Elizabeth Arden Prevage

Is a Solution for:
Sagging Skin
April 23, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 0 Comments
Every once in a while, I have made attempts to review Elizabeth Arden's Prevage but found myself losing interest half way through the ingredients list. I still feel like that, but this time I persevered because someone who uses it specifically asked me what I think.

If you put a lot of faith idebenone, then Prevage is not bad. The ingredients for Prevage and Prevage MD are almost identical, the key difference being a 0.5% and 1% concentration idebenone respectively. Idebenone is sometimes listed as hydroxydecyl ubiquinone. It is a potent anti-oxidant that one independent study said could reduce wrinkles by 27% within six weeks.

The problem is that, aside from idebenone, there isn't much to be thrilled about. The rest of Prevage is really amino acids and the usual stuff that makes a cream a cream. There is one surprising ingredient and not in a good way: ammonium hydroxide. This is household bleach and is a severe irritant. I can only imagine it has been included as some kind of exfoliator. In addition, there are at least three other irritants.
