The appeal of a multitasking skincare product is undeniable, especially given Catherine Zeta-Jones' favorite moisturizer is Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. The Chicago actress is often credited with being one of the most beautiful women in the world, so any intel into her beauty regime is always welcome.
Apparently her love affair with Eight Hour Cream - one of the best moisturizers for dry skin - is bit of a family tradition as her grandma used it, as did her mom and now Zeta-Jones can't live without it, either, as she revealed to her followers during a Q&A on her Instagram last year.
“I was the face of Elizabeth Arden for many years, but I used the Eight Hour cream before that because my grandmother used it. It was the only cream she ever bought and it was the answer to everything,” Zeta-Jones, told Glamour. “If you cut yourself, you put it on. If you have a sunburn, you put it on.”

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is a bestseller in its own right with one selling every 30 seconds worldwide. The apricot-coloured balm first launched way back in 1930, its blend of vitamin E and petrolatum designed to soothe the skin of clients at Arden's Red Door salon in New York.
Legend has it that the name came about when one of Arden's regular clients used it on a grazed knee and eight hours later the skin was healed.
But it's those said multitasking benefits that explain it's popularity. “I have been using [it] for at least 10 years as my only cream. It is the best thing for my rosacea [sic],” one Ulta reviewer wrote. Others use it on cracked heels and chapped lips.
And if you can also add Zeta-Jones' perennially glowing skin to that list of beauty benefits, then, really, what's not to love?
