Review: Overnight Love With Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Complex II

It  has been more than a month since Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Complex II has been officially launched. I was thrilled to be at the soft launch and it was frustrating to keep this as a secret for a month before the official launch. I have finally touched the mark of using it for a month and ready to share my thoughts with you. Just do bare in mind that I have not tried the previous Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, therefore I couldn’t make a comparison with the new improved formula.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (ANR) Synchronized Recovery Complex II

This serum is a powerful formula that supports night time skin purification process  and with the new ChronoluxCB™ Technology combines potent Catabolysis and Chronolux™ technologies adds greater power of cellular purification. In other words, it helps to maximize the strength of your natural skin healing at night. Catabolysis activities helps your skin cells to eliminate internal debris and such activity declines as we age and becomes desynchonized at night.

  • Catabolysis Technology (Purifying)

An active ingredient includes algae and yeast extract that is proven to help skin cells to increase their natural Catabolysis activity.

  • Chronolux™ Technology (Synchonizing) 

A powerful, patented clocl gene technology that help to support the natural synchonization of skin’s night repair process.

As a result to the optimized night skin repair, skin feels smoother, hydrated, stronger, translucent and even toned.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (ANR) Synchronized Recovery Complex II - Dropper

It comes in an amber dropper bottle and the texture of the serum is light and gel-like form, easily absorbed onto my skin without feeling greasy. Although it is fragrance-free, I found that it has an intense tea-like scent which I love but not for everybody’s liking. As to the name, this is only meant to use at night, best to go with before bed time.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (ANR) Synchronized Recovery Complex II - Before and After

Although it wasn’t a drastic change but I felt the results just after a night. My skin felt smoother, hydrated and less oily over my t-zone the next day. This before and after is a month of using this serum. I know that on the after picture, I have a bit of breakout on the forehead and chin but it’s because that I have recently tried a new toner that I’m suspecting that could be the culprit. I find that my nasobial line is not as deep and my skin appears brighter plus radiant.

Here is a close up and you could see that my skin looks more plumped than before.

Verdict?

I love this serum! Although it is pricey but you only use it once a day, particularly at night and just a few drops. It keeps my skin so well hydrated especially even after I did my derma rolling and it does help to fade acne marks periodically. Even my BF, who never likes to apply skin care on his face finds that it hydrates and doesn’t feel oily on his skin. This is coming from a guy who literally doesn’t like to apply anything on his face no matter how many times I told him to.

Review: Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality 2-Step Treatment, Clearer & Radiant Skin Effortlessly

When it comes to home facial treatment such as mask, I’m almost obsessed with it especially when it comes to clay mask. Maybe because I used to have crazy bad breakouts and by applying mask, it does help to relief  my troubled skin as time goes by. Along with Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil, I was introduced to this 2-Step treatment

.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality 2-Step Treatment 2
‘Combining  a Detoxifying Clay Mask with a Nutrient infusing Gel Mask , this radiance boosting, dual action treatment helps to promote skin’s harmony and balance. It is empowered by the highly potent Pomegranate Nectar Infusion and including hydrating Hyaluronic Acid. The clay mask deep cleanses pores and surface impurities while the gel mask instantly replenishes and rebalance skin’s moisture levels. Skin appears clearer, healthier and more radiant.’

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality 2-Step Treatment - Texture

It comes in a plastic jar but I didn’t feel like this packaging is shabby like how I felt for the essence oil.  What’s interesting is that the separator that divides the two mask shapes like yin and yang. It does come with a separate plastic cover besides the jar lid and I’m always worried that whenever I try to secure the plastic cover, I might mistaken the wrong side of the mask.

The wash-off clay mask texture is really light like whipped cream, while the leave-on gel mask is thick but easily absorb into my skin. This is recommended to be used 2-3 times a week, first to apply the clay mask and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. This is one of the clay mask that I have tried that doesn’t dry then harden and this easily to be washed off. For the gel mask is similar to sleeping mask concept, I applied if after my moisturiser.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil - Weekly Progress

As I went on to try it for a month, my skin became clearer and more lively each week even my acne scar marks were fading. I swear I did not use any scar gel treatment when I’m using this.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil - Weekly Progress Close Up

Here is a close up of each week differences. The changes aren’t drastic but can be seen that my skin looks so much more healthier and plumped. Not convinced? Check out the images below.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil - Before and After

Here is a comparison of before and after. On before my skin is dull, visible acne scarring on the forehead and looks dehydrated too. On the after I can see my skin become healthier, more radiant than ever! To be honest, I also felt my skin became smoother than before.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil - Before and After Close Up

Here is the close up for before and after.  It felt good that for this one month I hardly gotten any breakout which meant a lot to me as I usually get breakouts weekly. I’m not sure if its the supplement that I’m taking but I’m pretty sure that this made my skin so much clearer than ever. I know this could be a bad habit but I kept touching my face to feel how soft it is!

Verdict?

This treatment has been treating my skin so well and I love that my skin is acne free and healthy! Another thing that I was surprised with this treatment is, the next morning my skin look so brighten. I thought I was being pale in the morning but I notice that this happen only after when I did this treatment the night before. In a way that it also helped to brighten my skin and it is that bright that my body look so tan now. Should I start using this on my body?

Review: Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil Promotes Skin Luminosity From Inside Out

Besides Jojoba or olive oil, I never thought of having to apply any kinds of oil onto my face. Those who have combination to oily skin will understand my concern over oil-based skin care because we just don’t want our skin to be any more oily. However, about a month ago, I was introduced to use this essence by Estee Lauder and I challenged myself to use it because oil-based skin care products can be beneficial if you found the right one.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil 2

‘Like a “vitamin-booster” for skin, this silky blend of nourishing oils helps to revitalize, fortify and protect skin. Packed with the power of pure Pomegranate extract plus nourishing natural lipids and skin-essential Vitamin E, Radiant Vitality Essence Oil’s light texture absorbs instantly and helps to rebuild skin’s natural lipid barrier to help resist irritation and moisture loss. Skin is left feeling re-energized with a radiant, rosy glow and a softer, smoother feel.”

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil - Bottle

It comes in a plastic droplet bottle which is one of my favorite type of bottle. Coming from Estee Lauder, I thought the bottle looked a little shabby since its plastic. The great thing about using this oil-based essence is, you know how the outer bottle could get oily after a while of using it oil-based skin care but this just stays clean very well.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil - Texture

The oil is clear and transparent and the scent is lovely. I don’t know how a pomegranate smells like before but this smells so refreshing, sweet with floral-like scent. As you can see, once I have massage the oil onto my skin, it doesn’t look too oily at all. Since it is an oil-based skin care, I only use it at night before my moisturiser. Just 4-5 drops enough to massage it onto my entire face. I tried using it during the day but it turned out to be too oily for me but if you have normal to dry skin, you can always use it day and night.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil - Weekly Progress

Here is my journey of using it for a month and you can definitely tell the difference. Overall my skin gradually became more healthier and luminous.

  • Week 1 – My skin looked yellow with acne scarring on my forehead and dull.
  • Week 2 – My skin seems slightly rosier, smoother and plumped.
  • Week 3 –  The acne scarring on my forehead began to fade
  • Week 4 – My skin looks really healthy, radiant and plumped.

Pardon me on the swollen left eye of Week 4 image, as recently the hives decided to pay me a visit and it has to pick to attack me on my face. It wasn’t easy to feel swollen on one side of my face throughout the day.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil - Weekly Progress Close Up

Here is a close up to my face.

  • Week 1 – Visible acne scarring on my cheeks  and open pores.
  • Week 2 – Plumped, smoother and glowing skin
  • Week 3 – Noticeable disappearance of acne scars
  • Week 4 – Skin looked radiant and healthy, less yellow undertone.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil - Before and After

Here’s to compare before I started using the oil and four weeks later. By all means, the before was taken before I start using the oil which means a week before Week 1.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil - Before and After Close Up

Also, another close up of before and after. Can you tell that my skin look so much more healthier now?

Verdict?

I was really sceptical about this oil and doubted that it could possibly do anything for my face. As I use it every night, I also enjoy massaging this oil onto my face and massaging promotes blood circulation. I believe what this oil did is that it helped my skin cells to regenerate from inside, plumped them up and became healthier, as a result you can see my skin improved from yellow undertone, acne scarring and radiance. Even for my skin type, I could still benefit from it and what can I say, this is one oil that I can trust to make my skin better!This is also economical because although I have used it for a month, I only used up 1/8 of the entire bottle.
