As you may know, one of my favourite luxe department store skincare (and makeup) brands is without Estee Lauder, so I am always extra excited when new products are launched. Today I'd like to share with you the newly launched Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Firming Sculpting Oil-in-Creme Infusion.

This moisturiser is an extra rich moisturising creme that contains 20% oil to help add extra nutrients to dry skin and help break the cycle of dryness and re-ignite the skin's natural lifting power with an intensive infusion of deep hydrators and ultra restorative lipids. The creme also helps the skin boost its natural collagen and elastin to reveal a more sculpted, defined look and restrengthens the skin's protective barrier.

The creme contains among other coconut, avocado, olive, lady thistle, mango, macadamia nut, jojoba, almond grape seed, soybean and sunflower seed oils, which combined helps add intense moisture to the skin, all while also giving it nutrients and strengthening the skins barrier helping it to retain moisture. The Advanced Lifting Complex in the creme also helps support the skin's natural collagen and elastin, so the skin over time will have a firmer and more lifted look.

The moisturiser does not contain SPF, which some may see as a negative, but personally I don't mind, as I have several days where I hardly go outside, as my little baby, due to his strong medications, simply cannot be in the sun - and so on sunny those days we stay indoors where possible, and so I actually prefer not to wear SPF on those days as I feel it always clogs up my pores. Then I'd rather add SPF on top on the days where I do go outside in the sun.

I don't exactly have dry skin, rather my skin is combination, and actually it is even greasier during the warmer summer months. So I have also found that this moisturiser is simply too heavy and rich for my skin to use during the day, but I'm loving it as a night cream now and again, and as we sadly head towards autumn and winter, my skin will no doubt love the intense formula.

But what I actually like most at the moment is that the Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Firming Sculpting Oil-in-Creme Infusion can also be used as a moisture mask to give your skin a weekly dose of intensive hydration. A thin layer left on the skin for about 10 minutes before tissuing it off will leave your skin feeling so incredibly soft, plumb, hydrated and glowing. Well worth it.

At RRP: $150 / 50ml, this is not exactly a cheap moisturiser, but if you have dry skin you will without a doubt adore this cream. For now I enjoy using it as a luxurious moisture mask.

Available from Estee Lauder Counters in Myer and David Jones and select pharmacies, and Estee Lauder Online
