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.

Worked for circles & dryness under eyes.
Sampled

I thought this was going to be a lotion/cream, but it turns out it’s more like a thick petroleum jelly. After a couple nights of absolutely no sleep the area underneath my eyes was really dry, so I decided to give this a try. Worked like a charm! It was a little sticky but not too much so. By the afternoon my eyes were back to normal, even more hydrated than usual. Then I slapped a little on my lips and cuticles, where it worked equally well. Will I purchase again: It’s a tad pricey so I might grab a little container of Vaseline

Multi-Use
Sampled

I was not sure what this was for, and I thought it smelled strange. However, I soon found a number of uses for it! I used it to smooth down my brows, rubbed it on the dry skin on my cheeks and lips, and rubbed it into my elbows, knees, and dry cuticles. Turns out a nice fancy goop like this can have many uses.

Eh

I didn't really feel this did anything for my skin. I have sensitive dry skin and have to use a specific moisturizer. This didn't irritate my skin but also did not help me at all.

Very Heavy
Sampled

This cream is very heavy...too heavy for my combination skin. Would be great for very dry skin. I did however apply liberally to my dry hands before bed and they were soft and moisturized in the morning!

works but smells
Sampled

like many others have said this stuff definitely has a unique smell which you might not like wearing. It kind of smells like spicey herbs or clove. Though it smells it does work really well at locking in moisture. Iv used it on my hands and cuticles and it works well. You only have to use a very small amount!

Just Ok
Sampled

I did like how this cream stuck to my skin and had staying power...but it did have a very "band-aide" smell to it.

Great product but bad scent
Sampled

This product came at the perfect time for my winter chapped skin. I use the skin protectant several times a day on my severely cracked knuckles and have seen significant improvement. The salve is a bit greasy at first but absorbs quickly. The only downside to this product is the extremely strong smell.

Greasy and Smelly, Gets the Job Done
Sampled

Just as my title suggests, this is a greasy, SMELLY product that works decently. I have dry, cracked hands as it is still very winter-ish here in New England and I used it on them prior to going to bed and I woke up to smooth hands. This is wonderful but I can't imagine that they couldn't create a nicer smelling product to do the same job with the same great results. And to suggest that you might use this on your face? Yeah, maybe if you weren't leaving your house for a month. I'll use up my samples but I'm not going to purchase this.
