There's a lot to love about summer - especially morning dips in the ocean, spending balmy nights with your closest buddies, and eating Calippos for lunch. It truly is the most glorious time of the year.

With only two more weeks to go until the start of cool and crisp autumn, we were beyond excited to come across this video of fashion guru Nadia Fairfax for Elizabeth Arden to promote their Eight Hour Cream All-Over Miracle Oil - just click to play, you’ll understand why.


Sporting a natural beauty look (we love seeing her freckles peep through!), and showing off shimmering, sun-kissed limbs, it makes us feel like we can hang on to summer that little bit longer. 

You’ll notice that Nadia’s summer glow was created by spritzing some Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All–Over Miracle Oil over her body, and while the product works wonders to achieve that look, using it to hold onto that summer feeling comes with extra benefits, too.

Featuring a special blend of oils (think olive, avocado, sunflower seed and grapeseed), it’s designed to moisturise dehydrated skin in an instant. Want more? This all-purpose product can also add shine to your hair, soften cuticles, be used as a massage oil on tired limbs, and give you that radiant glow all over.

To use, just spritz it onto your face or body, and gently massage it in with your fingertips. If you’re applying it to your hair, just spritz a pump or two into the palms of your hands, and lightly apply it (on wet or dry hair) from the mid-lengths to your ends for up to twelve hours of hydration.

I love this oil as it just glides on like silk, soaks away any dryness, and seems to work like a guzzle of water for my skin when it feels dehydrated. I mist it over my face throughout the day, slick it on my body straight after that post-beach shower, and I even work it through my hair – the oil is amazing for sun-frazzled locks. Between this and my borderline OCD sun lotion applications, my skin doesn’t get the chance to suffer even on the hottest of days.
