A perennial favourite, this cream helps relieve chapped, cracked and dry skin. Use to shape brows, revitalise shine and smooth cuticles.
What we say:
‘Finally, I’ve found something that actually offers instant relief for cracked skin! Whenever I do any hand washing or wash the dishes, my fingertips – specially the thumbs, actually – get painful cracks that make my life a misery. They don’t look like anything dramatic but the pain is out of proportion when compared to their appearance, and even running my fingers through my hair makes me want to scream. I’ve tried putting plasters on them, but they just get wet when I wash my hands and make things worse. Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is a wonderful, thick, waxy cream reminiscent of beeswax, and it has a fresh, herby fragrance unlike many other products like this. Wonderful stuff! I’ll definitely keep it on hand in future (no pun intended). The only downside is I won’t have any more excuses for not doing the washing…’
