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 seemed like it would be very useful to have around because of dry skin in the winter, but it was slightly greasy and didn't seem to help much.

Just Ok

I did like how this cream stuck to my skin and had staying power...but it did have a very "band-aide" smell to it.

Great product but bad scent
Sampled

This product came at the perfect time for my winter chapped skin. I use the skin protectant several times a day on my severely cracked knuckles and have seen significant improvement. The salve is a bit greasy at first but absorbs quickly. The only downside to this product is the extremely strong smell.

Rich lotion perfect for the winter months
Sampled

My husband doesn't use lotion, and his hands get so dry during the winter that they bleed. He used my sample one time and noticed an immediate improvement. It is very oily, but I only use it on my hands, elbows and feet just before bed, and after a few minutes it absorbs just fine, leaving my skin very soft.

Surprising but good
Sampled

A little stickier and more sap-like than I'd anticipated, but its scent is nice and it seems to last at least a few hours. Different from similar products I've tried, but in a good way.

Not For Me

This was like putting vasilene mixed with honey on my face. It was so heavy I felt like I was greasing my face. On of my least favoriates.

Not for me

I didn't really like this product. That's not to say it is a bad product, it just doesn't work for me, and here's why. It's not really a cream, more like an ointment consistency. I put some on my hands which get pretty dry, and it was sort of sticky like neosporin, and it didn't smell "good", it smelled like Lanolin, which is one of the ingredients in it. I tried to wash it off after that, using soap and warm water, and my hands still smelled and felt like the cream. If you're looking for serious dry skin relief that lasts, I'm sure this would work, but it was too much for me.
