Product Showdown: Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum vs. Hey Honey Good Morning Silk Facial Serum

on May 20, 2015

I recently received a sample of this product and was excited to give it a whirl.  My skin shows the effects of many fun and enjoyable trips to places like Hawaii, so as you can imagine, there is some slight damage which likely requires some correction.

I was pleased with the overall performance of this product.  I felt my skin was smoothed and the product performed well.  However, there was one aspect to this serum which I did not like and that was the odour of the product.  It has a very light chemical smell and as my skin warmed the smell became more intense.  I can’t precisely describe it, but it closely resembled burning rubber.

Another downside of this product is the price.  On the Clinique Canadian website, the prices range from $69 to $175 per container, depending on the size of the container you wish to purchase.  While it is true that a little of this product goes a long way, I still believe it is tremendously overpriced considering how many other similar products there currently are in the marketplace.

For instance, I also received a sample of Hey Honey’s Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum and have been using it religiously every day since receiving the generously-sized sample with my April, 2015, Ipsy Glam Bag.

It wears incredibly well, and a little dab travels far and goes on smoothly.  It absorbs instantly, leaving my skin just as supple and smooth as the Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum, but without the unattractive odour.  And at $41.00 per container, it is far more affordable than the Clinique product.

For the Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum:  3 stars out of 5 for an excellent but overpriced and not very nice-smelling product.

For the Hey Honey Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum:  6 stars out of 5 for an excellent and reasonably-priced product with no offensive odour.  A bonus star for not testing on animals!
