This product right here is a vivid example of ‘the blogger made me buy it’ purchase. Prior to buying this Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour All-Over Miracle Oil, I have heard and seen a lot of it on social media and on some of my favourite blogs. And I have recently fallen in love with body oils, so I knew I had to buy it. And I didn’t just buy it, I made my mum buy it as well, lol..

I have used this product for weeks now and I have quite a lot to say about it but before I dive right into it, here is what Elizabeth Arden has to say about it:

Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour® All-Over Miracle Oil is a versatile, multi-tasking formula for the face, body and hair. Infused with Tsubaki oil, an ultra-hydrating ingredient that works to deliver long-lasting moisture, revealing radiant, healthy-looking skin with a firmer appearance.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. I like the packaging. I like when products come in a pump bottle.
  2. I love the fresh smell of this oil. It smells so good and the fragrance stays on for hours.
  3. I like the fact that I can use it all over my body – body, face, hair. Instead of buying 3 separate body oils, I just buy 1. Great to take away on holiday. It is a great multi-tasking product.
  4. My skin feels smooth and soft after each use.
  5. I get this glow after using the product.
  6. It has a dry oil texture and absorbs quickly, so not too oily for the face or hair.
  7. It is easily accessible in most stores for £29 for a 100ml bottle.

How to Get Summer-Ready Legs

It’s summer! And you know what that means? Time to bring out those lovely dresses, skirts and shorts…and of course, show off those legs!
Since your legs will likely be exposed during the summer, it’s important to get them looking fabulous. To get fabulous looking legs, you need to make prep them. Here are some steps you need to take to have your summer-ready legs.
1.    Get Rid of the Hair
If you want to flaunt good-looking legs during the summer, removing the unwanted hair off your legs is the first step. Waxing is a painful but common way of getting rid of the hair on legs. It can be done at a salon or from the comfort of your home using a wax strip. Another option is to use an epilator. Epilators are pretty handy. The process is not as messy and it’s so effective that it picks out the tiniest hair on your legs.

Another popular way of getting rid of the hair is by applying a hair removal cream. I currently use Veet Hair Removal Cream, and it works like magic, leaving me with smooth, hair free legs within minutes.
2.    Exfoliate
Now that your legs are hair free, the next step is to exfoliate. Exfoliation doesn’t only help remove traces of dried skin, it also helps to prevent ingrown hairs and bumpy skin. This will ensure that your skin feels nice and smooth.

To exfoliate, you can use exfoliating gloves. Slip your hand through the exfoliating glove and scrub your legs, preferably in circular motion. Take care not to apply too much pressure or scrub too long so you don’t hurt yourself. An alternative to exfoliating gloves is a scrub, which you can buy from the store or make yourself if you are feeling creative. Natural scrubs like the sea salt or Epsom salts make excellent scrubs. Apply the scrub on your legs and rub in circular motions. Don’t apply too much pressure while scrubbing or you could end up hurting yourself. And remember not to scrub for too long.

3. Use a Hard Skin Remover

If you have a hard skin remover, like an Emjoi Micro Pedi, this is the time to use it the most. These devices get rid of rough, dead skin, leaving your feet summer-ready.
4.    Moisturize
The next step is to moisturize your legs. Moisturizing helps to keep your skin soft, smooth and hydrated. The best time to apply a moisturizer is immediately after stepping out of the shower while your skin is still damp. This way, while applying moisturizer it will trap the water and keep your skin hydrated.
5.    Apply sunscreen
This is the final and most important step in getting your legs summer-ready. Your legs will be exposed to the rays of the sun. So, it is important to protect them from the harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays. Apply a generous amount of sunscreen on your legs after moisturizing.

These are my tips for summer-ready legs. Do you have any tips to share? Drop them in the comment section.
