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.

Ehhh not for me

It's a bit greasy feeling & I don't really care for the smell. Overall, just not for me.

Not For Me
Sampled

This was like putting vasilene mixed with honey on my face. It was so heavy I felt like I was greasing my face. On of my least favoriates.

Not for me
Sampled

I didn't really like this product. That's not to say it is a bad product, it just doesn't work for me, and here's why. It's not really a cream, more like an ointment consistency. I put some on my hands which get pretty dry, and it was sort of sticky like neosporin, and it didn't smell "good", it smelled like Lanolin, which is one of the ingredients in it. I tried to wash it off after that, using soap and warm water, and my hands still smelled and felt like the cream. If you're looking for serious dry skin relief that lasts, I'm sure this would work, but it was too much for me.

Smells like Band-Aids
Sampled

Before sampling, I had heard that this was some sort of miracle-cream. This stuff smells disgusting. It's like band-aids and hospitals and death all rolled into one sticky ointment. I wouldn't want to use this even if I were burned and this stuff was the only ointment available. Awful. Really awful.

Repackaged A&D ointment

This product smells, looks and works exactly like A&D ointment. I do not recommend it. Also, the product labeling is very misleading. I was under the impression it was a face and body moisturizer. It is completely oily and there is no way this stuff would be safe to smear all over your face. Maybe for very dried and chapped skin. But the label needs to make that clear. Regardless, it’s A&D ointment that you could purchase at a fraction of the cost in a drug store.

Offensive fragrance & too greasy/waxy
Sampled

I applied a small dab of this product to the dry areas on my face and immediately threw the rest of the sample away. The fragrance is offensive and smells like motor oil. The feel is sticky, waxy, and greasy; MUCH too heavy for the face. If the smell was more palatable, perhaps this would be appealing for rough/cracking feet & elbows. I don't see how this is any more effective than Vaseline.
