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.

strong scented salve for cuticles
Sampled

It has a thick, gel/salve consistency. Because of the scent (which is not unpleasant, but strong) I can't use it anywhere near my face. I used it on my cuticles for a couple of days, but I think it's comparable to the rosebud perfume co salve and I'd rather use that because it's less sticky.

A little goes a long way
Sampled

I would never use this all over my face. I would only use this for very dry patches, lips, cuticles, and any extremely dry area of skin. I doubt I would buy a huge bottle of this but I love it on my lips.

A little too greasy
Sampled

I liked this multi purpose balm for my dry skin but I found it to be a little too greasy and not thick enough. Also the main ingredient is petroleum jelly which I tend to avoid in my beauty products.

Good effort, odd scent
Sampled

I appreciated the luxurious feel of the product but the scent was a bit medicinal and was a negative.

So-so
Sampled

This was a decent moisturizer, but it didn't wow me in any way, so I would not purchase the full size.

Overpriced Aquafor
Sampled

After using this sample, I feel like you can save a few dollars by skipping on this product and buying any of the several petroleum-based creams from Vaseline or aquafor at the drugstore.

Works for lips

I tried this mostly for dry lips and it worked well. I didn't love the smell but the consistency was good.
