Seriously, I don’t understand what makes the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream a cult beauty item. I was greatly disappointed with the result of its Intensive Moisturizing Hand Treatment and didn’t think it lives up to its reputation as a luxurious gel cream to moisturize hands up to 8 hours. Did they mean one application or a dozen?
Moreover, the cream feels and smells suspiciously like vaseline petroleum jelly. While it is indeed very concentrated, I dislike the feel after rubbing it on my hands and thought it is so much like the much cheaper Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Hand Cream.
The Eight Hour Lip Protectant is also no better for me. It says for those who suffer flaky lips, dry lips, and chapped lips. Yet, strangely, it made my lips flaky just after two hours of wearing it.
Perhaps it’s the climate or maybe the real reason why the Eight Hour Cream is popular with other women is only because of the original skin protectant. Apparently, it is famous for being one of the best multi-purpose products on the market, reportedly used as a cheekbone highlighter, or to banish hard skin, dry elbows as well as seal split ends and prevent nappy rash. Some even use it to polish shoes!
Whatever it is, the companions failed to impress me and I’m definitely no Eight Hour convert.
