Review: Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm

There is nothing in the world that i hate and fear most other than breakouts, it has to be dry and chapped lips.
Well, why is that so?

Let me count thee ways:
1. The skin on our lips are the thinnest and most fragile yet its one of the most neglected areas on our body.
2. There is no cosmetic surgery (not any that i know of) that can reverse or repair any aging or damage done to the lips, so what's done is done and that's that.
3. Dry and chapped lips can crack and bleeds plus its painful (and i had to have the "fortune"of suffering from that once and once is more than enough).

I used to be satified with my trusty stick lipbalm, but ever since my encounter with Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip balm, i would say i am expecting more from my old trusty lip balm. Clarins Lip balm not only performed its job of soothing my dry lips well, it is able to soften them almost instantaneously and revive it with a slightly pinkish tone.

15 ml worth of lip balm is enough to last me almost 4 to 5 months with daily usage

The "toothpaste" way of dispensing the lip balm makes it hassle free and more hygienic

The slight pinkish tone is due to one of the active ingredients, Rose Wax

Packaging-wise, i find the tube convenience and hygienic, there body of the tube is of soft plastic so you only dispense the amount you need, plus there is no need for me to dig my fingers into (unlike some other lip balms in pots). The slant shaped opening makes the application a no-brainer. A little fuss-free package, really! A score in my book.

Texture-wise, the lip balm is a little waxy but not sticky, it resembles a little like lip gloss but slightly thicker. Like all lip balms, apply as required, so i don't really mind about that.

Scent-wise, like majority of Clarins' s products, it is scented but very lightly. You can't even detect the scent if you are not observant enough. I happened to lick it off my lips once, hm... not much of a taste here, which is jolly well fine (its not like we are eating lip balms as a main course anyway).

Hm... well, i like it.

It gives me a light pink sheen on my lips and it does its jobs well ,way better than the dozens that i have tried ( i used to be a lippie collector and area of specialisation is lip balms : )).

I say, it deserves a place in my HG stash. : )
