Estee Lauder Introducing New MICRO ESSENCE Skin Activating Treatment Lotion

 

A week ago, I’ve mentioned about my weak skin’s barrier that causes skin sensitivity and irritation, and I have briefly introduced a new skincare product which is exclusively designed to help strengthen skin’s barrier, calm irritation and intensify deep moisture for a stronger more resistant skin foundation.

This new treatment essence is Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion.

I must confess my impaired skin’s barrier function is mainly caused by the frequent use of harsh products (like high concentration of alpha hydroxy acids) over a long period of time. I was so wrong thinking a daily use of AHA product may help to exfoliate my dead skin cells for a flawless, youthful skin. I didn’t realize I was causing more damages to my skin by over exfoliating it. Over-exfoliation has triggered my inflammatory response and led to a compromised lipid barrier with sensitized skin condition. And that results an increase of hyperpigmentation too. Well, what’s done cannot be undone. :-(

Estée Lauder NEW Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

 

Do you know one of my beauty secrets to healthy and glowing skin is to get adequate sleep?

Studies have shown that lack of sleep may speed aging process that leads to lackluster skin, fine lines, and dark circles under the eyes.

What’s My Skin Doing While I Sleep?

In the day, my skin gets a battering from the sun’s rays, dust, dirt and pollutants. And at night, as my skin’s metabolic rate speeds up, my skin goes into repair, replenish and restore mode. While I sleep, my skin renews itself. New skin cells grow and replace older cells. It is therefore essential to feed my skin with potent nutrients (from serums) while I sleep.

A while ago, I was pleased to receive a complimentary bottle of the new Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II (in 50ml). It is an improved version of the previous version Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex.

The recently clinical trial, commissioned by Estee Lauder, demonstrated that poor sleepers show signs of premature skin aging and a decrease in their skin’s ability to recover after sun exposure.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Celebrating 30 Years Of Innovation

.

Last Tuesday, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair celebrating its 30 Years of Innovation and I was privileged to be invited for the exclusive grand event at Grand Hyatt Hotel The Gallery.

This 30th anniversary celebration was attended by media representatives from magazines, press and major departmental stores.

It was an eye-opening event and I truly enjoyed it! During the event, I was glad to uncover the history, breakthrough and innovation behind the Advanced Night Repair in the past 30 years!

My first impression

In fact, I was first introduced to Night Repair way back in late 1980s when I was barely 20 years old. One fateful day, I was accompanying a colleague (who was 10 years older than me) to Estee Lauder counter at Tangs Orchard to check out the product. Back then, it was called the Night Repair Cellular Recovery Complex. My first impression of it was great and I was pretty impressed that it is the first night treatment ever introduced to the market. Its luxury packaging seem impressive too and I actually tempted to buy one.

Advanced Night Repair

30 years of innovation. 3 significant launches.

In 1982, Estee Lauder launched its first innovative night treatment Night Repair Cellular Recovery Complex. It is the first product developed to help skin repair and recover from the visible effects of environmental assaults. A groundbreaking discovery of working in sync with the skin’s own natural process and circadian rhythms, repairing the signs of aging during sleep.

In 1991, nearly after 10 years later, Estee Lauder reformulated the Night Repair with proprietary antioxidant technologies to help boost skin’s natural renewal process and ability to recover from damage and repair the visible signs of aging overnight. Advanced Night Repair Protective Recovery Complex was born.

In 2009, Estee Lauder’s continuous research in genetic aging has led to a new discovery – Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex. Formulated with exclusive Chronolux Technology that synchronizes clock genes in skin cells and ensures optimal natural repair. It reduces signs of aging and repairs the appearance of past damage caused by major environmental assault. In addition, it neutralizes up to 90% of environmentally generated free radicals and locks in moisture. The formula has over 20 patents worldwide.

Estee Lauder is among the first skincare brands to discover that DNA damage is the root cause of all skin aging. Environmental assaults such as air pollution and sun’s aging rays can cause damage to skin cells and their DNA. Even though our skin have the natural ability to repair itself but the natural repair process will be overwhelmed due to the multiple continuous new assaults that our skin have yet to adapt. What’s worse, skin’s natural ability to repair damage decreases as we age.

I have to confess! I’m a super fan of Nu Ren Wo Zui Da 女人我最大, a popular Taiwanese Beauty Variety Show.

I was surprised to see amazing results and therefore decided to make a trip down to one of the Est©e Lauder outlet to check out the products.

After some product testings at the counter, I immediately fall in love with the CyberWhite Ex Extra Intensive Purifying Treatment. This interesting foaming whitening mask is considered one of the best innovative breakthrough by Est©e Lauder.

Review – Estee Lauder Soft Clean Silky Hydrating Lotion

..

I have came across Estee Lauder Soft Clean Silky Hydrating Lotion at one of the beauty review site and it is reviewed as one of the “BEST TONER” in the market. So to give it a benefit of the doubt, I decided to give it a try and to see if it is what it has claimed to be.

For the last couple of years, I have never stopped searching for a good toner. I have tried and tested numerous toners but I finally realized that it is so hard to find a suitable toner for my skin type – rosacea and sensitive skin.
