Mothers Day Gift Ideas - 2

We have an Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Gift Set today which is perfect contender for a last minute Mother's Day Gift. Especially for £20.95 at Cheapsmells.com, this is one not to miss out. 

It comes beautifully packaged in a white and red box with a red pull-out ribbon on the top. No need to gift wrap it I say. Just pop it into a gift bag and you're good to go.

It comes with an Eight Hour Skin Cream 50ml, Intensive Face Moisturizer SPF15 15ml & Hand Cream 30ml. They are all pretty good sizes for the price. I would only call the Hand Cream travel sized as I tend to use that more often than the others.

Otherwise, they are just your usual size tubes which if bought separately would cost a lot.

The Intensive Face Moisturiser is a light and fluffy face cream - on you can easily put on without thinking twice. It's consistency makes it really easy to wear. It absorbs in pretty quickly and gives a velvety finish to the face.

It has an SPF of 15 which of course is a bonus for the coming sunny days. This would be suitable for all skin times in my opinion besides very oily. This is one of Elizabeth Arden's best sellers and I have come across a tonne of mature women who swear by this.

My favourite is the 8 hours Skin Protectant to be honest. I am assuming not quite a lot of people would like this because of its unusual consistency. It is a slightly coloured gel and on melting forms an oil like consistency.

It goes without saying that this is very intense and is not meant to be used all over the face. I personally like to use this sparingly under the eyes, on very dry areas of the face, elbows, knees, lips and cuticles.

The key is to use less than a pea-sized amount at a time and it works wonders. Also, EA products have never broken me out so this would work on combination skin types too.

And lastly the 8 hour hand cream. It does what it says and stays on even after my hands come in contact with water. It gives my hands a lovely silicone-y finish, almost velvety on application and absorbs in quickly leaving no greasy residue which makes it easy to pop on to the hands daily.

This little tube has a lot of product squeezed into it but is still pretty dinky size-wise. A handbag staple!

The products are great individually and I am not the first one to be raving about them, however it is simply unbelievable when three of these lovelies retail for £20. I think this price includes UK delivery and it applies to all products on Cheapsmells which is freaking awesome don't you think?

Whether you're already a fan or not, for the price it surely deserves a try. Even better, as the brand is catered towards mature women, it makes an amazing deal to treat Mummy dearest on her special day on April 3rd.
