Elizabeh Arden eight hours cream
Many celebrities say they use this cream...but It seems that I donīt know how...

Sure, Iīve used in on lips and cuticles, but I donīt understand if you can use in on your face?
In that case how? Cos itīs kinda sticky...
I loooove the smell of it!
Anyway, Iīm tired of reading models (Elle, Gisele, etc) saying they use it every day, and itīs fundamental in their beauty routine, and that they love it, but Iīm preety sure Iīm missing the point of it.

Can somebody enligthen me?

I just use it on my lips and cuticles too, and I love it for that kind of use, but yes, I've been wondering too... to smear it all over my face is not that tempting...

I think you can use it on your face but only in the dry patches.
I think that smearing all over the face would make the skin really oily, at least for daytime use, but maybe itīs good to smear just on places like cheeks and for a night treatment.

You only really use it on your face when its really dry, or people use it on long flights to stop their skin from drying out.

I always use mine on my lips and if i'm out and my feet have dried out, its really handy to have a tube in my bag.

It's more of a skin-repair product; I use it on dry patches and it's great on hands. Pretty greasy though.

I love it and I use it for everything. You can definitely use it one your face, unless you tend to brake out. I use it on my face when it’s cold, on my cheekbones as a highlighter and I sleep with a layer on my face once in a while and wake up with super smooth and soft skin. It’s especially great if you’ve been partying cuz then your skin gets dry…

You just put on a thin layer and of course you can't wear make-up over it cuz it gets sticky... But unless you have really dry skin you shouldn't wear it on you'r t-zone cuz you'll get shiny. ok?

I must be in the minority, because I think it smells horrible! That's the only thing that puts me off.

My mom uses it only for when she burns herself in the kitchen. And she's always asking me, "do you have that cream in case you burn yourself cooking??" (I have been known to be clumsy like that)
But it really is great if you get a little burn, it even stops the pain.
Usually I just use it as a lip balm though, and I wouldn't put it on my face except for in extreme harsh weather to protect from the cold and wind (like on a ski holiday), because it contains mineral oil, which I'd rather not use on my face daily for example.
And I'm pretty sure you could use plain vaseline on your face instead of 8hr cream if you wanted something cheaper and more or less the same effect.

Personally, I don't know how anyone could use this- i mean, it stinks! literally! It smells so bad that maybe you could use it on your feet or your lower legs, but to put it on your face, and have that smell around you??!! I don't care how beneficial it is, that smell just destroys it!

It is very icky sticky and is basically posh vaseline type petrolium product and every time I tried using it is smells like grease, looks like grease and makes me feel nausious.... it's ok as a hand cream/dry bits cream though I think there are far better products...... clinique do the best skincare products in my opinion... and I have tried practically all the major brands.
