If the frosty wind chills doesn’t remind me every single day that we’ve still got a lot of winter ahead of us, the new discovery of dry skin on my hands for the first time ever certainly does. I’ve been fortunate up until now not to have endured the red, dry skin on my hands that many people not only suffer with in the winter, but for some year-round. It can hurt! Now more than ever I’m acutely aware of how important good skin care is, for my whole body.
(Very) thankfully, I’ve been sent several items from the PREVAGE Skincare and Elizabeth Arden Skincare product lines this winter, and I’ve been diligent about using them, carefully reading each product packaging insert to ensure I’m applying them in the correct order, at the correct time! Yes, I am most definitely a student of good skincare this winter – I intend to get an A!
In an earlier post, I shared how I’m using Elizabeth Arden SUPERSTART Skin Renewal Booster, followed by PREVAGE Anti-Aging Daily Serum as my first one-two steps every morning. Other PREVAGE products I’ve introduced into my daily routine include:
PREVAGE Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Eye Serum ($155) – This product combines Elizabeth Arden’s exclusive Idebenone technology, the single most powerful antioxidant, with a blend of Arazine and Thiotaine. I know, what exactly are those, I wondered? It turns out, Arazine soothes skin and helps to reduce the signs of aging caused by inflammation. Thiotaine is another effective antioxidant that complements idebenone in protecting skin from free radical damage due to environmental assaults, allowing Idebenone to concentrate on repairing the look of signs of aging.
PREVAGE Anti-Aging Decollete Firm & Repair Cream ($138) – This is an area that I’ve previously paid very little attention to, and only started to notice it when the lines formed at the top of my chest, and neck. Gah! This luxurious formula with advanced Idebenone technology plus a protein restoring complex helps correct and protect the appearance of dry, delicate, vulnerable skin in the neck and decollete. The product has been formulated to instantly tighten, tone and intensely nourish with moisture.
PREVAGE Anti-Aging Treatment Boosting Cleanser ($59) – The very first step every day in the shower, this is an anti-aging treatment cleanser that provides a multi-dimensional deep cleansing experience while helping to enhance the efficacy of the PREVAGE skincare regimen. Three levels of cleansing power combines with Idebenone technology to receive maximum anti-aging benefits.
I also received some gorgeous products from the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skincare line (truly, I have zero excuse not to positively glow with radiance this winter!) Check this out:
My favorite new lip product – Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Lip Repair Balm ($29) – delivers intense, long-lasting moisture that immediately soothes lips. This rich formula also helps strengthen lip’s delicate moisture barrier, leaving lips healthier-looking and more beautiful than ever. Packaged in a portable jar with a twist off lid, Eight Hour® Cream Intensive Lip Repair Balm imparts lips with subtle sheen and a refreshing eucalyptus-based fragrance.
Other wonderful new Elizabeth Arden products in my skincare regimen this winter include Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All-Over Miracle Oil ($36), a potent blend of moisturizing ingredients, including Tsubaki Oil, combine to deliver intensive all-over moisture for face, body, and hair. I like that it’s a spray bottle, so I can quickly apply it to my arms and legs, like I did just this morning before getting the kids up for school. The scent is a nice change from the usual fruity-lotion scents I tend to favor. It’s woody, rich, and I love it. And, The Original! Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant ($29) is exactly what my red, dry, hands have been yearning for this winter.
Check out this unique story about the original Elizabeth Arden product: Created in 1930 by Elizabeth Arden to soothe skin, Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant became an instant and overwhelming success. What made it so effective is a combination of petrolatum, a skin-soothing beta-hydroxy in one of its first cosmetic uses, and vitamin E. The apricot coloured balm was so beneficial to her clients, Miss Arden used it to soothe her famous thoroughbred horses’ legs. Even its name came about thanks to a remarkable performance – a loyal client used it to treat her child’s skinned knee and “eight hours later” the skin looked all better.”
Knowing how beneficial these products have been to me, I wanted to see if my friends at Elizabeth Arden could share some additional products in a reader giveaway and they said yes!
