Weeks ago Elizabeth Arden posted on their Instagram looking for people to apply to take part in their beauty panel. I never expected to hear any more about it but a couple of weeks later they contacted me on Instagram and told me them would send me two products to review. Free beauty products? Yes please!!!
I have been trying a few of their products the last while so I was really excited to try some others. I mean I spent €220 on a serum for crying out loud so of course I knew liked the brand. (I will do another blog post when I have tested them out a bit more). I was asked to try their Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum and their Moisturizing Lipstick in the shade 02 Red Door Red
When I purchased their Prevage Serum a few weeks ago I received a sample of their Ceramide Capsules so I already knew I really liked them. I have been using them every 2/3 days at night under my night cream and can honestly say that my skin has seriously improved! I have had adult acne for a few years and for the first time in a very long time my skin is clearing up nicely and has a youthful plumpness that I love! Now I have also been trying a couple of other new products and I think this helped in conjunction with them so I can’t give EA all of the credit but these capsules get two thumbs up from me and I will definitely continue to use them!
Some people may have noticed that I love a red lip for a night out. I think there is nothing more fabulous than the perfect red lip whether I am going dressy casual or full on glam so I was so excited to try their Moisturizing Lipstick. Usually I go for long wear lipsticks but for a colour this fabulous I would make an exception! I don’t know how moisturizing it is but it definitely didn’t dehydrate my lips like some other lipsticks have. It has good pigmentation and feels lovely and creamy. I also absolutely love the packaging, the gold tube is sturdy and has some weight to it and the door design is very cute. It is the perfect red for Christmas (who am I kidding its perfect year round) and I will definitely enjoy popping this on for many a night during the festive season!
All in all I really liked both products, I will probably purchase the capsules and I will enjoy testing out the red lipstick a bit more before I would commit to repurchasing but I definitely wouldn’t rule it out either!
Have you tried either of these products? Do you agree with my review? Have you tried any other Elizabeth Arden products that you would recommend?
