I have been using this generous sample of the new Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Smooths, Restores, Corrects (not the catchiest of names) for a couple of weeks now. Ideally I’d like to give it a fuller run but I don’t have any left! Unusually for many bloggers I’m actually in the age range these types of products are aimed at (late 30s). My skin is starting to show signs of ageing so I should be able to tell if a product is any good or not, for me at the very least. A brief overview of my skin type: I’m very pale with combination/sensitive skin. My skin is easily irritated and things like medication don’t help.
So, what did I make of this product? I really quite like it, a lot. There’s several reasons why this works for me:
: It hasn’t caused any irritation or caused breakouts. This is something I worry about with these types of products, but thankfully it’s been incredibly nice on my skin.
: It sinks in easily. Having combination skin means that sometimes a product leaves my t-zone too oily or dry areas uncomfortable. Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus sinks in easily and quickly all over my face. This also makes it easier to layer up with other moisturisers. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin at all.
: My skin is much smoother and softer. I noticed this almost immediately and the texture has been improved. I’d need to use it longer to see if it had any real effect on wrinkles around my eye area. But I’m impressed with the change in just a couple of weeks.
There’s only one thing stopping me from buying a full-size bottle of this product and it’s this bad boy:
I was very kindly given Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair for my Christmas. I’m going to start testing this out properly soon, I’ll let you know how I get on.
