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

by rockymountainmama, Glenwood Springs, CO USA

Adverse Effects

Anti-oxidant, anti-wrinkle

Severe rash

I used Prevage for about 6 weeks and noticed small bumps on my cheeks. The next day I began to get a severe rash around my eyes, and it spread to my entire face and neck. It was unbearable, itchy and raised, like hives. It took about a week to overcome. My doctor did some research and learned that after 6 weeks of use, several subjects experienced this rash. Just to make sure it was the Prevage, I tried using it on the inside of my arm. I have had an itchy, severe rash there for 4 days since that experiment. I would not recommend this product. My skin is not highly sensitive and I have never had a rash like this before.

Do not recommend Prevage!
