Posted this on my Dayre the other day – an early Christmas present from Estee Lauder!  Thank you Estee Lauder. I love trying out new products so I can find the best for myself. <3

On the right is the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum.  And the bottle on the left is a new product, the Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion, which is the focus of this blog post. 🙂

Untitled

 

Complete with personalized note.  I feel so loved hehehe.

Untitled

 

When I met up with Estee Lauder, I asked them was this a toner? Serum? Essence? The answer is none of the above, it doesn’t fall into any of the usual product categories.  While it can be considered a treatment lotion (a “watery” lotion that delivers skincare benefits and is usually the first step in a skincare regimen after cleansing), the best way to describe it is Essence-in-lotion, because it works like a serum/essence but in watery lotion form.

It’s like a high performance treatment lotion because it works like a serum/essence but in watery lotion form.

It helps strengthen skin’s foundation and reduce imperfections – revealing a youthful glow/radiance from within.  And it’s called Micro Essence because it micro targets skin to reach where hydration is needed most, micro nourishes, and micro activates pro-youth skin function to “reset” the look of the skin immediately and long term.

I show you how to use!  It should be the next step, after cleansing.  Which means you use it in place of toner or other lotions.

(face is bare except for eyebrows.  Because nobody wants to see me without eyebrows.)

Untitled

 

You can either soak a cotton pad with Micro Essence or pour 5-6 drops into your hand straight.  I usually pour into my hands because I find it wasteful to let cotton pad soak up all the goodness.  The good stuff is for my face!!

Untitled

 

Rub both hands together gently.

Untitled

Starting from the chin, gently press into skin from the center out.

Untitled

 

Move upwards to cheeks..

Untitled

..and forehead.

Immediately skin felt quite refreshed!  The lotion absorbed very quickly into my skin and immediately my skin felt supple but not sticky.

Micro Essence has serum-like properties but it’s not meant to replace serum in your skincare regime.

Untitled

 

A serum like the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair should follow.Untitled

 

Pour out a few drops..

Untitled

Again do the same, by gently patting it on my face.

Untitled

 

Then continue with your usual moisturizer and finish up.

Untitled

How? Got look prettier younger or not? Hahahaha.

I’ve used this product for two weeks now. While there’s no sudden change like wah wake up next day my skin is as smooth as Fighter’s bottom (because that is magic which doesn’t exist in Muggle world wtf), I have noticed subtle differences.

For example, my skin can be quite patchy and uneven toned. I don’t use foundation so I normally use a lot of concealer to hide dark spots or red patches.  I can’t tell specifically but now I can do without the concealer on my face – just dab under the eyes, apply sunblock and go.  The biggest difference to me is how my skin feels when I touch it actually – supple and smooth.

Still wanna see more reviews?

Watch this transformation video on the Estee Lauder website here.

Micro Essence was developed specially for Asian skin and is only available in Asia!  So if you go to Europe or the US, you won’t find this there.

It was tested out on Asian women and 96% saw a significant improvement in skin texture and clarity, 95% felt skin was more hydrated, and 91% felt skin was more even toned.

I am the 91%!

Here are the 9 characteristics Micro Essence improve on for a youthful glow.

Therefore, by looking at your post, I hope this Estée Lauder micro essence can helps to improve my uneven skin tone, hydration, lighten my scars and able to make my sensitive skin to become better and healthier.nThank you very much! :)nnemail: samcopau@gmail.com

    Hi Audrey!nnI have always had acne prone skin since puberty. In recent years, my skin has had its fair share of those horrible headless pimples, dry patches, uneven and dull skin tone, redness and enlarged pores. I was actually given a nickname; The Moon. Because the moon’s surface is filled with holes, bumpy and obviously not as smooth as a baby’s bump. I have religiously used all the facial products to improve my skin, and I believe the Estee Lauder Micro Essence can help with reaching my dream of achieving hydrated, smooth and even-tone skin.nnMy email is miss-dy89@hotmail.com.nnPS: I love reading your blog regularly and ure doing a fabulous job being a mom!

    I’m 45, my skin has no idea what age it wants to be. Maybe I’m trying too hard to keep it young. I don’t know. I just know that I don’t look 45 nor do I want to. I gotta few years before I hit the age of no return. Just trying to retain some youth. No wrinkles yet, still breaking out. lots of dryness in some spots though. would really like to even things out, stop the acne, and stop the dryness. keep the fine lines from developing into wrinkles anytime soon.

    Well I am at the age of 24 but it has patchy spots/uneven tone. These days I caught up with dry peeling skin especially around my nose area. It felt like I am having skin of the age of 42. I need one of this magic potion.

  • Bleusnow

    I am a frequent flyer (due to the nature of my job) hence my skin are dehydrated but it is oily at the same time. Very difficult to explain my condition as it is a bit of everything ! arrrgghh,, open pores, redness, dehydrated but oily, not smooth, patchy, Micro Essence would be a great additional step for my skin (hopefully, cross fingers) to even out my skin, make it more toing toing and hopefully with this my other serum will be absorbed much more easily into the skin….. nThanking you in advance 🙂 :pnCheerio !nbleusnow.g@gmail.com

  • Ginny

    Hi Audrey,nMy T-zone is quite oily and thus I always have oily T-zone with very obvious open pores in the evening. However, my other part of face are very dry, especially on my cheeks and my under eyes. I tend to get under eyes wrinkle whenever I laugh too hard. People tell me it’s a sign of aging. I don’t know but I wish to keep my skin youthful! Estee Lauder products always have a lot of good review, however I couldn’t always afford to buy it. I wish I could get it!nnMy email: mail.iamginny@gmail.com

  • Ashley Miller

    My skin is crazy dry and I have yet to find any moisturizers to help. I also have eczema on my arms and thighs that causes me lots of issues. I have never tried this product so would love to give it a run even if I dont win! =) (although, free is always better LOL) Thanks for the chance!! <3

  • Min Q

    Hi Audrey,nnI would like to get this for my mom since this month is her birthday and yet i haven’t bought her anything. *guilty* She has uneven skin tone, dehydrated skin with pigmentation of dark spot around cheeks, and lots of wrinkles. Well, that’s how a typical Malaysia mama looks like, where they are paying most of the attention to their families instead of themselves.nnSo, i think Estee Lauder Micro Essence might be useful to improve her skin condition. Perhaps a more even toned and hydrated skin, as well as glowing youthful skin? Maybe after that people will address us as sisters instead of mother and daughter? LOL! nnJust would like to give it a try since there are many good reviews on Estee Lauder products. And yeah, i will still buy her a present anyway. Haha. Have a nice day! <3nnminQ@live.com

  • JanLyn

    Hi hot mama Audrey! nI would like to win this for my mummy cuz she’s currently undergoing the golden aging process. Thus, her skin condition is not so good as before. It sucks to see my mummy like that but I dont have enough money yet to buy her any beauty products to improve her skin conditions. CNY is also just around the corner so I hope I get to win this for her just in time to improve her skin for the festive event! I really hope to win this for her! Thank you! =Dnjanlyn91@gmail.com

    Hi Audrey,nMy skin is dry and it will cause discomfort when the skin is tight. Micro Essence can help to rejuvenate my skin as it can penetrate deep within the pores and bring out the youthfulness and glow. Thank you for this chance! Hope to hear from you soon. michelleyeoh_93@hotmail.com

  • Lynn

    Hi Audrey!nSince young I suffered from acne-prone skin and as I matured, my skin got better. But I still need to put foundation & make-up (constantly being teased that I have ICI paint on my face) on to hide my imperfections (battle scars from my younger days). Like all women, I am constantly searching for products to improve my skin condition hoping that someday I am able to step out of the house with little or no make-up on like you! I hope with Estee Lauder’s new Mirco Essence, I will be able to achieve that life long dream of clear, translucent and smooth skin. nnLynn.ncandypoome@gmail.com

    I have blemishes, acne scars, uneven skin tone, discolouration, dark spots.. you name it. My face is really sensitive and have been dealing with acne issues since young. Even when I was preggy, I was breaking out like mad. Now that my skin sorta ‘calm down’ a little after giving birth, it’s time to feed my skin with some good stuff (skin also need nutrients ma not only baby). I have been following Estee Lauder’s fb for some time and always wanted to try out their products. Too bad all beauty funds goes to baby funds every time I go shopping. Wish I can win this!!!

  • Christyn

    Hello Aud, I’ve been following you for quite sometime already but seldom leave comments but this giveaway is too good! haha. thanks yo. and hopefully you pick me as one of the winners! My skin is quite sensitive and on top of that it’s dry and oily at the same time. It looks oily on the T-zone but in fact my skin is pretty dry inside (if ya know what i mean) and i have uneven skin tone. I also depend alot on concealer (just like you I seldom use foundation) and I think this Estee Lauder Micro essence can help to even out my skin tone, hydrate my skin and of cos make me look radiant! Who doesnt love smooth supple skin? :)nThanks yo!nchristynlmc@gmail.comn

  • Louissa Liau

    I have uneven skin tone around the center of my face (nose and mouth area). That area has always been darker than other parts of my face. I’ve tried using all sorts of moisturizers but they only improve the dark patch on my face slightly and that only when i pile multiple layers of moisturizers on. This makes me think that maybe my skin isn’t hydrated well enough despite what I’ve tried doing. I hope this Micro Essence can help me get rid of my uneven skin tone and giving it enough hydration it needs 🙂 Thanks :)nnLouissa Liaunloui_96-li@hotmail.com

  • Annie

    Hi Audrey,nnI never have skin issues when I’m a teen but to my horror, I started breaking out during my last year in university. Fast forward now, I have blemishes, acne scars, redness, oily, sensitive skin and I’m still breaking out occasionally. I don’t wear makeup to cover up cause I do not want to cause another wave of outbreak. From your review, I do think and hope *fingers and toes cross* that this Ester Lauder’s micro essence will solve my skin problem (some if not all) to help me achieve a better and healthier skin.nI do hope that I can win this. Thank you.nnRegards, nAnnienannewsf@gmail.com
