The Beauty Bible: Our Skin Care Saviour – Advanced Night Repair
Good morning, it’s Friyay! Eeek, only 8 hours of work left and then 2 WHOLE days off. What are you getting up to over the weekend loves?
Over here in Yorkshire, it’s looking like it’s going to be yet another bleak weekend. We hate that yesterday gave us a glimmer of hope to be having a lovely sunny couple of days. Ah well, I guess it’s farewell to to BBQ and drink’s out on the patio (no change there, then)
In the mean time, we are kick-starting your Friday morning the best way possible, with our all time favourite feature, The Beauty Bible. Do remember, if you are looking for some wedmin inspiration for the weekend ahead, why not take a read through this past weeks blogs? We have a lovely recipe for a summer cocktail, all the details of why a wedding planner is a great choice, and our styling tips for a back garden inspired wedding. That reminds us, it’s Pippa Middleton’s wedding this weekend. Have you seen the oh-so dreamy glass marquee (insert heart eyes here)!
Anyhow, to stop me rambling on about how gorgeous Pippa and James are going to look, I have a blog that is going to get you wanting gorgeous summer skin in a flash. And, whilst we all know (far too well) that beautiful skin is VERY hard to get right, at least we can do our research and pick out our top skin saviours to get you on the road to feeling confident and a more beautiful version of you, whether you are getting married or not. Today, it’s all about a cult classic that is loved by ladies (and men, too) all over the world.
Introducing heaven in a bottle, Advanced Night Repair By Estee Lauder.
So, what actually is Advanced Night Repair?
It’s a peachy-coloured, gel-like serum. Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II (ANR, to those in the know) is one of the brand’s top sellers, and has actually been around since the Eighties.
An anti-ageing serum designed to work while you sleep, it acts on lines and wrinkles, dullness and dryness for more youthful and radiant skin. Lovely.
It’s proved to keep skin looking ‘glowy’ for longer. Therefore, works as the perfect treatment for skin as pre-wedding prep. Luckily for us all, the Advanced Night Repair was so popular Estee Lauder have actually brought out a full blown range, dedicated to targeting specific problem areas. This includes, eye serums, hydrating facial masks and soothing balms to help take the day off when you turn in for bed.
Who’s It For?
ANR was originally thought of as an anti-ageing product. However, many now use it for a whole bunch of reasons. That’s all thanks to it’s lightweight texture, moisturising formula and properties that tackle dryness, dullness and dehydration. It improves skins texture, therefore is great for those who have suffered with acne, scarring and too with dry skin. In fact, pretty much any skin type goes. There’s no reason not to use ANR for prevention as well as a cure for problematic skin.
The range can be used to add extra (non oily) glow to your face. Its non-comedogenic, oil-free and fragrance-free formula makes it suitable for oily and sensitive skin too. (We did tell you it was heaven in a bottle…)
Summer Brides, this could just be your skin saviour for a totally natural, and gorgeous skin to last all summer long.
Designed to be worn every single night, ANR comes with a pipette dispenser for extra hygienic application. I have to say, skincare always seems so much more luxurious with a pipette, its it just me?
Estée Lauder’s official advice is to “apply a drop on each fingertip of one hand” and “touch fingertips of both hands together” before massaging into the skin, but for ease we’d suggest that squeezing two to four good-sized drops are enough. Simply smooth over the entire face and neck after cleansing, then follow with your favourite moisturiser.
Why The Wedding Affair Loves It…
Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder is the perfect addition to a basic 3-step skincare routine and is suitable for aalll skin types (yes, really!) and a wide age range, too. We love this product personally because of it’s versatile use. No one likes it when there is an amazing product that get’s all the best reviews, yet it just simply doesn’t work for so many skin types. You feel me?
Having suffered from Acne mean’s that I get this far too often with too many skin care brands. It’s refreshing to know that there are great products out there to target so many different insecurities at once. I feel that this is important to Brides, too. Of course, a wedding is one day of the year, yet there is a desire to look good, and most importantly feel confident too. So, why not have good skin every day of the year with ANR?
Even if you have great skin without any particular skin issues, this serum will still make your skin appear better. In our opinion this is your fairy-godmother-in-a-bottle.
Have you tried out any of the products from the Advanced Night Repair range by Estee Lauder? We would love to know your views, which one was your top product? I LOVE the sheet masks.
