I am pretty sure that the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Range needs no introduction, so I will jump right into talking about the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream x Love Heals Limited Edition.
Two products from the Eight Hour Range; the Original Skin Protectant (R299) and the Lip Protectant Stick SPF15 (R235) come in the Love Heals Limited Edition packaging. The packaging is bright and beautiful and brings a smile to my face!
The *Original Skin Protectant has cult status for good reason, it heals, protects, soothes and can even be used as a highlighter. Fun fact, it has been around for EIGHTY EIGHT YEARS! I mostly use it on my lips, but when needed I use it on my cuticles, on my feet as an overnight mask, to keep my brows tames and on my eyelids for a glossy look.
This was my first time trying the *Lip Protectant Stick, and I found it to be nice and handy, and although it isn’t as thick or gooey as the cream, it does a great job of hydrating dry lips, it has become my handbag essential.
I was also sent over a few other products from the Eight Hour Range.
I am loving the *All-Over Miracle Oil, which can be used on hair, body and face, although I prefer using it on my body only. It is a dry oil, so it doesn’t leave the skin with a greasy feel, it hydrates, and also smells amazing. I find it is best applied on damp skin and I love the spray, which makes it so easy to apply.
I love a good face mist, and I knew I would love the *Hydrating Mist. It is such a fine, glorious mist that I have been using after cleansing, before makeup and after makeup, and I love it. It soothes and hydrates and preps skin for the next steps.
Finally I have the *Sun Defense SPF 50. When I first tried this I thought it was quite thick and heavy, but it has grown on me, and I have been using it daily. It absorbs really well, doesn’t leave a greasy feel, doesn’t pill and most importantly doesn’t leave a white cast.
