Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum cover has been the only foundation is able to cover my melasma. The foundation is thick. You only need a small amount to apply. Foundation can dry your skin.
I have been using Estée Lauder double wear for about 2 years now and the last bottle I bought has caused a severe reaction. My skin is extremely itchy and looks burned. I applied neosporin and then it became dry and flaky. I have major burn spots around my chin and nostrils. Even my lips and eyelids burn. I do not know what ingredient they changed but I have to find something else.

I got the eye cream at Christmas. Not long after, I woke up with swollen, red, itchy eyelids and could not figure out what in the world could have caused it. I have used Estee Lauder products for a long time, but not this eye cream. The redness turned to scaly, dry, peeling skin. It persisted until I finally went back to my It Confidence In An Eye Cream the other night - my eyes are fine now. It is horrible that something meant for the eye area would cause what appeared to be chemical burns. I have used eye serums/creams for about 20 years and this has never happened with ANY product before.
Purchased a gift with purchase around Christmas time that included a full size jar. I was excited to try it. I’d been using it for a few days (day & night as per sales person) and then started noticing red patches under my eyes. I basically has burn marks and swelling under my eyes. It’s been a couple of days since I stopped using it and it’s still dry, burnt and painful. All I can apply at this point is Aquaphor. This is a terrible product.
I thought I had found the most beautiful eyeshadow ever, but I was terribly wrong! I had received the “Lily Pulitzer For Estée Lauder Pure Eyeshadow Compact” as a part of a special combo pack when you spend so much money on another of Estée Lauder’s products. It contains 4 shades of eyeshadow, of which I only used one. I must admit, I hung on to this product for a few years before deciding to try it, but there was no expiration date on it, so I figured it was good to try. It went on beautifully—like velvet! I had been applying it for about 2 weeks off & on, meaning: some days I wore eye makeup & other days I wore none. I was so impressed until I had a severe allergic reaction to it!!!
My eyelids & above lids where I place my eyeshadow started turning a rash red, became extremely dry, itchy, burning & peeling! This has been going on 2 weeks now!!! I cannot wear any makeup on my eyes!!! It looks hideous!!! I am so upset!!! I’ve started doctoring it with Vaseline & then tried Neosporin Cream which helped to soften up skin a bit, however all other symptoms are still present & my skin is burning as if I put acid on my eyes!!! I’ve red other Reviews here about Estée Lauder Customers who have experienced the same thing!!!
I noticed when I had received the Estée Lauder Value Pack of goodies, that all of her creams had a very strong chemical odor, so I threw them away! And yes, these were suppose to be fresh products that came with another purchase! I guess I will try Burt Bees Moisturizer or an Oatmeal product as other customer/victims suggested & see if that helps, but honestly—my eyes look so burnt/swollen/red/peeling/ugly & (now creepy—caused by product), that I don’t know if they will ever clear up or if I will ever be able to wear any eye make ever again!!! What has happened to Estée Lauder’s products? Even her Estée Lauder Perfumed Bath Oil is not the same!!! Is there a “group lawsuit” that I can add my name to, because I fear this is going to cost a lot of money to clear up this rash!!! Please advise!!! Thank You!
I had an issue since I purchased an order of moisturizer from Estée Lauder back on Nov 2019. I have used Estee Lauder products for many years and never had an issue until my purchased last November 2019. I got a very bad allergic reaction. Vey dry skin, itchy, red puffy eyes got very swollen the skin around my eyes. Lids were breaking from been so dry. It felt like they had put acid around my eyes. I spend hundreds of dollars going to different doctors not knowing what it was.
My dermatologist told me to stop using the moisturizer I was using from estee lauder (not knowing this was the cause). My problem went away after almost 9 months of treatment and going to doctors, so, I thought I could back to my old moisturizer(not knowing it was the cause). I placed an order a few weeks ago. The dryness came back and the itching and redness around my eyes too. I immediately knew it was the moisturizer I had order from Estee lauder. This product is not good at all anymore. What a shame.
I've been using Estee Lauder's products for a least 14 years so when I had an allergic reaction I though was due to some new make up remover I used. I stopped using it and didn't use anything on my face for few days. Now I started using my usual eye creams and serum and the redness around my eyes is coming back. After reading some of the reviews I guess they changed something and it's their products giving me the reaction.
I have used Estée Lauder skincare for years. The products are good but customer service is not that great. They expire your rewards annually and will not roll them over regardless of when you made the purchase. My anniversary date is 7/6 and I made a large purchase on 6/29 that qualified me for the 20% off coupon. They credited my rewards on 7/1 for the purchase and emailed me the code for my 20% off my next purchase coupon on 7/2. On 7/6 they deactivated my coupon and said it was only good for till 7/6. When I called customer service, the rep. said “how unfortunate for you”. I was only given 72 hours to use it.
I was surprised at the condescending tone of the rep. and lack of respect. I then did a survey about the phone call that was sent to me via email and voiced my disappointment with customer service. I then received a very condescending email from a rep at EL, the email directly implies that I must be illiterate and unable to read the fine print. All I wanted was a reasonable amount of time to use my 20% off coupon. I had just spent over $250 to get the coupon and it expired before I even received the products from the first order. I understand that points expire but the coupon should be valid for at least 30 days before expiring. That’s all I wanted and instead I was treated in a very condescending way.
I have 4 orders from family members that are unable to go out due to pandemic; Estee Lauder assistant was explained several times that I need it to do separate orders so each person could get GWP and Upgrade; order were 1 Resilience Lift Day, 1 Resilience Lift Night, 3.4oz ANR and Resilience Lift Eye; she refused to do it stating that couldn't issue more than 3 GWP per person and only 3 upgrades! Again explained that were for 4 people, offered to do separated transactions, again she refused! I paid almost $500.00. I was not lower myself to keep arguing w her! I paid and left very angry! Now I am looking at the bag and I am returning everything and go to Dillard's to get Items!
I ordered a product during a promotional offer but when I received my order the free bag and items were missing. I have called repeatedly, been on hold for almost 2 hours with no answer. I tried chat multiple times over multiple days, waiting for extended periods of time. No one ever came on the chat. I understand we’re in a pandemic but why don’t they quit emailing offers every day and acting like they’re open when for all intents & purposes they’re closed?
I have used many products as a licensed esthetician, but I have never had a reaction like I did to Estée Lauder’s holiday gift set. Rosacea like breakouts on cheeks, pimples on lips like cold sores and red splotches. I tried taking out the oil then the moisturizer, which helped, but then I went back to using the cleanser which was used for travel only as well as the eye cream- which to the point I thought I needed lower lid surgery. I won’t even pass these on to someone else to see how their skin reacts, because that would be a straight out mean.
