My lips have been soo dry lately and nothing seems to be helping! Obviously working in beauty retail I am constantly re applying all sorts! I love baume de rose by by terry..the smell is beautiful (I guess not if you dislike rose) anyhoo i still can't justify £32 for a lipbalm that I could easily finish in two weeks!
I got given the keihls numer 1 lip balm to try. It comes in a tube and is now available in various different flavours, as well as the original one with SPF in it. I have the vanilla one, which is lovely as it's not too heavily scented. Anyways I thought I'd try it out. So whilst I moisturised my face I applied the lip balm. It comes out quite thick and you only need a tiny bit as it goes a long way. I applied this all over and seriously my lips looked HUGE! And very shiny but the instant feeling was amazing. I carried on applying my make up by the time I got to applying my lipstck I rubbed the lipbalm in. I then applied my lipstick which happened to be an illmasqua matte one. Matte lipsticks in general can be very drying and I always feel like half way through the day I end up looking all flaky. I tend to take it off and reapply. However it got to around 4 (this being after lunch) whilst the lipstick had faded as it would, my lips were not dry at all. They still felt supersoft I was really impressed! I had no desire to put anymore on during the day. It also acted as a great base for my lipstick which lasted pretty much all day. I have it on today and whilst it gives my lips a lovely glow it also keeps them feeling smooth which has been a rarity for these winter months. I highly recommend this product, I would definetley re purchase. I think it's around £9 It is cool that even tho I'm a part time sales assistant I get to try out products. It really allows me to give honest opinions to customers, family and friends. I think there's nothing worse than going home with a product that does f*** all!
Have any of you guys tried this lip balm?! It has to be their number 1 for a reason right? ! What have you been using on you lips in this cold weather? Is anything working..I thought Vaseline would be my saviour and for once it wasn't!
[Sorry I wrote this post last week.. It has taken me this long to upload it, I have noticed a difference within a week. My lips definitely feel a lot smoother]
