I was recommended this product by a friend, who was trying to stop me from using vaseline on my lips, using the argument that it is better to have a lip product without parabens (a type of chemical used in a lot of cosmetics and beauty products as a preservative and are quite controversial). She also thought it would be better for me to try and repair my always dry lips instead of just slathering on more petroleum. She had a point!
Anyway, I gave in grudgingly as I have always loved vaseline and have been using it since I was a teenager. However, once I started using this product, I would never go back. It feels really good as soon as you put it on - like a really great hand or body lotion that you know is actually moisturising your skin. It has added Vitamin E which I guess is one of the reasons it feels so rich and creamy. I am outdoors a lot in all kinds of weather, and this lip balm has been fantastic. It last a long time (not as long as a pot of vaseline), but long enough to warrant the cost of it. I also find that over the few months I have been using it, that my lips aren't as dry as they used to be and I don't have to apply it so much. I feel that it is properly doing its job of repairing.
Having looked at the product in more detail for this review, it is not suitable for vegans and also should not be used if you have a nut allergy. However, it does not contain dairy, alcohol, sugar, lanoline, wheat, fragrance or titanium dioxide.
If you have dry lips and want to repair and not just gloss over the cracks, then I would recommend this product. I wouldn't be without it now and always order a number of tubes, so that I never run out.
