The Re-Nutriv Intensive Lifting Crème by Estee Lauder has been around since it was created by Estée Lauder herself in 1958.   It was a “goldmine of beauty” then and still with each new addition to the line since.   The newest addition being this Intensive Lifting Lotion.  

I love that it’s a lightweight version of the crème and it still has the powerful lifting benefits.   For me it’s perfect texture for the humid summer months.   Giving me great benefits, without being too heavy.  

Filled with precious botanical extracts like Lady’s Thistle, Dill Fruit extracts from India and Tahitian Vanilla and Poria Cocos.   As I said many times before I’m not a scientist, but I love how this feels and works on my skin.


The other new fabulous addition to the Estee Lauder line is this Idealist Dual-Action Refinishing Treatment.   This is a gentle alternative to both micro-dermabrasion and a 30% glycolic acid peel, but  it still provides the same instant skin renewing benefits. 

This treatment feels slightly warm to the skin, opening the pores to deep clean without harshness.  This includes concentrated levels of Glucosamine and Salicylic Acid plus 5 scubbing spheres

  • Soft Sweep Spheres
  • Bamboo Spheres
  • Jade Spheres
  • Hydra Replenishing Spheres
  • Skin Conditioning Spheres

Use this with Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher (which many bloggers have recommended for reducing large pores) to get the ultimate skin texture.   

To me the thing that is amazingly different about this than other home skin refinishing treatments is that it is not drying at all.   In fact your skin feels smooth from the removal of  the dead cells, but the hydrating and conditioning spheres make all the difference.   Your skin is not left just freshly clean, but very soft and silky and feeling moisturized as well.  This doesn’t go on or come off your skin in a harsh way.   Simply Fabulous.
