Recently, Elizabeth Arden has organized a blogger event to introduce its new Visible Difference skincare series (launched in July 2012) that was held at a private room @ Fullerton Hotel. Wow! It’s been a long while since I’ve attended my last Elizabeth Arden event actually.
Elizabeth Arden, with 100 years of skincare expertise, was proud to introduce its spa-inspired, regimen-focused essential skincare line – Visible Difference – that helps balance skin to reveal its natural health and radiance. Specifically designed and customized for each unique skin type, a four-part daily treatment process promises to deliver a visible improvement in the appearance of skin in just 6 days*.

Visible Difference, when following the daily regimen, gives skin the hydration and treatment it needs to produce a natural glow and provide short-term and long-term visible results.
Elizabeth Arden believes that having beautiful skin means having healthy, radiant, clear-looking skin. Beautiful skin should also feel soft, supple and balanced. It doesn’t matter if your skin is dry, oily, or at times both, the new Visible Difference line is claimed to give your skin what it needs to look beautiful and feel healthy.
To achieve a healthy-looking skin, it is essential to choose the right products for your skin type and following a regimen. Visible Difference offers a simple and easy-to-maintain routine for each skin type, with a daily regimen and supplementary treatment products that make beautiful skin easy to achieve.
The four-step daily regimen consists of CLEANSE, TONE, TREAT AND MOISTURIZE.
The new line is specially packed with a color-coded – Red color for dry skin, Grey color for combination skin and Black color for oily skin – to help provide a customized 4-step skincare regimen for different skin types.
