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.

Multipurpose wonder.

I love this product! A little goes a long way and there are so many ways to use it. I use it daily on my lips and I like to add whatever product is left to my cuticles. It's too gooey to use as a normal moisturizer so I'll apply it to areas that need some extra moisture before going to sleep. I also use it for "no makeup" days, I'll put a tiny bit on my eyelids, above my cheekbones and on my lips. If I want a dewy look I'll add a very small amount to a cream blush and use it on my cheeks, lips and sometimes as an eyeshadow, it looks very natural and pretty, like you just went running through a field (minus the running and the allergies).

I love this stuff!

I have been using this for years and a little bit goes a long way. I primarily use it for my lips, but it is great for little dry spots on my face, or for keeping my cuticles in good shape. The smell is very nice, and I like the bit of sheer orange color on my lips. My daughter loves it, too.

Takes more than one use

When first opened, the smell is not inviting. When first used, it seems greasy. However, I stuck with it and found the smell dissipates and that over time works fairly well. It's no miracle, but skin does show improvement.

Amazing!

This product does it all! It heals cracked heels, chapped skin, cuts, etc. When my skin is super dry after skiing, I love using this product.

Saved my skin!
Purchased

I have not only extremely dry, older skin, but eczema as well and have always had difficulty keeping it moisturized. My skin never felt fresh before, but rather lizard-like.
Now after using E.Arden's Cream several times a week I can feel and see my skin's suppleness returning.

Loved the product, not the smell

I LOVED the way this cream made my skin feel. As soon as i put it on I could instantly feel and see my skin looking tighter! The smell was not so great, but I still give this 5 stars because it worked so well!

This product is the best!
Purchased

I have used 8 hour cream forever! I used to work the Elizabeth Arden counter back in the 70s and that's when I was first introduced to 8 hour cream. This product is good for anything and everything from first aid to softening skin to lip balm etc. The fragrance has improved since the 70s but the product remains invincible! Nothing comes close, I tried Mary Kay's extra emollient cream but nothing comes close to Elizabeth Arden's most famous 8 hour cream! I wish they made it in super large sizes!

I have really dry skin and it does a good job in hydrating my skin. I use it for my ashy elbows and my chapped lips. I like this product because it's multi-purpose meaning I can use it for just about anything including sunburns!
