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.

It's ok

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?

Elizabeth Arden Cream

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
Sampled

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
