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.

Nasty!

Basically Vaseline with a nasty smell. For your car -- or as EA used it, your horse -- not your skin.

Have long been a fan!

I have been through a couple of tubes of this... used to keep it on my nightstand and put it on my lips before going to sleep. Will definitely purchase again. Taste takes a little getting used to but it is some really good stuff.

Ultra Dry Skin Finally Meets It's Match
Sampled

I have the most insanely dry skin ever. Really. So dry that every winter is a series of chapping and flaking and cracked fingertips that hurt like you cannot believe. So when I say "This stuff works", you can believe it really, truly works.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is the first product I have ever used that not only moisturizes my red, sore, cracked hands, it even keeps them moisturized all day so healing can finally happen. I have tried a bazillion different products, from expensive department store brands to cheap drug store ones. And none of them comes even close to the healing, moisturizing ability of this cream for my hands. It also worked beautifully on chapped lips, dry cheeks, and even eczema skin patches.

Yeah, it smells a little funky. But the scent grows on you after awhile, and I don't care if it is an odd odor since my fingertips and cuticles are no longer cracked for the first time since...I can't remember when. :)

I used this primarly on my chapped lips. It worked great. It soothed them and healed them very quickly. I also used a little on my heels which are very dry. It made them smooth.

This is a great product! I have such dry skin, cuticles, hands, and feet and after using this sample prodect I felt like it did what it said it would. 8 hours of protection and moisture. Yes the smell is not fruity or flowery but I take doing the job intended for over scent any day.

works great

warning: it's sticky, not exactly for daytime use on hands.
It works great, smells a little, but the lanolin was great at helping my hands after gardening.

Both my husband detested the smell on the first sample. We threw out the rest.

Magic!
Sampled

I love this stuff! I put a small dab on a chronic dry spot on my elbow, and it completely healed it overnight. It has done the same to dry areas of my feet. It works wonderfully on dry cuticles and chapped lips. I'm ordering it now because I'm sure there are dozens of other ways I could use it. Also, I've barely made a dent in the sample. You only need a very small dab, so I know the tube will probably last for years!
