Estée Lauder has put mid-life skin on notice. The new Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Collection addresses the unique challenges that our skin faces every day, including dullness, dehydration and the gradual breakdown of collagen and elastin, which results in sagging skin. Read on for more…
Estée Lauder scientists have determined that a weak support structure not only causes skin to sag, but also prevents skin from absorbing and reflecting light the way young skin does, resulting in loss of radiance. I’ve certainly noticed all of those issues at one time or another with my own skin. This collection of intensely nourishing moisturizers uses a combination of technology, visible light and restorative night cycles to help skin look it’s best–whatever your age.
I’ve been using two products from this collection–the Resilience Lift Night Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Creme and the Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Eye Creme.
Resilience Lift Night Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Creme ($80) features a Nocturnal Lift Complex, which was developed to work at night to restore skin while we sleep. This complex includes K3 Vitamin C and Sirtuin Technology, which boosts the natural activity of the longevity gene SIRT-1. The night time activity helps skin recover from damage sustained during the day. The Creme is rich and super-moisturizing without being heavy. An added bonus: the calming scent, which features Cardamom, Caraway and Orange. I’ve been using this Creme on my face and neck nightly and I have seen improvement, especially in the neck area.
Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Eye Creme ($55) uses the Nocturnal Lift Complex as well as a Photo-Activated Lift Complex to help skin boost its natural collagen and elastin production. Luminizing optics blur the look of fine, dry lines, so the eye area looks firmer, brighter and smoother. This is an eye creme that I really like. It’s very moisturizing, helps firm and does help diminish the look of fine lines. It’s a great eye cream to use as we transition from summer to fall and winter.
