Happily received such a 15ml generous sample as GWP from my Clinique haul. According to Clinique, the Repairwear Contour Firming Formula fueled by unique Retinol/Peptide Complex, multiplies skin’s capacity to generate structural type 1 collagen, which is important to support dermis elasticity.
I must admit the consistency is great for combination skin. Lightweight and moisturizing, dewy gel-cream, drink up quickly if apply sheerly, keeping skin smooth and shine free. Skin feels refreshing cool upon application, may be a little tightness but it will not moisturize sufficiently when skin is dryness prone.
Due to certain ingredients, my broken capillaries appears extremely visible in few days, leading the face became redness easily despite I wore sunblock diligently and limited to sun exposure as Clinique advised. On the other side, I also noticed skin had been slightly brightened up. Regret those potent anti-aging ingredients like retinol, AHA… are usually too harsh to my sensitive skin for daily use. For that particular reason, I only able to use this on neck since Clinique claims it define, sculpt, contour.
After a month I used-up the cream sample, I have not noticed any visible improvement on my neck. May be those with non-sensitive skin has better luck than me can verdict long-term use result. Normal retail price of Repairwear Contour Firming Formula is 3200 baht for 50ml in Thailand.
