Estee Lauder Skincare
I’ve been trialling two products from the Estee Lauder skin care range fr about a month, and am currently on a new trial with another skincare range. I have been on the search to find a perfect skin care duo, or steps tat compliments my skin and possibly beats my much loved Oilatum Natural Repair face cream. My skin is certainly dry and prone to dry patches, which are red in appearance and not very flattering! And the dry skin flakes are certainly a nightmare to get rid off.
I have spent too much of my time trying to find the solution by reading reviews and buying products I hate so have started asking for samples at counters to assist me with a month trial and I find that is a much better way of finding the perfect skincare products for yourself rather than just buying without trying. Saying that, I bought Oilatum through watching a review, and it was the best decision I make so you never know..
I decided that I would try two products from the range, and chose this particular cream which was aimed at dry skin. This is the Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Dry Creme, and it boasted a ’24 hour system’ so I opted not to try the night cream also. My first thoughts on it was that it smelt really nice and for someone like me, that is an added bonus as my skin isn’t so sensitive that it would react to anything contain fragrance.
The cream itself, well it’s certainly something I can live without. That’s not saying I didn’t like it, because I did. It does the job and keeps the dry skin at bay but doesn’t make my skin feel super smooth, or really that much different. I get the same results from my Nivea cream at fraction of the cost. Want to know the price? £58 for a 50ml. Now I really am glad I tried it out before buying! There was a time the reviews may have swayed me to purchase but I am so glad I’m made of stronger stuff now!
The second product I tried was a part of the Estée Lauder ‘Repair Serum’ range. The product I sampled was the Estée Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator. Now my skin, especially around my cheeks has slightly darker pigmentation compared to the rest of my face. I’m not sure why and I’m on the verge of giving up trying to understand! (I can notice it, but most people can’t!) But the words ‘Even Skintone’ jumped up at me and I chose to combine the cream with this serum. I applied them both, serum first, twice a day for around a month.
I loved the silky feel to the serum, and I THINK it did make a slight difference. Being winter, the pigmentation is much less prominent so maybe I will try it again in the summer. I am thinking of adding a serum to my permanent skin care routine and I will definitely consider. It is quite pricey, at 30ml retailing for £46 but if it does solve my annoying pigmentation problem.. ahh I don’t know, I will have to think about this some more and try it in the summer. Think this calls for another makeupatoz review in the summer!
