This eye cream was launched in 1998 and has been further modified throughout the years under the names "Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lifting Eye Creme! in 2006 to Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Eye Creme then Re-Nutriv Intensive Age-Renewal Eye Creme. (The last two products do have a thinner consistency than the original!)

The new Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Eye Creme Rich (launched 2017 December) is the closest resemblance to the original Intensive Lifting Eye Cream and the Ultimate Lifting Eye Creme. The new Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Eye Creme Rich has the same structural formula of the original along with the richness, consistency and pearly finish.
Glad that EL Co. finally realized that the products they have developed before might be toay's solution too!

Thought this was great at first.
Sticks to your skin like cement, looks really natural if applied in sections using your fingers.
Colours lean to the cooler tone, all very pink.
Then after a few weeks it had given me cysts!
Disaster, I hate it.

Cleansers -Estee Lauder -Soft Clean Tender Creme Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

Has the most terrible fragrance-- triggered migraine and nausea for hours every time I used this-- received as a gift but ended up throwing it away because of how toxic it was. Glad it's discontinued-- cosmetic companies really should worry more about the ingredients they put in their products. I'll for sure never buy anything from Estee Lauder until the company does a better job about producing clean and safe cosmetics.

This eye cream has the classic Estee Lauder eye cream formula that the company have used since the mid 90s in several brands.
This is an excellent dense formula that is based on butters, thickeners and very mild emollients along with a film-former that will keep the formula where you put it. It will not migrate into the eyes.

It contains light reflecting particles that will leave a noticeable lightened area around the eyes.
The product is 100% fragrance-free.

It is a new addition (end of 2017) to the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth line.

This eye cream has the classic Estee Lauder eye cream formula that the company have used since the mid 90s in several brands.
This is an excellent dense formula that is based on butters, thickeners and very mild emollients along with a film-former that will keep the formula where you put it. It will not migrate into the eyes.

It contains light reflecting particles that will leave a noticeable lightened area around the eyes.
The product is 100% fragrance-free.
Price is horrific and definitely not worth it! You can find the same structural formula among others in the Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Replenishing Eye Creme, Time Zone Eye Cream, the Resilience Eye Cream and the Clinique All About Eyes Rich. All these eye creams cost a fraction of the price, fragrance-free and are also packed with beneficial actives.

PS: This is an excellent replacement for the long discontinued (but highly sought after and missed by many) Re-Nutriv Intensive Lifting Eye Cream (launched in 1998) and Ultimate Lifting Eye Cream (launched in 2006) since the structural formula of the product is identical to the new edition of Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Eye Crème Rich (launched in 2017).

Ingredients: Water\Aqua\Eau, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Polyethylene, Butylene Glycol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Esters, Polybutene, Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Dimethicone, PEG-100 Stearate, Pentylene Glycol, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Narcissus Tazetta Bulb Extract, Fuscoporia Obliqua Extract, Artemia Extract, Saccharomyces Lysate Extract, Cordyceps Sinensis Extract, Laminaria Ochroleuca Extract, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Ascophyllum Nodosum Extract, Euphrasia Officinalis (Euphrasia) Extract, Hordeum Vulgare (Barley) Extract\Extrait D'Orge, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Pearl Powder, Sorbitol, Swertia Chirata Extract, Gelidiella Acerosa Extract, Whey Protein\Lactis Protein\Proteine Du Petit-Lait, Hypnea Musciformis (Algae) Extract, Algae Extract, Asparagopsis Armata Extract, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Ergothioneine, Yeast Extract\Faex\Extrait De Levure, Gold, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Caffeine, Cholesterol, Linoleic Acid, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Protein, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Cetearyl Glucoside, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol Dicaprate, Trehalose, Acetyl Glucosamine, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seedcake, Caprylyl Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Lauryl PCA, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Cyclodextrin, Sodium Hydroxide, Bioflavonoids, Decarboxy Carnosine HCL, Ethylbisiminomethylguaiacol Manganese Chloride, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Cellulose, Lecithin, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Disodium EDTA, BHT, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Mica, Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)

Treatments (Eye) -Estee Lauder -Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Eye Crème

This is a fluid light pink cream that is very light and a tad runny at application. It is absorbed quickly by the skin around the eyes however the lack of waxes and/or film-former in the formula make it that it gets into the eyes. It is really a pity because the formula is made in such a way that it does hydrate and provide lasting hydration.
It also contains some excellent and very mild emollients along with a wide array of actives.

I think the product is too runny and too light as an eye cream but it would be an excellent facial moisturizer that the EL Co. should consider producing.
However as an eye cream it should be packaged in a pump for easier application as long as the formula is kept so fluid.
Ideally, they should add more wax to have a denser formula that also stays in-place around the eyes.

The product is 100% fragrance-free. It contains light reflecting pigments that create a flattering and subtle illuminating glow around the eyes. It is much more subtle than that of the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Eye Crème Rich. (This is also a denser cream.)
Price is horrific and definitely not worth it!

Ingredients: Water\Aqua\Eau, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric/Myristic/Stearic Triglyceride, Nylon-12, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Isononyl Isononanoate, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Magnesium Sulfate, Euphrasia Officinalis (Euphrasia) Extract, Ascophyllum Nodosum Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Narcissus Tazetta Bulb Extract, Asparagopsis Armata Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Fuscoporia Obliqua Extract, Laminaria Ochroleuca Extract, Cordyceps Sinensis Extract, Hordeum Vulgare (Barley) Extract\Extrait D'orge, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Flower Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Gellidiela Acerosa (Algae) Extract, Whey Protein\Lactis Protein\Proteine Du Petit-Lait, Hypnea Musciformis (Algae) Extract, Bioflavonoids, Caffeine, Cholesterol, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Saccharomyces Lysate Extract, Sorbitol, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Protein, Pearl Powder, Artemia Extract, Swertia Chirata Extract, Decarboxy Carnosine Hcl, Linoleic Acid, Ergothioneine, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol Dicaprate, Algae Extract, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Gold, Sucrose, Trehalose, Acetyl Glucosamine, Propylene Glycol Diethylhexanoate, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seedcake, Cyclohexasiloxane, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Lauryl PCA, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sodium Hyaluronate, Cyclodextrin, Polysilicone-11, Yeast Extract\Faex\Extrait De Levure, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Gelidium Cartilagineum Extract, Citric Acid, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Cellulose, Caprylyl Glycol, Lecithin, Sodium Benzoate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ethylbisiminomethylguaiacol Manganese Chloride, Silica, Alumina, Hexylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, BHT, Phenoxyethanol, Mica, Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891) continued >>


Moisturizers -Estee Lauder -Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Crème

on 3/10/2018 2:19:00 PM

It is a light pink dense cream that breaks into a refreshing lighter moisturizer on application and settles into an elegant finish.

I did not find it moisturizing enough in the winter, but believe that it might be a good choice for warmer weather.

Price is very steep considering that even La Mer moisturizers are lower priced. I don't find the fragrance particularly pleasant either.

It is basically a mixture of butters, thickeners and some silicone oils along with a silicone elastomer (in a very low amount), a wide range of actives and the so called Floralixir Dew that is "The modern alchemy of Floralixir™ Dew begins with two precious flowers,
known for their ability to thrive in extreme environments. From the bitter cold of the world's tallest mountain range comes Himalayan Gentian. This flower grows at very high altitudes where UV rays are especially damaging. Through our careful extraction process, we concentrate its precious energies. Brasil Everlasting opens its petals in the desolate Serra do Espinhaço region.There it flourishes despite a very dry winter, poor sandy soil and intense UV exposure. Our Brasil Everlasting is gently handpicked, exclusively for Re-Nutriv."

I believe that one can find other excellent moisturizers from the EL Co. for a fraction of the price!

Ingredients: Water\Aqua\Eau, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Caprylic/Capric/Myristic/Stearic Triglyceride, Methyl Trimethicone, Di-C12-15 Alkyl Fumarate, Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Steareth-2, Stearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Pentylene Glycol, Glycerin, Steareth-21, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Sterols, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Narcissus Tazetta Bulb Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Ergothioneine, Artemia Extract, Saccharomyces Lysate Extract, Fuscoporia Obliqua Extract, Gellidiela Acerosa (Algae) Extract, Swertia Chirata Extract, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Cordyceps Sinensis Extract, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Protein, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Cholesterol, Caffeine, Linoleic Acid, Hypnea Musciformis (Algae) Extract, Whey Protein\Lactis Protein\Proteine Du Petit-Lait, Hordeum Vulgare (Barley) Extract\Extrait D'orge, Pearl Powder, Bioflavonoids, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Propylene Glycol Dicaprate, Algae Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Trehalose, Acetyl Glucosamine, Gold, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seedcake, Decarboxy Carnosine Hcl, Yeast Extract\Faex\Extrait De Levure, Polysilicone-11, Isohexadecane, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Hydroxide, Acrylamide/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer, Carbomer, Polysorbate 80, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Lecithin, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Cellulose, Fragrance (Parfum), Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Disodium Edta, Bht, Phenoxyethanol, Yellow 5 (Ci 19140), Red 33 (Ci 17200) continued >>


Treatments (Face) -Estee Lauder -Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Floralixir Dew Regenerating Water

on 3/10/2018 1:30:00 PM

foto

It is a watery essence containing the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Floralixir Dew Regenerating Water.
This is what the Estee Lauder webite says about this water: "The flower extracts have potent sustaining and strengthening benefits
in their own right. But Re-Nutriv scientists imprint them into our proprietary mineral-enriched Ionic Water, with remarkable visible youth-regenerating results. Far more than simply adding benefits, testing shows the efficacy of the flower extracts is significantly multiplied. This amplification is driven by our patented technology. The Ionic Water is created using electrogravitational fields and advanced chemistry. A further infusion of minerals yields a liquid that mimics the molecular composition of natural dew: Concentrated with essential micronutrients. Intensively nourishing."

While this essence/treatment lotion is not a bad product, it is absolutely no match for The Treatment Lotion from La Mer. It is half the size, the formula is not as refined and the fragrance is way too much!

Ingredients: Water\Aqua\Eau, PEG-75, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Polysorbate 20, Narcissus Tazetta Bulb Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Swertia Chirata Extract, Hydrolyzed Rice Extract, Saccharomyces Lysate Extract, Whey Protein\Lactis Protein\Proteine Du Petit-Lait, Sigesbeckia Orientalis (St. Paul's Wort) Extract, Algae Extract, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Acetyl Glucosamine, Caprylyl Glycol, Caffeine, Gold, Pearl Powder, Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Protein, Sodium Hyaluronate, Bioflavonoids, Sodium Lactate, Ergothioneine, Bis-PEG-12 Dimethicone, Hydrolyzed Beta-Glucan, Artemia Extract, Sodium PCA, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Tromethamine, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Hexylene Glycol, Fragrance (Parfum), Carbomer, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Red 33 (CI 17200), Yellow 5 (CI 19140) continued >>


Scrubs -Estee Lauder -Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Instant Refinishing Facial

on 3/10/2018 5:52:00 AM

This is a grossly over priced, ineffective scrub. The particle concentration is very low and the particles are too jagged, so I felt it scratched more than it exfoliated. The rest is just cream suspension which doesn't do much if you just wash it off since there are no other active ingredients. Honesty, St ives is more effective. I got this as a pass me on and I have already passed it on. I do not recommend and pls try before you buy. Fragrance is too strong as well.

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

on 3/9/2018 2:41:00 PM

foto

Great serum, already bought a couple of times. I have dry eczema sensitive skin it works great, keeps my skin really soft/clear and moisturized when layered underneath a cream. The Estee Lauder SA told me you can also pat a little over your make-up with your finger tips at the end of a day and it will refresh your make-up. When I stop using this I always think that I need it again it's when you stop using the product you start to see what it does for your skin. I think the price is "to" high and this is on the expensive side, but I usually buy this when there is a discount to treat myself.


Moisturizers -Estee Lauder -DayWear Matte Oil-Control Anti-Oxidant Moisture Gel Creme

on 3/8/2018 9:09:00 AM

foto

This is an extremely elegant light blue opaque cream gel with a natural satin-matte finish that last for many hours.

It is based on a volatile hydrocarbon oil and silicone oil and has a silicone elastomer added for further shine control. However, the real oil-absorption comes from Polypropylene wax. This also enables a pretty finish.
It has a very light feel and is lightly hydrating and after application it will absorb fully without leaving any oily residue on the skin.
Excellent for the summer or for warmer climate. Or for oilier skin type in the colder weather under make-up or as a night cream.

It has some very good anti-oxidants (EGT, EUK-134, Thermus Thermophillus Ferment and oil soluble vitamin C to name the most impressive ones) and anti-aging actives (Narcissus Tazetta Bulb Extract) too. Although, (even the combined) the concentration might unfortunately be very low.

The only negative I find with this product is the somewhat strong fragrance that does linger longer than necessary.

Ingredients: Water\Aqua\Eau, Isododecane, Butylene Glycol, Polypropylene, Dimethicone, Bis-Peg-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Glycerin, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Laminaria Saccharina Extract, Narcissus Tazetta Bulb Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Trehalose, Ergothioneine, Algae Extract, Lactobacillus Ferment, Caffeine, Acetyl Glucosamine, Hordeum Vulgare (Barley) Extract\Extrait D'orge, Thermus Thermophillus Ferment, Polysilicone-11, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Propylene Glycol Dicaprate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seedcake, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ethylbisiminomethylguaiacol Manganese Chloride, Lecithin, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Laureth-23, Tromethamine, Citric Acid, Cyclodextrin, Caprylyl Glycol, Laureth-4, Oleth-10, Sodium PCA, Silica, Fragrance (Parfum), Hexylene Glycol, Disodium Edta, BHT, Phenoxyethanol, Linalool, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Benzyl Salicylate, Blue 1 (CI 42090) continued >>


Concealers -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Custom Coverage Correcting Duo

on 3/4/2018 6:27:00 PM

foto

Purchased this doubled-end corrector at my last encounter at the EL counter - yellow for dark circles and pink at the top of the cheek. The combo makes me look more rested than an afternoon nap! The brush end is suggested to be applied first and the sponge side with a more hydrating formulation last, but I prefer the opposite for a more natural finish. The shades on each end are very similar, but I detect more "sparkle" in the sponge formulation. Unlike my other EL concealers, I also prefer this under my foundation. The packaging is convenient, but prefer a tube without an applicator due to contamination risks. Who am I kidding - I will have them long before that could happen.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup SPF 25

on 3/4/2018 4:36:00 AM

Perfectionist make-up is not working for me! I had high expectations for this product but it's not making me feel or look any better, to the contrary, it makes me look old. I examined my face with a highly magnified mirror before make-up and after.
1. BEFORE this make-up:
after cleansing and moisture, my pores were a bit visible, but I recognized myself to the age I am, no sagging or skin contortions.
2. AFTER I put this onto my face:
I could feel it on my skin, a sensation like something there. I looked in my magnified mirror, I didn't look the same, it was like looking at an older different person, my pores looked more pronounced, my face had some twisted skin contortions I'd never been aware of before.
• Granted the make-up feels smooth and silky the touch, but my face is combination skin, and it did not work for the areas of cheekbones downwards on me. I have such a bother finding a good make-up for myself, this one is not for me.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

foto

I am very fair with pink undertones and have trouble getting a good color match in foundations. I wear Cool Bone and I am very pleased with the color, it does not oxidize at all on my skin. I generally reach for tinted moisturizers/medium coverage foundations. I like Double Wear for special events or extremely long days. I find it too heavy for everyday use. It is extremely important to double cleanse as the foundation tends to settle into the skin. Sometimes I thin it out with moisturizer for a more medium coverage. It controls oily exceptionally well, especially if a primer/setting spray is used. I HATE the packaging, I wish there was a pump included. I will repurchase when I run out.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

This is my 2nd try. I've used mineral powders in the past but need something with more coverage and staying power since getting more "mature" skin. I've also become a bit drier in areas through I do have some break through shiny areas come through as the day progresses on my T Zone area. My first effort with using double wear was frustrating. I had trouble getting anyone to match me right Either too orange or pink) and I used either my fingers or a beauty blender to apply. I found that the product would crease up by my nose and chin and just did not have a natural look at all but looked more like a mask. This time I found the closest shade I could that match with golden glow compact powder by Jane Irdale, since it was a good match. I went with the shade Tawny. This time I appied it with a foundation brush, buffing it in lightly and just building on the redness by my nose and under my eyes. Looks MUCH better with a brush on me. I do not have to use much product at all. Covers my reddness great! Pores are unseen and it didn't crease up the light lines I have under my eyes. Also didn't show up any dry spots and I LOVE the finish, looks very natural without looking or feeling caked on. I don't need a concealer or a finishing powder when I use this though I do throw on a tiny bit of bye bye pores powder on my T Zone keeps me fresh all day long. Also the staying time with this is incredible! And no transferring! I feel that it does oxidize little on me but comes to a great match that melts into my skin that doesn't become orange or a funky pink. Only down side is having to really make sure I cleanse my face well at night to remove it but it's the price you pay for a product that stays on during the day, and of course the cost.
