Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream


Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream £25 - When I was looking through my posts and writing up my "Best of 2013" series I realised that there were so many products I'd mentioned briefly but never fully reviewed. Although some of these are cult classics that don't really need an introduction I personally still feel that I can never read enough reviews of some products, especially ones with a hefty price tag and high cult following. The Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream cropped up on buyapowa once, apologies I can't remember the price that I actually paid for it (£13 I think) but I just couldn't resist after hearing so many good things. I did receive this in the summer of 2013 and the next day slapped it on post cleansing and toning, waited for as long as I possibly could for it to soak into my skin and then popped my make up on after. By the time I got home from work I'd already sent a tweet out asking if anyone else felt so greasy after using this! As I said earlier I waited as long as possible before applying make up over the top and it still wasn't totally soaked in, my foundation felt like it was sliding over my face all day and it was so uncomfortable. I'm never one for much powder as I like the dewy look but even the areas I had powdered were greasy. I could not wait to take my make up off and needless to say I haven't dared try this as a moisturiser again! I now reserve it (possibly a good idea considering the price tag) for really dry elbows and my lips. It works wonders if applied the night before and then putting your lippy on the next morning! Who else has tried a cult product that they were hugely let down by?! Or was I doing something wrong with this?!
