Life can be tough on our skin. On a daily basis we are exposed to sun damage, pollution and impurities that can cause blemishes, pre-mature aging and loss off vitality. We have no control over our genetics or the weather but you can fight back with effective skincare.
Estee Lauder’s Perfectionist Pro Treatment ($145.00) targets aging skin to improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging, fade lines, plump, boost radiance, refine pores, even texture and correct tone. This may seem like a lot of magic in one simple bottle but the concentration is infused with a powerful, custom designed peptide called Acetyl Hexapeptide -8. This potent, fast-acting ingredient helps rebuild collagen and strengthen elastin so the jawline and cheeks look more lifted, toned and defined (ideal for capturing the perfect selfie and repairing the damaging effects of time). When using this treatment, remember to apply sunscreen and limit exposure as you may be more sensitive to UV. The lightweight, hydrating texture makes skin feel soft, smooth and healthy but there is no pump for extraction. I simply dip the stick in and apply directly to clean skin.
The Perfectionist Pro Instant Wrinkle Filler ($72.00) has rave reviews but I can’t attest to the amazing claims because I don’t have lines or wrinkles. That being said, I will explain how the product works in case you want to pair it with the serum for optimal results. The unique formula is infused with a Tri-Polymer blend of advance filling spheres and blurring optics that fade, smooth and plump deep lines and wrinkles. You should see immediate improvement, and overtime it helps amplify natural collagen for more firmness and lift.
I Love Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair formula and if you want a fabulous all-in-one product that makes your skin look healthy, dewy and youthful, you need to try the Synchronized Recovery Complex II ($120.00). The limited-edition “lucky red” bottle commemorates Chinese New Year and makes a great gift (especially with Mother’s Day coming up). The serum works with your body’s natural regeneration process as you sleep to deeply replenish, brighten, improve texture and tone, soften, balance and prevent visible signs of aging. It also nourishes and hydrates dull, skin so you look well rested and refreshed. I layer it with the Advanced Night Repair Mask-In-Oil ($100.00) for more moisture.
If you hate waking up with haggard, puffy eyes then try the new Day Wear Eye Cream ($52.00). Pop the jar in the fridge before application and let the cool, lightweight formula refresh and soothe tired eyes with a blend of cucumber and antioxidants. The complex hydrates for 24 hours, brightens to improve dark circles, de-puffs, protects and minimizes fine lines. I also use it on my eyelids to prevent dryness and improve the look of eye shadow.
