Live Luxe

Trying out a new beauty product is always a gamble.
Here, our team members put their favorite Estée Lauder
innovations through a #DesksideTestDrive—so you
know exactly what you're getting when you click to buy.

Meet Elena Wood, Manager of Global Skincare Product Development. Fun fact: Elena is a legacy at Estée Lauder! Her mother worked for the company when she was pregnant with Elena, so the brand has been a significant part of her life. Elena also has the enviable job of helping to formulate a wide variety of our skincare, which means she gets to constantly test and try the latest and greatest new products. She works closely with our research and development teams in the labs to ensure that everything we create is not only effective, but looks, feels and smells great, too.

Here, Elena shows off one of her favorite masks, the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Transformative Thermal Ritual, which she helped develop. It's inspired by hot stone massage, so you get a spa-like experience, right in the comfort of your own bathroom. "I can't decide what I love more about this mask," Elena explains. "The comforting hot stone massage experience, or the incredible way it makes my skin look the next morning. It's the ultimate nourishing self-treat."

Watch above to see how to give your skin a pro-level pick-me-up—no appointment necessary.
