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.

Weird goopy stuff
Sampled

I saw this in the March box and went to try it the next day, but was completely disappointed with it. It is a weird, goopy gold colored substance. It smelled like gasoline and felt greasy on my face. It didn't seem to absorb at all and I regreted putting it on my skin. Definitely will not be buying.

Similar to petroleum jelly
Sampled

A bit oily of a feeling. Nice for chapped areas but probably more expensive than it should be.

not impressed
Sampled

I didn't really like this stuff. The smell is so plastic/chemically. it seems like an expensive petroleum jelly. I tried using this on chapped lips and aside from the taste/smell being bad, within a few minutes it was melting off. I tried using it on some dry patches of skin on my legs and didnt notice any improvement there either. It is way too sticky to use on my hands. Not something i would buy.

Light

I've tried different products of this brand and it did not agree with my skin. This products was light and it did not irritate my skin. I liked it and would try it again.

Odd sample
Sampled

Elizabeth Arden has always reminded me of something my grandmother would use. There is not enough of a sample to really determine how well it would work. Sticking with my dermacological.

Hand Cream
Sampled

I will say that this product, used as a hand cream, kept my skin moist throughout the whole day, which is nice since I live in the desert and constantly have to reapply other lotions. However, the scent was medicinal and overpowering.

Very Soothing
Sampled

I have a horrible time with dry hands in the winter, so the only word that came to mind when I used this product was RELIEF! I don't think I can ever go back to ordinary hand lotion. Thankfully, a little goes a long way.

if you like oil rigs
Sampled

From the package description, I thought this would be a heavy face moisturizer. It's more like a combination of thick Vaseline and motor oil mixed together. I slathered it all over my face at bedtime, then couldn't sleep because of the strong motor oil smell, and the fear I was destoying my pillows with it. It may work, but unless you plan to sleep with noseplugs and upright, it isn't worth it. Incredible how bad it smells - they should at least give a hint at that on packaging.

nice product, horrible smell
Sampled

I liked the moisterizing aspect of this product. As someone who lives ina dry climate, it felt very nice on my skin. However, I could not get past the terrible and rather strong smell. It was too powerful and overwhelming for my face. I would buy this if it wasn't for the smell.
