“ Brand: Elizabeth Arden / Type: Skin Care / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
i have used many E.Arden products but this one, it's singularly disappointing! smells awful. reminds me of cockroaches. imagine having to smear such an evil smelling cream on your face... who cares if it does wonders when it's making u wanna puke? and worse of all it doesn't even work wonders.... beautiful cream on your fingers... but thats about all it is. for all the amazing things it's touted to do i dont see any difference! unless u are talking abt imparting a yucky shine not radiance to my face. supposed to brighten skin up, can be used on top of makeup and/or after moisturizing, i have tried both ways but it still didn't make me appear more luminous or fresher. oh another thing it imparts are 2 lovely zits the next morning. brides-to-be, if u were tempted to try, do not! yes it's high technology formula and pretty good constituents and all, but this is hardly worth the price. with such little effect what works? try the foundation. that one is lovely. absolutely gorgeous.
I am a big fan of Elizabeth Arden products and I have been using them for years, but this is one I will not be purchasing again. I have heard a lot of good things about this, and as I love Elizabeth Arden I know they cant go wrong. So I thought I'd give it a go... I want this illuminating complexion it promises!!!! It is a moisturiser, that can be used daily. It claims to give you an illuminating, youthful complexion, evening out the skin. It certainly does not live up to its name. First of all lets talk about the packaging. Lovely slimline clear bottle. Its a great idea as you can see how much you have used and when you need to buy another bottle. The packaging is very nice, and I think that is the best thing about this product. I have been using it as a daily moisturiser hoping for it to do the job it claims. I have dry skin and it doesnt irritate it so that is good. It isnt very moisturising, so oily skins will probably benefit. It is a white cream and looks like any other moisturiser and rubs in easily and soaks up quicky. It can be used without makeup - well I dont really use makeup daily so I cant comment. However I didnt feel as if it made any major difference to my skin. But what I will say is that is does make it feel smooth and it would make a great base for makeup. It rubs in easily and it seems to make my skin feel quite matt, so where is that illuminating effect???? When I put it on first it seems to be there. But a minute later and its all sinked in and smooth. It doesnt work like a moisturiser, as is sinks in 100%. There is no illuminating, youthful skin at all. So it seems great for oily skins. However one change is that my uneven skin tone is slightly even on my cheeks. So if you do have very uneven skin then you can buy this to let it make a slight change. So perhaps its worth buying it for that, but dont expect a miracle, just a minor change. I dont like the smell, it smells very
dusty. But maybe that is just me. But once it is rubbed in you can smell it at all. It must be oil-free although it doesnt say that (well not on my box). There is nothing special about this lotion, and certainly doesnt live up to its name. Maybe as I have normal/dry skin. If you have oily skin, then it would be a great base for make-up. Other than that, there is no reason to buy it. It is also costly at about £22.00, but I got this online at that price, so I have paid less. I think it retails for about £29.00, but dont quote me on this. But if you want that illuminating look it claims to give, then I wouldnt reccomend this at all..... All I will say is...this product is just not worth that price..in face any price! as far as I'm concerned I wouldnt use a freebie.
