Elizabeth Arden: Best Products and Ultimate Brand Overview

Elizabeth Arden is one of the most well-known and well-loved American beauty exports in the world. Since its founding in the 20th century by entrepreneur Elizabeth Arden, the  eponymous brand has gone on to introduce some of the most innovative skincare products in the world, especially when it comes to anti-ageing skincare. 

To celebrate the arrival of Elizabeth Arden at Questmoor, we’ve created the ultimate Elizabeth Arden brand overview. Whether you want to find the best Elizabeth Arden products or simply better understand the ethos behind the brand, we’ve got everything covered. 

What is Elizabeth Arden?

Elizabeth Arden is an American beauty brand, established in 1910 by entrepreneur Elizabeth Arden. Arden started out developing skincare products, before branching into fragrance, and cosmetics.

To this day, Elizabeth Arden maintains a cult following both in the UK and across the world. You can find an Elizabeth Arden beauty counter in almost any department store in the UK, a testament to the long-running success of the brand. 

What kind of products does Elizabeth Arden sell?

Skincare Products

From cleansers to beauty balms, Elizabeth Arden began with skincare, and it remains one of the most popular and best-selling offerings from the brand to this day. Recently, the brand has become synonymous with high-tech anti-ageing skincare products.


While the original Elizabeth Arden spa started out offering skincare treatments, Arden herself quickly began designing and producing cosmetics. From lipsticks to mascaras, cosmetics are now an integral component in the Elizabeth Arden range. 


Elizabeth Arden has two iconic fragrances synonymous with the brand; Red Door and Blue Grass, which maintain cult followings even in 2022. The Elizabeth Arden fragrance range now contains over thirty perfumes, including 5th Avenue, Provocative, and Sunflowers.  

Why is Elizabeth Arden so popular?

Despite the high levels of competition when it comes to beauty brands and skincare products, Elizabeth Arden remains one of the most dominant beauty brands in the world. Here are just a few reasons why:


Ever since the launch of their Advanced Ceramide Capsules in 1990, Elizabeth Arden has paved the way when it comes to anti-ageing skincare innovation. Using their famous Ceramides Complex and potent antioxidant Idebenone, Elizabeth Arden garnered a cult-following with their unique and unorthodox approach to skincare.  

Iconic branding

From their shiny serum capsules to their iconic red-door perfume bottle, Elizabeth Arden understands the power of their branding. While some formulas have been changed to reflect the advances in new skincare technology, Elizabeth Arden products retain their iconic New York City look - and fans of the brand seem to love it. 

High quality

Another reason beauty lovers remain dedicated to the Elizabeth Arden brand: quality. Not only are Elizabeth Arden products manufactured and designed with safe ingredients, the quality of the products on offer is consistently exceptional. 

Just a brief look at any Elizabeth Arden skincare reviews online can help illustrate why the brand is so loved: it delivers results, every time. 

Best Elizabeth Arden Products

So, what are the best Elizabeth Arden products? Elizabeth Arden has won several beauty awards for her skincare products and cosmetics, and we’ve listed the highlights below:

Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules

Back in 1990, Elizabeth Arden revolutionised anti-ageing skincare with their Advanced Ceramide Capsules. By turning serums into capsule form, the brand was one of the first in the beauty business to consider sustainability when it came to skincare packaging.

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Hydrating Serum Primer

Enriched with hyaluronic acid, Elizabeth Arden’s Flawless Start Hydrating Serum Primer is one of their newest and most viral-worthy skincare products. 

As a non anti-ageing product, this primer introduced many young users to the Elizabeth Arden brand. Designed to plump up, hydrate and give the skin a radiant glow, this primer has proved most popular amongst young users and under 30s. 

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Foundation

One of the cosmetic products most synonymous with the Elizabeth Arden brand, their Flawless Finish foundation has been a cult favourite since it was first introduced to the range. With 24 hour coverage and the help of plumping hyaluronic acid, this foundation has long been a hit for those with mature skin. 

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant

A one-in-all beauty miracle, Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant remains one of Elizabeth Arden’s best selling products. Eight Hour Cream is essentially several beauty products in one: it can be used to soften dry skin, condition the nails and cuticles, shape your eyebrows, and even slick down your hair.

With endless possibilities for use, Eight Hour Cream is one of the most famous, loved, and award-winning Elizabeth Arden products in the range.


Is Elizabeth Arden cruelty free? 

While Elizabeth Arden themselves don’t test on animals during their manufacturing process, they distribute their products in China. In China, all beauty products are subject to mandatory animal testing, as per Chinese law

I have young skin - can I use Elizabeth Arden? 

Absolutely! While there are many anti-ageing products in the Elizabeth Arden range, there are equally as many skincare products for young skin, as well as a wide range of cosmetics and fragrances. 

How do you use Elizabeth Arden skin care?

Each Elizabeth Arden product is different, and each is used in a different way. The best way to use your Elizabeth Arden products correctly is to read the packaging label and follow the given instructions.

Is Elizabeth Arden expensive?

While notions of ‘expensive’ may differ from person to person, the adage “you get what you pay for” applies when it comes to skincare. While some products in the Elizabeth Arden range are expensive, it’s because they use unique and potent active ingredients in their formulas.
