Hall of Fame - Estee Lauder Revitalising Supreme CC Cream


So I first blogged about this nearly 18 months ago and during that time I've used three tubes of it, equating to roughly 6 months usage per tube. I was never on board with the labelling of creams using bra sizes - if you know what I mean - although I'm quite interested to see what someone could do with an XX cream - but it doesn't really bother me anymore - BB/CC etc are a part of our beauty-buying lives now. I have some real makeup loves and they are long overdue for the Hall of Fame.

What is it?
'This innovative, multi-action formula richly nourishes, comforts and revitalises skin's appearance.'
It's a tinted moisturiser/primer/spf/glow in a tube hybrid.

Who is it for?
All skin types. The Revitalizing Supreme range is aimed at people with signs of ageing, but Anna from Vivianna does Makeup also loves this and she has no signs of ageing...the wench.

How do you use it?/Where to use in your routine?
Apply a 5p size all over a clean, moisturised face in the morning. Add a little more if necessary, but start with less and build up. It can be used either on its own or under foundation.

What’s good about it?
This to me, is one of the CC creams/primers that I reach for regularly, especially if I'm not planning on wearing makeup. I prefer it on its own. It is a universal colour, suiting all shades, that disperses and adapts to your skin on contact, even darker skins. I write about it in more detail in my first review here. This is the first thing you put on your skin after moisturiser, and because this adds colour to the skin, I class this as makeup product. But it's a friend with benefits. It adds colour, takes away dullness, adds SPF and works as a primer - a massive all-in-one. The immediate lifting of your skintone is brilliant.

A snippet from my original review:

Suitable for:

Covering blemishes? No.
Evening out skin tone? Yes.
Hydrating/prepping the skin for use under makeup? Yes
Wearing alone without makeup? Yes, if you are having a no-makeup-day.
Heavy on top of moisturiser? No.
Makes you look better than before you used it? Oh YES.


Estee Lauder's Revitalising Supreme CC Cream is £42.00 and available from Selfridges.com - I'm sorry US readers - I don't think it's available over there! (Well I certainly cannot find it anywhere...)

  4. Just a heads up, or rather - down. This thing was dreadful on my dry and wrinkled skin.
    For dry, aging skin SK-II CC Aura Cream is a great alternative.

  6. Looks like a great gift for my mother. She doesn't wear too much makeup, but likes a little glow and evening out the complexion.

  9. I love the EE cream that they do. Lovely natural finish and glow. Downside: of i use it on a daily basis, i end up with spots and red marks. I suspect it it because of the SPF. Does anyone had a similar experience with this? Because i am willing to give it a go...

    1. Your reaction might be to the silicones. I too have bad experience with EL because of this (though I did try the EE as well, but also found it too shimmery for day time).
      Try the Clinique CC cream, which I find really good, has a range of shades and you can build up a bit for extra cover in certain areas.

    2. Thanks for your reply! What sort of ingredients should i avoid to see if my skin indeed reacts to the silicons?

  13. Really interesting review! I was wondering what your thoughts on the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue are, if you've tried it? Is the Complexion Rescue better suited for younger skin or would you recommend both? etc etc. Lots of love!

  14. Is it possible that in the US this CC cream is this http://www.esteelauder.com/product/688/13160/Product-Catalog/Skincare/By-Category/Moisturizers/DayWear/Multi-Protection-Anti-Oxidant-Sheer-Tint-Release-Moisturizer-SPF-15

    1. Hi Jacqui. That's a different product. I have both and I would say the Daywear is more like the Daywear moisturiser with a tint, were as the CC cream is more of a blur/primer.

      Hope this helps x

  15. I love the Erborian CC cream which does all that EL seems to. Have you tried it Caroline?

  17. I've always wanted to give this a try thanks for the review!

    Have you ever tried any Japanese or Korean skincare products? I've just never seen you review them so I'm curious.

  18. I didn't like this much. If you have dry skin, it will look terrible on you. Also, if you are fair, it will look orange. Try the EE cream instead. Once you get over the ridiculous name, it's an amazing product. Dewy finish, hydrating and good colour range. I'm running out of it and I'm seriously thinking of repurchasing it. That's a big thing for me because I constantly try out new things, hardly ever repurchase anything.

  19. US doesn't sell this directly in the US. We do have the EE Cream which is lovely and can be bought anywhere Estee Lauder is sold (counters, Sephora, etc)
