Brand Overview

Re-Nutriv Lightweight Creme is an emollient but overall lackluster formula compared to most other Lauder moisturizers, including those selling for half this price. The “Lightweight” portion of the name is misleading due to this moisturizer’s oil content.

Jar Packaging: Yes
Tested on animals: Yes

Has everything dry skin wants in a moisturizing crme--only lighter. Softens and smoothes surface skin under makeup or on its own. Helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

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.
