Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum is one of their bestselling serums the brand is known for. I purchased the Superstart Booster serum giftset over Christmas last year and it came with a trial size of the serum. I then also got the Booster gift set as a Christmas present so I had two trial sizes to play with. I was excited because the research and reviews of the serum sound good so it was definitely something I was looking forward to.
Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum says Pure. Potent. Precise. Our ceramide serum has triple the anti-aging power for visibly firmer, smoother, healthy-looking skin.
The capsules come in 30, 60 or 90 tubs.
The trial size came with 7 capsules each so I had 14 in total so a 2 week supply using one each night. I decided break it up to see if there were any benefits, I used the 1st seven took a break then the other seven. It has no noticeable scent to me and I didn’t experience any irritation.
You can twist or cut the capsule to break them open and one capsule is enough for face and neck. The oil feels silky smooth and velvety on the skin. I use the leftovers on my hands or chest. I use it as the last step in my routine, layered over serums and creams.
With my little experiment, I’m afraid I didn’t notice any HUGE improvements to my skin. The texture of the serum is beautiful and it goes on well onto the skin, it doesn’t sink into the skin straight away but it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. I notice the next morning, my skin feels really soft and hydrated but that’s about it. The serum has a lot of claims but the one I really felt was soft and hydrated skin the next day.
Ever since I used the Estee Lauder Ampoules I have been very interested in trying these targeted capsules/ampoule type products. I really really REALLY wanted to like this because I thought I would get very similar results to the Estee Lauder ampoules. I did not. The Elizabeth Arden feels nice on the skin and leaves my skin soft the next morning but I don’t need a £39 capsule for that. I can use a lot of other products for that. I wanted to experience more of their claims but I didn’t. Maybe I should have used it for 14 days straight or perhaps I needed more of it? who knows
Based on this experience I’m not interested in purchasing the full size product. I think Beauty Pie’s Ceramide capsules may be a dupe for these, I will be getting those to try out to see.
Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum is £39 for 30 capsules on Boots
