Being someone who is always on the search for a good retinol serum, once I saw Estee Lauder released their new Perfectioist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment I knew I had to give it a try. I love how hydrating this feels, yet it doesn’t feel the slightest bit greasy. I suspect if you have oily skin this might be all you need. Since I have very dry skin I apply another moisturizer over this before going to bed at night. This has several beneficial ingredients- shea butter, jojoba seed oil, algae, borage seed oil, retinol, vitamin e, and many more beneficial ingredients. My only real disappointments with the Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment is that Estee Lauder doesn’t disclose the percentage of Retinol this treatment contains. It would be nice to know the percentage since before using this the retinol I used was at 1%. Given the slowness of the effects of this Treatment I suspect this is around 0.2. My other disappointment is the fragrance that Estee Lauder included. It is a heavy floral scent. Thankfully this does dissipate, but those with sensitive skin will probably want to pass on this Retinol and go with a fragrance free version. I really like the combination of beneficial ingredients they chose for this, and the sleek squeeze tube packaging is convenient for storage or travelling.
