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 hours later the skin was all better.

Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elizabeth Arden Original 8 Hour Cream A must have beauty essential. I have used it for years. Always in handbag in a little pot. Always on dressing table. Always take on holiday. Great for soothing scorched skin. Gentle enough for tiny babes and bigger babes too! 20 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Miracle product This is one of very few beauty products that delivers what it promises! Use it as a beauty product on lips, eyelids and eyebrows or as a medicinal product on any unpleasant skin rashes. It is also very long lasting, so good value for money too. Excellent! 22 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very useful product A miracle cream that clears complexion outbreaks. Will also quickly heal nicks and other minor skin problems. Wouldn't be without it. 28 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 30 years and still using At 41, I think I've been using this product for at least the last 30 years. My mum used to swear by this for everything from inflamed rashes, spots to chapped lips. I bought a new tube at Christmas because no matter how many times I tried to moisturise my lips with chapsticks, it wouldn't work - it worked with this. Even my partner who is against all things even slightly girly had to admit that some rubbed into his sore nose from a cold worked wonders. 10 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must have! Bought this for my mum as she kept borrowing mine! She is now an Eight Hour convert! 30 May 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skin saver Tremendous results. This amazing cream has made the world of difference to my daughter's sensitive skin 04 April 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Expensive but worth the money Bought this product on the recommendation of a friend as my skin had become very dry and sore on my ring finger. Although rather greasy, you only need to use a small amount, and rather a strange perfume it really did the trick and my finger is now totally healed and I can wear my rings again. 22 February 2012
