Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex is the ultimate skincare essential. Long recommended by beauty editors world wide for its skin healing properties it has been relaunched a number of times with improvements but its basic formula has stayed the same since it first hit the shelves in 1982 as Night Repair.
Who’s it for
This is the ultimate product for people who want to slow down the effects of time by protecting and repairing their skin from the environment — the main cause of premature ageing. Estee Lauder say the long term results include a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, sagging and age spots.
The serum can be used by any age and any skin type both day and night before moisturising. If used at night it will help the skin to recover from any daily assaults and sun exposure. If used in the daytime it will help protect your skin from the environment.
Estee Lauder scientists understand the link between DNA damage and skin ageing. Hence its name – the serum’s patented formula supports the skin in its natural synchronization of repair processes. The skin’s natural ability for cellular repair slows down as we age. Advanced technology encourages your skin’s “clock genes” to maximise their DNA repair of damaged cells. This results in a long-term reduction in the appearance of visible ageing on the skin – lines and discolouration.
The serum also helps skin to repair past damage caused by the environment (including pollution and the sun’s harmful UV rays) with nature’s moisture locking ingredient Hyaluronic Acid and anti-oxidant ingredients. By neutralising environmentally-generated free radicals before they can damage your skin, Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex also helps protect your skin against ageing. Visible results include healthy, hydrated skin.
The feel of the serum is silky smooth and a little goes a long way. It quenches your skin’s thirst instantly on application which makes it ideal if you have dehydrated or sun burnt skin. But oily skin types can still use this product as its light fluid is easily absorbed. After use skin appears more radiant, firm and with no dull or flaky patches. The look of the skin after repeated use is soft, supple and healthy.
Price and Packaging
Its clinical, plain appearance (brown, glass bottle) shows that this product means serious business and doesn’t need fancy packaging to sell well. The serum is good value, retailing at £36 for 30ml and £49 for 50ml.
This is a super serum which not only makes your skin feel more youthful on application but can help it look more youthful with long term use. At JMA we say if you can only afford one prestige skin care product let it be this one. See also Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum.
Estee Lauder also do a treatment version of Advanced Night Repair called Advanced Night Repair Concentrate Martrix. It is 5x the concentration of the original and can be used as and when needed after over-exposure in the sun or for 21 consecutive days, every 3 – 4 months to help repair skin. It helps correct dehydration by rebuilding the skin’s natural moisture barrier to lock moisture in. Ingredients includes skin-strengthening lipids Linoleic Acid, Cholesterol and Wheat Bran. It is also recommended for use pre- and post-cosmetic surgery and contains anti-irritant ingredients.
