Review – Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Night Cream & NEW Prevage Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++

..

..

As I’m one of the lucky few to be invited for the recent PREVAGE Bloggers and Forumers Workshop, each of us were given the miniature set (approx a month supply) of Elizabeth Arden Prevage® Anti-Aging Night Cream (7ml) & the NEW Prevage® Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++ (5ml). We are fortunate to be able to test both day and night cream, select our favourite between both and a COMPLIMENTARY FULL SIZE PRODUCT of our choice (each worth S$239) will be given to us.

Both Prevage® Anti-Aging Night Cream and NEW Prevage® Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++, Elizabeth Arden premium anti-aging skincare series, venture to portray that idebenone is the best antioxidant to exert an anti-aging, beneficial effect on skin.

The study funded by Allergan (who owns Prevage) has shown that idebenone exerted greater antioxidant activity than other commonly used antioxidants like vitamin C and green tea.

Product Profile

Prevage® Anti-Aging Night Cream

With encapsulated Idebenone, Mega Complex-A and a blend of high performance moisturizers, this multi-perfection nourishing cream infuses skin throughout the night to boost its anti-aging abilities and help enhance skin’s own natural repair process. Wake up with skin that looks repaired, refreshed and recovered.

PREVAGE® Anti-aging Night Cream is proven to help improve:

  • Resilience — Restores skin’s natural resilience for a firmer look.
  • Dryness — Reverses dryness with intense hydration.
  • Radiance — Gives skin a bright, even toned, more radiant appearance.

NEW Prevage® Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++

The first ever moisturizer with both high level SPF protection and revolutionary idebenone, proven as the most powerful and effective antioxidant on the market today. Prevage Day works immediately to moisturize and improve the appearance of dry, sun damaged skin, creating a brighter, more radiant look. 95% of consumers tested reported softer, smoother skin. To reinforce your skin’s defenses, team up Prevage® Day with Prevage® Anti-Aging Treatment to help fight aging signs and diminish the appearance of existing sun damage – fine lines, wrinkles and discolorations.

Prevage® Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++ is proven to help improve:

  • Deflect the sun – with broad spectrum SPF protection, your first line of defense against skin damaging UVA and UVB rays.
  • Neutralize free radicals – with clinically proven Idebenone.
  • Defy dryness – to help lock in essential moisture with an intense yet lightweight dose of daily hydration.

Ingredients

Prevage® key ingredient Idebenone, a fine orange powder, is claimed as one of the most powerful and effective antioxidants on the market today.

Prevage® Anti-Aging Night Cream

It contains sufficient natural lipids, humectants, emollients and fatty acids that are extremely benefit for hydrating skin.

Although it contains superficial amounts of skin irritant ingredients but fortunately it doesn’t cause any skin problems to my skin.

NEW Prevage® Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++

It contains Thiotaine, an antioxidant that complements Idebenone in protecting skin from free radical damage caused by environmental assaults.

It also contains sufficient active sunscreen ingredients such as octinoxate, octisalate, oxybenzone, octocrylene, avobenzone, iron oxides and titanium dioxide.

Again, similar to Prevage® Night cream, Prevage® Day also contains minimal skin irritant ingredients which thankfully never cause any skin inflammation to my skin.

Review

Prevage® Anti-Aging Night Cream, 1.7 oz. / 50 ml, S$239

Prevage® Anti-Aging Night Cream has won the ‘BEAUTY WINNER’ for Best Anti-Aging Facial Moisturizer, Health Magazine America’s Healthiest Buys 2008.

Firstly, what I find interesting on Prevage® Anti-Aging Night Cream is the packaging. Although it is packaged in a jar that will usually cause instability on the antioxidant. BUT fortunately Elizabeth Arden has successfully created it in an innovative way which it uses an airless jar with one-touch dispensing.

The orange creamy texture is much richer than Prevage® Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++. As I sleep in the air-conditioning room, my skin especially loves the richness and is definitely very suitable for normal to dry skin like mine. Prevage® Anti-Aging Night Cream, contains sufficient potent hydrating ingredients, makes my skin highly moisture on the next morning.

With encapsulated Idebenone, Mega Complex-A and a blend of high performance moisturizers, Prevage® Anti-Aging Night Cream not only helps to repair my skin but also slow down the damage of free radicals and keep my skin intense hydrating.

NEW Prevage® Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++, 1.7 oz. / 50 ml, S$239

The first ever moisturizer with both high level SPF protection and Idebenone with a top EPF® (Environmental Protection Factor) rating of 95 – a measurement of protective capability of antioxidants and the highest grade achieved to date.

As the light creamy texture does leave a slight greasy feel after application, so in order not to clog my pores I will only use very little of the moisturizer. Although Prevage® contains sufficient sunscreen protection (I know it sounds weird) but for the sake of double protection (as I know very well that sun protection is the number 1 prevention for skin aging), I will usually top up with thick layer of sunscreen after the moisturizer. I just feel safe with this regimen!

Studies have shown that to effectively protect sun damage, it is important to protect skin with antioxidant and sunscreen. The sunscreens do not filter all the rays so using antioxidants together with sunscreens provides a higher level of protection and Prevage® Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++ is one good choice. With sufficient sunscreen and antioxidant protections, it helps to neutralize free radicals, protect and prevent further damage to my skin.

Rating

Prevage® Anti-Aging Night Cream

NEW Prevage® Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++

Although both are equally good, so for my choice of the complimentary full-size product, I will pick Prevage® Anti-Aging Night Cream as my skin loves the richness texture of it.

    My skin is oily. Please Let me know that Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Night Cream or New Prevage Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++ which is suitable for me?

  3. Shirleen says:

    Hi Alexis,

    If your skin is oily, I will recommend you to take the EA Prevage Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++. I find that the night cream is a bit too creamy for your oily skin. :-)

  4. Annie says:

    Hi Shirleen

    I have combination skin, and sensitive at times. Will the EA Prevage Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA+ be a good choice?
    I would like to try a moisturizer with sufficient SPF, instead of piling up with moisturizer and then with a sunblock.
    Besides this, do you have any other recommendations for a day moisturizer with a sunscreen together (at least with SPF 30)? Thanks in advance!

  5. Shirleen says:

    Hi Annie,

    The EA Prevage Day Moisturizer SPF30 is definitely suitable for you. I do have sensitive skin too and I personally love this product very much. It doesn’t feel that oily. Highly recommended. :-)

Got something to say? Go for it!
