Product Details

Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant is the legendary skincare formula created in 1930 by Miss Arden to soothe and protect skin. An instant, overwhelming success, the Eight Hour® brand continues its legacy today. Celebrated by makeup artists and beauty influencers around the globe, its wonderful versatility and proven results have elevated it to “cult status” in the beauty industry.

The name Eight Hour® was coined by a devoted Elizabeth Arden client who used the cream on her child’s grazed knee, and ”eight hours later”, it was magically better.

8 Ways to Use Eight Hour®

Apply head-to-toe to seal in moisture and experience hours of hydrated, healthy-looking skin with each use.


AT FACE VALUE: Simply rub a dime-sized amount in the palms of hands to warm through, then pat onto the face to seal in moisture.
COMES IN HANDY: Deep condition by working the formula into palms and over the fingers, then wrapping each hand for 10 minutes in a warm towel.
HEEL-TO-TOE HEALING: Relieve weary feet by mas­saging the cream generously onto soles, pads and heels, then topping with cotton socks for deeper moisturization to heal dry skin.
A FLASH OF BRILLIANCE: Create instant radiance wherever skin normally catches the light, including legs, shoulders, collarbone, cheeks and bow of the lips.
LAVISH THE LIPS: With its effective moisturizing ingredients, this do-it-all wonder perfectly re-hydrates chapped lips.
THE MANE BENEFITS: In addition to its properties as a “skin savior,” the cream’s petrolatum and natural lanolin help smooth strands and moisturize dry ends.
FROST SMITTEN: It can be smoothed onto skin as protection from windburn, particularly when adventuring outdoors.
KEEPING IT HIGH-BROW: Run the tiniest amount through eyebrows to groom hairs, helping neaten and define the arch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 40 Years and Still A Champ! I started using 8 Hour cream as a graduate student over 40 years ago and it's still the absolutely best product I use on my skin! I've tried many, many products on my lips over the years to combat chapped lips and nothing tops 8 hour cream! It's still the very best thing for any dry, cracked or irritated skin! I would recommend it to anyone for it's many and varied uses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I can't live without it I'm probably not the typical customer for this product, I'm a 41 year old man who has suffered with dry skin and eczema all my life. It's been a challenge trying to find the right balance of skin rehydration but without the gloopyness and smell of paraffin based emollients for my face. About 10 years ago I found that my rubbing an small amount of 8 hour cream into my hands and mixing with a lighter white moisturier (Eucerin for me) my face and neck had just the right balance that I needed.. with a healthy glow too. It's not the same as Vaseline or soft me, I've tried it all. I only wish it was less expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The original formulation works great. I have been using 8-hour cream for 48 years. My hands dry and crack in cold weather. Nothing works except this, which has never failed me. My wife has the same experience. The new formulation is not as effective. I hope Elizabeth Arden continues to make the original formulation and I would buy the large jars if it were offered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to use instead of lip gloss I don't find the smell offensive. I have used it for years all through the day to help with dry lips. I also spread it on just before I go to bed. Without it my lips would be cracked and dry. I hope they never stop making it. I put the product in small containers from The Container Store and have them in almost every room. It is also very good for cuticles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing but.... I love this product after just one use. It does what is claims. I made the choice to buy based off of suggestions made by Youtube beauty gurus, Lisa Eldridge and Pixiwoo. The challenge for me is the scent hence the reason for 4 stars. This was my first time purchasing this product and I wanted to get the original. I first opted for the unscented version and changed my mind. Now I wish had stuck with my original decision. It smells like aging topical ointment. But all in all, a great product. I will repurchase only in the unscented version.
