Brand Overview

For what this body moisturizer costs, you should expect airtight packaging that keeps the delicate yet essential skin-care ingredients stable after opening. But that’s not what you get from this emollient well-formulated moisturizer. It meets the basic needs of dry skin from the neck down, but what a shame its many antioxidants will lose their effectiveness before you’re even one-quarter through this cream. Lauder also included some very good skin-identical and cell-communicating ingredients, but again, better packaging would make this pricey product easier to recommend. The plant extract Coleus forskohlii and the gold it contains are potentially troublesome for skin, but they’re basically overridden by the number of helpful ingredients surrounding them.

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.
