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.

Lives up to the name

This cream is a miracle worker-it just depends on how you use it. It’s a MIRACLE for chub rub, or any kind of minor burn or skin irritation. I had painful inner thigh burns from walking in the summer & put it on before bed and the next morning they were practically gone. I also use it at night on my face mixed with my retinol cream so it doesn’t dry my skin out too much. It’s definitely thick like Vaseline & feels greasy at first but it’s doing its job.

At first this product will feel like Vaseline on the skin. But I assure you in 60 seconds it will melt - absorb into the skin for maximum hydration! This product is a winner if you are looking for maximum hydration !

Gross
Sampled

This is the first sample I ever got that I truly hated. Given the brand, I'm willing to consider that I might have gotten a "bad one," but this was a gross orange sticky mess that smelt awful and I couldn't even get it spread across my skin. No way will I ever by this on.

Weird

Very thick and has a completely different feel than most moisturizers. Would probably only work for people with very, very, very dry skin.

Ok

I like the fact that this product is a multi purpose. Lips, hands and eyes cream is a plus. Not greasy.

Unsure how to use it
Sampled

I like the consistency and smoothness this product provides , but only used it on my lips at night... the smell didn't bother me , I could see having it as a must have during my cold Chicago winters to stave off dry ....everything .
