Luxurious anti-aging skincare is one of my favourite things in beauty, and was what spurred me to start blogging years ago. There are lots of brands out there that position themselves as the purveyors of the finest, and there are brands that just do extremely well across the grain. Estée Lauder often gets overlooked precisely because it seems so mainstream, but I was recently blown by how amazing and luxurious their top-of-the-line offerings can be. Inspired by the magic and power of nature’s dew, and harnessing the powers of exotic florals, Estée Lauder presents us with the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Collection.
More than 60 years ago, Estée Lauder unveiled the most luxurious skincare collection to the world, the first Re-Nutriv cream was perfected in a secret vault with 26 of the most expensive ingredients. It was immediately recognised as a uniquely precious and rare item. Since then, the line has branched out extensively, every item as exquisitely formulated and luxurious. The latest, Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Collection is driven by the exclusive Floralixir Dew, a mineral-enriched Ionic Water. The latter is created by a patented process of electrogravitational technology, that is easily and rapidly absorbed deep into the skin. Extracts from the Himalayan Gentian and Brasil Everlasting flowers are added to the Ionic Water to create the Floralixir Dew. Both flowers are selected for their natural abilities to thrive under extreme natural conditions and are prized for their ability to defend against harsh conditions. Combined with critical minerals that are essential for skin vitality, the Floralixir Dew is able to improve cellular communication, thereby boosting collagen production and replumping the skin from within. Barrier functions are improved and skin recovers its youthful density and volume.
There are 4 products in the line, of which the Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Serum best encapsulates the essence of the line. Concentrated levels of the Floralixir Dew combined with lifting and firming ingredients are encapsulated in micro-droplets that are suspended in an aqua-gel serum. This way, the high potency and integrity of the ingredients are preserved, and each pump dispenses the ideal blend of freshening water and comforting oil.
In case you like to start with the easy stuff, or just to complete your pampering experience, I highly recommend the Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Treatment Lotion and Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Floralixir Dew Regenerating Water. There is nothing simpler than taking a few drops in your palms and patting them to your face after cleansing. It feels uplifting and refreshing, and immediately soothes and rehydrates my skin. My skin loves both of these products, and look brighter and smoother with each use!
My ultimate love has always been eye creams, and ever since I fell in love with the Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Eye Cream I have been hooked to the line. The latest Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Eye Creme is a lighter take on eye care, and charming with its soufflé-like texture. It is incredibly hydrating and soothing on tired eyes, and helps keep fine lines ad puffiness at bay. South Sea Pearls provide a lustrous brightening effect to my often tired eyes and ease away signs of dark circles. Personally, I found that it is not as effective at lifting my droopy eyes, though much more affordable than the Ultimate Diamond, so it could be a day-time alternative to help stretch out the dollar.
Returning to the creams that started us on this journey, there are 2 in this line to choose from – the silky Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Creme, and a lighter Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Creme Gelee. I am always drawn to anything gel-like, especially when they are non-sticky and as gorgeously formulated as this is. The lightweight texture is beguiling, as the Gelee packs a whole lot of skin pampering lifting and firming benefits, and reinforces skin’s lipid barrier. I like it for both day and night, though in the current freezing weather, the Creme can be comforting without any trace of greasiness or weighing down makeup.
Whichever product you choose from the line, Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Collection is luxurious in every way you can imagine. From the golden packaging to the sensorial pleasures of scent and texture, you are bound to be pleased. (Word on The results on my skin?)
