Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1

As much as I use drug store brand varieties for everyday use, I also believe in pampering myself and going for something nicer once in a while. For the past few years, I have been using Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 in Cranberry to moisturize my lips when I go out.  The product is clear and sold in tubes.  What I particularly like about it, other than the mildly sweet cranberry flavour, is that it has a slight gloss and sheen to it without the stickiness and of a lip gloss.  It also contains SPF 4 (though I wonder if that slight bit of sunscreen would even make a difference).  In my opinion, the product is great because the moisture lasts for hours.

The packaging is nice and simple

The only downside is that it is essentially overpriced flavoured petroleum jelly, and ranging from $9-11 per tube, it is not cheap.  It melts on hot summer days, and furthermore, an applicator does not exist so you have to use your fingers to put it on.

I could technically go to the drugstore and buy a vaseline brand lip balm for a fraction of the price, but given a tube can last 3-4 months or more and the fact that I don’t spend too much on my other daily products, I think it is justifiable to treat yourself once in a while.  Plus, even with the cons, the product works really well for dry lips.

In my opinion, having a nice lipbalm can make a bad day just a little bit better. :)
