When I speak to my non-beauty blogging friends around my age (late twenties / early thirties) about skincare, they always look at me as if I am crazy for using anti-aging skincare products. They think I am “too young” – like hello? I’ve been using anti-aging products since my early twenties! How else can I get away with looking like I’m younger than my actual age?!! Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum is one the newest anti-aging power packed serums to hit the beauty market. I was given the privilege to trial this for review and better still, there’s one to giveaway to one lucky Aussie reader (more on that later).
The first thing you will notice about Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum is the sexy chic uber-cool metallic packaging complete with a chrome canister – it is definitely not “grandma” packaging! The product is dispensed from a dropper with a premeasured amount. As for the key ingredients in Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum, it has powerful antioxidants such as idebenone ester and thiotaine – which aids in cellular repair – and it also contains mica and silica pigments which is evident when you see the serum – it has an iridescent finish and a smooth texture.
- Awesome packaging – looks cool and very hygienic (but attracts dust and fingerprints like no tomorrow!)
- Lovely texture which sinks in very quickly into my normal / dry skin
- I noticed a reduced appearance of pore size after 3 weeks of daily usage – YES!
- Stabilisation of existing fine lines
- Skin felt slightly firmer – or maybe it’s because I lost weight? 😛
- Not noticeable scent
- Not hydrating enough for my dry skin so I did have some dry patches especially around nose and cheeks
- Hefty price tag of $250 – OUCH!
I would recommend this product for (rich) ladies who are looking for the extra step in their skincare routine to help combat existing little fine lines and prevent new ones from forming and wants an overall radiant effect. It is also a potential gift for the upcoming Mother’s Day in a few weeks time! Don’t worry, I’m putting together a gift guide so there’s plenty of suggestions coming your way 🙂
Meanwhile, if your skincare budget can’t stretch that far or you want to win this fantastic product for your Mum, then you have to enter the giveaway…
