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.

I have used the eight hour cream for years, and it has always worked wonders on my dry chapped lips. During high school and college swim seasons it was perfect for super dry skin, and is a winter time staple in my beauty regime.

Smelly and Sticky
Sampled

The benefit of a softer face after eight hours did not outweigh how sticky it was and my loved one telling me my face smelled like tobacco.

STICKY AND GREASY

HATED! ABSOLUTELY HATED! I was excited to rip open the package and put it on a burn on my face and it actually made me breakout. Nasty smell and terrible texture. I hated it. It isn't even worth a penny. Nasty.

Great for cracked heels, cuticles, and red noses when sick

This is a great balm for healing skin that is stressed. I use it on cracked heels and peeling lips in the winter (it is great overnight), and year round, i use it on my cuticles. When I get sick and am blowing my nose a lot and end up with red, irritated skin on my nose, I put 8 hour on the irritated skin at night, and by morning it is soft and calm again. This is too thick for me for daily use but incredible at soothing and healing dry, irritated skin.

Great Product
Sampled

I already use this product and love it. It is thick but a little goes a long way, especially when mixed with a moisturizer. I used this product when I used to ride motorcycles with my husband. I noticed a lot of women who ride motorcycles get that weathered look and I was determined to protect my skin. I mixed it with my moisturizer and applied it to my face and neck before applying my makeup. I then mixed it with my sunscreen and used it on all exposed parts like hands, arms, legs, etc. It kept my skin from getting beaten by the wind and from the pollutants in the air. We don't ride motorcycles anymore but we spend time outdoors in our open jeep so I will continue to use this product. I would recommend it for anyone who participates in any kind of outdoor sports, especially those that involve wind. I also recommend it for the whole family to prevent hand and cheek chapping on cold windy days, and at the beach after swimming to prevent chapping on the inner thighs. This product doesn't have an aroma, which I miss and would prefer it did. It is a great product.

Don't care for the feel of this product. Very similar to other brands I have tried. Not a fan.

I've used 8 hour skin cream in the past but haven't had it in a while. So I was very happy to get some in my March Box. It's a wonderful product once you get past the smell. I plan on buying some as it's great as an overnight cream for my hands.

I'm quite fond of lanolin which is the first of the inactive ingredients listed for this product. Mineral oil is the second and since I'm not fond of using mineral oil on my skin I'm personally not a fan of the product.
