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.

I wondered if this would make a big difference since it was eight hour...but this made my skin so soft!

hated this cream
Sampled

I guess maybe this is for very severely chapped/dry hands, maybe mine weren't bad enough to use it...but I hated it. It smelled awful, it was a goopy brown color, and it was way too greasy. Tried to put a small amount on my knuckles because they get very dry and cracked in the winter time, but ended up washing it off my hands after less than five minutes. Yuck!

nothing ales my skin like this

I have the DRYEST skin and this is the only thing I've found that actually competes AND smells decent. My skin looks fresh and dewy. It soaks right in your skin and I put my make up on right after effortlessly.

Lanolin? Mineral oil?

Not my favorite ingredients for a skin cream. Typically avoid these items in skin creams in favor of botanicals. This formulation needs to be modernized. So many new breakthroughs in skin care formulations.

The Best Tool Against Winter Weather

My skin gets dry everywhere during the winter, and the 8 Hour Cream is the best thing I've found to combat it. It's slightly thicker than Vaseline, and has a lovely fragrance. I put it on my lips at night and they are soft by the next morning. Unlike a lot of other chapsticks and balms, Arden's cream does not come off easily, even after drinking from a cup. I also dab it on my cuticles, and slather it on my elbows and feet to make them soft again. Totally worth it!

Decent Product, Poor Smell
Purchased

I ordered this product at the beginning of winter in hopes that it would help my dry skin. While I find it a little too thick for use on my bare skin, it does work wonderfully. I also have found that it is a great lip balm. My biggest problem with this product is that it smells an awful lot like band aids. That said, it's still an excellent lip balm and it even provides a great, lasting shine. My plan is to finish out this container, which I would imagine will last me a long time considering I only use little bits at a time but I'm not sure if I'd buy it again. I hate kissing my husband knowing I taste like a nurses office.

Absolutely wonderful!

I just discovered this cult product recently and I love it! I use it on my cuticles and lips. During this winter season my nose was severely dry and sore from a cold and this hydrated and healed that problem!

great for superdry lips and scrapes

I didn't love this product at first but I grew to love it. Now I use a couple times a week on my lips and on any cuts/bruises, as they heal.

Can't live without it.

Have been using this product for at least the last 10 years. Mostly on my lips at night, but it is great to use for very dry hands, and other areas. Especially in the dry Winter.
