Your prizes will be making their way to you soon. Hope you like the Micro Essence!!!
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. 🙂
Complete with personalized note. I feel so loved hehehe.
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.)
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!!
Rub both hands together gently.
Starting from the chin, gently press into skin from the center out.
Move upwards to cheeks..
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.
Pour out a few drops..
Again do the same, by gently patting it on my face.
Then continue with your usual moisturizer and finish up.
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.
