A step back in time with Clinique CX R+ De-Aging cream

Clinque CX-R+ De-ageing Cream

Back in 1985 when the first ‘Back to the Future’ movie hit the screen, besides the undeniably irresistible charms of young Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), it was Doc’s time travelling DeLorean that really captured my imagination …”what if I could turn back the hand of time?”

With time-travelling in the literal sense sadly still looking decidedly implausible, quashing my dreams of being able to predict winning lottery numbers, thanks to the scientific geniuses at Clinique’s laboratories, it appears that skin time-travel is now a reality.

At just a decade in from my physical prime, I have accepted that aging is an inevitability, but slowing down this processes is clearly high on my agenda and any cream that stakes its claim as being able to fulfill this objective clearly deserves a look in.

Combining anti-ageing agents and a potent moisturiser, the experts at Clinique have formulated CX R+ De-Aging cream to head up their frontline assault against the first signs of ageing. Marketed with the promise of making my skin look younger, reducing visible wrinkles, expression lines and other environmentally related conditions, lets take a closer look at the ingredients and their respective properties …

CX R+ De-Aging ingredients and their purpose

  • Vitamins C and E, Retinol, Whey Protein – support skin’s natural renewal
  • Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Seed Oil) – helps soften and smooth skin
  • Petrolatum – assists with providing optimal moisturisation levels.
  • Siegesbeckia and Orientalis Extract – helps maintain the look of elasticity
  • Centella Asiatica – helps skin support its own natural collagen and elastin production, helping to visibly enhance skin’s natural firmness and resilience

First introduced back in 1968, Clinique was the first dermatologist-created, prestige cosmetic brand. Their mission was, as indeed continues to be, to provide the highest quality and most effective products to enhance every skin type and tone. The brand’s meticulously testing of its scientifically formulated wonder products, has helped Clinique grow its reputation as one of the world’s leading authorities on skin care.

All cosmetic products, which now encompass men and women of all ages and ethnicities are Allergy Tested and 100% Fragrance Free and available in over 135 countries from 17,000 sales locations.


CX R+ De-Aging cream has been specifically designed to work on any skin type and is reassuringly absorbed by my skin without leaving any oily residues, leaving my skin feeling refreshed, hydrated and supple.


“With a retail price tag of £135, as to be expected of Clinique, it really is a matter ‘you get what you pay for’, and within the first 2 weeks I could already notice a visible difference.”

Everything from packaging aesthetics through to the feel and cooling sensation upon application, oozed luxury, and thankfully a small amount of cream goes a long way.

A beauty must-have, providing an effective one-stop-shop combo of powerful anti-aging formulae with a daily moisturiser.
