Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour® Cream is the legendary, award-winning skin protectant that does more than soothe sun-burned skin, rehydrate chapped lips, and heal rough elbows and calluses. It’s also the secret that makeup artists all over the world use for keeping legs, lips and eyelids shiny; eyebrows in place; and cuticles perfectly manicured. There are an infinite number of ways to use this classic cream, but here are 8 great ones:

1. SKIN SAVER – Protect skin from drying wind, central heating and air conditioning. This skincare multi-tasker soothes, restores, calms and helps relieve minor skin irritations, including roughness, redness, chapped, cracked or dry skin.

2. SHINE FACTOR – Found in top makeup artists’ kits worldwide, this all-in-one beauty tool adds shine to eyelids, cheeks, lips and legs.

3. EYE OPENER – All it takes is a dab to smooth eyebrows and create a perfectly defined arch that will stay in place all day.

4. CUTICLE CONDITIONER – Soften rough, dry cuticles to keep them smooth, supple and beautifully manicured.

5. TREAT FOR FEET – Smooth rough heels and soften soles for barefoot beauty in every season.

6. AFTER-SUN SOOTHER – With its legendary soothing and moisturizing benefits, it’s the ideal after-sun treatment to relieve minor sunburn and calm dry, irritated sun-exposed skin.

7. FLIGHT TOOL – Flying can leave skin looking and feeling dry and uncomfortable. Pack this intensive hydrator to boost skin’s in-flight moisture level wherever you go.

8. LEG WEAR – Great for an après shave or après wax treatment. This classic cream calms irritation, reduces redness and leaves legs super-smooth and silky-soft.


THE LEGEND Created in 1930 by Elizabeth Arden herself to soothe skin, Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant became an instant and overwhelming success. What made it so effective? A combination of petrolatum, a skin-soothing beta-hydroxy -- debuting in one of its first cosmetic uses -- and vitamin E. The apricot-colored balm was so beneficial to her clients that Miss Arden even used it to soothe her famous thoroughbred horses' legs. Even its name came about thanks to a remarkable performance – a loyal client used it to treat her child's skinned knee and "Eight Hour®s" later, the skin was all better.

BEAUTY TIP: "As a makeup artist, I love to use this on the runway. The eyelids, cheekbones – the lips as a gloss. It's great as a brow fixative to keep the brows in place. It's great on the elbows and cuticles; it heals, moisturizes and soothes. It reverses the dryness in the skin, especially during cold weather – it's terrific. It gives that beautiful, healthy and natural look to the skin."

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nothing special at all I bought this after reading rave reviews. I have a baby and a toddler, so I wash my hands constantly - was really hoping this would help my dry skin on my hands and cuticles. It really didn't. No difference than if I had used a cheap drugstore moisturizer. Very disappointed. On the positive side, the smell is not an issue - it's really not that strong. 11/10/2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Handy size Take-with size to moisturize and protect for hands, or lips whenever you need it. Great for summer and winter. 11/05/2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome for lips!! I just purchased a foundation at the Elizabeth Arden counter and received this gift bag with one of the items being the Eight Hour Cream. Let me tell you, this stuff is awesome for your lips, it not only hydrates your lips for hours it also plumps them. Yes, it does have a weird smell but nothing too horrible that I can't leave it on. Definitely beats getting my lip balm out 10 times a day! 10/28/2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for your feet and elbows I wouldn't be without this product! I started using it years ago for my hands and elbows. Then I started using it for the heels of my feet too. It really makes my skin soft. I use it on my feet every morning and put on a pair of cotton socks until my feet absorbs the cream. I've noticed a huge difference. 10/04/2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great All-Purpose Moisturizer!!! I love the Original 8 Hour Cream. I use it all year on my lips and feet and in the winter on my hands. Great product to groom brows. Also works great as a lip gloss! 07/09/2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very moisturizing, all around product! I have only been using Eight Hour Cream for a couple of days now, but I like it so far! I purchased mine on Amazon for half the price. A little goes a long way. I apply it to my entire face, lips, and hands every night. It doesn't smell as bad as everyone says it does. It does have an odd smell though, but it's just something you need to get use to. The texture of the cream is kind of like Vaseline, and it has a orange peachy color to it. It does soak into your skin pretty well but it also leaves a greasy after feel. In the morning I use it to brighten my eyes a little if I am not wearing mascara, I apply the cream to my eyelashes after curling them and it defines each lash a little more. I think this stuff is great! Not for $20 though, so I would try to find it some where else for half the price. Great product! 06/25/2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Skin burns In the "old days", the eight hour cream was a known, fantastic remedy for burns: cooking, sun.........it made the burn go away and not leave a scar. I am undergoing severe radiation therapy for cancer and purchased this eight hour cream on the off chance that it will still heal the burns on my legs. I've just begun faithfully rubbing the Eight Hour cream on to my leg every night and here's hoping that the cream is successful and prevents the burns I'm expecting. 05/10/2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing this is the only cream that actually protects and soothes my dried hands. in addition, it provides lasting moisturizing. my hands feel like silk. thank you EA! 03/29/2014
