Its that my copper serum is too thin and runny, and i need a nice jelly serumy like base, I thought this wold be a perfect match. Just want to make sure the ingredients in this agrees with super peptide serum.\\thanks
I am on my 3rd bottle of this stuff. It all started when I had some moles removed from my face with liquid nitrogen. The removal left dark brown scars on my face and my dermatologist insisted that I would need to go on a skin-bleaching programme to sort out the scars. One of my friends who swears by EL made me cancel my appointment and buy this serum instead. At first, I didn't think it was anything special but after using it religiously for a year I can see a difference. My skin is smooth and even and those horrible scars have lightened so that they are barely noticable even in the worst light. I use this religiously and sparingly twice a day with my verite moisture relief cream. This combo does wonders for my skin. I love the packaging as it's very hygienic. My only gripe is the price. It's way too steep. Since the advanced night repair eye serum is so expensive, I have started using this serum under my eyes and over my lids with some really good results. My advice to all you ladies is that you should always be patient when using a treatment as these things don't work overnight. Give it 3 months and if your face still looks the same, chuck it in the bin.
I love this product! Definitely my HG.
Iím 33 years old and have combination skin. I am frequently mistaken for being younger and still carded for alcohol purchases because my skin is so great, and I credit this in large part to Advanced Night Repair. I do suffer from hormonal breakouts in the chin area, but those breakouts are significantly less frequent and disappear much faster since I began using ANR.
I use this religiously every night after cleansing with my Clarisonic, before applying my nighttime moisturizer. Iíve been using ANR for almost a year, and the difference in my skin now and my skin a year ago is very visible in photographs.
It's a great serum for the skin that just started showing signs of aging or for preventative care. I apply it every night on a clean skin and see results instantly my skin is glowing and feels great, all the mimic wrinkles that seems to start showing on my forehead are gone. I dont have any problems with it so far and will repurchase if it continues to deliver:)
A definite staple product!!
I have been using this at night for over a month and absolutely love how I look in the morning. Very refreshed and awake! Goes on very velvety and absorbs quickly into the skin. I know Paula Begoun suggest that the concentrate is even better, but I love this product and can't imagine what else the concentrate will provide. I may check it out, but I am committed to this one long term and invest in the 3.4 oz bottle @$125.00. Yeah EL!!
UPDATE 9/26/12: I repurchased my second 3.4 oz bottle in August, almost exactly 1 year after the first bottle....this is such a great product and I use it in rotation with the Concentrate. Using the concentrate as the seasons change for the 21 days and then going back to the this as a regular staple. My skin has really evened out and could not be smoother to the touch. Absolutely look forward to my night time routine with this product.
It shaves YEARS off of your face!! The key is to use it BEFORE You start to show signs of ageing. The best thing about this product is the Hyaluronic Acid. Best Ingredient Ever. People who can use heavier creams won't find this as impressive since it is a serum, but My skin feels soft and plumped up I'm assuming from the caffeine,which is good for the outside of your skin. helps plump up wrinkles,cellulite ect... It literally takes any moisture and traps it in your skin, leaving it soft and supple. The serum prevents 95% of future damage to your skin. I like that it has tons of antioxidants that are supposed to "neutralize" the toxins your skin is exposed to during the day, which should prevent aging It blocks free radicals from the sun, smoke, whatever else, from damaging your skin. This stuff is a miracle worker, but it DOESN'T WORK OVERNIGHT! A bit of an HG for me. It evens out your skin tone, plumps up fine lines and wrinkles When I first tried it, it kinda broke me out. I was told by everyone to keep using it, just stick with it. So I did and I have been using this for over a year and must say I will continue using it. It is expensive to me but worth it. My EL girls are so nice and give me samples. This and Double wear are my favs. Top of the line. It has a cinnamon medicine scent to me Also, Estee Lauder was one of the first big companies to stop animal testing which is great! for a person with oily and acne prone skin and a few minor wrinkles (who can't use heavy creams) this is an HG for sure! I had lots of super teeny tiny lines under my eyes and cheeks, most likely from over drying my skin with acne products, and when I used stuff my skin plummped up and my little lines were plumped out and no longer noticeable also. And I was concerned with these smile lines I was getting. They were like pre-wrinkle wrinkles and this made them fade significantly. I like to use this before I apply my makeup since I use my Differin at night. I know this is for night but it plumps my skin and makes it so supple and youthful and I just look better over all and ready for my day!!
I'm now in my mid-thirties. I used to smoke. It started to show about age 31, when I couldn't help but notice I always looked tired in the morning, no matter how much sleep I'd gotten. "You're not tired. You're old," my older sister explained. I bought a bottle of this brown stuff, then, because it was expensive, which felt important in a magical thinking way, and because it was much recommended by magazines and it didn't seem like a trendy thing but very dowdy and I figured if it was dowdy it had to be doing something not to be discontinued after all this time. I had no idea if it was doing anything, actually. I just kept using it before bed, like I just kept brushing my teeth. Then I went away on a trip for a week and I forgot to take it. Two days into my trip, when I looked in the mirror one morning, I stopped breathing briefly. My face looked like unfolded origami. I cursed every delicious cigarette and every warm bask in the sun. When I got home, in what I felt was an advanced state of decomposition, I carefully washed and exfoliated and aspirin-masked and then slapped the brown stuff on followed by my usual basic moisturizer. A few days on, I looked plausibly like a woman who could still bear children. After a week, I got catcalled by one of those unemployed guys who hangs out next to the bakery. I glared at him, yet I confess I felt relief. I think this stuff does something. What or how, I cannot tell you, but I am not leaving it behind again.
I couldn't tell if my skin was any better (or worse) after abt 2 weeks of use, so yeah, meh.
did not realize how good this product was until lately. my skin has been doing weird things for months and will not tolerate anything. thought i was going to be good with vaseline as a simple cure but that lasted 2 days. went back to this and weird red bumps started clearing up. still get little strange things but this has been keeping them from lasting 3 weeks and irritating skin around them. this seems to work great and even though not as moisturizing on its own some days have to make do. always knew this was good but now more impressed. edit- using Avene Cicalfate along with ANR just once a day now. the Cicalfate works wonders fast and gives me more moisture.
