This review is from: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant 50ml (Packaging varies) (Personal Care)
This cream has been a real eye opener for me - literally ! Over the summer my eye lids and the skin around my eyes became extremely red and flaky and very sore. I assumed it was really bad hayfever but as it persisted through to September I decided to seek advice. My doctor told me it was eczema and I should use a steroid cream for a week which I tried only for the symptoms to flare up as soon as I stopped using the cream. I went to the opticians and was diagnosed with Blepharitis. It can occur at any age and accounts for 1 in 20 eye problems.I was told that the condition cannot be cured but can be controlled with a routine of bathing in hot water for 15 minutes and washing in baby shampoo. This tedious process took up half an hour of my day and did not make a great difference. I read on a website that someone swore by EA 8 hour cream and thought I'd give it a go. Within 2 days (morning and night application) my symptoms were gone ! I use it sparingly whenever I feel a tingle or my eyes look red and I've been symptom free for over 3 months. Couldn't tell you what it's really supposed to be for but it's been a real help for me.
