Although, I think, my favourite lip balms are liquid, like this Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Elixir which I adore, I still like a good ol’ lip balm.
But it has to be very soft and moisturizing, I hate dry and hard lip balms! When I think of a good one, Fresh Sugar comes to mind, as it is soft, as butter!
And today I want to tell you about L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm. And it is actually a nice one. I have been carrying (and using, obviously) it in my bag for several weeks now.
Luckily, my lips are in a (relatively, they are still dry) good condition now, so I can’t report on how it deals with the cracks/very dried out lips.
But I can definitely see that it does sooth, moisturize and nourish the lips without feeling sticky or greasy. I’d say that it looks natural on the lips, without that glossy effect that some people don’t like. The balm doesn’t have a strong scent (it actually reminds me of the balms I used as kid) and I also like the clean design.
I think that for £7.50/$10 it is a lovely product to get and I will probably re-purchase it at some point, or maybe try other L’Occitane balms.
