Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Review

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Review

I purchased Elizabeth Arden’s award winning Eight Hour Cream back in January for my makeup artist kit, but I haven’t used it up until now. For the past few weeks, my lips have been extremely chapped. I tried every single lip product under the sun I have in my house and not one helped me. Not even the famous Reve de Miel Balm. But more on that later. Eight Hour Cream was my last resort, and it is the product I have to thank for saving my lips. 

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Review

The cream comes in a tube and is very thick compared to other creams, so I can’t imagine putting it all over my face. I actually wouldn’t describe it as a cream, because nothing about this product screams cream to me. The colour is not white but peach, it is a bit sticky, greasy, and smells very unique. I’ve been thinking about how to desribe it for hours, but I honestly have no idea what it could be compared to. You’ll just have to go smell it yourself. Keep in mind, there are two different formulas out there – the original one and the fragrance free one. I have the fragrance free one, so I have no idea how the original smells like. Having said that, mine still has a scent even though it’s fragrance free. I hope this makes sense.

As I have said, I use the product for my chapped lips, but apparently, it works for a whole list of other problems as well. To name a few, you can use it on your dry patches, cuticles, feet, sunburns, brows or just to add gloss to a model’s lips/eyelids/cheekbones at a photoshoot. That’s what I call a multi-purpose product! Also, did you know that this little miracle was created more that 80 years ago?! Amazing! Do you use it yourself?

    Tudi neko ozadje zgodbe o konjski kremi je za to kremo:). Meni je super kot gloss čez šminke. Mi je nekaj časa super odgovarjal na ustnicah, za celjenje, zdaj pa več nekako ne. Mogoče ker je že malo stara krema, pa je nikakor nisem mogla cele tube porabiti v času navedenem na embalaži. Mi pa vonj nikakor ni všeč – premočan (imam original verzijo).:)

      Konjska krema? 😀 To pa nisem vedela. Bom šla pa definitivno original povohat, ker me res zanima kakšen vonj ima.

    Wow sounds like a good all rounder! I swear lip balms are rubbish if your lips are actually chapped, I've used heavy creams/ moisturisers before too :)India / Touchscreens & Beautyqueens
