Beauty Review: Verite Moisture Relief Cream by Estee Lauder

Product Tag Line:

Extra help for sensitive skin that tends to be dry
Product Profile in short and the Promise:
(as described on Estee Lauder web-site)
• Helps rebuild moisture defense barrier.
• Special anti-irritants help reduce the appearance of redness common to sensitive skin.
• Leaves skin feeling silky, cushioned.

What’s Inside:
Don’t know! Let’s see!

Close-up on Active Ingredients:
Butylene Glycol
Hexylene Glycol Petrolatum
Cetearyl Alcohol
Pentylene Glycol
Isostearyl Neopentanoate
Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract – Green Tea Extract
Centella Asiatica Extract - Hydrocotyl Extract
Sodium Hyaluronate
Ceramide 3
Cetearyl Glucoside
Hydrogenated Lecithin
Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria)
Methyl Glucose
Stearic Acid
Sodiaum Citrate
Titanium Dioxide

The ingredients list resembles Verite Calming Fluid. As I can see, Verite Moisture Relief Cream contains the same soothing/anti-inflammatory extracts and anti-oxidants like Green Tea Extract, Caffeine, Hydrocotyl Extract, Matricaria Chamomilla (type of chamomile). In terms of keeping your skin moisturized, the cream contains great ingredients to restore and keep up skin’s protective barrier, like Ceramide and Cholesterol, as well as several ingredients that serve to attract and lock moisture in the skin such as Butylene Glycol and Glycerin - humectants (attract moisture to skin), Squalane - great emollient (softens, conditions the skin), Dimethicone- occlusive (creates an occlusive layer over the skin to keep the moisture in).


Texture: white, quite thick cream
Smell: no smell

In the description of the product Estee Lauder implies that Verite Moisture Relief Cream is mostly for the skin that tends to be dry. However, it can be used by all skin types. Usually I am very suspicious of “All Skin Types” products, and often rightly so as I get break outs. But Verite Moisture Relief Cream was great for my mixed skin. Texture seems at first quite thick. But when you apply the cream it kind of melts and very quickly gets absorbed. I also hate it when moisturizer is too occlusive and you can feel a film mask on your skin after application. It is not the case with Verite Moisture Relief Cream! It gives you thatnice velvety finish, skin immediately feels soft , moisturized and comfortable (I don’t want to sound like and ad but it’s true!). Redness also subsides with regular use.

The combination of Verite Calming Fluid and Verite Moisture Relief Cream is ideal for sensitive skin that needs that extra help to sooth persistent redness or to regenerate. If your skin is sensitive but you don’t have much redness/irritation, Verite Moisture Relief Cream alone should be enough. That’s how I am using it now and I like the results.
