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.
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?
