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.

The sample of this eight hour cream is a joke there isn't even enough to put on my face to try out, so I can't even be a fair enough review.

It smells awful

I really couldn't get over how bad this smelled. It was really greasy, and I would never ever ever put it on my face. I used it on my hands but couldn't handle how bad it smelled. I tried to wash it off and spend 10 minutes scrubbing my hands and they are still super greasy and smell bad. I would definitely not buy this. It smelled like I rubbed petroleum into my skin.

Not for me!

I think this product needs to come with different instructions-something about using only a small amount, and I feel like it should only be applied to certain areas of the body. I can't imagine putting this on my face, arms or legs. I was put off by the smell, it was very oily and left me feeling sticky. I ended up applying it to really dry areas (elbows, knees and tops of feet.) I'd have applied it to the bottom of my feet if I had some socks to put them in. I think I'd have been slipping around my hardwoods otherwise. I'm sure it's an effective product, may need to bring it in and not market for general use.

Get Vaseline--it's much cheaper

The main ingredient in this is a petroleum product. Seriously? It smells bad, is way to thick and greasy to use really anywhere, and overall is a terrible product.

Not what I expected

I thought this would be a moisturizer for hands/face, but it was instead a thick, syrupy type of ointment. I can't imagine using this. Maybe it will work for cuts and burns, but I can't get past the awful smell.

Greasy and Smelly
Sampled

I disliked the smell and ended up washing my hands several times to get it off me. It is greasy and takes too long to absorb.

I don't care for the feel of the product on my skin, it's a bit greasy feeling. I don't care for the smell. While it's a good earthy smell it's just not for me.

There are better modern items
Sampled

This could be modernized with better ingredients and perhaps not so gooey/sticky. I can't think of anything I could really use this for. Maybe cuticles I suppose.

This sat on top of the dry skin on my hands, smelling nasty and providing a very thick layer that did not absorb into my skin. It did last a while, as I tried to scrub it off and it took several washings. I am not happy that this contains mineral oil and BHT. It seems like this works for most people; unfortunately, not for me.

Not for me. The scent isn't that great either. I'd rather look for something different that does the same thing.
