Elizabeth Arden Skin Illuminating Brightening Day Serum - Does It Work?-Review

What Is Elizabeth Arden Skin Illuminating Brightening Day Serum?

The following review is for a product called Skin Illuminating Brightening Day Serum. The manufacturer claims that this product diminishes the appearance of discoloration, redness and dark spots. They also claim that it evens out and brightens skin tone, supports the skin's own natural elastin and collagen matrix and exfoliates the skin while improving light reflectivity. Find out whether the product lives up to the claims in the review below.

Ingredients & How It Works

  • Advanced MI Concentrate
  • Diamond Powder
  • Optical Diffusers
  • Soft Focus Silicone
  • Biomimetic Peptide

Advanced MI Concentrate is clinically proven and delivers a potent blend of vitamin C and niacinamide which minimizes the appearance of sun spots, dark spots, uneven skin tone and redness. This creates an even-toned, more reflective and brighter skin surface. Diamond Powder, Optical Diffusers and Soft Focus Silicone brightens the skin and creates an even tone. Biomimetic Peptide supports the skin's natural elastin and collagen.

We like the fact that this formula contains a clinically proven ingredient, but we do prefer, however, that a day serum should include at least five in order for it to really be effective. We also found that there are a few key ingredients missing in this formula, namely Willow Herb Flower, Electric Daisy Flower and Alpenrose. These ingredients assist with the promotion of skin cell rejuvenation and long-term cell repair. It should therefore not be left out of a day serum.

We are impressed by the fact that Elizabeth Arden does not perform any animal tests on their ingredients or formulations, nor do they ask others to test on their behalf. We could not find any information stating that their products are suitable for vegans, however.


3-4 drops of this serum should be applied to fingertips and smoothed onto neck and face. It is not clear how many times per day it should be applied.

This product does not have an airtight pump bottle. This is quite important as it protects the formula against contamination.

The Cost

This product can be purchased for $79.50. They do not currently offer any bulk purchasing options or discounts.


The company offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. This offer is only valid if the item is unused and in good condition. This does not give the client a fair chance to find out whether they are happy with their purchase or not - as they are not even allowed to open the product. This might mean that there are some concerns in terms of the effectiveness of their products.

Our Review Summary Of Skin Illuminating Brightening Day Serum

We like the fact that this product contains a clinically proven ingredient and that the company does not do animal testing.

We do prefer, however, that a day serum should contain at least five clinically proven and 10% active ingredients in order to be assured that it will show results.

When reading through the consumer reviews on the manufacturer's website, it is quite disappointing to note that many clients are unhappy with the packaging of the serum. They mention that the highly ineffective dropper makes it almost impossible to get the product out. For a product as expensive as this one, the packaging and delivery system should work.
