I have been using this for several months and i think it has really made a difference in my skin. Several friends have commented on how radiant my skin looks. It is not a miracle worker, but definitely worth it. Give it about 2-3 months.
Bought after reading reviews. Took photos before use and there is absolutely no difference after using one bottle, applying morning and night to face and neck.
38 year old, some faint brown sun marks on forehead, fine lines around eyes and mouth, prone to cyctic acne.
This made no difference whatsever to my skin. I would save your money and go with a basic moisturiser and have a real laser treatment.
I really don't know why I am not getting results with this product, since everyone else is raving about it! I have used a bottle of this before giving a review, and it has taken me about 11 weeks to use it up. I have noticed no reduction in the appearance of my fine lines around my eyes, and in fact it seemed to make the lines on my forehead look deeper. The serum is silky and goes on well, doesn't break me out, but doesn't do anything else really. I won't repurchase just to see if using this for a longer time shows more results. I can't afford to buy a product that doesn't show any improvement in the first 3 months. continued >>
I've used up 1 bottle and ordered another. This goes on so smoothly and sinks in quickly. In a very short tiem I noticed a difference around my eyes and especially that 11 between my brows. In general my skin feels smoother, looks more even toned. I was using twice a day and will keep doing so since it seems to be working!
If you're in your 20's or 30's and looking to diminish fine lines and a few sun spots, Laser Focus will probably make you very happy. This review is for all of us older ladies (40-50s) whose fine lines have deepened into - let's face it - honest to goodness wrinkles. Like, Botox-worthy wrinkles. Deep, searing, horrifying...well, let's move on, shall we? Anyway, I've been applying Laser Focus religiously twice a day for about 6 weeks now. I know that's too soon to see real results but I should be seeing something. Anything. But I haven't and I seriously doubt I ever will. I know it's doing 'something'...it made my nose peel something awful so I stopped applying it there. (What? You don't have nose wrinkles?) I have a few sun spots on my cheekbones and they're still there, bright and happy. I really love the texture of this product and the matte finish. And as I said, it probably works well on younger, just-starting-to-age skin. If you have 'set-in' wrinkles I don't think you'll see much of a difference. Clinique's bloated claim of being equal to a laser treatment after 12 weeks...uh, not really. It may blur the look of fine lines, and lighten a spot or two...but laser-quality results? LOL. And as a skincare copywriter, I would dearly LOVE to know how they skirted legal issues with that claim.
Purchased this item with high hopes and it appeared to be fading dark spots, but before any other benefits could be noticed, it gave me facial cysts. :(
Can I seriously rave about this product? You bet I can! Honestly, no other single product has done more for my skin than Repairwear Laser Focus. I know that everyone reacts differently and sees different results, but I am so beyond pleased that this one is a complete HG item for me. I've been applying it twice a day, three drops at a time, for six weeks and my skin has never looked smoother, brighter, more even, and actually healthy.
While I find the fluid a little too liquidy for the dropper, it certainly makes for a clean application and I haven't wasted a drop. It absorbs almost immediately with no burning, itching, redness or breakouts. Nothing! I take it right up to the orbital eye area and have been monitoring the area along with my forehead furrows and darn it if they aren't looking softer. In fact, I've been receiving COMPLIMENTS on my skin! I can't remember the last time that happened.
In short, I can't live without it. I look forward to seeing the long-term results. And trust me, if I had to choose between food and this with my last 50 bucks, I think you know the answer. COMPLIMENTS, folks! It's a winner.
i would buy it if i m looking for a good makeup primer because it is extremely high on silicone and it preps the skin for better makeup application.
did not pay attention to sun spot changes, just thought i would not lash out $ 50 CAD for a mediocre result like this.
GOOD MAKEUP PRIMER
I used the whole bottle up plus a jumbo sized sample so I feel I can add a fair review. Only decent and for the price, decent will not cut it. This is NOT a miracle product. It suggested 3-4 drops but I was way more generous w/ my application so I got about 2 months out of the bottle using it 2x a day. A few pluses - It did not burn or irritate my eyes and was gentle on my norm/dry skin. My skin looked temporarily great - smooth, fresh but I almost felt like it acted like a glorified primer vs an effective skin treatment. Definately no effect on my melasma spot. No real long term improvements seen. Can't stand the packaging - applicator is way messy and I don't like exposing the product to air. Bottom line - acts like an expensive glorified primer. There are better products out there. Will not repurchase.
I received a jumbo sample of this product about a month ago from Sephora. I have very fair skin that is pretty much sensitive to everything. I make a point to avoid using anything that will make my skin more sensitive to the sun. I always use sunscreen and don't use products with retinyl palmitate and the like. Well, Clinique doesn't make it easy to track down the ingredient list and it turns out there's retinyl palmitate in Laser Focus. Of course it could be a coincidence that I've had an increase in the wrinkles around my eyes since I started using Laser Focus, but it could be due to the ingredients. I'm really disappointed in Clinique for not being clear about the ingredient and in Sephora for not providing the list. Be careful with this product if you are fair and have sensitive skin.
UPDATE: I posted this review on Sephora and when I went back to look at it today they'd taken it down. Pretty strange, eh?
