Beauty Review: Verite Calming Fluid by Estee Lauder

Product Tag Line:

Helps sensitive skin feel totally at peace

Product Profile in short and the Promise:
(as described on Estee Lauder web-site)
• repairs the moisture barrier.
• protects skin from environmental damage and visible signs of premature aging.
• improves skin's elasticity and firmness and helps repair the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

What’s Inside:

TriLipid Complex and Anti-oxidants

Close-up on Active Ingredients:
Phenyl Trimethicone - silicone fluid, prevents foaming, skin-conditioning agent - occlusive
Pentylene Glycol solvent, skin conditioning agent
Cyclopentasiloxane- skin-conditioning agent - emollient, solvent
Glycerin - humectant
Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract – green tea extract, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic
Centella Asiatica Extrac - Hydrocotyl extract, potent anti-oxidant, skin contioner
Ceramide 3- certamides are naturally occurring skin lipids that are major components of the skin’s outer structure. Ceramides are essential for functioning of skin’s protective barrier, skin’s water-retention capacity as well as for cell regulation.
Cholesterol - one of the constituents of the lipid matrix responsible for skin’s protective barrier, stabilizer, emollient, and water-binding agent
Phospholipids- type of lipid, essential to the function of skin cell membranes, helps to maintain skin protective barrier
Aluminium Starch Octenylsuccinate- thickening agent
Caffeine– anti-inflammatory, relieves skin redness
Butylene Glycol– humectant (attracts moisture to skin)
Isocetyl Alcohol- skin-conditioning agent - emollient, viscosity increasing agent
Acrylates/ C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer- film forming agent, emulsion stabilizer, viscosity increasing agent
Chamomila Recutita - matricaria chamomilla, type of chamomile, has anti-inflamatory, antseptic properties, also used for skin-conditioning and toning
Glyceryl Laurate- skin-conditioning agent – emollient, emulsifying egent
Isostearic Acid - fatty acid, binder, emulifier
Tromethamine- fragrance ingredient; pH adjuster;
Xanthan Gum- skin-conditioning, stabilizer, thickener

The combination of anti-ageing anti-oxidants, soothing ingredients and ingredients that help to rebuild skin’s barrier function is really impressing. I was actually surprised to find a couple occlusives in this product. It does not at all feel occlusive.


Texture: white creamy fluid
Smell: no smell
Method of Use: Comes in a pump dispenser and is applied AM and PM. Followed up with a moisturizer.

Wonderful product for sensitive skin! It not only soothes sensitivity SOS but also provides anti-ageing and anti-oxidant benefits. Anti-ageing products are quite rare for sensitive skin because they are mostly too intensive and cause irritation.
I love this product! It is immediately absorbed into the skin. If your skin felt burning or irritated, it delivers immediate relief and your skin feels soft and balanced. With regular and constant use redness subsides and skin looks smoother and healthier. Attention: Even though it says “fluid” on this product it acts more like a serum and needs to be followed up by a moisturizer. When I first bought it, I made the mistake of assuming that it will also keep my skin moisturized – I was wrong! Soon I was running to the store for Verite Moisture Relief Cream
