the REVIEW (1/27/2011): The Re-Nutriv line by cosmetic giant Estee Lauder holds a firm grasp on skin care for the 40+ set – but what about for those just South of that age group? Personally, one of my main genetic skin care concerns is droopy eye lids and jowls – so anything lifting and firming certainly snags (not sags) my attention. Its always about an ounce of prevention.
The Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting collection has a rich, luxurious texture without being heavy or greasy. All of the products are fragranced – which didn’t bother me, but may be a little heavy for those with sensitivity to perfumes. The Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Cream worked very well both day and night without causing any unusual reactions or breakouts – however, it might not be enough moisture for drier, more mature skins who require more hydration. Those 30+ with slightly oily skin will appreciate its creamy, but light texture. It has become one of my go-to products when I feel like my skin needs an extra boost.
The stand out product in the collection is the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Eye Cream – which has become one of my favorites. It effectively hydrates the eye area without any puffiness in the morning. I basically slather it under my eyes and on my lids and wake with fresher and yes, more lifted eyes. This dense, slightly iridescent cream also works very well under concealer and eye makeup which is a plus. It would be perfection if it came in a pump, but since it is so rich I suppose that wouldn’t be possible.
If you’re looking for a hydrating “toner” the Re-Nutriv Softening Lotion is a good option, but I chose to use the upgraded Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lifting Lotion ($74.50) in its place (see review). The Softening Lotion has a slightly more dense/gel texture that leaves the skin hydrated, plumped and ready for treatment.
While the products in the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting line have a solid ingredient list, including gold, pearl powder and mushroom extracts – these products are far from trendy and boast no gimmicks. While I cannot comment on long term results – I was impressed with the products performance and did purchase the Re-Nutriv Hydrating Foam Cleanser ($40.50) and Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lifting Lotion ($74.50) to complete my experience.
the FINAL ROAR!: May not be powerful enough to reverse signs of aging – but is effective at hydrating which improves the look of skin and may keep it younger looking over time. Overall, a pleasant skin care line to use for those seeking a luxury experience and have anti-aging concerns.
