Estee Lauder – Advanced Night Repair – Review

Posted by

In a Few Words
An iconic anti-aging serum that makes skin appear smoother and more radiant.

Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair is meant to prevent signs of aging, hydrate the skin, minimize lines and wrinkles, and add radiance. It is appropriate for all skin types, oil free, dermatologist tested, and won’t clog pores. Estee Lauder claims. “lines and wrinkles look significantly reduced. More than 75% of women felt their skin looked more youthful in just 4 weeks. Skin feels smoother, hydrated, stronger. 82% felt their skin was immediately hydrated. Skin looks younger, radiant, more even toned. 83% felt their skin looked healthier, fresher, more rested in just 4 weeks.” Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair comes in a plastic bottle with a dropper and 1 oz sells for about 65.00.

I used Advanced Night Repair 3-4 nights a week just before my moisturizer and applied it by pressing it into my skin. I used the entire 1 oz bottle over the span of about 2 months… and I’m so glad it’s gone. I did not like this serum, but before I give my opinion, I feel like I need to add a few caviots: I know anti-aging serums are long term products and are not overnight miracle workers and I acknowledge that I (28 year old) am probably not the target demographic. But, first of all, this iconic, $65.00 serum comes in a plastic, PLASTIC bottle and it feels cheap. Not cool. I could get over that if the serum itself did anything for me, but it didn’t. I was hoping to see more radiance and an increase in healing time for my acne/acne marks, but I honestly noticed zero difference in my skin. It did lay well with all of my other skincare products and it mixed well with other serums and oils. It was hydrating, but not any more so than any other serums/oils.

This product may be great for mature skin, but pass on it if you’re under 30.

  1. Nice review! I have a couple deluxe samples of this but I haven’t used them yet as I have a few serums I need to use up first. I’m shocked the full size comes in a plastic bottle. I would have though glass for sure from such a high end brand! Too bad it doesn’t do anything special for that price tag!

    1. I couldn’t believe it was in plastic when I opened the box! I don’t know if the largest size comes in glass, but that just seem like a BIG corner to cut.

      1. True, the bigger size could come in glass but it’s not like this size is a tiny deluxe sample. They shouldn’t cut corners like that for such a luxury brand!
