Today I'd like to talk about the Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Ageing Treatment Boosting Cleanser. This cleanser promises to help improve skin texture and boost skin radiance, and I certainly wouldn't my skin improving in either area, so I was very excited to be trialing this cleanser, which is available from ActiveSkin.

The cleanser contains both physical scrubbing beads in the form of bamboo microbeads slough away dead skin cells as well as chemical enzymatic exfoliators to which clean deep down every single pore to refine the skin's surface for a smoother, softer and clearer skin.

The cleanser is called a boosting cleanser as it has also been formulated with idebenone, one of the most powerful antioxidants as well as mushroom extracts which combined help protect the skin from environmental damage. It also contains.

The cleanser is slightly gritty, but personally, while I do like purely chemical exfoliators, I also like to feel the scrubbing particles between my fingers. But consequently I only feel that the cleanser should be used every few days.

Due to the actual scrubbing particles, and as it is consequently not ideal to get it too close to the eyes, I do not feel that it is a cleanser that is suitable for removing makeup, and consequently I have either been using it as a second cleanse, or alternatively as the only cleanser in the morning, where I often use it in the shower.

Used on slightly damp skin, you can almost immediately feel the doing its magic, and after gently massaging it over the skin for a minute or two, and then rinsing it off, you can both feel and see the results. My skin not only is so incredibly soft and smooth, it also has a healthy glow. And all without irritating my skin or making it feel tight or dry.

As for the ant-ageing benefits, it is really difficult to say if the Anti-Ageing Treatment Boosting Cleanser really does live up to its claims - firstly because it is actually only in touch with the skin for a few moments before it is rinsed off, and secondly, because I of course use countless anti-ageing serums and creams afterwards and it is impossible to completely distinguish the unique effects of each product used.

That said, I really enjoy using this cleanser as a scrub every few days as an extra cleanse as it makes my skin feel so soft, healthy and glowing.

This is the first product from the Elizabeth Arden Prevage range that I've ever tried, but considering how much I enjoy using this cleanser, I definitely wouldn't mind checking out some of the other products from the range.
