Review: Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum

After a long day at work, I believe most ladies if not all, would yearn for a pampering facial session and a perfect, comfortable facial bed to relax our minds and souls, and would be comfortable enough for a doze. And thanks to Elizabeth Arden Singapore, I was invited to a revitalizing and rejuvenating Elizabeth Arden Ceramide facial session held at Capella Singapore, Sentosa.

My therapist used a range of Ceramide Youth Restoring skincare products including the EA Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum (review at the bottom) during the facial session.

According to Elizabeth Arden's research, the natural production of ceramides, collagen, elastin and essential nutrients like calcium all contribute to skin’s healthy look, but can be compromised by age and environmental aggression. Of these, ceramides, which comprise 50% of essential lipids found in the skin’s barrier layer, are critical because they help maintain the integrity of skin’s first line of defense against aging signs. This research led Elizabeth Arden to develop bio-engineered, skin identical Ceramides, to create pure, potent single dose capsules to deliver these precious and protective elements to the skin.

Results were visible after first use of the Ceramide Youth Restoring skincare products as my skin appeared smoother and hydrated. My skin also looked toned and revitalized.

“The barrier layer is the skin you see. A healthy barrier means strong, smooth, healthy looking skin,” explains Art Pellegrino, Vice President Research and Development Elizabeth Arden.
“Loss of skin’s natural ceramides in the barrier layer can lead to a loss of moisture, roughness, fine lines and wrinkles and also allow outside irritants to get into the skin.”

After the treatment, I was able to try out some of Elizabeth Arden's makeup items which my therapist applied for me. I could feel that the makeup went on so smoothly on my face. There were lots of makeup for us to test and play with.

These were the makeups used on my face.

Thank you all lovely people at Elizabeth Arden for your love and hospitality. (*Send flying kisses!*)

After the facial session, I've incorporated Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum into my daily skincare regime and have no regret using it at all!

Moving on to my review.

I welcome Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum into my life. Today, Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum is the world’s leading capsule technology and the centerpiece of the Ceramide Youth Restoring skincare line.
Key Ingredients 
  • Ceramide Lipid Complex (CLX) – a combination of: 
    o Ceramideds 1 & 6 - skin identical lipids that enhance skin’s own natural protective moisture barrier and help to retexturize, exfoliate, and smooth skin. 
    o Linoleic Acid & Linolenic Acid are essential fatty acids that work with ceramides to help maintain the integrity of the skin’s lipid barrier for healthy-looking skin. 
    o Phytosphingosines are lipids naturally found in the stratum corneum and considered to be part of skin’s natural anti-microbial system. 
  • Double Retinyl Technology is a combination of Retinyl Linoleate and Retinyl Palmitate exclusive to EA. These Vitamin A derivatives work to smooth lines and wrinkles and help support skin’s own natural collagen for a firmer look. Retinyls also improve skin’s clarity for an even-toned appearance. 
  • Borage Seed Extract, is a powerful skin soother that soothes sensitive skin. 
  • Vitamin E is a skin conditioner that also provides protection against environmental stress. 

Key Benefits: 
With exclusive Ceramide Lipid Complex (CLX), Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum gives skin a touch of golden luxury and a powerful surge of youth-restoring benefits: 
  • Visibly improves skin tone and clarity. 
  • Instantly retexturizes skin for noticeably softer, smoother looking skin.
  • Supports natural collagen levels to give skin a firmer more resilient look. 
  • Works to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 
  • Helps strengthen skin’s natural protective moisture barrier. 
  • Convenient, pre-measured single dose capsules, sealed for purity and potency. 
  • Fragrance, preservative and emulsifier free. 
  • Clinically and dermatologist tested.
Elizabeth Arden’s iconic golden capsules are airtight and sealed for effectiveness, eliminating the need for preservatives and emulsifiers. Each single dose capsule delivers a concentrated application of skin-essential ceramide benefits in the most efficient way.

The serum may appear greasy in texture but it does not feel greasy on my skin and it gives my skin a matte finish.
The best way to apply the serum is to warm up the serum in your palm before applying on your face. This increases the rate of absorption into the skin. Although it may appear oily, it is actually a matte finish. Continue to massage it for about a minute helps in the absorption rate.

Although I would not say that the serum helps in minimizing the appearance of my pores, but this serum definitely worked in hydrating and toning my skin. My sister joined me in using this serum and we both love it greatly because this serum also helped us to balance the moisture level of our skin, hence minimizing oil production along our T-zone areas and made our skin feel good after using it.

To Use: To open capsules twist tab around twice. Smooth contents over face, neck and décolletage after cleansing and before moisturizing in both the morning and the evening. Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum smooth on to leave an incredibly silky finish.
