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.

Soo oily!

I tried the sample version of this, and maybe mine had just gone bad or something, but it was super oily and gross, like the consistency of olive oil. It rubbed off on everything, and was really just a mess

Weird Color, not that moisturizing!

turned my skin a weird orange tint and was not that moisturizing. Think it may have actually made my elbows dry out faster than usual.

Yuck!

I didn't like this 8 hour cream at all. It was super thick, and left my face sticky. It also had a funky smell. I only used it once, and I felt my hair getting stuck to my face throughout the day. YUCK!

Hated it!

I felt like I had just used a can of Vaseline on my skin. I threw away the remainder of my samples

Too Thick and Greasy

I was not impressed with this product. It was too Thick and Greasy to use even in small amounts. It probably does work well for really dry skin but it takes too long to rub in for my taste.

Yucky Smell

This product might be awesome at what it does, but i just couldn't get over the smell. I put it in my lips one night before I went to bed and had to get up and wash it off. it seemed to hydrate while it was on... but that wasn't for very long.

Awful

Smelled awful and was sticky. I tried some on my face and immediately washed it off- did not feel good. Glad I had a sample because I would be very disappointed if I actually bought this.

i don't get it

a cult product? for years, i've heard about it's magical powers. and i'm sure it works wonders.
you will love it - IF - you can get past the smell of gasoline. if you're into that sort of thing, it's awesome. i prefer aquaphor, it's got no aroma, does the trick, and costs 1/3 of the price.
nostalgia, you didn't sell me this time.

Not too crazy about this one.

This product was way too thick for me and did not have a pleasant fragrance. I don't know that I would call this a cream as much as I would call it a balm.

Don't bother...

I have VERY dry hands and I'm always interested in finding a good hand lotion that soothes but is not greasy. This product had a horrible smell and it was so greasy and it didn't work at all. I stopped using my current hand cream to try this one but this cream left me with dry cracked hands. So, now I'm back to my old cream.
