Many years ago I was introduced to this product by the mother of a female rugby player. She taught me how to use it and I had used it continuously until about 6 years ago. I have since tried other products and low and behold I am now using this again. I have NEVER found anything else that pleases me more and I regret the time I tried other products. I thought that it had been discontinued. I love the feel of the product and the feel of my skin after the use of the product. It is a wonderful base for applying any type of foundation. The aroma is pleasing and not overwhelming. It reminds me of being much younger, spring, and Boston. It is a great product as a general ongoing moisturizer and skin conditioner. I recommend it enthusiastically and completely.
Best For texture, complexion, moisture, sensitive skin, elasticity, shh eye cream
I have been a cosmetician for around 18 years. I have tried allll the brands over the years for moisturizers. I am a skin care addict! I have a sensitive skin and cannot tolerate certain ingredients and fragrances. Sometimes the new does not proceed the old. This formula and fragrance not only agrees with me, it does wonders for my skins texture and firmness and complexion! In one day I noticed a difference when I tried this at 18. Now I'm 46! I as well use this as an eye cream on the orbital bone area!!!!! I'm so glad you kept the formula and brought this back! Please do not Ever discontinue this product! Thank you!!!!
Best For under make up moisturizer, summer overnight moisturizing
I've been using Swiss Performing Extract for more than 20 years. I find it just light enough for under-makeup use and in the summer, it is my go-to face moisturizer that I use just before bedtime. The light fragrance is a classic that soothes and calms. I'd like to think that Swiss Performing Extract has played in role in preserving my youthful complexion. :)
Best For keeping skin moist and acting as a good foundation
I have been using Swiss Performing Extract for over 20 years and have brought members of my family on board with a gift of Swiss Performing Lotion, which they loved. I use this lotion after every face cleansing, It is my base for my Double Wear Light Foundation. It keeps my face dewy smooth during long days on the job. I live at the beach and manage boutique designer hotels there and my appearance is vital to my position as I am very visible throughout the day. With sun, sand, wind and salt water, I have found with Swiss Performing Extract, my skin does not dry out or have a wrinkled appearance at 78 years old. I am hooked on this product and hope that Estee Lauder never takes this lotion off the market. I religiously order this online regularly as I never want to run out. Thank you for years of satisfaction.
I have been using Estee Lauder's Swiss Performing Extract for over 25 years. I started this product in my early 20's and use it every day. The product helps my skin stay hydrated, not oily or heavy, and keeps my skin balanced. Whether it's a genetic makeup or simply the consistent use of this product, I am fortunate not to have wrinkles or those fine lines that come with aging. Swiss Performing Extract is so light that it can be used under any cosmetic product as a base or simply alone. Once you use it, it will become a daily necessity to a healthy face and skin.
My mother used this over the past 40 years and tried to get me to try it. But I went for the newer more expensive lines. When she died last August, everyone commented on her skin. She looked way younger than her 92 years. I came across her Swiss Performing Extract and decided to try it. Wow, what a difference it made. I have combination skin that is starting to droop and lose that natural dewy look, a few wrinkles here and there. After a weeks time, my pores diminished, my tone evened out and my skin looked incredible. This is a light weight serum like lotion that doesn't look oily or break me out. I won't use anything else, I should have listened to Mom a long time ago!
Best For people who want low maintenance skin care
I know there are always newer, more expensive products but this one is a keeper. I have always been told I look 20 years younger then I am - and I believe it is because I used this in my 20s and never changed. Something to do with the grapeseed oil maybe? I don't know.
Please do not ever discontinue this product.......its a great one.
I started using this product when I was 21 years old and my skin looked absolutely fabulous! Over the years, when I was trying to conserve money, I tried different products, but eventually came back to the Swiss Performing Extract. One thing, though, I noticed the scent was a bit different. Is it my imagination, or have they changed some of the ingredients?
I have been using this product since I was introduced to it by a neighbor in 1981, As a young bride I wanted to keep my skin looking as lovely as my neighbor's who was in her late 40's when I reached that age. I have been using it ever since and highly recommend it to all my friends or anyone who comments on my young, soft looking skin. Thank you for such a great product!!!
I can recommend this product in just that one word...WOW! If I were to choose a few words I would say "it feeds my thirsty skin and adds a youthful glow! It nourishes!" It makes my skin look so pretty!
Estée Lauder Swiss Performing Extract is the very best moisturizer out there for mature women with dry skin. I am sixty seven years old and have been using EL Swiss Performing Extract for at least 30 years. It is the only moisturizer I have ever found that blends into my dry skin smoothly. I always use it before adding my make up. I have always had lots of compliments on my complexion. I will never switch!!
I have been using this product for 25 years now. It's still the only moisturizer I'll use. I don't know if its the Swiss Performing Extract or good genes, but people don't believe it when I tell them I'm 50!
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.
