I’m absolutely addicted to anything that I can apply before bed. Give me a lotion, potion or oil I can slap onto my person before slipping between the sheets and I’m in; it seems logical to capitalise on those precious hours of downtime and give your body a chance to absorb the benefits of creams, serums, lotions and oils. Although there are a tonne of concoctions in my bedside table, this little jar is really something special. Formulated to complement the traditional Eight Hour Cream (which helps to seriously hydrate and nourish tired, parched and even broken skin – it’s great for burns, eczema and all sorts of skin conditions) this nighttime formula helps to replensish skin and seal-in moisture for up to eight hours. The Nighttime Miracle Moisturizer even features a touch of lavender to lull your senses and allow you to awaken to supple, radiant and revitalised
If you’re not a fan of the original then you probably won’t like this either, but if you’re into your Eight Hour Creams then this could become a new fave. It’s much lighter than the traditional heavy (and sometimes greasy) cream, allowing you to really work it into skin and massage the goodness beneath the surface. It doesn’t absorb instantly as they claim, but it’s gone within about five minutes so you don’t stick to your pillow or cause a mess. The richness of the texture really helps to target dry areas and nourish parched skin, without overloading it with too much and causing breakouts – just use it sparingly!
Although I don’t use this all over, I have been using it on my cheeks and forehead (where I’m dryest) and around the nose after I caught the sniffles. My boyfriend even uses it on his eczema-prone skin and definitely notices a difference the following morning in both tone and texture; I massage any excess into hands and reap the benefits of an intense hand cream too. It’s so easy to use, multi-functional and helps you to drift off to sleep too – bonus. At £32.00 for this massive pot (which will last you so long it’s ridiculous) it’s relatively affordable too. It’s no surprise I’ve made it my product of the week to celebrate it in all its glory!
The Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Nighttime Miracle Moisturizer is available at counters nationwide and online, priced £32.00 for a 50ml pot.
