I'm a girl who loves beauty products, even though I haven't always been very keen on them, so I decided to start a beauty blog, where I share beauty product reviews with others and tell you about both the worst and best beauty products out there, according to me.

I'm also hoping it will make beauty and makeup more fun, even for those who are not beauty addicts already.

Review: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was less than impressed by the Estee Lauder cleanser I tried out recently, but I also mentioned that I had tried some other Estee Lauder products at the same time that I was happier with. One of those products was the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum.

And I must admit I am not a big serum user in general, so converting someone who has not really "believed" or seen the point of serums before takes one good serum, believe me!
This serum was pretty expensive, but smells nice, feels nice and absorbs quickly. It also makes my skin softer and evens out the texture really well. Even my pores look smaller and less noticeable!

I was also under the impression that I would run out of this serum really fast (I am not really sure why) but nope: it lasts for ages and you really need only very little each time you put it on. I have been using it morning and night and the results are very impressive indeed!

So this was definitely a very positive surprise for me after having been so disappointed by Estee Lauder's cleanser!

Review: Estee Lauder Verite LightLotion Cleanser

Recently I went into a random cosmetics store to buy some eye cream. I hadn't been all too happy with the eye creams I had been using recently (except the La Mer one, but La Mer is not sold where I live so I have to get it abroad or online and I needed a new cream urgently, so La Mer was out of the question) so I decided to ask a saleslady for advice. 15 minutes later... I ended up going home with 3 Estee Lauder products, a brand I was not previously familiar with and one of the products this (very nice) saleslady convinced me that I "had to try" was the Estee Lauder Verite LightLotion Cleanser.
I needed a new cleanser anyway so I gave it a go, and I liked the packaging a lot. Nice, clean, luxurious, not too similar to anything else on the market: all good!

Sadly, however, that is where the good stuff ended. You need to put a lot of this cream on in order for it to do anything and my skin does not feel clean even after I do so. Maybe it is, but it feels... dirty and like it did not do anything at all. So I always ended up using another cleanser right after.

I will go as far as saying that this may be one of the worst cleansers I've come across so far, which is pretty surprising as the other 2 Estee Lauder products I got were quite good.

(and yes, I have considered the fact that something may be wrong with the bottle I got but I guess the only way to test that would be to get another bottle and compare the two? And I really don't feel like purchasing this again so I will just assume they are all like this...)
