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.

Good balm, terrible smell

This balm was great for very dry areas such as elbows and calloused hands. It smells awful and is rather messy, but I found it to be very hydrating and effective.

Another great multi-tasker!
Purchased

This product almost instantly smooths chapped or rough skin. I also use it as a lip balm, cuticle oil, eyebrow groomer, and have even used a dab on dry hair ends and fly-aways. Although I use it daily, in a month I've only made a small dent in the tube. This stuff is so concentrated that a "little dab 'll do ya".

Good product

I too agree with other reviewers, it is thick and I could not use it as a daily moisturizer. I do use it at bed time and it works wonders on dry lips, elbows, heels, hands, etc. I do not particularly care for the smell, but it does not bother me to where I won't use it.

Skin Protectent

I wear Elizabeth Arden face makeup and love it. This cream was nice. Was a bit heavy, but use it on my elbows and heels. Don't like it on face as I like lighter cream on the face and throat area.

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.
