Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant

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.

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
Sampled

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.

Great Brand, but TINY SAMPLE
Sampled

I was so excited when I got the preview, that this brand was included because I really wanted to try their moisturizer however the sample was tiny! What does that brand think of the consumer, if it is trying to share their brand, but do not give enough of a sample to even apply twice to the face. So disapinted

Great for winter skin...
Sampled

My face dries out terribly in the winter months, and this is great to apply before bed...it is very thick and creamy, and can leave your face feeling greasy, but I've never had any breakouts because of using this product.

Take your time!
Sampled

At first this product will feel like Vaseline on the skin. But I assure you in 60 seconds it will melt - absorb into the skin for maximum hydration! This product is a winner if you are looking for maximum hydration !

Gross
Sampled

This is the first sample I ever got that I truly hated. Given the brand, I'm willing to consider that I might have gotten a "bad one," but this was a gross orange sticky mess that smelt awful and I couldn't even get it spread across my skin. No way will I ever by this on.
