Lip Balm #1 by Kiehl’s

:Moderate at $12:

Ten bucks and change for this little wonder:

Now, I've always liked the balm but I'll admit that I only pick up the scented tube here and there.  I posted way back when, little did I know that this balm has healing properties.

My love for Kiehl's doesn't hold a candle to my sister's.  She loves it.  In fact, it may be the longest relationship she's been in.  She's not going to like that joke, but it's not like she can beat me up.  We don't live in the same city.  Plus, I'm about to give her props. 

This past Friday I woke up with a bad case of chapped lips.  How bad?  Ugly bad.

It's rare, but this was my third bout with the pestering condition.  I'm not sure what caused it but my lips were in a lot of pain, and they looked it.  I felt ugly, but I compensated by wearing a really cute outfit.  Before heading out of town to Montreal, in an act of desperation, I ran to Shopper's and picked up some Blistex.
Fastforward a couple hours and I'm in Montreal.  Blistex in tow.  My sister sees me pull out the dark blue tub and gasps.  She then does one of those rolling eye huffs.  Uh oh, I know she's got something to say.  So I wait for it.
"What are you doing?  Is that Blistex?  Don't use Blistex.  It's bad for you.  It's got chemicals.  Stop."

I'm a little stunned.  Her brows are furrowed, she's serious.  I put on my puppy eyes and say, "well, what am I supposed to do...look (points to lips)...gross...".  She gives me another eye roll and says, "not Blistex.  Kiehl's".

Wow, that's it?  Kiehl's.

I attacked her tub, until we got downtown.  Then I bought my own and attacked it. 

That all happened three days ago. 

My chapped lips you ask?  GONE.  My lips are back to their natural colour and are ubersoft.  Like, kiss me now soft.

My tub?  I'm still attacking it. 

Still love it.

  1. I love your short and simple reviews! This sounds amazing. I haven't used any other lip balm besides lucas pawpaw - which, apparently, no one has ever heard of around here. I need myself a tub of this.


Sharing is caring. And remember, love to eat and never stop shopping. Mass consumption is only bad when you don't use your brain. Besos.
