Top Reviews



i absolutely love how silky hydrationist is

- EstéE Lauder User

"hydrationist" is absolutely the best moisture creme

- EstéE Lauder User


redness relief

the rash went away and almost for so many years my mom and i used it until it became hydrationist together with perfectionist, advance night repair , day wear (my youngest sister uses it and diminished her rosacea)

- Nordstrom User

i have found that it has helped my skin with hydration and has helped to reduce the appearance of wrinkles

- EstéE Lauder User



i wear this under my foundation and it's not too heavy and keeps my skin looking great all day

- Macy's User

estee lauder has always been a great brand of lightweight lotion that smells greats and keeps me moisturized

- Nordstrom User


good for acne

i have very sensitive skin and this moisturizer keeps my face smooth and fully moisturized without clogging pores or any breakouts

- Nordstrom User

no breakouts either

- Nordstrom User



the creme leaves your face with a wonderfully soft feeling, and you can see your face brighten up after using it

- Nordstrom User

i could not do without this hydrating day cream - it makes my face feel soft, radiant and ready for the day

- Debenhams User



my wrinkles are noticeably smaller

- EstéE Lauder User

it absorbs quickly, is non greasy, make up goes over it easily, but most importantly my skin is instantly rehydrated and it prevents sagging and wrinkles

- EstéE Lauder User



i have moderate rosecea all over my face & hydrationist does not irritate my skin or make it more red

- EstéE Lauder User

as i am in my 70's i find this crème gentle and refreshing, especially around the eyes

- Davidjones User

Hydrationist is awesome!

I love Hydrationist maximum moisture creme because it is not a heavy thick creme. It is lighter & absorbs into the skin readily. The fragrance is light but very nice, almost wish I could smell it longer! I have moderate rosecea all over my face & Hydrationist does not irritate my skin or make it more red. It's the perfect moisturizer for my oily/combination skin for the warmer months of the year as it soaks into my face/neck easily & is light. I use Revitalizing Supreme Global anti-aging creme during the colder months as I need a thicker/heavier moisturizer for my skin which is more dry during fall/winter. I highly recommend Hydrationist for all skin types as there is a dry formula as well as an normal/combination formula. It makes my skin feel very soft. LOVE IT!! Thanks EL :)

Super smoothing, not greasy, soft focus effect

I have used Hydrationist for Dry skin for a month as part of a kit, and it is impressive. It is not greasy, gives you the smoothest skin, and a soft focus effect that is great. I have combination to oily skin prone to acne, and this did not break me out but, in combination with the ANR at night and Idealist daytime, cleared up my skin and made it look so much better. I had been using an inexpensive product for a month, and I thought it was doing a great job, but then I used this, and saw how much better this makes my skin look. One of the main ingredients is a polymer that provides this "soft focus" and it's awesome! The fact that a person with oily skin not particularly in need of hydration can use this and get good results is amazing. As to the scent, it's hardly noticeable.

amazing moisturiser

I can't express how great this cream was for me. My skin was very dry and looked tiered and no other creams were improving it. . I treated myself to this cream after reading lots of reviews on it and purchased the combination one as my Tzone gets very oily with creams for dry skin. Within a few days my skin was like new, hydrated, fine lines massively reduced and had a nice glow to my skin. It also is a nice base before putting make up. Would highly recommend this cream for people with dry and dull skin.

Hydrationist is Fabulous!

I am so pleased with this moisturizer. It glides on smoothly without any greasiness. It feels like a clean, very hydrated moisturizer without being heavy. It absorbs into the skin very well without just sitting on top of the skin.I have found that it has helped my skin with hydration and has helped to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. My skin feels smooth and supple. I use the Advanced Night Repair first, then I apply the Hydrationist. This makes for a great combination at night. During the day, I use any one of Estee Lauder's SPF day creams. Love EL products!!!

Run-of-the-mill product, doesn't brighten skin

I received a .5 oz sample jar of this product during an Estee Lauder bonus offer. I'm a big fan of several of their skincare products, like Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser, Idealist, Advanced Night Repair Serum, and Daywear Plus, so I was disappointed with the mediocre performance of Hydra Bright.It is a definitely a cream, and a heavy one at that. It's intended for dry skin, but it's still remarkably heavy feeling, almost waxy, and I'm surprised that it's recommended for AM use. I didn't like the way my makeup applied over it. It almost felt like I was wearing cold cream.Also, regardless of skin type or age, EVERY woman needs sun protection in her moisturizer. This (unlike Daywear Plus) doesn't contain any sunscreen, which means one would have to apply a sunscreen over it. This stuff hardly needs anything else layered on top of it -- I would imagine even the driest skin would be greasy after all that.It hydrates pretty well, and has a light, pleasant scent, but I can't get past that 'cold cream' feel. I did use it for about a month, because I'm one of those people who can't throw out a free sample without feeling like I'm throwing away money. In that time, I saw no improvement in my skintone or 'brightness'. Needless to say, for what they charge, it should be a great product, but it's not. « less
