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 am going on vacation and I am really excited to see if it helps combat the sea water/sun burn.

works well for hand cream
Sampled

this product is probably too thick to be used on your face, but works great as a moisturizer for dry hands.

LOVE IT!
Sampled

Great product. I use it as chapstick, as a face primer, as face moisturiser, everything! This one product has replaced about 3 of my products because it has so many different uses. At first I was worried about the texture of the product and the smell but i came to love it. I dont have a problem with the smell anymore and it has done wonders for my skin. Great product and a great one to have included my Birchbox. Highly recommend it to everyone no matter your skin type!

Gross!
Sampled

This is nothing more than orange-tinted petrolatum (Vaseline) with a terrible fragrance. I thought perhaps the sample had an off-fragrance so I smelled the product in a department store and it still smelled vile.

Works well overnight
Sampled

I applied this before bed and my skin was very moisturized an soft the next morning. It's more like a salve than a cream. I wouldn't try to use it during the day because it doesn't really absorb into skin.

Fancy petroleum jelly
Sampled

This smells just like A&D ointment and petroleum jelly. Way to over-priced for what it is and the smell is horrible. I tried it as a lip balm and on my dry feet and it does moisturize but I had to wash it off because I didn't like the way I smelled.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream

Although I usually love Elizabeth Arden products, this isn't one of them. I found it to bee far too heavy and greasy.

Grandma's "Cream"
Sampled

This product reminds me of something my grandmother used to lather herself up with. My positive thought on the product is that it does last (stays on long) and does hold in the moisture. As for the negatives, it smells funny....my daughter says it smells like "salt". I don't think it should be called "cream". It is far more like an ointment. It is so thick. It is extremly difficult to spread.

Icky
Sampled

I was going to try this on my face but after opening the sample and seeing the texture, I used it on my hands, forearms, and elbows. There was enough in the sample packet to share with my roommate. It was effective but I didn't care for the gooey texture or medicinal smell. I will use the second sample packet on my feet or a sunburn. The scent and texture is too off-putting for me to purchase this product.

8 hour skin protectant- Elizabeth Arden
Sampled

Works great for chapped and dried skin; leaves a glossy look at the end. Not sure whether it can be used regularly just as any other facial moisturizer.
