Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream review

I got the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream for Christmas and have been using it A LOT since! 
I have mainly used it on my lips but as you can literally use it anywhere! It says on the back of the product that you can use it to; shape brows, revitalise shine, soothe dry hands, smooth cuticles and can also be used on symptoms of; chapping, peeling, minor burns, sunburn, windburn, scrapes, abrasions or cracked lips. Its a gel-like formula that is orange in colour.

I have recently (the past several months) noticed my lips seem to crack much more than they ever used to. I wanted to try this because I've heard amazing things about it for your lips.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has cracked and sore lips because its helped me a lot. I would, however say that it doesn't leave my lips feeling the most moisturised as its more of a healing balm that a moisturising lip balm, but i don't mind that because i know i won't have sore lips for long once i use this.

I would recommend using this before bed as it can take a while to soak into your lips. However, i have used a tiny amount before applying lipliner then lipstick recently and it did work ok.

The only negative thing i would say about this is the smell of it. I can't describe what i actually smells of, but its just not nice! I can just about put up with the smell because the end result is worth it. But i would recommend testing this and smelling it before you buy as its a lot of money to waste if you decide you can't handle the smell!
RRP £22.00


  1. This stuff sounds amazing! Although I will definitely smell it if I ever want to buy it, hopefully I can handle it aha!
