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.

Nice for chapped lips
Purchased

This is nice and moisturizing, but seems a little greasy to use anywhere other than your lips. The smell is also not too appealing. Overall nice to use as an overnight lip product.

A classic for good reason
Purchased

I use 8 hour cream for many reasons, as an around the eye moisturizer, lip balm, spot treatment for flaky skin, cuticles, fly away hairs. Occasionally, when my skin is extra dry, I will use it as an intense moisturizing treatment applying to my entire face. In a pinch, it can also double as an eye makeup remover and a hand cream. It does have a greasy, vaseline like texture BUT it does not cause breakouts (I break out easily). I always have a tube on hand.

I love this stuff!

I've been using this for years! It's become a beauty staple of mine that I can't live without! I put it on my lips at night and wake to a perfectly soft and moisturized pout! I also use it on my dry feet and ankles, as well as a few beauty tricks. This stuff really is quite versatile!

intense protectant!

When I saw this in my Birch Box, I immediately thought of my very dry cracked heels. They are the worst in the summer and are so embarrassing! I got two samples in my box and took them to action. I put the product on my heels, than threw on some socks and hoped that magic would happen. It did! When I took the socks off, my heels felt and looked SO much better. I was so impressed. I would love to buy this full size product soon for beautiful feet year around!

i like it ok

i actually have a larger sample of this from something i bought at elizabeth arden and it has lasted forever on my nighstand as my nightly hand cream. the smell is a bit bizarre as is the fact that it is sort of greasy. i wouldn't even dream of using it at any time other than at night but it is ok for a nightime treamtnet

NOT a moisturizer for this girl!

I am cracking up at all the reviews regarding this product as a moisturizer. It is WAY too oily to be put on your face- period! I use this for my lips and for minor scrapes. I find this stuff to heal my ear piercings after wearing irritating earrings much faster than neosporin or products of the like. And of course my lips are baby soft after a night of having this on my lips.

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.

So thick and moisturizing

This stuff is great for everything! Is heals anything that is super chapped or dry. It is very thick so a little goes a long way!
