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.

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.

SALVE is great
Sampled

Love this salve. The name is very misleading as it is not a cream; it is a SALVE, but a great salve. I used on my cuticles, lips and a small dry patch on my cheek. And a little goes a long way. Loved so much that I couldn't wait for Birchbox to get the product back in stock that I went and purchased at a department store. This is a great product for year around patchy dryness- your heels in the Summer, dry patches in the Winter, and lips and cuticles year round. This is a keeper.

not for me
Sampled

I just didn't like this product at all. It is very thick,sticky and oily & to top it off - the smell is terrible. The smell is so awful, that I couldn't use it. I tried it on my legs that were dry & peeling. It was moisturizing but the smell was so bad, I washed it of.

not that impressed
Sampled

I know this product has been around for quite some time however I really was not blown away by it at all. It seemed greasy and mostly comprised of mineral oil-yuck. It would be good for chapped bry lips or feet but I would not want to put it on my face or skill anywhere else. Thick and it had a mineral oil smell. :(

eight hour creme
Sampled

It smelled horrible. I used it on my eyeborws, and it worked very well. It was a little too thick for my skin. It was ok.

like glue
Sampled

This product feels and smells terrible. The consistency reminds me of a thick glue or paste and the smell is...just horrendous. I have honestly never encountered a beauty product that smells this bad. I almost wonder whether there was something wrong with my sample.

wonderful for super dry patches
Sampled

This cream is more like an ointment so I used it sparingly on some dry patches and it worked beautifully - I've been rubbing into my cuticles and they have stopped peeling, too.
This is a product I would use sparingly all through the winter

interesting product
Sampled

Well, it definitely smells...unique. It's way too thick and sticky to use as an all-over moisturizer, but seems to work well for really dry patches. Someone below mentioned that it cleared up their KP - I will try it for that and if it works, I'll definitely be purchasing!

This is not a cream...
Sampled

This was thick and greasy. It smelled bad. I put some on my face and left it for about 45 seconds before washing it off. It made my skin feel dirty. I would not recommend this to anyone!
