Finding good lip care can be hard to come by. Our lips are extremely important to us too. Cracked, dry lips can be painful, but they’re extremely common during the harsh winter months. Often times we overlook our lips simply because they’re the last thing on our minds. There are numerous products out on the market today that help keep lips fresh and smooth. However, there are also products that don’t stand up to the task and instead deliver very little moisture or hydration. Some products are also extremely expensive and have bells and whistles, such as collagen, that aren’t really needed in a lip balm.
Personally, I suffer from dry and chapped lips, especially during the harsh winter months in the Midwest. The cold, harsh air comes in contact my lips and they start to look cracked and unhealthy. They also begin to become really painful. Needless to say, it’s not very pretty (having dry and cracked lips), nor does it help my look or style. It makes applying lip plumper, lipstick, and lip gloss extremely difficult and painful as well. But to me, my lips are one of the most important things to me. When they’re healthy and at their best they look beautiful and stunning, especially with a layer of lip plumper. But I need help from a product or two.
One of my favorite brands that I love to review is La Mer. La Mer offers a wide variety of high-end products that really deliver all they promise. While browsing the La Mer website, I came across their face products. I’ve used a number of these products before with great results, so when I stumbled across the La Mer The Lip Balm, I immediately knew I had to get it. For $45, I purchased 0.32 oz. jar directly from the La Mer website.
When I received the La Mer The Lip Balm, I was immediately excited to use it. In order to apply, you need to warm the balm between your fingertips and apply with a light patting motion on your lips. You can apply it above and below the lips too in case your skin is chapped there too. What’s great is that I found you can apply lip color over the La Mer The Lip Balm. Just wait a few minutes to do so. La Mer also says if you apply it regularly, your lips are protected all day.
Immediately upon applying, my lips felt amazing. The balm is very creamy and moisturizing and left my lips feeling smooth all day, even when I only applied twice a day. I even applied the La Mer The Lip Balm at night and woke up with smooth lips. The feeling also isn’t heavy or waxy at all either. It works extremely well in the winter months and I found that applying three times a day during the winter keeps my lips hydrated and soft all day.
Overall, I would rate the La Mer The Lip Balm a 4.5/5. It absolutely works…100 percent. The only downside is the price. For a 0.32 oz. jar for $45, it’s a little steep. However, the product is amazing and the brand is La Mer, so you know you’re getting quality. Also, La Mer stands behind all its products 100 percent, so you know if the the La Mer The Lip Balm doesn’t work, you can get your money back.
