Elizabeth Arden Skin Illuminating is an advanced skincare collection that addresses the various degrees of skin discolouration, uneven texture and tone. Featuring the new Skin Illuminating Retexturizing Pads and newly reformulated Skin Illuminating Brightening Day Serum and Skin Illuminating Night Capsules, this innovative lineup is able to transform the appearance of dark spots and uneven tone, while enhancing the skin’s ability to reflect light.

In this post, I am talking about one product from the Skin Illuminating Brightening range, the Skin Illuminating Night Capsules (RRP$165, 50 capsules)

Key Ingredients:
Advanced MIX Concentrate—A clinically proven and potent blend of Vitamin C and Niacinamide encapsulated together that is able to target and help minimise the appearance of existing dark spots, sun spots, redness and uneven skin tone, creating a more reflective, even toned and brighter skin surface.
Licorice Extract—A powerful antioxidant to brighten the look of skin.

SpectraBright—A potent botanical hops extract that helps brighten skin’s overall appearance while minimising the appearance of dark spots and discolourations.

Paracress and Date Palm Kernel Extracts—While the skin recovers during sleep, powerful botanicals and environmental protectants fight the damaging effects of pollution and support skin’s natural collagen and elastin matrix.

To use: To open capsules, twist tab around twice to snap off. Smooth serum onto cleansed face. To protect the integrity of the advanced formula’s ingredients, store Skin Illuminating Night Capsules away from direct light and in a cool, dry place.

Read my review about Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules here


They come beautifully packaged with tiny silver capsules inside. To use it, just twist it and squeeze the luscious contents into your hands!

During my regular night-time routine before applying my night cream I have been trying this Elizabeth Arden Skin Illuminating Advanced Brightening Night Capsules and I’m looking forward to using these a couple more times. You don’t have to use it every night unless you have super dry skin. I use 3 capsules per week. Its very easy to twist, open it. The texture of the formula is velvety smooth and almost feels like you are applying a primer on. You know that silicone primer feel.  and I was left with lovely velvety smooth skin in the morning. Hopefully they’ll be like that every time! I didn’t notice any skin irritation or redness after using this.

The main purpose of  these capsules are to help even out your skintone and  and also give your that Vitamin C booster it needs. I look forward to use and finish all of the capsules before I give my final review about these.ElizabethArden_Skin_Illuminating_NightCapsules_007

Skin Illuminating Night Capsules  retails for NZD $165 and is available at all Elizabeth Arden Stores in NZ and Australia

I’ve tried the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide capsules here and there but never been able to afford a whole big jar! These ones look great, I love the pads from the Skin Illuminating range so I bet these would be good too.

Good that you did not have any irritation or redness, I recently tried an oil for night time and it gave me breakouts.

    ohh…thats bad…Always do a patch test sweets befr trying out….Maybe ur skin is very sensitive to any of the ingredients… I love facial oils and find it much better than most night creams…I kind of mix and match and use products

      Usually my skin gets accustomed to all types of products easily, so I assumed this wont hurt and tried it. I got tiny tiny white pop outs the next day. It has a mixture of oils, so something has not suited me.

        oh….thats sad….I wish it worked for you…. the capsules or serum always have a blend of different oils. Please be very careful with ingredients… Please do patch test especially if you are trying for the first time…The elizabeth arden night capsules gold restorative ones that I tried previously initially gave breakouts for me… But, I continued to use, and my skin started liking it after a couple of uses. Hope u feel better soon ….
