My mum has been using Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Special Moisture Formula since its launch and her skin is pretty damn good. So I thought I would jump on the train with mama and give it a go. Mum kinda cheats and uses the body lotion as an all in one face and skin cream but I found that while the body lotion is light, it did make my skin a little bit oily. Understandable as it is for moisturising the skin! So I was walking around in Debenhams and saw that the cream complex for the face was on offer. Obviously the gods wanted me to try this out!
Review: So the Visible Difference Refining Moisture Cream Complex has a nice long title for a simple face cream. It promises to give you better looking skin in 21 days and it does. My skin was glowing, healthy and lovely. I seriously think that my spot scars were fading a little bit and my skin tone seemed much more even. But for me, the oily skin thing was a problem, AS ALWAYS! Should have guessed from the body lotion (which it turns out is actually lighter than the face cream) and the description of the product:
A rich emollient moisturising cream that penetrates deep into the skin for full effect and helps your skin build an inner moisture reserve.
Ideal for dry skins that want a luxurious feel. Tests have shown a significant reduction in the appearance of fine dryness lines and a dramatic improvement in skin’s appearance in 14-21 days.
See I didn’t read up about it before I bought it, just went with the brand and the fact mum uses it. It is aimed at older, dry skin but I still think it can be used at any age. It’s just not ideal for someone with oily skin. So alas, my search continues. But when I’m older and hopefully shine-free, I will be coming back to this beauty.
Verdict: Amazing face cream that does exactly what it says on the tin. Just not ideal if you have oily/combination skin!
