QUICK REVIEW: The best repair serum in its class – compared to Lancome Genefique, L’Oreal Youth Code and SK1N Probiotics Systems Booster Serum – all have Bifida Ferment Lysate (a probiotic). A reliable standard.
the REVIEW (1/16/2011): The original Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder is one of the first department store skin care products I remember buying in the early 90’s (although its been around for almost 30 years) when I got into luxury skin care. There was and still is something nostalgic and comforting about the little brown bottle. Over the years I have repurchased the original formula, the Concentrate and the newly re-formulated Synchronized Repair Complex version. In all honesty, there was nothing wrong with the original version.
In the bottle is a pale amber colored liquid serum that absorbs quickly without leaving a residue. It does not have silicone (hooray!) – so don’t expect an immediate “smoothing” effect. Who can really say how much skin care actually prevents (other than sunscreens) – but all the marketing jargon aside, this serum is a great first starter piece for those beginning to indulge in higher end skin care without going overboard. The effects were consistent – no breakouts, no rash and compatible with other skin care products. It also works just fine in the morning under makeup. Overall, a reliable standard.
