If your skin is dry and your current moisturizer isn't cutting it, try this one. It is amazingly moisturizing, doesn't break me out, absorbs quickly, and smells delightful. I use it at night and love the results. Not sure I'll need it as the weather warms up (and my skin gets a little oilier), but it's definitely found a permanent home in my arsenal of superior skin care products.
Story!! When I was little I would go into my grandmothers bathroom and use all the Serums she had and this was one of them! I thought since my grandmother had such beautiful skin I better use this too! So I would sneak in her bathroom and use her Estée Lauder products (a girl is never to young to start early to prevent aging and wrinkles ;).... And I remember the smell! It ALL smelled so good and it was so smooth going onto your face! I love all the products! Oh yeah... Now when I go into my bathroom, my 7 year old daughter has to do the same thing! She says "mom can I try some?" Me with a smile "of course!"
I started with Swiss Performing Extract product more than 30 years ago. I am now 62, still using Estee Lauder creams. I have never used anything else on my face. My skin looks wonderful and 15 years younger; just ask my husband and coworkers. What this company and Evelyn Lauder stand for is remarkable. I am a breast cancer survivor and loyal to Estee Lauder products and thankful to Evelyn Lauder for her love and dedication to women all over the world. Recognizing her legacy and thankful to the medical personnel at the Evelyn Lauder Breast Cancer Center. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Thank You.
I am happy that it does not have parabens. Bottle has a surprisingly wide opening, lotion is runny, but I got used to this, I think a pump or a plug with a smaller opening would help. I like its smell. Use it morning and night, I feel that it keeps my skin moist and smooth. I am really happy with product!
I grew up on Swiss Performing Extract, and even though my skin is now mature, it is probably my favorite skin care product. It is the one beauty item I would want with me if I were stranded on a desert island.
I appreciate that I received the item very soon after I ordered it as an added bonus.
This lightweight and smooth texture lotion has been a favorite of my mine for a while. I use it daily immediately after shaving and all over my face. I am instantly hydrated without feeling heavy or oily. My skin looks smoother, clearer and seems to be more toned and lines and wrinkles appear greatly diminished. I am delighted to find it online since sometimes it sells out in stores. My friend Philip Douglas is a Celebrity Stylist and he has a Swiss Performing Extract in his Professional Case he takes on location and photo shoots. It's just that GOOD!
I remember when Swiss Performing Extract (SPE) first came out many years ago. I liked the performance and fragrance, bought only a couple of bottles over a few years, then got away from it. Recently, I decided I have had enough of paying those TRIPLE-DIGIT PRICES for those modern-day cremes 'OUT THERE' which do little to nothing.
After all these years, I am 'downsizing.' I bought a big bottle of SPE and am, again, very pleased with its performance. I have dry, dehydrated, 'mature' (ewww!) skin and was happily surprised that my skin stayed moisturized all day. I am SICK AND TIRED of complex, complicated skincare routines (seems like 6 to 12+ items 'one needs' - are they serious!?). NO MORE!!!
Another reason I bought SPE is that I read that Mrs. Estee Lauder had this product made for her, and I understand it was her favorite moisturizer! I decided she would NEVER put anything on her face which did not perform.
I have 'rediscovered' SPE and LOVE it! I use a cleanser, toner, a rich serum, eye creme, and SPE. Just 5 products - better than the 13+ items I currently have (TOO MANY to take on an airplane too)!
I very much like that SPE also provides 'slip' on skin surface so foundation goes on much easier. Modern-day products brag that they ''sink in' (providing a MATTE finish - talk about aging!). They leave my skin DRY (also dissipates and dries it out even more during the day) and causes foundation to 'grab' which makes for dry, AGING (another 'ewww!), uneven application. Of course, a matte finish is good for oilier skins. My review addresses dry type skins.
Oh, buy the BIG bottle - more economical!

I have been using this for years and never ever want to be with out it. I have had many complements on my complexion over the years. From friends and even strangers. Once in Red Lobster the waitress asked me what I used and I told her. She wrote it down and said she was getting some after work. I always tell them the same thing, that I use Swiss Performing Extract and hope that Estee Lauder never discontinues it! It is WONDERFUL. By the way I am 80 years YOUNG. .
I really appreciate that Estee Lauder still keeps this product in its line. I love the milky texture of the lotion, and how it glides on the skin. I also notice that it seems to smooth out some troubling lines, making even my neck appear smoother. Please keep making this product. Thank you!
This moisturizer was recommended to me by a friend over a year ago when I first started using this product. I have been fully satisfied using Swiss Performing Extract and I have received many compliments as to how beautiful my complexion is. I understand this is one of the first moisturizers in the Estee Lauder line. There is a lady that I know who is now 90 and has been using Swiss Performing Extract for decades. Her skin is radiant and I would say even flawless for a women her age. I did receive some samples of the Age Reversing Line products with my last purchase. I have been using these "beneath" my Swiss Performing Extract and I must say I have noticed a significant difference in my skin just in the past week as fine lines have vanished! I especially like the Advanced Time Zone Age Reversing Line/Wrinkle Eye Cream. Overall, I would say Estee offers the best performing skin care products on the market. Thanks to all the good people at Estee Lauder for offering their Special Offers with full size samples (that last not just a day) which is so necessary to determine which product works the best for you!
I remember when this product first came out many years ago. I tried it then and loved it. Don't know why I stopped using it but I did. I came back to it about 2 years ago and won't use anything else ever again. It's the only moisturizer I use. Love it!!!!!!
I remember the time when a small bottle of Swiss Performing Extract was in every gift with purchase. It was exceptional then and is now. This product is thicker than a lotion and glides onto your face. Best of all, it contains collagen which is a proven line smoother. Well, maybe best of all, is the price. This is an exceptional product at an exceptionally price. It will hydrate your skin, smooth out fine lines and act as a fabulous base for your makeup. The design of the bottle and the light pine scent makes this an excellent moisturizer for the man in your life. A word about the scent-it is very light and evaporates quickly.
I started using this because my mom, who looks years younger than she is, started using this in the 80s. It works great and has a pleasant scent. It sinks in immediately and is compatible with makeup. In winter, I use it under moisturizer for extra protection. It also seems to have cleared up a couple of adult zits. PLEASE do not discontinue this! Please!
I have been using this Swiss Extract I think since it came out on the market. I just love the way your skin feels. And it doesn't have a strong smell. I just hope you never discontinue this product. I use to use your splash away before the Swiss. But you discontinued it and replaced it with another product which I bought. I don't like it doesn't lather up and feel smooth. I threw it away and replaced it with another brand which still isn't that good but better then your replacement. I wish you would bring back Splash Away.
I had been looking for a moisturizer to use during the winter months for years. I've tried many other EL products (as well as other brands), and although they were good they didn't seem to moisturize my thirsty skin during the dead of winter. I finally decided to try Swiss Performing Extract. OH MY GOSH, it's EXACTLY what I had been looking for! Winters here are very dry, very cold and very windy. This product soothes and softens, and it doesn't feel greasy on my combination skin. I also love the herbal scent. I use this one at night over the Advanced Night Repair serum. Please don't ever discontinue this!
I have used this since I was 18 years old. Good skin comes from taking care of it over the years. You can never be too young to start using a product. I used it until recently when I switched try something new. I am now 56 years old and I get compliments on my complexion. After using a different brand I can tell my skin does not feel the same. I am going back to this and will not change again! A little goes a long way and it is gentle on the skin. I feel that I get what I pay for with this product.
