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 love this product! A little goes a long way and there are so many ways to use it. I use it daily on my lips and I like to add whatever product is left to my cuticles. It's too gooey to use as a normal moisturizer so I'll apply it to areas that need some extra moisture before going to sleep. I also use it for "no makeup" days, I'll put a tiny bit on my eyelids, above my cheekbones and on my lips. If I want a dewy look I'll add a very small amount to a cream blush and use it on my cheeks, lips and sometimes as an eyeshadow, it looks very natural and pretty, like you just went running through a field (minus the running and the allergies).5
I first tried the product on my lips, which was way too sticky and thick for that purpose. It's also too sticky as a moisturizer (even on hands). However, it does work well on cuticles as well as heels.3
This product is a bit greasy for daytime wear, but is perfect for hydrating durning the evening! It smells a lot better than most products of it's kind. Perfect for the winter, dry season!3
This is nice and moisturizing, but seems a little greasy to use anywhere other than your lips. The smell is also not too appealing. Overall nice to use as an overnight lip product.4
I use this for everything since my best friend's maleup artist for her wedding "brought it back". Lips, chaffing - i love it.5
I have been buying this cream for years now and I use it in a variety of ways:
- heavy night eye cream (skin plumper)
-cuts and razor burns
- mix it it with light oil-free moisturizer to make heavy duty overnight moisturizer cream
- lip balm
I use 8 hour cream for many reasons, as an around the eye moisturizer, lip balm, spot treatment for flaky skin, cuticles, fly away hairs. Occasionally, when my skin is extra dry, I will use it as an intense moisturizing treatment applying to my entire face. In a pinch, it can also double as an eye makeup remover and a hand cream. It does have a greasy, vaseline like texture BUT it does not cause breakouts (I break out easily). I always have a tube on hand.4
I have been using this for years and a little bit goes a long way. I primarily use it for my lips, but it is great for little dry spots on my face, or for keeping my cuticles in good shape. The smell is very nice, and I like the bit of sheer orange color on my lips. My daughter loves it, too.5
This product works well as a sking protectant from sun/wind, great for days spent outdoors.4
When first opened, the smell is not inviting. When first used, it seems greasy. However, I stuck with it and found the smell dissipates and that over time works fairly well. It's no miracle, but skin does show improvement.5
