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 was going to try this on my face but after opening the sample and seeing the texture, I used it on my hands, forearms, and elbows. There was enough in the sample packet to share with my roommate. It was effective but I didn't care for the gooey texture or medicinal smell. I will use the second sample packet on my feet or a sunburn. The scent and texture is too off-putting for me to purchase this product.

It smelt nasty. Like a room with wet paint. It was horrid. I also thought it made me feel like I had endless cakey makeup on my face. It made me feel like a zombie. I hated this product. Thank god the sample wash't large at all.

Nothing special
Sampled

I didn't care for this. I didn't try it on my face, I thought it smelled funny.. I used it on my hands at night but it was greasy,thick and it did not seem to do much for my dry hands.

not impressed
Sampled

I didn't really like this stuff. The smell is so plastic/chemically. it seems like an expensive petroleum jelly. I tried using this on chapped lips and aside from the taste/smell being bad, within a few minutes it was melting off. I tried using it on some dry patches of skin on my legs and didnt notice any improvement there either. It is way too sticky to use on my hands. Not something i would buy.

Odd sample
Sampled

Elizabeth Arden has always reminded me of something my grandmother would use. There is not enough of a sample to really determine how well it would work. Sticking with my dermacological.

Hand Cream
Sampled

I will say that this product, used as a hand cream, kept my skin moist throughout the whole day, which is nice since I live in the desert and constantly have to reapply other lotions. However, the scent was medicinal and overpowering.

if you like oil rigs
Sampled

From the package description, I thought this would be a heavy face moisturizer. It's more like a combination of thick Vaseline and motor oil mixed together. I slathered it all over my face at bedtime, then couldn't sleep because of the strong motor oil smell, and the fear I was destoying my pillows with it. It may work, but unless you plan to sleep with noseplugs and upright, it isn't worth it. Incredible how bad it smells - they should at least give a hint at that on packaging.

nice product, horrible smell
Sampled

I liked the moisterizing aspect of this product. As someone who lives ina dry climate, it felt very nice on my skin. However, I could not get past the terrible and rather strong smell. It was too powerful and overwhelming for my face. I would buy this if it wasn't for the smell.

not that impressed
Sampled

I know this product has been around for quite some time however I really was not blown away by it at all. It seemed greasy and mostly comprised of mineral oil-yuck. It would be good for chapped bry lips or feet but I would not want to put it on my face or skill anywhere else. Thick and it had a mineral oil smell. :(

like glue
Sampled

This product feels and smells terrible. The consistency reminds me of a thick glue or paste and the smell is...just horrendous. I have honestly never encountered a beauty product that smells this bad. I almost wonder whether there was something wrong with my sample.
