Birchbox Breakdown

Elizabeth Arden’s apricot-hued cream is such a classic, we think it deserves a display in the Smithsonian. Developed in 1930 by the beauty maven herself, the award-winning formula enjoyed instant global success and has never gone out of style. The creamy, multi-purpose salve not only hydrates dry skin, it adds shine to lips and lids, tames unruly brows, conditions cuticles, and even soothes minor scrapes and sunburns.

How to Use

The sky’s the limit. Apply a generous amount onto skin to combat dryness, sunburn, or redness anytime and anywhere. Or dab a small amount onto brows to keep unruly hairs in line; smooth onto lips, cheekbones, and lids for a glossy, fresh-off-the-runway look; massage into dry cuticles and rough heels; or use as a post-shave treatment.

A beauty classic

My mom always had this with her. She uses it on cuts and burns and sunburned areas. However, she never used it as a moisturizer. Seriously, though, this is pretty thick and extremely hydrating and kinda greasy, which would most likely make your face break out if you use it as a facial moisturizer. My lips have been extremely chapped the past few days, so I thought I should put some of the product on my lips to rehydrate them overnight. It unfortunately didn't work as well as usual, and so that's why I took off a star. My lips are still really chapped despite repeated applications... Other than that, this is a great product. My only other note is that there are many similar products for less money that work about the same in my opinion.

Horrific smell
Sampled

I love all purpose skin protectants. I was very excited for this sample. Maybe it works well on the skin, but it's impossible to know because this stuff smells horrible. I'm not sensitive to smells and I can stand a lot, but this stuff made me wretch. It smells like someone sprayed generic flower air freshener in a hospital corridor. The smell lingers on the skin as long as the product is there, so I had to wash it off. I have to ask, did I get a rancid sample, or is this stuff supposed to smell like this?

I mean... it's face cream

I mean it honestly feels like every other moisturizer I've ever used, so I wouldn't repurchase because of the price

Not my cup of tea
Sampled

This is basically a glorified, overpriced petroleum jelly. It says good for cracked lips but tastes and smells gross and does little to make my lips soft. I'm not impressed. I could see using it as a cuticle cream though, but for the price it just isn't worth it.
