I have used this product more than 5 years. I ran out of products about 4 months ago and was unable to purchase more due to financial reasons. Well, let me tell you this, my face feels awful without it. I use the intensive lifting cream,softening cream and hydrating creme cleanser. Being out of these products has made my face dry,droopy and increased wrinkles. I decided that I don't care if my lights and water get turned off I'm getting these products today. I just can't live without them. Thank You Estee Lauder for such magnificent products.
I have been very pleased with this lotion. Since I have been using Estee Lauder products for years I was expecting quality, and I was not disappointed. My skin feels soft and refreshed after using. I have some sun damage on my face, so I have to be cautious, but I definitely recommend this.
Best For Hydrating, Smoothing Lines, refreshing skin
As my skin gets easily dried out, I generally stay away from toners. I recieved a deluxe sample of Intensive Softening Lotion with most recent order, and was initially pleased. Today, a rough day for my skin, pushed me from pleased to amazed. It is very hot and humid right now, I began the day with my normal skin routing, but after a short walk with my dog my skin was in need of refreshing, so I just splashed it with some water. After some cooking and cleaning around the house, my skin was again in desprate need of refreshing, thankfully this time instead of a drying water splash I remembered that I had this toning lotion. I gave my face a generous swipe, and it was perfect.My skin was refreshed, but soft and glowing, and ready for a fresh layer of moisturizer.
The RN softening lotion is a marvelous skin prep for my daily skin regime. It is the perfect follow up after washing my skin. It makes it feel remarkably soft and moist. The serums and moisturizers glide right on over it. I love it. Being 58 and living in the desert, toners and other skin preps leave my skin too dry and tight. The RN gives me back a moist dewy feeling after cleansing. Thank you EL!
I absolutely love love love this product. I suffer from eczema and have use several different toners that have always burned my face until now. Re-Nutriv softening lotion has helped to keep my skin soft and reduced the eczema breakouts and as a bonus has helped with my cystic acne. I highly recommend this product for anyone with any skin type.
Best For those who want moist comfortable calm skin
I just finished up the bottle with the old-style lid (smaller in diameter). I have a special closet in the vanity area of my bthrm in which I keep extra Renutriv items in my special EL box! It is good to have new, spare Renutriv items when you run out (at a time the dept stores are not open)! I took a new lotion, and unwrapped the box. Right away, I noticed the new, larger-diameter lid. When I applied the lotion, I noticed the most lovely fragrance - It smelled so good, I wanted to put it on all over. Instead, I applied the Renutriv Body Creme on arms and legs - I discovered the body creme smooths out crepiness on arms and legs - incredible product! By the way, the Renutriv Hand Creme does the same thing for hands! Back to the lotion. The lotion smells wonderful; is soothing on red, irritated skin; soft; moisturizing; and does not burn, sting, or irritate. This is a lovely product which does an exceptional job on the skin. This is the only lotion I use.
Thinking of this product as a toner is, perhaps, a bit of a misunderstanding. I think of it as the first step in moisturization. It does exactly what it says it is: It softens the skin after cleansing. It leaves your skin glowing without the tightness and is a great "base" for serum. I've seen it written up in several blogs because of the superior ingredients.
I learned about this product through the "Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me" book. This product does not contain any drying ingredients - very important at my age. I use it after liquid cleanser and my skin looks and feels smooth. Very gentle, very effective. I feel the price is reasonable.
BTW: the gold flecks don't do anything for your skin - just makes it look pretty. Okay by me!
I first got this product as a sample included with another purchase. I like all the Re-Nutriv products I've tried and this is no exception. I use this solely as a hand lotion (although I think it was developed as a toner) and it leaves such a fresh, light scent and makes my hands so smooth. I like to use it at night right before bedtime or in the day right before leaving the house so I leave with smooth hands. I also carry a small sample in my purse so it is with me for touch-up softness.
I have faithfully used Re-Nutriv Intensive Softening Lotion this current winter season. It keeps my complexion soft, smooth and the added gold flecks give me a slight sparkle (which I love). Putting a dab on my ears has kept them in the pink during the most harshest weather.
I shall continue to use this product throughout the year and I highly recommend it for everyone.
This is nice, has a strange texture, not greasy but not as thin as most toners, and with a fine mist of gold particles throughout it. It has a platinum color to it plus with the gold flecks, it really matches the Re-Nutriv packaging.
I needed to get rid of my old toner, so I did some online diging and read many reivews, I had discovered that this one had very good reviews, I am a 45 years old woman and it looked good for my skin type, I bought it. I have bought several Estee Lauder products in the past and very happy about them. For some reason, I haven't see a super result for this one yet, I would say I am not quite sure, still in trial period.
