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

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

This eye cream is sufficiently moisturizing for my dry skin and works very well to lift the slight droop I have at the corner of my eyes. The cream is thick and lasts me two 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

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.

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


Foundations -Estée Lauder -Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup For Face & Body SPF 15

I have issues with facial hair and stubble. I stopped into Macy's one evening looking for anything that might help mask the illusion of darkened skin around my mouth/chin. After this product was suggested and applied to my face, I was convinced I should at least try it. It's very heavy coverage, as you might expect. It does a great job of hiding any type of discoloration and actually helps a good bit with the appearance of my chin. I use Este Lauder's Double Wear foundation first and then a small amount of this wherever I need the extra coverage. It spreads evenly with the foundation brush I purchased that evening. A little goes a long way, especially with the brush. I was told by the Esthetician that my skin was dry and soaking in the make-up, so at her suggestion, I've started using a heavier moisturizer. I've noticed that this make-up "settles" in my large pores, making them very noticeable. So I try to apply my foundations immediately after using a facial cream, and I finish with a powder, which helps soften the "settling". The foundations, combined, definitely rub off on anything that touches my face, which is taking a while to get used to. It's quite annoying but still worth it to me. My skin is typically so oily that I've used oil blotting papers every afternoon for years now, but something about the changes I've made (maybe richer moisturizer or maybe new foundation) has reduced that oiliness. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a heavy foundation.

Masks -Estée Lauder -Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask

foto

I managed to get 2 pieces of these on promotion and thought 'why not treat myself'. These sheet masks are very hydrating, although not as much as La Mer's Hydrating Facial which is extremely rich. I used this for 30 minutes and then massaged in what remained on skin and also had enough left over for arms, hands and even my lower legs - which are always drier than the rest of me. Although I still needed to moisturize my legs after 24 hours, my face didn't require a night moisturizer or even a day moisturizer the following morning which is testament to how hydrating it is. No breakouts either which is a bonus.

Also gave me a nice glow, almost on par with what I used to get with SKII's old whitening mask before it was discontinued. I do find the fit a bit fiddly and usually with sheet masks I end up cutting the slit between the eye and mouth so that it adheres to my nose and inner cheeks properly, and this was no exception. But all in all quite happy with the results using these.

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

foto

I first used this when back in my early twenties and ANR was still the original formula - before it underwent god knows how many reincarnations. Back then I used to find it would help a little with the odd pimple/blemish mark that would appear every few weeks but did little else for my skin concerns. I was primarily using it in the hopes of some sort of defense against future ageing, but I can't say whether or not it did achieve anything as once the bottle ran out I used other products and then recently thought why not give it another go? 

So onto the latest version 'Synchronized Recovery Complex II'. I don't know if it's the fact that 'Tocopherol Acetate' (Vitamin E) has been pushed down to 30th place on ingredients list (used to be 13th), or whether it's because 'Retinyl Palmitate (an ester of Vitamin A) has been completely removed from the new version, but this one is not doing anything for blemishes whatsoever and I've been using it for over a month. It makes sense as both of those ingredients, especially Vitamin A in any form are known to help fade blemishes.

Add to that a whole host of new and unpronounceable ingredients and that probably explains why if anything I'm getting even more breakouts since trialing this...although which one (or more) of the many new ingredients is the culprit I couldn't say! Not sure why they just couldn't let a good thing be and have to change/ruin it?

Edit: Originally used and wrote the above in May 2017 - but didn't upload it here, had it saved to my notepad. Have recently (July 2018) tried again but for a shorter period and somehow this time around it did show a difference on a small acne mark on my chin, not as significant as with the older formulation but definitely more than when initially using. Not sure if its potency increases over time or if there's some other logic behind that...
