Treatments (Eye) -Estee Lauder -Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery

on 8/17/2018 4:19:00 AM


It is an exceptionally elegant gel-cream with a seemingly richer texture. It is absorbed fairly quickly in the skin after application without leaving a greasy residue. Its somewhat rigid texture makes application easier since the emulsion stays where it is put and will not migrate. This is especially important in the case of preparations intended for the eye area.

Structurally it contains mostly silicone-fluid, a silicone elastomer –these will contribute to its silky feel and natural finish on the skin, while petrolatum, the jojoba based emollients and propanediol along with sugar will provide moisture and humectancy.

The structural formula of this tried and tested emulsion has been unchanged for more or less the past 20 years with the exception of the preservative system. The formula has been used countless amounts through the brands of the EL Companies and many of these eye gels are still being produced (like Clinique All about Eyes and Origins Perfect Word Eye Cream).

The ANR Eye gel has changed packaging, name and actives since its launch in 2001, this version (launched in 2018 July) is basically the same as the Synchronized Recovery Eye Complex II (launched in 2014) with the addition of some algae based actives and the EL beloved Narcissus Tazetta Bulb Extract (also used in the Revitalizing Supreme range and in some of the Re-Nutriv moisturizers). There are some actives that have been removed.
Potassium Sorbate replaces Potassium Sulfate in the preservative system of the product.

Maybe the greatest change is the packaging that is now a substantial thick-walled glass jar that is bigger and considerably more cumbersome than its predecessors. Although is now in more harmony with the other products in the ANR-line, it might end up more troublesome when travelling. However, it is a welcoming change that access of the product has been made easier since the narrow closure of the container is now replaced with a larger opening.

I do like this eye-gel especially in the warmer months. A little goes a long way and the skin around the eyes feels hydrated and plumbed. Make-up application is quick and efficient and foundation/sunscreen will also be held in place.

Although it is advertised that it has 10 fold concentration of the ChronoluxCB™ Technology (meaning Tripeptide-32), I feel that the company could (and should) have included more state-of-the-art actives targeting cellular repair. The main active (as of the ANR Serum) is Bifida Ferment Lysate in a possibly as high concentration as 5%. (The ANR Serum has a 12.4% concentration of this active.)

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


Estee Lauder Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme SPF 15 is a good one, and I think you should try it. This cream is soft and smooth to the touch. It will make your skin feel soft and smooth as well. It is very easy to apply and rub in. It works best under the eye area, at least on me. The skin under my eye area seems to look firmer after using it. It works well on the face too. I do not think it does that much for the neck area, if you decide to use it there. It helps reduce wrinkles a little if you have them. It moisturizes my skin when my skin looks dry. Hydrating my skin, like the title of this product says. It absorbs quickly and it won’t clog your pores. If you have very oily skin, you might not want to use this. I think it is better for “normal to dry” skin. I think it will work well on “sensitive” skin too. I like to use this morning and night. It has SPF15 in it, which is good for keeping your skin safe from the sun. The texture of the cream is soft. The smell of it is faint, but smells, “Oh, so good”. The absolutely lovely container it comes in doesn’t hold much, but it seems to last awhile. The price is a bit much, but if you buy it with a “gift with purchase”; it’s deal. If you have “normal to dry” or "sensitive" skin, this product will work wonders.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup


This is the only foundation I have ever repurchased. I have owned three of these, never in my proper shade. The cool shades are too pink, the warm tones are way too orange and the neutral tones are also too pink.

On one hand, the coverage is beautiful, I have terrible acne and it helps cover it very nicely. I wear this and often feel a lot more confident. I also feel like it doesn't emphasize pores, but it's quite easy to make it look cakey. I prefer using a brush to apply it and then going over that with a sponge just to give me the most coverage.

On the other hand, this is horrible at controlling my oils. I have very oily skin and I live in an extremely hot and humid climate where sweating ensues within seconds of stepping outside of my car. This foundation actually makes me look sweaty within minutes after putting it on in an air-conditioned room. It also rubs off on everything and anything. RIP to all my white shirts' collars because they're now the colour of my foundation. It creases horribly in my smile line area but I barely have smile lines? I just do not like this foundation on myself. I kept buying it because it did the trick. I now have found better options and do not thing I will ever repurchase it,

Mascara -Estee Lauder -Sumptuous Extreme


This is such a beautiful mascara. It's light, but when you build it with more coats, it's never cakey, flakey, or smudgey. It's works super well on the lower lashes. I would definitely purchase this again when I run out.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Light SPF10

on 8/14/2018 7:45:00 AM


For the price of this foundation, I was slightly disappointed. The lightest shade did not suit my very pale skin and made me look orange and a bit tacky. The formula itself is nicely moisturising and glides on well, but I find that after a few hours it settles and clings onto dry patches, and this isn't very flattering. However, it does last a long time on the face and feels nice and light on. Buy it if you have normal or oily, medium-dark to medium-light skin.
