Great Allrounder

This cream/gel is very handy for travelling or in my handbag. Primarily I use this for dry lips and dry cuticles. But has many uses! The gel is orange/brown in colour and smells a bit medicinal. It last for ages so it is good value for money.

Ideal for

Chapped lips and dry cuticles!

The best all rounder, life saving skin care.

I have a tube of this for my personal use and for my freelancing kit.

For me I use this on my lips during winter and occasionally during the warmer months, nothing keeps them as soft as this. I also use it on rashes or severe dry spots.

On clients it is the same deal, dry skin, mature skin, chapped lips, rashes, everything. I apply this, work on other areas while it works it's magic and gently wipe away to reveal happier skin.

A 50 ml tube will last you a long time unless you are using it over large areas, the consistency is typical of a balm and it does have a herbally scent and taste which you'll either love or hate, personally I don't like it but I find it easy to deal with due to the results it gives.

Amazing stuff, well worth the money!

Multi-purpose product

This cream has so many uses. I use it as a lip balm, on dry hands/elbows/knees, and even on scratches and bites. It is more of a gel consistency than a cream and is orange in colour. The smell is unusual but I don't mind the smell. It is super nourishing and hydrating and it leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. Great product!

Ideal for

Dry skin and lips

Saves my lips!!

When I first got this I really had no idea what it was for, luckily my cousin told me. That was about 8 years ago and this is the only product I have found that helps with sore cracked lips. I have several tubes but it works best If applied before bed so it works its magic all night. The smell is best described as strange but seriously buy it! Even better it lasts ages and also comes in a lipstick style tube if you prefer


Apply before bed so it works all night long.

Ideal for

Sore cracked lips

Unique product with many benefits

The first thing I have noticed about any products in the 8 Hour range is the smell - it's very distinctive & is almost (but not quite) too powerful.

I like the scent, but it did take a bit of getting used to when first trying the range.

This has a very thick, almost "ointment" type of formula - which to me does limit what I use it for. II do find it particularly effective at repairing cuticles & use it every night at bedtime as an overnight lip balm - it's working a treat at keeping my lips in great condition.

Travel toolkit

I always bring this with me when I travel. It's great because being a compact multi-tasked, it saves space in packing as it replaces a heap of other products.

I use it as an in flight moisturizer, to give my skin an overnight boost, on spots, scrapes and blisters, a cuticle treatment, hand cream, lip balm and shine, to shine cheeks and eyelids, gloss for eyelashes, on cracked heels and (sparingly) on dry split ends.

Effective, but overpowering smell.

This is effective for dry patches that have failed other creams, however I still have the same tube after 4 years as I can only use it occasionally, due to its smell.

Fantastic ointment, the smell grows on you!

I love this, I got onto it by reading about Posh Spice's love for this product (sad but true!). It has an interesting smell, and I wasn't expecting it to be dark orange, however the gel-type consistency is fantastic, and suitable for many areas of the face. I get slightly dry elbows and I find it fantastic for that too, and it doesn't cause a skin irritation, unlike some other options. It is a fair bit more expensive than say Vaseline, however the tube lasts a long time, and fits in my handbag nicely.


Dry skin, mainly on your face, but I also use it for my elbows.

All Purpose Balm

recently I went on a trip to India and found this product really helpful and handy in many situations.
One evening I was at the Red Fort Delhi watching the sound and light show and was bitten by mosquitoes all over my feet and arms. the next day I itched and itched and itched. out of frustration i searched my bag for some relief and grabbed my eight hout tube and smeared my whole body with it. it worked wonders stopped the itching immediately. i did this repeatedly every time my body itched and each time this cream stopped the itching. the end result was also lovely smooth skin.
used it for dry hands during the trip.
Used it as lipgloss , while on the plane used it as a moisturiser as my skin was flaking .
I will never travel without this all purpose balm. as i had weight restriction i did not carry too many beauty products because I wanted tyo save space for shopping. This product worked for so many things and saved me from lugging around too many products.

a holy grail product

I absolutely cannot live without this. I have very dry lips and this work wonders for them. A little really goes a long way and I've even got my dad onto it, since he has the same dry lips. I also use it on dry elbows and knees and for soothing dry/chaffed parts of my feet (thank you, high heels).

I know some people don't like the smell but I personally find the medicinal/herbal smell very soothing.

Ideal for

dry spot, minor cuts and abrasions
