I bought this recently on a shopping trip to CVS. I keep seeing advertisements for it, and figured, why not? Its not terribly expensive, and they claim to help make your lips softer, so sure! Lets try it.
The packaging is cute, tells all the claims they make for this lip balm. Its SPF 20 so it can help prevent sunburn on your lips (which I've had before, it hurts). It says it gives 8 hours of moisture, and is a peppermint scent.
The balm itself is white/clear, so it leaves no color on your lips, but makes your lips look moisturized, and maybe even a tad glossy - which is a look I like. I like a natural lip with a clear gloss of sorts, looks good on almost anyone.
Its not too peppermint-y. I have a lip balm from Ulta that is really, really peppermint-y and this isn't even close, and I like that.
Here are some before, and after pics. Before there was nothing on my lips at all. And the after is after I applied. Immediately you can see a difference.
I don't know why, but whenever I have a glossy looking lip my cheeks look rosy LOL
Do I think its worth it? I would say yes. There are many colors/scents to choose from, and they aren't very expensive. There are usually coupons online or in the Sunday paper (which I used for this purchase). As far as 8 hours of moisture, we shall see. I haven't had it on 8 hours yet... I can tell you that I doubt it will stay on my lips that long. Between eating and drinking, it will most likely wear off, but I'll give the benefit of the doubt - hopefully it soaks into my lips and keeps them soft.
What do you think? Have you tried this yet?
