After all the hype I wanted to give this product a serious go before giving it a review. I have now had this product for over a month and have been using it solidly at work. So here are my thoughts on this raved about product!
There are many positives about this product, for starters that you need very little to cover your lips. Remember that this is an oil product, so it is thicker than your normal lip balm, which I have found that I prefer for work as I am less inclined to bite my lips. While using this I have found that my lips have never really flaked or dried out as they used to.
The scent is not strong and after a few moments I completely forget that this even had a scent to begin with. I have found that there is no shade to this, so wearing this all day everyday isn’t a problem. The packaging on this is amazing, I have dropped it many times on concrete and there isn’t even a ding in it.
The doe foot applicator is soooo soft and thankfully has stayed that way throughout its use. It is a big doe foot, which did take a little bit to get used to, but I think I prefer it this way as its so much easier and quicker to apply.
I have found that I talk and joke around a lot of work, meaning this wears off pretty quickly. Because of this I normally have to re-apply 2-3 times in an 8 hour work day and sometimes I am pushing it out until I feel uncomfortable before reapplying. While there is a lot of product, I feel like I am powering through this pretty well, which is a bit upsetting considering how much these cost.
Thankfully I had a gift card and 10% off when I bought mine and I am really glad that I did that. One problem I had was deciding which one I wanted, I didn’t really want any of the scents that they have available and only really settled for Mint because I knew it would bother me the least. Ideally a bigger shade/ scent range would be available.
Overall I enjoy this product and I am glad that I have it with me while working. I do think how quickly I am going through it does affect my opinion on it a lot as I am unsure if I want to get another one when I finish this one. That being said, that might change when I actually finish it up and see how long it has lasted.
