Product presentation: Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

For a long time, I had trouble understanding exactly what Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair (or ANR) serum was.

If I look at Estée Lauder’s communication, I underst& that it’s an anti-aging serum. But more specifically, what does it contain to make it effective sầu against the signs of skin aging?

The Estée Lauder brand never really communicated on the formula of the sản phẩm, nor on the ingredients it contains. Their communication approach about the formula is kind of “old-fashioned”, và it’s funny because I realized that very few companies work lượt thích this now.

Having looked at so many formulas under a microscope and checking the ingredients of the products I use, it felt so weird khổng lồ me, to see a products that had no highlighted ingredients and talked about very abstract concepts like “the powerful ChronoluxCB™ technology”. This ingredient is supposed khổng lồ “stimulate the natural purification of skin cells & help them to lớn regenerate while you sleep”.

I must admit that nowadays, I need a few more concrete arguments khổng lồ buy a product. This is clearly the reason why I had never taken the plunge with the ANR until recently (well… that, và its exorbitant price).

But last year, I took an interest in fermented ingredients because I was writing a Focus article on the topic và I realized that the ANR contained a lot of probiotics in its composition.

Even if the fermented ingredients were not part of the original formula, they are now at the heart of the Advanced Night Repair formula, with Bifida Ferment Lysate as the second ingredient in quantity. This ingredient is particularly effective sầu in repairing and soothing the skin!

This small brown vial has indeed been a repairing & regenerating serum since its creation in 1982. As we know that inflammation is an important cause of accelerated skin aging, it’s a great thing!

It’s also one of the first skincare products that used hyaluronic acid in its composition, for a long-lasting moisturizing effect.

During the course of its numerous reformulations, Estée Lauder has also added antioxidant ingredients (including Kola nut, naturally rich in caffeine) khổng lồ the formula of its best-selling hàng hóa. The brvà claims that its small brown bottle can protect the skin against 90% of the free radicals responsible for premature skin aging.

In 2009, the br& also included in its formula the famous ChronoluxCB technology, which is designed to optimize the skin’s natural night repair mechanism so that it regains all its radiance.

In 2013, the brand combined this công nghệ with catabolism technology, and added a complex of fermented ingredients composed of algae and yeast (Bifida Ferment Lysate), which boosts the skin’s natural cellular regeneration & also its self-repair potential.

With more than 25 existing và registered patents, the serum is now called Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II.

If I summarize, this ANR serum is therefore effective sầu on:– skin repair, for soothed skin that is more resistant to environmental aggression that causes it lớn age faster,– deep and long-lasting hydration (dehydrated skin generally appears older),– anti-oxidant (& therefore anti-aging) protection against không lấy phí radicals that can accelerate premature skin aging.


My experience:

I decided to use Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair (or ANR) serum this winter because I thought it would be a good ally for my irritated skin because of retinol (yes, right now, my only criteria to lớn try a new skincare sản phẩm is: “Is it soothing?” Thank you so much, retinol!).

And also, I’m 40 now, so it seemed legit for me khổng lồ try this cult favorite skincare sản phẩm for mature skin ?

Considering the price, I thought that the 30ml format would be enough to get a feel of the product. The bottle lasted me about 3 months, using it every night before my night cream.

The texture is very pleasant, quite lightweight & is absorbed quickly inlớn the skin, without leaving a greasy film (I don’t know why, I was convinced that it would be a very rich sản phẩm, and it’s really not at all). It’s perfect for my dehydrated combination skin!



I heard and read a lot of Reviews of the Advanced Night Repair serum that talked about a “refreshed skin” in the morning.

I can’t really say that this is the result I had, but however, I really appreciated its immediate soothing và moisturizing effect. It was very pleasant!

As for its anti-aging effect, it will be difficult to lớn judge because it’s an anti-oxidant effect, therefore rather preventive & not really visible in the short term. Now I am a bạn of anti-oxidant products that I have sầu been using in my skincare routine for ages (so I definitely believe sầu in their long-term effect!).


Value for money:

That’s where I’m a little bit skeptical about this product.

I can’t understvà its price. Especially if I just look at the formula & its ingredients.

Obviously, Estée Lauder is a luxury skincare brvà và at the time it was created, the Advanced Night Repair serum was unique and revolutionary.

Its formula is also patented (patents are very expensive sầu for a brand) but quite honestly, I think you can find products that give sầu similar results for 1/3 of the price (I’ll have sầu the opportunity lớn tell more about some of them in the future) (Edit: you can see the Reviews of the “dupes” at the kết thúc of this one, in the nhận xét comparison
