Hands like a Princess

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is one of those products that is like the Holy Grail - something that everyone lusts after and nobody has a bad word to say about. I have to admit I've been tempted to purchase some for well over a year, but every time I went into Boots and tried a bit I was totally put off... it seemed a bit too greasy for my liking and just wasn't something I was prepared to fork out for, even if it was supposed to be super good. So when I ordered a subscription to ELLE magazine and they offered me a selection of free gifts, I took the plunge and went for the Elizabeth Arden set which contained a hand cream and body lotion. It couldn't hurt right? Totally.


The hand cream comes in a fab tube with an extra special cap which makes it super posh and worth the spondula.  I use a tonne every day because my little hands work very hard - especially at the moment when I've been at a work event for the last few days, handing out leaflets and packing up stands. Much abuse has taken place. I took my little tube of Elizabeth Arden along with me and it literally was my saving grace. It's a lighter formula than traditional handcreams and definitely not as greasy, so it sinks into the skin quickly meaning you're not left with a greasy mess for twenty minutes while it dries. The formula has that unique scent that everyone loves which hangs around long after the moisturiser sinks in. You only need a little blob to cover both hands and it instantly cools and soothes dry, cracked hands.  I can't think of a better hand cream I've tried.

  1. Does not work for me at all. I don't like the way it makes my hands feel and somehow they are more flaky in the morning.
    Just like my lips and this Vaseline lip treatment. Maybe there is a similar ingredient in both.

  2. Hmmm maybe - I'm sure it's to do with glycerin or something.
