Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Intensive Lip Repair Balm Honest Review

Hi everyone!

I’m guessing this is going to be the first of MANY blog posts from me while everyone including myself is self isolating (what is going on😭).

I’ve had my hands on this balm for a few weeks now and been meaning to do a blog post. I wanted to make sure I’d had it a substantial enough time so I can give you a full, and honest review!

Since I can remember I have always suffered with dry/chapped lips. Up until a few years ago I only used vaseline and it was not for me. I then moved onto Carmex, which granted was good, but I never felt it actually stayed on long enough to do the job and keep the chapped lips from coming back a few days later.

For Valentines this year, me and Sam did the P&O Dutch Dash to Amsterdam, apart from the fact that I was soooo sea sick, we had a lovely time.

On board the ship they had a duty free shop, and me being a numpty, I forgot my Carmex, and rushed to duty free in a panic. My lips were in bits, even to the point where they were bleeding in the cracks!

I saw this balm and remembered that in the past, I had recieved an eight hour oil from Elizabeth Arden to review and I LOVED it! You can read my review here. I knew I liked the 8 hour range and if I’m honest there wasn’t much choice in terms of lip balm so I headed to the till to purchase this little pot… and I am so glad I did.

The glass pot contains 10g of product, which doesn’t seem like a lot but with the texture being a gel like consistency a little goes a very long way!

I was super sea sick on board so my lips were very dehydrated, I applied this every few hours and a larger amount before bed and the next day my lips were repaired. I really wish I had taken a before picture of my lips but it wasn’t really a priority for me as you can imagine!

I use around a finger tip size of the product, and even though I’ve used this every day for over a month it looks barely used.

I’m not going to lie, the price is a little steep (£20) at first glance, so definitely look out for online deals! However the cost per wear is super low and I really would recommend this if you find Carmex and Vaseline not to be enough.

Have you tried this or anything from the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Range?
