And The Best Lip Balm Award Goes To …

DSCN8822

As if winter is not hard enough to deal with, chapped lips are a sadly regular occurrence during this time of year. Chapped lips are something I haven’t been able to treat properly: Nuxe Rêve de Miel, By Terry Baume de Rose and La Mer Lip Balm all failed one after the other – have a guess how desperate I must’ve felt. Sisley however has put an end to my – what seemed to me – endless sufferings. Goodbye chapped, flaky and painful lips – you’ve now become long forgotten history.

The fact that this is my second tub of Sisley’s Nutritive Lip Balm proves how much I love it, to the point I literally run back home to get this beloved jar of goodness – and let’s not forget how lazy I am. What at first seemed like a big – and expensive – disappointment, has now become the one thing I can’t see myself without. An expensive pot filled with vaseline were my very first thoughts. It feels dry and so uncomfortable were my second thoughts. But darn was I wrong. Yes, it looks a whole lot like vaseline but it doesn’t slip and slide all over your face, and it doesn’t contain mineral oils but plant-based oils and shea butter instead. The consistency is quite firm at first, which makes it hard to spread the products over your lips but that’s just a beginner’s thing – thank goodness.

Despite the price tag, it’s just pure love. Last week I used my La Mer Lip Balm and By Terry Baume de Rose interchangeably, because well, I was left with an empty pink jar. If you suffer from painful chapped lips as I do, Sisley will sooth them upon first application. The emollient texture makes sure your lips receive the right levels of hydration whilst smoothing the surface, and get yourself ready to wave those flaky bits goodbye. And probably the best price tag justification: it stays on the lips for a long time, meaning a whole afternoon without the urge of constant reapplication. The point is: it’s amazing.

Whilst a lip balm with such a price tag might not be everyone’s cuppa tea. It’s a worthy investment in case you suffer from extremely dry and chapped lips as I do. It’s the only thing that has been able to put an end to my awful lips. I’d love to find a great lip balm in stick form though – for more hygienic reasons – so any recommendations are welcome! But for now, I’m settled with this new jar of lushness.

    I’ll have to put this on my list! Have you tried the Bite lip mask? I think it works really well for me – more affordable that by terry and la mer, and perhaps even better??

      No, I haven’t. It’s not easy for me to get my hands on Bite products – UNFORTUNATELY. If it works for you then I wouldn’t necessarily spend money on this one, unless you’re very curious and beauty aficionado :D I would love to try out that Bite Lip Mask though …! X

        Hehe, I realized I have a weird addiction to lip balms. I have so many unopened ones! o.O I probably wouldn’t buy it unless i finished a ton of them haha

    Oh dammit, now I need a pot of this LOL My absolute fav for the moment is the one from Omorovicza, but a little Sisley probably couldn’t hurt!

    • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      So far, it’s really the only product that works on my lips. How does the Omorovicza lip balm work out for you? You should really try the Sisley one if you can swallow the price tag! ;)

        The Omorovicza one is great! It’s supposed to be plumping but that’s not why I love it. It repairs all the little cuts I have on my lips better than other balms :)

        • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

          Well at least you have one that works! I’m a bit hesitant to try out new lip balms at the moment if they are as expensive as the one from Sisley. I do have to say that I’m loving the Clarins Lip Oil as well, maybe not as effective but great nonetheless. Just got it, still needs some more testing! :D X

            Oh keep me posted! I am curious about that one, but I don’t think it’s the type of texture/packaging I’d reach for often.

            I will! X

    It’s better than Baume de Rose?! *wishlisted*

    • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Baume de Rose unfortunately didn’t work on me. I’ve tried really hard to like it though :( X

    This lip balm is soooo luxe, Alice! It really sounds incredible.

      I’m glad to have found one that actually works on me – I was pretty desperate, lol. X
