I’ve been a HUGE fan of Estee Lauder from the very first day I became interrested in skincare. This was about 2 centuries ago and I had a very bad acne in those days. Dermatologists’ treatments didn’t really make things all that better and I finally decided to give high-end skincare a try.

Estee Lauder it became and it’s nowadays still one of my loves….

Nightwear Plus is a lovely allrounder.Every skintype will benefit from its (multiple) skin-improving ingredients. I’m not sure if you’ll see the “pore reducing” effect all that quickly, but what you WILL see is a healthier, more glowing skin.

When will you start seeing the first results? Without becoming too technical now ; skins’ epidermis renews itself every 28 days, in average. That is the “ideal” cell turnover, anyway. When we get older, it takes a bit longer. So logically, you will start seeing the BENEFITS of a product after about one full cell-cycle, being 28 days.

The many anti-oxidants in this product work by keeping away harmfull elements away from your skin cells. In this way, your skin can REGENERATE itself better and produce more SKIN-FIRMING collagen and elastin. So this product is helping your skin to perform better. Isn’t that nice?

Texture :lovely (I know that’s not a type of texture, but it simply is…..) J

Skintypes :like Lauder says on the packaging : all, and I agree.

Use :at night, over a serum, if you’re using one. Lauder advises their Night Repair serum (see review in a previous post), but you can use any serum you want.

Note: this product comes with a “day” and “day eye” version too. I will review them both for you soon.

ESTEE LAUDER ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR SYNCHRONISED RECOVERY COMPLEX II

Estée Lauder’s legendary Night Repair serum was introduced into the cosmetic market in 1982.

It was the first skin treating complex that promised to FIGHT against environmental DAMAGE, REPAIR it partially and PREVENT new damage.The product proved  to be an enormous succes and has, since then, been “facelifted” two times. Starting as a “cellular recovery complex”, it became “protective recovery complex” and now has become a “synchronised recovery complex II”, working with the “carcadian rythms” of our skin, meaning it follows skin’s own natural rythm of protection and repair.

Ingredients:Water/Aqua, Bifida Ferment Lysate, Methyl Gluceth-20, PEG-75, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Butylene Glycol, Propanediol, Kola Acuminata (Cola) Seed Extract, Hydrolised Algin, Panthetine, Caffeine, Lecithin, Tripeptide-32, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium RNA, Bisabolol, Glycereth-26, Squalane, Sodium Hyaluronate, Oleth-3 Phosphate, Caprylyl Glycol, Lactobacillus Ferment, Oleth-3, Oleth-5, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile), Yeast Extract, Choleth-24, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Ceteth-24, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Hexylene Glycol, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Trisodium EDTA, BHT, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Red 4, Yellow 5.

Whatever the theory that comes with this product, every time I open a new bottle, just the smell gives me an immediate wooooooooooooooow effect. I don’t know why, but there’s something magical about it.

Ok, enough of that, back to scientific skincare analysis. The product is loaded with PROTECTIVE– cell protective – and skin REPAIRING, ANTI-AGEING ingredients. It will, as the Lauder Company claims, help our skin DEFEND itself against environmental stress-factors, such as environmental pollution.

The bifida ferment lysate is an interresting active ingredient, that more and more cosmetic companies tend to use these days. Let one thing be clear: Estée Lauder has been using this ingredient for years and has been a real trend-setter in that respect. (Like they have been more than once in the history of cosmetics). It is supposed to help our skin cells REGENERATE themselves and is a COLLAGEN-promotor in this sense.

The texture of this serum is in between a moisurizing and a silicone-type product. Those of you who are real serum junkies will know what I mean. It’s slightly moisturizing (Hyaluronic Acid) and glides over the skin at the same time. You’ll just need a few drops for your entire face and neck.

This just is a WONDERFUL, ACTIVE serum for those who are looking for an “allrounder”.

Skin types:all

Age group:all, as it helps prevent (futher) damage.

Texture:light, smooths over skin.

Strong points:everything I mentionned above.

Weak points:will not give you the same “wet”/ moisturizing feeling as a (pure) hyaluronic serum, so if you have a (very) dehydtrated skin,  you will either have to combine it with a really moisturizing toner (before), or even  another serum. Of course, a good hydrating cream on top could also do the job.

Estee Lauder products can be obtained through perfumeries and department stores.
