I recommend this product
best hydrating cream ever
Date:January 16, 2012
I have dry skin, which tends to flake if not hydrated properly. I have used Estee Lauder products for 24 years (since I was 16) - I am now 40 and was having difficulty finding a cream for such "dry" skin. I returned to Estee Lauder after trying several other brands (high end as well) per recommendations - none worked and worse led to breakouts and blemishes (in addition to dry, my skin is fair and sensitive). I tried EL hydrationist - max moisture- and it worked immediately! Fabulously beautiful is all I can say about the skin texture and tone. No flakiness; no oiliness; nothing "heavy" - it is a thick cream that disappears on contact. It hydrates immediately. It is fantastic. Definitely keeps my skin looking younger than my years. Thumbs up+++ use it!
Best For Hydrating, Normal/Combination Skin, Smoothing Lines, Dry Skin
I am 36 years old with normal/combo skin and have been searching for a moisturizer for YEARS. And I mean over 15. Left alone, my skin is relatively normal, but a little on the dry side. You'd think it would be easy for me to moisturize, but it's the most difficult thing for me to do. Moisturizers either turn my face into an oil slick, or dry me to the point of flaking. My biggest problem has always been to find one that doesn't cause blackheads on and around my nose. With Hydrationist, my search has ended. I don't use any one line exclusively and am willing to try anything. I thought I'd give Estee Lauder a try, as I haven't used it in a while. I am SO glad I did. This moisturizers plumps up my cheeks, gives me amazing hydration without any oiliness or sheen, and has not caused any blackheads or other breakouts. I am truly amazed. Almost shocked! My search is honestly over. Thank you Estee Lauder!!!
The hydrationist is perfect for me since Im combination skin. I usually use it in autum and winter when my skin is dry. It is perfect!!! Really hydrationist. This is the third one I used. and I will use them in the future too!!
I have been using Hydrationist for a couple of years (before that, I used Resilience Lift for many years), both AM & PM. I use retin-A every other night along with the Hydrationist and have had great results. I told my sister about it and now she is using it too.
My skin is ok until November, when the dry and cold air outside, and dry and hot air from heating inside causes itching, flaking all around. Hydra Bright did the trick before.. it is so moisturizing that I put in on top of the serum at night and my skin looks hydrated in the morning. With hydrationist... not so. Definitely not as good. I noticed it missed some ingredients such as squalene. Not sure if that explains the difference but I definitely feel it. In fact, I am having to look for another EL moisturizer... I wish they bring back Hydra Bright!
Best For Dry Skin, fine lines/wrinkles, youthful glow
I have now tried several of EL moisturizers including the Revitalizing Lift and Time Zone for both day and night and I truly like the glow that Hydrationist gives me. And my skin feels so much smoother and supple!! I will definitely be using Hydrationist this winter, too!
Love this product, usually I purchase in-store but this time I ordered it online. Product seems a little watery compared to what it normally is. I plan on taking it to the store to get their opinion on it.
Best For Hydrating, Wrinkle Reduction, Brightening, Normal/Combination Skin, Smoothing Lines, All Skintypes, Dry Skin, Lifting/Firming, not too heavy
I've been using another EL moisterizer but as summer approached I discovered they were a bit too heavy in the intense heat. With temps already well over triple digits and will hit close to 120 degrees, you have to go lighter with what you apply to your face, or anywhere else on the body for that matter. This, Hydrationist, is wonderful, perfect for such hot weather. I still get all of the moisture, hydration, line reduction, smooth skin, etc. that I get with my other products but without the breakouts or too heavy feeling. For people who don't live in such temps this may be hard to understand but trust me, you always have to reduce everything that you apply. If not you will feel suffocated, LOL! I'll admit that last year i had bought another brand (I should have known better) but it was the brand that keeps winning all the beauty awards. I gave it away after just two months and this is now my perfect 'go to' summer moisterizer. Love it!!!!!
I first started using the EL makeup line, but a couple years ago I first used their skincare line. I've been using this moisturizer for 6 months now, and I am so happy with it! It does give my skin an even skintone, it has reduced my blemishes (I'm a teen and these tend to pop up quite frequently) and it even makes my skin less oily in my T zone! Thank you so muche Estée Lauder!
I have used Hydrationist for Dry skin for a month as part of a kit, and it is impressive. It is not greasy, gives you the smoothest skin, and a soft focus effect that is great. I have combination to oily skin prone to acne, and this did not break me out but, in combination with the ANR at night and Idealist daytime, cleared up my skin and made it look so much better. I had been using an inexpensive product for a month, and I thought it was doing a great job, but then I used this, and saw how much better this makes my skin look. One of the main ingredients is a polymer that provides this "soft focus" and it's awesome! The fact that a person with oily skin not particularly in need of hydration can use this and get good results is amazing. As to the scent, it's hardly noticeable.
Best For Hydrating, Brightening, Normal/Combination Skin, Smoothing Lines, All Skintypes, Dry Skin, very soft and touchable, compliment getter
When EL says "Maximum Moisture" - THIS is "Truth in Advertising!" This is an excellent product and one I don't ever want to be without! With EL skincare products, my skin is more lovely than it was when I was 20! Thanks, EL, for making the very best and highest quality products on the market
I have used this product since 2006 and since it is over my budget the less than 2 oz container extended use up to 4 months by sparingly just put 6 dots of it on my face everyday and that little amount do magic with my crow lines and wrinkles. I am over 50 years old but after applying it, it makes me look like I am in my late 20's. I have used different moisturizers and this is the only one that is compatible with my skin chemicals. Its like magic, all my friends are wondering why I look so much younger than they are.
This cream is wonderful, my new favorite moisturizer. It feels so good going on, and it absorbs quickly. It doesn't make my face look greasy or oily like some moisturizers can. I titled this review "Luxurious" because that's the best word I can think of to describe how this cream feels when using it. Love this product!
I have used this product since it was called Hydra-Complete and I love it! In the winter I use it as a Night creme over ANR and ANR eye. It gives dry "thirsty" skin a deep down feeling of moisture but is not like putting butter on your face like so many dry skin cremes I use Day Wear in the morning and this at night. The lotion is great in the summer under make-up!
For me keeping my face hydrated at night. I use Day Wear for daytime protection from sun exposure. Both products prevent future ageing. It feels very creamy and hydrating. That's why I keep ordering it over and over again. It shows!
I love this moisturizer for several reasons: it is reasonably priced compare to other Estee Laudee moisturizers for older skin; it really does moisturize my skin all day - i have very dry skin and when use this cream my skins feels so much better; it does not make my eyes water like almost every other moistuirizer does; i like the smell and it stays that way all day.
I use this with CP Perfectionist - best combo for me and i dont have to worry about re-moisturing in the middle of the day as i do with quite a few other more expensive moisturizers
I added Hydrationist cream for dry skin to my skincare regime because I wanted creamy moisturizing during the winter months. I layer it over Advanced Night Repair and Perfectionist and wake up to velvety skin. Hydrationist feels so good -- it's refreshing, creamy, and sinks right into those dry spots. I'll use it year round to be sure -- looking forward to feeling the comfort of it in the summertime as well. (The smell is light and clean if anyone's wondering!)
