Review: Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Lotion

Ahoy there, my lovelies! I am segueing back into the world of blogging after returning from my adventures overseas in the West Coast of the U-S-A, bringing back some exciting news with me as well as my usual stash of crunchy Cheetos - but that's another story for another time... 

Today's post is shining the spotlight on one of my new skincare must-haves:

The Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Lotion - Ta Dah! 

I received this sample when I attended the House of Fraser Christmas Press day, and I started using it pretty much the moment I got it in hand as I had been finding the moisturiser  I was using too heavy for my temperamental skin. Well, it was love at first swatch - from the delicious smell (like clementines) to only having to use a teensy amount to get the job done - two big plusses for a girl who spends at least 90% of her day thinking about food, and living on a beauty budget!

However, what made this attraction more than just a short lived infatuation can be noted in three points:
1) It's an oil-free lotion, resulting in keeping my combination skin well hydrated and super soft without making my face extra oily - no easy feat I can tell you (along with about 20 half empty moisturiser bottles)!
2) I love how simple it is to apply - it just glides on, soaks in, and poof! You are ready to apply make-up, no waiting around for it to soak all the way in.
3) I've saved a bit of money by being able to use this moisturiser as a 2in1 primer - It has kept my make up in place all day with minimal shininess breaking through.

This was my first try with Elizabeth Arden products, and I am impressed, so impressed I have ordered the rest of the Visible Difference for Combination Skin Starter Kit (£15 on look Let's see if the rest of the products can live up to the lotion...
