Elizabeth Arden // Eight Hour Cream

Oh no yet another blogger is writing about the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream! Yes, I decided to give this product a go when I finally found it for a significantly reduced sum. I guess I just refuse to pay full price on anything. My primary reaction when I opened the tube was, "this is orange," and "what is that smell?". Perhaps that is not the best reaction but keep in mind that was before I actually tried it. I know that there are 162 ways to use this cream. Okay, that's a slight hyperbole but it really is a multipurpose product. Apparently Elizabeth Arden would apply her magical cream on the legs of her beloved horses. This isn't the first time I've used a beauty product that was used on horses [Mane 'n Tail Conditioner], so I figured if it was good enough for her prized thoroughbreds, it was good enough for me. I personally purchased the 8 Hour Cream to fight a certain dry patch I have on my cheek and to moisturize my elbows. The box itself mentions a few other uses and really summarizes this cream:

" This legendary skincare classic works wonders to moisturize and protect anytime, anyway you choose. Shape brows, revitalize shine, soothe dry hands and smooth cuticles and nails." 

I think it's safe to say that you can pretty much take a bath in a tub of Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream. Oh, if you're curious, I did pinpoint the smell! On my skin it smells exactly like earl grey tea! What do you use the legendary 8 Hour Cream for?

  2. I love this stuff! It's got so many fab uses and it really does the job :)


  3. I love 8 hour cream! I use it for the lips, dry patches anywhere on my body, I also like using it on the top of the cheeks for a highlight and on the lids when I experiment with makeup!

    I also love the story of why 8 hour cream was made :) xx

  6. I've heard so many good things about this. But I've never really got around to buying it, maybe one day! Your horse reference made me laugh, I'm sure I can use it as a selling point to my mum to maybe buy me some (we have horses!) xo

  7. I've never tried it but its such a cult product so I feel like I need to soon! Love a good scented product too :)
