Skincare Review | Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream

When it comes to skincare, I have always been a Nivea girl but recently I've been on the hunt for the one holy grail product that ticks all the boxes. I started experimenting with a combination of the Aveeno daily moisturising lotion and the Aveeno body wash - big mistake. These products did nothing for my dry and sensitive skin, my skin was constantly irritated and it didn't feel moisturised. After ranting about how let down I was my mum suggested I try the Elizabeth Arden 8hr Cream Intensive Moisturising Body Treatment (that’s a mouthful). For the most part it does what it says on the box: This moisturizing treatment saturates your skin with the hydration it craves to reverse dryness and flaking. Leaves your skin soft, smooth and hydrated for up to eight hours. 

I'm not sure about 'eight hours' but it's pretty close and my skin has noticeably improved, bye dry elbows. As for the smell, it's okay and to be honest it has kind of grown on me (that's about as descriptive as I get). Overall I would really recommend this moisturiser any day because with the mega size tub a little goes a long way and you get great value for money. 

             You can get your hands on one and try it out for yourself :  (here) on

  1. I`ve heard so many good reviews about this cream,I`ll definitely try it. I think Beauty Base are selling it at 8 pounds or so, special offer, so I`ll pop there tomorrow and buy one (hopefully I`ll see one left)

    1. Hopefully! 8 pounds is seems like too much of a bargain to pass up. Hope you like it as much as everyone seems to.
