In my eyes Elizabeth Arden's 8 hour cream is an absolute must have for everyone, no matter how old you are this is something that belongs in every woman's handbag.
This intensive moisturising treatment can be used all over the body and leaves your skin feeling incredible.
The cream comes in a white tube with a screw top lid. When you squeeze it out you may be a bit surprised at the consistency of the product. It is very thick and rather stodgy but do not let that put you off, it can work wonders!
A lot of creams on the market I find tend to leave my skin and hands feeling greasy and slippy but the 8 hour cream rubs in a treat even when being used on your face. The cream is absorbed quickly into your skin to leave it feeling lovely and hydrated. And there's no nasty smell.
Initially when looking at the price of the cream you may be a bit shocked at around £26-£30 on the high street but when you know its full benefits you will realise you are actually getting a bargain.
All over body cream is an understatement as when you hear this you generally think just all over skin however this cream gives you much more. If in this dreadful weather we've been having the cold has given you chapped lips try using the 8 hour cream, just a small squeeze is needed to leave your lips feeling soft and kissable.
The cream is available in sizes 30ml and 50ml. To get the best deal I would recommend using a price comparison website as a lot of websites offer prices cheaper than the high street.
Try using the cream on; elbows, knees, feet, eyebrows, cheeks, hands, lips, face. If you search online you will find that people have made suggestions for a variety of uses for the cream. I've even read about people using it on their hair, I personally have not tried this but it has been done.
I find this cream makes a great primer to put on before your makeup. I rub some all over my face including on my eyelids and eyebrows and it makes my makeup stay all day. I've also tried putting this on my eyelashes instead of mascara and it does give you a nice natural look on those days when you just cannot be bothered to put on makeup. I read that it is supposed to make your eyelashes grow but I cannot see any results from this.
8 hour cream isn't just a random name, in the cold I get dry skin on my face and putting just a dab of cream on before I go to sleep will completely heal the dryness by the time I've woken up.
As you only need to use a small amount of cream at any one time you will find that the tube will last you a long time. This is another reason why it is such a bargain!
So what are you waiting for? Bargain necessity for every woman's handbag.
