Most of the time I can predict if I’ll end up liking a skincare product. Some of them are great from the start, and there are some that I can’t stick with for long enough to say anything conclusive (maybe the scent bothers me too much, maybe my skin doesn’t react well to it…). But there are others, like Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion, that don’t seem to be doing much for a couple of months, and suddenly I notice real improvement!
I am probably one of the last people to try Estee Lauder‘s star skincare line, Advanced Night Repair. In short, the Advanced Night Repair products are packed with anti-oxidants. They are supposed to repair and prevent damage, moisturize, and keep the skin healthy. The particular claims of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion include pretty much everything: it should reduce fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, and dryness.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion (RRP in Belgium: 62,07 euros) comes in an almost opaque bottle with a pump. The pump doesn’t dispense too much product in one go, and I usually use one pump each time. The texture is pretty thin (it is a serum, not an eye cream). It is slightly pearlescent and fragrance-free. It is absorbed fast and leaves no greasy residue. Despite the fact that it is called “night repair,” it can, and is recommended for both morning and night. Since the texture is rather light, I prefer to layer an eye cream over it for bedtime. In the morning however, I can get away with this serum alone.
For the first two months and a half, I couldn’t quite put my finger on Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion. I think the skin around my eyes was a bit brighter, more hydrated, and more even-toned. In other words, “healthier.” But the result was so subtle I just wasn’t sure if I could say anything conclusive about it.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you might have heard me complain about my “bad eye.” Possibly as a result of sleeping on my right side most of the time, I have more dark circle under that eye, and it tends to be a bit more puffy. What’s more, a few months back I saw this fine line forming. In the beginning I wouldn’t see it unless I had makeup on (and no adequate moisturizer underneath), but gradually it was just there. I wasn’t making a big fuss, but naturally I wasn’t all that happy about it.
After using Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion for about 3 months, one morning I suddenly realized something: that fine line was more or less gone! Of course it didn’t happen overnight, but it was at that point that I actually noticed a very clear difference. I will keep using it, and hopefully no new fine line will start forming for a long, long time!
Here is the ingredient list if you are interested:
As you can see, it contains dimenthicone which I am not always a fan of in my skincare products. However, it doesn’t feel heavy or slippery, so it doesn’t bother me as much.
Bottom line: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion has definitely done a lot for my undereye area. Besides keeping it hydrated, even, and brighter, it has actually got rid of a fine line for me! I will keep using it, and hopefully it will hold any fine lines off for a long time. I am not mentally ready to co-exist in peace with those just yet! It is most probably not a product that will perform some kind of instant miracle, but after several months, maybe you will also notice an amazing improvement one day!
In other news, I started testing out the new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II about a month ago. I can’t say anything conclusive just yet, but hopefully given some time, it will also take me by surprise!
Have you tried anything from Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair? How did it work for you?
