Having always loved Elizabeth Arden for their Cult Classics I was delighted to have the opportunity to trial one of their most sought after items; Prevage® Face Advanced Anti-aging Daily Serum. This powerful yet gentle serum features idebenone a powerful antioxidant that works to prevent visible signs of ageing. The formula has a soft peachy color and is very thin liquid serum. Its formula delivers a blend of environmental defenders that work to protect skin from free radical damage. This serum addresses skincare concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and discolorations, which will appear reduced over a very short period of time. Redness and minor scars and existing sun damage are minimized while it leaves skin looking firmer with added radiance. Results will be noticed around week four and should become more aparent at around eight weeks of continued use.
The serum has very soft, light scent that fades very quickly once applied. When gently massaged into the skin, the product becomes completely invisible. The skin is left with a soft sheen and immediately looks more moisturized and hydrated. The hydration seems to last all day, and this has continued over the past eight weeks of my usage. Over the past eight weeks, Prevage® Face Advanced Anti-aging Daily Serum has completely improved the texture and tone of my skin immensely–marks from previous blemishes have faded, my pores are noticeably smaller and tighter and my skin has a great overall clear even tone. The hydration levels in my skin are totally balanced which is amazing due to the time of the year; as winter is setting in. It is essential to continue your weekly exfoliation as this will help your serum penetrate to the fresh layers of skin providing better results. Apply two pumps once to twice daily for best results.
