Moisturizers -Estée Lauder -Swiss Performing Extract

on 11/12/2018 12:31:00 PM


Well, this is another of the very few cosmetic products that survived decades.
Launched in 1974 and has had cult followers ever since!

Although the product available today has been reformulated into a somewhat thinner, fluid, elegant lotion it is probably even better than the original that consisted mainly of petrolatum and lanolin beside the natural oils (Grape, Apricot Kernel Oil and Squalane). It used to contain 5% Collagen and several (problematic) essential oils resembling something Swiss that are now removed or replaced.
The consistency was a much thicker and substantial lotion, rather like the original Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion (another ELC's creation from 1968).

Although I like today's version more, and I think it would still be an excellent possibility for people preferring a lotion to a cream, if they would either change the fragrance to something much milder or remove it completely. It is unfortunately way too strong and disturbing.

I have uploaded one of the original ads from 1975 and the different packaging throughout the years (1975-2018).

Skincare - Face -Estée Lauder -Advanced Night Repair Whitening Recovery Complex

on 11/11/2018 1:50:00 AM


This is definitely an over-hyped item. I bought this after reading rave reviews about it. However, I fail to see any result and the texture feels thick on my face. Cannot see any difference after using it. Not worth the price

Masks -Estée Lauder -Triple Creme Skin Rehydrator

on 11/9/2018 4:26:00 PM


This is one of the best products coming out of the Estee Lauder Companies. Launched around 1986 and has been available since. Although in the past 10-15 years it as been possible to get hold of in a few countries only (Germany, France, UK and US) it is definitely worth a try if you happen to have the possibility.

I have been a devoted user back in 1991-96 and newly repurchased it after remembering its exceptionally hydrating ability.

It has a lovely creamy, easily applied consistency that is absorbed into the skin after about 10-15 minutes.

Although the actives (most of the amino acids) have been removed that were originally present in the formula, the structure of the formula (along with the fragrance) remained (basically) the same. (It still contains Soluble Fish Collagen and Proline.)
It is mainly based on oils of natural origin (surprise, surprise! remember it was created before the age of silicones): Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (which is coconut oil), Sweet Almond Oil, Isostearyl Neopentanoate and Squalane.
Contains Butylene Glycol as the main humectant and an emulsifier-blend (of organic origin) that was and still is used in pharmaceutical products that are mainly intended for patients with dermatological problems (as eczema). What it truly important is that this product has a "unique" (not so usual for cosmetic products) structure, namely it is water-in-oil-in-water (or a triple emulsion - hence the name). This in itself has the ability to maximize delivery of both the oil-phase ingredients and the water-phase ingredients. This will result in maximum and very rapid hydration and nourishment of the skin that lasts!

It used to state on the packaging that it contains 5% Spring Water and 18% Moisture regulating agent (meaning: oils).

As a previous reviewer has pointed it out, it can be left on the whole night more as a night mask, rather than tissuing it off.
It is still an amazing product that does deliver its promises! The colour is a pretty pink and the fragrance is powdery and very pleasant. There truly should still be more products like this around!

I have also uploaded the original ad from 1986.

Ingredients since 2016: Water/Aqua/Eau, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Butylene Glycol, Peg-100 Stearate, Squalane, Isopropyl Myristate, Glyceryl Stearate, Isopropyl Isostearate, Peg-40 Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Nylon-12, Oryzanol, Sodium Lactate, Sorbitan Oleate, Isohexadecane, Menthol, Sodium Pca, Polysorbate 80, Sorbitol, Acrylamides Copolymer, Proline, Soluble Collagen, Acrylamide/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer, Carbomer, Sodium Carbomer, Fragrance (Parfum), Disodium Edta, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, Caramel, Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Red 4 (CI 14700), Yellow 6 (CI 15985), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891)

Masks -Estée Lauder -Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Mask Boost [DISCONTINUED]

on 11/9/2018 3:50:00 AM


This is a somewhat thicker-appearing dense white emulsion dispersed through a tube.
It has enough slip to be applied easily to the face.
Although it is not as thick as I was expecting it to be, the wateriness dissipates quite quickly and the product will settle into a thicker more cushiony feel with a perceptible residue on the skin.

There is nothing that says that this cannot be used as a regular moisturizer - or a leave on mask, it is an emulsion (that is a bit thicker and will leave a residue, which might be welcome during colder times.)

It has glycerin in higher concentration acting as an effective humectant, and Butylene Glycol in a lower concentration (between 1-3%). Shea butter along with Squalane will effectively strengthen skin's lipid barrier. Caprylyl Methicone (a silicone oil) will provide elegance and slip.
It does contain some very good actives that might even stay stable due to the packaging.
It contains mica which might provide a "too shiny" finish on the skin for those with larger pores and imperfections. This should not have been included in my opinion. There is not much reason either for this in a product intended as a mask. However, a dryer, lifeless skin will clearly benefit from this "shine" from the pigment.

I find this mask an excellent hydrator, despite the initial "watery-feel".
The only problem I have with this is the fragrance that will linger and some might find it unpleasant.
Applying it around the eyes should be avoided. It will unfortunately migrate into the eyes and irritate them.

The product is discontinued and being replaced by a newer version as Revitalizing Supreme+ Nourishing and Hydrating Mask Boost. (It is not yet launched.)

Moisturizers -Estée Lauder -DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 15

on 11/8/2018 7:08:00 AM


I tried this a while ago, so I don't remember the specifics about how I thought it was. But I initially liked this moisturizer: the feel and the smell. However, it didn't work for me under make-up at all, which renders it useless for me, as I wear make-up on most days. The foundation will move around on the face and simply not look good with this moisturizer underneath.
