Wake Up to Glowy Skin

Over the past six months or so, I have fallen in love with a skincare product.  Each morning, I simply adore awakening  to glowy, even-toned skin thanks to Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair - Synchronized Recovery Complex.  The goal of this formulation is to erase past damage to the skin, while simultaneously protecting against future damage.

I wanted to share my experience with this serum; as I believe it is worth raving over.

My Skin Type:  
Oily and sensitive

I wholeheartedly was extremely weary of trying this product as I was fearful it would breakout me out or make me oilier than I already am.  So thrilled to report that it did neither.  Rather, I wake up each morning with fresh looking, healthy skin.  My skin even looks younger, with less fine lines.  I adore this product!

How I Use It:
Each evening after I wash my face with a gentle cleanser, I apply 3-4 drops from the dropper all over my face and neck.  I rub any excess into my decolletage. I follow it with an oil-free moisturizer.

What Estee Lauder Claims:
The one formula beautiful skin can't live without.

This comprehensive, high-performance anti-aging serum-inspired by groundbreaking DNA research-brings your skin a dramatic reduction in the visible signs of aging.

Use it every day to help continuously repair the appearance of past damage, prevent future damage and deliver high levels of hydration.
If you want younger, healthier-looking skin now and in the future, don't go a night without it.

Feel free to read more about it HERE on their website.  
I suggest visiting an Estee Lauder counter to see if they have a sample on-hand for you to test.  Also, many times a sample bottle is given during one of their GWP events.  
They offer two sizes of the serum on their website or at the counter:
1.0 oz  $47.50
1.7 oz $74.50
I grabbed one at a CCO in TN on a family vacation for about $10 off the listed prices. While the price is rather steep, I am on my same bottle that I purchased six months ago.  If you try the product, I hope you are as smitten with it as I am.  Get ready for glowy, healthy, radiant, younger-looking skin!
