Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrate: Final review and winner announcement

It's been a month since I started using the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrate. And how was it? Amazing, really. It helped my skin get that nice glow and smoothness, feats that few other products can do consistently. Unfortunately, I had breakouts in between from trying out new products, so I feel that the ANR hasn't given me its best shot yet. 

Here are my pics and weekly reviews! Check them out to compare.

Part 1 - Dull skin, lots of blemishes

Part 2 - check out that hugh pimple on my cheek! Ugh!

Part 3 - clearing up

And this is me, today. :) The blemishes have certainly lightened and my skin is much more even. You can spot a couple of new blemishes here and there - unfortunately - but overall my skin is doing better since I started using the ANR. I will definitely continue using it after this challenge.

Okay! Now for the fun part. The winner of the full-sized Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrate is Lor Barut. She suffers from a serious acne problem, but through the years she has proactively tried to repair it by going to dermatologists. I like her entry because she painstakingly detailed her battles with acne in her entry, with photos to boot! For that, I would like to give her her own bottle of ANR ot hopefully speed up the recovery process.

Believe me, choosing the winner was quite difficult and I wished I had more bottles of ANR to give out. :( The entries were very educational and, well, honest, that I can't help wondering why so many girls are still suffering from acne. I suddenly had an idea. What if...we had an acne workshop? Perhaps I can bring in a dermatologist and have him answer all your questions, from prevention to cure.

It's just an idea though. Let me know if this is something you'd go to.

Too ugly to have a beauty blog?
