Estée Lauder is famous for their Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex serum and I have no idea why they took such a long time to bring out a mask version of it. They just started expanding the line, and I'm frankly quite curious to see where it will lead to :). Regardless, I'm here with Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask as I have been using it more often as the weather has got warmer in WA.
The serum part of Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask smells quite plain as it doesn't have any particular recognisable scent. Having said that, the foil of the sheet mask does smell of chemical and factory somewhat when I open the package and also when placing onto my skin. The smell isn't overpowering, but it sadly irritates my eyes. I like the scent of the serum, but not the foil part.

The foil sheet mask by itself fits surprisingly well and doesn't move around easily, although the look of it isn't that attractive to me. Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask has fast-absorbing liquidy gel serum without giving any overwhelming alcohol feel to skin. The smooth finish that you get after taking the mask off reminds me strongly of a make-up primer, which is the main reason why Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask has been one of few sheet masks that I don't mind using even during daytime.
It doesn't feel heavy or sticky at all and I personally find the serum of the mask very layerable. I really love its buildability as I don't like to waste the expensive mask, so I always layer more on top after taking the sheet mask off. That being said, the level of hydration that you get is very limited as it doesn't seem to equate more layering = more hydration for Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask. Although it leaves skin glowing and moderately hydrated, it isn't as deeply hydrating as other hydrating masks from luxury skincare competitors.
Nevertheless, this is expected as the finish is compromised with its texture. Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask blends and works well with any products that you put on next without peeling off, which is why I also enjoy using it under my make-up for an evening out. Although I haven't experienced a major transformation in my skin such as lifting and firming, I have noticed a smooth texture and faster regeneration in my skin. Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask is certainly a great complement to any other anti-aging skincare routine that you are on throughout the year.
