Cult classic, strong scent
Prefer the fragrance free versionI love this cream and I use it on my lips as a lip balm everyday however I prefer the fragrance free version. The fragrance on this one is a little strong for me and makes my lips tingle a little bit
Been using this for yearsI am 50 and have been using this product as a night cream for years. I love it. Yes it's thick....hence night cream use. Noticeably decreases my few wrinkles.
ClassicLove this classic product for a good base under makeup. Hydrates and smooths very nicely.
GoodReally nice cream, very thick but you only need a very small amount and as you work it into your hands they feel lovely. I love the smell, I put on morning and night and it has really helped
Great hand creamThia hand cream is amazing for dry hands. I used it on my hubbys hands when they get dry and sore and the next day they r silky soft. I only deducted a point as it has an odd smell
Blends wellBought this as a foundation brush, product would be great for mixing products however I do not do this. Still works well for foundation
Handbag must have!I use this everyday! On my skin and on my lips! Works as an incredible chapstick and my skin has improved significantly since apply this on my face and neck also.
so goodAnother great product from the line. I found an improvement in my skin’s texture after regular use.
Excellent multi-use product!This product is great value for money- you only need a tiny bit and the tube lasts a very long time! This cream is really versatile and can be used as lip balm, hand/foot/cuticle cream, as well as on elbows and any dry spots on your body. The herbal smell is quite strong but I really like it.
DecentIt’s okay! I’ve been using it for years and it never fails me but it’s nothing overly special in my opinion.
loveVery well priced for such an effective product, will be repurchasing!I found an improvement in my skin’s texture after regular use.
GreatI bought after seeing it on ‘this morning’ and thought I would try it for my very dry hands. Really nice cream, very thick but you only need a very small amount and as you work it into your hands they feel lovely. I love the smell, I put on morning and night and it has really helped
all rounder super balmI love this all rounder balm which you can use for skin irritation / cracked lips / any kind of mild scars on the face to protect. You just need a tiny bit so 1 tube lasts for a long long time.
Brilliant product but very strong smellI have loved and used this for many years - over 20 I'd say - since I was a teenage model and makeup artists used to rave about it as a wonder product. Because it lasts FOREVER, I managed to go several years without buying a new tube (I had many tubes on the go around the place) until a while ago. Anyway the smell seems to be a LOT stronger than it used to be - too much for me! Perhaps I'm just more sensitive to smells these days, or they boosted the fragrance, I'm not sure. Anyway, I'm keen to try the fragrance-free version next time!
Can’t live withoutThere has been a tube in my bed side table for too long I can admit. I put on my lips in the colder months and they are soft and supple in the morning! Can’t live without
A long term stapleI have been using this cream (although its more like an ointment) for over 20 years. It’s awesome for your cuticles, cracked heals and as a luxurious hand cream. I also use it on my face if I am really dry (I put it on the morning if I’m not wearing makeup and leave it on all day).
The tube lasts forever and it’s definitely a product you need to purchase at least once.
Thick, moisturising must haveI was given a small tube of this as a birthday present one year and it’s become a staple in both my hand bag and bathroom ever since. With a thick, ointment like consistency, it locks in moisture to hydrate even the driest areas. I use first thing in the morning and an hour or so before my night cream in the evening. I would recommend this for all skin types that experience dryness.
cult classic & a must haveone of the best all rounder! I use it on my hands, lips & any dry patches. It was recommended by my dermatologist. I prefer the fragrance free one though.
<3I absolutely love this, the whole reason i decided to try it was i was reading a book by Victoria Beckham and she said this was one product she couldn't live without and had been using for years and years and i knew it had a bit of a cult following but wasn't that big on the smell to start with, it's nice and nostalgic smelling but it does have a deep purfumed smell, well i find it does anyway. I love the added glow this gives to my skin, i feel so glam like a catwalk model and i always get comments on how healthy and glowing i look. I love it and it's a thick product too and will last me for ages! Looks beautiful on the brow bone and the top of the cheeks :)
A winter staple.Absolutely fantastic product. It turns around chapped lips/ dry skin literally overnight. Perfect for elbows/ knees/ overblown noses. Consistency is quite thick/ greasy and it has a slightly mecidinal smell that I don't mind. Been using it for years.
Great except for the scentI own this one and the fragrance free version, the latter definitely being my preference. With the exception of the scent, I love this ointment (I wouldn't call it a cream) and it does exactly what it promises. I use it every night on my lips and on any patches of dry skin. It also works great as an everyday moisturising lip gloss, a lipstick topper, to gloss up eyelids and eyebrows and even works as a highlighter when tapped over cheekbones. One tube lasts for a very long time so it's good value. Highly recommended.
A handbag stapleThis cream is a saviour. My skin is exposed to a brutal combination of air-con, aeroplanes and the harsh Pilbara sun, which can leave it feeling like leather. I use the 8 hour cream numerous times during the day on my lips, hands and elbows to restore the moisture. It is also amazing for taming flyaways without having to empty a can of hairspray.
There is a reason it has been around so long..... it is so versatile and so good
This is a very Amazing creamSo I had purchased this as part of the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Original Set 2018 set. So, my big toe nails had been damaged a few years prior because of tight skiing shoes. I used this, and in a short time frame the dark black area on the toenail dissipated - it was taking a real long time to grow out.
Cult classic, strong scentWhoever hasn't heard of Elizabeth Arden's Original Eight Hour Cream has been living under a rock! It has been named a cult classic time and time again- and for good reason. It is a simple thick ointment (it is called a cream but it definitely has an ointment consistency) which helps to protect the driest and most sensitive of skin. Works great with chapped lips and dry patches of skin. It applies thickly and is greasy, so don't expect an elegant formula. It does the job- however as it does contain petrolatum (one of the main ingredients) it does eventually make your lips dryer in the long term! One personal negative is the scent- I am not a fan as it is quite strong, although there appears to be a fragrance free option now available which I haven't tried yet.
The best ointment on the marketThis is a heavy ointment-feeling cream, and it has saved my skin so many times. It is an amazing multi-purpose product that you can use on a variety of skin issues. I actually used it when I played flute and was allergic to my lip plate - it provided a barrier between my skin and the metal but didn't slide around everywhere. I still use it for a lip balm, barrier cream, extra moisturiser, rough elbows and calluses - you name it, you can use it! Wind rash or sunburn, any red skin, this will help. I notice there is a non-perfumed version available but I never had an issue with this one and the smell is not offensive at all. I have very sensitive and dry skin and this is a SAVIOUR in Winter!!
Holy grailAmazing multi use product, will always keep repurchasing!
So many uses for one product!I love this product for so many reasons. I have very dry hands and so before bed, I slather this on and it really soaks in overnight. I also have used this on my face when I've had dry skin (mostly on the cheeks) during the winter months. It's fantastic for applying a little to your lips as well, although I'd recommend the Eight Hour lip product by Elizabeth Arden for that too. It's just a great thing to carry in your handbag and in fact, I have used it on my children's scratches / scrapes when we've been out and about. There's nothing it can't do!
Fantastic productI used this on my severe dermatitis on my hands and with regular use it has all but cleared up. I have never found anything in years that has worked so well on my sensitive hands. If used a few times a day it completely clears my skin up. Perfect barrier type cream. Much better than using cortisone all the time. Quite greasy but worth it to clear up my sore broken red skin. Will be buying this forever now.
Obsessed!I mainly use this product as a lip balm, a thick layer before bed makes them so nourished. A thin layer is great for priming before lipstick and stops matte ones drying out. It has an endless amount of other uses and is a handbag essential I will always continue to repurchase.
Lasts foreverI use this for everything, from chapped lips, dry cuticles to after sunburn care. You only need the smallest amount and the difference is noticeable straight away. I would highly recommend having one in the handbag. It lasts a very long time too so worth every cent.
Holy GrailI've been using this product for over 5 years and it has worked wonders for my chapped lips. I put it in at night, sometimes over some marula oil on my lips to really lock in the moisture!
Use for everythingThis product is amazing I use it when I have a rash, dry skin as a hand cream as a barrier cream
Good multitaskerI use this for chapped lips and sometimes to set eyebrows! I tried applying it all over my face as a moisturiser and it did not absorb, it felt super sticky and thick.
Fixes chapped lipsSo far I have only used this product on my lips. I was super happy with it - it's extremely nourishing and gentle on dry lips, and easy to apply. Can't wait to try it for the other recommended uses.
an old favouriteThe scent is odd, as others have stated - but never overbearing. I LOVE this product. A little goes a long way so therefore it is economical. I also dab on dry patches and believe me when I say it's a miracle worker because it repairs and replenishes dryness on my face quickly. Eight hour cream is perfect on target areas as well before I apply my night cream. A must have!
Terrible smellI tried this in the shop before buying and I could not get over the smell. It smells like petrol, I used it like a hand cream and I couldn’t escape the smell. I ended up returning it for the fragrance free version.
Very goodThis is a very good hand cream. Makes my hands so soft and that's even after I wash my hands!
Wonderful moisture and hydrationI am a disability carer and have to wash my hands more than most people. I lose a great deal of moisture and this product really is amazing. I find a lot of other products sink in and leave my hands dry again almost immediately, but this cream really does protect your skin.
I do find the scent a bit pungent, so I wouldn't use it near my face like they suggest (Eg: lips,etc.).
All up 4 stars out of 5 for quality.
Miracle worker on dry skin but a bit on the noseThis is my go-to product when nothing else will work to remedy dry skin in winter. It has a very think texture that helps it lay on the skin to form a barrier from the elements while providing hydration. The only downside of this product is the smell. I think you either love it or hate it. I'd recommend testing a sample and giving it the sniff test before investing in this cream. Alternatively, Elizabeth Arden has now brought out a fragrance free option.
Should be in everyones handbagI have very dry skin and use this when I get a small flaky area. Fixes it up straight away. I also use it on my eyebrows when I'm going out.
GreatI love this product!
Awesome!I purchased the Elizabeth Arden Original Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant and was pleased with the results. I have dry skin, so I was looking for something that would be suitable for everyday use.
I was not disappointed.
Fixes everythingMy mum swore by this product and put it in my Christmas stocking last year. It fixes EVERYTHING!!! I have dry skin and over the summer suffered from face peeling (after sunburn), chapped lips, dry/cuts on the bottom of my feet from running etc. This helped with all of those things, especially my sunburnt and peeling face. It is so hydrating and brings the skin back to normal by soothing it. Once a month I apply this to my face and put a towel on my pillow and sleep with it on my face overnight. It is quite heavy but it works so well.
I have even given it to my pop to use on his lips and my boyfriend to use on his lips and peeling face and they both couldn't get over how quick it worked!
Definitely a must try!
Chapped Lips? This is for YOUI bought this off the recommendation by Zoella as she was raving about it for her chapped lips. Straight away I bought it. It took me a while to get used to the smell. It is very strong, not bad but strong.
I put this on my lips and hands before bed and it just soaks up. It is awesome. It is so moisturising and long wearing. It lasts a long time on the lips and yet soaks right in on the skin when I use this on my hands.
Also it is awesome as a super extra high shine gloss over your lipsticks. Outer space will be able to see your shining lips. If you don't like strong smells just get the no fragrance one.
The most hydrating AND versatile product ever!Don't be put off by the small size of the tube! A tiny bit of this goes a long way and leaves my skin softer than anything else I've used. It's not too sticky, and not greasy at all. More than anything it's versatile! I use it on my badly chapped lips, which nothing else seems to help. It also doubles as a high-shine lip gloss - you can put it over your matte lippy to gloss it up, plus it protects your lips. My cuticles and nail beds once had awful hangnails and were generally dry - but no sign of dryness or hangnails now. Most products disappear from my skin in an hour or so and I have to keep re-applying, but this cream really does last a long time. If I apply in the morning, my skin is still soft by the evening. The only thing I could gripe about is the smell, which is really strong and (in my opinion) not great, but not unpleasant (It smells very fresh). Great value for money - I have a feeling this tube is going to last me months.
There's a reason it's a classic...After all these years (it was invented in 1930), Eight Hour Cream is STILL a cult classic - not to mention a staple in the makeup kits of industry legends like Val Garland and Pat McGrath. Personally, I have a tube permanently living on my bedside table, where I use it nightly for lips and also all over my cuticles - and sometimes even all over my hands if they are feeling super dry. The tube lasts ages so it's definitely worth it!
Value for moneyI'd heard about the Original Eight Hour Cream many times before but only recently had the opportunity to try it. It's now a staple in my makeup bag. I love that it has multi uses and cuts down the amount of 'essentials' in my bag. I use this on my lips before I go to bed and I wake up with soft moisturised lips.
It's also a massive tube, so I'm loving the value aspect of this product!
