Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart SPF50 Hydrating Shield

Living in London, it is no surprise to find that pollution takes it toll on my skin and brands are now making it part of their attire as new and exciting products hit the shelves. Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart has really made a name for itself across social media this week and it is a product I absolutely love, have done so since it arrived a good few weeks ago and it is something I have worn every single day. With five years of hard work going into making a product, I have no doubt that it is every bit as good as it claims to be.

I think we all know that sun protection is something we must all protect our skin against and I am hoping it is something we all do on a daily basis! Prevage isn't just about sun protection, it is a whole lot more than that, it is about protecting your skin all year round from pollutants which play havoc on our skin and age it. There is a lot of science to read surrounding this product which you can find here but for me, it is a must read. 


So Prevage City Smart has is referred to as a Triple Action Protection technology and it delivers younger, healthier and more resilient skin in three phases:

Protect - Anti-pollution Shield Technology forms an invisible protective barrier to help prevent harmful toxins and pollution particles from penetrating the skin. So it essentially captures those nasty little toxins and prevents them from getting into your pores, so when you come home and double cleanse, those nasty germs, dirt and grime are washed off your skin. It also protects with 100% Mineral Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen, which I love. It doesn't make your skin feel clogged up on application and nor does it have the thickness, greasiness and general horrible feeling of a sunscreen on your face.

Prevent - A potent patent-pending Anti-Pollution Complex alongside Green Tea, Thiotaine, Ferulic Acid and L-Carnosine come together to neutralise free radical damage which is caused by UV Exposure and pollution. City Smart also helps to prevent the appearance of future signs of skin ageing, including lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

Strengthen - A DNA Enzyme Complex works to strengthens skin’s natural defenses using purified enzymes which helps protect against free radical damage and supports skin's natural repair process against oxidative stress. So City Smart helps protect the skins elastin and collagen matrix therefore ensuring the natural recovery process is strengthened resulting in healthier and more resilient looking skin.

To use City Smart you simply apply it as the last step of your skincare regime. It has a slight tint to it which I really really like.  It gives a really light coverage and as someone with slight redness to my cheeks, it actually does a pretty amazing job at covering it up.  You can wear this alone or under makeup and because the texture is so light, it doesn't cake on the skin and to be honest you do forget it is there.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart is available now and is priced at £55, which in my opinium is great value for money considering how amazing it is.

  17. I have never tried any Elziabeth Arden products but always hear good things about them. One of these days I will purchase one, although they seem to be really good for the money it is still quite expensive so not something I would buy on a regular basis.
