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.
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.2
Have been using as a cuticle moisturizer. Very nice consistency and scent.4
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.2
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.5
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.2
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.2
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.5
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.1
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. :(2
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.4
