If your skin is showing any visible signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging or dullness, you need to include a product containing Retinol into your regime.

Retinol is considered by industry experts as the gold standard of anti-ageing ingredients – for good reason too. Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative and helps with overall texture and tone improvement. It assists with cell turnover and supports skin’s natural collagen and elastin, thus visibly improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

I’ve been trying the new Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum for the past month and a half and am very happy with the results. These capsules combine the powerful line-erasing benefits of Retinol with the moisture-boosting and skin barrier repair benefits of Ceramides. It was in 1990 that Elizabeth Arden launched the now iconic Ceramide Capsules – a first of its kind bio-engineered, skin-identical ceramides available in a single-does capsule. 25 years later (and with 46+ awards), Elizabeth Arden now introduces the next revolution in skincare – Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum.

What this formula essentially does is combine the powerful line-erasing benefits of Retinol with the moisture-boosting and skin barrier repair benefits of Ceramides. By leveraging these complementary technologies, the brand is able to provide visible results while helping to protect against the dryness that can be typical of Retinol products.

Aside from retinol, the capsules also contain Youth-Restoring Peptides to promote wrinkle smoothing and improve the appearance of skin tone and elasticity. Avocado, Sunflower Seed and Olive oils have been added to deeply moisturise and condition the skin, while ceramides 2 & 3 help replenish skin’s natural ceramides to reinforce its moisture barrier.

As powerful as Retinol is, it is extremely sensitive to light and air which can affect its stability. The mono-dose capsule format allows for targeted and precise dosage, and along with a meticulous manufacturing process it helps to protect Retinol from light and air exposure, ensuring the potency of every application. So much so that in stability testing, the Retinol in these capsules was 76% more potent compared to its non-encapsulated equivalent.

Insider Tip:

“Using more of a Retinol product won’t make it more efficacious, just more irritating” – Dr. Dendy Engelman, Dermatologist

Why are most Retinol products used at night?

Retinol is notoriously unstable and loses potency whenever exposed to light and air. Retinol can also make the skin more hypersensitive to sunlight, so it’s best used in the evenings as part of your nighttime skincare regime. It’s at night that the skins natural cell turnover works hardest, so incorporating Retinol then will yield the best and most noticeable results in the skin. One also needs to ensure that a broad-spectrum SPF is worn during the day – especially if you’re using retinol. In fact, in a sunny country like South Africa, you should be wearing a sunscreen every day, winter or summer to protect skin against the sun’s damaging rays!

How do you use the Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum?

Simply twist the tab twice to open a capsule. Smooth the serum over cleansed face and neck every evening before your moisturizer.

Tip: Your skin needs to build up a tolerance to Retinol. If you’ve never used retinol before, use the capsules twice a week until you skin is acclimated to the Retinol. Thereafter, you can use a capsule every night.

My overall experience with the Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum has been nothing short of remarkable! Yes, I’m using the word ‘remarkable’ because I’ve tried MANY Retinol treatments previously, but it’s been with these mono-dose capsules that I’ve seen the best results. After just one week of using these capsules every evening (my skin is accustomed to Retinol, so I was able to use them nightly) I noticed a VERY visible reduction in a deep line on my forehead. My skin was also more radiant after just a week. After a month of use, the very subtle lines on my neck were completely gone (perhaps these lines were due to dehydration, but still!). However, the most noticeable effects have been on my most troublesome area – my décolletage.

However, the most noticeable effects have been on my most troublesome area – my décolletage.

After years of neglect and way too much sun exposure, this area has deep vertical lines and is deeply wrinkled with a reddish tone. One month of using the Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum has resulted in a visible reduction in vertical lines and the area in general seems less crêpey. Somehow, the redness (while still there), seems a lot less prominent. Thanks to these mono-dose capsules, I feel confident enough to wear tops and blouses that expose this area. But don’t take my word for it, try them for yourself – you won’t be disappointed.

Retinol

The ingredient that I live the most in this product is Vitamin A which as per the article helps with overall texture and tone improvement. As I am getting older, I realise that we need to take care of our skin differently and I am now experiencing sagging, dull skin with some fine lines and let’s not get started in the pigmentation. I think this would be a great product to help me with my skin concerns.

Hi Candice-Lee
Thank you for Sharing your insights. No one ever tells you when to start using anti-aging products. I’m 31 and I believe I’m a little behind already. Retinol is certainly the ingredient to look out for, but I do appreciate that natural products like avocado, sunflower seed and olive oils are found in the capsules too. They are just as important! 😊
Crossing fingers, with wide open eyes ( to minimize wrinkles naturally) lol…
warm regards

The magic ingredient to bust skin ageing in the guts is RETINOL

The other magic ingredient is getting enough valuable sleep – something that I have not been getting much of this year, since my daughter started grd 4. Yoh! The wrinkles, melasma and grey hair has hit me like a bomb this year! Thank you Grd 4 :/ (or it could be that the big 40 is fast approaching and I need a little help to see me through ha!)

Retinol is required. I’m a retired cosmetologist with such problematic skin. It effected my job as people naturally tend to make assumptions on your ability to help them if your skin doesn’t look its best. So I eventually left the profession. Makeup does wonders to cover up imperfections but it would be nice to walk out the house sometimes without it. Thank you.

Retinol 💜 packaging is gorgeous!
