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.

This does work well, Iused it on my dry winter heels and cuticles. It helped in both areas. It is good to have on hand, but I do think there are other products that do the same.

So ~ So

I really liked the cream for my cuticles - it was great for that actually. The part I really disliked is the smell!!!! Come on EA you normally make an awesome product and I ADORE your Red Door Day Spa's but the mark was missed with the smell of this product. If there had been a more appealing smell I would have given it 5 stars.

Foil packet

I hate foil packs! It forces you to use it all at one :( The product inside is fine...I will be saving the second one for a vacation.....

Can make this YOURSELF!!

I would never spend money on this product. The first ingredients are petroleum, mineral oil and lanolin. Lanolin does not have a pleasant smell AT ALL but by itself its a great moisturizer. If you wanna save money, but some vaseline, baby oil and lanolin, mix it up and add your favorite essential oil. Seriously...people pay actually money for this stuff?

odd smell...strange consistency
Sampled

although i could totally see the moisturizing properties of this product and i think as far as a multi-tasker it is pretty great, the smell reminded me of old women and the consistency was just too thick and greasy.

Disappointing
Sampled

I was excited to try this product and was totally disappointed. It smells terrible and is incredibly thick, sticky and greasy. I ended up throwing the sample away.

Not for Me
Sampled

I have excema/sensitive skin and this product did not provide a protective or moisturizing barrier. Instead it left a filmy and greasy finish. I was very disappointed with the results.

Good Product, but not fan of the scent
Sampled

It's actually a pretty good product... not a fan of the scent though. However, I find it's pretty useful to have around during winter times, especially since I get really dry knuckles and cuticles. I apply the cream and then put on gloves before going to bed so that the greasiness and the smell don't bother me as much.

Too Goopy
Sampled

I agree with the previous reviewers; this product is way too thick and goopy to be used on a daily basis, and the smell isn't attractive.

Nice!
Sampled

I like this product and it can be used for a number of different things like dry lips, dry skin, etc. I have the Mary Kay version, which is called Extra Emollient Night Cream, I believe. It is very similar.
