The Legend

Created in 1930 by Elizabeth Arden to soothe skin, Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant became an instant and overwhelming success. What made it so effective is a combination of petrolatum, a skin-soothing beta-hydroxy in one of its first cosmetic uses, and vitamin E. The apricot coloured balm was so beneficial to her clients, Miss Arden 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.

Key Ingredients

Petrolatum (56.8%), Lanolin, Mineral Oil, Tocopherol, BHT, Salicylic Acid, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil (Castor), Vegetable Oil, Zea Mays Oil (Corn), Fragrance, Citral, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool, Propylparaben, Iron Oxides

Expert Advice

Simply smooth directly on with fingertips whenever and wherever needed. Avoid contact with eyes.

A must have.

I always carry this in my bag. If my lips are chapped I apply this and within an hour my lips feel fabulous. It is amazing for dry hard working hands too. Perfect for dry patches including eczema. The list is endless!

I first used Eight Hour Cream over 40 years ago. Back then I worked for Elizabeth Arden and learned the history of the product and why it was developed in the first place. It was really one of the most iconic products on the market, today this still applies. It is my product of choice for virtually everything, from cuts, bites, eczema, swelling, soothing, sores...the list is endless!

Must have

Total :


I was introduced to 8 hour cream in 1988 and have been using it ever since. Ita a staple on my Christmas wish list. A little goes a long way. As a nurse the constant hand washing can take its toll on my hands leaving them dry and prone to cracking. I like to start and finish my working day by massaging in a small amount, a little goes a long way and can cover both hands and allows me time to massage it into my cuticles too. This cream makes me feel my skin is repaired, moisturised and protected. There is an initial feel of relief to the skin, it feels instantly nourished bus there is also the benefit of being able to massage the skin without dragging. I have also used this cream on my face overnight for a deep moisturising treat, especially useful when the summer sun or winter blast has has given it a hammering . Again a little goes a long way and I'm able to spend time massaging it in. I've also used it for dry lips, elbows and the very occasional cracked heel effectively. It is multipurpose and cost effective as it lasts for ages.

Excellent product

I get really dry feet due to a medical condition as well as living in a hard water area. This product has been fantastic in keeping my feet constantly moisturised throughout the day. I also use it on my elbows. Great stuff.

Best product ever

Total :


I am writing this review at 2am as I had a nightmare this product was discontinued- that's how much I love it. This is by far my best product ever. I have used it since my very early teens if not earlier and it is good for EVERYTHING. This is my go to product whenever my skin feels dull, dry or is breaking out for an unknown reason. It is an intense moisturiser which is gentle on sensitive skin too. I use it all over my face and sleep with it all night whenever my skin needs a pick me up. It is a very sticky solution so doesn't rub into the skin which is why I use it all over at night only. Sometimes use a little on my lips as a gloss if they are very chapped. This product is also good on burns or cuts to prevent scarring. It is good for all skin types-through the years I've used this on my oily teen skin and nowadays on my dryer/ combination skin. You only need a tiny amount each time. I am a make up artist and I recommend this product to all my brides.
