A product for stressed skin: The new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrate

| ,

I was a bit late to the game trying the Advanced Night Repair range – first using the cult classic Advanced Night Repair only three years ago. However, as soon as I tested it, I immediately understood the buzz and allegiance that many people have to it. For me it is one of the products that always consistently makes my skin look great. Sometimes I will try a product and after having it work for a few weeks or months, my skin will not respond well to it anymore or I won’t get the same results. With Advanced Night Repair, every time I add it back into my routine my skin loves it. It helps everything look more even, calm, hydrated and addresses wrinkles, fine lines and dullness. Since first trying the original Advanced Night Repair, I have eagerly tested other products from the line (the ampoules are amazing and work wonders in the winter when I need extra nourishment).

The newest addition to the Advanced Night Repair range is the Intense Reset Concentrate. The formula is designed to help immediately calm and soothe the skin, provide intense hydration and defend against free-radical damage. I am someone that is always putting as much hydration as I can into my skincare routine so the fact that it has a concentrated form of hyaluronic acid was hugely appealing. The first thing I noticed when I began testing the concentrate was how calm and even my skin looked 15 minutes after applying. Any redness was noticeably gone and even the blemishes on my face looked less inflamed. My skin typically gets very irritated and sensitive during certain times of the month (hormones, ugh) and this Intense Reset Concentrate has really been helping to balance things and keep my skin much less inflamed and irritated. I have been using it alone as my serum following up with a night cream or face oil but have also begun using it after I apply the Advanced Night Repair and I love how the two together really calm my skin and make it look refreshed and hydrated.

Review: Sisley Velvet Sleeping Mask

| ,

It’s been almost 8 years since Sisley last released a face mask (the Black Rose Cream Mask), so I was ecstatic when their newest Velvet Sleeping Mask arrived in the mail! If you haven’t yet tried any of Sisley’s masks, they are cult classics. Here is a quick rundown of the three most popular ones:
  • Express Flower Gel Mask – This is an intensely hydrating mask that feels like a shot of water for your skin. It’s cooling and immediately helps to replenish moisture in the skin.
  • Black Rose Cream Mask – This one is my personal favorite. It’s a thick cream texture that nourishes the skin, plumps, smooths and firms. It’s a great mask to wear before a big event or when you need to whip your skin into shape very quickly. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then tissue it off pressing the excess into the skin.
  • Radiant Glow Express Mask – For an instant glow, this is the mask to use. It helps to exfoliate, brighten and give the skin a deep cleanse. I love to use this and follow it up with either the Express Flower Gel Mask or the Black Rose Cream Mask.

The Velvet Sleeping Mask is an overnight mask designed to help nourish and restore your skin as you sleep. Normally sleeping masks are a bit too heavy for me to wear overnight, but I was able to use a small amount with no issues and my face didn’t feel tacky or stick to my silk pillowcase as I slept (the worst!). I noticed that it immediately calmed my skin after I applied and when I woke up, my skin looked fresh and felt incredibly supple and soft.

In addition to using it overnight, I also love using it as a wipe off mask for a more immediate treatment. I apply a thick layer of the velvety cream and leave it on for 20 minutes. I tissue it off with a warm cloth and press the excess into my skin. My face feels so plump and looks instantly revitalized. For more of my Sisley favorites, scroll through the widget below.
