I am really excited to tell you about this new product from Estee Lauder as it was originally developed for the Asian market. Since we are becoming more and more obsessed with Asian skincare, it is set to be released here in the UK in July 2014. Check out the Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment. Is it an essence? Is it a lotion? No! It’s an essence-in-lotion!
I am totally up for this! I love having a skincare ritual and really enjoy including extra steps to improve the efficacy of my products on my skin. The Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion is a first of its kind “essence-in-lotion” that strengthens skin’s foundation.
The product is inspired by extremophiles which are natural organisms capable of surviving extreme conditions and able to self-repair cellular damage. To encourage our skin to act like extremophiles, Estee Lauder are employing the transformative power of fermentation in an exclusive Micro-Nutrient Bio-Ferment (a blend of micronutrients, peptides and ferments) It uses the power of fermentation to “reset” the look of skin in a formula that absorbs easily to leave skin stronger and more resistant to signs of ageing.

Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion is a post cleansing, pre serum step, so think of it as a primer for your serum that will super-charge your skincare regime. Estee Lauder recommend using it before your Advance Night Repair serum although you can just slot this in before whatever you are currently using. I am so excited by this!
The texture is extraordinary. Super light and almost magically absorbent. I just popped a few drops into my palm and then pressed it into my skin. It instantly softens and vanishes at the same time! Also it has no fragrance so will be perfect for anyone with an aversion to scented products. I am quite literally obsessed already!
Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion costs £80 and is available from July 2014 at select London Estée Lauder counters. Stay tuned to esteelauder.co.uk for news.
