        I started using Swiss Performing Extract when it first came out years ago. At the time I was a flight attendant battling the dryness in a pressurized airplane. Now I am battling facial dryness that comes with my senior years. What I love about this product is that it doesn't leave a greasy film like some other moisturizers. There have been times when it hasn't been available in inventory and I have been forced to use something else. The others simply can not hold a candle to Swiss Performing Extract!

        I have been using Estee Lauder products for about 10 years now and most of the products I used I have loved. This lotion did not perform as I expected after reading all the glowing reviews. It does moisturize but not enough, and my skin is not even dry; I am oily-combo. I am half way through the bottle and I don't see a difference in my skin. It's a good value but I don't think I would repurchase it. Some things that really bother me about it is the packaging and the smell. I really don't appreciate that the bottle comes without a pump; I don't understand why Estee Lauder does this with some of their products; even products from the drugstore have better packaging than this. I can never get the right amount of product by pouring it out. The smell is also not great in my opinion; it smells dated, like something my grandmother would use. For the price you can find something better, like the Hydrationist cream; that product really works and makes a visible difference.

            I remember seeing this in my mother's beauty stash and her skin was always lovely. I decided to try it because I was looking for a moisturizer I could really fall in love with. This is an incredible product and the way my skin absorbs it is amazing. It is well worth it to give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

                            I've used Swiss Performing Extract most of my adult life. Not a day goes by that I do not receive a wonderful compliment on my skin how great it looks. When I tell my age (60) they can hardly believe it. Thanks for keeping me young looking.

                                I stumbled across this little hidden treasure a few years ago. I've always moisturized my face, but never liked the way moisturizers felt until this one. I would describe it as a cross between a serum and a light oil based lotion. It's not heavy or greasy and it melts into your skin quickly. It gives moisture and lasts all day + it just feels good on your face. To me, the smell is divine.

                                Day application -I apply a small drop on cleansed skin, then primer + makeup/powder.

                                Night application - I apply a small drop and seal it with oil. The next morning my face is so soft.

                                I also use it as a base for my eye products and have never had any irritation to my eyes.

                                The only negative thing I can say is the delivery system. It does not come with any type of pump, but fortunately I had one from a previous Estee serum product that fits this bottle so I just use that and discard the gold lid. One small pump is all you need. Less is more. Just press it into your skin.

                                It may look pricey, but it's a large bottle and I get a full years use out of it and that's using it 2x per day. I also agree with other viewers who said that it is an excellent cuticle product as well.

                                I'm not sure why this isn't on every Estee Lauder counter. I usually have to ask for it or order it. Some of the EL reps didn't even know what I was asking for! Estee was way ahead of her time when she created this. Its one of the only products I have constantly repurchased throughout the years. Please never discontinue or change this formula.

                                    I have been using this product for 30 years. My mom taught me the importance of taking care of my skin at an early age and now I am doing the same for my daughter. Swiss Performing is one of my staples. I moisture my face with it every morning before applying my makeup. It makes my skin radiant and smooth all day.
