Product Review: Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream

I’m back! The laptop had a minor meltdown but is now in tip top order so away we go again!

Today’s product review is the classic Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream. Developed by Elizabeth Arden in the 1930’s as a protective cream containing  beta-hydroxy (in one of its first recorded cosmetic uses). 8 hour cream is well known for its moisturizing properties, soothing skin irritation, chapping and as a anti inflammatory. Ms Arden was so impressed with the product that is said she used it on her horses legs to sooth them.

Sweet Painted Lady Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream review

The Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream is now my holy grail must have product for both my purse and in my professional kit. I purchased mine from the Elizabeth Arden Counter for the very reasonable price of $36, selecting the fragrance free solution as it would be the best fit for all my clients. The cream is a rose tinted formulation, thick and lovely and very little goes a long way. Personally for myself I use it on my lips, sensitive patches on my skin, brows and for general moisturizing.

On clients I have used it on the lips, as a moisturizer, brow taming, as a highlighter, over shadow for the glossy modern eye and to tame hair frizz. The uses are endless and it is a great open-ended product to have tucked away, ready to pull out when the need calls.
