One of my favourite beauty products is Elizabeth Arden 8-hour cream. It is a much loved product that industry insiders rave about. And with good reason.

Since discovering it myself back in 2007, I have been using it daily. It’s so versatile and has many uses.

Here are my top 8 uses:

1. As a lip balm/ gloss.

2. As a preparation balm before exfoliating lips.

3. To soothe minor sunburn on shoulders/ nose/ chin (keeps skin hydrated and soothes burn).

4. To soften hard/ rough skin on elbows, knees, knuckles.

5. As cuticle cream.

6. To soothe dry/ peeling skin on fingers.

7. As skin highlighter on cheekbones.

8. Mixed with pigment powder shadows to make custom colour lip gloss, cream blush, cream shadows, cream highlighter.
