There are some names in the beauty industry which are synonymous with successful results – one of those being Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour Miracle Cream…
I’m pretty skeptical of things like this, however, after years of being relatively fortunate with my skin, I seemed to have developed really dry skin on my face and I’m sure I’m not the only one who finds this to become ten times worse in Winter – going from the heating out in to the bracing cold.
I needed something that might help this but that I could use as a multi-use cream – for hangnails, chapped lips, dry hands and feet, so I settled on the award-winning hit, Elizabeth Arden cream.
This cream definitely works – which obviously, is the main thing you would look for in a moisturiser. However there are 2 drawbacks here.
The first I would say is the texture – if you were to use this to try and aid dry feet, you wouldn’t be able to walk anywhere as the cream is really greasy (we have laminate flooring and I struggle not to go flying on that when I’m just pottering about the house for goodness sake!).
And the other thing, is the smell. This is definitely just personal preference, and I haven’t actually seen any reviews that really complain about it, but for me it’s really off putting. I have been putting this on my face at night, but the smell is quite overpowering…
All in all, the cream is great, it definitely does work really well and will help to soothe sad, dry skin, but I do recommend going in-store and trying this yourself, as the smell and texture likely aren’t what you would expect, particularly if you’re going to spend so much money on a moisturiser!
Have you used Elizabeth Arden eight hour cream? What did you think of the smell and the texture?
