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.

ONLY FOR NIGHT TIME USE

Although the cream is good for cracked and dry skin, I would only use this at bed time. The smell is like sulfur and I work in an office and would not want to offend anyone.

Fabulous product
Purchased

I suffered from extremely dry lips this winter (as well as other spotty areas of my skin ... mild ezcema, to be specific). This was the ONLY product that made my lips soft again (I went for months unable to wear lipstick & using lip balm constantly). The only sticking point is it really isn't a traditional cream, rather it is an ointment. I agree with other reviews that you can't really rub it all over your body very well, rather use it for "spot" treatments. And I actually like the smell which is hard to characterize, but can probably be best described as "medicinal."

Great all around cream
Purchased

This is a great ointment for winter. I use it on my cracking/dry skin. Just rub a small amount into my knuckles works great. Scent is nice. Great tube just to have around for whatever, lips/hands/feet.

Don't bother...

I have VERY dry hands and I'm always interested in finding a good hand lotion that soothes but is not greasy. This product had a horrible smell and it was so greasy and it didn't work at all. I stopped using my current hand cream to try this one but this cream left me with dry cracked hands. So, now I'm back to my old cream.

excellant

This 8 hr skin protectant is a little to heavy duty on my face but i use it on my feet and dry spots on foot and the front of my lower legs where the skin is so thin and dry. It works very good

Not a huge fan

It made my hands and feet feel really soft, but the smell is way too potent. If an unscented version existed, I would definitely buy it. But until then, I won't be purchasing.

Really heavy, but super duty for dry skin.

At first I thought it was too heavy and greasy for normal use, but on your feet or elbows it's very soothing.

Amazing Product!
Purchased

I struggle with dry skin and chapped lips. Most products, especially lip products, tend to exacerbate the problem and leave me peeling.Which brings me to why I am so excited to be introduced to this product! I felt a difference in my skin almost instantly; like it was "drinking" this salve. My lips did not react negatively to this product which is wonderful considering how sensitive they are. It does have a medicinal scent that I can imagine some might find offensive however it does not really bother me personally. This is a extremely versatile product that I recommend to anyone who needs some hydration in thier life.

Quick fix, not long last

I tried this on my hands to attempt to combat dryness, it takes a lot to rub in and feels quite greasy initially. That goes away as it soaks in, but so does the healing effect. Felt dry again within a few minutes.

Really Thick!

This product is so rich and thick. The smell reminded me of a spa....it was very refreshing. I noticed a nice feel on my elbows and feet which is where I used this product.
