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.

intense protectant!

When I saw this in my Birch Box, I immediately thought of my very dry cracked heels. They are the worst in the summer and are so embarrassing! I got two samples in my box and took them to action. I put the product on my heels, than threw on some socks and hoped that magic would happen. It did! When I took the socks off, my heels felt and looked SO much better. I was so impressed. I would love to buy this full size product soon for beautiful feet year around!

i like it ok

i actually have a larger sample of this from something i bought at elizabeth arden and it has lasted forever on my nighstand as my nightly hand cream. the smell is a bit bizarre as is the fact that it is sort of greasy. i wouldn't even dream of using it at any time other than at night but it is ok for a nightime treamtnet

NOT a moisturizer for this girl!

I am cracking up at all the reviews regarding this product as a moisturizer. It is WAY too oily to be put on your face- period! I use this for my lips and for minor scrapes. I find this stuff to heal my ear piercings after wearing irritating earrings much faster than neosporin or products of the like. And of course my lips are baby soft after a night of having this on my lips.

Soo oily!

I tried the sample version of this, and maybe mine had just gone bad or something, but it was super oily and gross, like the consistency of olive oil. It rubbed off on everything, and was really just a mess

Weird Color, not that moisturizing!
Purchased

turned my skin a weird orange tint and was not that moisturizing. Think it may have actually made my elbows dry out faster than usual.

A solid staple.

8 Hour Cream was my go-to nighttime lip balm for YEARS. Simply put - it just works. I'd wake up with lips that felt smooth, soft, and healed (my lips tend to peel a lot during the day, annoyingly). Even the smell didn't bother me. BUT. I do have to admit. After ignoring this stuff for a while and then going back to it, the smell suddenly IS a bit much for me. Luckily, they make a fragrance free version, which is pretty much genius. But regardless of the scent you try, it's pretty easy to see why this is such a constant staple in so many makeup artists' kits.

OVER PRICED
Purchased

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is a nice, and thick ointment. It does a good job returning moisture to dry hands and feet .It has a medicinal odor though, so for the money i will stick with Vaseline petroleum jelly.

Saved my skin!
Purchased

I have not only extremely dry, older skin, but eczema as well and have always had difficulty keeping it moisturized. My skin never felt fresh before, but rather lizard-like.
Now after using E.Arden's Cream several times a week I can feel and see my skin's suppleness returning.

Like it

I actually loved this product. I don't think it's meant to be an all-over moisturizer for all the time. But for really dry skin, I loved it used sparingly. And unlike most everyone it seems, I liked the smell.
