Yeah! My first suggestion has been accepted and it is this!
Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm is a soothing lip balm which contains essential rose wax. Clarins say "a lip care 'must have' for immediate comfort. Soothes away rough, chapped lips with its intensive repair action. Hydrates, protects and plumps lips with its Maxi lip Complex.
The lip balm comes in blue tube with a white screw on lid with the normal Clarins gold band around it. The front of the tube has the Clarins name and logo and the name of the product in English and in French (Clarins is a French company). The back of the tube tells us that the lip balm is allergy tested, there is the company details and the size of the lip balm.
The lipbalm comes in a white and blue box with ingredients etc.
The tube has a slanted applicator tip. To use, simply squeeze the tube lightly and smear directly onto lips or use your finger/brush to apply. This can be applied any time of the day.
The main active ingredients in the lipbalm are :
Essential Rose Wax - comforts and protects
Ceramide 3 - hydrates and repairs
Shea Butter - free radical protection, soothing
Rice Oil Extract - soothes and nourishes
Maxi Lip Complex - boosts collagen, plumps and smoothes lines.
*Availability and Price*
Clarins is a high end beauty brand and very expensive. Clarins have a website www.clarins.com which sells all their products. Department stores such as Debenhams, Frasers, John Lewis and larger Boots stores may have a Clarins counter. The specialist who works behind the counter can offer advice on products to suit your needs and skin. Look out for special offers such as buy 2 products and pick 4 travel size products from a range of 10 for example. The lip balm retails at around £16 but this will vary from store to store. You can also purchase this on ebay a little bit cheaper. The balm only comes in a 15ml tube.
I suffer from very dry lips and I am always on the lookout for something to hydrate them and give them a little shine! Whilst browsing the Clarins counter in Frasers last summer, the Clarins girl asked if I needed any assistance. I am suprised though as normally I get followed by security..I wear trackie bottoms and push a buggy! I wasn't quite sure what I was looking for but mentioned my dry lips and this was the first product recommended to me.
I was given a small amount to test and could feel instant hydration in my lips. I decided to buy this at the pricely sum of £16 alongside a Cleansing Milk and received a choice of 4 travel sized products for free which made it not so bad to part with my cash! At the time I felt £16 was alot to spend on a lip balm but being Clarins I thought I would give it a shot. The box is typical Clarins, fairly basic compared to the likes of Estee Lauder and Lancome but this didn't concern me. The tube is nice and the gloss is easy to apply. At first, my lips felt a little sticky but this soon subsided and I was left with a gentle gloss and hydrated lips. I use a small amount of this balm daily, before I go out and once during the day. If I don't use it I can feel my lips becoming very sore and irritated but once the balm is applied, they feel soothed and calm. The balm doesn't have a distinctive taste to be honest, its just balm! I recommended this to my sister who uses daily and she occasionally gets sores around the side of her lips and this works wonders to speed up the healing process so not just for lips!
Would I recommend? Yes I would! The initial £16 outlay is small compared to the quality and moisturising that your receive. This can double up as a gloss so you do not need to apply anything else. I have been using twice daily for around 7months now and there is still lots left in the tube. The tube is good to be opened for 18months so will still be fresh. Go on, treat yourself!
Summary: NO NEED FOR ANOTHER GLOSS
