Eslor Rejuvenating Day Cream ($78 in the shop) is thick, smooth and pale pink, very much resembling old Olay products. It has an unusual scent which I cannot pretend to like, but it’s tolerable. Generally I am not too concerned about the superficialities of how a product looks or smells, as long as it does its job. However, I know these things are important to many people and if you are at all fragrance sensitive you may find the odd scent of Eslor a little disconcerting.
Eslor Rejuvenating Day Cream is comfortable to wear and does its main job very well – it moisturizes and soothes. It provides a bit of plumped up glow, thankfully without the dreaded oil slick look, so it can safely be worn under makeup for the whole day.
I’d suggest that it’s especially suitable for women over 35. I’m not sure how it would go on 20-somethings - it might be just a little heavy, but is certainly worth a try.
It does, however, need to be kept clear of the eye area if you are prone to puffiness under there, which I am. My first trial, where I used it all over my face, resulted in quite obvious under-eye puffing. I very much prefer moisturisers which can be used all over the face, but this is not one of those. So it’s best to use the Eslor Eye Cream ($75 in the shop) there instead, which does not cause puffing at all.
Ingredients and performance
The base of the cream is aloe vera plus silicones and oils. There are quite a few clever additional bits and pieces, without getting overly complicated or resorting to questionable chemicals. I like that the ingredients list implies awareness of modern base cream formulation while keeping things relatively natural.
The main rejuvenating ingredients are Matrixyl 3000, plus amino acids and other proteins. Those should make a worthwhile contribution to skin rejuvenation, especially if used in partnership with products containing skin-building essentials such as vitamins C and A, which are not included in this particular formulation.
