Estee Lauder NEW Perfectionist Pro UV Fluid SPF45

I’m not sure what category you’d put this new Estee Lauder product into, but it is the last step in your skincare regime, so probably a primer – with SPF benefits.

The new Estée Lauder Perfectionist Pro UV Fluid SPF 45 is a hybrid to help protect your skin against those damaging UVA/UVB rays, and a whole lot more, including pollution.

So, how does it work? First of all it uses a patent-pending formula featuring Lauder’s Tiger Lily Extract which helps fight damage to elastic – elastin is a key component of your skin’s firm, flexible support network. This formula helps with signs of premature ageing – things like lines, wrinkles, age spots, and a loss of firmness. All of these can be accelerated by sun damage.

A precise combination of eight potent anti-oxidants including that Tiger Lily Extract, along with Vitamins C and E, Resveratol and Green Tea Extract help skin defend against those unavoidable aggressors – thinks like ozone, smoke, infrared and PM2.5 – that’s the tiny particulate matter in the air all around us.

Advanced fortifiers including Cactus Plant Extract help the skin seal in moisture, which helps prevent dehydration from eternal causes such as heating and air conditioning. Anti-irritants including Algae Extract and Caffeine help your skin feel calm, and soothed.

So, it’s WAY more than just a primer – it’s the perfect end product to your skincare regime, formulated with 100 per cent mineral based sunscreens. It creates a silky veil and is an ideal base for makeup.
