Intensive Recovery Ampoules

5/23/2017


This is a very interesting addition to my skincare stash and I was extremely excited to test it out mostly because I'm a big fan of both, the EL ANR serum and of facial oils. This product merged my two loves together and is aimed at skin which is showing signs of aging - a skincare issue that is becoming one of my primary concerns. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules (60 Capsules | $110) are such a luxurious treat - I consider them mini facials. 

Packaged in a gorgeous glass pot, you'll find 60 ampoules similar to soft gel capsules in appearance. Each ampoule contains a serum-in-oil which is enough for the entire face and neck. The formula is packed with emollients (which are excellent for dry skin), non-fragrant plant oils and antioxidant-rich plant extracts. They have a calming, barrier strengthening, helping and repairing properties to aid stressed and fatigued skin. I can tell you that this really is an effective product for soothing irritated, sensitive or dry skin. 

I often treat my skin with AHAs and BHAs meaning that I need to include renewing products in my skincare. I feel like this product helps my skin recover 1-2 days faster and it makes skin more comfortable and less red & flaky (compared to just one dedicated face oil). While in Vienna, my skin started to flake horribly (something that happens each time I travel) and I felt rather desperate since layering all my creams and oils while none have managed to help the issue single-handedly. Only in conjuction with an intensive recovery ampoule per night (three nights in a row) I've managed to finally control the dryness and irritation. So, for these purposes - I know that they're amazing!

Of course, one can use them as part of a regular skincare regimen and they do soften the appearance of signs of aging - especially if used in combination with other anti-aging products. I found that layered over Advanced Night Repair serum they give the best, most visible and impressive results! Ampoules seem to work in deeper layers of the skin because, after each use, I wake up to refreshed skin that looks plump, has a nice healthy glow and looks overall improved (pores are tighter, fine lines are less obvious). If you can afford it, you can use them nightly but the recommended way is to use it as a 2 week treatment, after which you can use it when necessary.

The serum-in-oil has a very light formula which works perfectly for my combination and dehydrated skin. Ampoules are amazing for traveling (super convenient), if you have very dry skin they're perfect to use before an event or post-vacation at the seaside. They really boost the skin instantly, make it glow and look rested. Very pricy indeed but absolutely effective so if you're in a search for a relatively justified splurge - look no more.

  • Ovo mi je veoma interesantan dodatak njezi kože - opisati ne mogu koliko sam bila uzbuđena zbog početka korištenja jer sam velika ljubiteljica i EL ANR seruma ali i njegujućih ulja za lice. U ovom proizvodu se spajaju te moje dvije ljubavi a dodatno sam bila zainteresovana jer je djelovanje usmjereno ka ublažavanju znakova starenja, što je stavka koja se u posljednje vrijeme progurala na sami vrh mojih prioriteta. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair ampule za intenzivnu obnovu (60 kapsula | 249,21 KM u Inoma Concept Store ALTA) su prava luksuzna poslastica i povlastica za lice - svaka ampula je poput mini tretmana!
  • Upakovane u prekrasnoj staklenoj teglici se nalazi 60 ampulica, sličnih soft gel kapsulama (otvaraju se odvrtanjem vrha). U svakoj ampuli se nalazi serum u ulju čija je količina dovoljna za lice i vrat. Formulacija je obogaćena emolijensima (koji su izvrsni za suhu kožu), neparfimiranim biljnim uljima te biljnim ekstraktima bogatim antioksidansima. Sadržaj ampula ima moćan efekat: djeluju umirujuće na upaljenu kožu, čine je jačom i otpornijom te obnavljaju umornu i oslabljenu kožu. Mogu bez skepticizma reći da je ovo efektan tretman te možda i najjači proizvod iz EL ANR linije.
  • Često na licu koristim AHA i BHA kiseline za pilingovanje tako da njegu volim upotpuniti i proizvodima koji će kožu nahraniti. Pod utiskom sam da upotreba ANR ampula za intenzivnu obnovu proces potpune obnove kože lica ubrza za dan-dva (u poređenju sa korištenjem nekog samostalnog ulja npr. mog voljenog ulja šipka tj. divlje ruže). Dok sam bila u Beču, koža mi se počela strašno perutati i svrbiti me koliko je bila isušena - ovo mi se dešava kada god negdje putujem. Osjećala sam očaj jer, koliko god krema i ulja koristila, nisam uspjela da se u potpunosti riješim perutanja (pogotovo u predjelu brade). Tek sam dovela situaciju pod kontrolu kada sam uz sve kreme i ulja tri noći za redom koristila po jednu ANR ampulu (čak sam ih koristila i tokom dana, ispod dnevne kreme). Tako da vam mogu sa sigurnošću reći da se u ovu svrhu potpuno oslanjam na njih.
  • Naravno, koristim ih i inače (ne samo tokom putovanja) jer su veoma, veoma učinkovite po pitanju ublažavanja izgleda bora i borica. Interesantno je da pojačavaju djelovanje proizvoda sa kojima ih zajedno koristim - to je pogotovo slučaj kada koristim ampule ispod EL ANR seruma (što ima smisla jer su iz iste linije, te sličnog djelovanja). Ampule funkcionišu jer se svako jutro nakon korištenja iznova oduševim glatkoći tena, kako su neravnine i nesavršenstva gotovo pa eliminisana. Koža je meka, pore sužene. bore ispeglane - zvuči kao da se radi o pravom malom čudu. Ako vaš džep to može podnijeti, idealno bi bilo koristiti ih svake večeri ali preporučljivo je koristiti ih tokom prve 2 sedmice svake noći a poslije po potrebi (tako ih ja koristim). 
  • Serum u ulju formulacija je jako lagana (iako na dodir bude jasno da je riječ o veoma laganom ulju) te savršeno odgovara mojoj mješovitoj i dehidriranoj koži. Ampule su veoma praktične za putovanja a ako je vaša koža suha, biti ćete mi zahvalne na savjetu da ih koristite prije nekog važnog eventa i/ili nakon ljetovanja ili bilo kojeg izlaganja kože suncu. Super je što daju trenutan rezultat koji oko može registrovati i ljudi primjete poboljšanje tena. Ampule su jako skupe ali ako ste u potrazi za nečim čime bi počastile kožu a da neće biti bacanje novca - ne tražite dalje, pronašle ste svoj magični štapić!
