Balms. In this picture is one lip balm that I can not do without for long, one lip balm that destroyed my lips in not that long, and one lip balm I'm afraid to open because of the lip balm that freaked my lips out.
Nuxe Reve de Miel Baume Levres is the one I can not do long without. It is on my night stand and before going to sleep I slather on a very generous layer which works all not to deliver soft and moisturized lips in the morning.
It works so well well that there is actual product remaining on my lips in a protective layer when I wake up!
The only con for is that the texture is slightly off putting for me. The thickness makes it seems like it won't absorb and it won't work, but it's pretty miraculous how well this works for me. Within the thick product, there are little hard granules. I don't think they are meant for exfoliation, but maybe bits of shea butter or other ingredients that have solidified.
I've not used it yet.
There is the most outrageously luxurious layer of gold leaf resting on top of the product. As you use it, you crush little bits of the golf leaf and get some golden shimmer on your lips. I'm actually a little apprehensive about using it because of my terrible experience with the Julie Hewett. If Camellia oil and extracts are what upset my lips, then Tatcha will also not work for me. I guess it will help me hone down on ingredients not compatible with my skin when I get to use this.
