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.

Still the same product style. Reminds me of my grandmother still. And a sample I could get at the mall. BirchBox you could have done better on this one.

Yuck

This is a hand moisturizer that feels thick and goopy. I hated how it felt and smelled. In fact I have never been so relieved to wash my hands. Yuck not buying this.

Smells Like Medicine
Sampled

The texture and color of this product remind me of the paste you use a brush to spread sand it smells like a mix of BenGay, medicine and disinfectant.

I don't get it
Sampled

SO upon getting this sample I just "cream skin protectant" and automatically thought it was for your hands. I learned a life lesson while using this product: always smell things first. I applied a small amount on my hands and was alarmed at how much it looked like maple syrup. Then I smelt it-to me it smelt like burnt bacon-I despise the smell! I work with animals and have to wash my hands so much that they get so dry. I was hoping this would help but the smell lingered and I had to wash it off. As I read the card with my samples listed on it I realized it says to use it on lips, cuticles and skin such as eyelids or eyebrows. At least I was semi-right to apply it to my hands but it was to thick it didn't rub in other then the area I dabbed onto my palm. I don't really understand this product since it can be applied to so many areas yet with how awful it smells I would NEVER want to try it on my lips or how thick it is I would NEVER apply to my eyelids or eyebrows in fear it would act like wax. Overall I just despise this product. Super bummed!

Love Elizabeth Arden Products

I was really excited to see an Elizabeth Arden Product. That was until I tried it. Very disappointed. I've used Elizabeth Arden Product for years. Hopefully it was just a bad batch.

Super Greasy and Smells Grosse!
Sampled

This product is horrible. It's supposed to be mainly for lips but it smells extremely grosse, to the point of not being bearable, and pretty much has the texture and greasiness of car oil. You'd be better off buying petroleum jelly -- it's cheaper and doesn't smell nasty.

Not for Me

I couldn't get passed the horrible smell of this product. Definitely not something I will ever use. I might give it a try if it didn't smell so bad.

The smell, yuck!

If you can get over the strong old lady smell to even try it, it's like Vaseline. I'll stick with my Aquaphor, thanks.
