Estée Lauder...

Let's talk skin care for a minute... I was given a sample of Estée Lauder's Advanced Night Repair many years ago and I loved it! This was the product that initially turned me on to Estée Lauder skin care. And for years I used only Estée Lauder products for my skin.

This was my regimen:

Cleanse: Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser (normal/combination skin)

Tone: Perfectly Clean Fresh Balancing Lotion

Repair Serum: Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher (day) & Advanced Night Repair (night)

Moisturize: Resilience Lift Extreme.  The Ultra Firming Creme SPF 15 for day and Over Night Ultra Firming Creme at night.

I never really had problem skin, but this regimen just absolutely perfected my skin and as a result of it, this is what my skin looked like .

But as you already suspect, there was trouble in paradise. I wasn't crazy about the formulation of the cleanser, I didn't like the scent of the day creme and for the what it cost I wasn't so sure about the results I was getting with the Idealist serum. And therein lies the crux: The cost. Estée Lauder is not cheap. So even though I loved all the other products in my regimen, gradually I started replacing them too with cheaper alternatives... Big mistake. Big. Huge! (I saw Julia Roberts in Valentine's Day yesterday. Loved it.)

So now I'm back, like a prodigal ehmm.. daughter. I purchased Advanced Night Repair at Douglas about 2 weeks ago and received a little gift with it:

Besides a lipstick and mascara this little gift set also contains miniatures of the Perfectionist Wrinkle Lifting Serum, Time Zone Line and Wrinkle Reducing Creme and Time Zone Anti Line/Wrinkle Eye Creme.

After just 2 weeks I'm already seeing a huge difference in my skin, so I'm hopeful I can get my skin back to the way it was. Who said you can never go back? It's good to be home. :-)

What's your skincare regimen?
