I was on the website and saw someone reviewing the cream from this verite line & I had a sudden flashback of me buying & using this expensive spray toner from Estée Lauder! I pretty just bought it for the free gift w p ! LOL! Bc I'm normally a Clinique user &,prefers Clinique's totally fragrance free skincare products! But every now & then I might try something new from Estée Lauder & I believe I just bought this to try for a pick my up ! From what I remember was this a spray toner in a bottle which had a fine mist & was very slightly hydrating and definitely had a strong rose 🌹 scent! I remember keeping it cold in the refrigerator @ work to refresh myself whenever I got stressed out during work! ! ! LOL! It was a ok product but I didn't repurchase



Moisturizers -Estée Lauder -Advanced Time Zone Night Age Reversing Line/Wrinkle Creme

on 11/21/2018 12:44:00 PM

It is a somewhat dense (yet not too rich) moisturizer that has a well-rounded formula that relies on lanolin and petrolatum replacements that do the job of hydrating the skin just as beautifully providing lasting hydration. It is combined with other emollients and an excellent and very mild bioemulgoid (that functions as emulsifier and emollient) and loads of outstanding actives.

Unfortunately ELC have reformulated it into a lighter, less substantial nourisher (since its re-launche in 2012) what used to be much more substantial and a richer product. It is unfortunately very disappointing for people that have dry skin and do need all the extra care and nourishment they can get.

This winning formula is the exact same as the ELC uses for the Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme for Dry skin too! (Here they combine the structural formula with other actives and a different fragrance.) (It is also thinned out through the years though, and more watery than Time Zone Night.)

It contains fragrance but not too overpowering.

Moisturizers -Estée Lauder -Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme

There are only the Dry skin formula and the formula intended for combination skin is left of the line that once has contained the moisturizers with SPF 15, the lotion (and the one with the SPF) and the Hydrationist Serum.

Unfortunately ELC have reformulated the two remaining products into a much more watery substances of something that used to be much more substantial and richer (at least the formula for dry skin). It is unfortunately very disappointing for people with dry skin that do need all the extra care and nourishment they can get.

The formula (at least as it used to be) is a well-rounded one that relies on lanolin and petrolatum replacements that do the job of hydrating the skin just as beautifully providing lasting hydration. It is combined with other emollients and an excellent and very mild bioemulgoid (that functions as emulsifier and emollient) and loads of outstanding actives.

This winning formula is the exact same as the ELC uses for the Advanced Time Zone Night Creme too! (Here they combine the structural formula with other actives and a different fragrance.) (It is also thinned out through the years though, yet richer than the Hydrationist's last formula from 2017 and onward.)

Sadly I cannot recommend this product due to the thinner more watery feel on the skin and the very strong, lasting fragrance.

Moisturizers -Estée Lauder -Verite Moisture Relief Cream [DISCONTINUED]

on 11/21/2018 5:05:00 AM

The formula has unfortunately simplified through the years since its launch in 1995.
While it was a dense cream that had a perceptive feel on the skin became a much thinner (and less elegant) watery thing that absorbs quickly but does not provide hydration, nor protection for a rather thin lipid barrier that sensitive skin usually has.

Its oil-phase used to be composed mainly of Cyclomethicone, Shea Butter, it became Dimethicone and (a smaller amount) Petrolatum. The preservative system became, basically non-existent and contains Hexylene Glycol (not approved as preservative and an irritant in higher concentrations as it is used here). Several of the precious actives have also dissipated making it into a mediocre product.

The best is that it has remained fragrance-free.

2017 ingredients: Water (Aqua Purificata) Purified; Butylene Glycol; Dimethicone; Hexylene Glycol; Petrolatum; Cetearyl Alcohol; Squalane; Pentylene Glycol; Sucrose; Glycerin; Isostearyl; Neopentanoate; Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract; Centella Asiatica (Hydrocotyl) Extract; Sodium Hyaluronate; Ceramide 3; Cholesterol; Caffeine; Cetearyl Glucoside; Hydrogenated Lecithin; Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria); Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate; Stearic Acid; Carbomer; Sodium Citrate; Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891)

Original 1995: Water, Cyclomethicone, Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Cetearyl Glucoside, Squalane, Butylene Glycol, Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Sucrose, Glycerin, Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Linoleic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Malvaceae Extract (Hibiscus Rosa-Sinensis), Sea Whip Extract, Hydrocotyl Asiatica Extract (Centella Asiatica), Oat Extract (Avena Sativa), Cholesterol, Caffeine, Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia), Carnosic Acid, Carnosol Extract, TEA Carbomer, Sodium Chloride, Stearic Acid, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Dehydroaceate, Phenoxyethanol

Cleansers -Estée Lauder -Verite LightLotion Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

on 11/21/2018 4:58:00 AM

foto

A very light milk that unfortunately does not remove make-up but can be added to your cleansing routine as a second step after the successful removal of make-up (with another cleanser) for providing additional hydration and minimize the drying effect of surfactants (from another cleanser).

The formula is simple and contains the minimum of ingredients. These ingredients can easily integrate into the lipid barrier without disrupting its function. For sensitive skin this is a big welcome!

The formula has somewhat simplified compared to the original Verité Light Lotion Cleanser when it still contained added fragrance and the additional safflower oil.
It has a hypoallergenic formula that is suitable even for the most sensitive skin types.
It can also double as a light lotion for a less dry skin type that can be left on the face as a moisturizer due to the extremely mild emulsifier (sugar esters) and the lack of surfactants. (This is also the reason for not performing well as a cleanser.)

Those who are prone to breakouts, should sample the product before purchase. Sugar Esters and natural oils (as olive and safflower oils) can cause acne (cystic type in some individuals).

The product is duplicated under another EL brand La Mer The Cleansing Lotion and Re-Nutriv
Hydrating Creme Cleanser. Both have added fragrance.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Caprylic/Capric, Triglyceride, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit, Oil, Pentylene Glycol, Phenyl Trimethicone, Sucrose Stearate, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Cholesterol, Chamomilla, Recutita (Matricaria), Ceramide 3, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile), Tromethamine, Ppg-20 Methyl Glucose Ether, Isostearic Acid, Carbomer, Sodium Citrate
