I've probably mentioned this product on the blog before but I wanted to share it with you today because I believe in sharing the products that have stood the test of time. Rather than showing you what's new all the time, it's a truer indication of how much I love a product based on the fact that I've been using something for 5 years.
This is that product. I have about 4 of these Clarins lip balms scattered around various handbags; I am literally scared to be without it. It is the most intensely nourishing and hydrating lip balm without being sticky. It gives the lips a perfect polished look and enhances your natural lip colour. I always love the way my lips look when I have this on. It contains rose wax, which if you are comparing it to By Terry's Baume de Rose makes it a more attractive price point.
I took this up the mountain in the snow with me recently and used it at lunch time and at the end of the day to soften and soothe my lips. I always use a lip product with SPF while I'm skiing as the Sun's rays reflect off the snow and can seriously burn. I use SPF30+, however it's nice to have a better tasting balm to apply when you are not directly in the sun, SPF have a tendency to taste horrible.
You may remember a while back Lupita Nyongo'o famously used this balm at the Oscars and it sold out worldwide pretty quickly!
I have repurchased this balm time and time again and have recommended it to friends who have bought it and loved it too. I can't remember the exact cost now but it is about $36 I think.
Have you tried this lip balm before? Are you as obsessed as me?
Until my next post,
