Product Description (taken from Clinique.com):

INSTANT 8H MOISTURE
Shed away rough dryness for supple, smooth and cushioned lips all day long.

IN ONE WEEK WEEK REJUVENATES LIPS
It's proven: Centella Essence increases cell turnover to literally transform your lips:

  • Fine lines reduced 
  • Elasticity increased 
  • Suppleness increased


Ingredients:



Texture & Taste:


This lipbalm is a little softer than the usual lipbalms, but surprisingly it doesn't have the typical oiliness that comes with softer lipbalms! :)

This product has a yummy scent that really reminds me of the Cranberry Lipbalm from The Body Shop! I like how this doesn't have a terrible taste too! :D

This is how it looks on my lips (goes on clear):




Packaging:


This lipbalm comes in your typical twist up tube with a cap. You get slightly more than 3.5 inches of product in each tube:



This comes in a cardboard / plastic package to ensure freshness! :)


Price & Availability:
This lipbalm is priced at RM9.80 and it goes on sale often too! :) This is available locally at all Watsons / Guardian / Caring pharmacies.


My $0.02:

I purchased right before my Similan Island diving trip when I realised that I had forgotten to bring a lipbalm with SPF to protect my lips from the Andaman sun. Turns out that I didn't even remember to use this one during that trip - it remained brand new untouched until my recent beach holiday again! Haha! :D

This does everything a lipbalm does! It does a wonderful job at keeping my lips protected from sunburn and it moisturizes beautifully too! Can't complain about the super yummy scent and the price either! :D

I honestly can't fault this lipbalm in anyway at all and methinks that this is really a drugstore gem! Will be repurchasing for sure! :D

  1. I'm on my second tube. I love the mango pie scent. Yummy :) It's actually the first lip balm i ever finished. They also come with tinted versions of it. But i prefer the basic ones. :)

  2. Long time reader but first time commenting on your blog!
    Somehow I don't really fancy the aftertaste of the balm, it comes across as a little strange and chemically to me. Think its the spf.
    But Babylips do moisturize very well, and is cheap and readily available :)
    I prefer my Badger Balms!
