Lou's Reviews || Elizabeth Arden Visable Difference Lotion


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

I have been using Elizabeth Arden's Visable Difference Balancing Lotion for about 3 months now and have completely finished the bottle. Like many beauty obsessives, I often have more than one product on the go at once and flipflop between a few. This was different. It was like sticky chinese food, I wanted it every single day.


This skin balancing lotion* retails for £27.20 if you choose to buy it online from FeelUnique (linked above), or you can also buy it from Debenhams beauty hall for £32. You can also buy it in other places, but these are the ones I've researched. Feel free to get your google on!

The idea behind this product is that the oil free formula acts to balance your own natural moisture levels so that your skin is just right for you- because you're unique. Awwee.

I have naturally dry skin and find it becomes quite thirsty during the day. I loved how this lotion felt light, non greasy (as you'd expect from an oil-free product) and sank in really quickly. I can't bare moisturisers that just slide about your face and prevent you from moving to your foundation routine. The luxury of time is no longer mine thanks to my little glitter bug baby.

Using this leaves my skin feeling great all day. By the evening it is ready for cleansing and night cream but overall I have noticed no dry patches (a problem I can suffer from with lesser quality products) and this pleases me. 

The packaging is fairly standard. I like that it has a pump- good for hygiene and waste preventative, but it's not something I would proudly display as one of my 'pretties'. It's just a staple product that lives in a drawer. I have actually taken and edited a couple of swatch shots but I asked myself, 'Are my readers really that silly that they need to see a dollup of white cream on my hand?' and the answer was no. We're all intelligent women (and possibly men if you're reading!), we know what a lotion looks like. Non?

In summary, yes to this skin product. It does what it promises, lived up to my expectations and as a result, my skin has thanked me. Next time I'm in need of a daily moisturiser (I currently have quite a stash put by), I will consider turning to this (if the lure of this Liz Earle one isn't too strong). 

Have you tried this product? Are you an Elizabeth Arden fan? What have you tried from there?



Toodlepip!

  2. I will try this out, just as your's my skin too gets really really dry in winters and I can see dry patches which irritates me because it just isn't possible to cover yourself up with heavy/ oily cream formulas always. those give me a sweaty nose and I hate it.

  5. I'm definitely going to be trying this out! I'm yet to use any Elizabeth Arden products, but this looks lovely. I too suffer from dry skin and I'm yet to find anything that works!

  8. I am a massive Elizabeth Arden fan and this one looks great. I have real trouble finding a face moisturiser that is strong enough for my very dry skin, if anyone has any suggestions that would be great! xxx

  16. I have been wanting to try this for a while! I saw a whole gift set in the Boots Christmas sale but decided I had enough products to use up at home - silly me! It looks good though so I may have to invest.. By the way I completely agree about the swatching lotions thing, it seems weird to me because they pretty much all look the same! Haha x

  20. I haven't tried Elizabeth Arden since their recent make-over but I've been tempted by this cream in particular. I've used their Prevage line before and loved it, I just can't justify spending that much consistently.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've only every tried the Eight Hour Cream from Elizabeth Arden and I find it too thick to use on my skin. Plus, it smells horrid.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ohh, I'll have to try this as I suffer from dry skin also! In fact I blogged about a few good products for dry skin just a few minutes ago. But this sounds really good, never tried Elizabeth Arden before x

  23. "like sticky Chinese food" lol! this looks great i have never tried any Elizabeth Arden skin care x

  36. I received a sample of this in a glossybox and I really loved it. I was tempted to buy it after the sample ran out but I just can't quite justify the price tag, especially when you add on the price of a night moisturiser as well. I might end up buying it by accident though xx

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nice review! ^^ i especially love your colourful background.
    p.s i totally agree on the 'do we even need to see the dollop of white cream' haha
    keep up the good work! <3

  49. Really please you have done a review on this I have heard such good things about this produce and have really wanted to try it. I know some other youtubers have been using it and I have heard some good things but this review has cemented it for me and I may have to brave the snow and get to Debenhams. Thanks for blogging keep up the good work.

  55. Ooohh la! This looks promising! I get dry patches...but a really oily T-Zone...do you think this will combat it?

  67. I've used the Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference range now for about six months and LOVE it! I'd highly recommend the Optimising Serum! I used it for a week and it got rid of all my dry skin so although its pricey at £45 it so worth it! You can get the whole range in a set that they had in for Christmas for £32 :) Fantastic post x x x x
