Fans of the original Prevage Face formula and those who haven’t tried it yet both have reasons to be happy! What makes it so special? It’s high EPF rating, Prevage Face scores a 95 out of 100–meaning that it provides incredible antioxidant protection against environmental aggressors like smoke, pollution, and internal stressors that break down essential skin elasticity and other important anti-aging factors. Prevage currently scores the highest in EPF ratings.*
EPF® measures the protective power of topical antioxidants to help counter the visible effects of oxidative stress that can lead to signs of premature skin aging. Researchers say EPF® is an essential partner to SPF in an effective anti-aging strategy. –via ElizabethArden.com
In extensive testing, Idebenone (the hero ingredient of Prevage) beat out six of the leading antioxidants to be proven the most effective antioxidant for the visible signs of aging. Several years ago when it was first launched, I plunked down the serious cash for the original version and the eye cream and loved it immensely. People told me my skin was constantly glowing and I’d like to think it’s helped some of my sun damage. I loved it then, and since it’s been re-engineered for even more benefits for measurably correcting sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and minor scars, in addition to providing exceptional environmental protection (which is just as important as sunscreen in my opinion)–skin has no excuse but to be a happy camper.
In my experience with Prevage Face both past and present, I do notice immediate hydration and smoothing benefits, but we can’t expect overnight miracles. Clinical testing showed improvements in more advanced aging concerns within 4-8 weeks of consistent use, and in some cases, even longer.
If you are sending out a serious SOS and need skin help (or if you aren’t using anything for antioxidant protection), you may wish to seek out Prevage Face. ($155) Give it at least several weeks and you might be surprised! I spent two weeks using the new formula and got some glow back (I’m in my 30′s), and then I shared with my Mom (in her 50′s) who has a lot of sun damage and is a smoker (*tsk tsk*). She came over bragging about some subtle improvements herself last week after a few weeks of use. Mom isn’t ordinarily so easily impressed…
