Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Cream Skin Protectant (£26 from Debenhams) has long been a cult status product. This smelly (yes it does smell rather bad) cream is a petrolatum and Vitamin E-based wonder that has a multitude of uses. I want to share with you some of the ways I use Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Cream as a daily beauty saviour.
Chapped Skin Relief
8-Hour Cream is a great skin soother and reliever of dry chapped skin- whether that’s on your lips, or on your face and body from cold winds etc. I find it best to apply a thick layer at night and sleep with it on, as harmony is always restored by morning.
It’s also a great alternative to a clear brow gel for keeping those hairs in place and looking groomed. Only the tiniest amount is needed.
8-Hour Cream is also a great way to soothe and calm minor sunburn due to its moisturising properties. It’s a real hydrator, so will reinvigorate sun-exposed skin and help prevent it peeling.
I discovered that it is also a great calmer of raging spots (as it does contain Salicylic Acid as an ingredient). I coat the spot in it at night before I go to sleep, and by the morning it has significantly shrunk, dried-up and reduced in redness.
Another brilliant use of this cream is to use it to give your cuticles some love. It will transform dry ones, leaving them healthy and moisturised. Again, I find that a good liberal application at bedtime works best to keep the cuticles and skin around your nails looking healthy and soft.
