Winter is now fully upon us and as a result, my lips have become extremely dry and parched. My go-to lip balms and chapsticks don’t seem to soothe the dryness for long and my lips are soon left feeling sore and parched again. I was in Boots a couple of weeks ago and I whimsically purchased Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Lip Protectant. Firstly, I love the limited edition red Christmas packaging (the lip creams usually come in a white bullet). Secondly, I love how it provides an instant surge of moisture to my lips. I have really noticed a dramatic improvement in the condition of my lips.
It’s a great overnight lip treatment as I apply a generous layer at night and find that by morning my lips feel soft, moisturised and rejuvenated. I apply liberally during the day and can wear my lipstick over the top. It contains emollients and Vitamin E which have healing and moisturising properties. It has the same formulation as the cult classic Eight Hour Cream except that it comes in a lipstick format. You can even use it in the summer as it contains SPF 15.
A must have Winter Essential to treat very dry, chapped or sore lips.
