Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Nighttime Balm

Dozing Off Got Much Easier Thanks to Elizabeth Arden

Admitted: I'm part of the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream cult. I have the original Cream Skin Protectant ($20), the Intensive Lip Repair ($33), and the Nourishing Lip Balm Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 20 ($20) — and all three containers are on their way to being completely used up. In this frigid weather (#PolarVortex), these wonder-working, multitasking balms are keeping my skin from cracking and drying out. So I was thrilled when a jar of Elizabeth Arden's newest addition to the group landed on my desk. Said formula is dubbed the Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Nighttime Miracle Moisturizer ($39), and after using it for a few weeks, I can attest to the adjectives in its name. This before-bed remedy really works.

The nongreasy balm absorbs easily into the skin on your face, but it can also be used on elbows, knees, or other dehydrated body parts. It absorbs quickly, leaving a smooth finish, which can be attributed to nourishing ingredients like petrolatum and shea butter. Salicylic acid works as an exfoliator, while vitamin E is an antioxidant. But my favorite part of the recipe is the lavender extract, which gives it a spa-ready scent that helps me doze off better. Try it tonight, and don't blame me if you fall asleep before watching the end of Downton Abbey on DVR.
