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.

Horrific smell

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 hated the oiliness and waxy, sticky texture it honestly just grossed me out way too much to even leave on my skin for more than a few minutes.

It's a very thick emollient, which usually means it's a great overnight hydrating treatment, but the smell is not worth it. It is not very pleasant smelling. I think the biggest turnoff is that it has petrolatum, a bi-product of gasoline. No thank you!

Yuck!

Not a fan at all!! I don't like the jelly texture at all, very sticky, awful scent. I can see it potentially being super hydrating, but there are plenty of products that birchbox has that are more pleasant.

The only reason I tried this was because it was in my limited edition box. I didn't seek it out at all! Certainly don't recommend.

This product stinks like cheap ointment. That would be fine if it actually did something.. I tried this on a dry spot in my hands and it did nothing.. also impossible to absorb. Very oily texture.

I will not use this. The smell is horrible and very strong! It is very thick and moisturizing. I might use it for my cuticles...but the smell is so bad I might just throw it out.

Horrible Scent and Consistency
Sampled

This really grossed me out. It felt like Vaseline and had a terrible and lingering gasoline-like scent to it. Will never use this.

I found this product to be just like Neosporin. I'm not sure why it would be labeled as a moisturizer, I would never use it as that. I tried it on my lips when they were dry and cracked and could not stand the smell or texture. Terrible product.
