Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

20 March 2015
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II is a night serum that claims to 'significantly reduce major signs of visible aging'.

The bottle is plastic which surprises me, I would have expected glass from a brand like this but considering how many times I've dropped this I guess I should be thankful that it's plastic and durable.

The dropper applicator makes accessing the product very easy and mess free, not to mention that you can really control the amount that you use, I find 2-3 drops is perfect for my face and nek.

The consistency is quite thick, it's a bit like a fluid gel and it has a light herbal scent which I'm not crazy about. When this goes on the skin it sets to a slightly sticky finish and I can definitely feel it on my skin, it's not the lightest serum I've used by far.

My problem with this product is that I just don't see any results with it, I've used it consistently for months, moved on to better things and then gone back to it to try to finish it and not once have I seen any actual difference in my skin when this product was used.

I think the best thing about this product is the fact that it lasts forEVER, you only need 2-3 drops per application so a 50ml bottle will last you a hell of a long time but with a price tag of $140AUD you would bloody well hope it lasted longer than just a couple of months.

Overall I'm not impressed, it's an expensive nothing of a product, the top 5 ingredients are water, a good bacteria found in the digestive system that hasn't been proven to actually do anything to the skin, a water binding agent that helps condition the skin, lanolin and a silicone.

  1. I have always loved your honest reviews :) I believe good skincare products that work don't need to be expensive, and just because a product is expensive doesn't mean it's effective. EL as a brand is a bit overrated in my books
