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.

Description says originally developed in the 1930s? I hope the recipe has changed since then. I don't know that I would even use the rest of the sample. Smell is unpleasant. Maybe I would use it on my feet?

Cream Protectant

I used this on my hands, and while they were softer in the morning, I don't think this works any better than my lotions. I didn't like the sticky texture or the smell, which was overpowering and did not smell good.

Smells terrible. Felt like poorly scented Vaseline. So many other products I would use before it.

for chapped lips... AND skin?
Sampled

I assumed this was for general skincare, then read the directions before using it. I used a reasonable amount on my dry lips and felt it wasn't really as effective as other lip products I own and use. it literally feels like it shouldn't be for lips or skin, but is for lips and skin ...

It stinks
Sampled

The product is thick but easy to squeeze out of the tube. It claims to be good for all kinds of skin issues but it smells very sulfur like. The scent and texture remind me of Calmoseptine ointment with very similar claims. If you need a good all purpose cream/ointment buy some Aquphor cream.

The smell and texture- gross
Sampled

The smell was so strong. I really hate artificial, toxic smelling products and this was exactly that. The texture was not good and did not go onto my skin nicely. I find that this line of products always smells bad! Won't even finish the teeny sample

I can't even get past the smell to use this. Maybe it works but it smells like chemicals.

Petroleum jelly
Sampled

Its got nourishing ingredients but is basically petroleum jelly with a great smell.
Other ingredients make up less than 10% of product. Gets it done
