Brand Overview

Re-Nutriv Intensive Softening Lotion has a lot to benefit all skin types, including antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients. If you’re going to spend a lot of money on a toner, this option has visible rewards! A couple of cautions: Lauder included gold in this product, likely to reinforce their marketing of Re-Nutriv as luxury skin care. If you have metal allergies (such as to nickel), this may be a problem; research has shown those with nickel allergies often have a similar though less-intense response to skin contact with other metals, including gold (Source: Clinical and Experimental Immunology, December 2006, pages 417–426). The second concern is the clear plastic bottle packaging. Once you have this at home, you must store it away from light sources to protect the efficacy of the antioxidants and plant extracts. Do not leave this sitting on your vanity counter.

Jar Packaging: No

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.
