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.

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!

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.

OK, glad I didn't pay for it
Sampled

This product worked ok at smoothing my brows this morning, but the smell was yuck. The cream is much thicker than I expected. I think I will stick with vaseline.

Good product, bad scent
Sampled

The product itself is very effective - I used it to help tame my eyebrows and moisturize my cuticles and it worked great - but the smell is very unpleasant!

Not Moisturizing Enough
Sampled

I have very dry skin in the colder months of the year. I put this on my hands overnight, and woke up with dry hands. Plus, the smell is ridiculously strong.

Just not for me...
Sampled

I thought this product was very heavy and much too greasy. I do have dry skin, but I could not stand the texture of this product. The smell was not very appealing either.

Eight Hour Cream
Sampled

This product worked great on moisturizing my legs that were suffering from winter skin dryness. I also used it for my daughters chapped hands and it worked great. However this product is far to greasy for me to be able to use on my face.
