Skin Care Review: Elizabeth Arden Prevage Idebenone 0.5% (via Allergan)

by Tanushree B, Mumbai India


Anti Aging and Skin Rejuvenation Treatment

This cream could avoid usage of ingredients like Urea, Methyl paraben and a Fragrance.

I am a 27 years old Indian woman and I always had a combination to oily skin with mild sensitivity and moderate blackhead and acne problem which has reduced due to tretinoin treatments. My skin now has pigmentation and a blotchy appearance due to sun tan and the humid climate here in India. In India it is very difficult to get products that work well and provide good long term results. After the much touted introduction of Idebenone in the US market I decided to try it on myself. I really wanted to do away with my blotchy skin post tretinoin treatment for my acne problem! In just 3 weeks, I experienced tightened skin and reduced pore size on the apples of my cheeks, nose and chin. The oiliness was reduced. The blackheads were gone and there are just mild scars and acne marks left which will also go and there is a lot of product left yet as you need very little. The product is concentrated. So using it with your daily moisturiser gives better results. I use a 90% aloe vera gel moisturiser. The fine lines on my forehead and in between eyebrows and laugh lines are gone. My skin seems brighter than the time before I started this treatment. I will now reduce the number of applications to every alternate day and then keep it to a once a week treatment regimen till my problem goes. After that my DIY home made skin care does work fine for me.

The cream is good & it helps problem skins. Patch test before usage is important.
