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.

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!

This super serum is such a worthy contender for a Glosscars 2014 award. It really is a must have serum for anyone concerned with the visible signs of aging and generally lack lustre skin.
The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex ll comes packaged in a plastic amber squarish bottle with a dropper applicator. The dropper is perfect, as you only require a few drops to apply to your face and neck area.
I apply the serum at night, after I have cleansed and toned my face, it absorbs very readily into my skin, then I follow by applying my usual nighttime moisturiser. The serum has a unique fragrance that is not too overpowering and once applied it's undetectable.
I am in my 40's with a young child and very much sleep deprived. The lack of sleep, hectic days and hormonal changes has played havoc with my skin and this amazing serum has worked wonders for me.
My main concerns are fine lines, reduction of tone and elasticity, hyperpigmentation and loss of skin radiance. This wondrous serum has helped improve the look of my skin to no end and has been my skin saviour. I have used both the original and improved versions of Advanced Night Repair and would highly recommend it to anyone concerned with aging skin .
In the morning, my skin feels so soft, plump and I look quite well rested, even on the days when my sleep has been disturbed. This year I turned 45 years old and I think my skin looks pretty good for a woman in her mid 40's. I can credit this amazing serum to keeping my skin looking as good as it possibly can.
There is so much science and research that has been utilized in developing this amazing serum but the proof is in the way my skin has responded to this. A holy grail product for me!

Glosscars – Holy Grail Serum
The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II has been my holy grail serum for a long time now. While I don’t have ageing skin as of yet, I look for a serum that can protect my skin from environmental factors, rejuvenate my skin, even out my skin tone, moisturise my skin, and repair any damage. The Estee Lauder serum does all these things and more. I have this serum in the 50ml size (it also comes in a 30ml container) and I find that this can last me over 6 months with daily use. Only a small amount is needed for each application because it spreads into the skin well and the formula is so potent.
The first thing I love about the serum is the way it comes packaged in a bottle with a dropper applicator. The dropper applicator ensures that I can get the desired amount of product each and every time without wasting any. I also like the dropper applicator as it is the most hygienic way of dispersing the product. The amber gold serum is a liquid consistency that isn’t too runny or thick – it strikes a nice in between balance.
To apply, I use the dropper every night after cleansing to apply a couple of drops of the serum to my fingertips. I then rub the product between both hands and begin pressing the product into my skin and lightly massaging it into the skin. The serum absorbs into the skin like an absolute dream – it doesn’t leave any greasy residue on the surface of my skin and doesn’t feel heavy at all. With most serums I am usually cautious to apply it all over my face as I have combination skin with an oily t-zone. However with the Estee Lauder serum, I confidently apply it all over my face because I know that the formula is lightweight enough to sink into the skin without breaking me out. The serum advises that it should be used in conjunction with a night cream, however I find this serum to provide the perfect amount of hydration to my combination skin. The serum is also oil and fragrance free which is great.
After using this product every night for consecutive weeks and months, the results are amazing. I wake up every morning and my skin looks radiant and rejuvenated, as if I have had the best night’s sleep. Whenever I have a blemish, the serum does a great job at reducing the redness of it and helping to diminish the appearance of it. I love that when a mark has been left on my skin from a blemish (that would usually take a while to clear up), this serum works so well to clear up any marks and repair the skin fast. I have noticed that with use, my pores look smaller in appearance, my skin tone looks more even and my skin feels so incredibly smooth. The Estee Lauder serum is liquid gold in a bottle – it’s the perfect all rounder serum and even with the expensive price tag, I will continue to repurchase this because the results are worth every dollar.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II
I have written several reviews about the original Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex and the latest formulation of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II. over the years.
It is hard to to explain exactly how much I believe in this miraculous product.
If I was asked a hypothetical question.
"If you could only one skincare item with you if you were stranded on a desert island, what product would you take?"
My immediate and uniquivable answer would be Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II. is packaged in an amber coloured plastic bottle with a gold lid that doubles as a precise measuring dropper.
I apply after cleansing my face in the evening.
The complex is a pale orange colour and is quite lightweight when applied to my skin.
The serum absorbs into my skin instantly leaving my skin feeling plumped and smooth.
After a few minutes I then apply another Estee Lauder product, Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Ageing Creme which is a fantastic new product it doubles as a day cream and a night cream.
I do love a two in one product.
I have been using both the original Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex and Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II nightly for close to 18 months.
I am 52 years old and the results have been staggering.
Hand on my heart since using this product I have not aged and my skin tone, texture ,plumpness and resilience has improved dramatically.
My husband believes I have made a deal with the devil and that a picture of Dorian Gray is hiding somewhere in our cellar.
I can recommend this product whole heartedly.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II is my HOLY GRAIL product.

I consider a quality serum an important part of my skincare regime. I was very excited to receive several 7ml sample size bottles of this luxurious product. A little goes a long way, so I got a few months use out of these, and I really can see why everyone raves about this beautiful product. The serum has almost a nectar like consistency. All you need is a few drops. It is very light, but also very hydrating for my dry skin. It absorbs very quickly without leaving any greasy residue. It has a very light citrusy kind of scent, but it is hardly noticeable, and seems to disappear very quickly. I apply this to freshly cleansed skin and leave it to fully absorb before applying my usual night time moisturiser. I could see quite a dramatic difference in my skin after just a few days of use. My skin was radiant, glowing, soft, smooth, and plump. I would definitely purchase a full size bottle of this beautiful serum, but it's a little out of my price range for now. I would highly recommend this beautiful serum for anyone, and definitely consider it worthy of a Glosscars award.

Why should this win a glosscars 2014? The estee lauder advanced night repair serum is luxious, smooth, soaks into skin instantly and leaves your skin radiant glowing and balanced!
Do you believe a product can save your skin, balance oilness, eliminate fine lines, hydrated skin, decrease pigmentation and rid your skin of pimples? No? well after using countless serums, antiageing creams and products over the years, so did I - and then Advanced Night repair synchronised recovery complex found its way into my life.
The estee lauder advanced night repair serum comes in a brown plastic bottle with simple gold writing on the front and a simple easy to use squeezable gold dropper. Before heading to sleep I squeeze the dropper - which distributes the perfect amount and apply all over my face and neck. I only need around a 20 cent piece.
Now what makes this serum different is that within a mintute or two of applying it- it has completetly soaked into my skin- no greasy and no oily residure- which as a combination skin suffer is perfect. For me I also fnd that on contact this product seems to warm my skin up for a few seconds- im not sure if its just me- its not uncomfortable- and it fades.
The past 2 months before usig this my skin was going crazy- it was breaking out, suffering from dryness and I was starting to develop some fine lines-within 2 months of this serum my life and skin has changed. This product seems to eliminate all dryness- and somehow balance my skin- im not left with any pimples or breakouts, and my skin is soft and smooth.
After applying this amazing serum at night, I wake up with the most radiant clear skin I have ever seen- my skin seems to glow- I even need to wear less make up-
This product is like 8 hours sleep in a jar. You can also apply a night cream after as it absrobs instantly- but sometimes I only need to apply this- as I dont have overly dry skin.
Within 2 months use of this product- my skin has changed- the fine lines have diminished, and my skin looks smooth and soft and almost balanced out. I suffer from slight pigmentation on my cheeks and I have noticed that this seems to have faded with the use of this product! Ive also noticed that my pore size seems to have decreased dramatically.
Overall Im loving this product and will continue to use it all this year! It gives me radiant, glowing skin!
