What I say: Okay, so basically this is Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream in aerosol! Big words coming from me – the BIGGEST Eight Hour fan on the planet.
I’ve long been a fan of the Vichy and Uriage Thermal Sprays, and this one is right up there with them!
I had surgery two weeks ago, and this has worked a treat at reducing redness and itchiness on my scars.
It also makes a great makeup setting spray as well as a general refresher during the day. I can’t wait to use it to cool down in the height of summer.
Most bizarre of all is the frizz trick. You would think that adding water to frizzy hair would make it worse, but it doesn’t! It really does calm and smooth it.
If you aren’t a fan of the texture of Eight Hour Cream, this may be your new best friend.
