The older I become the more fussy I have become, I know I'm still only in my early twenties
but my tastes have changed dramatically over the years and I have become obsessed with multi-purpose products particularly for my travel bag.

For years I have sworn off Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream deeming it to be too thick and sticky
despite various family members swearing by it and often inflicting it upon me.
Well with age comes wisdom (in my head i'm at least 85) and nowadays I can not be without the
strange medicinal scented golden balm.

You see not only does Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream soothe and heal cracked winter lips like no other
but it can also be used on any broken skin what so ever, one trick passed down through my family is
to dab it on those pesky shaving cuts and allow it too calm, heal and dull the pain.
My cousin uses it on her facial eczema to squash any irritation and to remove the itch such skin disorder
often comes hand in hand with, it also removes the rough feeling of eczema without being harsh.
My grandmother uses Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream on her hands as she is a keen gardener
and my best friend who is never off long haul flights swears by it as an express facial mask.
Both have smooth, baby soft skin so who am I to argue.

One thing is for sure that all beauty cabinets need a pot or tube of Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream,
it can be used in so many ways that you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.
And yes the scent and balm like texture do take some getting used too haha!
