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.

Can't live without it.

Have been using this product for at least the last 10 years. Mostly on my lips at night, but it is great to use for very dry hands, and other areas. Especially in the dry Winter.

Amazing Product

This product is insanely versatile and smells as good as it is effective. I use it on chapped skin, on chapped lips overnight, or a tiny amount on my cheekbones to give a great dewy look. With products like this that have been around forever, products that your grandmother would have used, you know that if they're still around - they live up to their hype.

A True Classic
Sampled

This skin protectant is a tried and true thing. I actually love the scents that Elizabeth Arden puts out, this cream included. Given our harsh, New England winters, I love this as a balm for my lips and wind-burned face. It's also good for cuticles and heels. Very multi-purpose. I'm a fan!

A beauty classic

My mom always had this with her. She uses it on cuts and burns and sunburned areas. However, she never used it as a moisturizer. Seriously, though, this is pretty thick and extremely hydrating and kinda greasy, which would most likely make your face break out if you use it as a facial moisturizer. My lips have been extremely chapped the past few days, so I thought I should put some of the product on my lips to rehydrate them overnight. It unfortunately didn't work as well as usual, and so that's why I took off a star. My lips are still really chapped despite repeated applications... Other than that, this is a great product. My only other note is that there are many similar products for less money that work about the same in my opinion.

Great product
Purchased

It's a great product. It does moisturize and everything is says it will do. My only problem is I bought the product thinking it would be a cream..like it said, but it actually is more of a Vaseline than a lotion or cream so it's oily. I use it at night rather than during the day because it is oily and gets everywhere if you aren't cautious.

Totally get why people rave about this stuff...
Purchased

I ALWAYS have a hard time with chapped lips...no matter HOW much serums, etc. I put on! BUT with this, seriously, over night, they were smoothed and ready for lipstick. The smell on this stuff is kinda strong, not super pleasant BUT considering its been a beauty staple for 70+ years, I can get over that! I've also used it on my cuticles, and hands. I'm a fan!

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.
