esteelauder cyberwhite hd NEW! Estee Lauder Cyberwhite HD goes High Definition and introduces a BB Balm

When March 2013 rolls around, here’s something new that Estee Lauder will have on counters – the HD version of their Cyberwhite range. This is essentially the upgrading of their existing Cyberwhite Brilliant Cells product range, and is their whitening, brightening skincare line.

For now, 3 new items will be introduced into the range – the Advanced Spot Correcting Moisture Lotion in Fresh Moist and Intense Moist, Advanced Spot Correcting Essence and the rather more interesting to some of us, Advanced brightening BB Balm SPF30/PA++

One of the first whitening skincare I used back in the day was actually by Estee Lauder and it was because I was using everything from the brand at the time. Let me show you which and you can tell me if you’ve ever used anything from them icon smile NEW! Estee Lauder Cyberwhite HD goes High Definition and introduces a BB Balm

esteelauder cyberwhite history NEW! Estee Lauder Cyberwhite HD goes High Definition and introduces a BB Balm

Ah here you have it! The evolution of the whitening skincare from Estee Lauder. I started some time in 2002 with the Whitelight series. I went through about 2 or 3 tubes of serum and then moved on to Whitelight EX but I soon fell off that bandwagon (disliked the cleanser immensely and thought the serum was just ok but a bit drying). I guess I wasn’t as loyal as I thought I could be icon biggrin NEW! Estee Lauder Cyberwhite HD goes High Definition and introduces a BB Balm Gosh, that certainly brings back memories!

I tested some things from Cyberwhite Brilliant Cells a while back but didn’t leave too lasting an impression except for the Cyberwhite Brilliant Cells night cream. Now that one, I really like! And this is why I get a little nervous when I hear of yet another reformulation. Sometimes, a reformulation makes the product better, and sometimes, it gives my skin problems.

I’m assured that the new Cyberwhite HD products have better technology to reduce and prevent dark spots which then gives you a clearer skintone, but isn’t drying on skin, while also helping neutralize irritation from pollution and UV through a botanical ingredient, Scutellaria Baicalensis.

I haven’t tried these yet so this serves as a preview to the upcoming range. I can tell you that tested on the back of my hand, they feel nice (don’t they all?) so once I do try them, I’ll get a review up. But just for starters, here’s a quick run down on the new additions and what they do and how much they cost.

  1. Cyberwhite HD Advanced Spot Correction Moisture Lotion (Fresh Moist and Intense Moist) RM180 – This is the toner which you wipe on skin after cleansing, to prep skin to receive the essence and moisturiser that comes after. There are 2 formulations, Fresh Moist is lighter than Intense Moist and helps hydrate skin at the same time. This is quite reminiscent of the Japanese style of toners but I’m not sure if they hydrate as well. The floral scent didn’t appeal to me very much.
  2. Cyberwhite HD Advanced Spot Correction Essence RM350 – This is the serum essence which has more concentrated ingredients to reduce and prevent dark spots on skin and give a clearer skintone. I’ve had only marginal success with previous versions of this essence so I’m not sure how much more dramatic an outcome I could or should expect with this one, lovely as it sounds. I am assured it isn’t as drying so that’s a bonus
  3. Cyberwhite HD Advanced Brightening BB Balm SPF30/PA++ RM175 – This one might catch the eye of many. It is a light tinted balm in a compact form that serves as light makeup or as a makeup base. The texture is light and you are advised to use just a thin layer on skin which you apply using the sponge provided. This is your BB Cream in a balmy compact form! Now did that catch your eye? icon wink NEW! Estee Lauder Cyberwhite HD goes High Definition and introduces a BB Balm

The Cyberwhite HD range will be available at Estee Lauder counters from March 2013 which isn’t long now. I’ll take the BB Balm for a spin and let you know what I think about it. Based on a quick demonstration, it does make skin look even toned and smooth, but then, the lady had good skin already! Crazy skin like mine would be better testing ground to see just whether it looks good icon biggrin NEW! Estee Lauder Cyberwhite HD goes High Definition and introduces a BB Balm The team at Estee Lauder were very excited about that one so you know how its like – I just have to know if that really lives up to its hype or if I can bust some bubbles! icon wink NEW!

Have you used any Estee Lauder whitening products before this? Does any new items catch your eye?

As I said, I was using Whitelight before it became Whitelight EX and even until it became Cyberwhite before I left the Estee Lauder product train for greener pastures. Some of the stuff work, some don’t but I guess that’s how it is. Can’t expect it to work for everyone icon smile NEW! Estee Lauder Cyberwhite HD goes High Definition and introduces a BB Balm

I’ve only tried the serum when it was named “Cyberwhite” and so far, I am very happy with it and I finished the whole tube already! I like how lightweight it feels and it gives me a good kind of brightening effect. You’re right, skincare? It doesn’t work for everyone so you really have to try it!

Actually I stopped using the serum when it became Cyberwhite LOL! I hated the name :P I’m still not sure about the HD tag but we’ll see how it goes ;)

Ooh I love the Advanced Night Repair serum – its the best ever, I swear! I may not use it as often as I should, but I always have a bottle on stand by for when my skin needs the extra oomph! :D

I’ve never used Estee Lauder skincare before save for the Idealist serum which broke me out.

You’re right about reformulations, sometimes its better but its so sad when your skin responds better to the old formula. Even worse if it’s a staple in your routine! haha

Looking forward to find out how the BB balm performs. Keep us posted!

Ah Idealist. I loved it when it was first launched. Then they reformulated it and I didn’t like it anymore. I haven’t used it since LOL! I sometimes get really scared when brands talk about reformulating products especially as you said, when its a staple in my skincare routine. What if my skin hates it? argh! I’ll definitely share my experience with the BB Balm :D

Ooooh I am very curious indeed about that BB cream compact! It reminds me of the new(ish) Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in the compact. It looks great but I didn’t try it because they only released it in the original formula and not oil-free. I wonder if this one is oil-free….

Reply

Paris B February 23, 2013 at 12:15 pm

Ohh yes Laura Mercier did do that tinted moisturiser compact didn’t they? I found it a bit oily for my skin which is weird because I don’t usually have oily skin and I usually wear the normal tinted moisturiser. I don’t think this is oil free per se, but its quite light. I’ll report back after use :)

Cyberwhite always breaks me out. I’m gonna skip it.. i wonder what ingredients are in there that breaks me out…

Paris B February 23, 2013 at 12:16 pm

It could be anything Shieja – but if you do know it breaks you out, its better to just stay away. There are other options after all ;)

Not sure about the compact form for the BB, I think I’d prefer a liquid!

Reply

Paris B February 27, 2013 at 11:08 pm

Am quite curious about it though I too prefer liquid. It’s faster! ;)
