Retinol is such a major part of everyone’s and anyone’s skincare regime. No matter if you have oily skin, dry skin or sun-damaged. Retinol is as close to a wonder ingredient as one gets.
So what is Retinol? It is a derivative of Vitamin A and is similar to how AHA is an acid. There are several types, most typically Retinoid which is a prescription-only product and Retinol which is over-the-counter and is used in Elizabeth Arden’s latest product- The Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum.
What sets Elizabeth Arden’s Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum is that they are in capsule form. You see Retinol is notoriously unstable and completely loses it’s potency when exposed to light and air. Elizabeth Arden found that using these individual capsules helped make the effects of Retinol 76% more effective than any other packaging.
Aside from the beauty that is Retinol, Elizabeth Arden’s Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum have several other advantages… They also contain Peptides which help to promote wrinkle smoothing and improve skin elasticity, Ceramides 2 & 3 help replenish the skin’s natural ceramides to reinforce its moisture barrier. This is incredibly important as Retinol can often cause skin irritation, dryness and a tight feeling. All of this passes the longer one uses it but can often discourage one. They’ve also packed in some emollient oils for extra moisturising.
I highly recommend Elizabeth Arden’s Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum to anyone over their mid-twenties as it is a fantastic product and great for anybody who hasn’t used a Retinol product before. It is also placed in a single-dose capsule which is fantastic for not only keeping the actives active but also for being able to easily control the dose of retinol you are applying.
It is super important to only use Retinol products at night and make sure you apply a good broad-spectrum SPF during the day.
Elizabeth Arden’s Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum is available in two sizes 30 capsules for R565 and 60 capsules for R965.
