This lip balm is packed with beneficial ingredients to help protect your lips from harmful UV rays as well as repair damage brought about by the elements. This balm contains both artificial and natural ingredients to deliver the most effective product for your lips. Some of the ingredients included are jojoba seed oil, castor seed oil, and sunflower seed oil to maximize health benefits.
This balm uses a base of candelilla wax and carnauba wax which makes the balm rather hard. It does still spread on your lips, but it is not a soft lip balm. There are some exfoliating elements mixed into this wax to help relieve your lips of dead skin cells, but they should not be noticed when applying.
As far as reception goes, Aesop products are usually a very trusted brand. This lip balm has everything you need to protect your lips, and it even goes so far as to include sunscreen to help fight off UVA/UVB rays. The few reviews say that this balm is actually rather hard, and doesn’t have the same creamy consistency as other balms do. It doesn’t melt in the sun, and it doesn’t leak in your pocket, which is good. However, spreading it on your lips may feel as though you aren’t getting any on at all.
At $20, it’s an expensive lip balm to try, but if you’re already a fan of Aesop products, this could be worth your money.
