We’ve been impressed with this particular serum by Clinique.
It garnered a lot of attention for this product, largely by saying that:
“At 12 weeks, the visible wrinkle-reducing power is remarkably close to a dermatological laser procedure, 63% to be exact.
That’s a pretty bold claim, and while we could not locate the study they are basing this off since they don’t make the study public, what we do know is this serum does work.
(From a press release we do know it was tested against Erbium laser treatments. One side of the subjects faces were treated with the serum and the other side of face was treated with the laser. Results were monitored after 4, 8 and 12 weeks).
This product won Cosmopolitan’s Beauty Award in 2010, the reviews for it are pretty positive, and by using it you can see a diminishment in lines and wrinkles, as well as an improvement in skin texture, in as soon as 4 weeks.
It contains quite a bit of ingredients that do different things. Here are some of the big ones:
Vitamin C (in the form of aminopropyl ascorbyl phosphate) – for anti-oxidant protection.
Retinyl Palmitate – a peptide to boost the skin’s collagen production.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 – to reduce the movement of facial muscles.
Micrococos Lysate – to help repair UVB damage.
Photolyase Fermentate – to help with natural cellular repair.
Pinanediol – to help increase microcirculation.
Hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate – to help with hydration and elasticity.
With this product, we think Clinique goes a step further than they do with many of their other products. It actually replaces their now discontinued Repairwear Deep Wrinkle Concentrate for Face and Eyes product. While there may be better options out there, this one is very good for the price its at.
It contains a nice mix of ingredients, which include peptides and anti-oxidants.
It applies well, absorbs quickly, and isn’t oily.
This is a serum. Apply just 3-4 drops to your face and around your eyes, twice a day.
Some people have issues with the applicator not working well and being messy.
We very much like that it’s fragrance free!
