I was sent the Simple Intensive Lip Moisturiser and Essential lip balm with SPF 15 to review.
I really really want to say moist lips at this point...I am sorry I am so childish but I keep thinking it as I am writing this haha! Anway now that's over and done with lets move on to the grown up review.
The intensive lip moisturiser is the one in the tube, it has a thicker, non sticky consistency which nourishes and soothes and locks in moisture for some reason this reminds me of the Norwegian formula Neutrogena hand cream, it's that sort of consistency. The balm is clear.
This is good to use at bedtime to ensure silky soft lips when you wake up in the morning and it contains pro vitamin B5 which restores and softens the lips and glycerin to hydrate and nourish. This is a great product as it has no scent or taste so would appeal to anyone and the tube is small enough to slip in your pocked or keep on your bedside table. It is dermatalogically tested and 10ml costs £
Overall - I am not too keen simply because it is thicker so isn't easy to slap on all day at work and my hair got stuck to it when I used it during the day. It is a positive review as it is a good product, I just don't feel it personally meets what I want from a moisturising lip treatment.
The essential lip balm SPF 15 on the other hand is brilliant! I love this and it's perfect for use during the day to protect your lips from the sun. It comes in stick format which you can apply quickly and without a mirror and like the other lip treatment it is neither scented or coloured or has any taste. It also contains pro vitamin B5 but isn't as thick so is much better suited to regular application on a hot day or and it is easy to apply frequently. It contains shea butter which is well known for it's excellent moisturising qualities. Well worth the price and I would definitely recommend this for anyone, but it would be extra handy for those who are going on holiday, to festivals or like to spend a lot of time outside due to the SPF and the fact it has no taste. Love it!
Please note that there is also a SPF20 sun lip protection lipbalm, but since I haven't tried this I don't know if it's the same formula.
Depending on the different shop these lipbalms cost around £3 which I think is definitely a good reason to pick up the SPF version, remember your lips need sun protection too!
What's your favourite lipbalm brand?
