Estee Lauder just introduced their first ever Vitamin C treatment Perfectionist Pro Rapid Brightening Treatment with Ferment2 + Vitamin C ($148.00 for 50 mL) along side with the Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion Fresh with Sakura Ferment ($124.00 for 200 mL). Estee lauder is one of the brands that does well with both skincare and beauty products at the same time. Both their Advance Night Repair serum and Double Wear foundation is one of the best selling product all over the world. And here are a closer look at these new additions this time.
Perfectionist Pro Rapid Brightening Treatment with Ferment2 + Vitamin C is a very powerful dark spot brightening serum that visibly brightens complexion while adds radiance and glow. It keeps the skin well hydrated for up to 48 h ours and designed for all skin textures. The texture is super light and it has a gel-like feel into it and gets into the skin immediately. Its a perfect treatment for some one with uneven skin tone, dark spots or dullness.
I couldn’t detect any heavy scent to it but it does feels fresh on skin. Some Vitamin C treatments are too strong for my skin to handle but this one was gentle enough for my skin. I still use this as a treatment so I have been using it 3-4 times a week during my night time routine. But since the product claims that it literally gives you results within one week I put it into the test for the past week for every day to see the results. I have quite some dark spots and uneven tone skin that I time to time use treatments to keep them bright. Although I have been using quite some brightening treatments for the past couple of months, I was really surprised to see that after using this one they have reduced in color significantly. I believe you need more time than one week to really see the actual difference in total. But overall the results were more obvious. You can y find the images with different shade, that’s just with natural lighting.
While using any kind of brightening serums its important to protect the skin from sun exposure while using the product and at least a week after the use of the product. Its also formulated with hyaluronic acid which help skin sooth and adds long lasting moisture.
Up next is the new Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion Fresh with Sakura Ferment is an essence in lotion that works deep within skin’s surface to stabilize skin and while it keeps up the hydration levels through out the day and adds a nice glow. Its designed for all skin textures. Since the weather is super dry at the moment this Micro Essence is a perfect way to keep the skin’s moisture levels high.
I’m not a huge fan of toners in general but I have been hooked to essence lotions for quite some times now and its one of the most important part of my morning skin care routine. This one really does a good job to keep the skin softer and smoother all day long. Its infused with Sakura Ferment, double-flowered cherry blossoms from Japan and sake lees fermented with cherry yeast that all together they work towards a skin that feels soothed and supple.
I personally prefer to use my balm and apply the essence directly onto the skin rather than using a cotton pad but if you can definitely go ahead and use the cotton pad there is nothing wrong using it. It comes in a good size glass bottle that will last a very long time (for me it would last about 6 + months).
Bottom line, I absolutely love a good skincare product that isn’t too heavy or too intense when it comes to formula. I find the Perfectionist Pro Rapid Brightening Treatment is gentle enough for a sensitive skin and it works its magic slowly but surely. I would have use this treatment during the winter time since there is less sun exposure or at night time to keep it on safer side. Meanwhile I absolutely love the Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion Fresh new formula with Sakura Ferment. Its a perfect way to add extra moisture to the skin during the spring/summer months without feeling any heavy feel into the skin. It keeps the skin soft and smooth through out the day and definitely complexion looks more fresh.
