I haven't really included product reviews in my blog, but I am impressed with this product and would like to share.
I was lucky to be chosen by Younger You website to test the new Estee Lauder’s Even Skintone Illuminator before the product launch in Australia.
Estee Lauder says: In just 2 weeks: 62% of women showed a significant improvement in skintone in a clinical test. Over time skin looks noticeably clearer and brighter, vibrant and more even-toned. This intensive, yet gentle oil-free serum features powerful technologies to address the look of every key sign of uneven skintone:
1. Triple-Optic Technology provides skin with a brighter, more luminous look from the very first application.
2. CorrectTone Technology visibly reduces uneven skintone in 2 weeks, while anti-oxidants help prevent its re-appearance.
Imagine skin so incredibly clear, even-toned and radiant, you have nothing to hide. Proven gentle and effective for all ethnicities.
With those claims I was skeptical but excited to try it
As you all know I have Rhuematoid Arthritis. My skin was looking pretty rough ,puffy, tired and uneven,small white patches from old skin infections ,darker patches and with big dark circles under my eyes. I also have been plagued over the last few months with a very large area of exma starting from under my nostrils to the side of my nose and mouth, it was flaring and lumpy, itchy every few days, would recede but leave me a bright strawberry mark and then flare again.Horrid.Hence why no photos of me here.....Yes I'm vain....even with you guys...
The product arrived beautifully packaged in an Estee Lauder bag and the bottle is elegant and exxy looking.,I love the aqua colour with the gold.
It is easy to pump,doesn't give you too much,so no waste .It applies well, feels like silk and glides on easily and absorbs immediately. No greasy afterfeel at all.
I had quicker results than the other ladies who left reviews on facebook . Within a few days my skin was feeling smoother, like a babys bum . I think its a brilliant moisturiser as well as illuminator and I stopped using my normal moisturiser.Within the first week the excema seemed to settle. I didn’t expect that the excema would dissapear but it has reduced significantly. I still have a small patch in the crease beside my nose, but the rest is gone. Can’t thank Estee Lauder enough for that one!!! I had been using an antimflamatory cream and an antibiotic cream to no avail.
It is 3 weeks into the trial now , my dark circles under my eyes have gone , my daughters and husband have noticed this and that my skin looks softer and smoother. The little white scarring is gone, my skin looks more even .
I look forward to continued improvement, ahhh if only it could get rid of freckles LOL but seriously, my skin looks and feels better overall everyday.
I am extremely happily extatic with the product and my only complaint is the cost.At $150 for the larger bottle,I'm povo, on a disability pension,it's just beyond my means. I’m using it as sparingly as I can.
Fingers crossed Estee Lauder may notice my review and send me another bottle
