At The Estée Lauder Companies, the safety of our consumers is our highest priority. We utilize the latest advances in non-animal safety testing and human volunteer testing to deliver products of the highest safety and quality to our consumers. We do not test our products or ingredients on animals, or ask others to test on our behalf, except where required by law. We are proud that we were one of the first cosmetic companies to establish that cosmetic safety can be demonstrated by non‐animal testing methods. There are, however, still some countries that believe they need to conduct or require animal testing in order to validate the safety of cosmetic ingredients or products. Our Company and all of our brands remain dedicated to the elimination of animal testing on all cosmetic products and ingredients worldwide. We believe that animal testing should not be needed to validate safety of cosmetic products or ingredients and we are encouraging the use of alternatives and the elimination of such animal testing globally.

Estée E-List Australia Loyalty Program FAQs
What is the Estée E-List Australia loyalty program?
The Estée E-List Australia loyalty program is your front row seat to the best in beauty. Hollywood may have its A-list, but when it comes to beauty, there’s only one list you want to be on: the Estée E-List. Receive instant access to e-xclusives and e-rresistibles. Accumulate points, unlock rewards and enjoy more e-mazing treats and experiences. And this is only the beginning….
How do I join the Estée E-List Australia? Does it cost anything?
You can join the Estée E-List Australia loyalty program by signing up at esteelauder.com.au/elist and following the prompts to register. In order to sign up, you must provide your name, and email address. To enjoy the full benefits of the program, you will also need an account. If you do not have an account, you can create one by providing your name, gender, date of birth, mailing address, mobile phone and creating a password. There is no cost to join.
Who is eligible to join the Estée E-List Australia?
The Estée E-List Australia loyalty program is available to individuals who are legal residents of Australia and at least 18 years of age or older and who provide and maintain a valid email address. Employees of The Estée Lauder Companies and individuals employed by our business partners or vendors are eligible for membership for personal use only, but may be excluded from certain program benefits.
What am I agreeing to by joining the Estée E-List Australia?
What terms govern the Estée E-List Australia?
Please refer to the Estée E-List Australia Loyalty Program: Terms & Conditions of Participation for the full list of program terms.
How does the Estée E-List Australia work?
The Estée E-List Australia is a loyalty program that rewards customers for purchasing Estée Lauder products and participating in certain brand experiences. It is a tier-based program determined by the number of points a member has earned within a single year on eligible purchases and through qualifying activities, beginning on the date when you enroll. There are 3 tiers with associated benefits:
|Tier 1, Be Excited||0 – 249 points|
|Tier 2, Be Enthusiastic||250 – 499 points|
|Tier 3, Be Envied||500 + points|
When you join, you’ll automatically be placed in Tier 1, Be Excited and be eligible for all the benefits Tier 1 members receive. Once you earn at least 250 points in your first year, you’ll be automatically moved up to Tier 2, Be Enthusiastic. If you earn 500 points or more in your first year, you’ll qualify for Tier 3, Be Envied.
Your status in a particular tier is good for the year in which you qualify for that tier and the following full year. After that, you’ll need to earn enough points to qualify for that tier each year. For example, if you qualify for Tier 2, Be Enthusiastic, during your first year, you’ll maintain Be Enthusiastic status during your second year. But, if you earn less than 250 points on eligible purchases during your second year, you’ll drop back down to Tier 1, Be Excited status on your second anniversary date.
The higher the tier, the better the benefits.
