My lips have been suffering so much lately, they have been so dry and the only thing that seems to be keeping them moisturised and hydrated is the 8 Hour lip protectant stick by Elizabeth Arden. I was given this in part of a gift bag when I attended LFWE (Post HERE) but I have only got round to using this more recently. To be honest, I am not the biggest 8 hour cream fan I know my best friend and my mum swear by it but I have to admit the smell puts me off (Read my review HERE). The scent of this lip balm however isn't as strong in the standard 8 hour cream, to me it is more citrus based something I can deal with. I have been applying this in the mornings and I find it keeps my lips hydrated for hours (not sure about 8!) without me having to constantly apply it. Another thing I like is that this lip balm doesn't have a gloss to it, the formula is definitely more matte therefore I find it absorbs well into the lips. It also has an SPF of 15 which is beneficial and the EA lip balm is highly enriched with vitamin E.
The only downside to this lip balm is that it's a little pricey for the amount of product you get. This picture is pretty accurate to how much is in the lipstick bullet. The packaging however is very glam!
