Eight hours with Elizabeth Arden

Tuesday, 31 July 2012

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour rangeIt’s a beauty essential in most women’s bags, and has won numerous awards. When we were sent the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour range to test, we couldn’t bear to divide and concur so I tried out the entire set!

Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant

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.

Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturizing Hand Treatment

Altogether a great range of products.

As a gift set the four Eight Hour products retail at R350, and are available at selected retail stores.

    The eight hour range really works. I have tried the eye cream which is amazing with dark circles and the hand cream keeps my hand moisturised the entire day.

    This cream is just amazing – you only use the tiniest bit and it just spreads… your skin isn’t left feeling dry and dull after a long day. Especially if you are in an air conditioned environment

    Hi Zu

    The good news is that Elizabeth Arden has brought out the Eight Hour cream that is fragrance free! Still exactly the same minus the smell.

    Eight hour cream works wonders, its just one of those products that I will use for the rest of my life!!!

    The only thing is the smell is a bit disappointing for me.I just have a thing with good smelling beauty product. Although this product makes my skin supple and hydrated. Kiehl’s and Clinique are very similar to this product but the scent is pleasing.
