THE ONLY LIP BALM THAT HAS FIXED MY CHAPPED LIPS
In this crazy NYC weather you've GOT to take care of your lips! This lip conditioner healed my NYC weather abused lips practically overnight and I've been using it religiously. I will never use another lip balm again!
It's not really scented and the taste is okay (not that i eat lip balms but you know....sometimes you lick your lips and stuff..idk)
Any who, I am extremely satisfied and this product works great with lipsticks and lip glosses.
Nice for Night
I keep this balm in my nightstand drawer and put it on before I go to sleep. I wake up in the morning with soft, kissable, and lipstick ready lips! I highly recommend it!
Worked when nothing else would!
I have been so blown away by this product. Normally, I apply lip balm once or twice a day, usually just before I go to bed. I woke up one morning with really chapped lips, and so I reached for the current lip balm I'd been testing: the eos balm in Summer Fruit. I ended up applying it probably another 20 times that day, but my lips kept feeling dry. This continued for the next few days, but the skin on my lips started flaking, and getting cracked at the corners of my mouth in a horribly painful way. So I drank tons of water and tried also using my Rosebud Salve tin (Strawberry flavor). This didn't help much (but did feel nicely soothing). In the next 3 weeks, I felt like I tried everything: plain petroleum jelly, Vaseline lip Therapy, aloe (cut freshly from my aloe plant!), NYC lip slider tins, my original balm of Softlips in Cool Cherry, occasional lip exfoliating sessions with olive oil and cane sugar, even regular omega-3 and vitamin intake, and nothing worked! I was getting desperate, so I tried looking on Sephora for something high-end that might be more effective. I found this to be one of the most highly rated (and affordable!) lip conditioners, and with the Sephora VIB sale, picked up a duo pack of these to try for $16 + 20% off (they normally retail for $12 each).
I applied that night before bed and the next morning was the first morning I'd woken up without cracked lips in almost a month. Amazing! I reapplied throughout the day, but found that I only needed to do so after doing something that involved touching my lips (i.e. eating, face washing, tooth brushing). The conditioner seemed to sink into my lips in a soothing way, like a heavy cream on super dry skin. It doesn't feel slippery on my lips like other petrolatum products do, nor is it sticky like the NYC lip slider tins. I think this lip conditioner would provide the best base surface on your lips for applying other lip products on top. Fastforward to a mere 4 days after purchase: I'm applying this stuff only 3 times a day and the flaking is almost nonexistent. I no longer feel tightness on my lips and am finally going to get around to testing out my lipstick/gloss haul that's been taunting me these last few weeks. I also love that 95% of the ingredients are from a natural source. No petrolatum here! Seriously, HG!
It comes in a nice lipstick form with a smooth twist up mechanism; the packaging is a little cheap for the individual tubes since they don't have any sort of seal on them while the duo packs do. There is a faint vanilla smell; I don't love the smell, but this factor is negligible considering how amazing this stuff is. The texture of the stick is firm, so I hold it against my lip for a few seconds to warm it up before swiping and it works well. Good thing I picked up the duo pack because I can't imagine using anything else for these dry winter months in California!
