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.

Terrible smell, sticky texture - you're better off with Aquaphor
Sampled

I tried this product on the back of my hand first, and I immediately ran to the bathroom to wash it off. It has an overpowering fragrance that does NOT smell good to me. The texture is similar to Aquaphor - very sticky. If you use it for burns, scrapes, or damaged skin, then the texture makes sense to me but I would never call it a "cream" - it's more of an ointment. I am currently using a lot of Aquaphor to treat my skin during radiation treatments - in my opinion, you can get a much better-smelling product for much less money with Aquaphor.

It's ok
Sampled

This is super thick and a bit greasy. It definitely helped with my dry and peeling forehead; however, it made me too oily and resulted in some breakouts for me. If you don't have sensitive skin, this could work for you. I saw some reviewers say they used it on their hands. I may try it as a hand lotion (top of my hands only as it is greasy).

Not as moisturizing as I'd like
Sampled

This felt good going on but wasn't very hydrating. I need something creamier and thicker. My skin is very dry. This just wasn't anything exciting to me.

Who knew?

I am a big Elizabeth Arden fan but was not familiar with this product until I received the sample. This is wonderful for lips! I also use it at bed time as an eye cream. This product is going onto my short list of products I will always have.

Not for me

Description says originally developed in the 1930s? I hope the recipe has changed since then. I don't know that I would even use the rest of the sample. Smell is unpleasant. Maybe I would use it on my feet?

This cream is really effective at healing rough skin but it has a really strong odor. I recommend putting it on overnight.

My new go-to product!!!

I'd never heard of this salve before receiving it in one of the limited edition boxes I purchased. That being said, I absolutely love it!

I use it a few different ways.
1. As a lip exfoliant. I put it on my bare lips & using a toothbrush, in a circular motion, I scrub my lips for a minute or two. I leave it on for 5 minutes then wipe it off with a washcloth. My lips are so soft!
2. To soften my cuticles. After using cuticle oil, I put a little of the salve on my nail & rub it into my cuticles, I then put hand lotion on over it & leave it over night.

The salve has a bit of a rough texture so I don't know if I would use it in the place of a regular face lotion but it works great as an exfoliant or it can be rubbed into the skin before using a moisturizer.

Very rich texture
Sampled

This is very thick and intense. I put it on my hands and felt like it was to much for me. I have semi dry hands so this doesn't really apply to me. I do believe if you have severely dry skin this will help you a lot.

Sticky

I don't think this product was right for my skins chemistry. The consistency of this product was pretty sticky and left my skin worse off then it was before I used the product
