Moisturizers -Estee Lauder -Verite Moisture Relief Cream

A phenomenal product and one-of-a-kind.

I bought this out of desperation when my Clinique pep start hydrorush moisturiser gave me a terrible allergic reaction and I realised it was actually drying my skin out. I had already started using Estee Lauder's Perfectly Clean Triple Action foaming cleanser and been wowed by its gentleness and effectiveness. That was my first introduction to the brand. Thanks to the reviewers of MUA, I therefore bit a very big bullet and forked out £47 at my nearest Boots for this pot of wonders with all my fingers crossed that it would deliver. And it did.

I have moderate-severe acne, quite severe rosacea, and hyper-sensitive skin which is easily inflamed and irritated. My skin also easily becomes dehydrated and breaks out from oils and butters (including the dreaded capric/caprylic triglyceride found in so many sensitive-skin products now), so I try to stay with 'fat-free' skin products but there was always a compromise to be made - not moisturising enough, mild breakouts, weird textures on my skin, didn't play with other products, made my skin hot etc. But my skin was so bad after Clinique that none of my regular products were helping.

I was cautious with Verite because it has petroleum, and having used Vaseline before and broken out, I was waiting for the breakout to hit. The same with squalane (I'd had terrible acne from The Ordinary's squalane). But, far from it, my skin has never been so immaculate!

Upon initial application, I couldn't believe my skin, which was in such a raw and horrendous state, was not stinging or burning. I usually expect that for the first few minutes even using very 'safe' products, simply because my skin is in such bad condition, but Verite did nothing more than offer what my skin craved - genuine moisture (not just oil), a cooling and soothing effect, and it seemed to 'seal' itself onto my skin like a protective barrier over the rawness yet still allowing my skin to breathe. I couldn't feel the product at all, just its wonderful effects.

It has been about a month now, and not only has my skin rapidly repaired itself because of Verite, but in combo with the Perfectly Clean Triple cleanser, my acne has truly disappeared - a feat I have never managed possible. I remain amazed that I can put this on my face in huge amounts when needed and I never break out. I have always had to apply moisturisers with an almost scientific level of measuring and rubbing in to minimise breakouts from failing to completely rub it in or apply too much but never with this. I can even use this on sunburn with no irritation whatsoever.

As others have mentioned, this was not on display at my local Estee Lauder counter at Boots, so you have to ask for it, but it is still stocked and does not seem to be discontinued anymore, which is truly heartening. Boots online can tell you which branches stock it.

I still don't really understand why this works so beautifully, but it does. It has no problems with my makeup or sunscreen. Yes it is very expensive, and yes it could be packaged better, but the actual contents are incredible and is very literally rescuing and repairing my skin from decades of damage. I cannot praise this enough - my HG moisturiser for life.



Cleansers -Estee Lauder -Perfectly Clean Triple-Action Cleanser/Toner/Makeup Remover

I truly appreciate the gentleness and sophisticated ingredients in this cleanser, having hyper-sensitive, acne-prone and roseacea skin. It has never broken me out, and is so soothing, probably due to the high amount of witch hazel, Zinc and Lady's Thistle, and low-level surfactants. I've never seen an ingredient list like this before and that was my initially why I purchased it, despite (a) being wary that foaming cleansers can be harsh or drying and (b) this containing a synthetic oil (hydrogenated castor oil).

I wear medium-full mineral makeup and this takes off everything, leaving my skin incredibly calm and smooth afterwards. It needs no rubbing or washcloth, which is perfect for those of us suffering with raw, irritated skin. My pores are always left clear and have looked increasingly refined rather than puckered.

As a previous reviewer mentioned, it works best if you apply it to wet hands and a dry face. This activates an oiliness within the foam and it is this element which seems to do the 'heavy lifting' of makeup removal. I was initially concerned because oil cleansing has always broken me out terribly, but it rinses clean and my breakouts stopped and cleared within the first day or so of switching to this. I have truly never had a cleanser this gentle or effective before that has not broken me out, caused an allergic reaction, or dried my skin out. That is why I have given this a 5 star rating - if you have fairly robust skin, this may feel like a very 'meh' cleanser, but if, like me, you have incredibly difficult, fragile skin, this is very worth considering and I highly recommend it.

The only down sides are the price (RRP £26 for 150ml) and that using it morning and evening I found a bottle didn't last more than about 2 months, but I often like to double-cleanse with it in the evening after makeup removal - more out of paranoia than a problem with the makeup removal. I've never used it on waterproof makeup, so I can't comment on its effectiveness there, but I can use it to remove my mascara with no burning or stinging or cloudiness around my eyes (though don't get it in your eyes!). I am surprised this cleanser has not received more or higher reviews on MUA as it is consistently rated very highly by customers elsewhere on the internet.

I think this is my HG cleanser and I never thought I would be able to say that about any product.

Big disappointment. Smells nothing like the lotion or scrub or anything from the original line. If you want the original smell just get the body spray in the clear bottle.


Primer/ Corrector -Estee Lauder -Illuminating Perfecting Primer

I recieved three of Estee Lauder primerss for free: Soother, luminating, and mattifer. I tried soother and luminating on different sides of face for 3 days. I have large pores and was trying these to see which helped with pores. This primer actually makes my pores appear even larger, the wrinkles under my eyes worse. Then I considered if my face was luminous, it was not. To be honest with you, Loreal Magic lumi primer is more luminous and way cheaper.

Smoother is awesome though, I will buy full size of that.

Excellent product delivering great coverage and fantastic staying power. No smudging, redness seeping through or discomfort. Simply loving it. The color "Sand" is perfect for my NC20-25 skin.
