I have been purchasing the Re-Nutriv softening lotion for several years and I highly recommend it. I use it at night after my cleansing routine and it leaves my face feeling soft. One bottle lasts me a year. I order it in November every year and Estee Lauder always sends me free large travel samples of other high end product to try. I always look forward to trying out the samples every year. The samples aren't tiny either. They are oversized travel sizes. I will continue to purchase Estee Lauder products.
as autumn/winter is approaching, I have just switched to the Re-NUTRIV line products. this softener is a start...however, I have only been using it for less than 2 weeks, can't tell if it really delivery the promise yet, I only found it not moisture enough, I would add a layer of hydrating toner from another brand before the next step (ANR serum - I have been using ANR for about 6 years now, always love it). let's see how it works after 28 - 40 days - normally that's the average skin renewal circle.
First time I bought this product last year, It was a gift for my Mom. She said she really liked it. This summer I bought 4 more to gave my sisters and myself. It was the greatest toner I have ever had.
The Re-Nutriv Softening Lotion is the single must have product -- it prepares my skin to easily absorb my serums and my other skin care products. It only takes a small amount to cover my face. It soothes and softens my dry, taut skin and has a brightening effect that I love, especially around my eyes.
I have Rosacea and was very skeptical about using Estee Lauder's ReNutriv line. I tried the softening lotion first and it works GREAT! Then I used the ReNutriv cleanser and had no problems. Today I use both products as well as the Advanced Night time repair serum. My skin looks amazing! Redness has subsided and my skin feels better than ever. No dryness, no irritation and no redness. From what I understand, the gold flakes in the softening lotion are used to calm/soothe the redness. I highly recommend this line!!!
I feel it did work after I used Re-Nutriv one month, which I haven't ever had such an experience as I used other product of kinds.It is amazingly right for me. It does make my skin soft and I feel good when my skin feels a little bit warm while I pat it on my face. But it doesn't make my skin allegy at all.
I was looking for something that would make my skin soft and supple as well as give me back my youthful radiance. After using it for only a week, I can notice the difference. It smells good too. Am loving it.
I was very disappointed when EL discontinued the toner lotion in the pink bottle. The current "one size fits all" in the green bottle was very drying to my already dry skin. I use a few items in the Re-Nutriv line, so I decided to give a try to the Softening Lotion...and I was not disappointed. It is gentle with a soft, subtle scent. If you are looking for a replacement product fro the discontinued toning lotion, I think this one is worth a try!
This is my very first time reviewing a product . I just can't pass the opportunity to say that this product is the best thing I ever used on my face. I give the product a 5 star and would stock up on this in care they discontinue. Give it a try and you'll fall in love with this softening lotion.
