When it comes to skincare, I am often left feeling a little overwhelmed by how many different products there are and knowing which product to use at each step and I tend to favour a rather simplistic skincare routine. One of my favourite skincare products to use is serum, as my dry skin skin can’t get enough of it and I love trying new serums especially when the seasons change and my skin tends to freak out. The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II is potentially one of the most hyped skincare products in the beauty community, and I didn’t really understand the hype of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair range until I tried the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair which is one of the best eye serums I’ve ever tried.
The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II £70 is Estée Lauder’s bestselling anti-ageing serum and is available in a 30ml or 50ml bottle, and is suitable for all skin types. It claims to reduce the look of all key signs of ageing, has been tested and proven on over 500 women and is said to maximise the power of the skin’s natural nighttime renewal with their exclusive ChronoluxCB™ Technology. There is a lot of science behind the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II, but I wanted to write a concise list of bullet points rather than bore you with the science behind it..
Lines and wrinkles look significantly reduced.
More than 75% of women felt their skin looked more youthful.
Skin feels smoother, hydrated, stronger.
82% felt their skin was instantly hydrated.
Skin looks younger, radiant, more even toned.
83% of women felt their skin looked healthier, fresher, more rested.
The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II is said to be ideal for; multiple signs of aging, visible age prevention, dryness, dehydration, lines, wrinkles, dullness and a loss of radiance.
The serum has an oil-free formula which is also fragrance free and is non-comedogenic so it won’t block your pores which is always music to my ears as I hate serums which feel like they’re suffocating my skin, and my skin breaks out quite easily so I always favour non-comedogenic formulas where skincare is concerned.
How to use the Advanced Night Repair?!
1. Before you apply your moisturiser, apply a drop on each fingertip of one hand.
2. Touch fingertips of both hands together.
3. Massage serum over face and neck, starting at the centre, outward.
The serum is packaged within a brown plastic bottle which helps to protect the potency of its ingredients, and you apply the serum by squeezing the rubber tip on the lid which is connected to a pipette which you can then dispense onto your fingertips.
The serum has a slight peachy brown tone to it which at first didn’t look too appealing, but after a couple of uses it didn’t bother me at all. The consistency of the Advanced Night Repair is quite thin, but it does feel a little slimey in comparison to say the Vichy Aqualia Serum but it doesn’t leave my skin feeling slimey thankfully, but I do like to be able to feel the serum on my skin which might sound odd but then I feel as if it’s doing something to my skin.
The first time I tried this serum I dispensed a drop onto the back of my hand, and massaged it in to feel the consistency and I knew I liked it and never thought any more of it. However the hand I had massaged the serum into, had a massive bruise across it from when I had my operation a couple of weeks ago and the bruise wouldn’t disappear whatsoever, until I had applied this serum – the bruise considerably reduced within six hours which blew my mind. There are no claims about its repairing ability for bruises, but it genuinely made such a massive difference that I couldn’t wait to smother my face in it.
I don’t have any wrinkles yet, but prevention is most better than cure so I’m doing everything I can to keep them at bay, but lets face it.. they’re inevitable, but I love that serum helps to repair the skin whilst I sleep and help to thoroughly hydrate it thanks to hyaluronic acid. Not only does this Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair hydrate and repair the skin, it also helps to fade my acne scarring a lot quicker than any other skincare product I’ve tried which is possibly my favourite benefit I’ve witnessed so far.
There is absolutely no doubt that the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II is an expensive product, because it is but you only need one generous drop each night and I can envisage this 50ml bottle lasting for at least four to six months which breaks the price down to £11.66 per month which is a little less painful, however if you’ve always wanted to try this serum, now is the perfect time as it’s part of the House of Fraser Beauty Event.
