It's no secret that celebrities have access to the best skincare products on the planet. But as Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney Kardashian, Reese Witherspoon, Gal Gadot, and more prove, taking care of your skin doesn't have to drain your bank account (though Kim, in particular, is no stranger to luxury products). As E! News reports, these women (and countless others) swear by an inexpensive, 88-year-old classic for moisturising their skin: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant ($28). Due to its cult celebrity status, the formula reportedly sells every 15 seconds.
Kourtney actually named-dropped the product in a recent interview with V Magazine. "I love Elizabeth Arden's eight-hour cream," she shared. "It works great when you put [it] on top of … [eye] shadows, making them glossier. I also use it as lip balm and under my eyes. I just love it!" While her sister Kim has yet to sing the praises of this hero product herself, her longtime makeup artist and friend Mario Dedivanovic called it "the secret to Kim's glow," recounts Fashionista. "The texture, similar to Vaseline, is balm-like; it lends a perfect shimmer that's ideal for red carpets," they explain.
Reese Witherspoon's makeup artist, Molly Stern, is also a fan of Arden's Eight Hour range, which probably has something to do with the fact that Witherspoon is currently a brand ambassador. Nevertheless, the actress's flawless red carpet looks are the result of countless Elizabeth Arden products, including the Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist ($38), which Stern uses to prime and moisturise Witherspoon's face before applying makeup.
