I really like this product and one capsule is the equivalent of 2 doses for me.
Can anyone tell me what is the different between these "pink" Advanced Time Complex capsules and the "gold" Youth Code Serum capsules? I can't seem to find descriptions of the pink capsules on EA website, so I'm guessing maybe this is a discontinued/older product and their new version is the gold.
Given that these are individually packed with no preservatives, I'm guessing it's still fine to use even if the product is older?
Hope someone out there knows! :)

So I saw these amazingly packaged single serving ceramide capsules on the elizabetharden.com website and was sold. They looked so awesome and I was about to go on my yearly trip to London for a month visiting family and wanted to come back looking refreshed.
So testure wise: It feels a little greesy putting it on but don't let this fool you, once it gets rubbed in it actually feels quite nice. I was hoping for a lot more from this product than I got. I have lines around my eyes that I want to be gone!! I didn't see a change in my complexion besides a tiny bit of irritation and stinging every time I put it on (which I presumed to be a good thing like it might be working) but unfortunately for the 120 dollars I paid, I didn't see results like I hoped for.
I don't want to bash this because I have some friends that love it and I do love the brand but these weren't for me :(

These are perfect..
They have anti-irritants, antioxidants, and the packing protects these ingredients.The oils feel very silky, and one capsule is enough to cover your face.

I have combo skin and bought this for my dry forhead and normal cheeks to protect me with the new fall weather change. It says it doesn't clog pores but that is not true. I got a big pimple on my cheek and one near my eyebrow. I NEVER BREAK OUT IN THESE AREAS. I should know not to trust what labels say (not like they are regulated - what a society)

No idea why this is rated 4.2..absolutely no idea. Unless I bought a counterfeit product (unlikely), this is the worst thing I have ever bought. Absolute worst. As a moisturizer? Average. For fine lines? No effects, not even average. I can't believe it, makeupalley...4.2 ?
I will use the rest of it to moisturize my feet..

The serum leaves my skin glowing. I noticed a difference after only a few days! I use morning and evening under moisturizer. It goes on oily but sinks in after a minute without leaving skin greasy. No breakouts, and my skin is plump and moisturized. Expensive, but worth it!

Well, I've been using this product for over a year now, and I got the full package of capsules for face and eyes and I loved them, actually I am 31 now and I have a combo skin and wanted something to maintain my complexion as I don't have any wrinkles or fine lines, this product was good for me and I only use it for once or twice a week in weekends it really gives a glow into my face in the morning, it's not a magical product but good for those who do not have any kind of troubles on their skin.

I tried these capsules for 2 nights before realising that my skin didnt really like what was in them! I woke with red irritated skin that was also somehow dry and tight. The oil itself sunk into my skin really well, and didnt irritate at the time before I went to sleep but something must be happening a few hours after for me to wake with a red face! Doh! :(

I tried this product years ago when samples were being given out in the stores. I remember I kept going back to get the samples. LOL
They made my face feel wonderful (smooth) and it made my make up go on smoother. Sadly they were too expensive for me to buy at the time.
Skip ahead to years later and when asked what I wanted for Christmas I told hubby these. I saw them on sale.
Since I have been using them, my face feels smoother and any lines and redness on my face have gone away. People think I am the same age as my friend who is ten years younger than I am.
I used to have a few wrinkles, and with this stuff the wrinkles are gone. Yes at first when you put this on your face, it feels oily and greasy, but after about 10 minutes, you can put on a moisturizer like Alveeno and then your make up. My face feels and looks the best it ever has looked. I love these capsules. They are expensive which is why I rated price at one point (almost $3 a capsule) Sadly I was told by the company they will be selling the gold ones to replace these, which are even more expensive, but apparently they are suppose to have better things in them now and are suppose to be better???

Wow, what an amazing product! I thought this was for older women, but boy was I surprised when I finally tried them! Someone told me try them because it actually made their skin less sensitive, and it really did work for me! The redness is significantly better, and my skin just seems to get better and better the more I use them. I LOVE the hygenic biodegradable capsules, and they are perfect for travel. I also just found out that they are not only great as a serum, but also leave a dewy finish when used over makeup! It's a great way to also freshen your make-up mid-day. Don't be scared of the initial shine when you apply it on your face. Your skin literally DRINKS this stuff in and it will thank you for it!

I use this product as a serum. I really enjoy this product. I like the packaging, how it comes in little like beads that you break open. I like to just open it and use half of the serum in the morning, save the capsule (Sometimes I reseal it by heating a tweezers with a lighter and using that to melt the coating of the bead closed), and use the rest of the capsule at night. You can easily get 2 uses per day out of this capsule. It hydrates moderately well. I would actually prefer it to be a bit thicker. This was recommended for my skin type based on a dermatologist's book. I will probably repurchase this, though I am trying other, cheaper, serums since this one is so expensive.

I got a generous sample of these ceramide capsules (for the face) that I was able to sample it for a month. I am 45 now and I don't have much lines modesty aside.. This product does great things for me from day one. I used the ceramide capsules for the eyes before I tried this and I was impressed with that product too so I didn't hesitate to try this one though it looked a bit oily when I first opened a capsule. The oil disappeared into my face after few seconds and doesnt feel oily at all. If anything, it was instantly smooth and soft. The next morning when i woke up it looked even better. When I'm not really allergic to a product my face doesn't react until about a week. It would actually work fabulously on that first week. After a week, that would be the acid test, if the product stopped working or if its giving me negative reactions like breakouts or bumps. All was well after a week and up to now on my 2nd month it's working wonders on my skin. My skin looks really smooth and radiant. A lot of people noticed my skin looks plump and tight to think that I also lost weight which usually makes skin look saggy. I bought 2 jars that was on sale because I know this is going to be a keeper. Great product. I'm glad I read the reviews, analyzed and tried. Maybe it's not for everyone but it's for me :-)

My DSPW complexion loves these, soaks up the moisture and plumps up. Another real plus - they do not cause burning/stinging nor do they cause my chin to break out with little white bumps like most moisturizers do. Will definitely repurchase. I found mine on Amazon, 90 capsules for about $35.

Too oily and probably not for me
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Red, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
My face loves these and my wallet hates them. should be 5 stars but I took away one star b/c of price. I noticed results almost immediately... within a couple of days my skin was 'almost' glowing and looked and felt so soft. I did use them day and night for a week straight to jumpstart my results, although I think you are only suppose to use them at night under moisturizer. I actually do look younger IMHO. I did not have alot of lines to begin with but my overall appearance has gotten softer. And to prove my point a man at least 15 years younger hit on me today which has not happened in years...LOL!!! I will be buying these again even if it means my children have to starve;-)!!!

It is too greasy for oily skin people. I only used it in the winter nights and it still break me out. I gave this away.

I'm not sure about it's anti-aging effects, but this complex really calms my very reactive and sensitive skin. When I break out I always use these capsules morning and evening after cleaning my skin to increase the reactivity.

(How happens I never reviewed this before?)
Well I am a believer! I ddiscovered this awesome product some 10 years ago. I was very reluctant at the time as I always had combo skin (w/a problematic T-zone) and I thought this was a treatment for "mature" skin.
At the time I had been given a sample pack good for 1 week, I recall being impressed as it NEVER broke me out and my skin was drinking this magical potion.
I bought a full size this time - jar of the little pink capsules and I am absolutely happy.
I use it in a 2 months cure (60 capsules, I use one each night) in winter, I still have combo skin but as I am a bit older now, my skin is benefitting even more from the EA Ceramide Capsules.
I wake up to a radiant, plump, baby soft skin. I love it!!
Don't be mislead by its apparent "greasyness": It has an oil base, but these are good oils that your skin will literally DRINK and will NOT sit on top.
You will be amazed at how good your skin will look.
I know this product has now been replaced by the "gold" version.
Not sure why they had to improve it (as the original EA Ceramide capsules are that good) but I will review separately in case I try that new version!

This looks scary because it's so oily, but it works! My skin feels soft in the morning and it only takes a few minutes for it to be absorbed. It doesn't sit on my skin like PC's super antioxidant concentrate. I love that it doesn't contain preservatives and that it's so hygienic. Too bad it's so expensive!
