This is my first ever review on mua - just to say that this really has made a difference in my skin :-O I'm not the type to write reviews but gonna start for the few that have made a difference for me - this, Clarisonic and YSL Matte Touch Radiant Base (blue tube). Been using this one for a month now - I always get pretty bad acne during that time of the month and this has really controlled it - as well as brighten my face and soften the tiny eye lines I began seeing ;( Definitely always buying again :D
This is a very good serum. It makes my skin look more dewy/fresh in the morning. It's not supposed to be used alone, must follow with a moisturizer. Sometimes I squeeze my pores too much when i'm stressed out and my face becomes an irritated mess with red spots. When I put this on at night, in the morning it's like a reset button and the spots and irritation are gone. as for price, I just wait for the free gift w/ purchase which always has a good sized sample of ANR; usually 35$ purchase and free 5 piece gift.
I had very very high hopes for this product as it is really famous and known to lots of people in the world. I was so very disappointed in this product because it had no affect on my face, whatsoever. just nothing. I was expecting a dramatic change on my face, but none. I've been trying for about 3months now, and i just think i have wasted my money... :( urgh. will never buy again...!
I got a tiny sample bottle of this as a gift with purchase. I decided to apply a tiny amount under my eyes and after just a couple of days I thought I noticed a difference. I was extremely hesitant to try t on my face because I have very acne prone skin. But for the first time I thought, what the heck, I'm going to apply it to my face and just deal with the consequences. Well, the next morning I saw an improvement in my skin! I am keenly aware of every pore, discoloration, pimple, and textural imperfection in my skin...after 3 days there was a noticeable difference in texture and I swear my face was more even toned. And holy cow I even saw a reduction in my acne. So after almost two weeks here is what I can say...my skin texture and tone are both improved, skin around eyes is hydrated and a tad plumper. And my acne may be positively affected (hard to tell for sure). One thing that did experience is an acne cyst on my chin. I didn't panic because this is not completely unusual for me. So I kept applying the serum and the topped it with a big glob my much beloved Acnee Free sulfur clay mask over night as I do will all pimples and that took care of it in 2 or 3 days. I am going to have to bite the bullet and purchase a bottle of this. It is not within my usually budget to purchase something like this. But this is the ONLY anti-aging product I have ever tried that produced noticeable and real results in mere days. I LOVE it. Give it a try.
I am a makeup artist,I have to buy more products in market because of my job.This product is amazing.It makes your skin younger and less plumping.You can see results immediately after use.I usualy use it at night and in the morning and I have a glowing skin.This is the one of the best products.
I've always used this product. I've used this religiously since I was a teenager, literally, because my mother would give bottles of this to me as presents and I'd use it because, well, it was there. I don't know if habit factors into this at all, but I do notice a difference when I switch to other night creams, namely that they aren't as good as this one at moisturizing and rejuvenating my skin, and I always switch back. For someone who 9 times out of 10 prefers to switch products out of sheer boredom and thirst for novelty, my decade-long loyalty to this night cream says a lot.
first try, first impression :)
i really like the texture. at first i thought WOAH so oily, but it actually seeps in and it doesnt feel as oily as i though it would be
and i also love how you only need so little to spread it on each side of your face, forehead and chin/nose :)
shall update in a week or two :)
2ND OF SEPT 2012 UPDATE
as u can see its only been a few days and i am very happ to keep the rating :) my skin looks glowing and what was used to be dull i can see my skin getting brighter :D
whats better is that sonething that feels so oily does not make my face oily in the morning at all :D
This has to be the number one rating of all products I have ever used!
My mum used to wear this since I can remember her (btw, I do not remember a single wrinkle on my mums face, she had fantastic skin!!!!), but I never thought about trying it cause she was an all Estee Lauder girl and I thought that this must be a "hype" product like most...
Oh my, was I wrong...This year , way past the 35 years of age, I thought I'd give it a try....and now I am banging my head on the wall...why oh why didn't I do this earlier????
Each time I use it, my face looks fresh and younger in the morning NO KIDDING.
I came back from a beach vacation (I left ANR at home cause I was afraid it would break or degrade from heat or sth), and even though I took care of my skin with excellent sunscreen and moisturiser, it became parched. Afterwards, it took just 3 days of using ANR at night with a relaxing massage and my skin recovered!!!!!!!
My mum knew this secret and she didn't have the time to pass it on... Now I consider to sometines using it at night and slathering on top some Nivea creme....She used to do that now and then I remember....
I did this 3 times already and , I am SHOCKED with the result....Beautiful glowing thankful skin!!!!!!
Mind you I have combination to oily skin, easily dehydrated and with some faded melasma spots.... My skin is finally behaving and thanking me.
The combination of ANR with Nivea Creme, beats any beauty treatment mask out there. It is just not for every night and I think it is a little early to give a final verdict on this combination.
ANR alone, is a big miracle in a small bottle. I will never be without it anymore. Believe all that it is said about it. It just works!!!!!!
Words cannot describe how thankful I am for this serum. Seriously, you think I'm exaggerating but I'm not. Until I started using this, I had suffered from hundreds of super stubborn, tiny flesh-colored bumps on my forehead, cheeks, chin for over 10 years. My face was so oily I was blotting at least 4 times a day. I tried tons of products but nothing helped. Then I started using Advanced Night Repair. In less than a week, every bump I fought for years vanished. Within 2-3 weeks, my skin no longer needed blotting. I couldn't believe it. I stopped using it for a few days and the bumps started to reappear so I quickly went back to reapplying nightly. After 6-7 months, however, I found that I could go longer periods of time without using it. I am down to once a week now and my skin still stays radiant, smooth, and even. This product has been nothing short of a miracle for me.
This product is a god send.
My mum (who has unbelievably beautiful skin for someone who's 60) advised me to try her Advanced Night Repair serum just to see if it works.
I couldn't believe my eyes the next morning. The redness on my skin was gone, there was this amazing sheen/glow on my face that i have never seen. My skin felt powdery/silky smooth... and... as a bonus, the small pimple that has been on my cheek for around a week, HEALED overnight...
I feel like i should tone down what i just said in case people who are reading it feel that i'm just overexcited/gushing/exaggerating... but no i'm not.
This is absolute HG for me. I have been using it for 1-2 months now... and with everything else constant in my skincare routine, my colleagues have come up to me and told me that i look fresher, prettier, more radiant, etc. They're asking me why i have been putting on more makeup recently....
... but... the truth is i have been putting on LESS makeup... IT'S JUST MY SKIN... *tears of gratitude to the good people who invented this serum*
