Harsh weather, sunny days, air-conditioner and rainy days, we’ve all been through it. Many of us don’t take into consideration how our skin reacts to the weather and we would just go about our days. When I’ve gotten the chance to try out some of the Estee Lauder products I’ve been wanting to get my hands on I was thrilled! I managed to grab hold of the Estee Lauder Advance Night Micro Cleansing Balm & Cleansing Foam.
When Estee Lauder came out with their Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion, I was really happy and managed to try it out in the 75ml and I could say this was a very promising product. Then when le-sis started on the Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair Synchornized Recovery Complex and let me try some, I had to get my very own too! (Currently on the second bottle. #holygrail)
So when they came out with the Advance Night Micro Cleansing Balm and Cleansing Foam, I figured, what a great combination to add into my skincare routine! And now, I have them in my hands all thanks to #sephoraSG and #EsteeLauder
I’ve also gotten the Estee Lauder Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Energy Mist. Now Nutritious is another range which is my love and my favourite. So much to talk and rave about them, but i’ll only be talking about the Mist today.
First I’ll start with the Estee Lauder Advance Night Micro Cleansing Balm.
Kudos to packaging!
I know I’ve always hated tubs/jars as I would need to stick my finger in and my germ-phobia would start kicking in and thoughts running wild in my mind on how i’ve just contaminated my product and now bacteria and germs are going to grow in it. BUT, I also understand jars can be quite handy and pretty AND, not to mention, quite sturdy. A solution to this? A spatula..
Cleansing balms are not new and they have been around for quite some time, in fact, I’ve tried a few hence I’m excited to see how this fairs.
Cleansers have been a huge part of my regime and I hope everyone takes this seriously. LOL
“Removes makeup and impurities, including pollution, as it purifies deep within skin’s surface to improve your overall healty look.”
The Micro Cleansing Balm has a very sturdy packaging and it looks pretty classy on my vanity table.
According to Estee Lauder, these cleanser are formulated without stripping your natural oils and protective barriers. Micro-purying and Micro-revitalizing they say.
What I love about this is that the light weight balm melts into a silky cleansing oil as your massage over your skin. Then added with water, it turns into a milky emulsion that rinses off easily.
Even with the thickest, heaviest, waterproof makeup. This has proven it.
You don’t get a tight feeling out of it and as someone who suffers from Rosacea and sensitive skin, I can say that this thing definitely calms my skin down and eases the redness.

Next would be the Advance Night Micro Cleansing Foam,
Most people wouldn’t judge or evaluate much on Cleanser, they will just grab whatever they can see or feel like. Some may even buy according to what they feel is cleaner. I’ve got a few friends who buys deep cleansing cleansers just so they can feel their face is tight and the tighter they feel, they cleaner they think it is. Remember, that means you are stripping your natural oils off and it’s too dry.
This Micro Cleansing Foam is creamy and although it doesn’t lather up into soap and bubbles like many other cleanser do, it has a minimal foam and cleanses well. Removing any toxin, impurities and makeup residue. This also helps to prepare for your next skincare step regime – Advance Night Repair, which would absorb into your skin better.
Tube cleansers are the easiest and it’s a creamy white cleanser, rinses easy and leaving your skin feeling clean, soft and refreshed.
I’ve only been using this during the night time and I love how Camomile and Lavender is in this cleanser which makes skincare much pleasant and aromatic blend just takes it to another level.
The scent for both Advance Night Micro Cleansing Balm and Micro Cleansing Foam has been very mild and pleasant. It’s not strong and it sort of has a milky baby powdery scent to it.
Finally, a mist I’ve been enjoying and carrying around.
I’ve been using the Radiant Creme for the past 6 months and it’s my favourite night cream so far. So the mist was something that I was looking forward wondering what this would do.
This is a lightweight mist that can refresh or hydrate your skin. Similar to the entire Nutritious Vitality8 range, the mist is infused with Poemgranate8 Complex to give that extra hydration and radiant.
It comes with a standard mist head that sprays evenly on the face. I’ve been carrying this in my bag and if i need a boost of hydration I’d give it a go. It’s a fairy small size at 30ml which is handy and can fit into any bag/clutch easily.
This is perfect and can be used under or over makeup. #triedandtested
There’s many more to come and for now I can say Estee Lauder has not disappointed me and has once again impressed me.
