Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Du Jour 10.26.09

So I know this is a cult item and have all seen our mothers use this, but I am not sold. I have been using this for two weeks now. I like it, but I do not know if it is really doing all that much and it smells kinda funky.

Anyway, This is the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum. It is a very light liquid that I use after I cleanse and before I moisturize. The reason I started using this was just to give my skin a bit of an extra hydration boost!

From the Estee Laude Website:

WHO SHOULD USE ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR?
Advanced Night Repair is for every woman, every night.

  • Based on solid, scientific findings and over 25 years of proven success, this is the one formula your skin shouldn't live without.
  • No matter your skintype, no matter your age, it helps your skin look younger and healthier.

WHY REPAIR AT NIGHT?
Studies show that nighttime is the right time to repair, because you can maximize existing natural processes that occur in your skin.
  • Since there's no need to fight off UV rays and other environmental assailants, skin can focus all of its energies on repair.
  • Skin is also more receptive to ingredients that will help restore and revitalize its appearance.


I have read reviews claiming that this serum is a miracle worker... not so much. I have heard it heals blemishes over night and yadda yadda. False, I have one and its still here! As for the moisturization benefits I have not seen too many results yet. I w ill try it for another month. As of now I will not be re-purchasing this. I will however update you all if my opinion changes!

Packaging.

Dropper in the cap- I like that it has a dropper, very easy and clean to use.
Runny, Liquid Texture.

Has anyone else tried this? Any thoughts?

  2. HI! I'm a new follower and fellow NYCer. Love your blog! I just looked at this last week and the sales rep was awesome-- VERY honest. She said this product is NOT one that you will feel immediately changes your skin or appearance. Rather, results are long term and are supposed to be preventative. So right now it won't feel like a miracle worker, but 5 yrs from now you should notice less signs of aging than if you were not using this product. Hope that helps!

  7. I agree it doesn't help spots heal overnight etc, but I've been using it and it's made my skin more receptive to moisturiser etc, its a preventor though, so it slows aging rather than reversing it x

  8. I love this stuff and I have been using it for years.. They have a new formula. Just give it some time :)

    This makes my skin feel more supple and bright when i wake up in the morning, i have a bit of glow. I went one week without it (waiting for the new formula) and my skin was horrible during the time i went without it. I hope this works for you ^.^

  17. Oh my gosh. I feel the same way. I purchased this because I truly WANTED to love it. I mean, who wouldn't? It is a 'legacy' serum, and 80 year old women who have been going to Lauder for years to get this, still buy it religiously! But I too, have questioned it's effectiveness. I always wondered if I wasn't giving it a fair shot, because I would give up after a few weeks. Now you are making me think it just may not be what we 'want' it to be.

  19. I love this product and sadly, I am on my last bottle.....I worked for Lauder for years and this was one of my holygrail products that I stock piled. I am going to hate to have to fork over the hefty price to use it...but I will. Over the years, if I ran out, my skin would pay the price. The reason I love it so much is because it helps the moisturizer sink into the layers of skin. Most of the time, your moisturizer sits on top of your skin. The hyaloronic acid and vitamins help to nutralize the ph balance and fight environmental aggressors as well as the aging process. It isn't a miracle in a bottle but nothing is. However, I definitely notice the difference when I don't have this product! :)
