ELIZABETH ARDEN EIGHT HOUR CREAM LIP PROTECTANT STICK & LANCÔME JUICY TUBES LIP GLOSS


In case someone asked me what was the first product of decorative cosmetics that I ever used, I’d immediately answer the lip balm. I remember that as a little girl I always wanted to try my mother’s lipsticks, but she wouldn’t allow it and as an alternative bought me a balm. I was so proud to have my own “lipstick” and enjoyed immensely to check and fix it in the mirror. I carried that affection into the adulthood and I adore lipsticks and glosses, but balms remains to be the basis without which my day is unimaginable – I apply them every morning after washing my face and each night before sleeping. Nowadays the selection is widely ranged and anyone, as far as texture, ingredients, fragrance and color are concerned, can easily find the right one. For myself I chose Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick Sunscreen SPF 15, identical balm in Blush hue and Lancôme Juicy Tubes.

Labial glands lag behind in producing substantial amounts of oily substances so balms are unavoidable item in lips nursing. They provide hydration, defense from external aggressors that causes drying and cracking and keeps them silken and cultivated. My absolute beloved is Chanel Rouge Coco Baume which, if used regularly, accomplish long lasting result and enables the lips to retain natural moisture. It’s also one of the most exclusive balms in the world and what it offers and why I prefer it you can read here.

A worthy competitor in terms of quality is Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick Sunscreen SPF 15. This balm is a part of Eight Hour collection, popular primarily due to the cream presented by Elizabeth Arden in 1930. and designed to protect the skin, to relieve irritation, to alleviate wind burns, to hydrate the body, droughty and raspy hands and to soften the cuticles. The name itself was coined by a consumer who utilize the cream on her son’s bruised knee, which magically healed in 8 hours.

The balm is packed in white metal box and reminds of a lipstick in appearance. The texture is firmer compared to Rouge Coco Baume but when it encounters the lips it momentarily dissolves, lightly smears and simultaneously generates preventive hydration. The formula is saturated by intense scent which lingers for a while. It’s ideal for winter because, regardless of weather conditions or temperatures, the lips are safe from sear and splitting. Thanks to the SPF factor that I highly appreciate, I duly wear it in the summer too. When it’s applied independently it is completely transparent and therefore perfect foundation for matte lipsticks.

Beside standard balms, I like those in different shades even more. I was thrilled when I heard that Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick is obtainable in 4 nuances: Blush, Berry, Honey and Plum. I decided for gently pink Blush which, for the purposes of color volume, can be dialed up with additional layers. With what exactly it won me over, you can find here.

Lancôme Juicy Tubes Ultra Shiny Hydrating Lip Gloss, although gloss, I began to use as a balm quite accidentally. Once I went to town wearing only it and, since it was colder than I expected, I was afraid that the gale would shrivel and lacerate my lips. However, nothing similar occurred and from then on, when I’m not in the mood for lipstick but still want to embower my lips with a bit of shine, I employ it as a balm. The product is contained in 15 ml plastic tube with an interesting top applicator that warrants precise infliction and coating. 

There are 8 hues available and I picked Cerise with a wonderful and refreshing fruity nectar aroma. I’d describe it as fragrance of bonbons, a delicious and gourmet delight on the lips! As the name itself says, it procures exceptionally vigorous luster, moisturizes and beautifies the lips, while emphasize them by a glamorous lacquered effect.

I reviewed L’Occitane Shea Vanilla Bouquet and Ultra Rich Lip Balm in more detail in YouTube video which is placed at the end of the post and now has subtitles in English. Here I’ll just mention that both are enriched with shea butter and ensures necessary protection to the lips, as well as nourishment and regeneration in an instance of dryness and cracking.

Have you tried any of these balms? Which are your favorites? Write me in the comments.
Best wishes till the next post!
