This cream does not deserve any stars basically. The 8 hour moisture is such a hoax! The cream doesn’t absorb well. I can’t even say that it is oily because sadly it’s neither moisturizing nor oily! After two generous layers of application I keep noticing a certain dry , pruning on the inside of my hands which is shocking and disappointing. The hands feel so dry it’s not even funny. And the smell?! It smells like some trip to cheap pharmacy. It’s an expensive hand cream and worth not even a single penny. I like to keep plenty of hand creams at my disposal- I have Neutrogena, palmers, St Ives , fab India, TBS and so far none of them have been least bit disappointing as This one. I think itd be safe to say that it doesn’t qualify as a cream at all.
really disappointing for a Elizabeth Arden product. I have used the 8 hours original cream and body treatment and I was very happy. the fragrance in the hand cream is horrible. plus it is not a good moisturising product. I work in the beauty industry as a chemist and seeing that they used dimethicone in the ingredients (silicone) is poor. I'm not worried about the toxicity of silicones, I just know that silicones are used because they bring nice textures and smoothness. so you have the illusion that your skin is very soft then actually it moisturizes your skin very poorly. the hand cream doesn't penetrate through your skin and you end up with a lot little white solid stuff on your hands. I don't see anything positive in that product.
To be honest, I don't know why this product has such a high rating. This cream is so dry that it's nothing near "intensive moisturizing". Maybe it's good to use in summer, but definitely not in winter in Toronto. It barely helped my dry skin when I used it in Fall. In fact, it's the least moisturizing cream/lotion I've ever bought.
Viene absolutamente sin ningún tipo de precinto, literalmente abierta, vaya. El olor no es bueno, demasiado medicinal para un laboratorio como éste. No sé corresponde para nada con la calidad esperada.
