Never before has a beauty product blown me away like Estée Lauder’s new Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II serum. Seriously, an F5 tornado has nothing on this serum. Usually skin care products need a little time before they start showing visible results, and especially anti-aging products often require a bit of patience, but the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum already showed drastic results even after the first use. No wonder that I wanted to try the Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion as well, and so earlier this month I got my hands on it. Time for a review of (or maybe I should call it an ode to) my two favorite skin care products of the moment!
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II
The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum comes in a dark brown slightly transparent bottle with a gold-colored cap. The dropper makes the product very hygienic to use and makes it very easy to get the right amount of product. The serum itself has a transparent light orangey brown color and is quite runny. Think something between gel and water. It isn’t odorless, but the smell is very neutral and subtle so it doesn’t bother me at all.
So what does this serum do exactly? Well, you can find all the exact details in my September blog post, but this is what it comes down to: the serum stops or at least slows down skin aging and counters the harmful effects of lack of sleep on the skin. And it does that instantly, because like I said, the new Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum literally changed the condition of my skin overnight. I’m a bad sleeper, I often wake up during the night and when I finally manage to fall asleep I often feel restless and have nightmares. So waking up looking all fresh-faced is not what I do. Until now, that is, because ever since I started using the Estée Lauder Night Repair serum my skin looks fuller and more supple and it basically looks a lot less scary in the morning. I still don’t roll out of bed looking like a supermodel, but at least I don’t look like I just tried breaking the world record for not sleeping anymore. Seriously, what a difference this serum makes! Even in my just-out-of-bed mode and with crusty sleepy eyes I can clearly see that the serum does one hell of a job plumping my skin during the night. It’s pretty amazing!
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion
The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion does for the eye contour what the Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II does for the skin, and that is erase the signs of lack of sleep and fight skin aging. Just like the face serum the eye serum comes in a brown semi-transparent bottle with a gold-colored cap, but it has a pump instead of a dropper. So the packaging is slightly different, but again it is very easy to use and hygienic. The eye serum is odorless, white and slightly thicker than the face serum, but just like face serum the Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion is easy to apply and fast absorbing.
Since I was so impressed with the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair face serum I had no choice but to try the eye serum as well to see if it would wow me just as much. So did it? Well, I’ve been using the Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion twice a day for a little over two weeks now, and I’m definitely not disappointed. My eye contour looks fresh and healthy. The changes aren’t as drastic as with the Advanced Night Repair serum, but I think that’s because the targeted area is a lot smaller. I mean, if you suddenly wake up with plump radiant skin, well, that shows. But I guess that a more awake-looking eye contour is easier to miss. Also, apart from a few occasional sleep lines I don’t have any real wrinkles around my eyes yet, so there isn’t much room for improvement to begin with. That said, I do think it’s extremely important to prevent rather than treat skin aging, and I’m sure that the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Fusion does exactly that.
Bottom line? The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II and the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion are both absolute keepers. It still amazes me how much the face serum transforms my skin at night! And the eye serum does a great job as well, because it contains all the right ingredients to keep the skin around my eyes fresh, awake and hopefully also youthful and wrinkle-free. Reasons enough to bombard these two precious gems to favorites!
The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II (30 ml) and the Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion (15 ml) are available for respectively 92 and 88 CHF.
