I received this sample size Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme for free as a complimentary gift from Influenster for testing purposes only.
As you can see in the pictures above, this cute little sample-sized product came in a chic, single colored box which included the product itself as well as an information card containing all the details about what this product was supposed to do for your skin! What I learned from that information is that this product is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as increase the firmness and elasticity of skin to help it appear younger and less dull. Considering I have just embarked on my quarter-life crisis and have realized that my body is no longer functioning like that of a child, this anti-aging creme came to me at the perfect time to make me feel young and fun again!
The packaging of skincare products has never been a make-or-break thing for me, so let’s just focus on what this product can do rather than what it’s appearance looked like. Right away I noticed that it had a really thick, creamy texture to it, which I wasn’t a huge fan of. The product did say that it was made for all skin types, but for someone with very oily skin, I almost always opt for a lighter feeling skin care product. Luckily, most of the thickness just melted away right into my skin upon application and didn’t leave much of an oily layer behind which I was really surprised by!
Being that my skin is (hopefully) still in it’s youth, I didn’t notice a huge difference in the elasticity of my skin. After a few days was my skin more firm and young looking? I can honestly say that I’m not sure. What I did notice was that my skin looked more vibrant and less dull after about a week of using this product in the morning after washing my face and applying toner. The biggest difference that I saw was also in my biggest problem area, wrinkles. I have big frown lines and a few forehead wrinkles that always seem to look the worst at the end of the day. I am a very expressive person and whether I’m confused, angry, or just being plain silly, I always tend of be furrowing my brows together and creating more depth to the wrinkles that I already have. After just a few days of using this product, I already was noticing that at the end of each day, my skin was looking more smooth that I was used to. I was really impressed with the fact that I noticed results in this area so quickly and was so happy with the confidence I felt from knowing that my frown lines were beginning to nearly completely go away solely from the use of this product.
Overall, I would recommend this product but only depending on what your target problem areas are. It did seem to cause a little flare up on acne for me, possibly just because it was just a new product that my skin wasn’t used to, but I worry it’s because of the thick texture of the formula clogging my pores. I don’t believe that there has ever been a cure-all skin care product created because everyone has completely different skin with completely different needs, but I do believe that depending on what you’re looking to get out of a skin product, this product has the potential to be exactly what you need!
