Even if you are not a huge follower of cult skincare, Estée Lauder's Advanced Night Repair is a product that you have most likely heard of or encountered in your lifetime. I know I've seen ads for it for years, but had never really taken much notice as it wasn't a serum that I felt was right for my age or skin type.
Last week saw EL re-launch the serum as Advanced Night Repair Synchronised Recovery Complex II* (whew!). My interest in the product has already gone up a few notches since Caroline Hirons gave it her seal of approval, but hearing details about the product from Estée Lauder at an event last week also made it a lot more intriguing. According to them, 10 bottles of ANR are sold every minute. They also say that Estée Lauder was the first to use hyaluronic acid, and the first to use dark, pharmacy-style packaging (pipette, etc) when it was first launched back in 1982.
The whole premise of the product hasn't really changed a whole lot since then; it's all about repairing skin from dehydration and pollution overnight (duh), and making it look more well-rested, even and taut. There are no specific claims about wrinkles from this, really, it's all about making skin look the best it can. I am all over anything that will make me look like I've had a good nights' sleep, so am giving this a very enthusiastic go. I've only just started using it, so can't review yet - I will do a full skincare post soon so will update then as to how I'm getting on with it!
