Elizabeth Arden: Eight Hour Cream Intensive Repair Lip Balm – Review *

Skincare is something we all love and use, even if it’s the most basic of products or the most advanced – we all use it.

Being a beauty blogger means that I get to test and work with some amazing brands and in this post I’m writing about theย Elizabeth Arden: Eight Hour Cream Intensive Repair Lip Balm coming from the well known and loved Eight Hour range.

Elizabeth Arden: Eight Hour Cream Intensive Repair Lip Balm – Review – Packaging

For me Elizabeth Arden is what I consider a ‘high-end‘ brand and this can be seen right from the packaging.

It comes in a lovely little box and upon opening it you’re greeted with a little leaflet containing more information about the ‘eight hour range’, the products and what they all do.

The jar itself is lovely, small and quite cute – it’s frosted glass and feels extremely smooth (unlike some products on the market) and I love the fact that you can still see the lovely shade of pink through the glass.

On the lid you can see the Elizabeth Arden logo in the centre, surrounded by the number ‘8’ so you know it comes from the eight hour range.

Under the jar there’s a little ‘how to use‘ booklet which pulls out so you can read it in different languages – another cute touch!

Elizabeth Arden: Eight Hour Cream Intensive Repair Lip Balm – Review – Texture

The texture of this is really lovely, as you can see in the pictures above it’s a solid balm and only melts from the natural warmth of your skin.

When applied this actually feels like a balm but at the same time it’s so lightweight! There’s no oiliness to it whatsoever and within minutes your lips feel a lot softer and smoother making this the perfect base before for lipstick too!

This is unlike any other lip balm I’ve used, for the first couple of minutes after applying it has a cooling / tingling effect which feels quite nice and I would normally expect this type of feeling from a face wash but it really is lovely.

As it says in the name, this is an intensive repair lip balm and only one other product has given me results like this and it’s the Clarins Hydraquench Lip Balm – results in minutes and perfect as an overnight treatment.

Elizabeth Arden: Eight Hour Cream Intensive Repair Lip Balm – Review – Uses

The main way to use this is as a lip balm, it moisturises and heals dry/chapped skin plus it’s scientifically proven that this will strengthen the lip’s delicate moisture barrier – hooray for the winter months!

I also like using a little amount on cuticles to keep skin soft and nourished.

During the day you could also use this very lightly over the brows to add a natural ‘shine‘ to them. ๐Ÿ™‚

Elizabeth Arden: Eight Hour Cream Intensive Repair Lip Balm – Review – Overall

I love this product and the fact it’s now on the same level as my favourite lip balm means that this deserves a recommendation from me to you lovely readers.

If you’re looking for a product that delivers results quickly then this is it, it’s not a must-have but more of an ‘essential‘ to every beauty/skincare/makeup lover – use it alone as a intensive lip balm, under lipstick, on cuticles and on brows – I’m sure you’ll love this!

Stuck on gift ideas for Christmas? This is a wonderful little stocking filler and although it’s slightly pricier than your average lip balm, it’s not an average product!

Results are great and this will easily last 4-5 months with daily use!

Elizabeth Arden: Eight Hour Cream Intensive Repair Lip Balm – Review – Purchase

This is priced at ยฃ20 and even though it’s small this will last you 4-5 months when using it every night or during the day as needed.

      I’ve heard so much about the Nuxe Reve de Miel but haven’t tried it yetโ€ฆโ€ฆit’s a great product and will last a long time so the ยฃ20 price tag is OK but I know a lot of people wouldn’t spend it on a lip balm but it does the job and in minutes ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

    This looks and sounds really lovely. I normally use good old Vaseline as a lip balm… much cheaper, and does a good job, but certainly not as prettily packaged as this! I suspect the Elizabeth Arden would be better to have in winter though, when my lips can get a bit more cracked and damaged. x

      In the winter it can be a pain so hydrating products like this are what you should be going for but I’ll have a post all about lip balms soon! ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

    This is such a cult product! I first heard of this thanks to Lisa Eldridge, it’s one of her favourite product to use for prepping her lips. I have yet to try this but I am planning to soon!
