Every girl should have an Eight Hour Cream set in her make up bag, it's a long term essential for me, not part of my usual daily skincare routine but certainly very much needed as a standby hero fixing range and for when on my travels.

The Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is a multifunctional product, I use it on chapped lips when my Lip Protectant Stick runs out, on elbows, knees and generally on any really dry parts of my body which are in need of some serious hydration.

Currently my skin in in total shock after spending a week in glorious near equator sunshine then back to -4 degrees conditions in the UK. The result is a dry peel fest, the worst being my lips which are so uncomfortable, looking seriously festy and which means I cannot wear lip colour :0(

So out came my Elizabeth Arden rescue kit and after using the Skin Protectant and Intensive Moisturising Hand Treatment for a few days things are on the up skin wise.

This range is a must have, if you haven't tried it out then you should put it on your Christmas list as I just couldn't be without it.
