What is it?
Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum, $195 (90 capsules)
Why do we like it?
There is a huge trend in measured-dose skincare right now, and the leaders in that trend were Elizabeth Arden when they launched these capsules back in 1990. Now the iconic single dose of anti-ageing serum has had a facelift. While they are still housed in the original one shot gold packaging, they now boast triple the anti-ageing power in the ceramide concoction. A blend of cholesterol, fatty acids, Tsubaki oil and the vitamin A derivative, retinyl palmitate, with healing plant extracts, sea fennel, alfalfa, olive and coconut oils. Together these ingredients boost moisture, and help to blur brown spots and fine lines.
How do we use it?
With a simple twist, press the measured dose of golden serum onto the face and neck, wait a few minutes for it soak in, and then you can layer creams over the top (anyone over 40 could benefit from using twice a day). And for anyone who travels, these little capsules will cut down the weight in your cosmetic bag, ideal for that weekend beauty bag, or short business trips.
