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.

Thick and Greasy, unpleasant smell
Sampled

I'm not a fan of the texture or smell of this product. I used it on the dry skin under my nose and my lips after a cold I had. It didn't help at all.

Super thick, great 'cream' but not for your face
Sampled

Super thick, great 'cream' but not for your face. Not really a cream at all, way more like a jelly. Great for dry knuckles in the winter

Its not a product I needed
Sampled

but I got sick and it really came in handy. I used it on my nose and it was never chapped and flakey even after all the tissues I used!

Petroleum product with a strong smell
Sampled

The smell of this product was so off-putting that I gave it to my sister, and even she (who loves her Vaseline and Aquaphor petroleum jellies) couldn't bring herself to use it.

Liked it...mostly
Sampled

I was excited to get this in my box because i've heard so much about it on the internet. I used it as lip balm almost exclusively because i dont experience much dryness elsewhere. It was nice. I liked how thick the consistency was but it didn't blow me away. I like my vaseline lip stuff better.

OK cream. If I didn't have similar product....
Sampled

I already have something similar from another company. The one I have uses natural products which I prefer. That being said, this really worked well on some of my cracks on my fingers and chapped lips. I may see what happens over the colder winter months.

Great balm
Sampled

This is a great balm for dry areas, think aquaphor but for your face and with a nice smell! Seals in moisture. Highly recommend for those of us with oily areas but severe dry spots

Great for Chapped Skin
Sampled

This sample came in the mail at the perfect time. It's fall and naturally, I caught a pretty bad bug. I had the sniffles 24/7 and the skin around my nose and lips was getting very chapped and irritated. It didn't help that the fall weather also brought an onset of a much drier climate. I applied this cream a few times at night and it really soothed my irritated skin. Wasn't crazy about the smell (very ointment like - but then again, that's kinda what this product is). A little goes a long way to repair dry, chapped skin. It's too heavy to apply during the day (Vaseline-like texture), but it's an excellent overnight treatment.

It smelled like petroleum jelly
Sampled

I am all about etra protective care but this product is not my favorite. I think it did moisturize well but the reason I did not like it was the due to the smell. It smelled like petroleum jelly. I used it one my face and could smell it an hour later.

NICE
Sampled

Felt amazing on my face and didn't burn my eyes. I know I'm not supposed to put over my lids, but I always end up doing so - most brands burn my eyes - this didn't.
