Do you and your girlfriends need a girls night in for some skincare pampering? I’m giving away a deluxe Elizabeth Arden Skincare Set for one lucky reader and five of her friends to host a luxe skincare evening. You provide the cocktails and snacks and I’ll provide the skincare including these chic gold cosmetic bags filled with my favourite Arden products. What’s most exciting is you will be one of the very first to try the NEW Advanced Ceramide Capsules – a great anti-aging serum that fights the signs of aging.
Ceramides are lipid molecules that hold skin cells together. They create a protective layer that holds in moisture and plumps up the skin making skin look healthy and youthful. I like to describe it like this: skin cells are the bricks and ceramides are the mortar. As you can imagine, natural lipids in the top layer of the skin are lost due to harsh environmental conditions like cold and wind. Ceramides work to replenish these lipids. They also are very effective in strengthening the skin’s own natural barrier.
The brand new Advanced Ceramide Capsule lineup
Elizabeth was one of the first to discover the power of ceramides and was the first to introduce single dose capsules. You actually pull off the top of the capsule and gently massage the product into skin. What’s interesting to note is that Korean beauty enthusiasts have recently discovered ceramide moisturizing products resulting in an increase of 200% of ceramide-based products in 2016.
While Arden’s signature Ceramides have been a best-seller for years, this month marks the launch of an advanced, renovated formula that contains: more Ceramide 1, more fatty acids, more phytosphingosine and the introduction of several new ingredients. You’ll now notice ceramide 3, cholesterol, sea fennel extract, botanical complex technology and Tsubaki oil. This is because the Arden chemists have scoured the latest scientific research reports to identify ingredients that will give you even better results. This formula is a little denser and richer than in the past. But it absorbs very quickly.
This special Advanced Ceramides set includes:
Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum: 30 Capsules
Ceramide Purifying Cream Cleanser, 50 ml
Ceramide Lift and Firm Day Cream SPF 30
SuperStart deluxe mini
Ceramide Capsules: 14 capsules
Beautiful Colour Lipstick in Fig
Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Lipstick in Fig
Since the best makeup look starts with beautiful skin, I wanted to include my favourite Arden Beautiful Colour Lipstick. It’s called Fig and it is a warm deep purple shade. It’s beautiful!
The Giveaway: I gave away six of these deluxe Arden Advanced Ceramides sets to one lucky reader so she can host her own “Girls Night In”. (cocktails and snacks not included, lol) To enter, I asked readers to tell me in a blog post comment below who they would invite to a night of skincare pampering? Anne-Marie B told us (some moms from her kindergarten class) and we drew her name from all entries. Have big fun Anne-Marie!
