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.

but i felt like it was too sticky. It could have been the packing but i felt like it made my skin too oily right after i used it. a few hours later i have noticed that my skin is a lot softer but its not something you can use and then put on clothes.

Repackaged A&D ointment

This product smells, looks and works exactly like A&D ointment. I do not recommend it. Also, the product labeling is very misleading. I was under the impression it was a face and body moisturizer. It is completely oily and there is no way this stuff would be safe to smear all over your face. Maybe for very dried and chapped skin. But the label needs to make that clear. Regardless, it’s A&D ointment that you could purchase at a fraction of the cost in a drug store.

REALLY GREAT
Sampled

This product is really great if you have super dry, chapped-looking skin. Honestly first impressions I was completely against it. It smelled awful, was sticky, looked like goo, had a weird color to it, and was really thick. I ABSOLUTELY HATED IT! But then I told myself I need to give a full review of this so its fair. Well, I woke up the next morning and my legs were beautiful! IT LOOKED LIKE I HAD JUST PUT ON LOTION BUT IT WASNT ALL AWKWARDLY STICKY! And then when I got home it was still GORGEOUS!!! Long story short: I just finished repurchasing this so that should tell you how amazing of a product this is since I just said all of the things I didnt like about it

Hate It

I absolutely hated this product. The scent is awful and it's too greasy for me.

Elizabeth Arden

I thought this moisturizer worked well, but the Elizabeth Arden brand is not that exciting to me. I'd rather try something new, with a bit of a younger image. I liked the feel of this product but didn't enjoy the scent. I wouldn't buy the full-size version based on my sample experience.

Works well

I used this cream on my sore red nose, due to a cold. I applied at bedtime and woke up with a much improved nose...the redness and dryness were gone.

Offensive fragrance & too greasy/waxy
Sampled

I applied a small dab of this product to the dry areas on my face and immediately threw the rest of the sample away. The fragrance is offensive and smells like motor oil. The feel is sticky, waxy, and greasy; MUCH too heavy for the face. If the smell was more palatable, perhaps this would be appealing for rough/cracking feet & elbows. I don't see how this is any more effective than Vaseline.

At first I was confused a bit about the packaging. I would have preferred packaging in a small bottle or in a pot. I would only use the product on my lips and like it for this, but do not think I would purchase for my hands. It felt synthetic and sticky.
