Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour All-Over Miracle Oil


Elizabeth's Arden 8 Hour Cream is a staple in most women's make up kit. Although I am not fortunate to own one myself, I know about the wonders of this miracle cream. So when an email popped in my inbox detailing the beauty of the new Miracle Oil, I knew I had to give it a try.

Oh boy, I'm glad I did. I knew that this oil was meant to be multi-purpose, promising 'a versatile, multi-tasking formula for the face, body and hair' so I tried it on all three places.
I have been suffering with sensitive skin for a few months now, so I wasn't sure how my skin would react to the new product, however I was happily surprised. I applied it to my face every night before bed for a month, and my skin was left soft and felt nourished and refreshed - the gorgeous citrus scent helped too! It claims to reduce redness and irritation, which it definitely did in my case!

I also used it on my hair for a month too, to smooth it down and reduce flyaways - which I get a lot of. It definitely did this, and made the ends of my hair feel super conditioned which was nice, but it did therefore make my hair greasy a little bit quicker...although one should probably expect that if they're putting oil on their hair anyway!

Of course, I used it on my skin too. My hands are horrendous over the Winter period and I often get flare-ups of eczema due to the cold weather and central heating, which is irritating to say the least. So I used the 8 hour oil once a day - at least - I found my skin was in much better shape. I only had one little patch of eczema which is so much better compared to how I usually am over Winter!

Overall I'm incredibly pleased about this oil. At £29, no it isn't the cheapest out there, but with a product like this you definitely get what you pay for. If you can afford it, I recommend it. I've been using it for 6 weeks now and I still have over 3/4 of the bottle left!

Have you tried it? What did you think?

  1. I've been wondering about this oil as I use the skin protectant a lot and my skin loves it. I may end up going for this as a body moisturiser. :)

    1. Yeah it's amazing, I really recommend it :)
