Elizabeth Arden streamlined its skincare a year or so ago, simplifying its offer and making it all a lot easier to buy products from the brand’s counters. A great idea in theory, but then we came up against the wall of much-loved stuff being discontinued, and no one likes that.

One of Arden’s many hero products was its Good Night’s Sleep moisturiser, instantly recognisable in its blue glass pot. There was a bit of a furor about its discontinuation which is why I think there may be a bit of a nod to it in this March-launching doofer, part of the Eight Hour range.

Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Nighttime Miracle Moisturiser, is, for starts, a night cream, so score one there. The biggest thing though is that it boasts a lavender fragrance, which was Good Night’s Sleep’s USP. Nice work EA. 

The new Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Nighttime Miracle Moisturiser offers super-hydrating benefits in a gel-cream texture. It essentially does this by using ingredients like shea butter and Vitamin E to moisturise and provide antioxidant benefits while salicylic acid refines texture. The can infuse thanks to a barrier ingredient of 2% dimethicone, a fine silicone, which acts as a seal to intensely moisturise.

It sounds nice, as it happens. I have no Irish price info or launch date yet so as ever, watch this space.
