Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jimmy 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 paraffin..trust me, I've tried it all. I only wish it was less expensive.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Molly21 from Maybe I Received A Bad Batch??? I just received the mega-bonus sized (17.9 oz) on special. I've never used this before and was excited to after reading the reviews. I put it on one arm just to see how soft it made it, then went about my business. Everyone that came within 10 feet of me asked if I just used bug spray....Raid....or wasp killer. The scent of citronella is immensely overpowering for a whole body cream. So glad I did not apply it all over me, as I have just washed my arm for the third time and it still smells like bug spray. I love EA and all the goodies I've received, however this is definitely a bad batch. I cannot image a woman wanting to smell like mosquito spray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nessa from great for multiple use Product rating ... excellent .. packaging Poor... I'm really disappointed that this product is only sold in tubes. I love the jar and I miss it. actually I stopped purchasing it for quited sometime because of that . it bacame more expensive and less in quantity. I first started using this product many years ago (around 40yrs) it was in a much larger Jar the jar was light pink color and over twice the OZ amount . The last purchase I made was when a promotional sale took place where the jar was brought back in a 1 OZ glass jar.. I really wish you could bring back the jar vs the tubes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissDebbie from A MUST HAVE This is a multiple use winner. Yes the 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 use it to smooth and protect skin under my eyebrows prior to plucking stray hairs. 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DeeDeeDeLovely 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsDebbie from Dry Skin Miracle I have extremely dry skin and thought I'd use this on a stubborn dry patch under my eye that was there for months. I tried everything and nothing worked. As you can imagine, my foundation and concealer only accentuated it - even though I treat, moisturize and prime :( This little miracle saved the day! One application and my skin was smoother. That night after cleansing and moisturizing I applied just a dab... and by morning, that dry patch was finally gone! Now I find myself reaching for my 8 hour cream every day to soften and smooth wherever I need it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susana 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 5 out of 5 by oceansouth from Long Time Friend I have been using Eight Hour Cream since my 20's (now 66). I bought my first jar when it was in a giant, beautiful, black and gold jar! I loved diving into that jar an using the cream on my face, hands and lips to keep them smooth. My husband even got used to the "scent" and loved it. Bring back the big black and gold jar. It was as special as the cream. Love this stuff.
