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.

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.

Not for me

I absolutely hated this product. It smelled horrible and felt like lube grease. Had to wonder why I would want to put this anywhere on my body.

detest the smell

This cream which a friend of mine adores, smells so awful that I could not bear it. I gave it away. It might be super moisturizing but I can't wear anything on my face that smells this bad.

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 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.

Meh

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.
