Clinique Repairwear Contour Firming Formula

Posted on: June 17, 2009

Clinique Repairwear Contour main

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.

Actually, this is one of my KIV stuff to buy.. now i think i better not .

Hi Simonne,
Thanks for dropping by.

I think Clinique is quite generous with sample, and Clinique here usually has those small container that the sales assistant will fill the product for you to try at home. Or, try the product on your inner hand or below chin, see if there is any redness after an hour. If redness occurs, most probably the product will not suit your skin. This is what I usually do, hope the tips will be helpful to you.

Have a nice day!

hei, i just got the sample today. n i messed up the instruction… did u use it bfr or after moisturizer. and did u apply it all over ur face at first or just concentrated on the cheek, jaw and neck area?

thanks!

Happy New Year Vannessa,

According to Clinique website, this is to be applied after the 3-step/usual skin care, twice a day over entire face and neck, avoid eye area.

However, I used this as face moisturizer (all over my face) after toning and serum, but since it irritated my face, so I used it on neck only. If you intend to use this in day time, please make sure you wear sunscreen at least 30 over it because the retinol would be causing photo-sensitive. (“v)

My friend who is 60 bought it and was advised to use it with sun screen. Why should the sun screened be used together with this range? Any side effects if not used with sub screen? Any side effects to this product?

Hi Prayma,
If you were talking about this Clinique Repairwear Contour Firming Formula, then I can understand why the Clinique SA advised it should be used together with sunscreen in day time. First, this product does not provide any sun protection itself. Secondly it contains Retinol (Vitamin A, also a potent anti-aging ingredient) that obviously can cause photo-sensitivity without any sun protection. You can read more about photo-sensitivity online.
