Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream. Really?

Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream is a mouthful and I’m lazy. Let’s just call it Laser Focus for eyes. I bought this more than 2 months back, and have been using it every day and night ever since I ran out of my ANREye. That would mean I’ve been using it for about 6 weeks. Does it really correct wrinkles?

The eye cream comes in a light plastic tub that looks pretty neat, with its silver lining packages 😉 The cream has a thicker consistency than ANREye since the latter is a gel serum, but the cream absorbs really well without leaving a film of grease on my eye area. Instead of massaging the cream into my eye area, I prefer dabbing it on, and patting it in. That way, the skin around the orbital area isn’t pulled or tugged in any way. There are some fine lines at the under eye area, near my eyes, and I blame it on my habit of rubbing my eyes. It’s not really visible unless you come up really close. I thank my mother for starting me young. I started using eye creams at the age of 25, and while I skip it once in a while, I’ve been using it diligently since I hit 30. Eye creams do work, if you use it consistently for a long time 😛

This cream proudly says that lines are less visible in 14 days. Well, it’s past 2 weeks, and I’m nearly into my 3rd month of using this. While I don’t have a huge concern over this problem, the minor lines I mentioned earlier are still there, just as before. However, I find that I wake up to less puffy eyes, and my dark circles (while still visible) are not as bad anymore. Paris B of My Women Stuff has the same experience of less puffy eyes. This is my first Clinique eye cream, and it’s been pretty alright so far. The texture is lightweight just as I like it, absorbs quickly without leaving any residue, reduces puffiness and dark circles, but I can’t vouch for the 14-day line reducing claim.

This Laser Focus eye cream sells for RM170, which is RM30 cheaper than Estee Lauder ANREye. If you were curious, I’d tell you that I don’t mind using this in place of my ANREye which says quite a bit about my product loyalty (HAHA!). However, when I’m done with this tub, I have a feeling I will try another. I’m already half way through, so it won’t be long until I’m looking for a new one. I’m always curious to try other brands, and isn’t it better for you to get another review? Excuses, I know. Haha!

Do you use eye creams? What are you using now?

    I am using Clarins eye defining lift together with Advanced extra firming extra contour cream.

    • Oh, is it any good? You use them together day and night or do you use one for day and the other one for night?

      • Josephine

        I feel the eye cream so so but eye defining lift is the better one, it gives less puffy eyes, when i have short sleep.
        I use them together day and night, coz defining eye lift only is not moisture enough for my eyes.
        The BA at clarins said eye defining lift can be used with other brand eye cream, which i am going to do after i used up eye contour cream

        • Interesting! I’ll go check it out one day 🙂

    I also tried a few sample of ANREye but it did not really reduce the appearance of my dark circles. I read comments on Make Up Alley that you have to use eye serums with eye creams and not on its own for the effect to be visible. I plan to get Vichy’s ProEven Daily Eye Daily Eye Corrector Dark Circles when I go down to Singapore since the reviews are not bad. Will keep this Clinique eye cream in mind as well. Thanks for the review 🙂

    • I’ve used a few tubs of the ANREye and it worked fine on its own though 🙂 Maybe it’s just me. Hahaha! This one is not too bad, should check it out.

  • Aww thanks for the link 🙂 Being really terrible at keeping to a routine, I’ve fallen off the eye cream bandwagon… AGAIN! If I develop horrible crepey eyes I only have myself to blame >.< But the depuffing action of this one is seriously impressive. Glad you experienced it too!

    • Hehehehe…. you gotta remember to use your eye cream, hun! When you age another 10 years, you’ll thank yourself 🙂

  • Victoria

    By the way, I think when I last check with the Estee Lauder counter 2 weeks ago, the ANREye is being sold for RM230 and not RM200. A very expensive eye product and it is only a serum. LOL.

    • Has the price increased so much? I know there’s a new one, and that one’s a little more expensive. The taller slimmer ANR for Eyes is pricier at RM230 and the older shorter one is RM200, as far as I can remember. I gotta go check to confirm. Thanks for the heads up!

  • HI Lily! I’ve also used eye creams diligently since I was 30, and sometimes before that. I’ve tried tons of eye creams but find that the one that works best for me is the good old super basic Clinique All About Eyes (the normal lighter version). By the way, do you put eye cream on only around the eye, on the undereye area? Or also on the eye itself?

    • I put on eye cream everywhere around the orbital area and on my lid and on my under eye. I don’t care what other people say but wherever I feel is dry, I will pat it on. Lol!

  • I ran out of my last eye cream awhile back and forgot to get a new one LOL so lazy. I’ve also given up on my dark circles most mornings, I like to think that they balance out my eyeshadow hahaha. This sounds like a good one, and I usually ignore whatever ridiculous claims eye creams make anyways. Do you know which one you’ll be trying when you run out of this?

    • Lol! Thank goodness for concealers I tell you. I’m eyeing the Lancome Renergie eye cream duo thing because it looks cool and I like the purple packaging. Not because it’s supposed to help my eyes or anything. Lol!

  • I tried their regular eye cream when I was younger, and it always gave me some weird growth along my lower lash line so I had to stop. I haven’t tried any skincare products from Clinique for a while now! I just ran out of my Pai eye cream and started a Living Nature one. I’m pretty bent on going cone-free for my skincare routine, even though it doesn’t really make sense!

    • I’ve read on effects of ‘cones in skincare products but I don’t know enough to comment. All I know is that my skin is quite tolerant when it comes to silicones, so I’m ok with it… I guess. LOL!

  • Hello Lily!

    I am a tardy missy when it comes to applying eye creams. One day I do, the whole of next week I don’t. =D But I really should start applying it diligently for there already are fine lines! I have never tried the Estee Lauder ANR eye cream but since you mention this works pretty well…. I have to check it out the next time I hit the mall! xx

    • Yes, do check it out. I think it’s great to de-puff, and to see some action in zapping lines, you might have to be less tardy and be more diligent 😛

  • I’ve been very bad with eye creams in that past, I’m also a chronic eye rubber.. I’ve been much better. I actually really love the Clinique even better eye cream, I love the metal application tip. I’m sure this should do something for prevention

    • Hi fellow rubber! It’s like rubber-holic anonymous or something. Hi, I’m Lily, and I’m a rubber. LOL!! I try not to rub my eyes as much, but habits die hard. I keep telling myself that if I rub my eyes too often, even the best eye cream might not help. Haha 😀

    Nice review. The problem I have with eye cream is that I don’t ever see a difference. I do use them because I am afraid of what I will look like if I don’t, but I never get the results they advertise. Of course I never lost twenty pounds by taking a pill either.

    • Hi Melissa. I think consistency is the key. I’m sure there is a difference if you didn’t use an eye cream at all!

  • Interesting! I bought Kiehl’s Rosa Artica eye balm and it is nice! I like the texture alot but i just haven’t gotten into the habit of using it consistently in my inconsistent routine lol!

    • My momma always tells me… consistency is the key. Then she calls me a lazy bum. Hahahaha!

    I used to use Clinique, but it stopped working after a while. After turning 40, I started to notice that I was getting crows feet around my eyes. Living in a very dry area, it didn’t seem to matter what type of moisturizer I used, my skin still remained extremely dry. I started using the Made from Earth Chamomile Eye Therapy on a daily basis and I see a major difference. It does not take much to provide an ample amount of moisture to my eye area. I started to notice that after using it for a couple of days that my skin was becoming much softer and younger looking. As a result of the product, the lines that I had around my eyes became less noticeable.
