It’s very hard to ignore the hype surrounding Elizabeth 8 Hour Cream Skin Protectant and it’s wonderous ability to solve the woes of the chapped and dry-skinned among us. So I was delighted when I had the chance to sample the brand new unscented version of the product and see whether it was all it was cracked up to be.
The product: This is expensively packaged and a good size in a nice soft squeezy tube so you can get every last drop of product out!
Application: I had no idea what the consistency of the 8 Hour Cream would be like but didn’t expect the very thick almost yellow balm that came out. It’s serious stuff so I used it sparingly on the very dry area on my lips, around my nose and on my hands which get a bit sore and scaly from using so much hand sanitiser.
Result: This is one of those balms that would happily sit in your makeup bag for those days when you get an attack of lizard skin. It’s an all rounder so you can’t really go wrong although there are alternatives on the market. It’s very good, I just would argue there’s other fab products on the market that offer the same results.
Pros: Will sort any dry skin woes all over the body, unscented for those who don’t like heavily scented products
Cons: You couldn’t use this as a moisturiser, it’s quite expensive at €31
