I picked up this lipbalm in my early days in Singapore out of desperation. I had been having some bad skin days which resulted in my lips being very dry, peely and cracked (with bleeding too). I swear, there were some days when I felt more reptilian than human!
First off, I do like the tube design of this lipbalm because I find it easier to tote around and I’m less likely to lose it in my bags compared to say, a slim stick design. Not to mention that the tube design allows me to squeeze out what I need to use at a time.
It does feel a bit oily when I slather copious amounts of this lip balm onto my lips and on the sides of my mouth. But that’s not for long as the feeling soon fades and it feels comfortable on my lips. I’m not the best candidate to tell you about its lasting power as my uber dry lips require me to reapply every now and then, especially after meals.
If you like your lipbalms scented and flavoured, this one is not for you because it is scentless and flavourless, which is a plus point for me because the chances of allergic reactions to this product are greatly reduced. The best thing I can say about this lipbalm is that it does not aggravate my sensitive skin, which is saying a lot because some other types/brands of lipbalms I’ve tried have aggravated the peeling condition, rather than helping it.
I’d definitely keep this lipbalm around because it does the trick in a pinch, but it doesn’t quite achieve Holy Grail status for me.
