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.

Smells horrid! Is quite effective at softening my hands and cuticles during this brisk season, but really does smell quite bad. Looks like the pink goop that comes out of the bathtub in the Ghostbusters movie.

I loved this product! My hands are in terrible shape from washing lots and lots of bottles. I was surprised by the stickiness, but still loved the product and the results.

no thank you

The product itself felt so greasy and thick going onto my skin. I have some dry patches on my elbows I put it on, but the smell of it was terrible. I was not a fan. It did work nicely shaping and holding my eyebrows, but I wouldnt by a product just for that, especially one that smells the way this one does.

works well, but don't like smell
Sampled

This has a cream texture and orange tint. It looks almost like beeswax. Like the title said, this works wonders on my cuticles and nails. I put it on before I go to bed once a week and now they are so soft! However, the smell bothers me so much. It smells almost medicinal. I would never put it on my face for this reason, even though it probably would work well.

Not for me!

I think this product needs to come with different instructions-something about using only a small amount, and I feel like it should only be applied to certain areas of the body. I can't imagine putting this on my face, arms or legs. I was put off by the smell, it was very oily and left me feeling sticky. I ended up applying it to really dry areas (elbows, knees and tops of feet.) I'd have applied it to the bottom of my feet if I had some socks to put them in. I think I'd have been slipping around my hardwoods otherwise. I'm sure it's an effective product, may need to bring it in and not market for general use.

This is almost too greasy to use any time except before bed but it seems to have really helped with my dry skin.

This cream is awesome! It has 1000 uses and it has completely regenerated my skin. It's great for eyebrows, lips, cuticles...you name it.
It really brought my skin back to life!!!

Decent, nothing special

I used the cream on my feet and they did feel softer than usual after, but I have other products that give the same effect so I'm not sure this one is good enough to make me want to switch.

goopy but effective
Sampled

This is like a super thick petroleum jelly - it works in slowly and sits on top of the skin for a really really long time. I've used it on my cuticles, heels, and knees, and it's great at hydrating dry winter skin. The consistency and time it takes to absorb make it an inconvenient product for any time other than immediately before bed (and even with that, you have to cover up where you applied it to protect your sheets. Not a huge fan except for the most dire, dry circumstances.
