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.

Still the same product style. Reminds me of my grandmother still. And a sample I could get at the mall. BirchBox you could have done better on this one.

A healing. classic balm!!
Sampled

While I would not say this is a facial cream, it is a healing, multipurpose balm. I have used it since my Grandma had me smooth it on my lips, heals and cuticles at age 8!!!

Hydrating
Sampled

This product definitely works as advertised. I had very dry and cracked lips due to the weather. I applied this on my lips and it felt very hydrating and soothing. This product is very similar to Vaseline in the texture and even the smell.

Alright

This does hydrate dry skin without a doubt; however, I did not see a noticeable difference between this product and aquaphor from the drug store.

I loved this because it was super hydrating for my skin! I could also use it so many different fields it was really fun to use it in a different way every time.

Good for the cold, windy days. Thick and coating for the skin.
Sampled

I was slightly nervous about trying this one, as I have sensitive, red, splotchy prone skin. :(

But-- The day I tried it was super cold and windy. I figured it would be a good time to give this -relatively thick - moisturizer (protectant?) a try. No regrets so far!

It looks very orange when you squeeze it out of the tube, which scared me at first so I rubbed it on the back of my hand. It doesn't stay the bright orange it appears though, and rubs in with a little bit of work. It is very thick, and doesn't necessarily spread very well, so I only used about a dime size or less on my whole face. Itty bit goes a long way! It felt great on my face and I liked the intriguing citrus/woody smell of the product. Totally unique. I like products like Aquaphor in the winter months, as I get very dry skin. So this coated and eventually absorbed into my skin so that I could basically be out all day in the cold without worrying much about getting gross dry patches. It leaves your skin a bit shiny, but does not so far appear to be clogging or detrimental to my sensitive skin. Hurray!

I think I'll be using this sample up. Especially on days where I am going out in the cold hiking or running.
