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.

Effective, but not great
Sampled

It works--my skin is really soft--but it has a really string smell and it's goopy and sticky. Not for me.

Ointment, not cream
Sampled

I was completely disappointed when I opened his product. I expected a luxurious cream and instead I got a goopy brown horrible smelling ointment. It is likely good for the reasons listed on the packaging but I can't stand the smell. I will not be purchasing this product.

Strange...
Sampled

It's a little strange to see the Elizabeth Arden name on this product...it's just so thick, smelly, and gloppy. I couldn't bring myself to try it on my face, so I put in on my feet, but then it stained the socks I was wearing orange. Not for me.

Had a mediciny smell, but I work with water all day, so I tried the lotion with cotton gloves and it relieved dryness and itchy feeling.

Elizabeth Arden

The smell was too strong, and smelled like medicine. I did leave it on overnight and did not see any significant effects than if I had just used a good moisturizer. This product is not for me.

Scented vaseline
Sampled

I had high hopes for this. At 28 I have the hands of a much older (and wiser!) woman. I've had dry skin my entire life. This is a strongly scented vaseline type of product. It moisturized the top layer of my skin (and left it sort of greasy) but I didn't feel like it got in deep.

Oolala!
Sampled

Very nice cream. I love Elizabeth Arden's quality and their stuff is always top of the line. This cream is no different and it does not disappoint. I used the cream at night before I went to bed. It made my face feel really silky smooth and moisturized in the morning. I didnt wake up with dry skin. Adding to my arsenal.

Salve
Sampled

Eager to try a new product that I was completely unfamiliar with, I read Eight Hour Cream and jumped in. I noticed the apricot color that the texture but still applied it to my face. It is thick, sticks and will shape your brows as promised. Not what I thought it was but I will use it as multipurpose salve.
