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.

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!

my favorite

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!

Really Interesting - and Effective - Product

Wow, what a surprise when I pricked a little hole in my sample packet and squeezed out the product! I expected a rich white cream; instead it's a lanolin-based ointment of sorts. All I know is, I put it on my face this morning and my skin has NEVER felt like this before: moist, plump, protected, all buttered up. This definitely isn't to wear to the office or out on a date, but I can totally see using this as a rich overnight treatment, out for a day of skiing or just walking in the cold weather, or when your skin is dry and peeling. I think I'm gonna buy it! Very interesting product.

I love this product. I have combination skin but little dry patches at the jaw line. I use this cream and it helps with the dryness. I recommend this product.

Moisturizes everything
Purchased

This skin cream is a simple product that you can use for so many things. I use on lips, cuticles and unruly eye brows. It is not really pricey and lasts forever. A basic that is great to travel with. Replaces multiple products
