After using this for less than a week, I can already see a big difference.
I have premature wrinkling on my forehead from far too much time in the sun in younger days. I used this on only the left half of my forehead to see if it actually works. Yep, the right half remains as wrinkled as usual while the left half looks more smoothed out.
I don't know yet if these results are progressive and lasting or if one has to continue using the product for life though.
This worked very well in the beginning, I had a very radiant glow. Behold, on my third bottle this sucked the moisture and life out of my skin. Not sure why it suddenly quit working. I don't have wrinkles but thought this would be a great product to prevent wrinkles later on. The bottle is a twist top so that's inconvenient, but I can remove the lid to get out the last drop of product. I will not repurchase.
I use this only at night, have been using it for nearly 3 months now. I only use it at night mainly because it leaves my skin feeling a bit "filmy", as if the serum doesn't completely absorb into my skin. I must say that at least the residue is not heavy nor greasy but rather matte and does not aggravate the oilyness of my skin. My complexion, however, does look brighter and the frown lines on my forehead have visibly diminished. My large pores, on the other hand, remain quite visible. My mother asked me if I had gotten a chemical peel done, so there's another good thing to be said of this product. Even tho it didn't deliver everything it said it would, I must say I am quite satisfied and will repurchase again.
I can't say exactly what this serum does for my skin, but if I use it in the morning before my makeup it just makes me look better all day than if I skip it. I have sensitive skin and it doesn't irritate me at all. I do wish it came in another type of container though - the dropper is kind of awkward.
I have been using this product for about a month now day and night after my 3 step procedure. My skin feels alot smoother and my wrinkle on my forehead and the skin under my eyes seem smoother. I have combination skin and this product seems to be working well in the dry winter environment i am in, i gave it only a 3 because i am not sure if i am seeing a lot of improvement yet.
This is the first serum I've tried and I've been using it morning and night for about a month. I like clinique and have been using the redness range for years. I like that this serum is oil free so no break outs for me. However, it made my rosacea react quite badly. My cheeks went really red each time after use. I stuck with it because my skin needs time to adjust to new products. Unfortunately it kept getting worse so I stopped using it on my cheeks and nose. I just use it on my forehead, eyes and neck now and i have noticed an imrpovement on the condition of my skin in these areas. Nothing dramatic has happened though, fine lines havent changed and pores are still visible etc. Its a shame, I really wanted to like this. I now happily use origins mega mushroon serum.
This is for the reviewer below. This product IS NOT a foundation or even makeup of any sort! This is a correcting serum, to use as part of your skincare regime, not your makeup!!!!! Sounds like some major misunderstanding has happened between you and the assistant!
I Was told this is to replace the Clinique repairwear foundation from the clinique sales assistant. iDon't be fooled,this is not the same!! It is runny,no coverage and overpriced.Clarins everlasting foundation is the nearest to the repairwear.
It worked !!! I had a lot of UV damaged melasma, I have used 55% lactic; 35% glycolic; and various Vitamin C products. In the past 7-8 years, they all work quite satisfactory but have a ceiling effect, and of course all those products make my skin much drier than normal. I developed a strategy to alternate these products and in between the rotation, I simply lay off these products & just use a heavier serum+moisturizer.
I gathered a lot of points from Sephora & I got 2 x15 ml. bottles. I didn't think much about it, but just put it on clean skin, leave it for 30-40 minutes & top it with moisturizer. It didn't burn, didn't sting & I didn't think much about it ..... until the other day, I noticed my melasma looked much lighter. I have lay-off the Vitamin C for about 15 days before using this, so I credited the result to this Repairwear.
I noticed the result after about 2 weeks, I guessed I already lay a ground work for this type of product.
I suspect this has silica in it, (the samples do not carry an ingredient list), thus giving it a cosmetic effect, a smooth & poreless & brighter look. I will definitely purchase a full size when I finished the samples although I am expecting the ceiling effect before I switch back to Vit C or acids.
I used this product in the fall of 2010. I'd been pretty bad to my skin over the summer. Hadn't worn sunscreen religiously, would fall asleep in a full face after a night of partying etc. My skin was dull and I was concerned about the damage that I couldn't see. I bought this and used it religiously till it was gone. It didn't do anything, at least nothing that I could see. Granted I have no lines or wrinkles, but I've gotten visible results from other serums such as EL's ANR. It did absolutely nothing for me, so once the bottle was empty, I moved on.
