It'll be my birthday months from now and I am turning 33...yes, you've read that right..33! It's not I don't want to get old...it's inevitable. But if only I could look younger as I grow older, that would be great! Who wouldn't want that, anyway!? Besides, it's possible and I know someone who's like that...getting younger looking as the years go by. She calls it a curse, of course she's kidding. To be like that isn't really a curse, but a gift!
So when I was asked by our friends from Estee Lauder if I want to take part in the "Look Younger on Your Next Birthday" challenge...I immediately said yes! Estee Lauder has been a part of my skincare regimen for months now (I'm using their Cyberwhite serum & sunblock) so I know I'll be in good hands. The challenge is to use their most famous product, the Advanced Night Repair, for 4 weeks to prove that after 30 years, it is still the first and the best anti-aging product in the market.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
It's been 30 years since this iconic "little brown bottle" with a dropper made it to the market. The packaging was made that way to reinforce the product's serious skin care sentiment. And though it doesn't look "modern" like the other beauty products available of today, women around the world continue to love this product as it helps them stop the hands of time.
I love how it instantly gives me brighter skin as it calms the redness on my face. The serum is easily absorbed and I wake up in the morning with brighter, tight (but not dry) feeling on my face. No wonder why many women around the world has been using this for years. It was also said that approximately 7 bottles of this magical serum is being sold every minute. WHOA!
Now, I really want to give myself a good kick since this product is not really new to me at all. Actually, I got myself the ANR eye cream some time ago and I got sample bottles of this but never really got to use it. I dunno, maybe it's because new stuff always come out and I'm always eager to check them out rather than take my chance on stuff that has been tested and raved by many.
As part of the challenge, I'll be documenting my progress as I continue to use this product as part of my skincare regimen. I'd still be using my Obagi toner at night, followed by this then moisturizer. For moisturizer, I alternate between Clinique DDM and Clinique Youth Surge night cream. For my day regimen, I still use Obagi toner, followed by Obagi Exfoderm then sunblock.
I promise to use ANR religiously for the succeeding weeks (I'm supposed to use it for 4 wks but I was breaking out when I got back from my vacation so I gave my skin a rest first) and will post my progress here. Let's all see if I will really look younger for my next birthday :)
But it doesn't end there, my dearies...our friends from Estee Lauder is giving away ONE full-sized bottle of ANR to ONE of my readers.

Now, remember that someone who has the "gift" of looking younger as the years go by? Here she is...
no other than my Mom
(Me - my sister, Sam - Mom)
I can't mention her age because she might kill me for that but I'm turning 33 this year, so go figure :) Maybe I should also include guessing my mom's age in the contest? LOL!
She's an avid user of ANR and she loves how it gives her supple, glowing skin all these years. So yes, I want to look as great as her when I reach that age...and maybe you would love that too!
Join the contest now and let's look younger on our next birthday, shall we!?
