Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

The sky’s the limit. Apply a generous amount onto skin to combat dryness, sunburn, or redness anytime and anywhere. Or dab a small amount onto brows to keep unruly hairs in line; smooth onto lips, cheekbones, and lids for a glossy, fresh-off-the-runway look; massage into dry cuticles and rough heels; or use as a post-shave treatment.

This is one of my absolute favorite products in the whole world. I put it on every night and it really prevents hang nails and makes my hands feel so nice in the morning. Birchbox should offer the corresponding 8 hour lip treatment which is equally as amazing.

A True Classic

This skin protectant is a tried and true thing. I actually love the scents that Elizabeth Arden puts out, this cream included. Given our harsh, New England winters, I love this as a balm for my lips and wind-burned face. It's also good for cuticles and heels. Very multi-purpose. I'm a fan!

I accidentally put my review for this amazing cream under the hand cream! It should have been left here! Exceptional stuff! Great for lips, hands, elbows ... Wherever dry skin is, this stuff will conquer!

A beauty classic

My mom always had this with her. She uses it on cuts and burns and sunburned areas. However, she never used it as a moisturizer. Seriously, though, this is pretty thick and extremely hydrating and kinda greasy, which would most likely make your face break out if you use it as a facial moisturizer. My lips have been extremely chapped the past few days, so I thought I should put some of the product on my lips to rehydrate them overnight. It unfortunately didn't work as well as usual, and so that's why I took off a star. My lips are still really chapped despite repeated applications... Other than that, this is a great product. My only other note is that there are many similar products for less money that work about the same in my opinion.
