Review: Estee Lauder Perfectionist and Resilient Lift Extreme Creme and Eye Creme9/03/2012
Last Christmas, my boss asked me to choose whether I want a make-up or a Starbucks tumbler as a Christmas gift. I did not have a hard time deciding as I always choose the make-up over anything else. Never did I expect that she was going to give me a gift set from Estee Lauder.
These items were a part of a gift set which also includes a pouch (not photographed because I abused it as a make-up kit). The set includes sample sizes of the Perfectionist C+ wrinkle lifting serum, a Resilience Lift Extreme ultra firming eye cream and Resilience Lift Extreme ultra firming creme SPF 15.
What Estee Lauder says:
This powerful wrinkle-correcting serum dramtically reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Instantly, skin looks less lined. In 4 weeks, see a 61% reduction of the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
This Resilience Lift Extreme Ultra Firming Eye Creme brings the skin around the eye area a more lifted, firmer look and a fresh rejuvenated glow-faster than ever. This rich gentle eye creme includes all the visible lifting benefits of Resilience Lift Extreme, plus special benefits just for the eyes.
This Resilience Lift Extreme Ultra Firming Creme with SPF 15 brings your skin to a more lifted, firmer look and a fresh rejuvenated glow faster than ever. This highly effective moisturizer starts working right away to deliver the multiple benefits the mid-life skin needs.
What Miss Litratista thinks:
It was a delight for me to receive these products as I have known this brand to be a very expensive one but offers high quality when it comes to their skin care products. At first, I was hesitant to use them, so I waited months before trying them out. Even though these were just sample sizes, I could attest to the effectiveness of the products included in the set. A little of every product goes a very long way.
On the Serum: I noticed that every time I used this, my skin turns supple and smooth. My make-up tends to adhere longer and that it is also effective in controlling oil. After almost a month of use (yes, it reaches a month) I noticed that my pores are smaller and my wrinkles are hardly detectable.
On Eye Creme: As early as now, I am having this fear of having "crow's feet" in my eyes. I don't want my eyes to have them most especially when I'm older so for now, I rely on eye creams. I do believe that putting on eye creams is essential because the eyes are usually the ones where premature aging is very evident. This eye creme did not disappoint me. I noticed that this eye creme can also reduce the look of puffiness.
On Face Creme: I love how this creme makes my pores look smaller. I also like that it contains SPF 15 which can be a very useful tool to fight aging as the harmful rays of the sun tend to age our skin prematurely. It doesn't have whitening effects though, but I am already satisfied with its lifting and firming benefits.
Sad to say, these products are already on the brink of running out. In as much as I would love to repurchase them, I couldn't just make a blind eye on its price. Even though I do believe that anti-aging products like these should be utilized when you're younger to experience its full benefits, it's kind of ironic having early wrinkles because of worrying its effect on your savings.
Have you tried these products? What do you think about them?
