Ok, so it is very easy to forget how good some products feel on the skin.

I've always been a fan of Estee Lauder in general. Their makeup and skincare was definitely my absolute favourite until around about when I started blogging (which I now believe is down to getting all adventurous and experimenting with other brands more).

So it was like a lovely trip down memory lane when I opened up one of these moisturisers the other day as a result of a) running out of my usual and b) being back home with access to all my stored beauty products.

It was so lovely because I was instantly transported to a place where my skin feels moisturised without being greasy, smells and looks great all due to this beauty.

I should say at this point that I refer to smell because this product really does smell amazing. So fresh but in a really witch hazely way (or something). I haven't quite worked out the smell, but for me it is by far the best smelling facial moisturiser I own.

So how does it work on the skin? Beautifully.

I've been using it as a makeup base and it works great. No greasiness, sinks into the skin effortlessly, keeps skin supple and provides a perfect even texture to apply my foundation. Which then lasts all day.

My pores look reduced and the tone better.

I would 100% recommend this and I think I am going to go back to my old favourites (cleanser, toner etc) as a result as I just felt like "ah yes, this is what my skin loves" when I tried it again for the first time in so long.

Price? £37.00, so make it last...


  1. Ohh this sounds good! I'm always scared of heavy creams because i don't like the feeling! what foundation do you use atm?

  2. @Kerrymarie - Yeah this one feels really light. Much better than some of the moisturisers I have been using lately.

    Foundation-wise I tend to use Estee Lauder Double Wear and MAC Studio Fix.

  3. Oooo I like the sound of this cream :) x

  4. I love this cream too. I'm nearly finished mine so am using it sparingly at the minute but it is gorgeous and the smell is lush. Mmm!


I really appreciate your comments and read every single one!
