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.

Soo oily!

I tried the sample version of this, and maybe mine had just gone bad or something, but it was super oily and gross, like the consistency of olive oil. It rubbed off on everything, and was really just a mess

Weird Color, not that moisturizing!
Purchased

turned my skin a weird orange tint and was not that moisturizing. Think it may have actually made my elbows dry out faster than usual.

A solid staple.

8 Hour Cream was my go-to nighttime lip balm for YEARS. Simply put - it just works. I'd wake up with lips that felt smooth, soft, and healed (my lips tend to peel a lot during the day, annoyingly). Even the smell didn't bother me. BUT. I do have to admit. After ignoring this stuff for a while and then going back to it, the smell suddenly IS a bit much for me. Luckily, they make a fragrance free version, which is pretty much genius. But regardless of the scent you try, it's pretty easy to see why this is such a constant staple in so many makeup artists' kits.

OVER PRICED

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is a nice, and thick ointment. It does a good job returning moisture to dry hands and feet .It has a medicinal odor though, so for the money i will stick with Vaseline petroleum jelly.

Saved my skin!
Purchased

I have not only extremely dry, older skin, but eczema as well and have always had difficulty keeping it moisturized. My skin never felt fresh before, but rather lizard-like.
Now after using E.Arden's Cream several times a week I can feel and see my skin's suppleness returning.

Like it

I actually loved this product. I don't think it's meant to be an all-over moisturizer for all the time. But for really dry skin, I loved it used sparingly. And unlike most everyone it seems, I liked the smell.

Loved the product, not the smell

I LOVED the way this cream made my skin feel. As soon as i put it on I could instantly feel and see my skin looking tighter! The smell was not so great, but I still give this 5 stars because it worked so well!

This product is the best!
Purchased

I have used 8 hour cream forever! I used to work the Elizabeth Arden counter back in the 70s and that's when I was first introduced to 8 hour cream. This product is good for anything and everything from first aid to softening skin to lip balm etc. The fragrance has improved since the 70s but the product remains invincible! Nothing comes close, I tried Mary Kay's extra emollient cream but nothing comes close to Elizabeth Arden's most famous 8 hour cream! I wish they made it in super large sizes!

Yuck!

I didn't like this 8 hour cream at all. It was super thick, and left my face sticky. It also had a funky smell. I only used it once, and I felt my hair getting stuck to my face throughout the day. YUCK!
