Sephora's Super Nourishing Lip Balm



  Today is Wednesday lip pick! Every Wednesday for the month of January I will be reviewing  different types of lip balms in order to find a great balm for the dry winter months and quite possibly year round. Today I have decided to review Sephora's Super Nourishing Lip Balm which contains shea butter, grape seed oil, vitamin E, meadowfoam seed oil and beeswax.I was first recommended to try out this product by a Sephora employee who informed me that a lot of girls had been purchasing the product after it was mentioned on a talk show. Although she informed me that she had not used the product herself, I decided to give the product a try. Besides the price of $6.00 was very appealing.  


  When I first opened the lip balm, I noticed that it was shaped similar to a lipstick. I found this to be a benefit since the product can be evenly applied to ones lips and you don't even have to worry about getting your fingers covered in the product like some balms. I also really like that the lip balm smells so good- similar to vanilla. Although vanilla scented products may not be for everyone, I am huge fan of this scent. Its a warm and a yummy scent for the winter. 

  Even though the scent is great, and the product applies nicely to my lips, I don't find that the staying product is very good. When I use this balm on my lips, I find that it does feel hydrating initially; however, my lips often feel dry an hour or so after applying the product on to my lips. To be honest, I was really disappointed that this lip balm did not work well for me, as I hoping that it would become my new favorite lip balm to wear this winter. Womp!

  Thus, stay tuned for next Wednesday as the search for a great lip balm continues. Hopefully after trying out a few more products, I will find a great lip balm.  

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. If you have tried Sephora's Super Nourishing Lip Balm, did it work well for you?
