Times are a changing as are formulas and one of the best reformulations has to be Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. Risky yes but what is a life without the odd chance or two? Boring that's what!
With all the new technology at our and brands fingertips it would be a sin not to make the most of such breakthroughs and that is exactly what this little serum/skincare miracle does. It hasn't be affectionately dubbed a good nights sleep in a bottle for nothing y'know!
If new scares you slightly then you can rest easy that although Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair has been upgraded of sorts all the qualities you know and love are still present only amplified. The texture of the serum remains the same - a light, silken liquid with a non-greasy feel that helps to brighten the skin, restore and of course hydrate with the added benefit of skin repair when used for a prolonged period. The older formula tended to sit on top of my skin rather than soak in but I can vouch that this does the polar opposite and instantly absorbs into the skin. Now seems like a good time to mention that going by previous use one 30ml bottle when used nightly tends to last me just over three months. £44 every three or so months can quickly add up so do bear that in mind.
So what is the main difference between the new souped up version and the old bedside favourite?
Well the original Estee Lauder Night Repair focused on repair hence the name where as the new serum combines the repair property with the ability to help the skin purify and heal on a grander and quicker scale. This time around it contains Hyaluronic Acid which we all know helps to lock in moisture and can aid in creating the optimal condition for skin's natural renewal process...not bad huh? Through in some antioxidants which of course help to clear the skin on a deeper level (the purifying aspect) but build a sturdy defence against environmental damage such as UV rays, pollution and all that city life can chuck its way!
Ingredients are all fine and dandy but does it work?
Heck yes it does and although primary marketed as anti-ageing product as someone in her twenties I can vouch that it does so much more than that, it brightens the skin, soothes and generally lives up to the great nights sleep in a bottle claim. If you want to awaken to radiant skin while helping to protect your complexion in the long run against both environmental damage and the ravages of age this little serum should be next on your hit list.
And yes loyal fans of the original night repair formula it has been discontinued and replaced with the advanced offering.
