The biodegradable capsules that make adding retinol into your routine a breeze

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this line-erasing serum

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / April 02 2020

The product

Retinol undoubtedly deserves its reputation as one of the most potent and effective ingredients for actively diminishing the visible signs of ageing.

However, certain drawbacks such as irritation can make the idea of introducing the ingredient into your skin care routine a little daunting. 

Luckily, Elizabeth Arden has introduced a formula that combines retinol with their cult-favourite ceramide serum for a gentle yet hardworking solution.

Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum are single-dose, biodegradable serum capsules formulated with retinol and a blend of ceramides to help minimise the appearance of wrinkles, boost moisture levels in the skin and strengthen the skin barrier, while also improving skin texture, tone and clarity for an overall more youthful-looking complexion. 

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put these anti-ageing serum capsules to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum to a panel of women aged between 35 and 59 who were concerned about fine lines and wrinkles.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum.

The sensitive skin-friendly formula: Our members with sensitive skin really appreciated the fact that they were able to utilise the full anti-ageing effects of the gentle, fragrance-free formula without any of the skin irritation usually associated with retinol. 

The anti-ageing benefits: Reviewers loved that the serum really delivered when it came to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, with one reviewer explaining that she had “some deep lines, but after two weeks of continued use the lines have visually softened.”

The overall improvement to their complexion: Members noted a considerable improvement in their skin texture, tone and overall hydration after using the serum for a few weeks.

The verdict

“The serum has a lovely rose tint and no smell, which is always a plus for me. My skin felt velvety smooth as soon as the serum was applied. After a few days of use I could notice the difference in the appearance of fine lines, my skin felt softer and the texture was more even. I would definitely recommend this product.”

“These capsules are beautiful to use. The serum goes on silky smooth and leaves my skin feeling gorgeously soft. As someone with sensitive skin it is lovely that there is no perfume in this serum. My skin [has been] loving these capsules and I would recommend this product to anyone else with mature and sensitive skin.”

“This is a great product! It does what it says it does, visibly diminishes lines & wrinkles, improves skin texture and tone, improves radiance & clarity, minimizes the look of pores & diminishes appearance of age spots and discolorations. It also left my skin feeling soft and hydrated… I've found products that provide decent hydration to be hard to find. This product helped immensely.”
