Hello beautiful people! I’m back! Well, for this post that is. I plan to write a few more posts for this month so I’ll be around for a little while. I wanted to be back earlier, but kids took turn to get sick. Ashton just had a bout of fever, and he’s only starting to feel better. He’s jumping around this morning like his old self, so I guess that’s a good sign. I have Dior Holiday Collection to show you and I’ll be doing that next – need to talk about that before it’s all sold out. I’m late as it is. But first, I want to tell you about this moisturizer that I’ve been enjoying the past 2 months or so. It’s the Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme + Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme (75ml, RM460). A mouthful, I know. Name aside, this cream does most of the things it promises, and I’m glad.
I used this after the silicone loaded moisturizer I talked about before, and it’s a breath of fresh air. As soon as this moisturizer touched my skin, I felt ‘Aaahhhh’. It’s lightweight and silky, absorbs into skin almost immediately, leaving it super smooth for the rest of the day and night. I’ve been using this exclusively, and it has kept my skin moisturized. The only thing I don’t like is the scent. I find it strong, but I’ve read some bloggers saying it’s a subtle fresh scent. I do have a sensitive nose though, just a disclaimer.
This cream promises to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles which I don’t have yet so I can’t say it works for that purpose. The cream is supposed to help keep the skin firm, and I think my skin is doing alright in this department. For the past 2 months of using this moisturizer, I have no issues with my skin whatsoever. Even after my 1 week holiday, lack of water intake and change of climate, my skin did not misbehave. Is it the IntuiGen Technology™ that helps activate skin’s own revitalization? I don’t know, but my skin sure likes it. The cream does keep my skin hydrated and bright, and these are 2 of the most important things I look for in a moisturizer. This cream behaves like the Revitalizing Supreme moisturizer I talked about 2 years ago, only lighter in texture and even better at keeping my skin healthy.
I do notice in the increase in price but do note the old tub came in 50ml and this in 75ml. Also, our weakening currency is doing no one any good. The ultimate question is, would I buy this moisturizer once I’m done? I would say yes. There are a few moisturizers I really like, and after using this every day and night the last 2 months, I know I will miss it tremendously once it’s gone. There’s a moisturizer for every budget I believe, but when it comes to skincare, and if it works, I don’t mind splurging a little – with a limit of course.
