I've been using this product since I was nineteen, which believe me wasn't yesterday! I have a particulary sensitive skin, with a tendancy to break out all over in blotches, so when I find something that agrees with me I stick with it. After reading articles and talking with friends I decided that maybe they were right that the mature skin needed something a little bit stronger ,shall we say. I popped along to the nearest EA counter and asked for advice imagine my surprise and pleasure when the consultant told me that there was no need to change my moisturiser until I reached around 45. I turned 52 last month and thought the Scottish weather had taken it's toll, well done Visible Difference! I guess I'll just have to keep using you now until my skin catches up with my body!
Being well into the winter season by now we're all well aware of the damage the cold air can cause to our skin. I tend to come out in a rosy cheeked glow (quite attractive), a few dry patches (not quite so attractive), and my nose turns a vibrant shade of red in its bid to steal Rudolph's crown (positively repulsive!). So my solution to this is to switch to a heavier moisturiser and, on rifling through my make-up drawer I came across Elizabeth Arden's Visible Difference Moisturizing Cream. I bought this on holiday in the summer but found it much to heavy to use in the summer and so, like many others before it, it was cast aside to the drawer and was forgotten about... until now that is! It comes in a very classy looking heavy glass pot containing 70g of cream. On twisting off the lid, you can faintly smell the light fragrance- very subtle but really clean and refreshing. The actual consistency of the cream is quite thick but it is absorbed by the skin really easily and you only need the tiniest dab to cover your entire face. The cream is very rich and I prefer to use it in the evenings as it can leave your skin looking slightly shiny just after you've used it, but the next day your skin looks fabulous! Elizabeth Arden claim that this will refine, smoothen and moisturise your skin, creating a 'visible difference'. To be perfectly honest, I couldn't claim that there was a huge difference (though my flaky rudolph nose has gone), but my skin certainly does look a lot healthier and more refined than before. As this cream is so rich, I wouldn't recommend it for people with oily skin, but for dry skin it's great! It has been dermatologically tested so no worries for me on that front! So, (as happens so often with my ops) now for the catch. I paid about £25 (whoah, storming ahead into my overdraft!) for my 70g pot but it is normally priced at abot £35, which in my opinion should give you something reall
y special. I don't really object to paying that much for something which really is worth it but I've used moisturisers which cost less than half the price of this which work just as well. The other problem I have with this is that it's notwidely available- you won't find this down your local Boots! Try posh deprtment stores like House of Fraser, or if you're jetting off on holiday, look in duty free (where I got mine at brgain price- spot the stingy student!) While I've got a pot of this I'm more than happy to use it, but when I run out (which by my scientific calculations should be in about a years time as it's lasting amazingly!), I don't think I'll be replacing it!
The range of the product is general good but just it has the problem with this one. I don't know is that because I brought it from the catalogue or because of my skin. After I did use for 3 days, my skin is allegic from it, at the first I thought because of the weather so I did stop to use it and continue to use it again. But I try this up to 3 times, and it doesn't help. My skin did have the redness comes up. But generally I suggest all the people should buy their products from the department store. The quailty of the product will definie better than buy it from the catalogue! Other product from this range is FINE!
