Today, I have for you another skin care product. We all know that the skin around our eyes is thinnest and more delicate than that on the rest of our face and so is most susceptible to the damage from internal and external stress factors. Fatigue, age, pollution, all take a toll on this delicate skin around our eyes, robbing it of its youthful glow, and adding age to our appearance. I have very troubled under eye skin. I have lots of fine lines and wrinkles. Most of them are due to hereditary and others have appeared in the past one year or so. Though I have been regular with my under-eye cream application (this was the only skin care routine I used to follow religiously, well, maybe because I am an IT professional!!!), but still did not get any benefit from it. I am 30 but my under eye area seems to be 8-9 years older. 🙁 I have tried various eye creams and then thought of giving Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex II a try since everyone raves about Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Complex II serum, so eye care cream should be at par too, right!!! Let us see if it performs on the lines of ANR serum or not.

My Experience with Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex II:
Let us start with the packaging – the cream comes in an amber-colored thick plastic tub. The tub looks to be made of glass, but I am thankful it is plastic. The tub comes in usual EL blue colored carton which is almost double its size and contains product details. They have also provided an applicator/spatula along with it and I am glad that they did, though I would have any day preferred tube packing. The tub packing is not only unhygienic, but also, I doubt how long would the ingredients stay effective with regular exposure. Anyway, the applicator is really good and the ball shape picks up enough product for a single use. Just a light dip would do else it picks up more product.
The consistency of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex II is like a gel cream. It glides on easily, gets readily absorbed and feels hydrating. It is very light, leaves no stains, and there is no sticky feeling and one can easily wear make-up on top of it.
Now coming to the effectiveness of this super pricey cream – the company claims that the product reduces the look of every key visible sign of eye ageing – fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and uneven skin tone. And boy!!! it does work. I am using this cream twice daily for 5+ weeks now and I see a major change in my under eye area. The fine lines have drastically reduced as well as dark circles. The puffiness is gone and no matter how less or badly I sleep, this cream makes me look awake and my under eye area is getting better day by day. Though there is no difference in the wrinkles yet, but I guess they would take some more time.
Also, when I started using the cream, in just 2 weeks, I saw major change in dark circles but since then, they are more or less same, I don’t have major dark circles to begin with. But then no cream can totally eradicate them if I don’t sleep well. 😉 So yes, do get you beauty sleep girls and drink a lot of water as well, along with using the product. 🙂
The cream is super pricey. And you get just .5 oz for almost 60 bucks!!! :O But yes, just a teeny bit is needed. I use it twice a day and I guess the tub would last me another 2-3 weeks, that means a tub holds good for me for around 2 months.

- Spatula is provided along with the jar.

4.5/5 – It is no doubt a 5/5 product, but I am reducing points some just for the price.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex II?
The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye is on the pricier side and the jar packing is not very hygienic. Despite the drawbacks of this product, this is still my favorite eye cream and I will definitely re-purchase! If you are on a lookout for an eye cream that really works, try this out girls.
