There is a reason that this has been around for thirty years and won numerous awards. I am 24 and have sensitive blemish prone dry skin. I use this under my moisturizer every night and it does wonders for my skin. It help it heal, heals blemishes and it keeps my skin plump and not flaky and dry. I love it!
Great product for moisturizing skin, especially if you're acne prone. I started out with 5 visible lines on my forehead, and by the end of the first bottle was down to 3. I use it morning and night. Won't cause breakouts like some other anti-aging products do.
This is a serum meant to be used under moisturizer. You do have to use a moisturizer over this... on its own, probably won't do much for you.
Bought this on a whim at Duty Free leaving Tokyo.
Skin was angry in strange places from travel, lack of sleep, so much awesome food,
and very few, ahem, bowel movements as a result. Yep, that'll kill pretty much any pretty complexion!
SO embarked on massive diet clean up, more sleep obviously, and a little more aggressive with my BP 2.5% gel I use as usual.
ADDED this serum at night (not with the BP as that turned my face orange somehow)
and during the day, too.
It's not brutally sunny here in southern west BC so sun is not an issue at present.
I have noticed a HUGE improvement in my skin tone, clarity, resilience, vitality and glow, and over-all clear-zit-free-ness.
my forehead is slowly clearing (the acne was non-productive, just tons of bumps)
my usual trouble spots and scarred spots around mouth and right cheek look way better and I find I am using VERY LITTLE of my MAC concealer and very minimal anything else. Just a bit of powder on my nose and maybe t-zone mid-day.
I think I love this serum. It is pretty nice entirely on its own.
I found I like it BETTER with no other moisturizer over it, maybe a dab on my dehydrated spots and that's it. I am thinking a super light spf over this is going to be my only regimen as we cruise into summer.
Sure it cost a god damn fortune. But I kept track of every penny I spent on skincare last year when I was having a really tough time with my finicky, hormonal, and sad skin, plus trying to find an spf I could tolerate, and well, what a huge waste.
I will buy this liquid gold any day.
And final note re ingredients: these are not half bad and some of them make perfect sense, no retarded, science-spoof 'stem cell' BS or other such nonsense.
To those who abhor the ingredients as being useless, I must say there has been an intervention by God then, because this has made a major positive impact on my skin in three weeks. Will definitely watch and see now, because it may change, but i doubt it. I have had absolutely NO breakout from this serum anywhere. As I said above, skin is actually clearer, less congested, and best of all, this did not irritate, like many healing serums and vitamin treatments do, have, and scare me.
I cannot recommend this product enough! I've been through several bottles of this over the years and have recently purchased another bottle after a hiatus of different products - because I never found anything better. My skin is combination and prone to break out depending on what products I use. ANR has never broken me out, in fact it seems to clear up my skin even helping pigmentation scars disappear! It's also quite hydrating, without that sticky or oily feeling and I wake up with fresh and nourished skin every morning. Have to admit, the serum is quite pricey, but personally, I think it's worth every cent.
Love this product, it keeps my face feeling hydrated. i put it on every night. ive been using this for about a year now. im only 20 , and i want to make sure i stay looking like this until im atleast 40 :) lol
I'm turning 30 years old this year and have been using anti-aging products religiously for the past 2 years. After having a baby, my skin has changed significantly (dark spots started appearing, fine lines forming around my eyes and forehead, pores getting larger, etc). My natural beauty days are gone!! Anyways, after trying out several different anti-aging serums and creams (both US and Asian brands), I've found that the Estee Lauder ANR serum has helped improve my skin the most. It seems to help fade any old scars that I have and heals any new ones that I get from breaking out. It's also very hydrating and my skin just looks better after using this product. This will be my go-to serum for anti-aging from now on!! I like it soooooo much better than the Kiehls Midnight Recover Concentrate (which seems to just sit on top of my skin).
I started using Estee Lauder Night Repair 25 years ago. What it does is more than just something over a couple weeks. It has a long range effect. People think I'm 20 years younger than I am and I believe using night repair has kept my skin in good condition through the years. I really would recommend it to younger women to use each night and it will pay off in the long run. It repairs damage from everyday toxins and free radicals our skin comes in contact with. It is expensive, however, it does last for quite some time. It is one of the best investments I've made for my skin.
I have a sample of this that I've been using for 2 weeks and I'm considering buying the full size. So far it hasn't done much to repair my under eyes from another serum I was using, but in the morning my skin looks so smooth and bright. I read somewhere that "consumers could be mistaking the waxy feel of it for nutrition", but I like how my skin looks and feels after use. I'm hoping that this is a keeper in my anti-aging arsenal.
What a waste of money!
This product does nothing and I mean nothing at all.
I bought the 50ml bottle so it would last me a long time and I would hopefully see a real benefit.
It does nothing at all and my skin is pretty normal and I don't have wrinkles only fine lines...and this product does even nothing for my fine lines.
If somebody buys this product thinking it will reduce their wrinkles they will be very disappointed.
A hefty price tag does not warrant a good quality product ;-)
I stopped by the Elizabeth Arden counter last week and the sales associate - noticing my cystic acne- said that Estee Lauder had serums that could help me. The Estee Lauder rep gave me samples of ANR. Initially, I thought it was just another sample that I would toss in my bag of extras. Thankfully, I decided to try it. WOW! It has only been one week, but my acne scars have started to fade and my skin texture has greatly improved. Usually, serums and creams make my acne worse, so I am thrilled that this seems to calm my Retin-A infused skin down a bit!
