We Tried It: Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex Befores-And-Afters

October 16, 2020

The latest version of Estée Lauder’s most beloved product, Advanced Night Repair, is inspired by the science of epigenetics. The word literally means “over genetics,” which is the way what we do and experience affects how genes are expressed. Launched in August, Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex is said to prompt skin to repair itself, using a plant-derived ingredient called adansonia digitata seed extract. We asked three women to try it over a period of four weeks, and the results—skin that’s visibly plumper and firmer, not to mention protected against aggressors like pollution, blue light and UV rays—speak for themselves. —Vita Daily

Vicki, 31: “My skin is combo-oily, and my normal daily routine includes a gel cleanser, toner, niacinamide, serum, moisturizer and sunscreen in the morning and, at night, a cleansing balm, foaming cleanser, toner and heavy cream. As a lifestyle blogger, I do get to try a lot of products, so I was excited to use the new Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex. The serum felt tactile, but it absorbed into my skin very quickly. I was pleased with the changes I noticed over four weeks of use: overall, my skin texture is better and the redness is less noticeable. I did like using this product and will continue to use it, as a serum, and will reintroduce a night cream to my regular routine as well.”

Noa, 41: “My skin is mostly normal, though I have noticed ongoing changes since being pregnant in my late 30s, and have had to adjust my skin-care regime accordingly every so often. That said, the daily routine is sporadic, though I always apply a serum at night. That said, I was very keen to trial the new Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex and see what changes would occur. The feel of this serum is incredible, and I loved how, upon waking each morning, there was a noticeable glow. I saw quick improvement in the texture (smoothness) and tone (redness) of my skin; I think this product is a keeper, and will definitely continue to use it to maintain consistently healthy looking skin.”

Ellen, 56: “I’d call my skin, at this stage in life, normal, but I take really good care of it! My normal routine already includes daily use of Estée Lauder products—I love the Advanced Night Repair serum and cream, and use the brand’s day cream as well. So, I was really excited to try the new Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex. I loved the feel and texture of the serum, but the changes I noticed were not extreme—likely because I have been using ANR for so long! I did see a bit of an improvement in firmness and smoothness over the course of the four week, and look forward to continued use and benefits! In my mind, this and the entire Estée Lauder skin-care line is the best in the business.”
