As promised, I wanted to bring you the latest skincare news as quickly as I can test them out, and it was a complete no-brainer for me when I received the press pack for Estee Lauder’s latest sheet mask. This is a brand that I’ve never encountered any problems with #truestory, and there’s a good reason Advanced Night Repair still remains a widely loved cult classic even after more than 30 years in the market. And now, with the new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Powerfoil Mask, the ANR family is well on its way to legendary status!
The skin is at its optimal regenerative mode at night whilst we are asleep, which is why power-packed night creams and sleeping masks work so well. But Estee Lauder has not only given us yet another night-time sheet mask, the Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Powerfoil Mask is the first ever “dual-matrix” foil-backed sheet mask in the world to enhance the skin’s absorption of the concentrated treatment.
Each mask consists of 2 separate pieces for the top and bottom halves of the face. The inner layer of each mask contains nearly half a bottle’s worth of Advanced Night Repair’s key ingredient ChronoluxCB that boosts skin’s natural repair mechanism. The outside foil layer creates a protective cocoon around the face, sealing the treatment and driving it into the skin. This PowerFoil technology is supposed to enhance penetration by 25x faster than traditional cotton sheet mask, and indeed my skin does not feel dripping wet after I remove the mask but instead the product is well absorbed.
In addition to the proven cocktail of ingredients in the Advanced Night Repair serum, the Concentrated Recovery Powerfoil Mask contains a double dose of Hyaluronic Acid, which explains the very instantly plumped up look of my skin. And even by the next morning, my skin still looks hydrated and smooth!
The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Powerfoil Mask contains a blend of powerful anti-irritants:
To be honest, when I first applied this on my face, it felt a little odd as the foil backing made the mask thicker than the other cotton or biocellulose masks that I’ve gotten used to, and it does not adhere completely to every curve of my face. Having said that, the foil backing itself is fairly soft, and does not feel uncomfortable on my skin. Most importantly, the effects are immediately visible. My skin has been on a roller coaster lately, and feeling very delicate and easily irritated. After just 1 session with this Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Powerfoil Mask, my skin felt soothed, much more hydrated, and renewed! I had some red patches on my cheek that went away, and some bumpiness that were signs of follicle irritation that also lessened by the next morning.
The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Powerfoil Mask is designed to be used once a week, in lieu of the nightly Advanced Night Repair serum, for a powerful boost to the skin. It is priced at SGD120 for 4 pieces and SGD216 for 8, and will be out at Estee Lauder Boutique at Ion and counters from 15 January 2016!
