Review: Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Creme

(Purchased product)

This is a review of the Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Creme.  This is another of the sample sized products that I bought in Hong Kong.  This product comes in 2 different formulas for Dry and Normal/Combination skin.

What it does: (from the Estee Lauder website)
You want it all-the lifted look, the firmer feeling and the radiance that reflects how beautiful you are. Now look as young as you feel with a multi-faceted, 24-hour lift system. Powered by our exclusive Photo-Activated Lift Complex, Resilience Lift day formulas harness the beneficial power of visible light. Featuring a light-responsive enzyme (Plankton Extract), mineral (Malachite) and plant extract (Mimosa) to help skin amplify its natural collagen and elastin production. Over time, skin’s strength, resiliency and volume are renewed and you’ll see a remarkably younger, revitalized look. 
Price: $94 for 2.5oz (74ml). The sample that I bought was 0.5oz (15ml) and probably cost around $10-15.


  • Very moisturizing
  • The scent is very faint. I can smell it in the pot, but cannot smell it on my skin.


  • It is a little too moisturizing for the warm weather in Jakarta, but it works for me when I’m in Japan
  • I’m not sure it gives me a lifted, firmer face
Would I repurchase? No. While this was a good moisturizer, I was not wowed by it.
While this wasn’t a bad purchase, I definitely did not feel that it was worth the hefty price tag. I’m glad I got a smaller size to try it out first.
Hope you enjoyed this review!
