Skin care has become one of the few things I am some kinda sorta obsessed about. I guess when you’re in your thirties you’re more conscious now on how your skin looks sans makeup. While I do like to try different brands and different skincare products, I do have some favorites. One of which is Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair.
Advance Night Repair (ANR) is one of Estee Lauder’s best-selling product. And it was one of the first skin care product I’ve tried from the brand. I love it because it’s lightweight yet potent enough to care for my skin–giving me that luxuriously soft & smooth skin.
Now if you’re thinking on investing in skincare, here’s a five step guide on Estee Lauder’s Night Ritual.
STEP 1: Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm
What it is: The lightweight balm melts into a silky cleansing oil, then transforms with water into a milky emulsion that rinses easily for a clean, conditioned feel without any grease residue. Removing face and eye makeup and impurities, including pollution, it purifies deep within skin’s surface to improve overall healthy look.
When to use it: Applied over dry skin. Massage over dry skin nightly including closed eyes and rinse off thoroughly with warm water. Follow with Micro Essence and Advanced Night Repair to create the ultimate nighttime regimen.
STEP 2: Micro Essence Treatment Lotion
What it is: First-of-its-kind “essence-in-lotion” that strengthens skin’s foundation with micro power to reveal a translucent, angelic glow from within.
- Strengthens skin’s barrier, an essential foundation for healthy skin
- Calms irritation so energy is directed towards re-building and re-strengthening
- Fuels energy potential, which is needed for skin to perform at its peak
- Intensifies deep moisture for natural renewal to maintain a strong, supple feel and reflect light from within
When to use: Am and PM after your facial cleanser and before applying Advance Night Repair Serum.
STEP 3: Advance Night Repair Serum (ANR)
What it is: Estee Lauder’s best-selling product that reveals a smoother, more radiant and younger looking skin.
When to use it: AM and PM after your Nutritious Vitality Lotion and ANR Eye Serum. Apply one full pump of serum to the palm of your hand. Rub palms together and pat the serum onto your face in a gently heart shape motion.
STEP 4: Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream
What it is: Estee Lauder’s most comprehensive anti-aging eye treatment. Proven to reduce the look of every key visible sign of eye aging: fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and unven skintone.
When to use it: Apply 3 tiny dots to each cleansed eye area AM and PM.
STEP 5: Revitalizing Supreme + Global Anti-Aging Power Soft Creme
What it is: an ultra-soft, lightweight texture, developed for and tested on Asian women, delivers powerful anti-aging benefits and minimizes the look of pores over time. One creme that “does it all”, this multi-action moisturizer cocoons skin in moisture and is the potent key to younger-looking skin, helping unlock skin’s youth potential; skin springs back with new bounce and glows with radiant vitality.
When to use it: Apply over face and neck AM and PM. Ideal after repair serum.
If you want some extra TLC you can also use:
Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules
What it is: this powerful recovery concentrate calms and rapidly renews the look of over-stressed skin, helping to strengthen its resistance against future assaults. Use it especially when skin feels stressed-from environmental damage, lack of sleep, travel, even changes of season or weather.
How to use: Apply PM after your repair serum, before your moisturizer. Twist capsule open, dispense into palm and massage lightly over skin using fingertips.
Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask
What it is: Reset the look of your skin after the visible assaults of modern life with this innovative weekly treatment mask. Instantly, skin looks fresher, renewed. EL’s Worldwide First: PowerFoil. High-performance foil-backed sheet mask creates a protective barrier, allowing the potent technologies to penetrate fast and deep within skin’s surface and helping to lock in moisture. 2X Hyaluronic Acid. Each treatment delivers a surge of liquid revitalization, immersing skin in a double dose of Advanced Night Repair Serum’s powerful moisture magnet. Also includes their proven ChronoluxCB™ technologies. Experience an ultimate infusion of youthful moisture.
The Night Ritual usually takes about 15-20 minutes. Even though I’m so tired from a long day, I make sure I still get to do my skincare.
Doing the Estee Lauder Night Ritual at least once a week has worked wonders on me. It’s like going to the spa for that much needed skin pampering. I love how it always gives me that luxurious feeling especially the morning after— I get soft and smooth skin at its best.
