As someone who has always carried 10 lipsticks/glosses/balms in my purse most of my life (yet always seem to have bare lips when I’m in public due to it wearing off!!) I know what I like and what works for me but the last 6 or so years I have developed a sensitivity to almost all lip products. The only ones I’ve found in that time that do not cause my lips to feel unbearably dry and quickly begin to peel are revlon gloss and Mary Kay lip balm (clear). Those work fine but I needed something that would also rejuvenate my lips since I’m 48 and they are beginning to turn inward slightly. (Old age isn’t all the rage you expect.... 😏) So I know there’s a big aversion for most about sticky lip products but those are usually the only ones I could ever get to last and now they are a necessity to stop the dryness from setting in. This product is what I consider sticky. It is clear and has a strange applicator tip that is a hard plastic but somehow is cooling and infuses the gloss with mint. It’s kind of magical to me. But this does seem to be replumping my lips a little bit and making the top outline a bit more defined. I’ve only had it two weeks but I apply it at least 4 times a day including before bed and when I wake up before brushing my teeth to protect my lips from toothpaste which I read may be the reason for my lip sensitivity. I know it’s pricy but I am thinking after the first tube I will use it a little more sparingly and if I can make it last two months I’d say it’s worth every penny for me.
