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.

My Grandma always had some of this hand cream hanging around at her house when I was growing up. I can't handle the smell of this stuff, but it's nice to have in the cold winter months if you can.

Nice
Sampled

This is a nice cream by I didn't see or feel much of a difference between the products I already use. I do use a competitor brand so I would say this is probably just as good but the full size is more expensive than what I use now.

I have used this cream time and time
Again. It was a nice surprise to find it in my birch box. Great for dry chapped lips, skin and cuticles

The ingredient list on this product is terrible - and not cheap. There are plenty of better products out on the market for a lot less.

It's okay

I wasn't really sure what I wanted to use it for, so I used it as a moisturizer for my lips and the taste is terrible.

I love this stuff! It not only helps with chapped skin, it also looks great as a lip gloss! I have only used it on my lips, and am definitely happy with the results. Perfect product for cold weather skin issues!

Pleasant surprise!

I actually threw this tube in my makeup bag without trying it first, in case I needed it for on-the-go use. I used it one morning because it was all I had and I was very happily surprised! I'm a dedicated Cetaphil user, but I loved how this made my skin feel so much, that I am probably going to purchase it.

Decent enough
Sampled

This product came in such a small sample it was hard to really get use out of it. However it's really nice for dry patches on skin and it feels very soft when applying - it's more like an oil based moisturizer. But the smell! Yikes! It has the most bizarre smell of apricot and licorice. It's so strong I really didn't like using it near my face.
