Skin Care Review: Elizabeth Arden Prevage

by Laurie Tubbs, Papamoa, Tauranga, New Zealand

Adverse Effects

Being an anti-oxident, apparently "eats up skin damage" if you can tolerate it.

Price is TOOO expensive for the risk of the allergic reaction many people have.

I decided to try Elizabeth Arden Prevage after hearing and reading all the rave reviews about it. My skin was in good conditon, not overly sensitive, normal/oily panel and after using Cellex-C and glycolic toners I had got rid of alot of my skin discolouration-my skin looked clear and healthy. I just wanted an anti-oxident to use at night under my vitamin A night cream.What a mistake! After 10 days of using it I developed a Huge red blotchy lumpy rash all over my face, neck and back of hands. I had done a pre test and used the stuff for 10 days without a problem then with no warning I broke out. 10 days later I am still waiting for it to go down-it still seems to be coming out of my pores and in this time I have stopped using any active face creams.Luckily the shop gave me a full refund, but tried to persuade me to use it every other night etc. but I don't want to go through this again. Just hope my skin returns to normal, but am afraid I'm going to be left blotchy for a long time.

If you have any form of skin sensitivity, don't use Prevage.
