Estée Lauder has impressed me greatly this year with their new launches including their Re-Nutrive Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Serum which I will be covering in this post. As you all know, I'm very critical when it comes to skincare products as I'm always in search of something more versatile and better in terms of result delivery. Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Serum isn't just likable, but it actually works. If you have been reading my posts, then you already know that I hardly say such things at the beginning as it's very challenging to please my standard, but there you go, dear Estée Lauder, you got it this time! Bravo! :)

Sadly, Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Serum isn't fragrance-free, so if you are not a fan of floral scent, you may want to pass. However, I've been enjoying the scent even more as the weather has gotten cold, wet and dark outside, which lifts my mood a bit by bringing those fun memories from this Summer. Yes, it helps me start and finish a day in a more pleasant way :). Although fragrance by itself isn't very good for skin technically, but our mood and mind also affects our skin as a whole, so there's a double sided dilemma there >_<.

I really love this pump packaging as it's light, air tight, easy to use and most importantly, you can actually check the amount that is left in the bottle. The regenerating serum comes out in a clear gel consistency.
It may seem light and fast-absorbing, but don't get fooled. Compared to how easily the serum spreads and how smooth it goes on, there's a big surprise awaiting you :)
It's uber hydrating! It's fool-proof that you will simply love the serum if you have been unsatisfied with the light finish of most lifting serums on the market. Let me tell you as a lifting skincare lover, it's very rare to find such a gem that hydrates and also delivers its claims simultaneously.
Having said that, the finish can be a little sticky if you put too much or you don't follow with anything over the top. It still gives a beautiful born-to-glow dewy finish and that glow stays on even upon wake-up.
This luxuriously concentrated treatment creates a more lifted look and intensely firmer feel. Strengthens skin against signs of aging. The serum surges with powerful Ultimate Lift technology, potent firming ingredients and concentrated levels of Floralixir™ Dew.
Precious droplets suspended in the silky-soft serum encapsulate key youth boosters, then burst in a rush of renewal for a younger, radiant look.
THE FLORALIXIR™ DEW
A potent force to reawaken skin's youthful renewal. It begins with two precious flowers that thrive in the frigid Himalayas and the parched highlands of Brazil, their potency magnified by the power of Re-Nutriv science.
Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Serum isn't just a regular serum. It moisturises, hydrates, plumps and firms skin. You won't need an extra hydrating serum in your beauty cabinet if you get this one. To be honest, the regenerating serum feels a lot more deeply hydrating than other hydrating serums and it does have that longevity too, which surprised me the most. Meaning, it's long-haul flight safe, and you will survive at the ski resort as long as you put on the right moisturiser afterwards :).
After a night, you will start seeing that youthful glow on your skin through your mirror in the morning. And you will be noticing more balanced and healthy-looking skin as days go by. I've also noticed that the fine lines on my face seem less obvious/ harsh, and my jaw area seems to be a bit more contoured. There's no dramatic lifting effect, but it certainly does seem to firm skin pretty well as an over-the-counter product. Thanks to its longevity of hydration, I have been washing my face only with warm water and following with the serum and sunscreen in the morning since my normalised skin doesn't feel in need of any extra.
If you are looking for a versatile firming solution, I highly recommend you to check Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Serum as it does bring that youthful looking skin back. If you live in a cold/dry climate or you have dryness and dehydration issues in your skin generally, then you will love the serum :). It may seem expensive, but it isn't that bad if we think about the versatility and technology that they used for the delivery of the ingredients to skin. It's dermatologist tested and it won't clog pores, which explains why I didn't get any irritations even during my cycle. Having said that, I still wouldn't recommend it to oily/combination skin unless you decide to use it locally simply because your skin may feel over moisturised, which will result in imbalanced skin. Nevertheless, the serum feels very nurturing that my skin has been feeling rather normal than sensitive even during the seasonal change. I hope you all enjoy the serum as much as I have been :). Best luck!
