This has been a cult product from Estee Lauder for years. Had to try it.
Was not impressed when it arrived in cheap packaging: plastic dropper bottle. Serum is not too thick, not too thin...just right. Not perfumed. And lightweight on the skin. I have mid aged skin, oily to combo, prone to dehydration, sun damage and under eyes starting to show first expression lines when dehydrated, big pores. Wanted to prevent lines from forming and plump the skin up. I know this serum can not lighten my pigmentation (it did not, but it is not designed to). After using the full bottle of it and sample size of 5 mL on top of this, have seen zero difference in my skin appearance.
Good things: it is enough for my skin to use as all in one: serum and moisturizer. Do not need any other skincare when using it, but spf during the day when on the sun. Since I need corrective skincare, this serum does not do it for me.
Quite pricey for basic moisturizing serum.

I haven't bothered with skincare for a while now as nothing really fazes me or doesn't see much benefit however upon receiving this for my 30th I decided to give it ago as I had nothing to loose.
I applied it at night and immediately I fell in love with how my skin felt straight after the serum. I have never felt my face so hydrated and smooth all from one application. I couldn't stop touching my cheeks. The serum is light and has a cooling effect that felt like I was giving my face a nice glass of water. It also has no smell or perfume which made me feel confident that its good for the skin. It absorbed really fast and I went to bed confident that this was the one I needed all my life. I woke up the next morning super excited to see a nice warm complexion and skin looking really good after so long. my skin wasn't dry and looked hydrated. this is now my life saver!
all though its expensive, its worth every dollar
This is a great serum that will suit someone of any age and any skin type! I have been using it for years and it is definitely a staple in my beauty cupboard. The serum has a silky consistency and slight fragrance. It is very easily applied over the skin and absorbed quickly. After using, my skin feels plump and moisturised. My only comment is that this serum does not have any skin tightening effect.
I was a bit wary to purchase this one due to the price tag but I'm so glad I did. After using it every night for a few weeks I saw a major difference to my skin hydration in the morning. I found my skin looking more dewy and plump, I would highly recommend this product even though it is expensive.
I've used advanced night repair for many years now and it's one of my favourite skincare products. Containing hyaluronic acid it helps smooth and hydrates your skin overnight. I've actually recently really enjoyed using it in the morning because it preps and smooths your skin making it the perfect base for makeup
Recommend this product to the age 25+.
My Skin type is dry combination, I prefer to using this product in winter, it always gives me good results after i applied.
if my skin looks in bad condition (dull, dry, redness), I will use a lot (whole drop) after the toner. and then massage it until it's has been absorbed then put night cream on it.
Next day you will find out your skin looks prefect, definitely would contiue to using this product.
So the first time I used this product I was entirely underwhelmed. For the price I expected instantly perfect skin upon application...I obviously didn't get that. I had a few new serums to try so this one fell to the back of the pile.
Let me tell you how wrong I was; I decided to give it another go, and sure my skin still wasn't perfect upon application but after a few days of application my skin was suddenly more plump and glowy and my breakouts looked less angry and red, and my pores looked less clogged and textured. My skin looks amazing; like I haven't bothered with makeup because I want everyone to appreciate my skin!!!
I have a very generous sample of the product (5ml) so the packaging isn't the same as a full size, which I understand however it is quite hard to get a correct amount out of the container because the product is so liquidy. Which is why I definitely appreciate the fact that the full size comes with a dropper.
When I run out of my sample I will really consider getting a full size, the price is a bit more than I like to spend, but I think if my skin keeps loving it, it will be worth the splurge.
I have definitely recommended this product to friends and family.
My go-to night serum, it’s like liquid gold. This is an amazing product but is on the expensive side. I love the packaging and the dropper enables you to use correct amount without wasting. The product itself is a smooth texture that absorbs into skin and immediately feels more hydrated and supple. Applying before night cream it gives extra moisture as you sleep.
This serum has been my go to for 2 years now & a little goes a long way. I have fairly sensitive skin, a lot of redness and at times rashes from flare ups. I don't use this product every night- rather just every 2nd day or when I really need it. The serum goes one so smooth and silky and absorbs into the skin in seconds. It helps to calm the flare ups, the itching and tight feeling in the skin almost immediately. The redness on my skin is significantly reduced when i use this product and I wake up with hydrated & plumped skin. I sometimes use it as a base before moisturizer and make up and it helps to keep my skin comfortable the whole night. The product is well packaged, presents well, easy to use and transport whilst travelling. This serum is a must have for me!
I love ... really really love this Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II serum. It is truly a beauty in a bottle. The first night I drip a drop on my face of this serum I fell in love immediately. It got absorbed by my combination acne prone skin. The 30ml size bottle lasted for 3 months. I only apply one pump for my whole face and neck every night followed by whatever night cream I have available at hand. Sometimes I don't even follow it up with a night cream and I still wake up to a soft, plump, and hydrated skin. My acne disappears and my dark spots seem to fade. It is pricey for me though I have nothing else to say but praises for this serum. I repurchased a new bottle, it is worth every penny and my ageing skin desperately needs this. I definitely highly recommend this serum especially for mid-thirties to fifties ladies and gents out there.
This is a 5 star product! I finally gave it a try after hearing rave reviews. I use it at night and it feels beautiful on the skin, it just melts in. I noticed a real difference in my complexion after about 3 weeks, my face looked clear, luminous and any pimples that showed signs of popping up healed up really quick. It’s not cheap but a little goes a long way and you will get a lot of days out of it. I like to change up my skin care every so often but this definitely will be a staple!
To say this serum is a skin saver is an understatement. I first tried this product when I received a sample of it about a year ago. The attendant at the Estee Lauder counter explained the benefits and how to use it. That night I used it for the first time and haven't looked back. The serum sinks straight into the skin and leaves it feeling so incredibly hydrated without that greasy or heavy feeling that so many other serums do. I've used it every night since then and there is a significantly visible improvement to the overall appearance of my skin (even my usually non observant husband has noticed and commented that my skin looks younger!).
The product has a light citrus fragrance which makes my skin feel even fresher. It's dispensed by using the included dropper which is perfect for dispensing the correct amount of serum without having any wastage. I usually only dispense about three drops into my hands and gently massage it into my cleansed skin at night before applying my eye cream and night cream. By morning, my skin feels brand new!
While the initial cost is slightly on the pricier side, it's worth every cent, especially considering you don't need to use very much at all to receive incredible results in a short amount of time.
Without a doubt, this has become one of three skin care products that I cannot live without and so far have managed to get five of my best friends hooked on it! A definite must by!
I have been using this serum for close to 3 years now. It is one of two products that I have consistently used and never changed. I sometimes wear it during the day pending my skin's current condition or what climate I'm about to enter. For example, if it's feeling particularly dry or I'm about to board a flight. The texture is light and you don't need a lot at all. Sinks in well when you layer moisturiser on top. It may be a bit expensive for some but a 100ml bottle lasts me a year.
I initially purchased a sample size of this online after reading numerous reviews of how absolutely outstanding this serum is. I simply had to try this much raved about product and judge for myself.
The serum comes packaged in an elegant dark brown bottle with gold lettering and a dropper applicator.
To use, you only need 2 to 3 drops on fingertips to dab on entire face after cleansing at night. The dropper applicator makes it so simple to dispense the correct amount so there is never any wasted.
The serum is a golden color and really is a great texture-not so oily that it slides off hands before you can apply and not too thick that it feels pore clogging and takes forever to absorb. Its a perfect mid range consistency.
It has no discernable scent once applied and melts instantly into skin leaving you feeling like you are wearing nothing at all. I don't even need a moisturizer afterwards,though drier skin types probably would.
Now, I have ultra sensitive combination skin that is prone to breakouts and I basically can't use any products that aren't made of natural ingredients due to near everything causing irritation and further skin issues. This serum just left my skin feeling immediately smoother-no irritation or redness at all.
I woke after the first use and could not believe how smooth my skin felt! I'm not sure exactly how to describe it- it just felt softer,like I'd had quite an expensive facial overnight.
After a few weeks of regular use I can honestly say this is the most effective product I have ever used. Day after day I wake up with skin that feels hydrated,plumper, softened and fine lines are definitely less visible. My acne seems to clear up quicker and old marks have faded significantly.
I have since purchased a full size of this magical potion. It has rave reviews for a reason! It really works!
I'd recommend this for anyone who wants to wake up each day with better skin! Its oil and fragrance free and won't irritate even the most sensitive of skins.
The only negative here is the price,but I find a 30ml bottle lasts me quite a few months as you only need so little each night.
I've tried other serums in the past, but somehow I knew I was eventually going to bite the bullet and switch to ANR. (After all, it's my mom's best-kept secret for looking so much younger than her age!) And indeed, moms do know best! Ever since I started using this, my skin has gotten so much clearer, with my complexion more even and healthy. The creases under my eye (guilty of not getting enough sleep!) have also smoothen out! A little goes a long with this one, and I particularly appreciate how the pump ensures that I don't use too much or that I waste any of it. The texture itself is thick enough that you'll have enough time to spread it evenly on your face and neck without any of it getting absorbed unnecessarily by your fingertips, but thin enough that you won't feel like your piling too much on your skin. I use this just before I put on my night cream before going to sleep, and sunscreeen-moisturizer before starting my day. The only thing I don't like about it is its scent, but it's nothing overwhelming and it quickly disappears upon application. ANR has truly exceeded my expectations! When I get a daughter and she starts getting into the art of skincare, I'd definitely share this secret the same way my mom did with me!
Absolutely amazing product. This serum has made my skin smooth and soft. I love how little effort it takeso to use the product too. I use after cleansing and before moisturiser at night. While the price is not one which is available to everyone, if you are going to treat yourself do it on this!
Spectacular- Estee Lauder Night Repair Serum is amazing it is a rare product that gives a result after one use.
The packaging and container are classy, mature and tactile. Rich bronze glass and elegant dropper, no waste and no haste either.
I love applying this serum, its silky and soft and gives your skin a wonderful fresh sheen, quickly absorbed so theres no greasy layer on your skin. You know every drop is absorbed deep to where it can start repairing your skin.
I have found that my age spots have faded and some of the hormonal breakouts I suffer have also reduced.
This is a great serum to take on trips and in particular to use when your stressed or going through emotional challenges that can show on your face.
Its almost a miracle in a bottle xxxx
I was fortunate to have won this amazing product and I have to admit that I am very intrigued by Estee Lauder. Many of the products have a gorgeous scent that could be made into a perfume and then there is this serum...Even though there isn't much scent to the serum and the consistency is a little thick, I don't mind as the formula seems to effortlessly sink straight into my skin. The simple, brown glass bottle shouts "luxe" very much but its what's within the bottle that really counts and a little product goes such a long way. Some nights I didn't even add a night cream, the serum enough felt just beautiful and nourishing (just a few drops is all). Really is great value for the incredible benefits ahead. I have been using this product ever since I first received it and it must be doing some miraculous work because just recently I had an advertising photo shoot to do and I was told that there would be a Make-up Artist there to do my make-up, which was crazy because I am a Make-up Artist! So I didn't have any make-up on and was wondering after a while why no one was putting any foundation on me. The director was ready and the artist came over to me, straightened my hair and just put on lipstick and told me that I looked too young and that they had to make me look older, so I'm thinking "oh great she's going to pile everything on me", so theatrically she put blush on me in places that I would never put on anyone, to make me look older. I had taken all my make-up with me just in case and I told her I had foundation if she wanted to use it and she said to me "your skin is just gorgeous, you don't need foundation, what are you using!" I thought to myself that she was crazy or lazy and then I looked in the mirror and "WOW" my skin was really good.
So every night that I had been applying Advanced Night Repair was a true blessing as my skin now takes on a more youthful glow, I don't need foundation - unbelievable and the texture of my skin is soft, firmer and back to how it was at least five years ago. Now that's something!
Estée Lauder, we meet again. I am such a fan of all your products I've tried so far, so this world famous night time anti ageing serum just has to be as good as all the hype and reviews I've read.
I ordered a day time moisturiser and got two free samples of this which was a wonderful bonus. Being in my *gulp* late twenties, I needed a specialised serum, for my night time routine, that would get to work banishing and softening and reducing the fine lines I've started to get, so why not start with a world famous serum from an iconic skin care brand that has rave, gushing reviews following it wherever it goes.
That same night, after my usual double cleanse, I applied 3 drops from the perfect dropper applicator and slowly and gently massaged over my entire face. It was a dream to apply, it sank in straight away with no hint of greasiness or residue. Massaging it in felt so luxurious, like I was actually having a professional treatment, always a good thing on an otherwise ordinary weeknight and after that, applying my night cream over that was a breeze, as my skin now felt so smooth and hydrated and soft already.
That was 4 weeks ago now, and each morning when I wake up and look in the mirror, my skin continues to look fresh, rested, feels soft and smooth, and the radiance and glow are just boosted ten fold. Even if I'm tired or don't feel very good, my skin tells a very different and beautiful story. I wake up looking like I've had a professional facial, and 10 hours sleep all at once, every single day.
This product is raved about for a very good reason, because it absolutely works. It absolutely lives up to every claim it makes. I will continue to use every drop of this sample and when it sadly runs out, I will definitely fork out the $98 for a full size bottle, and I know it will be worth every penny.
If you are going to try a famous, iconic product from a truly iconic brand, then please make it this one. It is my 10 hours sleep, professional facial, and more than that, my confidence and beauty in a bottle. What girl doesn't need that?
Beauty sleep in a bottle.
I am a long time user of Estee Lauder skincare products, and this cult favourite is a major reason I return again and again to this brand. I have used the original ANR, and swapped to the SRC II version when it was released a couple of years back.
ANRSRC II is bottled in a deep brown bottle, an ideal colour to keep the contents pure and free from moisture or heat damage in the bathroom. The bottle design is functional with a dropper that seals well and dispenses the ideal amount. I buy the 30mls size, it's good value and lasts through months of nighttime use.
The serum is a lovely golden shade, with a light, luxurious texture & it doesn't feel too oily or dense upon application. It truly feels divine to use, it feels as if it's benefiting my skin from the moment I apply it.
I find it sinks beautifully into my cleansed complexion and that a small amount is all that's needed - I'm able to cover my neck & face area easily with just a modest amount.
Afterwards I apply my regular face moisturiser and literally get my beauty sleep. Regular use gives me skin that has an undeniable healthy glow and looks and feels in optimal condition.
I have a sensitive Tzone, but have noticed no irritation of any sort using this product. I also feel my moisturiser performs better when I have this serum underneath it.
I'm a mid-life age & feel a high quality specialist serum makes a huge difference to my skin texture, tone, & how well my skin retains moisture - ANRSRC II is a serum that ticks all the boxes ten times over. It's exceptional, a true 5 star gem!
