Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream | Haul

Rumour has it that the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is very amazing and a beauty must have. I finally took the plunge when I saw a great set for a great price, most likely a gift set, available at Winner's (akin to TJ Maxx or Marshalls but for Canada). 






So I finally took the plunge and for $15 CAD it was a good deal! I got 50ml, a pretty standard size, of the Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant, along with a Eight Hour Lip Protectant Stick (a balm) with SPF 15 and an Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturizing Treatment (30ml). 
 I'm ecstatic I was able to pick it up at this price my first time purchasing.

The Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is said to be amazing for cuts and bruises and any other type of marking you'd like to keep hydrated and protected in a pinch. A lot of beauty lovers have claimed that this can be used as a balm. It also has some properties for beauty: it can be used over the eyelid to create a dewy finish, to smooth out eyebrow hairs, moisturize/protect cuticles and it can also be used across the cheekbone to create that same dewy finish - just to name a few. 
Evidently, Elizabeth Arden used to use it on her bruises to help them heal, and rumour even has it that one of her client's used it on their son's scraped knee - which healed in the "eight hour" time frame of the cream! 
The petrolatum, vitamin E and beta-hydroxy concoction has been a cult favourite for some time, and so I'm glad to have it in my collection!

You can probably find this on occasion at your local Winner's or TJ Maxx, otherwise you can grab it the Elizabeth Arden Beauty Boutique online here.
A 50ml tube will be about $20. If you specifically want the gift set I spoke about above, you can also grab it at the online boutique here at the price of $35. 

What do you ladies think of the Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant? If you have it, what do you use it for? 
I always love hearing ideas!

  1. I love using this as an overnight lip balm, and for any dry skin. Haven't tried using it on bruises, but I get a lot of them so I might have to.

    1. I used it on my bruise and although it didn't go away within eight hours I think massaging in a nice moisturizer helped it go away in a couple days!

      I will have to try it for lip balm, except I have the scented version so that might not be so nice :/

  2. I tried it on my lips and I loved it! But the fragrance is too harsh to put it on my face. I though about the fragrance free one, but some say it is not as good.

    1. I agree, the fragrance is quite strong. I'd put it on my face only when it's harshly cold out! (as it does get here in Canada).
