I absolutely love Estée Lauder products. I have some I love more than others, but after much searching, I finally feel I have settled into a very solid skincare routine. I have loved Estée Lauder's Advanced Night Repair face serum for the last few years, so when I needed a new eye-care product, this caught my eye (no pun intended).

I turned 34 last fall and, while that is not old by any means, I felt like my eye area was starting to show some fine lines and crepeiness and it needed a little extra attention. I needed something other than what I was using to make myself feel better. I was at Ulta and picked this up on a whim.

I usually diligently read reviews before buying anything, especially a pricey skincare product, but I didn't and had some remorse when I got home and read some reviews. This doesn't have the strongest rating, but I was determined to give it a shot.

Purchasing

This eye serum costs about $69.00 for 0.5 ounces. It can be bought anywhere that sells Estée Lauder, such as, Ulta, Sephora, department stores, Amazon, and EstéeLauder.com.

Estée Lauder offers a few other products in the Advanced Night Repair line, such as a synchronized recovery complex for face and eyes, eye and facial sheet masks, and another product or two.

I have tried and LOVE the synchronized recovery complex facial serum, but I didn't have remarkable results with the supercharged complex synchronized recovery for eyes.

Packaging

When you purchase this, it will come in Estée Lauder's signature baby-blue box. Inside will be a brown glass bottle with a gold cap with a plastic wand applicator attached inside.

Claim

It claims to be good for dry, oily, combination, normal skin types, and all ethnicities. It says that it will help with eye dullness and puffiness by repairing, fortifying, and hydrating the eye area for a more awake look.

Application

It says to apply it morning and night with the wand applicator. It says to use the wand to massage it under the eyes, then to finish by patting into the skin with your ring finger until absorbed.

It is a good consistency, not runny but light, and it doesn't seem to have a scent at all.

I used it mostly just in the evening using the wand to put some product under each eye. Then I just patted it all around my eyes and concentrated on the outer corner/crow's feet area of my eyes. I didn't follow the directions precisely, but it seems to work just fine for me.

The Verdict

I find it to absorb pretty well. The next day when I wash my face, I don't have that slimy feeling on my eyes like I do with other eye products that feel like they just sit on top of my skin.

I felt that the morning after my very first application, my eyes looked refreshed and hydrated. I was hooked!

I have now been using this for about 2 months and I must say . . . I STILL LOVE IT! It seems to have dramatically reduced my fine lines and crows feet. I also feel the skin right underneath my eyes has tightened. I was also dealing with dry/flaky skin under my eyes that was only noticeable when I had makeup on, that is now a thing of the past. It doesn't burn or sting my eyes and it doesn't make my vision blurry like some creams do.

I am still able to use the wand to get the product out. In reviews, a top complaint was that the wand doesn't reach the bottom, making it hard to get all the product out when it starts to run low. When I run low (which I haven't yet), I will either store the bottle on its side, upside-down, or get a makeup spatula. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I am not worried about not being able to get all the product out.

I tend to use this every night and a couple of mornings a week. So far I have had it over two months. I will update this when I finish the bottle to let you know how long it lasts.

In conclusion, this will be my go-to eye product as long as it works as well as it has the last couple of months. I would give it 5 out of 5 stars and worth every penny for me.

Update After 5 Months of Use

I have just used up the entire jar. It lasted me 5 months of using almost every evening and sometimes during the day. When it got to low for the wand to reach, I took the piece (I can't remember if it was rubber or plastic) out of the jar so I could get a makeup spatula to fit. I used the spatula for about the last month or so. There was a lot of product left when the wand stopped doing a good job.

The makeup spatula pays for itself because the $5.00 I spent on it was easily in the bottom and sides of the jar. That was not a problem for me. I think everyone should own one. This product made it a necessity for me to finally purchase one.

I still love the product, but now that the warmer months are here and I spend a lot of time in the water, under my eyes have gotten a little dry again. I may need to occasionally beef this up with another eye cream on top from time to time. But I still love this product. My crow's feet are so much better than they were. It's a great product to wear alone or with another cream sometimes. I will be buying another jar.
