Estrea European Skin Care Review & Product Giveaway (Valued at $140)

In all honesty, I think the European culture truly embraces beauty and really knows how to do skin care right and American’s still have a lot to learn from these beauty pioneers. In my opinion, European skin and body care products tend to feel more luxurious and pampering and are often made with beautiful ingredients that seem more skin loving in comparison to US made products.

For these reasons, I was delighted to be approached by Estrea Skin Care, an esteemed European beauty brand that has been the number one choice of skin care for women in Europe since the mid-90’s. And recently, Estrea’s product line became available in the U.S. so that now American women can experience the benefits of Estrea’s unique European Skin Care System.

This beautiful line is manufactured in Budapest, Hungary and has twelve products for your face, hands, body and feet which bring together the best of science and the restorative properties of nature. The ingredients frequently used in Estrea’s products include aloe vera, collagen, coffee, olive oil, citrus extracts, chestnut and Vitamins A, C, E and F. And since it’s launch, the most coveted products in the line are the fast-absorbing hand & nail care creams because they have been proven to promote fingernail growth. I’d love to tell you more about the products that I tried and share my opinions with you.

Since many of you know that my eyes are most problematic area, it will come as no surprise that I tried out the eye cream first. Estrea’s Eye Cream contains collagen and vitamin-E botanicals that work synergistically to revive tired-looking eyes and reduce puffiness and dark circles as well as working to improve overall elasticity by strengthening the eye’s delicate skin and softening the appearance of fine lines. I really like how lightweight the cream is, how it instantly absorbs into my delicate eye area and how it perks up my eyes and hydrates my skin. Very nice!

This is a wonderful collection of four skin loving products for the face and body that moisturize, help stimulate circulation and promote your skin’s elasticity. Here’s what the set contains:

  • Hydrating Body Lotion with Olive Oil, Ceramide & Coffee This active body lotion moisturizes and replenishes your skin with olive oil and vitamin E, it increases microcirculation with caffeine, and it helps renew your skin’s natural moisture and elasticity with Ceramide. I love that it smells like a European spa, it subtly perks up my skin and it hydrates all day.
  • Tightening & Replenishing Face & Neck Cream with Olive Oil, Coffee & Hyaluron This is my favorite product in the Estrea line because it beautifully nourishes my face and neck and it also makes it feel tighter and it gives my face a noticeable lift. It contains Mediterranean olive oil, rich in Vitamin-E, which rejuvenates and protects as well as caffeine which immediately wakes up your skin.  LOVE it!
  • Hydrating Hand Cream with Olive Oil & Citrus Extract This is a light yet wonderfully hydrating hand cream with a refreshing citrus scent. It also contains the revitalizing Mediterranean olive oil as well as a bright lime extract. It leaves my hands soft and hydrated for hours and I like the fresh clean citrus scent.
  • Refreshing Foot Balm with Chestnut and Mint I have been using this balm every night after wearing high heels to help rejuvenate my tired, swollen feet. It contains chestnut extracts to help tone, refresh and reduce swelling as well as mint for instant cooling. Can you say Happy Feet?!!

Overall, I really enjoyed trying Estrea’s products and I think the line is beautifully made, skin loving and results driven in a gentle way. And here’s the best part, I am giving away One Estrea Body Care Set (which contains the 4 products discussed above) and One Estrea Face Care Set (Valued at $140) to ONE lucky winner.

Face Care Set ($74-$76)

The Face Care sets are targeted for either Oily or Dry/Combination Skin Type and contain 4 of the following products: a Creamy Facial Cleansing Milk for Eyes & Face, an Exfoliating Scrub, an Intensive Care Eye Cream with Collagen & Vitamin-E (the one I reviewed above) and either a Tightening Face Cream with Olive Oil for Dry skin types OR a Moisturizing Face Gel Vitamin Complex with D-Panthenol for Oily skin types. If you win, you will be able to choose the system that is best for your skin type.

  79. This skin care line looks great! If I win, I would love to try the set for Oily Skin. I agree that European skin care often seems to be a bit more luxurious & focused on good for you ingredients. I have a hodge podge of skin care products right now that I am using. I’m in the process of streamlining & finding products that really work for me.
