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

This sat on top of the dry skin on my hands, smelling nasty and providing a very thick layer that did not absorb into my skin. It did last a while, as I tried to scrub it off and it took several washings. I am not happy that this contains mineral oil and BHT. It seems like this works for most people; unfortunately, not for me.

Not for me. The scent isn't that great either. I'd rather look for something different that does the same thing.

icky smell
Sampled

I got this as a sample and the smell and texture were not for me. It was really goopy and the smell was not pleasant. It definitely worked to hydrate my skin, but I felt uncomfortable touching my face after it was on my hands because it is so think. Even after washing my hands for a while I felt like there was still residue on them.

This product is like a smellier, oilier version of Vaseline. It reeks of Lanolin.

Smelly

I will admit that this stuff works, I've used it both on my cuticles and lips and it works wonders however I can't bring myself to buy this due to the smell..it smells something between a bandaid and a latex glove. No thanks.

Too thick!
Sampled

This is way too thick to use as an ordinary 8-hour skin moisturizer. Sun burns and cuticle beds? Sure. On my regular face? No way! Too goey.

Rename it. not a daily face moisturizer.

I was surprised how thick and greasy this was. I thought it would be a face lotion type cream. I think it is for very chapped times. For lips when they are very chapped. It is very expensive. Quality but I think it should be renamed.

Awful smell

I would have loved to have been able to try this cream for all the different purposes mentioned, however, I simply could not STAND the smell of it! As soon as I moisturized with it, I had to wash it off. Even after that, the smell lingered. Wish I could report on effectiveness, but just not possible for me.

Not a Favorite

I was not happy about receiving this product -- lanolin is an outdated ingredient, and there are tons of better moisturizers out there with much more advanced formulations..

Sticky

While this certainly accomplishes its task of moisturizing and protecting, I found it to sticky for my liking. It's like an ointment.
