I have used 8 hour cream for years but since travelling I really appreciate its multi-functionality. I think everyone should have a tube of this magic cream. It does the job of so many products and has made my make-up and beauty kit so much lighter. It’s very rich and one 50ml tube (£25) generally lasts me a year or so…and that’s with me using it frequently. I love the whole range so always try to pick up multi-packs at duty-free.
The lipsticks come as a clear balm or in a couple of natural shades and they are really moisturising. The product has existed since the 1930’s however has since been improved and is popular for its fragrance free option which is great for people with sensitive skin. Here are the 5 ways I use this product:
1. The texture is similar to Vaseline and it is very hydrating packed with vitamins and minerals, It is great for dry cracked skin. I often use it on my lips or feet to keep my pedicure fresh.
2. I love using 8 hour cream to complete a make-up look, its great for creating that fresh dewy look. I just brush a little on the cheekbones and lips and sometimes on the eyelids, you will notice a lot of make-up artists use this product on the runway or for high fashion shoots
3. Its a very soothing product and restores skin over a 8 hour period, I use it for cuts and burns to heal quicker and minimize scarring.
4. I’m currently in Peru and its mosquito season, this product is great for soothing insect bites and stops the itching while reducing redness.
5. I travel often and hate how dehydrating the air is on aeroplanes, I use this product to feed my skin on long-haul flights to ensure my skin stays moisturised and fresh.
In conclusion its a moisturiser for dry skin – it can be used on the face and body, a highlighter, a lip-balm and a healing cream for cuts, burns and bites.
