Beauty Review | Estée Lauder New Dimension Shape + Fill Expert Serum

Mummy Blog new Zealand Beauty Blogger Estee Lauder

Let’s get the price out of the way quickly and move on to the science as this new (miracle, hero, MY FAVOURITE serum of all time) product firmly sits in the splurge category for me; 30mls – RRP $174, 50mls – RRP $252.  However, my 4ml sample size lasted the month easily, using it both morning and night.  Considering I’m a bit heavy handed when it comes to application, the 30ml size would easily see you through 7.5 months!  I call that a wise investment in your skin.

Ok, now the good stuff.

Last month Estée Lauder launched the New Dimension Collection.  Dubbed ‘transformative’, a multi-faceted approach shows both immediate effect as well as cumulative over time. This is a beauty range devoid of bloat.  Four products, four seriously good products;

  • New Dimension Shape + Fill Expert Serum
  • New Dimension Expert Liquid Tape – helps to tighten and tone
  • New Dimension Shape + Sculpt Face Kit – Instantly sculpt the face
  • New Dimension Shape + Sculpt Eye Kit  – Instantly transform eyes

The New Dimension Shape + Sculpt Face Kit is being used to give me angles, cheekbones and contour! It’s also relatively easy to use, the palette contains only two tones so even I may be able to replicate this myself.  Resting-bitch-face attributed to me thinking “WTF was I thinking by wearing a plaid flannel shirt to a gorgeous beauty launch?!”

Using Neuroscience Testing on their consumer panel for the first time, Estée Lauder discovered that after using the New Dimension Shape + Fill Expert Serum for 10 weeks the transformative nature of the product had yielded tangible visible results but had also resulted in a positive change in attitude regarding their appearance in 91% of respondents.  After using the serum for 4 weeks I can totally agree.

My skin has been going through some sort of mid-life crisis this year.  I had an inflammatory reaction to a face mask which resulted in peeling redness and hideous acne-like flare ups.   The New Dimension serum has started to undo the damage caused.  The surface scarring has begun to turn around, my skin is way more refined, less saggy and doughy and my confidence is back for the first time in months.  This product’s focus on the ‘inner architecture’ of the skin sounds gimmicky but that’s where I feel the improvement in my skin has stemmed from.  The texture of my skin has never been so smooth, plump and refreshed.  

I (almost) love my skin again lol.

Beauty Review | Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

OK ladies, here’s another stellar product from my bag of tricks.  The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II is definitely an investment, but a wise one.  

I’ve written about serums before and tried quite a few.  In my opinion, this little brown bottle is the queen of them all.  I’ve touched a few times on a terrible reaction I had recently from a skincare product and this serum combined with Plantae’s Lavender Cream Cleanser, Trilogy’s Rosehip Oil and Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ now comprises the sum total of my daily skincare routine.  

I love natural, simple products but I also love science and visible results.  It seems strange to think that B.E. {Before Estée!} I would go to bed worrying about in what state I would find my skin in the morning.  Finally, it’s getting better and better everyday.

This is an oil free serum which goes on beautifully and is absorbed rapidly delivering an instant hydration boost that lasts through the night.  My skin was actually breaking down and thinning down the sides of my nose and on my chin.  Advanced Night Repair bolstered my skin’s natural repair process and has strengthened these damaged and delicate areas, which are now almost fully healed!  I mentioned over on Instagram that this is First Aid for skin, and in my case it truly is.

Nightime is the BEST time to take care of your skin and Estée Lauder has totally capitalized on this by targeting skin’s natural nighttime catabolysis (cellular repair process) and bolstering it with Advanced Night Repair, their #1 selling repair serum.  10/10
