Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye - the revamp


The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair range is the stuff of legend and is literally guaranteed a spot in any magazines Top Beauty Products - I didn't fall in love with it right away - but literally this time last year Lauder reformulated - and it made a world of difference. 

Now they've gone a step further. Last year Estee Lauder scientists made the discovery that catabolysis was badly affected by pollution (ozone) levels in your skin - in layman's terms, pollution is preventing your skin from putting the rubbish (trash) out at night, leaving your skin unable to function at its optimum. The result of which could be why your skin never quite looks fresh, bright and glowing (I need to invent a new word for glow - I know I abuse it).

The new Advanced Night Repair Eye Treatments - both the gel cream and the serum, have now had the ChronoluxCB Technology, discovered by Lauder last year, added to them. You won't feel much difference to your product if you already use it, but in essence, your rubbish men have moved up their collections to nightly, without interruption. Very handy. The result for you (which let's face it, is what we all care about at the end of the day)  is a much clearer, brighter, more hydrated, less tired-looking eye area. 
I never say that a cream will fix dark circles - even if a brand makes that claim, because more than the other areas of concern, that's essentially genetics and your body health - and there isn't a cream for that in my opinion (buy an amazing concealer and move on).

Sidebar:
There are a lot of scientific discoveries around at the moment - I've been to 3 launches in the last fortnight alone that include new products hitting the shelves with patented technology and new ingredients etc.. I never get bored of it - some people dismiss it but I am of the thinking that progress is always good. The consumer would be forgiven for thinking that it's another marketing ploy to shift more products but I don't have that concern here. Lauder know what they are doing and have been at the top of their game for a long time. You don't get there without shifting product - and in this day and age that means repeat business and loyal customers. Lauder has both in abundance. 

The New Advanced Night Repair Eye Treatments are available nationwide from 21st July at all Estee Lauder stockists and are available online at www.esteelauder.co.uk

  4. Very informative! thanks, Caroline. I did use the "old" eye serum last year for a while, but though I liked the feel of it, I cannot truly say that it made any difference (though I don't have many wrinkles for my age - proof that using eye cream from your early twenties helps?).
    I must say I have noticed an improvement in my dark circles over the last half year or so. It's sadly not because I sleep more. I always use my toner, serums and oils on the eye area (in the evening, in the morning I now use the new Caudelie eye cream you recommended, but have also used Clinique, Clarins etc). I honestly think that it's linked to quiting sugar a couple of year ago, but I'm certainly no scientist...

    1. Definitely helps. Low sugar and sodium and tons of water!

  5. I regret buying this one. It was expensive and did absolutely nothing to my under eye area. It did nothing to my fine lines and dark circles and didn't make the eye cream absorb better, quite the contrary.
    However, all Estee Lauder products I've tried have failed me, so I'm assuming they send the crap to my country.:(

    1. I'm the same as you, Estee Lauder skincare products don't work for me.

  6. Does anybody know the difference between the face serum and the eye serum?

    1. The Eye serum is lighter as you would expect :)

  7. I think I might have to invest in this one!
    PS How about 'luminous' as a substitute for 'glowing'?!

  8. Interesting that you weren't impressed with the original ANR formula as I wasn't either, both the face & eye products disappointed. Good to know that things have improved... perhaps I'll give it another go.

  9. I have to admit I am confused...there's a gel cream thing for your eyes and a serum...do you buy both? One? Use both at the same time? I've never actually used Lauder skincare products to be honest, I had no idea they were worth exploring! I just sort of dismissed them as all hype, now I am intrigued!

    1. Cream is better for drier skins, serums good for people who tend to get puffy etc

  10. I once had a great Estee Lauder sales person talk to me about the Advanced Night Repair serums. She said if you drink heaps of water and keep your skin hydrated then don't bother buying it, but if you're like many people who don't do that, then you'll definitely notice the difference. The most honest advice i've ever been given at a sales counter.

    1. I LOVE that! I was always honest - you may not make a sale that day but you definitely gain a loyal customer!

  11. This can be used on both day and night? I've always confuse with the ANR usage during day time.

  12. Hi Caroline,

    I have been thinking of starting using a serum. My main problem is blackheads, I have combination skin. Have you got any thoughts on the other Estee Lauder serums? I am quite interested in their Clear Difference one.
    Thanks for your great posts!

    1. I had horrible blackheads untill I started using glycolic's every night. I would recommend you explore chemical exfoliants. BHA's. 😊
