A few weeks ago I had the awesome opportunity of attending the Blog Meets Brand event. At the event I received a mini makeover, courtesy of the girls over at Elizabeth Arden. I was also introduced to some Elizabeth Arden products I generally did not use, but was very interested to find out more about. I’m hitting the big 3-0 this year, and now is a better time than ever to start thinking about what my skin will look like as I age. Ugh, I can’t believe I just said that, but it is what it is. We all age, and we will inevitably get wrinkles, so why not trick time just a little bit longer and take care of the skin we live in?
I’ve heard of Ceramide, but never used them- until I was introduced to Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum. These little capsules pack a punch with just the right amount of ceramide, hydration and essential lipids that maintain the youthful appearance in your skin. A little bit goes a long way, and although I have not used them long enough to see a big difference in my skin yet, I do love the silky smooth feel of this serum on my skin.
In 1930, Elizabeth Arden created the Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant and the formula is still the same! For something to remain unchanged all these years, the folks over at Elizabeth Arden must be doing something right! This cream is perfect for the driest hands in the winter, or chapped lips any time of year. It’s a must-have item from the Elizabeth Arden product line! (hint hint, teachers LOVE this stuff!)
My absolute favorite and personal must have is the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss. I tried this out at the event for the first time and was sent my own lip gloss to review, and I love it! I loved the non-sticky feel and the beautiful colors that were designed for any skin color, outfit, or makeup choice. The lip gloss offers a gorgeous shine with moisturizers and a light scent.

Rebecca Restrepo’s Tips:
Skincare is even more important when traveling. I love multi-use products and ones that can be packed in a carry-on bag. The Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum deliver so much moisture. I apply mine mid-flight for extra hydration and also use as a makeup primer when traveling.
Skin can get very dehydrated when flying, so Eight Hour Cream is essential! I apply to my lips before every flight and use it on my hands and elbows throughout flight. I like to warm up the product in the palms of my hands before applying to my skin, helping it activate and absorb quickly.
Someone once told me that solids travel better than liquids, so now I never go anywhere without my Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup. It provides as much coverage as I need, without making a mess in my makeup bag.
Before I land after a long flight, the perfect pick-me-up is a touch blush to brighten the cheeks, a swipe of brightening shadow to open the eye and a dab of rosy lip gloss. To achieve this fresh and well-rested look, Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar, Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Innocence and Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Sweet Pink are my go-to products.
