New Skin!

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair.

New Skin. Okay, maybe not new skin like a newborn baby bottom but skin that is supple, youthful looking and maintains its elasticity is what women want. Or at least it is what many women want. I am basing this assessment on the steadily increasing number of women having botox, silicone (pick your poison), injected into their lips, foreheads, and smile lines. The first sign of a wrinkle is cause for concern for many women and they start down the road that leads to plastic surgery. I wonder what would happen if preventative measures were taken before resorting to such extremes?

I have been blessed with wonderful genetics and I sure that I look much closer to 30 than I do to 40 (in reality the big 4 oh is right around the corner). Couple my youthful appearance with a loss of about 25 pounds and I have no doubt that I could pass for late twenties. Given that I am the progeny of a long line of youthful looking folks, I really want to maintain my wrinkle free face. Enter Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair. This potion counteracts the nasty impurities and damaging things that our faces are subjected to on a daily basis. At night while I rest the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair does its magic. I simply have to wash my face, use the dropper to ensure I get it in all my nooks and crannies and then rub it into my skin. I follow up with moisturizer and then I am off to bed. That is unless something comes up that I absolutely have to deal with and then I must delay retiring but my face is still covered so that counts right? But I digress.

The advanced night repair is going to help put some moisture back into my skin and since I've been known to occasionally forget to moisturize, this is a good thing. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and I have to admit since part of this time I was dealing with Aunt Flo I really was focused more on the acne that was flaring up rather than trying to measure if my face felt more supple. However, I have been using it daily and this has forced me to focus on my skin care routine which ultimately will help the Estée Advanced Lauder Night Repair do its job. I mean, it is not miracle potion, I do have to cleanse my face thoroughly morning and night and moisturize too. I like the way it feels on my face, it has a consistency that is somewhere between water and oil but it is just right. Not too oily and not too watery. I have plans to continue using it for the prevention of damage to my face that can result in wrinkles and I also am pretty sure that I will try the eye repair. My eyes are the one area that I am concerned about. I know the skin around the eyes is the most sensitive and if I look from just the right (or perhaps I should say wrong) angle I can see wrinkles forming under my eyes.

Overall I think investing in your skin is the best gift that you can give yourself. No one wants to go under the knife (or use botox for that matter) so I say join me in doing some preventative work and try Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair (retail price $47.50). What do you think? Are you up for prevention or do you plan on taking short cuts? Have you tried Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair? Thoughts?

oooh! I would love to try this but it is really out of my price range :( Maybe I should go for the 10 day trial if I can make it to the mall tomorrow.

I agree, your genetics are superb :) I too plan to be as fly and fab looking as my mom when I get to be her age! Thanks for the info on the product.

That sounds like a good one to try. I have been concerned with my acne prone skin now that since I will be heading in the 40 and fly category in a couple of years. :) I will have to look into the 10 day supply.
