Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair | Week 1: Why I'm Using it Now

When I was introduced to Advanced Night Repair serum by Estee Lauder Philippines, I didn't realize the extent of its popularity. I just knew that it was a great product and many raves about it. I didn't even know that it's been a ground-breaking product for over 30 years!

The "little brown bottle" looked familiar though. If I'm not mistaken, I've been seeing this on the night stand of my grandmother while growing up, probably just a different form.

Estee Lauder was one of the first in the beauty industry to link skin-aging to DNA damage. As we all know, we are all made up of cells and our cells houses our DNA. Ever since the discovery of DNA and how important it is in molding our body and personality, beauty brands have been knee-deep in finding ways on how to utilize this discovery in preventing skin-aging.

Estee Lauder, an innovator and pioneer for a lot of skin creams in the market, discovered that DNA cannot withstand outside factors like populations, sun damage and other stressors. Our skin, despite it being the largest part of our body is the most vulnerable. They discovered that our DNA breaks down continuously because of these stressors and causes irreperable damage.

Estee Lauder's very first Night Cream was one of the first of their line to address visible DNA Damage. Two decades later, they have continuously improved in giving women a fighting chance to renew their skin and for some, even turn back time.

I finally succumbed to the hype when Estee Lauder PH included yours truly in their ANR challenge to finally try out this famous "little brown bottle". After reading reviews all over the internet and seeing how it earned 4 out 5 at MakeupAlley, I see no reason why I should still hesitate further.

How I use this:
  1. After cleansing and toning, I apply 2 drops of the Advanced Night Repair Serum all over my face. A drop or two on my neck and the same for the back of my hands.
  2. I avoid applying on any cystic acne that I may have. I apply spot-medication for that.
  3. Then, I apply a moisturizer that is fit for my oily skin.

Why do we still need to apply a separate moisturizer? Doesn't the Advanced Night Repair moisturizing already?

Advanced Night Repair activates our skin that it absorbs more moisture. Our skin may tend to be resilient to skin care that is why it takes a awhile for products to work on us.What ANR does it that it plays a supporting role in repairing and protecting the skin as it heals. This is best use at night time as it's when our body is regaining its strength.

During the morning, however, I still still use this but skip the moisturizer and go straight to applying my sunblock.

I know its premature but I feel that I'm already feeling and seeing visible results. My skin feels smoother, softer and silkier. I still get a few bumps of pimples but nothing too alarming and shocking since I get them anyway irregardless of what products I use. I just avoid applying the ANR on those spots if I could.

My face is still oily, but I don't think this serum or the moisturizer I apply aggravates it.

My birthday is in less than 9 months, I read that people who used the Advanced Night Repair from Estee Lauder had dramatic results that they could barely notice their old skin from when they started this skin care. I wish to have the same result!
