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.

terrible smell

The product itself works well, but I prefer the Dr. Lipp nipple balm for a comparable product. This has a really really weird chemical type smell to it and for that reason alone I wouldn't purchase it.

Not a big fan of smell
Sampled

I feel like it is good at moisturizing but the smell was a bit more flowery than I care for. Like old school flowery, just not a fan

To me this was just overpriced vaseline. In fact, it kind of has that smell of vaseline.

Weird tedture

I like the idea of this product but it is not as moisturizing or long lasting as I had hoped and the smell is a bit off putting isn't something I would want to wear if I was going anywhere

Terrible smell, sticky texture - you're better off with Aquaphor
Sampled

I tried this product on the back of my hand first, and I immediately ran to the bathroom to wash it off. It has an overpowering fragrance that does NOT smell good to me. The texture is similar to Aquaphor - very sticky. If you use it for burns, scrapes, or damaged skin, then the texture makes sense to me but I would never call it a "cream" - it's more of an ointment. I am currently using a lot of Aquaphor to treat my skin during radiation treatments - in my opinion, you can get a much better-smelling product for much less money with Aquaphor.

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?

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 ...
