I remembered the card I got from a purchase of a product from Estée Lauder… even though I do not have the card with me now, I recalled it was something empowering to the women.
Such kind of thoughtful small gesture always makes my heart sings.
You can feel or recognize a brand if they exist solely for profit making or comes with something more than that, something deep and meaningful like, leaving a legacy, like this one, and this one. A brand without something solid, something that stands over time and challenges won’t be the same as the one that has it. Mostly all great things or stuffs exist with a considerable amount of time and resources investment being injected into them.
My trust towards Estée Lauder developed after my first purchase of their Advanced Night Repair serum. It was a brief encounter with a Korean guy whom I met at the guest house we stayed at in Switzerland. He has this radiant and clear skin which is pretty normal among the Korean guys but still meeting one in real life somehow made me feeling self-conscious. I am a woman and if a guy care for his skin to that standard, what’s more for me? My friend went further and popped the question on how he took care of his skin and he told us that he was using Advanced Night Repair serum which he managed to afford by giving guitar lessons to his students. We were all students at that time.
After my returned from the trip, I did went on and get one for myself. First of all, it was my first time using a serum. My regular routine involves only the cleanser, toner and moisturizer. Serum was something additional for me but from all the beauty channels I have watched from the TV over the years, I knew serum is good for the skin and to delay skin from aging fast. I should start taking care of my skin perhaps.
The price was quite expensive considering I was just a newly graduated student. That didn’t stopped me from trying in my attempt to achieve something similar like the Korean guy, or to know if the product really was that good. Even though its a product for night time use, I applied it on my face whenever am done with cleansing and applying my moisturizer on.
A month of using the product left a noticeable radiance on my face. I like what I saw from my mirror. One bottle lasts me probably for half a year. I went on getting my second and third bottles after the first one.
I have tried it on a face without having any moisturizer on and slept overnight in a room with low temperature and the next day my skin still felt moisturize and healthy. Whenever I need a quick fix in preparation for that important meeting or event in 1-2 weeks time, this product will do the work.
Currently, I am not using this product but it is a product that I will definitely repurchase again.

As for my second product of Estée Lauder, it is the Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex.
I am not a regular of applying eye cream but I have got my try on this product. The product claimed to repairs, brightens dark circles, hydrates and prevents free radical damage.
Despite the good claims, I don’t have much to say about it. I guess it will take some time to really notice the difference, especially if they are the eyes.
Nonetheless, it is always good to start early in preventing aging eyes. Because the sparkle of youth is in your eyes.
This supercharged treatment—now with 10X Concentrated Repair Technology—helps repair the visible impact of lack of sleep, UV, pollution, even blue light. It’s proven to reveal a bright, hydrated, visibly revived look with comprehensive benefits for the eye area:
REPAIRS Dramatically reduces the look of every key sign of eye aging, including puffiness, lines and dryness.
BRIGHTENS DARK CIRCLES in just 3 weeks.
HYDRATES for 24 hours thanks to a potent hydration booster, including Hyaluronic Acid.
PREVENTS free radical damage with 8-hour anti-oxidant power—part of our multi-action anti-pollution defense technology.
Includes our exclusive ChronoluxCB™ to help promote skin’s natural repair process, which is vital for eyes that look younger, renewed and recharged. The lightweight GelCreme texture absorbs quickly, leaves skin feeling soft and silky.
