France: L’Occitane, Lip balm


I give this lip balm 5/5 thumbs up. I love it!

This lip balm by L’Occitane its from their Christmas collection from 2015. I am not sure if this was a special formulation for Christmas or it is similar to the other scented ones the brand has. My guess, based on the description in the back of this packaging, is that most likely is this one: Karité Ultra Riche Lippenbalsam, but with Christmas packaging. The packaging is practical, compact, easy to use. I did not like the dispenser so much at first, but with time I got used to it, and I think it works well with this formula.

The balm is a very thick emollient and protective formulation. It is great for cold weather, or maybe even windy conditions. It leaves a thick but comfortable protective layer on your lips, helping them keep their moisture in and against the weather. Also, a big plus is that the formula is so thick and emollient that you need very little of it, therefore the tube might see normal size but it lasts a really long time.

I would recommend this product if you suffer from really dry lips, if you live in very cold and weather, or if you travel a lot by plane, or are going on a long haul flight.

Would I buy this again? Yes! Already wrote it down on my shopping list. I can’t wait to see the holiday collection for this year!
