 When it comes to capsule skin care Elizabeth Arden wins hands down; their Ceramide capsules have been around since the nineties and last year a high performance Retinol capsule launched and now, its newest innovation Elizabeth Arden Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules  Radiance Renewal Serum have dropped and they sure pack a powerful punch! 

 Vitamin C is a highly effective ingredient for skincare and Elizabeth Arden have used their innovative capsule technology to create a serum that is 178 times more potent than traditional vitamin C. As Vitamin C is known for its unstable properties, Elizabeth Arden have solved the problem of packaging the serum by encapsulation which has been proven to prolong the stability of ingredients. It is an oil soluble formula to complement the skin's moisture barrier (rather than traditional water-soluble Vitamin C), which means it lasts longer and is also able to penetrate skin better.  

 If brighter, even toned and radiant skin is what you're after, Elizabeth Arden Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules  Radiance Renewal Serum with their winning formula are well worth incorporating into your beauty routine.  So what are the key ingredients?



CERAMIDES: Helps protect skin against loss of moisture and help keep the glow


VITAMINC C: Easily absorbed, ultra stable and helps with pigmentation communication 


CLARY SAGE: Soothes and protects skin against free radicals


VITAMIN E: Supports Vitamin C efficacy and prolongs potency


EMOLIENT OILS: Helps repair and protect skin


AVOCADO, SUNFLOWER SEED & OLIVE OILS: Impart skin with moisturising and skin conditioning benefits

 Results show that after one application, 86% of women saw an instant improvement in skin radiance and luminosity, while in clinical studies 97% of women saw a clinical reduction in the appearance of dark spots, and 100% of women showed a 78% clinical improvement in skin tone*. Not too shabby for stats,  agree?



I like the four P's which sum up the capsules perfectly!


PURE: hermetically sealed to keep active ingredients fresh, no added preservatives

POTENT: water-free formulated means a higher concentration of active ingredient

PRECISE: Pre-measured mono-dose that takes the guesswork out of skincare

POWERFUL monodies preserves the efficacy of active ingredients 


I'm a huge fan of capsules as the mono-dose means the perfect amount with no wastage, allows for a more targeted treatment, addresses dullness and brightness, are travel friendly as no spillage,  take up zip zero space and best of all the capsules are biodegradable. As I said, the capsules are super easy to work into your existing beauty routine and I generally use them between a moisturiser and sunscreen; just a heads up - the consistency is a little runnier than the other capsules, so be careful when twisting off the top. They have a satiny finish that is non oily =LOVE!





Have you tried these out yet? Let me know what you think.
