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.

I really don't like the smell! I rarely have dry skin, so I tried this product on the bottom of my feet and it definitely made them so smooth and moisturized! I don't know if I would use it anywhere else though; it feels too heavy.

Rich moisture
Sampled

I have very sensitive skin. In the winter months, I have rough, dry patches on my upper arms. I smoothed this thick, waxy cream onto my skin and have already noticed a difference. While it smells a bit medicinal, it's great at smoothing away rough patches. Once I'm through my samples, I may be purchasing!

Great, but needs sunscreen!
Sampled

Elizabeth Arden has been a name in beauty products since long before I was born, and while I really liked this cream, I much prefer to have sunscreen in my face products. Sunspot and wrinkle protection outweigh a luxurious "feel" every day of the week.

great for super dry skin

I have super dry skin and this is great stuff for the windy winter months. Don't know if the thickness would be the best for the hot/humid summer, but nice for now!!

Vaseline substitute

This isn't a great moisturizer, but it works well on protecting recent rope burns.

it's okay
Sampled

I tried this and it worked okay, but I always think of Elizabeth Arden as a brand for much older women - which I'm not.

love it

I recently bought a new face cream, so I put this cream in my bag to use during the day on my hands and cuticles. It was wonderful. I have really dry hands that I am constantly having to moisturize, and this did the trick

This product worked well on my dry winter skin, but the smell is a little strong. I also would never wear this during the day. It's too greasy. I just put it on before I went to bed. Overall, I think Vaseline is still my less pricey dry skin cure.

I like the concept of it, however it is too thick.

Great for dry skin

This is not really a cream, but an ointment. I opened it and knew I wasn't going to use it, however my husband loved it. He has dry, cracking skin on his hands and arms due to his job and has been trying to heal it for months. I put this all over the affected areas last night and this afternoon he said they felt so much better than usual. I will be buying some.
