Kiehl's Lip Balm #1

Here is another lip product which is new to me. Kiehl's Lip Balm #1, which is sold different places, including Nordstrom. I like that it has Sun Protection Factor 4, in it. Its not much, but its better than nothing.

It temporarily protects and helps to relieve dry, chapped or cracked lips. Great if you are out in the wind where drying effects are even more pronounced.

Apply liberally, so the excess can be absorbed into your lips. I got the regular lip balm, which is unscented, but they also have scented varieties. One of the great things about Kiehl's, is they have been around a LONG time, since 1851. Their customer base seems to be a loyal one. I hope to try one of the scented versions soon.

Primordiale Lip Skin Recharge

Primordiale Lip Skin Recharge, is something new I just found also. It says it is visibly soothing and renewing lip treatment. I hope to try it also very soon and bought some. Will let you know what I think of it after I do.

Here is what Lancome has to say about it,

"Primordiale Lip Skin Recharge
Visibly Smoothing & Renewing Lip Treatment

As the aging process begins, your skin’s cellular activity slows down, resulting in rough and uneven texture, and the appearance of fine lines around the lip contours. From Lancôme, a lip
treatment to visibly smooth and renew the lips, restoring their vitality.

Visibly smooth and renew
Lancôme’s exclusive technology delivers a concentrated formula of botanically pure Vitamin E and Gatuline, a gentle exfoliant that helps reveal smooth lips. Optical diffusers immediately help minimize the appearance of fine lines.

Visible results
Lips are soothed and moisturized for a softer, smoother look.

Appearance of fine lines is reduced.

Ideal primer for lipstick application: Instantly reduces lipstick bleeding and feathering. Lipstick wears more comfortably.

Dermatologist-tested for safety.

So, it sounds really interesting, and like it would be good for your lips.

If you ever try anything you really like and would recommend, let me know too. It could be that there is some great product or even vitamins and minerals that help lips and doesn't cost all that much, etc. Maybe it will cost a lot more though too. Regardless, I think its good to take care of our skin, its the only skin we have.
(for now anyway :) )

Repairwear for Lips by Clinique, Intensive Lip Treatment

My newest favorite in lip care is Clinique's Repairwear, Intensive Lip Treatment

I was very impressed with the benefits of the product, which I will share here with you. It claims its a potent lip treatment that helps repair the look of wrinkles on and around the lips. (notice the careful wording, repair the LOOK of wrinkles.. Which I appreciate that it is honest and doesn't say that it repairs the wrinkle itself) It says it boosts natural collagen production. ( I wonder how it does that, and I will research that and get back to this blog with that information.) It says that repairwear for lips, provides antioxidant protection against the environment. A definite plus.

It encourages use twice daily, and the ladies at the Clinque counter told me they keep it by their bed at night to use it. I thought that was smart to keep it where you will use it most. Its not cheap, its $25.00 for what looks like a tube of lipstick that goes on clear. If it achieves it claims though, it will be worth it.

As always, all Clinique products are allergy tested and fragrance free. (and no, I am not a Clinique representative, but I do like Clinique products among many others.) So far, this is really really nice to wear and apply.

One of the products I hope to try soon is Neosporin Lip Health. They have a day and night product just for the lips. It sounds very interesting.
