There are some beauty products that seem so, well, indulgent, and yet I still love them so. The new Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist takes all the intense moisturising and multi-asking properties of iconic Eight Hour Cream and puts them into an ‘instantly invigorating facial spray’ which will hydrate, soothe and refresh.
Of course, I don’t NEED it, but I just WANT it! I love the idea of sitting on the plane next week on my Easter break, spritzing myself (and probably my very reluctant husband!) with this.
Powered by an antioxidant rich Superfruit Blend that gives skin a wee boost when it needs it, this spray has soothing extracts as well, and each mist helps cool and calm skin on contact, whilst moistursing.
The superfruit blend contains acai, goji, mangosteen, noni, pomegranate and coffee seed extracts that collectively deliver antioxidant protection.
It also contains Aloe Juice for soothing and moisturising, Apple Leaf Extract, for soothing and comforting irritated skin, reducing the appearance of redness and blotchiness. Glycerin, which is a powerful humectant, drawing moisture to the skin, Sodium PCA, a naturally occurring humectant that helps attract and bind moisture, and a Skin Identical Carbohydrate Complex which helps to improve skin’s overall softness and smoothness.
Uplifting in every way, the formula is delicately fragranced with a blend of lemon water, rose and bergamot. Use it on all skin types – including sensitive – and in many ways.
Use in the morning to help you feel more awake, use post-shower for a healthy glove, on-the-go, as a pick-me-up for skin, after a long day for a burst of energy, in the middle of the day as a touch-up – spray the face and gently pat with a brush or sponge to revitalise your look, to avoid the horrible tightness up in the sky with that ultra-dry cabin air, post workout, or to set your makeup, preventing a dry, overly matte look.
See? Totally justifiable purchase!
