My Perfect Duo: Estée Lauder Micro Essence and Advanced Night Repair

Time has been flying by, and in just two months time, I am going to be no longer a single woman, but will be leaving my life as a singleton behind me, and cleaving to the most important man in my life, my husband.

Now that we’re in the final lap of wedding preparation, I have never more fully appreciated what it means to be half of a duo, but that’s what YZ and I are, two individual people who have come together to be joined as one. How did we even end up together? Let me share with you my modest love story in this video below.

I’ve submitted this video for a special contest right here, so please vote for me, if you like my love story! ^.^

The past seven years has been an amazing journey of growth and exploration together, and even til today, it never fails to amaze me how it seems that this man is just meant for me. We first discovered this synergy in our interaction: I was the reserved one, but he was the one to take the initiative, and allowed me to open up to him and to cast aside all of my insecurities and fears of being in a relationship. 

Music is something that is so close to my heart, and it is just incredible how we discovered that each other’s voices melded together so well in song, and I can say with conviction that I know that there will never be another voice that complements mine so well, and vice versa. Some people call us “the singing couple”, hahaha. I can’t imagine my life now without a partner that loves singing together with me! For the two of us, singing together is a joy and pleasure we share with no one else. It’s like making magic out of two separate ingredients, combining to create a greater whole. 

People say that we look alike too!

We might not be perfect individuals, but together, we’re like the Perfect Duo.

I’ve been trying to be as religious as I can about keeping my skin healthy in preparation for our big day, and I’m so glad to have discovered the Perfect Duo that’s been doing wonders for me!

Introducing the Perfect Duo: Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair and Micro Essence!

I’ve always been a huge fan of Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair because it is one of the best repair serums that I’ve used, and it’s a must-have, especially in my travel kit, because it keeps my skin healthy and youthful even in dry foreign climates that tend to wreck havoc on my skin.

Now, I’ve discovered yet another star product that perfectly complements the Advanced Night Repair for faster and better synergistic repair, and that’s the Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion!

I thought that the Advanced Night Repair was fantastic on its own, but when used in conjunction with the Micro Essence, the results are even better! These two complementary formulas work together to deliver moisture and exceptional results to repair our skin, penetrating the skin faster and deeper and leading to increased moisture and faster moisture barrier recovery than using either one alone.


Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion is actually a high-performance “essence-in-lotion” that can go deeper to repair and strength skin, to repair micro damages before it turns into future skin problems. It transforms skin layer by layer from within that can easily visualise the beautiful skin as strengthened/hydrated/translucent.

It helps to preempt skin vulnerability through a 3-pronged Micro Repair power to repair, rejuvenate and strengthen.


Micro Essence is developed, tested and proven for Asian skin to give you a youthful, angelic glow!


How to use Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion:  It should be applied as the first step right after cleansing every morning and evening! Application can be done with a cotton pad, or with your hands. I personally prefer using my hands because I find that there’s less product wastage and better absorption!

With a cotton pad: Gently glide saturated cotton pad over face, from the center out. Start at chin and move upwards to cheeks and forehead. Do not apply pressure during application.

With your hands: Pour 5 or 6 drops of Micro Essence in hand and rub hands together. Gently press the Micro Essence into skin from the center out. Start at chin and move upwards to cheeks and forehead.Rub hands together to warm, and then gently wrap face using warm hands to complete application.


Texture-wise, Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion is watery and light-weight, which I love! It gets absorbed quickly into my skin and leaves my skin feeling supple, hydrated and soothed. For my combination/dry skin, it does wonders!

Of course, I follow up with my favourite Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair at night, and together, the duo is just amazing!



I love how Advanced Night Repair feels on my skin too! The texture’s slightly viscous, but feels extremely comfortable on the skin and absorbs well. My skin always feels plump and hydrated after application.

The combination of these two products really help so much to keep my skin youthful and rejuvenated!

Right after touch-down at Bilbao airport when I arrived in Spain. I even used Micro Essence and Advanced Night Repair on the plane, and I swear it helped so much to keep my skin soothed and moisturised even through fourteen hours of flight time!

Love this Perfect Duo!

And I can’t wait for the big day to finally arrive! I’m so looking forward to life together with my other half, creating a lifetime of happiness as a duo. One song, one voice.
