Lots of office hours, lack of sun and relatively bad diet (don’t judge ) left my skin very dry, sensitive with a mild windburn and a severe lack of luster.
Is hard to love the winter from skin point of view.
So for weeks, I have been on a mission to find something
to include in my night routine that is super calming, soothing and hydrating and doesn’t wimp out after a little while.
Is no surprise for me that I found the answer at Estée Lauder counter, I have been using for years the Advanced Night Repair serum, is one of my addictions, and over the years I always come back to Estee products knowing that they always have something that works for me.
When the girl at the counter suggested me Advanced Night Repair Recovery Mask-In-Oil, I must admit I was a bit skeptical, mainly because of the packaging. It looks like a smaller bottle of Advanced Night Repair Recovery Mask-In-Oil slightly more light colored and a bit sheerer. But I was surprised by the texture of it, an oil that is so silky and not oily at all and left a beautiful glow (to the back of my hand). As I wasn’t yet decided, I asked for a sample to try at home.
To my surprise it worked from the very first use, by morning my skin looked dramatically better and even had a little bit of glow. So I went back purchased the mask-in-oil, and I’m using almost every night it ever since.
Launched at the beginning of this year, Advanced Night Repair Recovery Mask-In-Oil as a new member of its Advanced Night Repair product range, Its primary purpose is to help seal in all benefits of the ANR serum, thus promoting a highly efficient, nighttime skin recovery.
Estee Lauder says:
• STRENGTHENING SKIN
• SUPPORTING SKIN’S NATURAL RECOVERY
• DULLNESS, LOSS OF RADIANCE
What is Advanced Night Repair Recovery Mask-In-Oil?
A nourishing and lightweight oil that envelops the skin in a protective layer to increase the effectiveness of their Advanced Night Repair Serum.
Its primary role is to strengthening the skin’s protective barrier by supporting the filaggrin and increase the hydration level of the skin.
It also delivers a complex of lipids, Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and their chronolux™ technology that claims to “repair past damage.”
Who is this for?
Intended as an active anti-aging product, I would say anyone 30+
What type of skin is this for?
Combination to dry and very dry skin
How do you use it?
On top of your serum and right before moisturizer
Suitable for day use?
Not suitable for day use, tried and just made my makeup a mess
Suitable for around the eyes skin?
No, I tried that and (man does it sting) I got my eyes irritated. Rinse well with water if happens.
Other products I used at the same time with:
Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II Serum both for face and eyes and Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream from Kiehl’s
On the official website, they recommend using is with AVN serum
How long did I use the product for
A bit over five weeks now, 6-7 times a week. I will keep updating though
How does it smell?
The smell of the oil is delicate sweet floral and a bit omega-ish, don’t know if this makes a lot of sense but it kind of smells like the omega 3-6-9 ampoules. Not so strong, though, but the scent is there. Now on the bright side, the smell doesn’t linger and is not a strong one either.
But if you don’t like scented skincare this one might not be for you.
What did I like about:
A little goes a long way, you only need 2-3 drops to cover all your face and neck ( I always use my face products down to the neck )
For me this was a product that delivers, my skin feels softer, smoother, plumper and since I use it, I got quite a few compliments on how radiant my skin is when I was wearing nothing than my bare skin.
What I didn’t like about
Pretty up there in price, and it seems to be quite the same formula with Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules. Plus size you have more product in Advanced Night Repair Recovery Mask-In-Oil but over the time might be less efficient than Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules. Don’t know just saying, love the fact that ampoules are one dose protected by a shell, the bottle you keep open and close it one time a day. There is always a bad and good in everything, but seriously aside from the price or the very alike formula, I don’t see anything bad about.
You might not want this product if you already own the Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules or if you don’t like scented skincare.
