After a good 2 or 3 months of moaning about the war zone that is my face, it has finally began to calm, I have the odd one that pops up occasionally but the real issue I'm left with is the crazy scarring that's been left behind. A few years ago my skin would have healed amazingly quickly and scarring wouldn't be an issue, but as I've gotten a little older (not that I'm old) I've noticed my skin doesn't heal as well as it used to.
After doing some research into serums and trying out a few samples I decided to purchase the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum. The basic gist I got from the research was that it speeds up the skins repair, making it look younger, smoother, healthier, more even and hydrated, and helps to reduce the appearance of past damage and protects from future damage. I was slightly reserved about this product, as these are some pretty hefty claims to make, but I've heard so many good things about it from a variety of people I decided to take the plunge.
The first time I used it, I wasn't sure there was much of an improvement, however the next day and every day after that I found there was marked improvement in my skin tone, it became much more even, smoother, and I can see a marked improvement in scarring and hyper pigmentation - BINGO! The redness in my skin is basically non-existent and it's a lovely product that I've really enjoyed adding to my bedtime routine and really look forward to using.
Does it hydrate my skin or protect it from future damage? I'm not sure, but for all it's claims it does the majority which I think is amazing. If I didn't have a lot of scarring would I use it? Probably not, it's a big investment at £41, but if you have a real need for it then I definitely recommend it. Oh, and the packaging is beautiful, so it looks amazing sitting on my dresser!
Happy Easter everyone!
