I don't use Clinique products usually because they are out of my price range. However, I received some Clinique miniatures as a gift a few months ago and a 30ml pot of Clinique Repairwear Day SPF 15 Intensive Cream was one of the items I received.
Clinique claims this is a "potent hydrating cream" that helps to mend the look of lines and wrinkles. It is said to replenish antioxidants and it also contains SPF 15 which protects the skin from the sun.
This cream is a deep peach colour and it's a very heavy, thick cream. It takes a while to absorb into the skin and feels very heavy.
Clinique suggests using this Repairwear Day SPF 15 Intensive Cream as part of its three step skin care regime, but I just use it as a moisturiser.
I usually apply this after I have washed my face or showered - in the way that I would apply my usual moisturiser - however it is a bit too heavy for my tastes and doesn't absorb into my skin that easily. I don't think it has really benefited my skin either. That said, I am only 26, I don't really have too many wrinkles (just yet), so this product probably isn't aimed at me.
The tub is a pearly white colour and has a green screw lid.. It definitely looks like a premium brand and you certainly wouldn't feel ashamed to have a pot sat on your dressing table.
As I mentioned before, I used a sample sized pot, but if you buy a 50ml tub you can expect to pay anything from £30.
I probably wouldn't use Clinique Repairwear Day SPF 15 Intensive Cream again, because it is too thick and intensive for me. I also think that it has probably been developed for older skin and it's perhaps a product I would get better use from in the future. I give it three stars, but if you are older, I do recommend that you give it a go.
