Some of you may have already heard the buzz from Estee Lauder about a new lotion in the market. I snuck you a peek at the Micro Essence lotion about a month back and I promised I’d tell you how or if I like it. Well, now is the time 🙂 The Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion is now on shelves and you can have a go at it to see what the fuss is about. I received an sms from the Estee Lauder counter that you can get some free samples so go! Sample! 🙂
But before you run out the door here’s what I think about this new, and apparently, revolutionary product.
The Micro Essence is only available in Asia for now so friends in the Western world will have to wait to see if you get it or if it never arrives. The reason I think it’s made for the Asian market is because of what it is – a treatment lotion that is something many of us who are familiar with Asian type skincare are familiar with.
This isn’t a toner in the traditional sense. What this is is an essence in lotion that hydrates, calms and repairs the skin barrier amongst others. Those of us who are already familiar with Asian skincare will be familiar with how this works and I think the nod given by Estee Lauder, a quintessentially American brand, to the growing Asian skincare market is to be applauded.
And yet, where have we seen this before right here on this blog? 😉
