I think you’ll be hearing a lot about the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Oil. It’s slotted in under the 8 Hour tag because it’s a multi-functional product, but it doesn’t have the same ingredients as other 8 Hour products. Not sure that’s wise, or even particularly clear for 8 Hour fans, but there you go. However, it is a lovely oil. I’m hesitant with a lot of multi-purpose oils, especially when it comes to putting it in my hair – what seems like a very enriching oil for the body or face doesn’t necessarily translate to hair and can really weigh it down.
So, to cut a long story short, the big sell on this is Tsubaki oil, derived from the Camellia flower, which is rather a hot ingredient, not least because it’s grown off the coast of Korea and anything Korean is a trend right now. It’s apparently a popular beauty treatment in both Japan and Korea for its anti-inflammatory, smoothing and soothing effects thanks to high content of Omegas 6 and 9.
In use, I would say it feels more natural to put the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Oil on my face than my body – and not at all in my hair, but I haven’t given that one a go yet, so who knows? What I do know is that grape seed oil, vitamin E, olive, avocado and sunflower seed oils are all beautifully hydrating and I loved the feel of it on my skin.
