Elizabeth Arden’s Prevage Skincare Line Review

Does Prevage Deserve a Spot on Your Vanity? Elizabeth Arden Prevage Review

Are you an Elizabeth Arden fan but haven’t tried the Prevage products yet?

Are you looking for a new product line because your old one isn’t working for you?

If so, this is the article for you. We’re going to take a close look at each product in the line so you’ll know if each one lives up to its claims.

Prevage Products

Elizabeth Arden has long been a name to be reckoned with in the cosmetics industry and their latest line of anti-aging products is no exception. Available at fine department stores, the Ceramide products are some of the most popular of the higher-end wrinkle-reducing lines and the Prevage products have found a permanent home on the vanities of millions of women.

Without further ado, let’s see if the loyalty is deserved, or just hype.


  1. Prevage Day Intensive Anti-Aging Moisture Cream SPF 30

    Elizabeth Arden’s Claim

    Smooths dry skin, moisturizes, protects skin from sun damage, gives skin a brighter, more even-toned appearance.

    Active Ingredients

    Idebenone is a big-hitting antioxidant cousin of CoQ10 that protects skin from environmental damage caused by free radicals. The major difference between the 2 cousins is idebenone is much more water soluble. It also softens skin by increasing hydration and reduces the look of lines and wrinkles by encouraging healthy cell growth in an atmosphere free of free radicals.

    The product also contains hyaluronic acid, one of the superstars you can find in out Top 10 Ingredients article, as well as several different moisturizers, antioxidant vitamins (tocopherol, aka vitamin E) and emollients that help keep your skin soft and smooth. Finally it has the pH balancer Ammonium Hydroxide and sunscreen.

    Pros

    • Active ingredient is actually proven to prevent and even reverse the fine lines and spots caused by environmental factors.
    • Users claim that skin definitely appears brighter
    • Since it contains hyaluronic acid, it definitely has moisturizing properties and will help plump your skin
    • Because it also has the antioxidants, you get the short-term effects of the hyaluronic acid, plus the long-term, damage reducing effects of these awesome little free radical slayers.
    • You only need a little bit. A bottle should last 60 days or so.
    • Contains sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage.

    Cons

    • It’s one of the priciest products in the series
    • Doesn’t really have much in the way of wrinkle-reducers if the antioxidants don’t work for you.

    Final word: For the cost, there may be better products out there. If, however, you just want to heal your face, add antioxidants, and are satisfied with a natural, healthy look even with a few wrinkles, then this is a great product for you.

  3. Prevage Night Anti-Aging Restorative Cream

    Elizabeth Arden’s Claim

    Restores moisture and helps fight the signs of aging caused by damaging environmental factors. Enhances skins own natural repair processes, restores skin’s natural resilience for a younger look, makes skin look restored and rested. Smooths, retextures and softens skin.

    Active Ingredients

    The night cream contains most of the same ingredients as the day cream as well as lactic acid, which is a whitening agent, and a retinoate, which is a more easily-usable form of vitamin A than retinol.

    Pros

    • Product was tested on US consumers with the following results:

      • 87 reported reduced roughness and dryness
      • 83% said Skin felt nourished all night
      • 80% believe it enriched skin with deep moisture
      • 70% reported that their skin looked revitalized

    Cons

    • Comes with a hefty pricetag
    • May not be best to use for oily skin because it’s got heavy duty moisturizers

    Final word: This is an excellent product if you’re into antioxidants and more “natural” methods of addressing how you maintain a youthful appearance. There are no hardcore synthetic age-defying ingredients in it, but there are several good antioxidants, retinoids and other proactive ingredients.

    Users also love the product and with the clinical trials, it’s a safe bet to spend your money on if you have dry to normal skin and you’re not addressing deep wrinkles.
