Every woman appreciates a little indulgence and of course, looking but most importantly, feeling beautiful. 

I’m not really one to watch much tawdry reality shows but I recently tuned into one of those Real Housewives episodes and can I just ask WHY most of the women all look the same? And seeing many lovely celebrities I’ve grown to watch and admire on the big screen falling victim to the excessive botox curse. 

Aging is a beautiful thing. We need to accept it and embrace it. At the same time, there’s absolutely nothing amiss about wanting to keep some of that youthfulness.

Alas, I think I found a little bit of that “fountain of youth” in Elizabeth Arden’s Prevage’s skincare products! Yes ladies, we can age gracefully with the right products and I’ve come upon some gold here. Really, this stuff works.

Two of their newest products to hit the shelves is their PREVAGE® Anti-aging Treatment Boosting Cleanser ($59.00 CDN) and the PREVAGE® Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Eye Serum ($155.00 CDN).


Utilizing a unique three-dimensional approach to cleansing, PREVAGE® Anti-aging Treatment Boosting Cleanser’s creamy, light-foaming formula removes impurities, eliminates dead skin cells and refines skin’s appearance for a refreshing, radiant glow.

The PREVAGE® three-dimensional approach to skin cleansing includes three distinct cleansing systems:

  • Surfactant System: an effective and mild foaming wash cleanses dirt and impurities from the skin’s surface.
  • Mechanical & Enzymatic Exfoliation: a combination of active enzyme and natural bamboo beads removes dead skin and promotes cell renewal to reveal beautifully smooth skin.
  • Detoxiquin: a mushroom extract and hexapeptide complex that purify skin cells, supporting its natural exfoliation and leaving skin more receptive to further treatments.

PREVAGE® Anti-aging Treatment Boosting Cleanser is proven to improve the efficacy of your skincare regimen. When used in tandem with PREVAGE® Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum, efficacy was boosted significantly. * After just 2 weeks, 94% of women saw an improvement in skin radiance and texture and 75% of women saw an improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles.This cleanser is suitable for all skin types.

Key Ingredients:

  • Idebenone: the single most powerful antioxidant* with an EPF® rating of 95 out of 100, it provides skin with the maximum protection from environmental assaults.
  • Bamboo Beads: this gentle exfoliator provides skin with a natural, mechanical exfoliation, gently sloughing away dead skin cells for a beautifully smooth complexion.
  • Mushroom Extract: this antioxidant works in tandem with Idebenone to help protect skin from environmental free radical damage.
  • Enzyme Exfoliant: this active enzyme eliminates dead skin cells to smooth skin’s surface and support natural cell renewal.
  • Shea Butter & Glycerin: this emollients and humectant blend imparts skin with long lasting moisture.

I like to take good care of my skin and have a usual skincare regimen every morning and night. Since having kids and after hitting my 30’s, I’ve noticed a difference in my face. My biggest issue are visible pores, specifically around my t-zone, especially on my nose. Since using this cleanser, WHAT a difference! I’m so very impressed so far.

This is what you see as soon as you open the packaging. And I couldn’t agree more!


Now my fellow moms can agree with me on this… good sleep does not come often with little ones. This affects your skin and mostly I’ve seen the affects on my eyes. Crows feet creeping in, some under eye shadows and puffiness in the morning. Yikes! 

This, my friends, is the secret. In all seriousness, this is my secret weapon!

My new BFF and secret weapon!

Love, love, love the PREVAGE® Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Eye Serum!
I saw results after only one use! And I have not stopped raving about it to everyone I know since.
Those that know me well, know that I review tons of products every day — some I like, some are meh, some not for me and then there’s that rare item that I just absolutely LOVE. And when I love something, I will make sure the world knows it. This is one of them.


New PREVAGE® Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Eye Serum combines Elizabeth Arden’s exclusive Idebenone technology, the single most powerful antioxidant, with a blend of Arazine™ and Thiotaine.

Arazine™ soothes skin and helps to reduce signs of aging caused by inflammation.
Thiotaine is another effective antioxidant that complements Idebenone in protecting skin from free radical damage due to environmental assaults, allowing Idebenone to concentrate on repairing the look of signs of aging.
By helping to protect skin from oxidative stress, Idebenone not only shields skin from environmental assaults, it also helps to support skin’s natural repair process and restore a youthful appearance.

This powerful serum helps restore radiance and refine the look of the natural contours around the eyes.
Elizabeth Arden Research & Development has discovered that the combination of Idebenone with Arazine™ helps neutralize 95% of environmental free radicals and minimizes the visible effects of cellular inflammation, the primary cause of signs of aging.

Wow! In layman’s terms, there are some powerful antioxidants in this eye serum that not only reduce the current damage on your eyes, but stalls the aging process to achieve youthful eyes longer!

Okay, so here’s the thing. Yes, they are pricier than your average skincare products but these are revolutionary products that truly work and do not require much on application. Sure you can spend way less on other skincare products but really, you are not achieving optimal, real results. Like they say, you pay for what you get. And in this case, you are getting some of that fountain of youth. Is it worth the splurge? I say YES. 

My daily skincare regimen now includes these 2 products and will certainly be around for a very long time. Both products are now available at: Shoppers Drug Mart, Hudson’s Bay, Sears, and London Drugs.



I want to share my love for these two new products and would love to give away one PREVAGE® Anti-aging Treatment Boosting Cleanser and one PREVAGE® Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Eye Serum {Total value of $214.00 CDN} to one of my lucky readers!
