My 2019 faves from Elizabeth Arden

Are you Keeping Up With Christmas in November? I hope that you have been enjoying the giveaways, because today we have another AMAZING one from one of my faves!!! If you’re a long time reader, you know the love for Elizabeth Arden is strong! In today’s post, I want to share my faves from the brand in 2019. There are going to be products in this post that do not need a reintroduction, because they appear so frequently… Some of you will be yelling: Just get a room with the Eight Hour mist already Simone!! Grab a cuppa, enjoy, and don’t forget to read to the end, so you can stand a chance to win some of my favourite products of 2019!

Eight Hour Miracle Mist

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist

This refreshing facial mist instantly awakens the skin with a soothing touch of hydration in an ultra-fine spray. Powered by our superfruit blend, rich in antioxidants and vitamins, it leaves skin feeling reinvigorated and looking healthy.

I have been a fan of this mist for YEARS now and have repurchased it over and over….I won’t be without it. The mist, I use to refresh my parched skin on the side of the sports field, I use it to soften any powdery-ness after setting my foundation and I use it as ‘magic spray’ to pretend it cures kid ailments. #TrueStory 

Eight Hour Great 8 Moisturizer

Elizabeth Arden Great 8 Daily Defense Moisturiser

More than a moisturizer, Great 8™ is your all-in-one solution for healthy-looking, glowing skin. More than a moisturizer, Great 8™ is packed with 8 great benefits designed to protect and perfect the look of skin. Protects against the damaging effects of sunlight, blue light, infrared and pollution, as it hydrates, purifies, brightens and fights excess oil. 

I didn’t think that anything could replace my beloved Hydragel Moisturiser, but Elizabeth Arden knocked it out of the park in 2019 with this launch! This moisturizer is so lightweight, with a SPF and perfect as a day cream AND a primer. A 2 in 1…well actually an 8 in 1! I already have a backup of this one!

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour® Lip Protectant Stick SPF 15

This moisturizing stick with SPF 15 helps prevent sunburn and relieve chapped, cracked lips due to dryness, leaving them soft, smooth, and protected. 

I’ve been a fan of this lip balm since I received it. It has such a smooth consistency and doesn’t feel like thick jelly on the lips. Also the addition of a SPF had me sold, because I want SPF in everything I put on my body!

Elizabeth Arden White Tea

Elizabeth Arden White Tea (Original)

White Tea is a refined essence with a clean sophistication. A serene landscape layered with bold light. Silky, vibrant, warm. Bursts of mandarin orange trailing into soft, woody musk. Feminine and persuasively soft.

I was hooked by this scent at an Elizabeth Arden counter about a year ago. When it arrived at my doorstep I was ecstatic! This scent is so sophisticated, but light at the same time. I am a sucker for any citrus notes in a fragrance, and this just combines two of my favourites…..citrus and musk! With a recent giveaway with one of these fragrances, you gals went bananas! I had no idea White Tea was such a cult favourite… I know why, and I reckon I’d been living under a rock!


I always have to edit myself with these posts, because I am so obsessed with just about everything I have tried from this brand. As a result, I am going to stop now and get to the good stuff…..THE GIVEAWAY worth over R2 200! With Christmas in November in full swing, you stand a chance of winning an Elizabeth Arden hamper featuring ALL my faves listed above, as well as a Grand Entrance mascara.
