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.

Smells Terrible
Sampled

I found this smelled too strong to put on my lips. It was very thick and a little goes a long way. I'll save this for my cuticles, but stick to something else for chapped or dry lips.

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.
