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.

Not for me

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.

Too Thick & Stinks
Sampled

This stuff is thicker than Vaseline, and it smells like a medicine cabinet. I tried it on my dry knuckles, and it felt like I had grease all over me. It definitely stays on for 8 hours, even when you try to wash it off...don't know if that's a pro or con!

Weird goopy stuff
Sampled

I saw this in the March box and went to try it the next day, but was completely disappointed with it. It is a weird, goopy gold colored substance. It smelled like gasoline and felt greasy on my face. It didn't seem to absorb at all and I regreted putting it on my skin. Definitely will not be buying.

I just didn't like this product at all. It is very thick,sticky and oily & to top it off - the smell is terrible. The smell is so awful, that I couldn't use it. I tried it on my legs that were dry & peeling. It was moisturizing but the smell was so bad, I washed it of.

This is not a cream...
Sampled

This was thick and greasy. It smelled bad. I put some on my face and left it for about 45 seconds before washing it off. It made my skin feel dirty. I would not recommend this to anyone!

Arden "fragrance"?
Sampled

I was excited about getting an Elizabeth Arden sample since she is such a big name in cosmetics, and for such a long time. After I put on the Eight Hour Cream, I felt like I had just fallen into a vat of break fluid, or something like that to grease parts of a vehicle. Had to wash it off immediately!

The smell was too strong, and smelled like medicine. I did leave it on overnight and did not see any significant effects than if I had just used a good moisturizer. This product is not for me.

it works but....

I think there are other products for less that work just as well and smell a lot better.

gross
Sampled

I read a few reviews before trying this product. I thought for sure the reviews were over reactions. Nope. This is in no way a "cream" or something I would put on my face. I was going to put it on my cuticles but couldn't stand the texture or smell. I immediately washed it off, which took lots of soap and vigorous scrubbing because of the lanolin content. The color and smell make me think it's old, but by the other reactions that must just be how it always is. Gross.
