Estée Lauder - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II
- Overall rating:
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II is a facial serum that supports the natural nighttime anti-ageing purification process. The formula features a complex of active ingredients that includes an algae extract and a yeast extract, which is proven to help skin cells increase their own natural Catabolysis™ activity. Catabolysis™ activity helps skin cells to eliminate internal debris that cause cellular damage, which in turn optimises cellular performance and helps increase skin’s overall repair. The serum also features Chronolux™ Technology, which is a patented clock gene technology that helps support the natural synchronization of the skin’s nighttime repair process. Anti-Pollution technology helps to reduce the appearance of visible damage caused by environmental assault, while a blend of powerful antioxidants help neutralise environmentally generated free radicals before they can damage the skin’s appearance. The formula also delivers vital levels of hyaluronic acid to create the optimal conditions that the skin needs to maximise its natural repair process while also deeply hydrating and comforting the skin.
The silky serum slows down the look of premature ageing, dramatically reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and significantly improves the appearance of skin radiance and evenness of skin tone. It is ideal for all skin types and proven for all ethnicities. Oil- and fragrance-free, non-acnegenic, dermatologically and opthalmologically tested.

I received this Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex as part of the Best in Beauty 2012 competion
Thankyou Estee Lauder and BH for such an amazing prize.
I have always been aware of the Estee Lauder brand but have not purchased for several reasons.
I purchased my first Estee Lauder product Idealist after reading many many wonderful reviews on BH
I have some pigmentation on my fave and have been trying to remove it various way including microdermabrasion and IPL
I have not had any success although the pigmentation has reduced.
I was using my Idealist when I found out that I had won a Best in Beauty pack.
I was most excited to try the Estee Lauder products as I loved the way my skin felt after using Idealist for a month.
I purchased Estee Lauder Day wear for combination skin to add to my regime.
I have used Idealist and Day Wear in the morning and Advanced Night Repair, Day Wear and Advanced Night repair Eye cream at night.
After approximately 7 weeks of using this combination of Estee Lauder products my skin is radiant.
I am 51 years old and my skin feels like it is glowing from within.
My husband has commented several times that my skin looks amazing and over dinner a couple of nights ago he told me almost wistfully that I did not have a wrinkle on my face. ( we are the same age)
This combination of Estee Lauder works perfectly for me.
A Estee Lauder consultant told me I did not need to add a night cream to this regime which was a refreshing change.
I happily use the Day cream as a night cream.
I am delighted with my Estee Lauder products and will recommend this brand to everyone I know.

Glowing radiant skin
This is one AMAZING product! The packaging doesnt seem that great, the brown squareness of the bottle and the dropper lid. I guess it is what's inside that counts!
I apply this after I have cleansed and toned my face. I pump the dropper once and alot of serum goes up the tube.
One drop goes a far away on my face, I even have enough to apply on my neck. The absorption into my skin is almost instant! I only need to wait a few seconds for my skin to "drink" it up.
I've noticed how glowing my skin is in the morning! Even when I havent had enough sleep. My pigmentation has even reduced! I love my skin that I have even stopped wearing makeup on some days. I'm happy to be bearing my skin to the world!

I had a teeny 7ml sample of this and it lasted me 2 months with nightly use so I think the full-sized products of 30ml and 50ml are well worth the price! This serum is 'goopier' in texture and much more concentrated than many other serums I've tried so you only need a little bit for it to work its magic! I'm only in my early 20s but I have a few obvious lines and crows feet that make me appear older than my age. This serum glides on so smoothly onto the skin and my combination skin loves it; it is absorbed into the skin within 2-3 minutes and leaves my under-eye area and forehead feeling hydrated without any oiliness. It also has a very faint pleasant smell (that does not linger) that reminds me of dissolvable vitamin C tablets and makes me feel like my skin is really soaking up all those antioxidants. After about a month of use, I've noticed that my dark circles have almost disappeared (although I never did have prominent dark circles in the first place) and my wrinkles are not as apparent; the lines are still there but they're no longer super obvious and they don't show up in photos anymore when I'm smiling :D I think this may be the secret to my mom's youthfulness too because she uses this and she looks 10 years younger than her actual age!

Jill of all trades!
This improved Advanced Night repair is truly an all rounder, Jill of all trades product. A lightweight serum that melts into the skin and goes about rejuvenating, hydrating, evening out, smoothing and just doing a good job of making your skin in general feel good.
The packaging of the product is hygienic and easy to dispense. There really is nothing to fault.
Well done Estee Lauder this really is a winner!

I don't think you can go wrong with Estée Lauder. I recently purchased this product and I feel like I am treating my skin every time. It makes my skin feel and look incredible .

My serum of choice
What can I say? Estée Lauder creates the best serums in this market.
I'm not sure what the difference is between the original serum and this one but I do like how serum 2 is cheaper in price!
I love the texture of this serum and I feel like my skin has all the hydration and moisture to keep it happy for the rest of day.
I love how I was shown by the sales person I can mix it with my foundation for a quick pick me up at 5'o clock.

What can I say... I am a total convert to serums after trying out Estee Lauder's ANR Complex II.
The packaging is ultra-luxe - nothing short of what I expect from a premium brand. I loved the gold accents on the bottle, precision dropper tip and chocolate tinted bottle that I presume would protect the contents from UV degradation.
Now that I am 26 years old, however I already have a hoard of skin problems on board - including pigmentation, sunspots, freckles, uneven skintone and texture. I don't have a wrinkle problem just yet, so I was mainly anticipating an improvement in hydration and surface blemishes.
I used 2-3 drops every evening and the milky serum was light and non-greasy on my skin. I have dry-combination skin and the serum absorbed quickly and my skin immediately felt more hydrated and smoother. There was no pungent fragrance to the product. I then followed with my usual Clinique moisturiser.
After using this for 2 months, I noted a significant improvement in my skin texture. Instead of my dry, flaky skin - my skin feels plump, hydrated and looks more radiant. I also noticed some lightening of my freckles and pigmentation. I am super happy to see that this serum has helped to diminish the visibility of my biggest skin concern.
The 30ml bottle is generously sized as you only need a few drops per application, meaning that the overall daily cost is quite affordable. I would expect that the 30ml bottle would last a minimum of 4-5 months.
I recommend this product to anyone who has concerns about premature ageing of their skin. I am a firm believer that it's never too early to jump on the anti-ageing bandwagon and Estee Lauder's cult serum is an excellent place to start. This is an innovative, high-tech product from Estee Lauder and I'm certain that this product is one of the most cutting-edge with regards to anti-ageing formulations.

An essential part of my night routine
The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum is a classic product from Estee Lauder, and in my opinion, this product is one that is definitely worth the hype.
The product comes in a dark brown bottle and is dispensed with a dropper. You only need a very small amount of product so even a 30ml bottle will last and last.
The product is a thick oil serum that you smooth over your face. I only use this product as part of my night time routine as I think it would be too much to use in conjunction with my other products and make up in the mornings. I use it at night after thoroughly cleaning my face and applying toner. I follow it up with a night cream.
After I apply this to my face, it takes a while to sink in, so I try to do a few other tasks while I leave it to really absorb into my skin and lose the initial oily feeling.
When I apply it, the serum immediately feels calm and soothing and adds a moisture boost to my skin.
I always find it hard to review serums as I am of the view that no skin care product is a miracle cure on its own. However, I can say that since I have been using this product, I have not had any dry patches on my usually dry skin. My skin feels generally more healthy and smooth overall. I also can't say that it has made any of the fine lines around my eyes disappear, but I certainly haven't noticed any further damage to my skin since I have been using this, and I do think that my lines have become less noticeable.
I have to say that I like the way my skin feels when I use this serum so I am going to continue to use it whether it is a miracle cure or not!

Glosscars 2014 - Hero product for a reason!
I consider serums to be the most important part of my skincare routine. I've used the older formula ANR & was keen to try the number II formula when it launched last year.
Estee Lauder really know their serums, I think it's what they do best (along with their fragrances).
ANR II has the appearance of the original formula, in both bottle design & the serum colour & texture.
The serum comes boxed, and is housed in a chocolate brown bottle with a tear drop dispenser - I love how it keeps everything pure & fresh.
I only need a few drops to effectively cover my face, neck & decollete, applying it before I apply my bedtime moisturiser. The texture is divine. Silky, smooth, & it sinks in quickly. Even at that stage my skin feels softer & 'primed' for the moisturiser I'm about to apply.
Overnight, the serum works with my skin to repair, balance, hydrate & nourish my skin, ready for a new day. It is important to stick with it for a while - this isn't an 'overnight sensation' result, but more one that is evident with regular use over a few weeks.
Regular use has resulted in my skin looking younger, feeling firmer, and looking less dull. Gone are irritating dry patches, and even sensitivity is reduced. It can easily take years off a tired complexion & restore vitality & youth with regular use.
I notice this is a "hero" product on BH, for a reason. Version one was excellent, but ANR II is in a league of its own - one of the best anti-aging serums on the market

I am resubmitting this review for the Gloasscar awards. This is a fantastic product that is still delivering results for my skin. Love it!
I was lucky enough to trial this fantastic product through the trial team. From opening my special delivery I was pleased with the look of the product. The beautiful blue box and the elegant brown bottle are just divine. Estee Lauder has kept the packaging almost the same as the previous edition of this product so it is easy to know what you are looking for. The product was easy to use. The dropper system works well. I found two drops was sufficient for my face and throat. The smell was in no way overpowering and was a mild pleasant smell. It felt lovely on my skin, soaking in readily and left my skin feeling hydrated. I found the morning after my skin looked plumper and firmer. With repeated use I found my skin was glowing and spots of pigmentation appeared lessened. Having a facial this week after using for a month my beauty therapist commented that I needed much fewer extractions which I put down to this wonderful product. It made me feel better in my self as my skin was glowing. It helped plump my skin so fine lines were less noticeable and pigmentation and pore size was reduced. I just loved it!
