Brand Overview

This tinted sunscreen with shimmer contains avobenzone for sufficient UVA protection. Because the Bronze Goddess products are all about the seduction of tropical, exotic scents, this product is highly fragranced. It contains the usual assortment of beneficial ingredients we’ve come to expect from Lauder, but their effect on skin will be limited because the skin has to defend itself from the irritation caused by the amount of fragrance and the many fragrant plants in this product. This isn’t one of Lauder’s better sunscreens, but it’s an acceptable option for normal to slightly dry skin.

Estee Lauder At-A-Glance

The history of Estee Lauder goes back to 1946, when the woman who created the brand (and for whom it is named) began selling creams and lotions made by her chemist uncle. From its humble beginnings, Estee Lauder has grown to become a multibillion-dollar company whose products are sold all over the world and advertised in just about every fashion and women's lifestyle magazine available.

The biggest compliment we can pay to the venerable Estee Lauder line is that their moisturizers and serums can largely be described as state-of-the-art. Though fragrance is often intrusive, but when it comes to formulary excellence culminating in products that give skin what it needs to function optimally, they are tough to beat.

When it comes to makeup, by and large the brand also exceeds expectations. Though there are some under-performing products (you can read more about them in our individual reviews), Lauder has a number of excellent options, most notably its lip colors.
