Wow! It’s end of the year 2012 and time really flies! I’m rapidly approaching my mid 40s next year! Oh my, I can’t believe it happens so fast!
At 40s, I’m fully aware that aging is inevitable and everyone of us will experience chronological aging which occurs over time. To prevent and delay skin aging, I load my skin with potent antioxidant skincare products. And one of my favorite anti-aging ranges is Elizabeth Arden Prevage line. Currently, I’m using the Prevage Face Advanced Anti-aging Serum and Prevage Day Ultra Protection Anti-aging Moisturizer SPF 30++, both during the day.
And recently, I got to attend a super cozy event to preview Elizabeth Arden newest and most powerful anti-aging serum, that was held at Ardent’s Cafe @ Neil Road. I was super delighted about this new launch and so far I have tested this new innovative serum for almost 3 weeks now.
Do continue reading and I will be sharing my review on it soon.
The color theme of the event was orange (to compliment the product color) and each blogger got to bring home a complimentary orange item from the display. Thanks you Elizabeth Arden!
Yes, I have picked this pair of lovely orange shoes. Nice? Thanks to Joey from Elizabeth Arden for the great recommendation!
Introducing the hero product – Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum, the latest addition to its Prevage line. This innovative new formula helps to fight environmental signs of aging caused by chronic inflammation.
We are able to control our aging!
There are 2 main factors that cause the skin to age – intrinsic (affects 20%) and extrinsic (affects 80%). Intrinsic aging (also known as chronological aging) occurs as a result of natural changes within the body that are not under our control like genetic factors. Extrinsic aging (environmental aging) is caused by external factors such as exposure to sun, smoking, unhealthy lifestyle that we can actually control.
It has proven that exposure to sun, smoke, pollution and other irritants accelerate skin aging twice as fast. These environmental signs of aging produce free radicals that cause chronic inflammation at skin’s cellular level that result an increased appearance of wrinkles, age spots and a breakdown of collagen and elastin. Skin will also turn dull, dry and rough too.
Environmental threads > free radicals > skin damage > signs of aging
Do you know sun exposure accounts for about 90% of the symptoms of premature skin aging? The effects of excessive sun exposure are implicated in the production of oxidants, also called free radicals.
Prevage Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum -
S$399 / 1.0 fl. oz.
NEW Prevage Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum is formulated with Idebenone (a powerful antioxidant) and the exclusive new ingredient – AFC (in-acetyl-s-farnsylcysteine). By protecting skin from oxidative stress, Idebenone not only shields skin from environmental effects, it also helps to support the skin’s natural repair process and restore a youthful appearance. AFC has antioxidant properties that helps protect against free radicals, soothe skin and reduce signs of aging caused by chronic inflammation.
The combination of Idebenone with AFC helps neutralize 95% of environmental free radicals and minimizes the signs of aging cause by cellular inflammation, the primary cause of signs of aging.
Test Results :
A series of tests (Environmental Protection Factor™) were done on the efficacy of Idebenone, AFC and Thiotaine. These 3 ingredients, blend in Prevage Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum that scored at 174, demonstrate a stronger efficacy than the other common antioxidants tested including Alpha Lipoic Acid, Kinetin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Coenzyme Q10, Green Tea and Ferulic Acid.
In just 4 weeks, NEW Prevage Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum is clinically proven to help even skin tone spots and improve the appearance of skin firmness by up to 60%.

NEW Prevage Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum is housed in a unique cylindrical dispenser (with a calibrated dropper) that features a fill-level window for product visibility.
This new anti- aging serum has a light fluid orangey texture that absorbs into the skin pretty fast.
Upon the event, each blogger was presented with 3 trial samplings of the latest anti-aging serum that could last me for a month.
Upon 3 weeks of usage (day and night), the fine lines on my right forehead appear to be less visible.
My overall skin tone appears more even toned and the look of redness has reduced significantly, thanks to Panthenyl Triacetate (PTA) in it. I’m super delighted to have found a product that can reduce my irritating skin redness (rosacea) YES! My skin appears less dull and more luminous and radiant. My skin texture seems smoother, clearer and pores are more refined.
With just barely 3 weeks, I’m already very pleased with my overall appearance, I couldn’t ask for more.
