I can't believe that I had never tried the much loved Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream until just a few weeks ago, where have I been?! Everybody I know has raved about the product so I couldn't wait to try it for myself. This is one of those products which is perfect to keep in your handbag as it can be used for so many different uses.
This is the 8 Hour Cream from Elizabeth Arden in gorgeous limited edition packaging. This is an iconic skincare classic which is loved by so many, my Mum swears by it! This will work its magic to help product and moisturise at any time and can be used to shape brows, revitalise shine, soothe dry hands and smooth cuticles and nails. But is also often used for symptoms of chapping, peeling or flaking due to minor burns, sunburn, windburn, scrapes, abrasions or cracked lips. This can be applied as often or little as you like to add some hydration back into your selected area(s).
The product itself comes in a 50ml tube and is scented. If you don't like the scent of this product, I personally don't mind it but it is on the slightly stronger side, Arden to also offer a fragrance-free version of this product. This is a very smoothing product once applied but doesn't leave the skin or lips feeling greasy or oily. I love how many uses this product has but my favourite has to be for the lips. I suffer from quite dry lips, especially in the colder months and this was been a wonder product for me! Once applied it provides comfort to the lips and injects so much moisturisation back into the lips within just a few hours. I love using this on the lips over night as I wake up to soft lip every morning ready for any liquid lipstick applications.
While I love it for the lips, I have also been really enjoying using it on the cuticles as they are very dry and my nails have never looked better since I started using this on them. I have also had dry knuckles recently due to the cold weather and always forgetting gloves and this has been the only product to keep them hydrated and get rid of the dry skin and flakiness.
