on the Concentrate Radiance Renewer bandwagon a lot sooner than I did. This stuff is fantastic and despite the price tag ($50 CAD for 30ml/1 oz), I do think it's worth it. (gwp time is great) I hope the Revitalizing Serum is just as great. I have very sensitive skin with rosacea with flare ups becoming more pronounced in the past few years due to perimenopause. My skin can't tolerate too much exfoliation as that aggravates my rosacea and this is where the Concentrate Radiance Renewer is ideal for me. If you find Paula's Choice BHA solution too drying, this serum might be a better alternative. Paula Begoun seems to be keen on exfoliant skin care products with a high enough salicylic acid as they're more effective in her opinion. Personally, the lower the exfoliant content, the better it is for my skin because it has a low tolerance level. The Radiance Renewer gives my skin that gentle exfoliation without giving me dry, flaky skin. I use just a small drop all over my face every night and the next day, my skin looks fresh and smooth. Those marionette lines look less pronounced too. My makeup definitely goes on better and stays on better as well. A definite winner in my skin care regime.

This is my favorite facial care product. If I had to choose only one, it would definitely be this one. It's a 2in1 product: a great exfoliator plus a really good serum. My skin doesn't tolerate BHA, it gives me huge pimples. AHA is OK, but nothing outstanding considering the effect. AHA causes photosensitivity, so I don't really like to use it either. I feel stupid when I use a product just to need another one (high SPF sunscreen).This product contains lactobionic acid, which is a mild exfoliator, and to my knowledge doesn't cause photosensitivity.I use it every day, and I haven't experienced any irritation. It makes my skin much smoother, softer, more radiant (yes, I find the claim in the name true) and more even-toned. For me it worked the first time I used it, didn't need to wait for seeing results. It needs to be used constantly. When I don't use it for a while, my skin becomes duller and grayish in color.Those who have dry skin need a moisturizer after using this, but only because it is made for all skin types so it's not very moisturizing. Unlike other exfoliators it doesn't have a drying effect.EDIT: I've just recognized that this product contains BHA (salicylic acid) somewhere in the middle of the ingredients' list. BHA products normally give me irritation, but in this case I really haven't experienced any.

I love this product. I use it in conjunction with Avene Triacneal. My pores aren't as large, my blemishes have started fading, it gives such a nice glow to my face in the morning especially when applied at night. AHA's/BHA's are a bit harsh on my skin so I opted for a PHA product and it works amazingly well for my dry normal to oily t zone, sensitive and acne prone skin. Don't use too much or you'll flake. No scent, serum is very light and has no tacky feeling or any residue.

When Clinique Turnaround first came out, and for years afterward, it was a powerhouse exfoliant. I remember being at the Clinique counter while people were returning the cream, complaining about the "flaking" it caused, etc., but, for me it was an amazing potion. Clinique then came out with a Turnaround lotion for acne-prone skin and, for the first time ever, I had a completely clear forehead. I know I have "resistant" skin, but this serum is so feeble. Even used regularly with Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3, the concentration of salicylic acid feels too mild to exfoliate as much as I would like. I needed two pumps per application to feel like I was giving decent coverage for my face and neck, and I ran out of lotion in two weeks!

Obsessed. Makes your skin silky soft for applying moisturizer and make up after. I had a bad breakout and started using this in conjunction with the clinique even better essence lotion and noticed a dramatic difference in the texture of my skin.
