Handbag Essential: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream

A cult classic for the Elizabeth Arden range & a beauty secret passed down to me from my own mother, the iconic Eight Hour Cream is a true handbag essential.

Originally developed back in 1930 by Elizabeth Arden herself, this wonder salve remains a firm favourite of Beauty Editors & Makeup Artists due to it's hard-working and multi-use nature. Textured like a thick balm rather than a traditional cream, the 'skin protectant' is perfect for moisturising and healing damaged, cracked cuticles, wind-beaten lips and severely dry patches like elbows and heels. Makeup Artists love it for the dewy sheen it brings to the skin - it can be used on the tops of cheekbones for a subtle luminosity or smoothed over brows to keep them in place.

Now available in a convenient travel pot (shown) as well as the orginal tube, this is one daily essential I keep in my handbag at all times.
