Estee Lauder Swiss Performing Extract

Estee Lauder has always been a company of innovations. Swiss Performing Extract was one of those innovations, and despite it having been around for decades, it still is in some ways. Although it doesn't contain some of the newest buzzword ingredients it contains other ingredients that are just recently becoming more mainstream.

Estee Lauder Swiss Performing Extract is a light, serum like, white liquid, lotion that has a slightly herbal scent. The texture of this lotions is extremely light and absorbs quickly. The scent is also light and not overly perfumed like so many other Lauder products. It contains Grape Seed Oil which has become a mainstream ingredient for products such as skin and hair care.

It absorbs quite quickly and leaves my face feeling moisturized but not greasy. The scent fades after application which is good for those averse to wearing perfume on their face. The scent is also gender friendly since it is not floral. It does not contain sunscreen so that makes it more of a night time use product.

The white milk glass bottle with gold screw on top contains 3.3 ounces of lotion and retails for $58.00 at Estee Lauder counters and the Estee Lauder website.
