The one I’m reviewing is the Cream for Dry Skin.
Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Extreme Ultra Firming Creme SPF15
Brings your skin a more lifted, firmer look and a fresh, rejuvenated glow—faster than ever.
This highly effective moisturizer starts working right away to deliver the multiple benefits mid-life skin needs:
- Speeds advanced lifting and firming benefits to your skin.
- Minimizes the look of lines and wrinkles.
- Exclusive ExtremeLift³ Complex helps amplify skin’s own natural collagen production.
- Helps firm up the appearance of sagging and emphasize tighter-looking contours.
- Instantly infuses skin with super-energized nutrients.
- Skin that was dull and lifeless immediately takes on a vivid radiance.
- Advanced hydrating blend of lipids, proteins and more delivers rich, lasting moisture.
- Instantly feel a welcome surge of relief from that uncomfortable tightness.
See more lift.
2 CREMES TO CHOOSE FROM
Choose the Resilience Lift Extreme creme right for your skintype:
- Dry Skin creme is richly nourishing.
- Very Dry Skin creme is even more emollient and intensively nourishing.
- Both include a gentle sunscreen to provide effective SPF 15 protection.
HOW TO USE
- Apply every AM after your Repair Serum.
- At night, we recommend Resilience Lift Extreme OverNight Ultra Firming Creme.
My Skin Type:
Actually very oily, but surpressed with BHA exfoliator. Results in generally ranging from very dry to normal/combo skin. Generally dehydrated, very sensitive, and acne prone.
Pretty jar packaging with gold colored cap. But jar will render the advanced ingredients inside useless
Light cream. It’s not thick, instead, for such a moisturizing cream, the consistency is quite thin.
My General Review:
After my tremendous success with the Resilience Lift eye cream, I had high expectations when I saw the face moisturizer in an Estee Lauder bazaar. 4 sample size for IDR60,000 only! What a bargain
And it doesn’t disappoint in the slightest bit. The texture is divine, it sinks in well without being greasy or oily. Yet it’s fairly moisturizing! It’s more hydrating compared to Clinique Superdefense for dry/combination skin. What’s more, it smooths out my skin really well. Really. Texture seems more refined, pores tightened. I don’t know why it’s able to do that, while Paula’s Choice or Clinique moisturizers can’t. Even though both PC and Clinique are well formulated! Is it because EL contain more oil or water binding ingredients? Aside from containing other beneficial ingredients like antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients, of course. I’m not quite sure. What I know is this EL moisturizer for me is really a step above both PC or Clinique.
Plus, it has SPF15. It’s not major or anything, and I won’t use 1/3 teaspoon of this moisturizer on my face, so I’ll still depend on my sunscreen to protect me. But it’s nice to know the SPF is there. It helps to ensure the protection from my sunscreen to be intact (and not diluted) when moisturizer is applied.
Unfortunately, like most EL products, this is highly fragranced. It’s not troublesome for my nose, but I’m afraid it’ll knock my skin out of its balance (since my skin is very sensitive). But so far, it’s been so good. Skin still looks calm and happy.
I usually wear this as my day cream, on top of my antioxidant serum. Since if I’m using this cream means I’m dry at the moment, I usually pair it with Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate (which is pretty moisturizing).
This product contains SPF, so it’s not recommended to use at night.
You can grab this at any Estee Lauder counters across the nation. It means at major department stores, of course.
I can’t remember the IDR price for the full size jar, but it’s pretty expensive. In US, it retails for US$49.50 for 30ml, US$70 for 50ml, and US$85 for 75ml.
I suggest you get the smallest jar. It may not be cost effective, but I prefer to finish up the jar quickly and buy a new one, so at least it contains fresher goodness for my skin.

4 out of 5. It’s near perfect day cream for dry skin, but please EL, make this in a tube at least. An airtight pump would be generous of you. Pretty please?
