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 product seemed to go on my lips pretty well and soaked in without getting greasy, but I'm not crazy about the smell. It has kind of a strong smell that I don't care for.

Elizabeth Arden Does The Trick
Sampled

This product is soooo perfect this time of year! My lips and knuckles get so dry in the winter and I'm so happy to have a product that can do double-duty! I really want to try it on my eyelids with eyeshadow, too, to see how that lasts! It's a little medicinal smelling but honestly I don't mind that if it can help my wintry pout!

Ehhh

I was excited to get this product but was slightly disappointed. It does not smell very pleasant. It has a slight Vaseline smell. I used on my chap lips and it seemed to help but the smell is very off putting.

Very nice
Sampled

I enjoyed this sample. It soaks in nicely and did not leave me feeling oily or greasy. I currently have an abundance of face creams so I would hold off on buying it for myself but maybe once I start to run low on my other ones I will purchase the full size of it. Nice size sample too

It's okay
Sampled

I liked this product. It really made my nails shiny. But I am afraid to put it in any of my face skin because I don't like the smell and it's super thick

I don't get it
Sampled

SO upon getting this sample I just "cream skin protectant" and automatically thought it was for your hands. I learned a life lesson while using this product: always smell things first. I applied a small amount on my hands and was alarmed at how much it looked like maple syrup. Then I smelt it-to me it smelt like burnt bacon-I despise the smell! I work with animals and have to wash my hands so much that they get so dry. I was hoping this would help but the smell lingered and I had to wash it off. As I read the card with my samples listed on it I realized it says to use it on lips, cuticles and skin such as eyelids or eyebrows. At least I was semi-right to apply it to my hands but it was to thick it didn't rub in other then the area I dabbed onto my palm. I don't really understand this product since it can be applied to so many areas yet with how awful it smells I would NEVER want to try it on my lips or how thick it is I would NEVER apply to my eyelids or eyebrows in fear it would act like wax. Overall I just despise this product. Super bummed!

Great but with a catch
Sampled

The product is moisturizing, but not great for all places. It is too oily to put on your face unless it's burnt. It is moisturizing, but didn't last for 8 hours. It wasn't as moisturizing as I expected, but is still a nice product.

Love Elizabeth Arden Products

I was really excited to see an Elizabeth Arden Product. That was until I tried it. Very disappointed. I've used Elizabeth Arden Product for years. Hopefully it was just a bad batch.

New Staple
Sampled

I'd heard about the Original Eight Hour Cream many times before but only recently had the opportunity to try it. It's now a staple in my makeup bag. I love that it has multi uses and cuts down the amount of 'essentials' in my bag. I use this on my lips before I go to bed and I wake up with soft moisturized lips.
