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.
This wasn't a product I'll be purchasing. Even if it is a great dry-skin treatment and can be used in a bunch of different ways, it has a strong, off-putting scent and a very greasy texture. I didn't realize that when I opened my sample and squeezed a good sized amount into my hands, and then regretted that I'd done so. The package needs better instructions that cautions users to try only a small portion.2
The smell grossed me out. I did not like the texture at all and would never put something like that on my body.1
I've recently been turned on to using oils such as aragan oil for my nightly and daily moisturizer so I was excited to try this. However, I was very disappointed with this. It was way to thick and had a really odd smell. I kept rechecking the packaging to make sure it was actually supposed to be a facial cream and not a foot or maybe body cream. But again the thickness was only half the problem, the smell is not great. Won't be using this again.1
I was not sure what this was for, and I thought it smelled strange. However, I soon found a number of uses for it! I used it to smooth down my brows, rubbed it on the dry skin on my cheeks and lips, and rubbed it into my elbows, knees, and dry cuticles. Turns out a nice fancy goop like this can have many uses.3
This stuff was smelly, yucky, greasy and gross.
This product may have worked well for my great-grandma, but it is not for me.
I thought I would never get it washed off!!! Ewwwww!!
This smells a little strange and feels like a thick vasoline with a bit of rose colored tint. But once you get past the smell and consistency it absorbs into the skin and leaves it looking dewy and moist. Can't beat that.5
There's a reason this cream has been around forever--it really works as a "go to" moisturizer with endless uses, from chapped lips to dry, ragged cuticles. Hands a mess? Lather on the Eight Hour Cream and sleep in a pair of cotton gloves. Ditto for feet with dry, rough heels. No, it's not the latest trend, but "tried and true" earns that reputation for a reason.5
this cream is great and i love that it has a protection element5
Sorry to say but this was about the worst thing I've ever put on my face. Greasy & stinky...reminded me of tar! Couldn't wait to wash it off. Samples went in the trash.1
I have used the 8-Hour cream several times over the years. It is great for dry hands and dry lips. If you have dry skin, you can probably use it on your face, but my skin is a little too oily for that. I had hoped it would have been good for my very dry cuticles, but it has not helped, so I am still in search for a product for those. Also, the smell is a little medicinal but doesn't bother me.4
