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.

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

Great for moisture, awful smell
Sampled

This product is great if you need to lock in moisture and hydrate some dry areas, but man...the smell is awful! In small doses it's OK, but don't attempt to cover a larger area as it can get overwhelming.

Goopy Smelly

I thought the description of the product didn't relay the "balm" texture of the product. Too sticky and smelly for my taste.

Works well, odd smell

I like this stuff - it smells a bit weird, but once you get used to that, it's great for chapped lips or skin. I especially like putting it on lips/cuticles/chapped skin overnight (have it on now).

this product is very thick and rich and great for lips, eyes,legs,hair EVERYTHING!! Just use it sparingly and it will last a long time and do the trick!

Sticky

I understand that this is a product that has been around for years, but I don't really understand its use beyond lip balm. I looked it up online and it says to use it for making my eyelids and legs shiny, which is something I've never considered...nor do I think I might. I did use it on my cuticles and it worked nicely, but it's pretty sticky to use as a lotion in my opinion. It kind of smells weird too.

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.

Didn't work for me
Sampled

I have extremely dry cuticles - I have used numerous creams, lotions, etc.... and I had high hopes for this product. I will not use this on my cuticles again due to its smell (strong and lingers...I wouldn't mind strong if it didn't linger but it remained after several hours); greasyness (it has the consistency of an ointment and remained greasy on my fingers for at least 15 minutes - this would be problematic in application in every situation except before going to bed) and overall ineffectiveness.... After about an hour, my fingers/cuticles felt just as they did before applying the cream... Not a winner for me... I will attempt to use this on my lips and other areas before I totally give up on it but at this point I would not recommend it.

I am so in love with this product! I suffer from excema year round and this has been the ONLY product that has not only cleared my dry, inflammed, flakey skin but improved the overall texture and brightness. For years I have tried creams, ointments both perscribed and over the counter and this is by far the most effective. I love how rich it is but it still feels light on your face, I have also come to love the smell of it! To excema/ dry skin sufferers this is the product to use!!!
