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.

Effective, but not great
Sampled

It works--my skin is really soft--but it has a really string smell and it's goopy and sticky. Not for me.

Ointment, not cream
Sampled

I was completely disappointed when I opened his product. I expected a luxurious cream and instead I got a goopy brown horrible smelling ointment. It is likely good for the reasons listed on the packaging but I can't stand the smell. I will not be purchasing this product.

Strange...
Sampled

It's a little strange to see the Elizabeth Arden name on this product...it's just so thick, smelly, and gloppy. I couldn't bring myself to try it on my face, so I put in on my feet, but then it stained the socks I was wearing orange. Not for me.

Medicine cabinet
Sampled

This stuff smells horrid. It is unbelievably strong. It smells like a medicine cabinet. While it did control the oil on my face, it also completely blocked my pores. Also, this is made of mineral oil which is horrible for your skin. I will not be purchasing this.

too smelly
Sampled

While I did try to give this product a chance after I realized how strong the smell was, it did work to keep my skin soft and hydrated. The smell was too overbearing.

This wasn't a product I'll be purchasing. Even if it is a great dry-skin treatment and can be used in a bunch of different ways, it has a strong, off-putting scent and a very greasy texture. I didn't realize that when I opened my sample and squeezed a good sized amount into my hands, and then regretted that I'd done so. The package needs better instructions that cautions users to try only a small portion.

So smelly
Sampled

This product does seem effective on really chapped/dry skin or lips (not for every day moisturizing), however, the smell is AWFUL.

Eh

This seemed like it would be very useful to have around because of dry skin in the winter, but it was slightly greasy and didn't seem to help much.
