Lush Lip Service
Advantages: Leaves the lips feeling soft and smooth
Disadvantages: The consistency is quite hard
When on holidays in San Francisco recently I lost my lip balm and as the sun was drying my lips I set off to find a new one. I was more than a little bit excited to find a Lush in the streets of San Francisco and I quickly snapped up the Lip Service Lip Balm.
What does the product do?
The product promises to use natural ingredients to hydrate the skin on the lips and to lock this moisture into the lips. It moisturises the lips using Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Olive oil and apricot oil. It contains Marigold which acts as an antibacterial substance on the lips and it helps to keep the skin on the lips protected.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be used in the same way as any other lip balm. You apply the product to lips that are clean and dry. You smooth your finger over the surface of the balm and then smooth the product onto the lips. It can be reapplied as often as necessary. It can also be used on dry knees, elbows, cuticles and knuckles.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a small circular metal pot. It is largely plain other than a black sticker which shows the name of the product. The balm costs around £5 and it can be bought from your local Lush store and also from the website. Other lip balms are available if this doesn't quite suit your knees including a chocolate one and a bubblegum one.
Aroma and Consistency
The product smells just like oranges which is no surprise really as it contains real tangerine juice. It's sweet as pleasant and unless you really don't like tangerines, you should get along with it. It is evident as you apply the product and stays on the lips for a while. The balm has quite a hard consistency which surprised me as it was described as being rich and creamy.
It is quite hard to get this product out of the pot and I struggled with this to begin with. However, I found that if I held the tin in a hand for a few minutes before I use it, then the product begins to soften and this is probably because many of the ingredients melt at body temperature. This was a lot easier to do in a sunny country but it takes a bit longer at home. When it has been warmed slightly, it is simple to apply to the lips. It feels completely comfortable and hasn't caused me any irritations.
This product does make my lips really soft and smooth, and this increases with continuous use. It appears fairly matte on the lips so it's good for those who don't want to change the appearance of their lips which makes this one good for boys too. It seems to heal the lips too, and if my lips have been chapped or flaky, then this manages to sort them out. It lasts a while on the lips however reapplication is required, especially when eating and drinking. It is very hydrating and it does taste quite nice too!!
This is a good lip balm which hydrates the lips and leaves them feeling soft and smooth. It can be a nuisance to apply and you need to warm the balm if you want to use it effectively but it does a good job. I would repurchase the product but I haven't even made a dent in it yet so I don't anticipate that being anytime soon. I'm knocking a star off for the consistency but other than that, it's all good!!
