After having tried this I believe in miracles! This has got to be the single best cosmetic product I've even used in my life. How did I ever live without it? I credit this for having completely cleared up and healed my skin after the damage Guerlain's Abeille Royal Youth serum had caused me. My skin looks phenomenal, I get compliments on my skin daily and I credit this product 100%. My moisturizers work so much better because of this serum and my make-up looks flawless because this product has made my skin so healthy and luminous! I've never loved my skin so much!
I have to say, this is probably the only skin care item that I actually believe lives up to the hype. I'm in my mid 20's and I don't suffer from acne, nor have major skin issues but I have still noticed a MAJOR difference in my skin after using this. I only use this at night before I go to bed because a) it's bloody expensive and b) I don't want to over pamper my skin. I use about 3 teeny weeny drops of this and gently pat, rather than swipe, onto my skin. It feels heavenly once applied, and my skin is still able to breathe through this serum, rather than feel suffocated, which is great as I have quite combo/oily skin.
After a week of continuously using this, I already began to see the results in my skintone. The redness in my skin had toned down and I had a sort of glow to my face, rather than it look like a pile of slick. It's been about 2 months now, and in combination with my healthier new diet that includes loads of veggies and fruits, I can honestly say my skin has never looked better. I've stopped using foundation on my skin too and just couldn't be happier.
I use this in conjunction with the Estee Lauder Verite line for senstivie skin and my skin hasn't looked this good in years. However, it is expensive so I buy samples on ebay and have made out quite well so far.
Overall, amazing stuff!
This product has helped my skin improve so much. My skin looks so much better now, and all my friends say that my skin looks different than before. I used to get milia all the time, and i tried everything without anything working for me. Now i don't have a single one. Its really worth every $ spent, it is expensive, but it lasts a long time. This is one product i can't live without...absolutely love it
An Estee Lauder SA told me I could benefit this since I've acne all the time, and this damage could be repaired by this ANR serum. As for that, I don't know what damage was repaired since my skin looks the same as before I used the serum. The effect this serum has on me seems temporary. My skin is moistened and relaxed right after using this.
The smell is a bit odd and nothing I'd like to smell on my face while I fall asleep, but it does go away after a while. I think this can sting my face when I'd use this after using a strong exfoliator or peel (for acne and discolorations). Those with superb sensitive skin may not like this. The ANR serum is superb similar to Lancome's Genifique, but the latter is more soothing and smells less.
I wished this worked for me the way it has for others but it really hasn't. I broke out in little pimples all over my forehead, cheeks and chin. It didn't happen overnight but it was definitely this that caused it. Since I stopped using it my skin has cleared up. While I used it (for roughly a month or so) I didn't see any improvement on the texture, feel or look of my skin. I was so disappointed and won't repurchase.
well,,, dont really know how to describe this product,,,
- if i didnt have any sleep the night before and i wear this before my makeup, my skin looks better compare to if i dont wear this
- its good for winter
- i dont really know what kind of improvements it has made
- can only wear it during winter, if i wear this during summer, my foundation melt before i left home
But i would definitely have one bottle of this at my place all time, cos it does make my skin look better after a late night out,,, apart from that ,,, i dont see any improvement in me :(
Amazing product! Although, as we can see by some rewievs, it does not work for everyone. I've noticed significant difference just after one use. My skin looked smoother, pores less visible and the skin was well hydrated. More you use it, the better effect you'r gonna get. Obviously, providing you look after yourself in other ways at the same time. If you smoke like mad, have bad diet or do not drink enough of water, then do not expect any skin product to make a difference to your skin. Also, some people forget, that serum must be followed by a moisturizer. If you will not do this, the result will be just opposite. And it's best to be followed by the same company product, like Time Zone, otherwise, do not be suprised and do not complain about breakouts. All in all, it is great product that really works miracles.
Really, I do not understand the hype for this product. First I used a whole bottle of the concentrate, with no results. Afterwards, because of all the HG messages, I decided to give the 50ml bottle of the original serum a try. I did not see any improvement whatsoever. Waste of money.
The reason why people have been finding the product effective for only a couple of weeks is because of the packaging.
The serum is housed in a weighty and substantial, but translucent glass bottle. This is where Estee Lauder goes wrong. When light interacts with many of the active ingredients, they soon become null and useless. To counteract this, I keep my bottle in the box and try to apply it in the dark as much as I can. The concentrated version of this serum has an opaque packaging, which i think is much better for storage.
The serum itself is very hydrating. It didn't break me out, although I've heard reports of it doing that. It's not worked any miracles yet, but my skin feels so much better when I use it, and it appears to be a little bit brighter. A bit expensive, but by no means the most expensive skincare out there.
