For as long as I can remember, my mom has been an Estee Lauder fan. While some people dislike the dated packaging, it feels normal and comfortable to me. Rifling through her makeup collection as a child, I recognized the difference between its quality and that of its lower end counterparts. Nobody can dispute that Estee Lauder makes some high quality makeup. I have a little collection of it, myself. I've only recently started using some products from their skin care range. I still don't use anything but drugstore cleanser (I just can't justify spending loads on something that I can get for so much cheaper which gives me the same result). I also still use my Lancome Bi-Facil eye makeup remover, but recently I have started with Estee Lauder's Take It Away Total Makeup Remover.
The product details:
It removes every bit of makeup from your face. That was the main draw for me--not having to use a separate remover or extra cleanser for my face. I need about five pumps or so to cover my entire face and I just apply it to dry skin and massage. It melts the makeup off your face and since it is water based, it doesn't leave you feeling oily or heavy. I must warn anybody that is sensitive to scents, though, that this product is extremely fragrant. It is citrusy, as Estee Lauder promises, but the first time I applied it I felt like I had been kicked in the face with a lemon. After the initial shock, it didn't bother me. This is still only the first step in any skincare regime. I follow, usually, with a cream based cleanser (as my skin is so dry). After washing my face, I use Estee Lauder's Perfectly Clean Fresh Balancing Lotion.
