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.

i don't get it

a cult product? for years, i've heard about it's magical powers. and i'm sure it works wonders.
you will love it - IF - you can get past the smell of gasoline. if you're into that sort of thing, it's awesome. i prefer aquaphor, it's got no aroma, does the trick, and costs 1/3 of the price.
nostalgia, you didn't sell me this time.

Not too crazy about this one.

This product was way too thick for me and did not have a pleasant fragrance. I don't know that I would call this a cream as much as I would call it a balm.

Don't bother...

I have VERY dry hands and I'm always interested in finding a good hand lotion that soothes but is not greasy. This product had a horrible smell and it was so greasy and it didn't work at all. I stopped using my current hand cream to try this one but this cream left me with dry cracked hands. So, now I'm back to my old cream.

TERRIBLE!

This was by far the worst cosmetic experience of my life. Maybe I got a bad sample, but mine were sticky and sweet smelling, like Birchbox sent me melted caramel. I put some on my face, and it took me 20 minutes to get it completely off my face! I could hardly spread it in, it was so thick! I would never suggest anyone use this on any part of their body, especially their face!

Terrible smell.

I only had to use a q-tip size amount to realize that this products smell was not very pleasant. My children even commented on how terrible it smelled. I will not be purchasing this again.

Can make this YOURSELF!!

I would never spend money on this product. The first ingredients are petroleum, mineral oil and lanolin. Lanolin does not have a pleasant smell AT ALL but by itself its a great moisturizer. If you wanna save money, but some vaseline, baby oil and lanolin, mix it up and add your favorite essential oil. Seriously...people pay actually money for this stuff?

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
Sampled

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.
