Such a long name for a serum…. uffff! No wonder they charge such big bucks for this product…..Naam hi kaafi hai!!!For review purpose, I think I will end up calling it ANR Recovery Complex II (yes, I know I am lazy!).
According to the information available on the official website of Estee Lauder, the product claims to:
Reveal a smoother, more radiant, younger look. Wake up to more beautiful skin every day.
Tested and proven: Advanced Night Repair dramatically reduces the look of all key signs of aging.
It maximizes the power of skin’s natural nighttime renewal with our exclusive ChronoluxCB™ Technology.
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.
Price: INR 7500 for 50 ml (Or was it INR 7000??? Ooops)
Also available in 30 ml and 75 ml sizes.
I have been using this serum now for around 7-8 months now (I am on my third bottle). And here I am telling you with a heavy heart that I find it to be a over hyped product. As much as I wanted to see extraordinary results, it failed on the promises that it made.
I have pigmentation on my face ( thanks to neglected skincare throughout my life) and my skin is dry and gets dull. Occasionally it starts to feel rough to touch as well. All this ANR did was hydrate my skin to some extent, made my skin a bit soft on application, but I see no change in the pigmentation on my face. And there is no major change in the health of the skin as well. In case I happen to skip it for even 2 days, my skin starts looking like it used to couple of months back.
From the very beginning, I could see that it was not doing anything for my skin. But I had heard so many good things about it, that I continued using it in the hope of miracle. And the miracle didn’t happen! I do not think I will give any more time to this serum and switch to some other serum. I still have some serum left and I am planning to go for Clinique or try Clarins after this one. This one really broke my heart!!!
Finally, if you are looking just for some hydration and don’t have any major issues like pigmentation and dullness, you can give it a try ( but for the price tag that it comes with, I will firmly suggest against it). I think some other brands have products that can be tried instead.
Will I repurchase it again???
I don’t think so!
