Estée Lauder ANR II Eye Cream Review
Price: HKD378 (Sasa) | HKD480 (RRP)
Where do I begin with my recent discovery with the ANR II Eye Cream (Gel-Cream)…
Fast forward to my recent Estée Lauder haul, and I got a small sample of the eye cream; once I put it on, I was hooked. I had to get the gel-cream and pair that with the eye serum; it has made my undereye concealer stays put well and my dry lines smoothed out and softened.
I have to note here that officially, the ANR II Eye Serum and the ANR II Eye Cream are not meant to be layered; they are alternative textures for people who have different preferences. However, I have noticed that if I were to use the Eye Cream on its own, it is not hydrating or moisturizing enough for my eyes; however, when I layer it on top of the Eye Serum, I feel like I’ve sealed in the moisture and prepped it well for my undereye concealer. In addition, both the ANR II Eye Serum and Eye Cream are silicone-based, which provides that bit of slip and smoothness; if you’re allergic to silicones you’ll have to be careful here.
In addition, both the Eye Serum and the Eye Cream have a soothing feel on the skin but the serum has less ingredients and also no caffeine to drain water from the skin; if you have puffy eyes and bags and you’re not overly concerned with dry skin or fine lines, you might want to go for the gel-creme instead of the serum.
All in all, I personally prefer layering the Eye Serum and the Eye Cream because I like how I’m able to seal in the moisture with two products from a line that I know I would not be allergic to, as well as the flexibility of using a product that leaves no residue where I can layer another rich eye cream (i.e. the Estée Lauder Global Anti-Aging Eye Balm that I’ve been eyeing for a while now <3) over it for even more moisturization.
