This month we have some new skin care products that I’ve also done the round up for you, we can say thanks to Elizabeth Arden, Jurlique, L’Oreal, L’Occitane and Estee Lauder for tempting our skin with their latest offerings of luscious goodness.


First up is Elizabeth Arden’s decadent Skin Illuminating Skin Care range for brighter more radiant skin.  The regimen based skincare collection targets dark spots and uneven skin tone and leverages the brand’s 100 years of product innovation and scientific research to bring to radiant life of this range.  Using the Elizabeth Arden Skin Illuminating System technology, we see the products featuring ingredients such as SpectraBrightTM, vitamin C derivative, antioxidants, supports skin’s own natural collagen, pore minimizers and diamond and pearl powders.

The regimen based collection includes; Cleanse — Skin Illuminating Smoothing Cleanser (125ml RRP$40), Tone — Skin Illuminating Pore Minimizing Toner (200ml RRP$40), Treat (AM) — Skin Illuminating Advanced Brightening Day Serum (30ml RRP$89.00), Treat (PM) — Skin Illuminating Advanced Brightening Night Capsules (50 capsules RRP$95.00), Moisturize — Skin Illuminating Firm and Reflect Moisturizer (50ml RRP$79) and Eyecare — Skin Illuminating Brightening Eye Serum (15ml RRP$65).


This range is richly decadent, the cleanser is thick and creamy leaving the skin feeling softly scrubbed and ready for rich hydrating action. It is a foaming cleanser with enzymatic micro-beads to start the brightening process off.  After toning which removes any last vestiges of dirt we layered the Day Serum under the incredibly rich Firm and Reflect Moisturiser that features micronized diamond powder and minerals to deeply hydrate and even your skin tone. But back to the Serum, although it is concentrated it is very lightweight and supports natural collagen and elastin production and sits perfectly under the moisturiser.  I also used the Brightening Eye Serum that also features micronized diamond powder illuminating the eyes – which I always need help with – and it slips on gently and easily.  Night time, ahhh I love Elizabeth Arden’s signature Capsules, my skin soaked up the Night Capsule Serum in a jiffy, beautifully rich and decadent and definitely not heavy.

And I have to mention the packaging, I would buy the collection just so it could sit on my fictional dresser (you know the ones with a matching pretty mirror?). I see myself elegantly sitting on my chair in front of my dresser lovingly slathering on this collection in my babydoll nightie and kitten heel slippers that come with little puffs of fluff! This Skin Care Range is not expensive, even though the packaging makes it look like it is and excitingly they’ve gone softer with the fragrance on this collection which is great to see (or smell) but whether it brightens and evens out the skin tone we’ll just have to wait and see!

Cellular renewal turnover, which remains relatively constant in our younger years, drops dramatically after 50… decreasing by a staggering 40% between the age of 30 and 70 years.  This slowdown is further heightened by a parallel decrease of the body’s natural ability to fuel its own repair as we mature. Age Perfect Cell Renewal specifically targets and protects mother cells to ensure their productive function remains potentialised. With the complementary combination of these active ingredients, Age Perfect Cell Renewal assists in the generation of 4 million new cells every day making skin fresher and full of life.
