REVIEW: Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Optimizing Serum and Gentle Hydrating Cream
Another 2 sample products that I received so I could try and hope that it will be a miracle worker for my skin. Now I must admit that I am very lucky as I have a pretty good skin which does not break out or have any redness. I have a pimple, a spot maybe once a year or once every couple of years...but this bloody serum and cream combo gave me a spot with just one usage! I have a buffalo hide for skin so I was really surprise with how my skin reacted with this combo.
Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Optimizing Skin Serum
You know how much I love my serums but this is one serum that really put me off. I cannot vouch anything about the result, yet but the smell of this serum is just so bad. It smells like a mixture of chemical and melted plastic, I kid you not.
Texture wise is light lotion but it takes almost forever for it to absorb into my skin and it leaves a very uncomfortable tacky feeling that doesn't seems to really go away. This is again surprising for me as my dry skin usually drinks up serum almost instantly.
I will continue using this serum alone and if there is any improvement or if I miraculously fall in love with this serum then I will do another update post. But for now? Yuck!
Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Gentle Hydrating Cream
When I tried this on the back of my hand, the texture feels light and lotion-y but when I put it on my face, uh huh...gurl, let me tell ya...it's like putting cooking oil on my face. My face instantly looks oily and regardless how long I try to massage this cream into my skin, it doesn't absorb. Hello disco ball, not cool.
This cream does have a soft pleasant smell that reminds me of an open field. It's soothing and refreshing but I guess the good ends here for me.
I am a little disappointed as I have read many rave reviews about both products but unfortunately, these just did not work for me. I did let my spot go away and gave this combo another try and guess what? The damn spot came back again the next day! Grrr! But seriously, what a huge shame...
