Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Moisture Network Night Cream Overview
Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Moisture Network Night Cream is an anti-wrinkle cream designed for overnight use. It works via an encapsulated time-release moisture mechanism, and also works as a barrier cream. The cream is gentle enough that it can be used every night.
The company’s official site is very sparse and provides only a basic description of the product, with no information regarding clinical trials, testimonials or even any pseudo-science. It’s likely that the site is relying mainly on its own global brand recognition and celebrity endorsements (including a prominent banner image of Catherine Zeta-Jones as the face of the Ceramide range). However, being a big-name brand, some of this information can be gleaned from other sites.
Elsewhere on the site, it does however state that Elizabeth Arden first developed a time-release Ceramide system for skin care nutrients in 1990, so this is a surprisingly old technology. The cream contains a mix of synthetic complexes and botanical extracts, and works to not only moisturize the skin but protect it from environmental damage. As Elizabeth Arden is a globally-recognized brand, the company can be contacted via phone, email or mail.
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Moisture Network Night Cream – Product Description
The cream’s main active ingredient is its “moisture network”, which features an encapsulated delivery system to allow a steady delivery of moisturizing agents throughout the night, while you sleep, and to retain and attract moisture to the skin. Algae Extract soothes and provides moisture, and Vitamin E acts as a soothing, moisturizing antioxidant.
With the brand-recognition of Elizabeth Arden also comes brand responsibility – the cream is stated on some vendor sites to have been dermatologically and clinically tested, but the results of this have not been made publically available. It’s stated on external sites that the skin should feel taut and firm and look brighter after use, but it’s not detailed until how long this would be. In addition, there is unfortunately no complete list of ingredients, but the site does have a brief discussion on the merits of
Ceramides in general. There are no hard scientific facts, but that the different Ceramides have specialized functions – strengthening the skin’s appearance, exfoliating and holding in moisture – and work by mimicking the skin’s own defense systems.
A single1.07oz jar of the cream costs $59, making it eligible for free domestic shipping. The site does offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, as well as an extensive FAQ regarding shipping and returns.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Moisture Network Night Cream – The Bottomline
For a product from a globally-recognized brand, it’s surprising that there are almost no online reviews of it to be found. However, the innovation of the time-release moisture network, the comparatively low price and the money-back guarantee cast only a positive impression on the cream, and being a recognized brand, it’s easy to find (and try) in offline stores.
