Askmewhats Reviews: Clinique Repairwear

Happy Thursday! Today is a skin talk day! I will talk about the Clinique Repairwear line that I've tried a couple of months ago! I just had the chance to type in the review as it does take me a longer time to write a review on skincare products! A lot of organization of thoughts are needed! :D And recently, I don't seem to have that!

I've used this right after I finished up my Clinique's 3-step program. I actually was left with a Clinique Clarifying Lotion so it's a perfect timing to try the Repairwear Contour Firming formula and Repairwear Intensive Eye cream!

Note: I used both of these products together with a Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2.

Repairwear Contour says ---

This patented formula boosts skin ability to increase skin density. Skin looks more sculpted & defined along jaw line & cheek bone. Helps skin fight against external aggressors. Leaves ski brighter, firmer & younger-looking. Allergy tested and 100% fragrance free.

Askmewhats says ---

Pros
  • moisturized my skin instantly
  • I find it easier to put on makeup in the morning as skin is still supple and moisturized
  • has added benefit of collagen!
  • has a nice brightening effect on my face right after usage
  • skin does feel firmer after a month of usage!
  • no allergies or irritations
  • no breakouts
Cons
  • jar packaging can be further improved
Overall

I love this product! I can easily choose this over my Clinique's DDML! DDML has been my favorite moisturizer for years! But I like it if a new product can give the "moisturizing" factor plus the added benefits!

What I love about this is that it has the capacity to "lift" and "sculpt" my face after continuous use! Do not expect any magic though but I like it that the product does not feel greasy and it works so well to moisturize the skin plus the added Collagen!

Tips
  • use a spatula to grab the product, do not use your fingers!
  • apply on clean hands and rub the product between hands to warm the cream
  • gently apply all over the face starting from the cheek area
  • apply the neck area as well
  • always apply using upward motion

Will I repurchase?

Yes, I plan to use this as I'm done with my Clinique's DDML!

Where to purchase and how much?

At Rustan's Clinique Counter for Php3,100 (approx $63.00) for 30ml
Php3,950 (approx $81.00) for 50ml

Repairwear Intensive Eye Cream says ---
  • An anti aging eye cream that moisturizes while it helps repair skin's appearance.
  • Light activated spheres boosts natural lipid production or barrier repair.
  • Powerful antioxidants, such as Vitamin E, rosemary extract and a special blend of teas, protect against environment damage.
  • Opthalmologist tested.
Askmewhats says ---

Pros
  • a little seriously goes a long way
  • this absorbs to my eye area so well!
  • my eyes do not puff in the morning
  • texture is very light and not heavy
  • no allergies or irritations
Cons
  • jar packaging can be further improved
  • pricey for an eye cream that you won't finish up as you use only a little
  • does not remove bags, dark circles or fine lines immediately <-- do not expect this on all eye creams!
Overall

The Clinique Repairwear Intensive Eye cream has a "cream-gel" texture as opposed to the gel texture I love from Clinique's All About Eyes. But for it's creamy texture, I love this that this isn't heavy at all! It absorbs quickly (seriously! Less than 1 minute!) and it also gives out a "brightening" effect like that of the Contour Firming Face Cream!

I wouldn't say that after a month of usage that my lines around the areas disappeared, again, do not expect earth shattering changes as I believe most eye creams do take effect after longer period of time!


Tips
  • use spatula to grab the product, do not dip your fingers!
  • use morning and night, depending on your eye preference. I prefer using this night time only.
  • use your ring finger to apply for lesser pressure
  • apply in gentle patting motion, do not rub!
  • be careful not to get this product into your eyes

Will I repurchase?

Yes! Although Clinique's All About Eyes is my ultimate favorite! I am liking this because of the added benefit again!

Where to purchase and how much?

At Rustan's Clinique Counter for Php2,300 (approx $47.00) for 15ml




Here's how I apply my

Step 1: Grab the product with a spatula and transfer to your ring finger
Step 2: Gently dot on the undereye area,
I actually include the sides and also the brow bone area
Step 3: Continue patting til the product absorbs
Step 4: Moisturized eye!

  6. Hi, not sure if I used it correctly. Do you use it before/after "I use Moisture Surge" OR as a moisturiser on its own?

    ReplyDelete
  7. I use this before moisture surge, i use moisture surge as an extra on areas that are really dry :D
