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 :(
ANR is resistant to tanning! i've been using this for a year now, and have yet to see it working its wonders. Two weeks ago, I went to a Water-Themed Park, whole day of exposure under the sun darkened me (of course!). I did slap on sun-screen,but somehow it just dissolved inside the waters. Later on,I was tanned all over, bodyskin was peeling, but I realised that my face was the least tanned and did not peel. So yes, ANR helped! :)
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.
I bought this because of the rave reviews here. sigh......it didn't work for me. It broke me out horribly(whiteheads all over my cheeks). I think this product would work for people over the age of 28. This serum is very light and the texture is quite liquidy. Overall, this is not a bad product but just not for me. I think my skin didn't like estee lauder products. I have tried the blue bottle serum and it broke me out as well. ;-(
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.
This is a great serum! I don't have tons of concerns with my skin but I was told everyone should use this, so I thought "why not?". It helped even out my skin tone and absorb moisture better. My complexion improved. Overall clarity. I'm impressed with the results and will continue to use.
Amazing serum that acctually sinks in to the skin. The skin feel incredibly smooth an nourished. I have combination skin and this is perfect for that extra pampering at night!! I wil definately buy this again.
Oh, how I wanted to love this product. Unfortunately I fall into the “this product massively breaks me out” category. (In fact, all EL products do – Time Zone is the absolute WORST of them). I broke out for a straight month, all over my face, and then basically severely on my chin (massive, under the skin, red pimples). I have used Differin for 10 years, and I will say that this stuff (layered underneath the Differin each night) was a huge help in preventing the typical Retin-A flaking, but unfortunately my skin just does not agree with it otherwise.
I can see how people love it for brightness and tone enhancement – but if you are a new user, and start breaking out shortly after using it, you might want to take a couple days off and see if the ANP is the culprit. Again, this is my experience with all EL products, so clearly there is something they use that I am just unable to tolerate.
I actually really like the eyedropper packaging - so 5 stars for that EL!
Love this product.
I've had a problem with acne due to PCOS for over 15 years (currently taking an Isotretinoin drug), so it's a daily battle against breakouts and blackheads etc. (they become inflamed if I don't clean out the pores...). At the moment, I don't get breakouts due to the drug, but it turns out my skin is very splotchy underneath (I was surprised to discover that). Right now, my skin is virtually clear but skin tone is very uneven...
The best thing about this serum is that it heals wounds and redness from picking at my skin. Especially in combination with the La Mer cream. Now I keep using the serum to fade the brown spots (acne marks). Unfortunately, with this drug, my skin renewal seems to have almost stopped, so the serum doesn't fade marks nearly as fast as before. Still, it's the best product I know of and can more or less afford, so I keep using it. Soon I won't be taking the drug anymore, so I hope that by then my skin tone will have become evened out. (I'm afraid that after that the acne will return, as it has in the past...)
I have discovered the serum less than a year ago and have repurchased it many times already.
