Review of Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Milky Emulsion

Introducing Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Milky Emulsion

Who wants to have healthy, glowing skin?
I bet all of us want it.
Some might want it badly, like me!

I have been an avid lover of skin care products, particularly those which are safe, skin-friendly and show effective results. After series of treatment that I have to go through for my breast cancer, particularly  the chemotherapy, I have been suffering from super dry skin and hyperpigmentation, which resulted in dark spots on my face. As my oncologist informed me previously, this is part of the side effects of chemo as well as the medicine I took in order to make sure that cancer does not return to my system. It doesn't look that bad bad but it's still sad to see them spreading over my cheeks and forehead.

Aku memang pecinta skin care, apalagi semenjak menjalani kemoterapi di tahnu 2014 dan 2015. Meskipun aku tidak pernah memiliki kulit mulus sejak muda #emangudahtuamba tapi aku perhatikan kulitku benar-benar menderita sejak kemo. Kulit wajah terutama, yang bukan hanya kering dan terkelupas namun juga penuh dengan bintik hitam. Dokter oncologist aku memang sudah mengingatkan bahwa dampak dan efek samping dari kemoterapi memang banyak, termasuk hiperpegmentasi di kulit wajah. Ini yang sering membuatku sedih kalau melihat kulit wajah dari dekat. But, hey.. we can always find something to work on it.

So, with that in mind, I have tried to look for products that can help me address this issues.

It is not always that easy to find one though.
Some are too strong for me as it has alcohol in it or the active ingredients are simple unsuitable for my type of skin. Some are good but extremely expensive. Some are just simply a big No-No.

But then, of all the products I have tried, I fall in love with this one from Estee Lauder!
Introducing Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Milky Emulsion.
Estee Lauder has long been known as one of the leading companies with visionary ambition and believe that every woman is  beautiful. Established in 1946, the company continues to provide beauty products which help women across the globe express their beauty and confidence. Another thing I love about this brand is its commitment and endless support to the campaign of breast cancer, along with special attention on  sustainability, citizenship and employee well-being.

Well now, here's my review of Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Milky Emulsion.

Name of the product:

Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Milky Emulsion

Here's what it claims

This milky emulsion claims to be 'a powerful brightening facial emulsion' , which help us get brighter and clearer face. The milky texture is absorbed fast and refreshing. It also contains natural elements which boosts the daily cycle of our skin. It also prevents and reduces dark spots and discolouration (just like what I need!) and thus makes skin smoother, clearer and have translucent complexion. Moreover, it protects skin from harmful damages which mostly take place during the day and maximise the power of the night cycle to revitalize the skin. It is also dermatologist and ophthalmologist - tested and most importantly, non - acnegenic and will not clog pores. 

One of the main reasons why I try this is because it focuses on the dark spots and discolouration. Those are two pressing  issues  I have with regards to my face. 

Besides, this product is created for and tested on Asian skin in Asia.

Seperti yang saya baca di kotak produk ini, bintik-bintik hitam di kilit wajah pada dasarnya diakibatkan oleh berbagai partikel jelek dan merusak yang terakumulasi di kilit wajah pada siang harı dan terbentuk menjadi bintik hitam saat malam harı. Karen itu, Estee Lauder, dengan teknologi terbarunya memanfaatkan siklus alami kulit untuk melakukan regenerasi dengan menggunakan formula yang lembut namun efektif dari bahan-bahan alami. Hasilnya, kulit akan lebih cerah, sehat dan translucent. Plus produk ini memang diciptakan untuk kulit Asia dan dites di kulit wajah Asia juga.

Price: USD 110,-

Aku belum tau persis berapa harganya untuk produk ini di Indonesia.


I love the simple, yet chic and elegant packaging. The color of the bottle is pearly white with touch of silver at the edge.  The logo of Crescent White is silvery circle. It has smooth triangle form with cap and Estée Lauder seal on the cap for new product.

What I have is the 3.4 oz or 100 ml so it's quite big.

The packaging
Where to buy:
You can definitely buy it directly at or through leading stores such as Sephora and Macy's. I personally bought it Macy's New York City.
Saya sempet lihat produk ini ditawarkan di toko online Indonesia tapi lupa apakah ready stock or out of stock.

How to use:

Pour adequate amount of the emulsion, pump it as needed. 
Remember, it's tick and rich so 2 pumps are enough for me. 
Apply it over your face and smooth it using your fingers.
I love doing a little massage while applying it.

It is suggested to use it day and night.


In love with its milky texture
I have to say that as the name suggested, the product is milky and rich.
I feel the skin instantly moisturised once I apply it on my face.
It is fast absorbing but, depending on your skin type, it may take a while to be fully absorbed. In my case, I usually wait for 10 - 15 minutes to ensure that the whole emulsion is well absorbed before applying other products such as serum or moisturiser. 

I have been using this product for the last 3 months, using approximately using more than half of the 100ml bottle. Too bad I am not always that diligent to use it AM and PM but I always use it in the morning. And yes, I do notice the development! My skin is brighter and healthier, plus some of the dark spots are reduced, although not completely gone. Well, I am being realistic and as long as the skin is healthy, I will continue. 

No filter .. My healthier skin now, using only the milky emulsion...too bad I forgot to take the 'before' photo :). You still see the dark spots here and there but much better.
The only notes I have here is that the emulsion is quite thick and in the warm temperatures of Indonesia, even in the morning, it can be a bit sticky and hot. I make sure I do it in an air-conditioned room. Moreover, it's quite pricey, apalagi jika kita rajin menggunakan di pagi dan malam hari menjelang tidur, agar efektifitas full cycle yang ditawarkan produk ini. I use the whole bottle in around 3 months. 

Nevertheless, all in all, I love this product!

I am already repurchasing my 2nd bottle and will stick to it for a while before I try others.
So, that's my review on Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Milky Emulsion.

Will you try the same product as well?

Or you have similar product you have been using as well.
Tell me what you think.

The freshest face of Estee Lauder for Modern Muse, Le Rogue 

smileeee :)

It was indeed my lucky day.
I met my lovely friends, went to Macy's, got to my favorite corner, Estee Lauder and found out that Kendall Jenner was in town. Well, in fact.. She was in Macy's, to promote the newest line in Estee Lauder's perfume, Modern Muse, Le Rogue.

And long story short, I bought the perfume, got one of the 120 special passes given to the Estee Lauder esteemed clients, and voilaaa...

wanna meet Kendall?

I personally have been an avid lover of Estee Lauder's products. And loving them ;). At least I have its compact powder, Kendall Jenner series' lipstick, Little Black Liner and the soft kohl pencil. 

some of my favorite lines :)

I have been a big fan particularly as Estee Lauder is one fo the companies fully supporting the Breast Cancer Awareness Raising campaign :). I can't wait to see what they have for the Pinktober and this year's breast cancer awareness raising campaign :). 
Way to go, Estee :)

At the Herald Square Cafe to be exact.

Herald Square Cafe

And we were served rasberry-infused water. Supeeer yum and healthy as well. 

lining uuuup :)

So after the lining up, we took the picture, got the perfume bottle signed by her, smiled to the official cameraman from Macy's (we are not allowed to use our own camera and that's why I took picture of my official photo :)), and had a little chitchat with her ;). 
Kendall was very friendly and nice indeed..

Super excited, super happy..

I proudly wore my fuschia-and-teal Lombok tenun jacket that day, adorned with my favorite shade of True Liar from Kendall Jenner's shades lipstick from Estee Lauder.

Well, all in all.. Again, it was my lucky day..
Have you met somenone famous in a special event like that? ;)
