My Imperfect Skin with Estee Lauder NEW! Perfectionist Pro Rapid Firm + Lift Treatment

"You have good genes!" 
"You're Chinese, that's why you have good skin!"

As much as I want to nod with all those compliments, I just want to say: "Yes, I thank my genes for good skin but I also work hard in taking care of them!'

As much as I would like to thank my great grandparents down to my parents for my good skin genes (as most of you would say), I'd like to let you know that you don't see the part where I invest and really take care of my skin every morning and evening!  When I was pregnant and breastfeeding a few years back, all my skincare products were put on hold and I actually saw how my skin sags, how wrinkles start to show up and how dry and old I look!  It was those 2 years I realized --- my skincare products ACTUALLY WORK!  I just don't see the result instantly but they really work.  

Mark my words!

That's why I am pointing my fingers to YOU right now, reading this post to invest and spend time on taking care of your skin!  It doesn't have to be fancy and pricey, just do YOU, whatever works for you!  As for me, I've said it so many times over my #AMWIGStories on which particular skincare brand that actually gives me good result --- fast!  One of the brand I mentioned (almost in loop) is Estee Lauder.

And the brand kept on improving and making new and more improved products and one of them is the Estee Lauder NEW! Perfectionist Pro Rapid Firm + Lift Treatment   (Php4,715.00 for 30ml, Php6,670 for 50ml)
The new force to fight gravity. This high-speed formula delivers visible improvement to multiple facial zones—along the jawline, cheeks, around eyes and even stubborn laugh lines—for an overall natural, more lifted and youthful look.
Instantly: Your skin is radiant, hydrated, rejuvenated.

This product is said to make your skin smooth, plumped and baby-soft in just 3 days while you see more lifted look in 2 weeks!

I find it a bit too early to tell but I gave it a try anyway and here's my in-depth thoughts and review.

Let's start with the packaging, the product is housed in a pump packaging which I like because I don't need to touch the product.  I just get what I need and the rest are kept and tucked safe inside.  The downside?  I just don't know how much product is left or when should I start panic-buying.

With just 2-3 pumps, I find it is the perfect amount to be used on both face and neck.  Yes, you read it right, NECK is included when it comes to skincare.

This serum comes with a powerful concentration of Acetyle Hexapeptide-8 which is a custom-designed rebuilding peptide that can help penetrate into the skin quickly. This ingredient helps skin boost its natural collagen and elastin and help strengthen its vital support network.

Too scientific right?  But the most important thing is, does it work?
I tried this product for 2 weeks.  I actually took time in massaging the product with Heart-shape motion as seen on photo below then lastly on the neck area.

I have to admit, I got a bit lazy, the product says it's best to use day and night, I only got the time to apply this at night time so the result may vary!

AMW says ---

  • On first use, there's no downtime, no skin itchiness, redness or rashes.  I guess I'm really used to using Estee Lauder skincare products.
  • My skin felt hydrated, moisturized immediately!  I actually skipped using moisturizer at night just to test this product out.  I can actually use this alone and skin feels plump and hydrated all throughout the day.
  • On first week, I don't see much difference on my skin in terms of being lifted or more defined.  What I noticed is that my skin is less flaky and I have this natural glow.
  • On the 2nd week, my skin is firmer and softer and I like how my skin looks bright and glowing even if I have been stressed for some time (dad hospitalized issues etc...).  
  • I don't really see the lines or wrinkles reduced for now, I don't expect miracle since I don't use this religiously as stated in instruction box.  But I definitely see the difference - in a good way!

Before and After Application
This was how my skin look immediately after application.
See the plumpness and glow?

Please take note that you have to use sunscreen when you use such product to protect your skin from further damage.  There's no point in investing heavily on skincare and not using sunscreen!  I have to say it again: Sunscreen is the best anti-aging product so use them often!

After 2 weeks, I am starting to inject back my moisturizer and other skincare products together with this product.  I can't wait to update this post soon so do check back this post!

Overall, I am happy with this product even recommended this to my Mother-in-Law who is very loyal to ANR line from Estee Lauder!

How do you like the product?

Do you think it's something you would invest on?
