[unpaid/affiliate/sample/ad] I have been waiting for what feels like weeks to get this post up – one of the nicest lip balms I’ve ever used. It seems that stock was delayed (this brand has had plenty of coverage across social media) so everyone wanted it but nobody could get it!
Although I am biased towards lip balms because I use them so much, this is the one that is currently sitting by my desk that I’m dipping into daily. I featured ClinicBe Be Juicy which is more of a glossy conditioner earlier in the week and have that on hand for more shine, but Biossance is the daily work horse at the moment.
Although it’s a castor oil base, the addition of squalane (a hydrating lipid taken in this instance from renewable sugar cane) and hyaluronic acid takes it to a formula that’s punching high. It’s absolutely got the feel of a luxury balm. I’m a massive fan of Sisley lip balm which is roughly £50 a pot (and I do buy it) but I’d say that Biossance isn’t so far away from the same feel and effect but is £16. So, in that context, it’s representing great value for me although I quite see the point that you can buy a pot of Vaseline for £1. It’s a happy find for anyone with dry or creased lips although I think it’s time to invest in a lip brush to stop dipping fingers into the pot. I use sanitizer often enough that I do feel safe to dip, but I’m conscious of it in a way I wasn’t pre Covid. You can use an old gloss wand if you have one around which might be more practical because of the doe’s foot shape which holds to the lips so nicely.
