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:
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…)
