Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant - Review

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!

  1. i love eight hour cream and could not live without it. Long flights, dry lips, worn it as a night cream when my skin has been particularly trying. It's my fave. Also helped me heal up a wee burn a treat a while back. Will deff be trying the shaving one! x

  2. I've wanted to try this for years now and i've even had it in my hands in the shop ready to purchase it but for some reason i always put it back, even when its on sale! I'm just not sure if i'll get much use out of it as i'll probably only use it on my lips.

  3. This looks great i love the eight hour creams!)

  4. I completely brushed this product off as nonsense, but after i won a tube in a competition I've never looked back and family members keep appearing for a pea sized amounts to heal their gaze/chapped lips etc Never be without a tube too! x

  5. I have always wanted to try this but never actually willed myself to buy it!
    I have a beauty blog and it would be awesome if you could check it out!

  6. always wanted to try this, sounds amazing from what I hear :)

  7. NICE! I might skip getting something from Estee Lauder & instead purchase this!

    PrettyGloss - makeup, beauty & a lil gibberish

  8. since I bought myself a tube, after the first try, I knew I will never be without it :)

  9. I can't stand the stuff personally, maybe one day it will click for me too? x

  10. but it's just too much like a vaseline....

  11. but it's just too much like a vaseline....

  12. Can't do without this for my lips - if I ever buy anything else at Elizabeth Arden I always ask for a few 15ml tester tubes to "try out" and they last me forever. I don't know if I could bear to smear this on my face, but it's my holy grail lip balm for chapped, dry, bleeding lips - nothing else comes close! x

  13. It looks kind of think but I'd be willing to try it.

  14. this looks like my kind of product!

  15. I still think it's gorified vaseline tbh. Not convinced. I bought it years ago, hated the smell (I know there's an unscented version now) and really didn't see a difference when I used it. Also, why is in a pot now and not the tube? Not very sanitary...

  16. I can't live without it!!!!

  17. Really like eight hour cream, I purchased some today in boots and got a free 'goody bag' of travel items including eight hour cream , hand cream and face moisturiser.
