    Two more that are great (and a bit more reasonably priced) are Avene Eau Thermale and The Body Shop Vitamin E facial mist 🙌🏻
    Thanks for another great post! X

    Hi Camilla,

    I’m almost through a bottle of Estee Lauder ANR. I wondering if I should repurchase or try a different serum. I’m looking for anti ageing but also something that offers lots of hydration. Any advice?

      Hi Liz! ANR is the OG hydrating serum and is still considered to be one of the best anti ageing products on the market. If your skin is happy with it, then there is no need to change. However, if you’re in the mood to incorporate something new, the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel really is phenomenal. It doesn’t contain the same anti ageing ingredients as ANR though – it’s purpose is to hydrate and reduce inflammation.
