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.

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.

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.
