Speed Review: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex

Following my recent review of Nude's Replenishing Night Oil, the lovely Discovering Beauty posted a question asking for my recommendations on night time products to which I responded that I had 3 favourites. Each of the favourites has different qualities and the first one I wanted to share with you is Estee Lauder's infamous Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex.

As a general rule, I tend to shy away from the mid-level, big advertiser brands when it comes to skincare but I honestly feel that this lives up to the hype. As an aside, special mention also goes to Clarins who appear to be investing heavily in their skincare at the moment, with their (admittedly pricey) HydraQuench serum being one of my favourites this year.
Anyway, back to Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex. Although the brown bottle isn't much to look out, it does reiterate the scientific research behind this product, as does the handy pipette dispenser. As you might expect, the serum formula is lightweight. It's quite a liquid serum which encourages a massage application to ensure it's fully absorbed. I don't particularly like the scent of the serum but once absorbed into the skin, I personally don't find that it bothers me.
What I really like about Advanced Night Repair is that you only need to use a little to cover the entire face and gain noticeable results. I've had my bottle for ages and there's still plenty left.
I like to use this when I'm seeking regenerating benefits, be it anti-aging, post-sun exposure or if I'm suffering from a breakout. It's not going to work miracles but I do feel that the reparative benefits live up to the "Advanced" name and I can always see a difference in my skin the next morning and the more I use it, the better the results. Whilst everyone's skin is different, I don't find that this irritates my sensitive skin.
Yes, it's pricey at £54 for 50ml but this award winning night treatment is worth the investment in my opinion.


  1. Thank you for doing this series. I have been really curious about this product, glad to hear it lives up to the hype but the price tag still puts me off!

  2. So pleased you like it. This is a pricey product (actually, just realised all 3 of my favourites are expensive but they do work!)but in terms of £ per ml, it works out as better value than the Nude oil.
