I recently tried a sample of the reformulated Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum and I loved it. I stretched out one sample sachet to about five uses (good job, me! haha) but I knew I was not going to buy the full-size because it costs 5,300.00 Php. No, I did not accidentally add one more zero to that figure. It really will set you back 5k!
Imagine my delight then (that is a funny phrase–“imagine my delight” hmm) when I saw on Khristine’s instagram that Human Heart Nature would be coming out with their own Overnight Elixir. 100% Natural, with no harmful chemicals, and Philippine-made pa! I checked HHN stalls the next day, but they can take some time to deliver stock, so I just ordered it off of the website instead !It arrived a couple of days ago in this box. Wanna see the bottle? I know you do! ;)
Ta-daaaa! Isn’t it beautiful? It’s a deep lilac colour all over. I love the frosted glass bottle and the brushed metal twist-off dropper top. This thing looks really high-end in my opinion. I paid 995.00 Php for mine because I bought it at the introductory price (you can still get it at 995!) but it will eventually be bumped up to 1,250. Still very reasonable, I think.
This isn’t a review–more like a first-impression mixed in with a sneak peek for you guys. With skincare, you need to give a product at least a few months to see any results and I wouldn’t want to jump the gun. Also, when you’re trying something new on your face, you want to go slow. I don’t ever put something on my face until I’ve patch-tested it on my neck the first night. The night after, if there hasn’t been a bad reaction, I’ll use it on my whole neck. If all is looking good, I patch-test on my cheek. And then finally, if nothing crazy has happened, I’ll put it on my face. Even then, results and even allergies can take months to show/act up. So always be extra careful with your skicare, guys!
Aside from it coming in gorgeous packaging, I can tell you that the elixir smells really lovely. It’s a little herb-y, probably because of the blend of nine oils. Speaking of those oils, they are: rosehip, sunflower seed, passion fruit seed, soybean, avocado, vitamin E, lavender oil, elemi, and rosemary oil. It does not contain mineral oil or silicone and it is 100% chemical-free. The texture of the elixir is similar to a basic syrup (the kind you use for baking) and it’s easily absorbed but does leave a residue that needs to sit for a while. HHN recommends only evening use for this product.
So far, so good! I will keep you guys updated on this. :) Do you guys use any serums/elixirs? Does this look like one that would interest you? :)
