AMW Reviews: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant

My UDL (Ultimate Dry Lips) is hopeless, I have found a lot of good lip products that works but "re-application" will always be the key to lip moisturization!

My brother, gifted me Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream last year and I stored it inside my "stock cabinet" and left it there for quite sometime as I was busy finishing up my existing 3 lip products that are scattered on "core" places inside my room.

One night, as I was watching a YT video of Lisa Eldridge, she mentioned about the "Eight Hour Cream" that she applied all over her lips and woke up with nice, soft and supple lips!  I got off my bed right away and checked the "Elizabeth Arden" gift that brother gifted me --- Wow!  I own one!!!

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Tube, easy squeeze packaging making it hygienic and easy to use.
 
  • Multi purpose, can be used on lips and other dry areas of your face or body.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • This is the only lip product that I use at night and woke up with the product still on lips!
  • Lips feel better and lipstick can go smoothly the day after.
  • As compared to Kiehl's lip balm, the price isn't bad considering the amount of product you get.
Cons
  • Though this is an overall body skin protectant, this won't be comfortable to be used all over your body due to its waxy feel.
Overall
A wonderful product on lips and very dry areas!

Tips
  • Apply with clean fingers.
  • Can be applied on lips, dry patches on the face and body and on very dry cuticles.
  • Once signs of irritations occur, STOP usage immediately.
  • This can also be used as a cosmetic, apply this to tame brows or create "glossy" look especially on runway shows.
  • It helps to exfoliate your lips with a damp toothbrush prior to application of this product for better healing.
  • For matte lipstick lover, apply a good amount of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream on lips and proceed with your makeup application, blot your lips to reduce excess moisture with a tissue paper then apply your choice of matte lipstick with a lip brush.
Will I repurchase?
Big Fat Yes!  I bought an extra tube for clients who have extremely dry lips.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who have problems with dryness.  This product is great for people who have extremely dry lips.

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Elizabeth counter for Php1,450 (approx $34.00).


Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Swatch
The usage, texture and the scent reminded me so much of my other favorite Lucas Papaw Ointment.  The Eight Hour Cream's texture is smoother and tastes better.


Applied on lips, my lips are still dry but I can definitely feel it softer!

Thanks to my brother for always buying the right "stuff"!  Before I end this post, I want to share to you what's written on the box ...



I agree, so please don't let anyone dampen your confidence because we are all created beautiful in our own unique ways!  Nobody can say otherwise unless you let them! :)

  1. It just occured to me today that while I've been reading your blog for quite awhile now (at least a year!) I don't think I've ever commented. So, am here, saying hi. =)

    I have also never looked at Elizabeth Arden as I am a packaging lover and I have to admit that EA has never had packaging to lure me in. However, I do suffer from extremely dry lips, so I think I'm going to have to change that ! No amount of lip balm seems to be helping, so I'm banking everything on EA now!

    1. *waves* HI Celeste :) Nice to meet yoU! :D

      Don't worry you're not alone, I've always thought of EA the brand for scents but never thought about their skincare! I'm glad my brother opened my eyes to try this!!! :) They have smaller packaged version for Php900+ but this one is better! More product and better packaging!

  3. I have this in sample size! I used it to help with my cracked heels, but I never dare to use it on my lips as it smells a little weird. I'm worried I will faint if I use it anywhere near my nose! LOL

    And I can only use it at night, as it's too oily. But it does work, heels usually look and feel better :P If only it smells better...
