It's an oldie but a goodie. 

It seems like every week, there's a launch of a new face cream or moisturizer, leaving us feeling inundated with the promises of healthy, hydrated or more youthful-looking skin. While this serves as an opportunity for beauty buffs to try and test the industry's latest advances, sometimes, sticking to what already works is the best thing you can do for skin. Enter: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant ($22), the multi-purpose moisturizer Hollywood sirens have been using for the last 88 years. It's still a favorite among celebs like Reese WitherspoonYara Shahidi, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and, yes, even Queen Elizabeth II

"I love Elizabeth Arden's eight-hour cream," Kourtney revealed to V Magazine, in which she also shared her under-the-radar foundation. "It works great when you put them on top of these shadows, making them glossier. I also use it as lip balm and under my eyes."

The golden-yellow balm (not actually a cream, despite its name) can be used to add a sheen, as the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star suggested, but to also hydrate cuticles, sunburns and dry hands and even to shape brows. Basically, anywhere you'd use other cult-favorites like Glossier Balm Dotcom, Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré or even Vaseline, you could use this salicylic acid, vitamin E, petrolatum-laden formula.

Considering Gal Gadot also uses this must-have when she travels, it's no wonder the product sells every 15 seconds, according to the brand.
