Personal Experience: There’s a lot of moisturising properties in this lip balm, such as Jojoba oil, vitamin E and Olive squalene and shea butter.
It was a challenge as the only lip balm that works for me is kiehl’s #1. Without kiehl’s my lips is chapped flaky and dry, using any other products my lips will dry within 10 minutes. Using this every single day, I notice it condition my lips very well, in total I would reapply for 3-4 times a day.
The product line has two colour choices I was afraid to try the bright purple colour as I like my lips to look natural during the day. So I choose soft peach colour, on application it instantly smoothes my lips and surprisingly no tint of colour as it shows up clear. It smells quite sweet, must be the apricot the applicator comes with a sponge tip and is easy to apply on the lips.
It makes a fantastic primer for lipstick, I have notice near the end of my trial the lips will chapped, but overall I’m really satisfied with the lip balm.

moisturise and makes lips soft

Would I re-purchase again? Maybe, besides kiehl’s this lip balm is pretty decent, you will get instant soft smackers, and smells very good too.
