My Favourite Lip Balms

Hello! I hope you have all had a lovely week and are ready to stuff your faces with Easter eggs! Yay. Today I thought I would show you my top five lip balms because I have been trying out a couple of new ones lately.

My lips are quite dry so I love using lip balms. You probably know, Elizabeth Arden 8 hour lip balm has been my favourite for a very long time but it is fairly pricey, so I have been on the look out for some amazing, cheaper options!


I have the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour lip balm and Eight Hour cream which are both amazing! I use the lip balm in the mornings and I also keep one in my handbag. I never usually have to reapply throughout the day though as this keeps my lips incredibly hydrated!

The Eight Hour cream sits on my bedside table and I use it before I go to bed. It's a lovely cream because it can be used on any dry areas on the body! I love using this on my lips before bed as it leaves them so soft, however it does leave a thick, greasy residue across the lips so I wouldn't use it in the daytime. 


I am on about my fifth lip balm and I am just about to run out! These lip balms have been my favourite for a very long time and they are just incredible. I do actually have the fragrance free cream as well and I have to say, it is not the same at all as the original one! The texture is horrible and it literally does nothing to my lips. Let me know if you have tried the fragrance free one as I would love to know what you think!


Moving onto my newest purchases and possibly my new favourites, NUXE! I bought the tub from Space NK and absolutely fell in love with the product, so my mum bought herself and I the stick version of it too! I use the lip balm stick every single morning and the tub every single evening - they have taken over from my Elizabeth Arden ones. 

When I use the Elizabeth Arden lip balm, I only need to apply it in the morning and my lips stay soft all day. This one I do need to reapply once or twice throughout the day but I don't mind as I much prefer the product! It smells incredible and the texture is lovely to apply!


I would highly recommend these lip balms! The stick is fab to apply before lipstick because it soaks in so well! The tub lip balm is lovely to apply before bedtime and I do apply it sometimes in the morning too as it's not greasy. The texture almost melts into an oil and hydrates my lips amazingly well. It's very creamy and soft, not at all heavy.


Lastly, this is the best scented lip balm EVER! Chocolate and peppermint, yum. This adds a lovely gloss on the lips so I love using this when I am not going to use any lipstick. The other lip balms are better for when my lips are very dry, however this is amazing at moisturising and hydrating my lips throughout the day if they feel slightly dry.


I would highly recommend any of these lip balms as all five are my favourites! Nuxe is definitely my favourite lip balm out of them all! The Elizabeth Arden ones are fantastic for a luxury lip balm that will heal even the driest lips! Lastly, the Palmers Cocoa one is just a gorgeous little one for your handbag that will leave your lips looking glossy and fantastic!

Have you tried any of these lip balms? I would absolutely love to know any recommendation you have for me!

  3. Hi Becky,

    I'm the same in terms of dry lips and the only one I use is the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour, it's just the only one I've ever come across to sooth my lips, however I will give the ones you have mentioned a good go as the one I'm using is super expensive especially for a lip balm, although it is really good it would be nice to be able to buy a few things for the price of the one balm.

    Thank you so much for your recommendations.
    Lots of love doll.

  13. I haven't tried any of these but I'll probably try a Nuxe one soon enough. The L'Occitane shea butter lip balms are amazingly hydrating. Desert rose is my favourite. :)

    I quite like the Cocoa Butter Lip Balm, it is gorgeous! Also LOVE Blistex Relief cream as it sinks into my lips so can easily layer lipstick over it.

  24. I never expected the eight hour cream product to look like that out of the tube, looks more like an oil.
    Really want to try the Nuxe lip stuff, I love the brand and have a couple of bits of skin care from them already.
    The dark chocolate and peppermint sounds so tasty but I'm not a huge fan of dark chocolate haha.
