Clinique Repairwear Deep Wrinkle Concentrate for Face and Eye
($52.00 for 1.4 ounces) lists 72 ingredients, so it's reasonable to think that at least a few of them might be helpful for your skin, though how much of any one ingredient is actually in here is a question. After all, the contents can only add up to a 100%.

Claiming to deal with "wrinkles at their base" and to "jump-start natural collagen production," this anti-aging product is one many baby-boomer consumers will take seriously.

However, despite the somewhat misleading claims (shared by dozens of other Estee Lauder products, and Clinique is owned by the Lauder corporation), this product is as state-of-the-art as it gets.

What is remarkable is the elegant formula. Just as advanced as most of Clinique's Repairwear products that aren't packaged in jars, its formula includes effective and abundant antioxidants, water-binding agents, cell-communicating ingredients, potent anti-irritants, fatty acids, plant oil, and smoothing film-forming agents. It really is a brilliant formula that has the potential to significantly improve the health and appearance of skin.

Will it vanquish wrinkles? No, at least not those related to years of unprotected sun exposure. But it will help skin help itself to an improved, smoothed appearance, thus making earlier damage less apparent. That is reason enough to highly recommend this fragrance-free product.

One more comment: The serum texture makes this a suitable product for oily skin looking to benefit from topical antioxidants without making skin feel slick or too moist.
