A-listers and beauty editors alike have been raving about Elizabeth Arden’s Retinol Ceramide Capsules for years – in fact, brand ambassador Reese Witherspoon told Bazaar they "changed her skin".

Really, it's easy to see why these smart skincare pods have become such a firm favourite: with each single-use capsule containing a perfect portion of skin-boosting actives, they’re one of the easiest ways to reap the benefits of retinol without any of the guesswork. What's more, they're currently reduced as part of Amazon's annual Black Friday sale, meaning you can save 32 per cent on the regular price.

So, how exactly do they work? The secret lies in the advanced encapsulation technology, which means the retinol – easily degraded by light and air – inside each capsule is kept as potent as possible until the moment it reaches your skin.

In fact, the brand claims the formula is 76 per cent more potent than your average retinol serum. This clever process also means the serum can stay totally free from preservatives and fragrances and, as each capsule contains a single application, you’ll never waste a drop.

Used consistently for a month, this skincare game-changer can deliver a visible improvement to rough skin texture, as well as working to diminish fine lines and enlarged pores. It’s a brilliant all-rounder for every skin type: as the nourishing ceramides balance the drying effects of the retinol, they're even ideal for sensitive skin.

If you're looking to upgrade the rest of your routine this Black Friday, you're in luck, as there are several other stellar Elizabeth Arden products to consider. The Advanced Ceramide Daily Youth Restoring Capsules are currently reduced by a remarkable 40 per cent, making a 30-day supply just £23.40. Water-free and highly potent, they're ideal for older skin that has lost elasticity and become prone to dryness. For a completely classic all-rounder, pick up the inimitable 8 Hour Cream, which is almost half-price right now (and can be used everywhere, from your face to your fingertips).
