Advanced night repair

Posted in skincare with tags , , on September 7, 2009 by LPB

I had been using this brown bottle miracle intermittently since its launch in the 80’s, it was the ultimate potion on my mother’s dressing table. I started using this wonderful serum in my teens and had since been a fans of this repairing serum; to me, it’s a skin insurance, to preserve the youth and radiance of my skin.

It’s was a breakthrough concept then to guard skin against environmental assaults such as free radicals and i believe my skin was saved by the usage of this potion from young age. This was the serum, before the launch of all those serums.

It was a pioneer in skin repairing and still light years ahead of its competitors.

I firmly  believe this is the one formula beautiful skin can’t live without.

The new advanced night repair is a comprehensive, high-performance anti-aging serum-inspired by groundbreaking DNA research, brings a dramatic reduction in the visible signs of aging to skin.

It helps to continuously repair the appearance of past damage, prevent future damage and deliver high levels of hydration.

VISIBLE RESULTS, PROVEN SUCCESS.

Even the best can get better. This advanced formula-with 20 patents worldwide-includes all the benefits you love about the original, plus more to help your skin repair itself like never before:

Exclusive Chronolux™ Technology

Repairs the appearance of past damage.

Addresses damaging effects before they become permanent.

You’ll see a visible improvement in the signs of aging-specifically lines, uneven skintone and immediate hydration.

Enhanced Environmental Repair

Neutralizes up to 90%* of environmentally generated free radicals before they can affect skin’s appearance.

That’s key, because environmental assaults such as UV, smoke, pollution and even emotional stress are the #1 cause of premature signs of aging.

The advanced technology in ANR repairs the appearance of damage caused by every major environmental assault.

Continuous Hydration

Creates the optimal environment for repair with nature’s long-proven moisture magnet Hyaluronic Acid.

Clinical tests prove skin’s levels of moisturization increase dramatically.

Soothes daily irritation and builds a rich anti-oxidant reserve to help replenish skin’s natural protectants.

Think of it as “insurance” for younger, healthier-looking skin, today and tomorrow.

Regardless of the application advise, i am using this lovely serum twice a day,underneath my moisturizer/sunscreen to safeguard my skin. Its texture is runnier than the previous generation but the hydrating capability is superb.

This should be the serum on the dressing table of everyone that is concern about achieving beautiful, youthful skin!
