I put this on my lips and cuticles and horrible eczema patches an hour ago and already my lips feel smooth, full and plump, and my cuticles are smooth and moist instead of dry and peeling like they were.
I WOULD NEVER USE THIS ON MY FACE and I don't think it was intended for the face as it is mostly vaseline. This is more like medicine to heal skin lesions on the body.
At first whiff the smell made me gag. Now I really like it. It smells like old fashioned medicine that has been on the shelf for 100 years. It reminds me of something I smelled long ago in a garage: turpentine, gasoline, tar, compost, and iodine. It's a stink, but after a while you realize it is a good type of stink. You get used to the stink very fast and don't notice it much after a short while, especially when you see what this sticky stuff can do for you.
It's too early to tell if it will help my horrible scaley lesions on my arms but I will report back either way.
UPDATE THE NEXT DAY:
My scaley lesions are almost gone already and my lips peeled and peeled to reveal plump, smooth red lips that I had many years ago. They had shriveled up like old prunes. I never thought they would ever look like this again without collagen injections.
My cuticles look fantastic.
This really is a miracle cream. Didn't remove my wrinkles however.
I got it at TJMaxx for $9.99.
I always wonder why TJMaxx sells Elizabeth Arden products so cheap.
This shows that Paula Begoun's website is bogus. She says this is bad stuff. She just reads the ingredients for things and usually says they are bad, like she did for this cream. Well, this proves she can't rate things just by reading the ingredients. These are the most basic old ingredients, yet I have not had anything work as well for problems on my skin as this.
Don't get it for your face, get it for cuticles, lips, and scars or marks or lesions on the body because I have not found anything that comes close for these areas.
Yes, this stuff is a bit vile and smells like axle grease. Heck it might be axel grease! But it really does wonders for the cuticles. Don't think I can rub it all over my hands, but it is worth it for gnawed looking fingers. Besides, it tastes funny, so you won't want to bite your nails! Or your lips...
finally got my hands on this..ive been waiting forever for marshalls to get it
finally! 10 bucks! I'm soooo happy i found it it's amazing my lips look fuller, my eyes look more rested :) i really wanna try it on my skin but im scared it might break me out..although it does says it calms and heals still i dont know,anyone with oily skin / breakout prone try it?
anyway i will def repurchase at full price if i dont find it when i run out at marshalls again!
I adore this orangey goop, with its herbaceous scent and nostalgiac conotations. Can cure almost anything but a broken heart, and don't think I haven't tried.
Okay, first of all this is NOT and never promises to be an everyday face cream so everyone who rated it low for this reason should read instructions before doing so. Secondly, Eight Hour Cream (and I am not impressed easilly) is almost a magical cure for a multitude of things. This can be used for dry lips, dry patches anywhere on the body (or face), burns, irritations, anything really. Yes it does have a strange smell and yes it is gooey and sticky but this is an attribute because it stays where it needs to stay and protects skin from the elements and germs and such. My partner recently burned his arm with acid (don't ask : ) ) Eight Hour Cream saved him from severe scarring and peeling. He applied the cream morning and night. Now, a week (and a couple soiled shirts) later there is barely a mark there. This is a burn that should have caused a lot more hassle and possibly scarring. I've been using Eight Hour Cream for years and always have a tube handy for emergencies. I really hate it when other people bag it because they do not know what it's for and how to use it.
In a nutshell:
Yes, it is the prestigious product that every woman and magazine swears by it. It does smell a bit odd, but once you get past it, two thumbs up! An amazingly natural gloss that isn't sticky and lasts. Add a bit on your cheekbones for an instant wow factor and it has simple, cute packaging.
It's a bit exxy, but really..you need to try it once.
wanted to buy it for a very long time Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream and was very happy with the look it gives my lips orange? looking delicious, plumps my lips, my skin, my mouth up, very nice glow, look sheen, glowy, glow, very very beautiful
A waste of money. It smells awful & does nothing. I'd heard people rave about it & decided I had to try it--I see NOTHING to rave about & nothing to make me want to buy it again. continued >>
This product worked wonders for me. I use it as a night cream and put it on a little before i go to bed and wake up with better skin the next morning. Initially, I bought this because my skin always suffers the most when I am stressed, I tend to get awful dry little bumps and dry red patches all over my face and it takes a couple of weeks to clear up. I heard about 8hr cream and decided to give it a shot and after applying it for 2-3 days, my skin was all clear. I now use it every night and have pretty much FLAWLESS skin.
Sure it smells funny and looks like gunk, but it works.
Okay. I have really dry, flaky skin patches sometimes on my legs, face ect. because I have majorly sensitive skin. Also I get chapped lips pretty badly. I really wanted to see what all the hype was about with this product, but Im afraid I was severley disapointed. Firstly, the smell. Normally I don't mind product smells, and this one wan't too bad. At first. Don't forget- I had put this on my lips as a balm, and everythime I breathed through my nose I got a large whiff of this. It smells just like Mosquito repellent. I used it on my body, and it was nothing great- it still took the same amount of time to clear up my dry skin as my E45 cream. Also, for what this is, it's hideously overpriced. Theres nothing that this cream/goop could do that a good chapstick and a tube of E45 could already.
