Review: Clinique Turnaround – 15 Minute Facial mask

by Tavia

Few months ago I bought Super Defense cream from Clinique and I received also the Clinique Turnaroud 15 minute facial for free. I didn’t knew anything about this mask at that time but I wanted to try it out anyway. From the first usage I was impressed with the results, and I say this in the good way.

The texture was kind of sticky and the cream color is light blue. After 15 minutes while the mask was on my face, I saw the difference. I was impressed by its anti-ageing results as I saw that fine lines were diminished. My skin was vibrant, had also a radiant look and it felt so soft and smooth. I couldn’t believe how after only few minutes the minor imperfections of the skin, as red spots or small signs from pimples were completely gone.

It’s great because it fits all skin types and after using it regularly (like once- twice a week:) fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduces. After finishing the mask that I’ve received once I purchased the Clinique SuperDefense cream, I decided to buy it again, cause for sure its worth the money. I payed around 30 eur for 50ml, which i don’t think is that much considering that I’m using it twice a week mostly. After 3 months I still have some left.

If you use it weekly, Turnaround 15-Minute Facial delivers all the radiance and smoothness of microdermabrasion –  with significantly less irritation and stress to skin.

What they say about Turnaround

Speeds fresh, vibrant cells to the surface. Promoting a continuous unveiling of clearer, more luminous skin. Leaving skin with a velvety feel and more perfected look.

  • Immediately gives skin a vibrant, luminous, radiant look
  • Minimizes the look of surface imperfections, fine lines and pores
  • Instantly retexturizes, leaving skin feeling velvety soft and smooth
  • With continued use, fine lines seem erased

Who should use?

As I’ve said before, all skin types benefit from this facial mask with oil-free formula. You can use it weekly or anytime you wish to give your skin and immediate radiance boost.

How to use it

You can start by applying a very thin layer, after you have removed your makeup and cleaned your face properly. You must avoid eye area, eyebrows and hairline, cause it has a sticky texture that will be unpleasant to remove after it has got in contact with your hair. Then leave it on for 15 minutes or longer, until dry. Gently rub off in a circular motion with your fingertips or a warm, wet washcloth , then rinse with warm water.

This gentle manual exfoliation, coupled with the formula’s exfoliating ingredients, helps to boost brightness, refine skin’s texture, impart a velvety smoothness.

You don’t have to worry about a thing cause it’s allergy tested and 100% fragrance free so you won’t get any red spots or some other things on your skin after using it.

The clinique turnaround-15 minute facial mask is wonderful. Please, give more informations about products anti-age.

I have used the 15 minute turnaround product. Recently, this product has changed.
It comes in a tube instead of a jar. It has granules in it, which is rough to the
face. It causes irritation to the skin.

Is this product availabel in the jar? The jar is smoother and is not rough to the
skin. If available, I would like to pruchase the jar instead of the tube.

Hi Carrie, I’m happy that you liked the product as much as I have. I’m still using this mask in the jar, I’m living in Europe and here it’s easy to find it in Sephora or other beauty shops. Last time I bought this mask from a duty free shop in airport. If you are from US or any other country where you say this mask in the jar can’t be found then you can try Ebay. I search on Ebay and managed to find the mask in the jar like you want. Here is the link: http://bit.ly/2nZp04

Hi tavia, i beg to differ! I just used the facial mask, and my face looks like a tomato… I am extremely confused on your review because I currently feel like I am dying Tavia. Instantly my face became bright red, and i started bleeding on my T zone. So…

Tavia January 23, 2017 - 2:04 pm

Hi Rowe! OMG I can’t believe you had such a terrible experience from a simple face mask. It never happened to anyone I’ve heard. Bleeding? Are you serious? In case you felt any discomfort why didn’t you removed the mask and waited 15 minutes? I never heard anyway bleed on their T zone or any other part of the face from a facial mask. There are skincare products that didn’t work for me, but once I felt a discomfort I removed the product without letting things get serious. I received so many positive feedback from this mask, it’s a well know face mask. Maybe you are allergic to some of its ingredients (it’s your job to know which ingredients are you sensitive too) but I doubt we are talking about bleeding. Anyway you should seek medical attention. In the article there’s also a link to another to another blogger review as well.

I didn’t know that this mask is so good! I’m absolutely inchanted about what I have just read about it. Tomorrow I’m going to Sephora to purchase a jar of this marvel. You just described what I was looking for in a mask: new fresh and luminous skin, improved skin texture, minimizing of the skin imperfections.
