MsChikee Review: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex serum

02 September 2011

Ok let's start with the name right here, right now.. how mouthful is that?! It's like one of those gourmet dishes with detailed name - Roast lamb with sweet potato and parsnip mash with mushroom sauce infused with rosemary and thyme. But hats off to Estee Lauder for having such a descriptive name enough for consumers to understand what they are getting out it.

I've been using this for 6 weeks and I am telling you now this is by far my new skin BFF. It is going to be a staple in my skin care from now on until my face requires new shizz to be slapped on to keep it all together *grin*

The Packaging:

Fabulous packaging! Any product that is not in a pot is a plus for me. The medicine dropper thing is just brilliant! It's very easy to control how much product you want and...and.. you can literally get the last drop of the product because you can reach all four corners of the base and get the product out!

The bottle is HUGE so it's not really travel friendly but would you really leave this behind? no you don't.. you just need to make space for it.

The Serum

It's not oily as the other serums that I've tried (ie Clinique Turnaround concentrate). And I find that this sinks in the skin faster than other serums. This works better with a night cream on top of it. I am using another Estee Lauder moituriser which is yet to be blogged.
You have to be religious in applying this every night (if you can). Other women use it 2x a day but I don't need that frequency just yet so I only use it at night.

Overall thought on the product

I LOVE IT! I give it all the possible stars you can give a product.

There is no drastic change in my skin that a photo will be able to capture because as much as I'd like to fuss over this, I am only in my early 30s. Although, I have lines (where it counts) that weren't there 2-3 years ago, it is still slightly unnoticeable to the less intrusive stares.

I decided to use this product with one aim and one aim only, to delay ageing and maybe improve my skin's ability to heal overnight from any free radicals that my skin get exposed to on a daily basis... so yeah make that 2 aims!

And for 6 weeks, I've noticed:

1. my skin's texture is firmer and smoother
2. any spot that I squeezed (i know i know, bad habit) heals overnight
3. my frown line (between my brows) is a little bit relaxed since using it. It's not gone like I would hope but it's rather on a  i-don't-look-like-I-am-angry state which is great!
4. I wake up to much hydrated and healthier looking skin
5. Makeup application is now a treat more than anything. 

Definitely, one of the best addition in my skincare to date *applause*. This is the trouble, the older you get the more products you'll tend to use just to hold it together! I think I'll have to try the eye cream too soon. Once I justify the price then perhaps in a few weeks/months.

Saying all that, this shouldn't be the only thing that you're doing to keep your skin young and healthy. Eating right and having enough and regular sleeps help a lot. Fruits and veggies are your bestfriends and water is your lover.

Hope this information helps you. 

ps. thanks again to my lovely sisters for this wonderful gift :)
