Beauty Product Review: Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum Review

What is it – Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum

What it claims to do – It is an anti-ageing serum by Estee Lauder which has been around for almost 30 years. They recently reformulated the original Advanced Night Repair Serum and replaced it with Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II. The ANR serum claims to repair past visible damage and helps protect the skin’s future. This deep- and fast-penetrating serum reduces the look of multiple signs of ageing caused by the environmental assaults of modern life. Skin looks smoother and less lined, younger, more radiant and even-toned.

Key Ingredients – Hyaluronic Acid and Chronolux™ Power Signal Technology

Skin type/ texture: Oily Skin

Have been using it for: 3-6 Months

I use it: In the night

I loved the royal luxurious packaging of this serum. It is peachy in colour with no fragrance and gets absorbed really quickly. After regular use, it made my skin soft and supple. I could see an improvement in my skin texture. Although it did help with a few of my skin concerns I didn’t see much difference on my skin. It didn’t do anything for my pigmentation, acne or gave me super glowing skin (as I was expecting). The main thing which this product promise is to remove the signs of ageing. Since I am not experiencing any ageing problems, I didn’t see any differences but it did help my parents with their fine lines as they also started using this along with me.

Before I begin giving you a verdict to the new variant of the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum, I have to state that I have been using ANR for a few years now. Hence, when they launched an upgraded formulation and my old bottle was almost over, I naturally didn’t bat an eyelid before the purchase. 

I have loved ANR because I love to keep my routine simple and too many products (even forced samples) overwhelm me. Though it’s called the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum, it is both an AM – PM serum. It’s uncomplicated. Let me mention here that one needs to follow the serum with a moisturizer. And sunscreen in the day is a no brainer

Pros – It leaves my skin hydrated. I use a little bit on my lips as well. Easily absorbed, my skin is comfortable using it. I have used it after a day on the beach and my skin was soothed. No stinging or sensitivity. Also, it’s one serum for every day and everybody. I have been using it since my mid 20’s. Though I have tried other serums over the years, I keep on returning to this one. It’s a great pick me up for the days I am exhausted, and I need freshness. Works great to prep skin for makeup. That Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum glow is my favourite. 

Cons – If one does not like to use a moisturizer and sunscreen, it is not for them. Hyaluronic acid needs to derive its moisturize from somewhere. That is the same for any formulation with hyaluronic acid. And any anti-ageing guide will emphasize on sunscreen for protection. Also, yes, some might find it to be on the expensive side. 

To me, I would rather invest in one all-rounder product, than 5-6 bottles of average formulations and then wonder how to layer them. It fits my active life. 

Old ANR V/S New the new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex – Till now, I find the old and new formulation to behave similarly on my skin. I am yet to notice any dramatic difference in the feel of it. In fact, I am quite relieved that they have kept the texture of the product to be the same. It is free of parabens, phthalates, sulfites, sulfates, and mineral oil. Also, no synthetic fragrances!

The product description mentions protection from blue light, infrared, micro dust, pollution and 8hrs antioxidant protection. With the amount of time, I spend with my gadgets, this seems apt. Though for me to validate it, will take a while. I do feel this hydrates my skin more than the older formulation, however, I have not timed the 72 hours hydration claim. Also, it does absorb faster. I did use a few drops of the old ANR on one half of my face and the new one on the other.  

The new one comes in a glass bottle and can be recycled. I have read of Estée Lauder working on their packaging to be more sustainable. That for me is a plus.

I use it: Daily

By far the best feature of the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum is the consistency. The new formula has a silky-smooth consistency which allows the serum to penetrate quickly into the skin. Despite the serum bearing a lightweight texture it does provide a sufficient boost of hydration, this is why it’s the most perfect serum for all skin types. A 50ml bottle has lasted me more than 6 months-I use this 5 days a week (morning and night) so a little really goes a long way. I must admit the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum is quite expensive however I do think it’s worth every penny. Best to grab it during Black Friday if you can☺️.

When I started using the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum, I initially did not notice anything major in the first week. But I continued using it for another month especially as December kicked in! Temperature goes really down near Shivalik Hills (Lower Himalayas) where I stay and I was genuinely surprised to find my skin PLUMP even in the freezing cold winter! It held in the moisture well! Ever since then, this has become my staple product in my closet!

Age Range: 25-34

I live in: Dry weather & City pollution

Skin type/ texture: Both Sensitive Skin as well as Combination Skin (Oily T-zone and Dry Cheeks)

I have been using it for: 6-12 Months

I use it: In the night

I saw instant results with the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum. After the first use, my skin felt hydrated, nourished, and I could see a definite reduction in blemishes. Within 1 month of regular use, I could see amazing results: 

  1. The reduced texture on my skin
  2. My skin felt more hydrated and healthy
  3. There was a subtle glow in the skin and it had fewer blemishes
  4. Drastic reduction in dry skin patches on my cheeks and the redness had reduced. 

Overall, I was experiencing a healthier skin texture and felt more confident. Fewer breakouts and it made my skin look much younger too! My skin thanks me every day ever since I started using this! I initially tried a mini version of this product and was impressed enough to make an investment in the full-sized version that costs around INR 7,900/ $100 but it lasted me for more than 6 months, so totally worth it.

Broadcaster Verdict: Holy Grail item on my beauty shelf!
