You’ve had a crazy week.
Back-to-back meetings, then on to a night out with friends.
Important board meeting the next morning, and you have to look fresh, polished, and alert.
Repeat this hectic routine, five days in a row.
And you wish there was something that could keep your skin looking supple, clear, and dewy the next day (even when you have had very little sleep, and running on adrenaline and caffeine).
Such a beauty potion probably doesn’t exist.
But then, Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules ($196 for 60 capsules), comes close.
I’ve been a long-time fan of Estee Lauder’s iconic Advanced Night Repair (ANR) serum.
It perks my skin up and makes it look like I had eight hours of sleep the night before.
So I had high hopes for these ampoules which are “fast-acting”, help to soothe skin, support the its nighttime repair functions, while boosting its resilience.
Each capsule dispenses just the right amount of serum which has a dry oil texture (not greasy, absorbed by skin really quickly, and leaves behind a satiny finish). It left my skin feeling comforted and pampered, like how you would feel when pulling a plush blanket over your body before bed.
And because I needed it, I wanted to maximise the results of the ampoules. So I layered it with the ANR underneath, and finished with a lightweight cream on top.
The next morning after a long night out, my face still looked supple and smooth (while it would usually look a little patchy and flakey in certain areas if I didn’t sleep enough). My make-up also went on more smoothly.
These capsules are also so easy to carry around when you need to travel…just keep them in a pill box.
So get the ampoules already.
