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 did not seem like a good match for me. This was a miss.

Smells nice and lasts a long time!
Sampled

This product has a nice scent that lasted all day when I used it! It felt thick and luxurious when I put it on and made my skin feel soft and moisturized all day.

detest the smell
Sampled

This cream which a friend of mine adores, smells so awful that I could not bear it. I gave it away. It might be super moisturizing but I can't wear anything on my face that smells this bad.

Weird tedture
Sampled

I like the idea of this product but it is not as moisturizing or long lasting as I had hoped and the smell is a bit off putting isn't something I would want to wear if I was going anywhere

Strong Moisturizer

This product has been great in the dry Colorado winter months. I have tried it around my nose and on my eyebrows, it's a miracle worker.

Kinda like rosebud salve
Sampled

If you have ever used a rosebud salve like the one told at bath and body works or another this is very similar if not identical! It does smell a little stronger than rosebud salve which I didn't love but it was nice for my dry skin! Kinda like Vaseline

Terrible smell, sticky texture - you're better off with Aquaphor
Sampled

I tried this product on the back of my hand first, and I immediately ran to the bathroom to wash it off. It has an overpowering fragrance that does NOT smell good to me. The texture is similar to Aquaphor - very sticky. If you use it for burns, scrapes, or damaged skin, then the texture makes sense to me but I would never call it a "cream" - it's more of an ointment. I am currently using a lot of Aquaphor to treat my skin during radiation treatments - in my opinion, you can get a much better-smelling product for much less money with Aquaphor.

It's ok
Sampled

This is super thick and a bit greasy. It definitely helped with my dry and peeling forehead; however, it made me too oily and resulted in some breakouts for me. If you don't have sensitive skin, this could work for you. I saw some reviewers say they used it on their hands. I may try it as a hand lotion (top of my hands only as it is greasy).

Not as moisturizing as I'd like
Sampled

This felt good going on but wasn't very hydrating. I need something creamier and thicker. My skin is very dry. This just wasn't anything exciting to me.
