We’ll level with you, we’re not totally sure what this product is, what it’s used for or why it’s so popular, but what we do know is that A-listers and beauty editors are raving about Elizabeth Arden’s Retinol Ceramide Capsules right now, with brand spokesperson Reese Witherspoon telling Harper’s Bazaar they ‘changed her skin’.
Trust us, or trust the beauty editors we work with, when we say these clever little capsules will earn a permanent place on your partner’s bathroom shelf: with each single-use pod containing a perfect portion of skin-boosting actives, they’re one of the easiest ways to reap the benefits of retinol without any of the guesswork, and, for the time being at least they’re reduced by a huge 40% as part of Amazon’s gigantic Prime Day sale.
Apparently, the pod’s secret is their advanced encapsulation technology, which means the retinol – easily degraded by light and air – inside each capsule is kept as potent as possible until the moment it reaches your skin. In fact, the brand claims the formula is 76% more potent than your average retinol serum. This clever process also means the formula can stay totally free from preservatives and fragrances, and as each capsule contains a single application, you’ll never waste a drop.
Used consistently for a month, this skincare game-changer can deliver a visible improvement to rough skin texture, as well as working to diminish fine lines and enlarged pores. It’s a brilliant all-rounder for every skin type: as the nourishing ceramides balance the drying effects of the retinol, they’re even ideal for sensitive skin.
And here’s the very best part: thanks to Prime Day, a 30-day supply is currently just £25.20, instead of the usual £42. You’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to get the discount, but you can always sign up for a (free!) trial today before heading to the checkout. A brilliant beauty bargain.
