* I hope you all have a lovely break over the Christmas period x *
Priced at £37.50, I can safely say this is my most expensive lip balm. To be honest, when I picked this up it was because there was a very good skincare GWP on (this was a while ago before you get excited) which I wanted to give to my Mum. A skincare item was required so I scanned around for one of their more cheaper options and had remembered hearing a few raves about this balm on some of my favourite blogs. It was worth paying over the odds to get the GWP, “a Sprat to catch a mackerel” as my mother would say.
The texture of this is quite firm and it feels really smooth. There is no greasiness or overly slippery feel to it like a lot of balm's suffer from and it has no scent or taste. Its extremely comfortable, even on broken skin. As a result of the thickness it lasts really well.
Here is how it looks in the pot, it does come with a spatula but you can see I have rather ungracefully dunked my finger in it:
However, in terms of results, whilst this is the best potted lip balm I have tried I would not say that the overall effect of the product beats my Malin + Goetz lip moisturiser. I’ve used both as an over night treatment and would say that feel in a similar condition in the morning.
This is a lovely balm but my Malin + Goetz costs £9 so the Sisley will not be a re-buy for me (unless of course I need to qualify for a GWP again).
