I have been wanting to try Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex for ages. It is considered to be one of the best serums in the market, and the bloghosphere is full of raves for this product. I finally caved in and got one three weeks ago after I ran out of my MAC Prep+Prime Brightening Serum.
Estée Lauder claims that the serum is:
uniquely formulated to work in a way no other treatment can, this patented complex is advanced with our exclusive Chronolux Technology. So innovative, so effective, this remarkable recovery complex actually supports the natural synchronization of skin's repair and protection processes. It's mission? Repair the appearance of past damage and address the damaging effects of environmental assaults before they become permanent. Use it everyday to help continuously repair the appearance of past damage, help prevent future damage and deliver high levels of hydration.The serum comes in an opaque brown bottle with a dropper. The fluid has a slippery yet light consistency. I take 3-4 drops, and use my fingertips to massage the serum into my face and neck. The product is easily absorbed and does not leave any oily residue. For my nighttime regimen, I follow the serum with my Dermalogica moisturizer (reviewed here).
Purchasing this serum is an expensive way to satisfy a curiosity, but I'm glad that I tried it anyway because the product contains antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients that are good for the skin. I will continue to use this as a part of my nighttime regimen, but I will probably go back to using Prep+Prime Brightening Serum for daytime. Advanced Night Repair also has an eye cream to go with the serum.
