As much as we love the latest product launches, there’s something to be said about old classics. From timeless fragrances to rosy lipsticks, beauty products that come from our grandmother’s bag are something we truly treasure. So, you can imagine our excitement on learning that every makeup artist uses this one product, that has been handed down from generation to generation. What are we going on about? Elizabeth Arden’s legendary Eight Hour Cream, of course! More than just an average moisturizer, this cream is the secret weapon of the beauty industry. Here are 8 different ways to use this magic potion.
1. Lip Balm
If you find yourself without a chapstick, reach for this tube. Proven to be one of the most effective cures for chapped lips, a dab or two of this cream guarantees a soft, plush pout.
2. Glossy Eye Shadow
Although we love colourful eye shadows, nothing is quite as classy as a glossy lid. Use this product alone or layer it on top of a colour for a pretty sheen.
3. Brow Tamer
Let’s face it – brows can make or break a look. Keep unruly brows in check with this translucent cream. You can even use it to tame flyaways and frizz!
4. Cuticle Conditioner
Thinking of pampering yourself to a manicure? Skip the salon and grab this cream instead. Not only will it hydrate your rough cuticles, but will also keep them smooth and supple.
5. After Sun Treatment
A day on the beach sounds like heaven… until your skin starts to peel. This soothing cream provides gentle relief to sunburn and irritation.
We all love a lit-from-within glow. Tap this cream on to the tops of your cheeks, chin and nose for dewy, fresh skin.
7. Foot Softener
Partying it up in your heels can lead to cracked feet. Slather your heels with this cream every night and slip on your socks – we promise that you will wake up with baby soft feet!
8. Anti-Chafing Treatment
Whether it’s a bout of flu or pesky allergies, our sensitive noses just won’t stop sneezing! A tiny bit of this cream will soothe your Rudolph nose and keep it from flaking and peeling.
Clearly this cream is the Queen of Multitasking! Hit us up in the comments below and let us know how you use this fabulous product.
