Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Recovery Complex
Posted January 25, 2010on:
Eye cream sample is truly loveable. First, we don’t normally test eye cream directly on eye contour at beauty counter, thus sample is crucial. Secondly, eye cream always comes with smaller size which costs as much as moisturizer, hence, eventhough the sample size already save big sum of money. Imagine I only bought a low cost Skin Food eye cream for entire year 2009! Thankfully I received quite a number of eye cream samples via my beauty hauls last year.
I’ve tried this ANR Eye Complex in sample size previously and I was given this sample again last year. Hereby I write a detailed review about this eye complex. As you can see from above picture, it has gel-like consistency, moisturizing and small dots needed for each eye. It temporary smoothes the fine lines and leaves a thin layer of silky smooth film. Depends on quantity I used, the more I applied the longer time for it to settle the non-greasy film.
The Advanced Night Repair Eye Recovery Complex has no artificial fragrance added, but it has signature scent of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, which I never found it offensive. In fact I love the scent. For elusive reason, sometimes it caused temporary warm/burning sensation upon applying it, yet it shown no irritation sign from my patch test, nor on my eye contour. It also contains low hazardous chemical sunscreen ingredient (Polysilicone-11), thus it can be used in day as well, causing no problem to my eye make-up.
Using this day and night, the 5ml sample lasted me about 1.5 months. It retails THB2200 for 15ml, I would be happy to have this free, but not to the extent I’ll pay for it, after all it never improved my trickiest fine lines. I’m still searching the ideal one for both moisturizing and anti-aging treatment.
