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.

Awful

Smelled awful and was sticky. I tried some on my face and immediately washed it off- did not feel good. Glad I had a sample because I would be very disappointed if I actually bought this.

Awful smell

I would have loved to have been able to try this cream for all the different purposes mentioned, however, I simply could not STAND the smell of it! As soon as I moisturized with it, I had to wash it off. Even after that, the smell lingered. Wish I could report on effectiveness, but just not possible for me.

i don't get it

a cult product? for years, i've heard about it's magical powers. and i'm sure it works wonders.
you will love it - IF - you can get past the smell of gasoline. if you're into that sort of thing, it's awesome. i prefer aquaphor, it's got no aroma, does the trick, and costs 1/3 of the price.
nostalgia, you didn't sell me this time.

Not a Favorite

I was not happy about receiving this product -- lanolin is an outdated ingredient, and there are tons of better moisturizers out there with much more advanced formulations..

It works

This product works, but I'm not fond of the scent, which is why I only gave it 3 stars. I does heal dry/chapped skin, so if you're o.k. with the scent, go for it.

Useful
Purchased

I bought this because it was a "must have" and the list of uses seemed endless. Multi-functional products are always a winner. As soon as I opened it and put a dab of the orange goop on my hand, I had a total flashback... Sitting at my mom's dressing table and her putting this on everything. I hated that stuff! Now, I give it 3 stars. Use it sparingly or you won't like it! It does everything the review said, just don't plan on falling in love with it.

Good product

Made my face and lips feel smooth and soft, not greasy. Really liked the scent. Will recommend to friends and family.

Really Interesting - and Effective - Product

Wow, what a surprise when I pricked a little hole in my sample packet and squeezed out the product! I expected a rich white cream; instead it's a lanolin-based ointment of sorts. All I know is, I put it on my face this morning and my skin has NEVER felt like this before: moist, plump, protected, all buttered up. This definitely isn't to wear to the office or out on a date, but I can totally see using this as a rich overnight treatment, out for a day of skiing or just walking in the cold weather, or when your skin is dry and peeling. I think I'm gonna buy it! Very interesting product.

Sticky

While this certainly accomplishes its task of moisturizing and protecting, I found it to sticky for my liking. It's like an ointment.

Love!!!

I love this product. I have combination skin but little dry patches at the jaw line. I use this cream and it helps with the dryness. I recommend this product.
