Cross that one off my list

My friend Lisa is on bed rest right now and Susann and I went to visit her on Monday. We went to Ulta first to get a few pampering products...

First of all, not everyone loves products like I do...Susann was so uncomfortable with all the lotions and potions, I thought she might break out in hives...

Secondly, we settled on Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturizing Hand Treatment. I've heard such great things about it and have been dying to try it for years...Lisa and I opened it up and I was quite disappointed. The cream is great - very true to its name - intensive and moisturizing, but the smell...ugh! I hated it...it smelled like a combination of medicine and an old lady - nothing against the elderly - I just don't want to smell like a grandmother for several more years.

I love that you tell us about the products that you love as well as the products that are not worth the money! Thanks Ferret!

If you do find a truly good intensive hand or foot creme that doesn't smell so strong then let me know! I have an addiction to lotion :)

Meryl, I wonder where you get that from.

That store freaks me out a little.

Did you ever use the original eight-hour cream? It was amazing...put it on anything (cut, burn, irritation), and it was gone. Stinky, sure, but unreal. They've apparently stopped making the original multi-purpose cream in favor of a line of specialized products.
