Estée Lauder’s Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Crèmes and Lotion

Estée Lauder introduces their most “powerfully hydrating creme to date” in their new “Hydrationist” line. “Instantly, thirsty, dehydrated skin is quenched with NEW andexclusive Bio-Mimetic Water to deliver immediate moisture lasting 24 hours. With continued use, Estée Lauder’s exclusive NEW Sustainable Moisture Complex™ with Revival Plant Extract helps boost, balance and maintain skin’s optimum moisture levels. Over time, it will help skin retain and sustain its own internal moisture for exceptional long-lasting, youth-infusing hydration. Skin becomes stronger, more comfortable and continually hydrated, and is thus better able to resist the signs of premature aging more effectively.”

INSTANT HYDRATION:HYDRATIONIST immediately replenishes thirsty skin with youth-infusing moisture lasting 24 hours. Hydrated at multiple levels, skin’s moisture balance is restored by exclusive NEW Bio-Mimetic Water with the following three unique features:1. Structured: Bio-Mimetic Water is “structured”, so that it is able to easily assimilate into skin for an immediate burst of hydration that reaches deep within to where skin needs it most.2. Mineral enhanced: The efficacy of Bio-Mimetic Water is enhanced by the concentration of vital minerals: Magnesium, Calcium, and Zinc. When skin is supplied with these nourishing minerals, it is better able to carry out its natural daily functions, such as barrier repair, more efficiently.3. Arginase Activator: Once inside the deepest surface layers of the skin, Bio-Mimetic Water helps skin stimulate arginase activity, a natural process that increases the production of urea in skin. Urea is a Natural Moisture Factor and a naturally occurring compound that binds water in skin for increased moisture. As we age, skin’s natural urea production (stimulated by arginase activity) declines. Recent Estée Lauder studies show that Bio-Mimetic Water increases arginase activity by 98% 2 .Results: Skin feels softer, smoother, and more hydrated than ever. Thirsty skin is instantly replenished with 81% immediate moisture and stays hydrated for 24 hours 3 . The appearance of fine, dry lines diminishes.

LONG-LASTING HYDRATION:HYDRATIONIST features Estée Lauder’s exclusive Sustainable Moisture Complex™, a blend of powerful ingredients that work over time to help skin naturally build and maintain a strong moisture:1. Exclusive to Estée Lauder, the Age Measurement Study was conducted over five years, and involved hundreds of women from ages 20 – 70.2. Based on in-vitro testing.3. Clinical results based on Normal/Combination Creme test barrier. This powerful complex helps skin hold and preserve its own internal moisture for deep, long- lasting and sustainable hydration. The Sustainable Moisture Complex™ consists of:1. Revival Plant Extract (Haberlea Rhodopensis): A miracle of nature, this beautiful Revival Plant has the amazing ability to dry out and survive drought conditions for several months without harm to its well- being. Upon the re-introduction of water, the plant remarkably recovers and continues to flourish, bloom, and grow. The Sustainable Moisture Complex™ featuring Revival Plant Extract helps skin sustain its internal moisture so that it is better able to adapt to everyday exposures that could cause dehydration.2. Barrier Building Blend: This unique blend delivers a wealth of our most advanced lipids and triglycerides to help strengthen and build skin’s barrier. A special “ceramide activator” also helps build skin’s barrier from the inside out by helping skin activate its own natural lipid production. Moisture is kept sealed in for deep, long-lasting hydration.3. Trehalose: A naturally occurring sugar in skin, Trehalose helps maintain a healthy water balance inside and outside of cells, providing cells with the exact level of moisture needed to function optimally.Results: Skin’s moisture barrier is strengthened by 50% after fours weeks of continued use 4 and skin’s ability to stay hydrated 24 hours after just one application also significantly improves with continued use. A stronger barrier and sustainable supply of moisture help skin fight the signs of premature aging more effectively.

UNIQUE, SIGNATURE SCENT:The signature aqua coral note that lies at the heart of the HYDRATIONIST fragrance is brought to life from the coast of Madagascar. The natural, marine coral scent combines with a hint of algae, fresh ozone, grapefruit, tangerine, and pear to create an aquatic, yet citrusy blend. The natural, green botanical impression is then enhanced with touches of hyacinth, white lily, sheer rose, sandalwood and musk.

USAGE:Use morning and night after applying your repair serum on clean skin for a more youthful, healthy look. Non-acnegenic. Dermatologist and Ophthalmologist tested.

Perfecting the lines and wrinkles…

When you get up around “my age” (*chronologically, of course), we all end up with a few teensy-tiny, and maybe one annoying, wrinkle. It’s there. You know its there. And you want it gone. While many of us do not want to resort to Botox or other cosmetic procedures to make them go away, there are times we just wish they weren’t there.

Well, Estée Lauder is going to try to help with its new line filler, Perfectionist [CP+] Targeted Deep Wrinkle Filler – the latest addition to the “Perfectionist” skincare line. It comes in a small, pen-like tube that makes it easier to apply directly where you want it. Once you apply it, just tap it into the wrinkle and smooth out the edges. This “concentrated treatment that instantly reduces the look of smile lines, crows feet and deep creases around the forehead, brows, and eyes and dramatically blurs the appearance of lip lines to hold back lipstick feathering for up to 8 hours.” Also, “with continued use, skin becomes firmer, lines are blurred and deep wrinkles appear less noticeable for a younger and smoother look.”

Now, this isn’t something I would use everyday, mostly because I don’t go for the full on face of makeup each day. However, I had a chance to try this, and when I do want to go all out, this fills in and gives me a smoother surface to play with. Remember, read the instructions. It says to use this *under* your moisturizer, and, it seems to me, that this is because the filler can be a bit drying, and the moisturizer keeps it from “cracking” while wearing it. Moisturizer also seems to give it a bit of a barrier between foundation, too, as some foundations seem to have a hard time setting over it on its own.

You can pick this up at your local Estée Lauder counter for $39.50. I’d tell you to pick it up online, but it looks like it is “out of stock”. However, if you purchase it online, they will shoot you an email telling you your expected ship date.

If you do pick this up, or are already using it, lemme know. I’m curious how it works with daily usage.

Almost like Almond pudding

You guys see this picture? It is not a lie – this body souffle/whipped cream, Votre Vu TARTE D’AMANDE Soufflé Riche Pour Le Corps ( ALMOND PIE Rich Soufflé Lotion for the Body), is almost good enough to put in a cup and eat. But DON’T – its not all safe for that.

One of my favorites scents in life is Almond. I don’t know if it goes back to my early Jergen’s Original Cherry Almond scent days or if it is just so close to smelling like Vanilla that does it. All I know is that the smell of Almond is like something from above – oh so good. (*Okay, it’s not from above, but it IS from France).

As for being as good as pudding, I’m talking about the texture of this souffle. This is a rich, and decadent, body cream, BUT, it is not heavy. It absorbs right in, making the skin feel silky and not sticky. It contains so many fatty acids, oils and vitamins like: Grape Seed Oil, Vital, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Macadamia Oil, D Panthenol and Cerasome A and E that are good for your skin, too.

Now, this is more expensive that what I would usually get (RP $48), and I did get this sent to me to try out, but I would HIGHLY recommend this if you ever want to treat yourself or if someone is looking to get you a gift. A little goes a long way, or you can slather it on – your choice. Either way, you are going to feel so treated and soothed you’ll wonder why you didn’t get it sooner. Cross my heart.
