Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Beauty Gift Set Review

8 comments
Between a polar vortex and now another Arctic blast, my skin has been in need of some serious help. If you have read previous posts you will know that I have been on the hunt for a hand cream strong enough to deal with my rough patches. Erratic weather and frequent hand washing have not been kind to my skin, so this had me trying the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream set.





This set contains The Original Eight Hour Cream, Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturizing Body Treatment, and an Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick Sunscreen SPF 15. The set I have came with a makeup bag, but the one on the Elizabeth Arden site just has the products.



The Original Eight Hour Cream is a product with multiple uses to protect skin. I have used it to treat rough, cracked skin, but it can also be used to soften cuticles, shape eyebrows, or to add shine to lips or eyelids. The Original Eight Hour Cream is the classic formula and it looks and smells like it is from another era. This is a very thick petroleum based formula with a citronellol  fragrance. Because it is so thick, I would not recommend this for overall application but for rough patches that need extra attention only. A drugstore alternative to this is the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream. It is not as thick as the Eight Hour Cream, but it is very similar and is fragrance free.

The Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturizing Body Treatment is an extra moisturizing body lotion with a slight lemon fragrance. This looks like a body lotion, but it provides extra hydration. The Intensive Moisturizing Body Treatment is exactly what I have been looking for in a hand cream. It has a little extra thickness and extra hydrating properties that make it perform better than others I have used. I have also used this to soothe my dry legs and elbows. This is a body lotion that goes the extra mile.

Intensive Moisturizing Body Treatment and Eight Hour Cream


The Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick Sunscreen SPF 15 is a very light moisturizing lip balm. It has minimal shine and no color, so it would be appropriate for both men and women. What really impresses me about this lip balm is that it is moisturizing without feeling heavy. I like to use lip balm at night, but usually it turns into a film on my lips by the morning. With this, I wake up with moisturized lips without the gunky film.

I am very impressed with the effectiveness of all of these products. They all do exactly what they say and are very moisturizing and therapeutic. This set has improved my dry, cracked skin, and that's saying something.

  1. This sounds like a lovely set! I keep hearing great things about the Eight hour cream and this winter weather certainly makes me wish I had some. Today the wind has been howling and it's soooooo cold. I'm with you I like to wear lip balm to bed but hate waking up with icky lips. Thanks for sharing dear!
