Clinique Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift Firming Cream

Clinique’s Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift Firming Cream promises and delivers an instant firming sensation — but that is not the same thing as a visible result. No skin care product can compensate for the ongoing assault of gravity, although oral supplementation with the antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid, which should always be taken with biotin (1 mg of biotin for every 100 mg of alpha-lipoic acid), may firm up sagging chin lines without surgery or exercise.

Like most Clinique moisturizers, Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift Firming Cream is loaded with antioxidants and retinol. The problem is that is contains even more alcohol than antioxidants, guaranteeing that continuous use of the product will dry the skin and leave it even more vulnerable to sun damage and wrinkling. The mineral content of the cream, however, leaves a subtle glow. Moreover, the packaging of the product admits light inside, which degrades the antioxidants over a period of 3 to 9 months on the shelf.

Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift Firming Cream for Dry Combination skin and for Very Dry to Dry skin are especially to be avoided. The one for Combination Oily to Oily skin is not likely to cause damage, but its few beneficial ingredients will quickly degrade during storage, due to poorly designed packaging.

Suggested retail price: $52.50 for 1.7 oz.
