6 Uses for Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream

My gran gave me Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream last year, and when I finished it I cried.


I am convinced that one of the ingredients is angel kisses or something. The cream is THAT good.

I bought a new tub last month, and my skin is now rejuvenated and healthy thanks to it.


The cream has many uses, however. So I decided to list a few of them for you.

6 Uses for Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream

1. Sunburns

I am the palest girl on the block. Seriously, even after a December holiday in the sun I still look like a ghost.

But every now and then I am fortunate enough to get a “tan”, and with that comes sunburns.

I have 3 trusted remedies for suburns:

1. Aqueous cream
2. Freeze (It’s cheap, but it works!)
3. 8 Hour Cream

8 Hour Cream is especially effective on a Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer sunburn. (My specialty)


Just put some cream all over your face before going to bed – you’ll look like a glazed strawberry doughnut, but you’ll wake up with healthy skin.

2. Dry elbows

Most of us have lizard-like elbows. DON’T EVEN DENY IT.


8 Hour Cream is a great way to tame your lizard. And while you’re at it, you can apply some cream to your heels too.

3. Nappy rashes

I don’t have a baby (well, that’s if you don’t count my puppies), but I’ve been told by one of my colleagues that 8 Hour Cream works on those dreaded nappy rashes.

4. Chapped lips

Yoh! Ain’t nobody got time for chapped lips!

Gurls, if you’ve ever been on Roaccutane you’ll know what I’m talking about. I used to go through Blistex like there’s no tomorrow.

But 8 Hour Cream will combat those desert dry lips, and it’s small enough to carry in your handbag or school blazer.

5. Oumahande

They say that a woman’s hands are the first thing to give her age away. That’s why it’s crucial to take good care of them from a young age.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want witchy hands by the age of 40.

Nourish your hands with 8 Hour Cream to prevent them from going from going from silky smooth to Dumbledore too quickly.


Nee sies man, Dumbledore!

6. A broken heart

Did your crush ignore your Facebook comment? Is there a girl in his new profile picture? Or did he dump you for no reason?

Don’t worry gurl, just put some 8 Hour Cream on your heart. It’ll take the sadness away.

Okay ignore point 6.

But get your hands on Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour Cream – you’ll feel the difference, I promise you!

Price: R195

Available at Woolworths and these stores.

    Hi Anja, loved the article. I can fully relate to your experience with this cream even though I use a different one (the one that comes in a tube). But never the less: I love it, mostly on my lips (day and night! and I’ve been doing so for the last decade) and on my husband’s elbows (because – believe it or not: I am lucky enough to not have dried skin on that body part).
    Love and everything else
