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.

Disappointing
Sampled

I was excited to try this product and was totally disappointed. It smells terrible and is incredibly thick, sticky and greasy. I ended up throwing the sample away.

Not for Me

I have excema/sensitive skin and this product did not provide a protective or moisturizing barrier. Instead it left a filmy and greasy finish. I was very disappointed with the results.

STICKY AND GREASY

HATED! ABSOLUTELY HATED! I was excited to rip open the package and put it on a burn on my face and it actually made me breakout. Nasty smell and terrible texture. I hated it. It isn't even worth a penny. Nasty.

Nasty!

Basically Vaseline with a nasty smell. For your car -- or as EA used it, your horse -- not your skin.

Horrid

Both my husband detested the smell on the first sample. We threw out the rest.

Gross!
Sampled

This is nothing more than orange-tinted petrolatum (Vaseline) with a terrible fragrance. I thought perhaps the sample had an off-fragrance so I smelled the product in a department store and it still smelled vile.

Fancy petroleum jelly
Sampled

This smells just like A&D ointment and petroleum jelly. Way to over-priced for what it is and the smell is horrible. I tried it as a lip balm and on my dry feet and it does moisturize but I had to wash it off because I didn't like the way I smelled.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream

Although I usually love Elizabeth Arden products, this isn't one of them. I found it to bee far too heavy and greasy.

yuck....

First off, I put this on thinking it was a sample of lotion... Only to realize how thick and gross feeling it was.

I would never purchase this. I am not a floral sent gal....

I'm not sure if the samples I received were as they were supposed to be, but mine (both) were a goopy brownish glue like substance that was sticky and uncomfortable on my face. I immediately removed it and threw the other one away when I confirmed it was the same consistency, color, etc.
