Product Review: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant


 

Product Description:

Soothes minor skin irritations. Also for symptoms of chapping, peeling or flaking due to minor burns, sunburn, windburn, scrapes, abrasions or cracked lips.


I received this as a gift from my mom. The EA Eight Hour Cream are considered classic products of the brand, but when I read reviews online, people actually either love it or hate it. Wanna see why? Read on to find out.

The product comes out as a thick orange substance with a strange smell!

PROS
  • I use it for my cracked lips and it does a good job of moisturizing my lips.
  • A little goes a long way

CONS
  • It's 56.8% Petrolatum
  • It has a very weird smell! Can't EA make something better smelling? 

In conclusion, it actually does a good job doing what it's supposed to do. However, since I rarely have any skin irritations, I just use this mostly for my lips. I also feel that it's too expensive for something that's half petrolatum. I mean petrolatum is really cheap! I'd welcome this as a gift, but I won't buy this myself.

Where to buy and how much? At Rustans for P900.
