I hope all of you remember some time back I did a post on Sheshido Ultimute Power Infusing Concentrate and how I think in my 30's I want to have more specialized skincare regime than before. During my 20's one of my all time favorite brand for fragrances was Estee Lauder. My first designer fragrance was Intuition by Estee Lauder, sweet memory of which is still embedded in my mind. In time, I discovered that Estee Lauder does not only create beautiful fragrances (my other favorites: Pleasures, Pleasures Intense, Pure White Linen, Modern Muse) but also gorgeous makeup and luxury skincare. Over the years, I looked up to this brand for luxury fragrances and now when I really want to invest in anti-ageing skin care regime I picked one of Estee Lauder's best sellers - Advanced Night Repair serum.
" B e a u t y S l e e p i s r e a l ...."
The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum comes in a slightly transparent dark brown bottle with a gold colored cap. It comes with a dropper which makes it so hygienic to use and gives you more control on the amount of product you need every time. The texture of the serum is quite watery with a very mild scent. The consistency, however is dense but it absorbs nicely in the skin. I would say I am not too fond of the scent it has though it is very light almost odourless: I feel it has a bit of a 'medicated' feel to it. On the outside, the packaging is of light bluish shade with the brand's seal in gold on top which looks beautiful! Fighting all the key signs of ageing, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum seemed like the best choice. I have always preferred skincare products made specifically for night time. I believe a product works best on a nicely cleansed skin while you are asleep. As a nightly ritual, I cleanse my face thoroughly (you can use Estee Lauder's cleansers) and pat dry. I take around 2 - 3 drops of the serum and massage a little on my fingertips. Then I smooth in gently with my fingertips all over my face and neck in an outward motion.
It has been more than two weeks now that I am using Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum. It has a combination of vitamins and anti-oxidants that aim to repair the skin while you sleep. The brand spent great amount of time and effort to find out the effects of lack of sleep on our skin and finally created a formula that combats skin ageing in a much better way. Skin cells of bad sleepers (count me in!) do not recover well during the night, moreover skin looses a lot of moisture as well hence the signs of ageing. With ChromoluxCB Technology, cell renewal and cell regeneration gets a boost to make your skin feel smoother, younger and more radiant. It is ideal for:
Multiple Signs of Ageing
Visible Age Prevention
Lines and Wrinkles
Dullness, Loss of Radiance
Dullness, Loss of Radiance
In two weeks, I have felt that my skin looks brighter and plumped up. Initially, I thought it was due to me sleeping better at night and over weekends. But in time I realized that it was actually Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum doing its work gradually. It will not improve my skin appearance overnight but I am sure I will see more improvement in time. I believe this 50 ml bottle will be enough for more than 2 months. I will show up later with an update when I have used more than half the bottle. The serum is formulated for all skin types so do not worry about break-outs or clogged pores. I, however do not use a moisturizer when I apply this serum. If you are someone like me who loves to give luxury products a try, go for this one!
