Estée Lauder's Advance Night Repair - Review

Hi ladies, hope you are all having a fantastic weekend and enjoying the snow or if your like me and like the comforts of your own home and are enjoying being cosy in the warmth while watching the snow though the window. I have been wanting to get a review up of Estée Lauder's Advance Night Repair since receiving this little sample bottle at a House of Fraser beauty event I attended way back in the Summer, but seeing as its such a pricey beauty product I really wanted to give it a thorough testing before sharing it here on my blog. Well it's been well over 5 months since having the ANR as a part of my evening skincare routine and I can honestly say that it really amazing and worth all the hype that it gets. 

ANR I would say is mostly seen as an anti-ageing serum, but from research it seams to be one of the best all rounder serums on the market - helping to hydrate the skin, reduce the appearance of acne scaring, redness and uneven skin tone. Its ever so easy to incorporate into your night time routine, as you just massage a few drops of this onto your skin before applying your evening moisturiser. I've never tried any other beauty serums before, so I don't have anything to compare the ANR too, but I always stayed away from them as due to the fact that I have oily to combination skin and thought that any serum would just add more oil to my skin and bring out spots - oh how wrong I was. The ANR serum's formula sinks right into the skin once applied, leaving your skin feel lovely and hydrated and it's left on all night to work its magic. 

After using this daily for the last 5 months, I've seen that my skin looks a lot more even - which is fantastic for making your makeup look flawless. I have also noticed that areas that were always a bit red and blotchy on my skin are now a thing of the past. My skin is not prone to major breakouts, but when I do get the odd spot, I'll pop ANR onto my skin and in the morning any breakouts are dramatically reduced - it seams that the serum is tackles every skin woe and the only result you get in the end is waking up with your skin looking radiant. As for tackling anti-ageing, I'm not so sure on how well it works - I can't really say my skin is at an age where I look at myself in the mirror and think 'gosh, it's starting to loose its youth' but I like to think that the ANR is a good defence for the skin and as with a lot of things prevention is always key - why start using anti-ageing products when its too late? 

Right now I am loving how healthy my skin looks and I honestly believe that I have the ANR to thank for it. Like I said at the beginning of this post, this is a pricey product with a 50ml bottle selling for £58.00 which you can find here, but a little really goes a long way - You only need the tiniest amount of product each time when using it. The little bottle shown in the pictures is only 15ml, I've been using it religiously and still have just under half a bottle left - So if your not put off by the price then the ANR is definitely a good investment. I will be honest and say I am not looking forward to my little bottle running out as forking out a lot of money for one product is a bit of a biggie, but after using this so frequently, I really can't see myself without this product, it's become a bit of a holy grail item for me. I've spoken to a lot of women since using this product - young and old and from what I've been told it is the key and secret to ageing gracefully! I have no idea how true this is, I suppose only time will tell. But for now I love how this is making my skin look and I love how hydrated my skin feels, no makeup days are not such a big deal anymore. I would definitely take the plunge and give this ago, especially if you have been thinking about getting it for a long time. The actual serum is not sticky, nor too thick, but has a water like consistency and leaves no greasy feeling on your skin afterwards. In my opinion a fantastic all rounder serum. Have you tried ANR yet? I would love to know your thoughts ladies.

Lot's of Love

PS Sorry about the writing rubbing off the bottle in the pictures, as you can see this little bottle has had a lot of love :)
