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.

Smells like Band-Aids
Sampled

Before sampling, I had heard that this was some sort of miracle-cream. This stuff smells disgusting. It's like band-aids and hospitals and death all rolled into one sticky ointment. I wouldn't want to use this even if I were burned and this stuff was the only ointment available. Awful. Really awful.

Repackaged A&D ointment

This product smells, looks and works exactly like A&D ointment. I do not recommend it. Also, the product labeling is very misleading. I was under the impression it was a face and body moisturizer. It is completely oily and there is no way this stuff would be safe to smear all over your face. Maybe for very dried and chapped skin. But the label needs to make that clear. Regardless, it’s A&D ointment that you could purchase at a fraction of the cost in a drug store.

Hate It
Sampled

I absolutely hated this product. The scent is awful and it's too greasy for me.

Offensive fragrance & too greasy/waxy
Sampled

I applied a small dab of this product to the dry areas on my face and immediately threw the rest of the sample away. The fragrance is offensive and smells like motor oil. The feel is sticky, waxy, and greasy; MUCH too heavy for the face. If the smell was more palatable, perhaps this would be appealing for rough/cracking feet & elbows. I don't see how this is any more effective than Vaseline.

really?

The sample of this eight hour cream is a joke there isn't even enough to put on my face to try out, so I can't even be a fair enough review.

It smells awful

I really couldn't get over how bad this smelled. It was really greasy, and I would never ever ever put it on my face. I used it on my hands but couldn't handle how bad it smelled. I tried to wash it off and spend 10 minutes scrubbing my hands and they are still super greasy and smell bad. I would definitely not buy this. It smelled like I rubbed petroleum into my skin.

Not for me!
Sampled

I think this product needs to come with different instructions-something about using only a small amount, and I feel like it should only be applied to certain areas of the body. I can't imagine putting this on my face, arms or legs. I was put off by the smell, it was very oily and left me feeling sticky. I ended up applying it to really dry areas (elbows, knees and tops of feet.) I'd have applied it to the bottom of my feet if I had some socks to put them in. I think I'd have been slipping around my hardwoods otherwise. I'm sure it's an effective product, may need to bring it in and not market for general use.

Get Vaseline--it's much cheaper

The main ingredient in this is a petroleum product. Seriously? It smells bad, is way to thick and greasy to use really anywhere, and overall is a terrible product.
