I’ve been using Elizabeth Arden products for years, starting with their iconic Eight Hour Cream becoming an essential part of my makeup kit at twenty years old. With this in mind I was excited to meet the people behind the brand. Time for a refresh, see what they’re up to

I first came across Arbonnewhen I worked with Kim Mellor who just happens to be one of Arbonne’s independent consultants. Always on the look out for new beauty brands my ears were pinned back when she said 100% vegan, pure and cruelty free and acompany that was committed to being eco-friendly.
