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.

Liked it

I liked this product but wouldn't use it as a moisturizer - has a texture like Vaseline so would be way too think to put all over your face

Winter cream
Sampled

It's just beginning to get really cold in Michigan and I'm already noticing my skin and lips are dry all the time. Nice cream for dry spots on hands, face and lips, though too heavy and perfume-y for all over face. I used before bed and didn't bother me too much.

Great for chapped skin, very greasy
Sampled

If I was super chapped on my face or lips I would use this, but the smell sucks and it is so thick. I think that Aquaphor is just as great and less money. The smell was old-ladyish with a strange purfumey hint.

Good but not great for the price
Sampled

I know this is a cult classic product, but it just didn't do much for me. It's basically glorified petroleum jelly - in fact, over half the product is just that. It smells strongly of lanolin, which isn't a favorite scent of mine, at the added fragrance doesn't do anything for me. Overall, it just feels too heavy/thick and smells too old-fashioned. For the price, it's just not worth it to me.

Sticky
Sampled

This one was too sticky for my general liking - I will end up using it as an eyebrow shaper until the sample runs out.

Hydrating but
Sampled

The smell is overpowering. I wore this overnight and my face felt hydrated the next morning but I would only use this on a dry patch in the future.

Greasy
Sampled

This product made my skin look super greasy which isn't what I wanted or expected at all. After I washed my face that night after having it on the whole day it was very moisturized though. But I don't want my face looking greasy the whole day. I suppose if you considered using this product to use it before bedtime so it could soak into your face, and then wash the excess in the morning.

Mixed feelings

I'm not crazy about the scent or texture of this product, but it did help my chapped lips.
