Estée Lauder Review



In the beauty world, few names are as synonymous with beauty and skincare as Estée Lauder. The global company now includes nearly 30 brands, including MAC, Clinique, and Crème de la Mer, and is sold all over the world, but it has very humble roots. Here’s a closer look at the woman behind the brand, Estée Lauder herself, what the company sells today, and are Estée Lauder products right for you?

Is Estée Lauder Worth The Money?

A common question about this brand is if the products are worth the cost. Estée Lauder products are expensive, for example, the Advanced Night Repair Serum Duo is $193.

In our opinion, Estée Lauder products aren’t worth the money, simply because there are other skincare brands that offer similar products that are less expensive.

One brand is Carrot & Stick, a clean skincare brand that perfectly balances the gentle nurturing of plants with the powerful results of innovative science.

Carrot & Stick intro bundles deliver great value for money because you can bundle 3 full-size products worth up to $240 for $88.

What’s Inside Estée Lauder Products?

Here’s a closer look at the active ingredients commonly used in Estée Lauder products. Vitamin C, peptides, and retinol make up the core ingredients for the Estée Lauder skincare line. These ingredients should all be part of your skincare routine.

Vitamin C
We’ve been hearing for years that Vitamin C is the best anti-aging ingredient. It’s a potent antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals, the unstable molecules that contribute to the formation of premature wrinkles and fine lines on the skin.

Vitamin C also helps fade dark spots, evens out skin tone, and increases radiance. As if that wasn’t enough, research suggests that when vitamin C is applied to the skin, it significantly reverses aging-related structural changes by influencing collagen and elastin synthesis.

It’s in Estée Lauder Perfectionist Pro Serum. 

But our favorite Vitamin C serum is Carrot & Stick The Defence Serum. It contains 3 distinct types of Vitamin C that work together to help fight free radical damage. We recommend using it every morning.

As you age, your body’s production of collagen and elastin slows down. These two proteins are responsible for your skin’s structural support. As a result, the skin loses its natural plumpness and smoothness. 

While collagen is necessary for maintaining youthful-looking skin, the collagen protein is too large to absorb into the skin topically. That’s why applying skin care products that contain collagen won’t provide the anti-aging benefits you’re looking for.

This is where peptides come into action. Peptides are the building blocks of protein, and they are easily absorbed into the deeper layers of skin due to their smaller size. 

Estée Lauder Resilience Multi-Effect Moisturizer Tri-Peptide Face and Neck Creme includes a tri-peptide complex to reduce signs of aging. 

If you’re looking for a peptide serum, we recommend Carrot & Stick The Repair Serum. It contains 7 plant-based peptides to promote plumper and smoother-looking skin.

Retinol is the go-to anti-aging ingredient recommended by dermatologists and skin experts. It’s clinically proven to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve uneven skin tone, restore skin firmness, and shrink the appearance of enlarged pores.

The only downside? Retinol can often lead to side effects like skin dryness, peeling, and irritation. 

It’s in Estée Lauder Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment. 

Use retinoids at night. We recommend this retinoid oil serum. It contains Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, an ingredient that provides similar benefits with less irritation.

Who Was Estée Lauder?

Estée Lauder was born in New York, in 1908 to Hungarian and Czechoslovakian parents. She became interested in beauty after her Hungarian uncle, a chemist, came to live with her family and started whipping up skin creams in the kitchen. She learned how to make her own creams as well as the best way to apply them. Inspired by the belief that “There are no homely women, only careless women,” Lauder launched a beauty company with just four products.

Estée Lauder, the company, was officially launched in 1946. Lauder promoted her products by pounding the pavement and introducing them to women at beauty salons where she gave out free samples of her products. This was considered unusual at the time. Her first big order was $800 worth of products from Saks Fifth Avenue, which sold out in two days. The 1953 launch of Youth Dew beauty oil was the company’s first blockbuster product. It was a bath oil scented with jasmine, vetiver, and patchouli. Lauder also pioneered the “Gift With Purchase” concept which is now considered a mainstay.

What does Estée Lauder Sell?

Today the Estée Lauder brand sells a wide variety of products, including makeup, creams, skincare, serums, and fragrance. Here’s a closer look.

Estée Lauder Skin Care: The comprehensive line of Estée Lauder creams and moisturizers includes DayWear Anti-Oxidant 72H-Hydration Sorbet Creme SPF 15, a whipped cream designed to have a lightweight feel, as well as Revitalizing Supreme, an anti-aging cream that can be used twice a day. The Nutritious Super-Pomegranate Radiant Energy Lotion Fresh Moist is a facial spray that adds a quick blast of moisture. Advanced Night Repair Mask is soaked with the namesake serum and is designed to give skin a quick boost. The ReNutriv line is Estée Lauder’s most expensive. The ReNutriv Ultimate Lift Generating Youth Cream retails for $310 and is powered by Floralixir Dew, which is thought to help firm and strengthen skin.

Estée Lauder Eye Creams: The eye products are designed to moisturize as well as target the signs of aging. Advanced Time Zone contains grape seed and rosemary extract to tackle fine lines, and Revitalizing Supreme + Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Eye Gelee comes in a slim tube and is applied with a gold-tipped applicator.

Estée Lauder Eye Serums: The popular Advanced Night Repair facial serum is also available as an eye serum that can be used twice a day, under an eye cream.

Estée Lauder Cleansers: Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm transforms from a balm into a silky cleansing oil as it is massaged into the skin. The Multi-Action Foam Cleanser/Purifying Mask pulls double duty as a daily cleanser that can also be used as a three-minute mask.

Estée Lauder Makeup: Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup foundation is an oil-free formula designed to give medium to full coverage with a matte finish. The Pure Color Envy line of lipsticks is pigment-rich and hydrating. The Bronze Goddess is an oil-controlling bronzer packaged in a compact

Estée Lauder Fragrance: Estée Lauder’s original scent, Youth-Dew, is still sold today but has been joined by other classic fragrances such as Cinnabar, Intuition, White Linen, and Beautiful.

What Are The Most Popular Estée Lauder Products?

Advanced Night Repair is arguably Estée Lauder’s most famous product. Officially called Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II, this product is thought to be the industry’s first serum and is designed to help reduce the signs of aging (read our review here). Other popular products include the Tri-Peptide Face and Neck Creme SPF 15, which is aimed at anyone looking to improve brightness and boost skin firmness. Rapid Firm + Lift Treatment with Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is powered by AHAs (a fruit acid) which helps dissolve dead skin cells and improve skin texture and smoothness. The Nutritious Super-Pomegranate Radiant Energy Moisture Crème contains the antioxidant pomegranate, which helps protect and nourish the skin. Estée Lauder has also embraced the popular K-beauty item, the Essence, with its Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion. (Not sure what an essence is? Read our guide here.)

How Much Do Estée Lauder Products Cost?

Estée Lauder products are considered prestige, and are priced in line with other department store brands. The Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Crème retails for $85, and four Advanced Night Repair Masks are $82. Advanced Time Zone Eye Cream is $64.

Where Are Estée Lauder Products Sold?

Estée Lauder skincare products are sold at department stores including Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom, as well as beauty stores such as Ulta and Sephora.

Do Estée Lauder Products Work?

Whether or not a product “works” can be a matter of personal opinion, as well as how an individual’s skin reacts to a product. One person’s miracle product can cause a breakout in someone else, or do nothing at all.

When evaluating whether Estée Lauder works, the brand certainly has its fans and has been around for a long time. Some of its iconic products include Advanced Night Repair, which has won an InStyle Best Beauty Award and Allure’s Reader’s Choice Award in 2015 and 2016. The Double Wear Foundation received a Best of Beauty Awards from Allure magazine in 2018. Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick scooped an award from O, Oprah’s magazine, in 2018.

Estée Lauder shares user reviews on its website. The Perfectionist Pro Rapid Firm + Lift Treatment with Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 has garnered almost 200 reviews, with 90% of reviewers recommending it. It has 4.6 out of 5 stars and feedback includes “my skin looks brighter and pores tighten when used” and “Perfectionist Pro is the closest skincare grade that I have tried that isn’t in office physician/medical grade or Rx. The results are truly awesome. “ Those that didn’t like the product said it didn’t do anything for them- “I received a free sample of this product Perfectionist Pro serum, and I bought a full size to try, but honestly after using this, I don’t see any difference. I expected more from Estée Lauder.I am so disappointed this time.”

Sephora offers a wider range of reviews. One of its newer products, the Nutritious Super-Pomegranate Radiant Energy 2-in-1 Cleansing Foam, gets almost 7,000 “loves” and a 4.5 rating from 35 reviews. “I have tried so many cleansers and this is one of the best facial cleansers I have ever tried. It does not leave your skin dry but removes all the makeup, etc. it foams well and cleans well.”

What Are Some Alternatives to Estée Lauder?

If you’re looking for skincare products to address the signs of aging, we recommend Carrot & Stick. Carrot & Stick maximizes the use of powerful ingredients and minimizes the use of superficial ones, resulting in advanced skincare solutions that help promote healthy, more youthful-looking skin. We recommend The Repair Serum, followed by The Moisturizer.

Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Review

Estee Lauder has created dozens of best selling products over the years, and continues to release new and exciting formulas based on upcoming innovations in the industry. One of their newer launches has been the Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean collection. The products within this range, like the Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Foam Cleanser/Purifying Mask contain the brand’s proprietary cleansing technology as well as natural, skin-loving botanicals which are chalked full of vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients. According to the brand, this product can be used in two different ways, depending on your needs, as well as your skin type. First, this product can function as a daily cleanser which can be used morning and evening to remove impurities and debri from the surface of the skin. Secondarily, this product can also be used once or twice a week as a quick purifying mask that you only have to leave on for three minutes to receive the benefits of this product.


Estée Lauder Perfectionist Youth Infusing Serum Makeup Review

Estée Lauder Perfectionist Youth Infusing Serum Makeup is an oil-free foundation that provides medium-to-full coverage and is said to brighten, hydrate, and reduce the look of fine, dry lines. It is available in 15 different shades so that you can choose the one that best matches your skin tone. The active sunscreen ingredients in this foundation are octinoxate (7.50%) and titanium dioxide (1.90%). Octinoxate is a synthetic chemical sunscreen ingredient, which means it protects the skin by first absorbing UV light, then transforming that light energy into some other form of energy, such as heat. In contrast, titanium dioxide is a mineral sunscreen that works by blocking or deflecting UV light, rather than being absorbed by the skin. The combination of these ingredients provides broad spectrum protection, which means the skin is protected from both UVA and UVB rays.Estée Lauder Perfectionist Youth Infusing Serum Makeup also contains several different types of anti-aging ingredients. For example, this foundation includes acetyl hexapeptide-8, also known as argireline. Acetyl hexapeptide-8 is a six amino acid peptide and is a fragment of SNAP-25 (a substrate of botulinum toxin). It works by limiting the ability of neurotransmitters to activate movement in your facial muscles, for example, when forming facial expressions such as smiling or frowning. By inhibiting the nerves that cause facial muscles to contract, subtle facial expressions are limited and wrinkles are subsequently reduced. This foundation also includes caffeine, a natural stimulant and antioxidant that can help to firm the skin and may help to reduce the appearance of dark circles underneath the eyes.There are also many hydrating ingredients in the Estée Lauder Perfectionist Youth Infusing Serum Makeup, such as chlorella extract, artemia extract, glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, and more.


Estee Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Foam Review

Estee Lauder is without a doubt of the most well known luxury skincare and makeup brands on the market, and has been a huge influence in the industry as a whole. Products like the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Foam have lead the way for soft, gentle, barely there foaming cleansers that provide just as through a cleanse as you would expect from more aggressive facial washes. Unlike these more aggressive facial washes though, this foam cleanses while simultaneously respecting the skin’s delicate moisture barrier and reinforcing the skin’s natural protective processes to create healthier looking and feeling skin. The formula behind this product contains ingredients which work to remove makeup and impurities as well as damage due to environmental factors like pollution. And even then, this product rinses cleanly from the skin, leaving behind no odd or uncomfortable residue or dry, tight feeling. Instead, your skin is left feeling prepped and balanced, ready to absorb the rest of the active ingredients within your skincare routine.


Estee Lauder Swiss Performing Extract Review

If you’re looking for a high performing serum that utilizes some of the best that nature has to offer, blending with modern skincare technologies, you may want to check out the Estee Lauder Swiss Performing Extract. This classic formula from the product was originally designed to naturally and effectively restore the skin’s moisture levels while simultaneously promoting elastin and collagen production in the skin. As an almost hybrid product, this lightweight moisturizing extract combines the best of a serum and a moisturizer in one to give you a weightless texture, conditioning moisture and high powered ingredients in one product. The star of the show in this formula includes the natural Swiss Herbal Extracts along side soluble protein, which work together to support essential skin processes, resulting in more balanced, healthy and youthful looking skin with consistent use.


Estee Lauder Take It Away Review

Oil-based makeup removers are great for additional some extra nourishment, but for some skin types, they can be a bit too heavy and greasy. If this is the case for you, you may want to look out for a water-based makeup remover like the Estee Lauder Take It Away. This gentle yet effective formula removes all traces of makeup including long wear and even waterproof formulations to leave you with soft, supple, completely clean skin that’s ready for the rest of your routine. As we mentioned, this product is water-based, which can be helpful for those of you who battle with congestion often or deal with skin conditions like fungal acne and can’t handle plant oils. Because of that, we’d recommend this type of product to those of you with oily, acne-prone or sensitive skin types especially, as this product will thoroughly remove your makeup without causing any sensitivity, irritation or congestion. With that said, the one potential skin sensitivity to watch out for is fragrance. The brand does say that this product contains a refreshing citrus scent, so if you know you have a hard time with products that contain fragrance, you may want to perform a patch test before incorporating this product into your routine.


Estee Lauder Nutritious Vitality 8 Radiant Moisture Creme Review

Estée Lauder Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Moisture Creme is a daily face cream that is said to moisturize all day long, as well as help neutralize environmental aggressors so that skin looks and feels radiant, refined, hydrated, energized, nourished, and more. One of the key ingredients in this cream is Coffea arabica (coffee) seed extract, which has a high concentration of essential fatty acids, sterols, and vitamin E. Due to these constituents, coffee seed extract is a potent antioxidant that can offer protection against skin damage such as sunburn cell formation and DNA degradation. Coffee seed extract also has the ability to increase production of collagen and elastin, as well as protect against the loss of moisture. Estée Lauder Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Moisture Creme is also infused with the brand’s exclusive Pomengranate8 Complex™, which is said to activate the 8 key dimensions of healthy-looking vitality for skin. Pomegranate extract is a rich source of conjugated fatty acids, notably punicic acid, and polyphenol compounds, such as anthocyanins and ellagic acid. Ellagic acid has been shown to reduce the destruction of collagen and the inflammatory response, both major causes of wrinkles. Ellagic acid also helps to increase levels of the antioxidant glutathione in the body, which helps protect cells from free radical damage. In addition to these key ingredients, the Estée Lauder Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Moisture Creme contains many more botanical extracts that provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and nourishing effects.


Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix Review

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix is a lightweight formula that is said to dramatically reduce the look of lines, wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles. It includes a custom-designed massage applicator that you’re directed to gently roll under each eye three times and massage in a 360° circle under the eye area and above the lid. The key ingredients in the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix include dimethicone, caffeine, and sodium hyaluronate. Dimethicone is a type of silicone that can prevent water loss by forming a protective barrier on top of the skin. Like other silicones, dimethicone can also give the skin a temporary plump look by filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Caffeine cuts down on inflammation, boosts circulation, repairs DNA, soothes sun damage, and reduces redness from irritation. As a natural stimulant, caffeine causes vasoconstriction (constriction of the blood vessels) when applied to the skin, which reduces any eye puffiness or dark circles. This happens because the constricting effect pushes blood back into the main circulatory system, rather than the small vessels right underneath the skin. Sodium hyaluronate is the salt form of hyaluronic acid that has been shown to have better skin penetrating capabilities than hyaluronic acid alone. It is an effective humectant moisturizer, which means it is able to draw in moisture from the environment and help the skin retain it. Overall, the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix provides non-greasy, long-lasting hydration and can improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles.


Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Multi-Defense UV Fluid SPF 45 with 8 Anti-Oxidants Review

If you’re looking to upgrade your sunscreen routine, you may want to keep an eye out for the Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Multi-Defense UV Fluid SPF 45 with 8 Anti-Oxidants. According to the brand, this singular product provides UVA & UVB defense, pollution defense and dehydration defense throughout the day. This lightweight formula was developed in order to adequately protect your skin from both outdoor as well as indoor stressors. Throughout the day, different factors, such as sun exposure, environmental stressors, pollution and even blue light can affect your skin and even contribute to premature aging overtime. This product contains a variety of key ingredients in order to prevent this type of damage including a completely mineral-based SPF 45, as well as 8 key antioxidants. These include tiger lily extract, green tea, vitamins C & E, and resveratrol. These antioxidants help to ward off free radical damage, further preventing premature aging.


Estee Lauder! Perfectionist Pro Instant Resurfacing Peel with 9.9% AHAs + BHA Review

If you’re looking for a weekly exfoliator that helps to even out skin tone and deliver a brighter complexion, you may want to check out the Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Instant Resurfacing Peel With 9.9% AHA’s + BHA’s. Chemical exfoliators have become extremely popular in the last year, but finding the right one for you and at the right frequency, can be more difficult that you would originally expect. Using Alpha Hydroxy Acids or Beta Hydroxy Acids too frequently or too aggressively can lead to irritation or even a damaged moisture barrier. In order to avoid this, The Instant Resurfacing Peel features a light cream base with 9.9% AHA’s + BHA’s. These include citric acid, glycolic acid, and tartaric acid, all of which have been engineered to be self buffering. This helps to keep the formula at its most potent for longer, as well as at its most gentle. Additionally, since this product is only used two times a week for 10 minutes, you limit the risk of overexposure. Because of this, we’d recommend this product to those of you who are more sensitive to exfoliating agents but would like to up your exfoliation game.


Eestée Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment Review

While potent over counter retinol products used to be fairly difficult to find, several mainstream luxury brands have started to take notice of the active ingredient trend and release their own take on the anti-aging retinol serum. For example, Estee Lauder just released their Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment, which was formulated with a time-release retinol complex that slowly delivers the active ingredient over several hours. This allows the product to remain highly potent, without causing as much irritation as you could expect from a traditional retinol serum. This patented formula has also been designed with retexturizing in mind, so if you struggle with fine lines and wrinkles, clogged pores or general uneven skin texture, this could be an excellent option to consider adding into your existing skincare routine. In consumer testing, 91% of users felt that their skin was instantly softer after the first application. Additionally, in 4 weeks, 87% said their skin looked and felt more even toned.


Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Eye Creme Review

Estee Lauder is one of the most well known luxury skincare brands in the industry, with several cult favorite products in their line up. The Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Eye Creme is one of the more well known products from the range. This eye cream was developed to deliver a more lifted and firmed look to the skin around the eye area. These results are achieved in two different ways thanks to the ingredients list behind this product. For short term improvements, the Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Eye Cream contains light reflective and luminizing particles to help blur the appearance of imperfections and create a smoother, brighter looking under eye. For long term improvements, this product also contains unique ingredient blends like their Photo-Activated and Nocturnal Lift Complexes which are able to help skin boost its natural ability to produce collagen and elastin. In order to get the best results from this product, we recommend applying a small amount with the ring finger in order to avoid unnecessary pulling and tugging on the sensitive skin around the eye area.


Estee Lauder Time Zone Age Reversing Line/Wrinkle Creme Review

Estee Lauder is a giant in the beauty industry and has come out with dozens of well-loved products. One of these fan favorites is the Estee Lauder Time Zone Age Reversing Line/Wrinkle Creme. This product aims to plump and moisturize the skin by taking advantage of the presence of hyaluronic acid in the skin. But, unlike other products on the market, instead of just including hyaluronic acid in the formula, this moisturizer boosts your skins naturally ability to produce hyaluronic acid on it’s own. According to the brand, the Time Zone Age Reversing Line/Wrinkle Creme is able to boost hyaluronic acid production in the skin by 182% in just three days. The main active that is able to deliver these results is the Tri-HA Cell Signaling Complex, which is a unique blend from Estee Lauder that helps to plump the surface of the skin while simultaneously boosting the skin’s ability to produce its own hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring the in skin.


Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum Review

The Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum was designed to serve as a potent, nightly anti-aging serum. While we see many different serums that target signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, finding an anti-aging serum that treats dark spots and other forms of hyperpigmentation can be more difficult. This Dark Spot Correcting Serum uses a comprehensive correcting technology in order to improve uneven skin tone, reduce the appearance of dark spots or hyperpigmentation, blotchy skin, redness and uneven skin texture. In clinical testing, 80% of users saw a transformation in the texture and overall appearance of their skin. Additionally, in 4 weeks, 77% of women saw a reduction in hyperpigmentation, dark spots and age spots, while 86% of women felt that their skin looked refined.


Estee Lauder New Dimension Expert Liquid Tape Review

As aging reduces natural definition and contouring, is the Estee Lauder New Dimension Expert Liquid Tape the answer to getting it back?It isn’t something we’re all comfortable with, but as we age, our skin seems to have less and less life left in it. It becomes saggy and dull, two things that are tough to come to terms with. But, just because our skin has started to change, doesn’t mean it has to stay  that way, or get worse. There are effective options to stop it in its tracks.

As our faces loose definition, it becomes more important to invest in the right products to help bring it back. There are many ways to prevent the skin from visibly aging and thankfully, not all of them involve surgery.


Estee Lauder Soft Clean

Estee Lauder Soft Clean Review: Product Overview and Information Estee Lauder Soft Clean is a hydrating moisturizer that can help treat dry flaky skin on face, and maybe even prevent certain types of wrinkles. This moisturizer is one of many products offered by the American skin care and cosmetics company Estee Lauder. The company was founded in 1946 by Estee Lauder, in New York City. Back then, the company only offered a handful of products, and was still a far cry from formulating target skin care items such as Estee Lauder Soft Clean. Today, however, the company lineup has grown to include a massive array of skin care items, cosmetics, and fragrances. Estee Lauder Soft Clean is formulated to tone and hydrate the skin and is suitable for use before you apply other types of skin care products and may be a viable choice for anyone with dry to normal skin.

About Estee Lauder Soft Clean

Estee Lauder Soft Clean may be a good choice for anyone who is looking for a skin care product that hydrates and tones the skin, soothing it after daily exposure to weather and environmental toxins. It contains a number of plant extracts that fight inflammation while others deliver moisture to the skin. Estee Lauder Soft Clean’s pleasing scent is also designed to add to the soothing effects of the cream, according to the manufacturer.


Estee Lauder Hydrationist

Estee Lauder Hydrationist Reviews: Product Overview and Information An effective moisturizer is an essential part of any skin care kit, and if you are looking for a product that contains antioxidant ingredients as well as those for hydration, then you may consider adding Estee Lauder Hydrationist to your skin care kit. This product is manufactured and distributed by the American skin care and cosmetics company Estee Lauder, which was founded in New York City in 1946 by the woman of the same name, along with her husband, Joseph Lauter. Today, Estee Lauder Hydrationist is one of many products in this company's lineup, which includes large skin care, cosmetics, and fragrances collections. Estee Lauder Hydrationist is available for shipping across the U.S., and comes in formulations for both dry and combination skin; thereby providing somewhat of a superior range of choices when it comes to treating your own individual skin type.

About Estee Lauder Hydrationist

Estee Lauder Hydrationist is formulated to deliver maximum hydration to dry, aging skin. Its ingredients, which include a large number of antioxidants, are also designed to balance the skin's moisture levels to give it a more even tone.

Estee Lauder Resilience Multi-Effect Tri-Peptide Face and Neck Creme SPF 15 For Dry Skin Review

When it comes to aging, more and more research is coming out these days to confirm that sun damage indeed plays a large role in how our skin ages. If you’re looking to treat the skin around your neck and decollete, and would like to simultaneously prevent against sun damage, you may want to check out the Estee Lauder Resilience Multi-Effect Tri-Peptide Face and Neck Creme SPF 15 For Dry Skin. This product is incredibly versatile and can be used as a day time moisturizer for both the face as well as the neck area. The SPF 15 also helps to boost this products efficacy, as it helps to prevent sun damage that can be caused throughout the day . Additionally, while this product is multi-purpose, it is also a multi-effect product. First as a moisturizer, this product helps to thoroughly plump the skin, delivering a thorough amount of hydration that lasts all day. On top of these benefits, this product also contains a tripeptide complex, which works to address multiple signs of aging, as peptides help to boost collagen and elastin production which slows down as we age.


Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv

Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Overview Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv is a sub-brand of the Estée Lauder Company, and covers a variety of products, including anti aging creams, makeup, facial toners, and eye creams. If you’ve had the chance to visit the company’s website, one of the first things you’ll notice about this collection is that the products vary widely in price. For example, the Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Softening Lotion, which helps to tone skin, is priced at only $55 for over 8 ounces of product. This is a relatively low price that is easily affordable for any skin care budget. On the other end of the spectrum, the company offers products like Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Crème, an overnight moisturizing cream that retails for a price of $95 for just under two ounces. These wide differences in price make it essential for savvy consumers to carefully research Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv ingredients in different products within this sub-brand, to avoid accidentally paying a premium for the brand name, rather than paying for the effectiveness of ingredients.


Estée Lauder Idealist

Estée Lauder Idealist: Product Overview, Usage, and Side Effects If you’ve been doing research about how to shrink pores, you may have come across a treatment called Estée Lauder Idealist. This pore minimizer has been designed to correct skin tone as the skin ages and restore the natural color, while adding a finishing cosmetic sheen for smoother skin. The manufacturer claims that this product reduces redness caused by acne, age spots that are the result of sun damage, and other types of skin discoloration. Estée Lauder Idealist is one of many products sold by Estée Lauder, a New-York based skin care and cosmetics company, that was founded by the successful businesswoman of the same name in the early 1950s. Other products marketed by the firm include perfumes, skin correction, and anti-aging products like the Estée Lauder Resilience Lift. Unlike some of the other skin tone correcting items on the market, Estée Lauder Idealist does not contain hydroquinone. This ingredient has been used in a number of skin lightening products in the past but has also been linked to cancer and skin discolorations such as ochronosis, which causes the skin to turn blue.

Estée Lauder Idealist Ingredients

Unlike some of the other Estée Lauder products, such as Estée Lauder Resilience Lift, Estée Lauder Idealist contains no SPF protection. Because of this lack of UV protection, a daily sunscreen or UV moisturizer is recommended with the use of this product. The main purpose of Estée Lauder Idealist is to even out the skin tone, fade discolorations and age spots, shrink pores, and provide the skin with the kind of “glow” that comes with smooth skin. However, before using the product, it’s a good idea to see your dermatologist and read about the experiences of others in Estée Lauder Idealist reviews.


Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation In the beauty industry, it’s common knowledge that celebrated cosmetic brand Estee Lauder is one of the industry’s prized brands. A powerhouse with a range of products across all areas of the beauty space including skin care, makeup, and fragrance, anyone who has dabbled in cosmetics has tried an Estee Lauder product. So what’s the #1 makeup product of such an established brand like Estee Lauder? The Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation.


The Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation gets the “double wear” in its name from the remarkable claim that the foundation lasts a whopping 15 hours. That’s 15 hours straight of continuous coverage that won’t fade, change color, or need to be touched up during the day. The Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation assures that the unique formula is guaranteed to stay in place regardless of where the day takes you. It even goes a step further with the promise that the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation will look as fresh at the end of the day as it did when first applied in the morning.


Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum

Estée Lauder is a company of humble beginnings. Josephine Esther “Estée” Lauder, the founder, started creating her own skin care products as a teenager and selling them at a local hair salon. Today, Estée Lauder is an multinational manufacturer and marketer of prestige skincare, makeup, fragrance and hair care products, based in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. One of the brand’s best selling products is the Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum, which this review will cover in detail below.

What is it?

The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum is a lightweight, hydrating serum that is formulated with many beneficial ingredients to leave the eye area feeling soothed and refreshed. Did you know that eye serums are often more effective than eye creams? This is because the concentrations in serums are meant to penetrate the skin faster and easier than creams since they’re not diluted with heavy moisturizers. The results you can expect from using this serum include diminished appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, and dark circles around the eyes. Estée Lauder says this serum will “reignite the youthful light of your eyes.”


Estee Lauder Micro Essence

Estee Lauder has been one of the biggest names in skincare for decades. But what about their products is so unique? Today, we’re looking into their Micro Essence Lotion to see just what the fuss is all about. We’ll dive into their claims, the formula, and of course, customer experiences so you can decide for yourself whether it’s worth looking into. So without further adieu, let’s get started!

Who Is The Micro Essence Best Suited For?

This lotion combinations the properties of a milky, light moisturizer with a watery essence to help reveal glowy, radiant skin. While this product can be used by all skin types, dry and combination/normal skin types will probably see the most benefit from this type of product.

Estee Lauder Micro Essence Lotion

The Estee Lauder Micro Essence Lotion was designed to act as a light yet super hydration layer that can be applied underneath your moisturizer. This unique product combines the benefits of a lotion as well as an essence to create a hybrid skincare staple. Often, hydration is the foundation for good skin, so it’s crucial that you take steps to ensure that your skin has enough moisture and hydration to perform at it’s best. Estee Lauder’s Micro Essence does exactly that, at a micro level. The product is designed the penetrate the skin’s top layer quickly and go to work nourishing and hydrating the deeper layers of your skin as well as the surface layer. The result is smooth, plump, rebalanced skin that does not feel tight or look dull.

    Estée Lauder Anti-Aging Serum Advanced Night Repair Serum

    I am incredibly disappointed! It has absolutely no effect on the skin. Nothing. A big lie for the price of gold.

    I am nearly 49-years old and have been using Estee Lauder for over 10-years. LOVE their products and always go back to them even after trying other brands. I use Perfectionist (CP+R) Wrinkle Lifting/Firming Serum (day), Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II (night), Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronised Complex II (AMAZING!! day and night…not available in Australia any longer so have to source from overseas), Revitalising Supreme + Global Anit-ageing cell power creme (ay and night). When I can’t afford the Revitalising Supreme I use the serums and eye creme with Elizabeth Arden’s Visible Difference Day Moisturiser and Good Night Sleep Restoring Creme. As long as I use the serums underneath another mosituriser my skin is great. I also use the Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation and Compact/Pressed Powder.

    Im on the process of shopping for EL skincare and i am honestly confused what to get as the info for each line doesnt seem to be out there. Everything seems to be “anti-aging” which is i am after and has now made me confused. I am in my mid-30’s, asian, skin is free of blemishes or fine lines and i wanna keep it that way. Only concern is dryness, sensitivity (eczema) time to time and clogged pores. Please help me decide from wash, solution, creme, serum etc. Thank you.

    This foundation has caused me to break out in hives, and have very adverse effects. I would not recommend using these products if you have sensitive skin.

    I have always had a good experience with the advance night repair
    , It was then recommended by the product specialist that I start using the face wash. I have since then to date been struggling with the worst acne which I never had before ever. Not sure if it is the main contributing factor but what I do know is that my face had since the use gone to bad.

    Which eye cream works better to firm and soften wrinkles around the eyes: RESILIENCE LIFT Firming/Sculpting Eye Cream or RE-NUTRIV Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Eye Cream? I am 65.

  • Nic Original review: Aug 17, 2014. Reply

    Hi, I just started using Estee Lauder products and must admit they are just fantastic.
    After carefully reading the EL official site and depending on my skin type which is oily/comb…I went and bought the following products:
    Day wear spf 15,
    Perfectionist serum,
    Idealist serum,
    ANR II,
    Resilience eye cream and they gave me the ANR eye cream as a present.
    Anyhow, my question is ,cause I did not ask the sales rep, my mistake, seeing I have the idealist serum and the perfectionist…what goes on first..can they be put on together or should I simply place on the perfectionist to help ease the few lines and wrinkles on my forehead ….on the rest of the face I do not have any lines/wrinkles.
    If someone could be kind enough to write out the steps on how I should should place on the products am and pm…I’d honestly appreciate it.
    By the way if you could also recommend me a night cream,,day wear does not have a night cream! As I said I have an oily/com skin type and I’m 50 years of age.
    Thank you in advance for the help…..Take care.

    Hi! Time Zone is for younger skins to prevent the early effects of aging and focuses on hydration and delivery of antioxidants while Resilient is for more mature skins already showing expression lines and focuses on firming along with the other effects of Time Zone

    What is the difference between the Time Zone line and the Resilient Lift line?

    Also, if you are looking for the simple system but want all the benefits, try our revitalizing supreme (suh-prem) we call it global surpeme, it has intuitive technology, it recognizes what your skin needs, and corrects it. It takes place of the Hydrationist, Day wear, and advanced time zone. It is best paired with Advanced night repair. It is, again, for every person, unless they don’t like the feel or texture. It doesn’t cover lifting, but 90% of women noticed firmer skin. It is my favorite and i feel great when i wear it

    I an an estee lauder beauty adviser at Macy’s. It is a law in China to test all skin care products on animals. Which is sad, but that won’t change. estee lauder does not test on animals in America. Back to the products, they are amazing, enough said 🙂

    I have always been an Estee Lauder, Now I am using Estee Lauder Time Zone Eye Creme and Night Cream. I love these product and use it daily. I tried Ideelist but I did not see a result and stopped using it. I prefer a simple skin care routine as I do not have the time to apply many different products.

    I loved reading what everyone had to say about their favorite products. I have worked for Estee Lauder for 7 years now and of course I too love the product. Not just because I work for the company but because they offer an array of products for women with different concerns, ages, and skin types. Personally my top fav’s are ReNutriv Intensive Age Renewal creme (its a “super creme” – meaning it has a dual functionality of serum & moisture in one) Ultimate Radiance foundation and let’s not leave out ANR. I do want to clarify Megan’s comment about ReNutriv only catering to “older” skin, although most women who use it are mature but it is formulated in a way that it is suitable for all women. I’m 30 yrs old with a normal/combo skin and the products target my concerns. If you haven’t tried it, heard of it, scared to ask etc….I hope I’ve helped with easing you into asking for a consultation(although unfortunately it is not available at every counter you visit) but if its close to you….go check it out. Yes you spend a little more but again, they are all “super cremes” giving you the option to use a serum for extra benefit or just the creme…genious!

    First of all, I am a big fan of Estee Lauder skin care products. My skin has never looked as good as it does now and I have just starting using Estee Lauder earlier this month. Well worth the price tag. I wish I had a Sephora in my town as I love beauty products and the store that sells Estee Lauder in my town doesn’t have the entire range and most of the time it is unattended so it is a challenge getting their opinion.

    I used to swear by Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Age Renewel Cream until they brought out Resilience Lift. This is a firming product that irons out wrinkles and tightens the face. It works if you use it for long enough. And of course Estee Lauder serums are wonderful. I use both Ideelist and Perfectionist and they have been doing wonders for my face.

  • Megan Original review: Aug 02, 2013. Reply

    I use the Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Range (Including Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Eye Creme, Re-Nutri Softening Lotion and now Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Creme). You can add Advanced Night Repair and Ideelist to the range. Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv is for older sky types with wrinkles and it is more moisturizing and a thicker product than the other brands. It is full of goodness. I have to put it straight after I am out of the shower or my skin is in pain.
