Best Protective Skin Cream


The Eight Hour Cream is a definitive Elizabeth Arden product that not only acts as a skin protectant but also soothes chapped and dehydrated skin. This protective skin cream is dubbed the 'Miracle Cream' as it heals minor weather burns and abrasions, and acts as a shield against environmental damage. The Eight Hour Cream is clinically tested and declared a standard protective skin cream by professional dermatologists.


The Eight Hour Cream, or the Miracle Cream, was Miss Arden's own concoction, first created to act as a protective skin ointment. It was tested by Miss Arden on her horses' bruises with remarkable results, healing them in eight hours. This was reaffirmed by a customer who claimed her son's scraped knee was restored in just eight hours, thus christening it as the Eight Hour Cream. Its essential components include petrolatum, a rigorous moisturizer, salicylic acid, an exfoliator, and Vitamin E, which helps protect the skin from damage. Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream is also a winner of twenty-two beauty awards over its 70 years of existence including the Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards 2010 for Cosmo Beauty Classic Award, the Irish Tatler Beauty Awards 2010 for Best Hero Multi Tasker, the Top Sante Glow Health and Beauty Awards 2010 for Best Iconic Product and Elle Beauty Awards 2010.


The Eight Hour Cream is quite a multi-tasking product. It not only acts as a conventional protective skin cream which pacifies skin irritations and restores dry skin but also helps relieve slight sunburns and skin exposed to sun for a prolonged period of time. It is also a treat to use on cuticles, feet and legs as it softens them and makes them smooth and silky. The Eight Hour Cream is a make-up kit must because it gives a shine to the skin and gives your eyebrows a perfectly defined arch with just one stroke. Many famous make-up artists consider it an essential beauty product. Additionally, it can be used by eczema patients as it has anti-inflammatory benefits which provide relief to their skin condition.

Tips and comments

This protective skin cream is an all-in-one product, which does not only make your skin healthy but also makes it look good. The Eight Hour Cream has grown into a range of products which focus on being protective of the skin by pacifying and shielding the skin in order for it to look and feel its best. This range includes the classic Skin Protectant, the Lip Protectant Stick, the Daily Moisturizer for Face, the Intensive Moisturizing Hand Treatment, the Intensive Moisturizing Body Treatment and Targeted Sun Defense Stick. These products are evolved from the original Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream but also include some extra elements. The Lip Protectant also doubles as a lipstick and acts as a sunscreen for the lips. The Daily Moisturizers include a triple action formula which enables them to act as moisturizers, face wash and sunscreen. The Sun Defense Stick is entirely focused on being a protective skin sunscreen. The Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Range is also available in a gift pack to ensure that your loved ones remain beautiful, inside and out.
