The Winter is not kind to my skin, Scotland is seldom warm (let's not forget those two sunny days we had in July eh? Oh how we are spoiled) and as a result we often rely on artificial heat. Those two words, comforting on paper but the cause of many a dried out complexion and scaly patch - sexy, I know. I find it fairly straight forward in treating my complexion, my face, dry patches and all stares back at me daily as a constant reminder to moisturise; the skin on my body is so easily forgotten about, what with all the layers of clothing and all. What if I could recommend a body treatment that will cocoon your skin in continuous moisture, taking care of the roughest skin and one that doesn't need to be applied daily? Hopefully you'd say tell me more?
Well my somewhat secret weapon against dehydrated skin, to treat, comfort, smooth and moisturise is Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturizing Body Treatment. Yep the multi-tasking balm we have all relied on in the past has been combined with a luxuriously, rich body lotion to create Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturizing Body Treatment. Best described, well as far as texture goes at least is to compare it to a liquidised body butter - this is not a runny, thin, lotion, this is a rich, comforting and quick to absorb body moisturiser. If you don't like to mess around in between showering and dressing, this is the body treatment for you. There is no greasy residue, no long dry down, just quick skin softening moisture - what more could you ask for?
Well, like the gift that keeps on giving as Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturizing Body Treatment is almost like a body balm, it locks in moisture meaning you can skip they odd day. I can personally vouch that I only apply this every second or third day and my skin has never been softer, and yes that does include those pesky, forever dry areas such as my knees and elbows. Yes at £26/200ml this is undoubtedly expensive but as you don't need to use it daily and a little does go a long way, it could result in being a fairly economical purchase?
