It’s still pretty chilly and dry where I live so I thought I would squeeze in one last review that is relevant to winter. I have done a review of the lip balm from the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour line a few posts ago and I have expressed my love for it especially this winter season! So I thought I would follow up with these two – one of which is a hand cream and the other is their original Eight Hour cream.
Starting off with the hand cream, this is a really nice non-greasy formula that sinks into the skin and helps a lot with dryness. However, the smell is super strong and unpleasant and noticeably lingers on until it dries down. I really enjoy the formula and would recommend this but if you are sensitive to strong smells, I would skip this one.
The original Eight Hour cream is meant to be used on dry hands/cuticles, to shape brows, to add shine to the cheeks, used on hair, lips, face, etc. So there are quite a few ways to use this product, I’ve even read how it helps to heal wounds and burns. The first thing I would like to mention is that this isn’t a traditional “cream” formula. It feels more so like an ointment or a very thick gel. The smell is beyond strong and rather medicinal. In saying that, this stuff is amazing at healing the skin and protecting the skin against the harsh winter months. It creates sort of like a “second skin” that sticks to you and helps repair any damage. I really can’t recommend that you use this as a hand cream because it’s too thick/sticky however, if you have a cut, burn, or a rash this stuff is amazing!
