This is my only high-end product in my beauty stash 😀 . Let me first describe this product and then will tell you how I acquired it 🙂 . This is one of the popular skin care of this brand and it is supposed to repair the visible damage and protect skin’s future. I have it in 15 ml which is quite small and guess what is it worth? $47.50 (OMG). I will never spend that kind of money on a beauty product which is so small 🙄 .
The packaging is seriously cute. It is made of brown bottle with a dropper attached to the cap, so its easy to control how much serum you take it. When I got this, I wasn’t sure about it claims and I am still not sure. But I do use this when I feel my skin is so dry or definitely after a night out on a cold day. All you have to do is after washing your face, apply this directly on your skin and I wait for about a minute and then apply my moisturizer. My skin definitely feel better the next day. I usually use this as a night treatment.
Now moving on to the story of how I got it. I think people in US would remember this, about a year ago (Jan 2009, I think), Estee lauder company was giving away products due to some legal issue which I can’t even remember. They are giving only in Nordstrom (I think) just for 1 day. Shockingly, hubby was in Seattle during that week 😀 . So I told hubby to get me this free stuff and hubby got me this. Apparently lot of stuffs were already gone by the time he visited the store and he had to choose from this or a cream or something. Hubby chose this for me 😀 . So I got it for free 😀 .
Moving on, I rarely used it last year and have started using regularly by the beginning of this when the winter was severe. I really like it. The smell is very light and the skin just absorbs the serum. It is a very light consistency (not like the hair serum which is goopy). I have nearly used 3/4 of the bottle and all you need is about 5-6 drops to cover your face.
Overall, I don’t know if its worth the money but I do like it. Will I buy it again? Maybe, If I get a good deal in CCO 🙂 . I am going to post the details of the product below from their website, so check it out.
