I can’t tell you how many I times fell asleep with my makeup on, in my twenties. Looking back, I would have done things differently―especially since I was notorious for holding my phone against my face (gross). I began listening to my body in my thirties, and it was screaming for help. These days I am adamant about maintaining healthy skin and establishing a consistent routine, morning and night. From cleansing to toning, I never skip a beat. And now that I have added the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair regimen to my evening ritual, every night is the best night ever. Mornings, wearing my Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask, aren’t so bad either.
Using the ANR regimen helped to reset my skin by balancing my overall tone and lightening previous acne scars. I have a really bad habit of picking my face when at home, and caused damage by doing so. What helped me most, was wearing makeup. Since I have a pet peeve of touching my skin when it’s all dolled up, I am less likely to pick. I’ve seen girls touch their face in public and it really grosses me out. Our hands touch all kinds of things throughout the day―including our phones. I read somewhere that there are 18 times more germs on your phone than a public restroom. And we put them on our faces! WHOOSH! sells a really great screen cleaner to kill those cooties.
Seeing the results from ANR, keep my hands at bay. Every night I begin with a fresh face. After cleansing my skin with the Micro Cleansing Foam, or the Micro Cleansing Balm (I alternate, depending on what my skin needs that night), I apply a few drops of the Synchronized Recovery Complex II. This is my favorite step because I began to notice a more radiant complexion, right away. While I allow this to set in, I dab the Synchronized Complex II under my eyes. Alas, puffiness and dark circles are a thing of the past. Finally, and most importantly, I apply oil from an Intense Recovery Ampoules capsule. In just one sleep, I saw my skin’s redness disappear.
It has been 2 weeks since I began the regimen, and I am loving the results. ANR promises to deliver healthy, luminous, youthful looking skin. And it has. I previously went under the needle, so I shaved off a few years already, but my skin’s texture wasn’t looking so youthful. ANR significantly increased luminosity and strengthened my skin, making me look fresh and hydrated. There are other key components I look for in skincare products, like how well the product absorbs into my skin, how well the product cleanses, and the anti-aging factor. I have included my rating on these elements, below. This is also my first go at reviewing products this way, so please let me know what you think, in the comments section.
