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.

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.

Wonderful Workhorse

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.

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.

good for lots of things but not everything

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.

I didn't really feel this did anything for my skin. I have sensitive dry skin and have to use a specific moisturizer. This didn't irritate my skin but also did not help me at all.

I wasn't sure what to do with this but I used it on my elbows which are really dry and it totally grossed me out - from the smell to the texture of it. I would never use it again.

So smelly

This product does seem effective on really chapped/dry skin or lips (not for every day moisturizing), however, the smell is AWFUL.
