Product Review: Estee Lauder – Advanced Time Zone – Age Reversing Line/Wrinkle Creme


I have been looking forward to writing my review on this product from the first day I used it. Estee Lauder never fail me when it comes to their skin care.

I really love this product. I was testing the Normal/Combination Creme. It has a lightweight yet very moisturising texture. It absorbs into the skin quickly which makes it perfect for applying before your makeup. It leaves just the right about of moisture on your skin for it to feel smooth and revitalised, without it feeling oily or greasy.

Estee Lauder claim “This advanced creme helps rewind the appearance of ageing” and I absolutely agree.  I noticed the difference in my skin within 1 day of using this product. I have now been using it for around 20 days and I am hooked! My skin looks bright, moisturised, fresh and significantly healthier. Fine lines and dark under-eye circles are dramatically reduced.

This creme has SPF 15 which means it is great to help reduce the effects of UV damage, so it not only reduces the fine lines you already have it will also help prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles in the future.

There are two options of creme to choose from; Normal/Combination Skin Creme is lightweight, silky and refreshing. The Dry Skin Creme is luxuriously emollient and velvety smooth.

The Advanced Time Zone is also available in a delicate Eye Cream or Night Cream. 


This product is available at or at most Boots Stores and is priced at £53.00 for a 50ml tub. One point I would like to add about this creme is,  a little goes a long way. The 50ml tub will last you a long time, so in my opinion is well worth the price tag.

An eyeliner worth talking about…

Is it just me or is it really difficult to find a half decent eye pencil these days?

All I want in an eyeliner, is for it to be easy to apply, soft to smudge and it will stay in place…. is that really too much to ask? Every time I seem to find a good eyeliner, I get to the end of it and then find that in the mean time the cosmetics brand have changed the formula and then it isn’t worth even looking at again.

One eyeliner I have come across a number of months ago which came to my rescue was the Estee Lauder Double Wear – Stay in Place Eye Pencil. It does offer everything I want in an eye liner. It is the most used item in my kit, so I do go through it really quickly therefore the price does break my heart just a little….. but it is still worth it.

This pencil has great staying power, wearing for 12 hours, the creamy formula glides on and sets in seconds. Its rich, stay-true colour wont feather or bleed. This pencil comes with a smudger on the end for easy blending.

If you are looking for a reliable eyeliner, this is it. These pencils come in a range of different colours including Coffee, Forest, Onyx, Graphite, Bronze, Black Plum and Midnight Blue.

The only problem I have had with this pencil is its popularity. So many times I try to buy this pencil it is sold out. Even the Estee Lauder website is regularly sold out of the black colour.

These pencils retail for £16 and are available at Boots, Debenhams and online at

For a healthy glow and even skin-tone in seconds….

I have been using this product for years now. It was previously known as Estee Lauder Daywear Plus, but in the last year they have reviewed the name and packaging of this product to a much more beneficial squeezable tube rather than the hard oval shaped bottle before, however I think the product has remained much the same. Estee Lauder have simply changed the name to ‘Daywear – Sheer Tint Release’.

If like me you have days where you don’t really feel like putting on a full face of foundation, but aren’t really ready to share the banshee-like complexion with the world quite yet, you will LOVE this product.

There is no need for brushes or sponges, this is I think the only product which I will recommend you put it on with your fingers. It is so quick and easy to use. I apply this with a touch of mascara and I’m off!

DAYWEAR SHEER TINT is a fabulous tinted moisturiser which will work well with most complexions, giving you that much sought-after healthy but natural looking glow with a perfectly even skin-tone.

Without getting all scientific…. this product adapts to your own skin tone. It comes out of the tube a grey-ish colour and oxidises to suit your skin. I have tested this out with friends to see how adaptable this product is. So myself, having quite a pale complexion and a friend with more swarthy skin both put on the same product out of the same tube. After a minute we took a clean white tissue each and found that the colour which we wiped off our faces we different. Showing that this product will intelligently adapt to the skin tone it is applied too. Not very often do I find a product that will suit a full range of skin tones and be so easy to apply.

Estee Lauder promise this product will help safeguard your skin with advanced broad-spectrum sunscreen and their best ever UVA defence. This product promises to reduce the appearance of first signs of ageing, like dullness and fine, dry lines.

This product is great for dry or combination skin. I haven’t had the chance to try it out on oily skin as yet, however, the ladies who work on the Estee Lauder counters are really helpful. Pop into any store stocking Estee Lauder and they will happily let you try this product out for yourself and if you even ask nicely they will give you a sample to take home.

I wouldn’t say this product gives great coverage for blemishes or spots, it is more for simply giving yourself that healthy glow when you don’t need full coverage. I love it and highly recommend it.

This product is priced at £34 online for a 50ml tube and is available at most Estee Lauder counters in Boots, House of Fraser and Debenhams. It is also available online at
