I actually had a request to review this product which I’m so grateful for because otherwise I wouldn’t have thought to try it out. I have lip balms I already love (Sisley, Lanolips, Pure Papaya to name a few) so I don’t call many in for review. Turns out that this is something of a hidden treasure.
I’ll say ahead that it’s pricey at £38 HERE and even Lancome list it as one of their ‘luxury’ products. Well, it’s luxurious indeed. It comes out of the tube as a white cream rather than clear so takes a little working into the lip skin, but I’m guessing that’s because it’s part skin care and part balm rather than just a protective layer. It’s a combination of acacia honey, pro-Xylane (prevents moisture loss), rosehip seed oil and Vitamin E (it’s not suitable for vegans as beeswax is a listed ingredient) to make a rich feeling salve. What’s most noticeable is that it doesn’t need reapplying often. Once it’s on, it’s on. In terms of skin feel, it’s creamy before balmy with a high comfort level. Love it.

I’m always a bit hesitant to pay premium for a lip balm. But from your review, it sounds like a better product than say Omorovicza or By Terry’s lip balms. I love a tube over a pot as well. More hygienic.
Thank you for reviewing this. It is something that I had been looking at but the price was a barrier as I didn’t want to buy a dud at that price. Like Alison who posted above I prefer a tube to a pot and now the weather has changed I will be saving my pennies to indulge.
