Fragrance Free Eight Hour Cream: the Verdict

Saturday, February 9th 2013 1

Is it the same without that legendary scent?

A devout lover of the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream scent, I wondered how I would get on with the fragrance-free counterpart.

One of the things I’ve been using it on is my hands. The strong scent it normally comes with is too heavy for hands – it would find itself on your phone, your clothes and whatever else.

Recently I got a new kitten which means that I have also inherited a few little cuts and scratches (all accidental, I might add!). My hands have been covered in pesky marks as a result, and I’ve been using my Eight Hour Cream to lessen the appearance of them. There’s been good news and bad news. The good news? Using a small amount on my little scratches a couple of times a day has resulted in them healing quickly (a matter of days) and eventually disappearing altogether. The bad news? As soon as one has gone, Newby manages to give me another one!

Another thing I should note about this particular version I’ve been using is that it has been in a small round pot that I have not used before. I always have some Eight Hour Cream to hand but normally I use the tubes. This pot has been useful for those times when I’ve wanted lighter application. By gently skimming the fingertip on the surface of the pot, I’ve managed to get more of a balmy layer of Eight Hour Cream than the thicker, oilier coverage you get when squeezing from a tube. Both have their uses and this is great for a non-stick, practical application.

As always with Eight Hour Cream, I can’t recommend it enough. It is one of those things that every household should have as it treats a multitude of sins.
