Elizabeth Arden Newest Prevage Anti-Aging Serum Review
NEW PREVAGE® ANTI-AGING + INTENSIVE REPAIR DAILY SERUM
Innovative New Formula Fights Environmental Signs of Aging Caused by Chronic Inflammation
Scientists have proven that exposure to smoke, pollution and other irritants accelerate skin aging twice as fast*. These types of environmental threats produce free radicals that cause chronic inflammation at skin’s cellular level. The result is an increased appearance of wrinkles and age spots and a breakdown of collagen and elastin. To rejuvenate the appearance of inflamed skin, both instantly and over time, Elizabeth Arden introduces PREVAGE® Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum. Developed in partnership with bio-scientists and leading dermatologists, this innovative formula leverages the brand’s 100 years of product innovation, scientific research and face-to-face spa experience.
New PREVAGE Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum blends Idebenone, a powerful antioxidant, with our exclusive new ingredient – AFC (n-acetyl-s-farnsylcysteine). By protecting skin from oxidative stress, Idebenone not only shields skin from environmental effects, it also helps to support the skin’s natural repair process and restore a youthful appearance. AFC, an exclusive new molecule, has antioxidant properties that helps protect against free radicals, soothe skin and reduce signs of aging caused by chronic inflammation. Elizabeth Arden Research & Development has discovered that the combination of Idebenone with AFC aids or helps neutralize 95% of environmental free radicals and minimizes the signs of aging caused by cellular inflammation, the primary cause of signs of aging†.
As part of taking this science to the next level, Prevage® scientists have also advanced the methodology to measure the efficacy of Idebenone, AFC and Thiotaine. Known as Environmental Protection FactorTM (EPF®)‡, this series of tests has now been expanded to not just include antioxidant efficacy but also signs of aging caused by chronic inflammation. The portfolio of tests has grown from five to nine and the resulting scale has increased to 180. When tested under this rigorous methodology, the Idebenone, Thiotaine and AFC blend in PREVAGE® Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum scored 174, demonstrating a stronger efficacy than the other common antioxidants tested including Alpha Lipoic Acid, Kinetin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Coenzyme Q10, Green Tea and Ferulic Acid. In fact, 67% of women preferred PREVAGE Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum vs. the leading prestige serums.§

|The Good||1) Doesn’t aggravate my acne condition. In fact, it somehow helped with my acne scarring issue! Minor acne scars were completely gone within a week!2) Lives up to its claim of aiding the repair the skin as my skin never became flaky after even after using potent acne treatment products.3) Makes my skin glow! Radiance! I don’t have flawless skin, but I’m happy to say that I am blessed with a glowy complexion! Even more so with this product!4) Optical diffusers included in this product means that it’ll work very well as a morning serum before putting on lightweight, dewy foundations. The photos that I’ve taken after using this serum always surprise me! I never thought that my skin could look that good on camera!5) Quickly absorbed into the skin!
6) A little goes a long way!
|The Bad||1) The price. I have to be very honest and say that as a full-time student, I’d a mini heart attack when I saw the price in the press release. Still, a full sized bottle is going to last quite a while, so if I plan to purchase it, I’ll just have to discipline myself to manage my savings and budget well.|
|Overall Rating||4.5 out of 5|
|Will I repurchase this?||If I had the budget to do so, then yes!I love the fact that this product combines both skincare and subtle cosmetic enhancements! This product has also been highly raved among various beauty bloggers worldwide! It’s great to have around in my skincare stash when I’m in a hurry and have to look camera-ready under 15minutes. I’m still using this serum twice daily as directed, and I’m enjoying the radiance that this product adds to my skin. I also appreciate the anti-aging aspect of this product as I’m already starting to use anti-aging products to preserve the firmness, radiance and clarity of my skin. The use of acne products does deteriorate my skin quite a bit and I’m all for using products that help to fight cellular inflammation and combat against fine lines. Skincare is a very important aspect of taking care of one’s face because it’ll take YEARS off on how you look! I believe that anyone of any age can use this product despite the common belief that such products are catered more towards the matured crowd. I have started using anti-aging products since I was 17 years old and looking back, I can confidently say that I look younger now than back then! Sounds unbelievable, but it’s true.
With the umpteen benefits of this product, I highly recommend this product to anyone who’s willing to invest in a quality repair serum!
