Treatments (Face) -Estée Lauder -Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher

on 9/24/2018 4:26:00 AM


It is a lovely serum that doubles as a primer too.

It has a silky-matte finish that has some oil controlling function too.

The formula is silicone-in-water and based on two silicone oils and a silicone elastomer. The silicone elastomer is the culprit when it comes to clogged pores for some. It can unfortunately also trigger cystic acne and one should be careful if prone to acne.
Unfortunately the product is sold for all skin types. While all skin types will appreciate its finish, oilier skin types will incline to like it the most.

It does contain an impressive array of actives (anti-oxidants and cell communicating ingredients) and also some excellent mild exfoliating agents that also have documented effect (Acetyl Glucosamine, Sodium Lactobionate).
Clinique has a corresponding formula that is marketed under Turnaround Serum but this serum is emulsified by a silicone emulsifier (or rather a mix of two), while the Idealist (being an older formulation) is emulsified and stabilized by two oil-in-water polymeric emulsifiers.

It contains Methyldihydrojasmonate that is used as the fragrance material.

Treatments (Face) -Estée Lauder -Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

on 9/23/2018 3:34:00 PM


I have never wanted to spend a lot of money on fancy department store skincare products. However, I received a sample of this product and my mind has been changed. I am 38 years old and I am beginning to have fine lines and dryness around my eye areas. I have begun to use an additional product (beyond my all over facial moisturizer) to treat this area. This is one of the better products I have used. The light serum texture instantly absorbs into the skin and leaves the area feeling very smooth and moisturized. I have extremely sensitive skin, and have experienced ZERO redness or discomfort from this product. In order to be truly effective, I believe these type of products need to be used on a DAILY basis, and this gentleness of this product certainly allows that. What precludes this product from getting a 5 rating from me is of course the price. The initial cost of this product is high and one would have to make a trip to the mall in order to purchase it, However, because one only needs to use a small amount to the product, once you overcome the initial expense, it does pay for itself.

Ease of Application
The applicator allots the perfect dose for each application

As someone with sensitive skin, I enjoy the barely there scent of the product «

Moisturizers -Estée Lauder -Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 15


Estee Lauder's Hydrationist collection is simply beautiful. This cream which I have used all winter and still now heading into spring is just a pleasure to use. There are several products in this line up, some have been discontinued over the years, there is the Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme which comes in a dry skin formula or Normal to combination skin formula. There is also a version available in pump form one with and the other without sunscreen.

Beautiful textures, beautiful light non overpowering fragrances, the creams and lotions sink in beautifully delivering their generous ingredients of anti oxidants, anti irritants, plant extract and botanicals. The cream spreads easily and does not at all feel heavy or greasy, it provides just the right amount of moisture to soothe dry skin and condition it beautifully. I have tried all textures including the lotion on hot summer days when you dont want anything too heavy. Take the required amount of cream with a disposable cotton tip not your fingers, your cream will last longer that way and won't spoil.

I have seen soothing and nourishing qualities from the use of this collection I highly recommend it.

Well done Estee Lauder I can always count on you for quality and glamour.

Treatments (Eye) -Estée Lauder -Re-Nutriv Intensive Lifting Eye Cream

on 9/18/2018 12:28:00 PM


This white eye cream is sufficiently moisturizing for my dry skin and works very well to lift the slight droop I have at the corners of my eyes. The cream is thick and lasts me three months, using it twice a day over Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum. The first two ingredients are water and Shea butter.

Liquid -Estée Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

on 9/18/2018 11:34:00 AM


I really like this one. For a gal with very oily skin with acne scars, I struggle when it comes to finding a good foundation that won't break down on my T-zones during the day. This one is beautiful when I want a nice coverage and flawless skin. I barely need to spot conceal when I wear this foundation. I also like that it's long wearing, Stay-In-Place for real! Sometimes I don't even powder, and it helps not to look too cakey, but I see the oil comes through after a few hours, but it looks more dewy than fried-chicken-oily.
It doesn't break me out at all, but it does accentuate my pores near my nose a little, and although that doesn't bother me much (because every foundation does that on me), siliconated primer helped with the problem. I would like very much if this foundation came with a pump, but I can survive, lol.

Pros: long-wearing, good coverage, beautiful finish, doesn't accentuate texture
Cons: no pump, doesn't blur larger pores
