Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All-Over Miracle Oil Review
This spritz on moisturiser has been getting quite a lot of blog/magazine space since it's launch and now that I've used it myself I can certainly see why. Spay-on body moisturisers are probably my favourite products for fuss free application and Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All-Over Miracle Oil really takes the cakes on all counts. Scented with a more subtle citrus-floral version of the original 8 hour cream fragrance, the oil spray has been getting quite the work out since I received it as I apply it liberally to my limbs when I'm fresh out of the shower, spritz a little into the ends of my hair when I fancy it and pretty much spray it on my skin randomly whenever I darn well feel like it.
The product is made up of a variety of oils including Tsubaki Oil (I'd never heard of it either) which contains a high concentration of Omegas 6 and 9 as well as Grape Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil and Sunflower Seed Oil. The Miracle Oil is infused with Ginger Root extract that is said to aid in improving the texture and tone of the skin, Vitamin E, Rosemary extract and Boswellia Resin which is an anti-inflammatory that soothes red or unhappy skin.
On the skin, it has a sort of dry-oil feel and it doesn't feel sticky or uncomfortable, which is always a major bonus, especially as Spring is (allegedly) here and we all start to ease up on the use of heavy body creams.
Though the All-Over Miracle Oil is in fact designed to be used all over, I am yet to put this on my face. Yes, the bottle is emblazoned with For Face, Body and Hair, but I am pretty hesitant to spray this anywhere near my face. I might even go as far to say that I have an irrational fear of using it on my face. If you have this and you use it on your face, please let me know!
Overall, Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream All-Over Miracle Oil is one of those impressive multitasking beauty bits that you'll want in your handbag/bathroom/cabin luggage (it's 100ml, hoorah) for whenever you need a little hydrating boost. I'm loving using it now and I just know it's going to be a favourite during summer to add a bit of glow to my arms and legs.
It's £29 at any Elizabeth Arden retailer including Look Fantastic - I got mine as a free gift when I subscribed to Harper's Bazaar ;)
