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.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is a nice, and thick ointment. It does a good job returning moisture to dry hands and feet .It has a medicinal odor though, so for the money i will stick with Vaseline petroleum jelly.

nice smell nice product

I received 2 packets of this lotion. It was a nice scent and my hands and face were soft after using directly after a shower. I would defintely recommend it.

Like it

I actually loved this product. I don't think it's meant to be an all-over moisturizer for all the time. But for really dry skin, I loved it used sparingly. And unlike most everyone it seems, I liked the smell.

Not impressed

I used this sample to moisturize my dry cuticles because I tend to get a lot of hangnails, but I can't say that it helped a whole lot. Maybe I need to use it more often, but I do not like the odd smell of the product and it's more greasy than I would like.

It works

This product works, but I'm not fond of the scent, which is why I only gave it 3 stars. I does heal dry/chapped skin, so if you're o.k. with the scent, go for it.

Useful
Purchased

I bought this because it was a "must have" and the list of uses seemed endless. Multi-functional products are always a winner. As soon as I opened it and put a dab of the orange goop on my hand, I had a total flashback... Sitting at my mom's dressing table and her putting this on everything. I hated that stuff! Now, I give it 3 stars. Use it sparingly or you won't like it! It does everything the review said, just don't plan on falling in love with it.

Scent is a Little Too Strong

I liked that this product could be used in so many different ways. I have a Rose salve in my purse that I use in the same manner, so I was excited to try this. I was impressed with everything except for the scent. Not that it is a bad scent, but to me it smells a little too medicinal.

Not seeing much of a difference

Not too sure if I really need a product like this in my collection and not too sure if it's really helping.

Great after-sun cream
Purchased

I used the sample after spending a day out in the sun on vacation. The next morning I woke up and my skin was refreshed and the chapped, dry look was gone. I liked it so much I purchased it and have used it on subsequent occassions. However, it's a touch too heavy for normal every day/night use. The smell isn't bad but it's not great. It's kind of mediciney BUT it works well so I'm willing to overlook the smell. I'm recommending this cream to use on your face when your skin needs hydration or if you spent a day out in the wind/sun/cold. Also great for hands/cuticles.

Moisturizes great BUT...the smell is repulsive!!!!
Purchased

Like I sd the product is a great moisturizer for hands or whatever you need it for...but the small was just too much to handle. I cant even explain it...kinda like gasoline??? Its just gross. I wanted to use on my lips and I had to wipe off bc of this. If smells dont bother you them this will be a great moisturizer for you. Hope this helps!
