Kiehl's Lip Balm #1

9.2.10
no1

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]

  2. This sounds really nice - and such a reasonable price tag. A space n.k opened in my town ages ago and i've not ventured in yet, i need to get over my whole being intimidated by the beautiful ladies that work in there. That and i think i'd spend every penny i had haha

  7. Vasline has REALLY let me down this year! I am currently using Dermalogica's lip treatment and I hope to get my hands on a Korres lip butter soon! :) x

  8. Kiehl's lip balm #1 has been my HG ever since I purchased it 10 months ago.. It really relieves my chapped lips.. 1 tube can last a long long time. I tried Kiehl's lip balm in Mango, also delicious.. Vanilla seem yummy too... think they also have in other yummy-delicious flavours like cranberry, pear, mint.. but I have ye to try...

    Yes, after you tried it, you will know why so many people been raving about it!

    Cheers,

  9. when i notice my lips dry i have to find a solution soon like to wear a lips balm, because my lips can lose the smoothness, even the natural colour because of the dead skin or dry and try to keep my skin young always.
    This is very important for a woman who want to be sexy. So i always recomend to
    buy viagra to the men who i go out.
