Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Sun Defense Stick SPF 50

Memorial Day weekend is behind us, and a heatwave is here. I saw a lot of red faces around this week so far. Did you use your sunscreen?

I love to always have a stick SPF handy and the new  Eight Hour Cream Targeted Sun Defense Stick SPF 50 PA +++ from Elizabeth Arden fits the bill perfectly. ( No red faces in other words).

The stick uses the company's vaunted Eight Hour Cream  as the name says , and  I was worried this might too heavy for me and loaded with moisture. Not a bad thing, but not good for me with my oily, perspiring skin poolside.  Too much moisture in face SPFs  has led to breakouts but  I want heavy sun protection.

 I'm happy to say that the stick is not that  heavy or greasy at all. In fact it's less so than some I've used in the past.  It's less creamy  than I expected  but still conditions skin while providing high SPF.  It's just right, really and great for lips, eye area , nose ,  ears etc.

 It goes on clear and really doesn't need blending in. There's very little scent so it's perfect for everyone in the family and has the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation.

Arden says you get 8 hours of hydration  along with no PABA or oils, and it is
water-resistant and perspiration-resistant .

Available now for $ 20.00
