8 benefits of Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant

Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream has been a saviour beauty product for so many women, and I'm no exception as I have been a huge fan of the stuff for years. 

I remember hovering around the Elizabeth Arden counter in Debenhams a couple of years ago, and I was being encouraged by the sales woman to purchase some Eight Hour Cream. After listening to countless benefits that the cream claims to offer, I gave in and eventually bought one, naive to the fact that it would be one of my favourite all-time beauty products and that I would be getting my hands on many more over the years to come.

The number of benefits from Eight Hour Cream is never-ending, and it is a very versatile product. Here, I've compiled a list of '8' amazing benefits that I've experienced with Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant. There are plenty more, but here's my cut of 8.

1. Moisturises intensely dry skin
I've never really had a problem with dry skin apart from on my arms and my elbows as a teenager. I could always easily moisturise my arms, but never my elbows for some reason as nothing ever worked to reduce the dryness of them in the long term. Then came Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream, which helped to completely change the condition of my elbows!

2. Reduces the tenderness of spots
 I hate having a painful spot on my face, and although there are products on the market that promise to reduce the redness of them or to heal them fast, there aren't many that actually deal with the tenderness of them without simply just cooling them. The Eight Hour Cream makes the spot less uncomfortable, and in a matter of minutes.

3. Makes split ends less wispy
 No matter how many times I cut the ends of my hair, my split ends just keep coming back. So I was thrilled to find out from another blogger that the Skin Protectant can reduce the wispy appearance of split ends. Don't worry- the cream is very light so applying it doesn't make your hair feel greasy! 

4. Cools minor burns and cuts
 I recently experienced an awful cut when the zip on my jacket was being stubborn so in an attempt to fasten it as fast as I could, my finger got cut from the abrasion. I went straight to my Eight Hour hero to help with the burning sensation.

5. Comforts sunburnt skin
Last summer, I wore a cold-shoulder top on one of the hottest days of the year and my oval shaped sunburn on my arms looked terrible as you can probably imagine. Not only did it look terrible, but it was very painful. The Skin Protectant cooled the sunburn effectively and I personally feel that it helped to heal the skin a lot quicker.

6. Smoothes cuticles and moisturises splitting nails
While I tend to remain calm under stress, my nails- on the contrary- do the exact opposite. My usually strong nails are awful when I'm stressed as they begin to peel and the ridges tend to split. So I use the Skin Protectant to moisturise the nails and cuticles, improving its condition. I hate using a nail buffer to smooth the splitting/peeling ridges of my nails as I feel it makes them worse so the Eight Hour Cream is a much better alternative to me.

7. Keeps brows immaculately in shape
The 'ruffled' eyebrows look can happen accidentally to anyone so as an additional benefit of the Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant, this is great! 

8. Reduces irritation after waxing
My sensitive skin gets the worst of me after I've waxed my legs; I always fear that I'll get a huge rash or break out in spots as it's happened before. Now after waxing, I apply the Skin Protectant to prevent any irritation. Plus- it adds extra shine to my legs! 

Currently, you can purchase the Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant in a limited edition retro colour-blocking pink/orange/red pot, which looks so pretty and I like how the number '8' is stamped on it. 

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream retails at £20 and can be purchased nationwide.
