What is a serum
foundation?

A Clinique mantra: great makeup starts with great skin. Another truth? We love time-saving multi-taskers.  Last one: Foundation should look like your real skin—not a mask. Enter: Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation SPF 25—a new hybrid formula that packs powerful skincare ingredients into a weightless, natural-looking foundation.

“Clinique’s new Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation is built on three serum technologies and put through the same rigorous testing as skincare,” says Clinique Derm Pro and New York City-based board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michelle Henry. The clinically proven results: this serum foundation visibly reduces dark spots and evens tone, smooths uneven texture and hydrates. 

Here, Dr. Henry breaks down the key skincare ingredients in this serum foundation.

Vitamin C, along with Clinique’s proprietary UP-302 brightening molecule, help to improve the look of dark spots, while visibly evening your skin tone and boosting radiance. Salicylic acid helps exfoliate to visibly smooth your skin. Hyaluronic acid helps provide deep hydration,” explains Dr. Henry. “Plus, this serum foundation has physical sunscreens to protect against harmful UV rays that trigger dark spots and premature aging.”

Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation SPF 25 doesn’t just cover—it completes your regimen by visibly correcting, hydrating and smoothing the look of skin with every wear. Consider it the last step in your skincare routine.
