I'm just awfully lazy today, so yes, this is a lazy post. Sorry, but it's Friday.
Yet another lip product, but this time it's lipbalm. And one that I'm liking a lot. Hello Maxilip!
I picked this up on a whim during one of my drugstore romps and I really like it. I know I said I absolutely love this lipbalm, but there are times when you need a balm that's absolutely transparent (to go under that lipstick). And this one works like a charm.
In fact, this reminds me a lot of this Lip Pure lipbalm. Even the packaging is essentially the same. What's different though, is that Mentholatum claims that this is a "revolutionary anti-ageing lip moisturizer".
Ingredients include ceramide, Maxi-Lip and coenzyme Q10, which they say "is specially formulated to hydrate the lips, reduce signs of aging, increase lip volume and improve the definition of lip lines".
[Ceramide on the outside to lock up moisture, and Maxi-Lip on the inside (the inner yellowy bit) with coenzyme Q10 to delay skin-aging. Righto.]
Big claims, and I wouldn't go as far to say it's made my lips younger. But as far as lipbalm is concerned, it's a pretty darned good one. It's moisturising, it's applies easily and it feels awfully balmy and comfortable on my lips. I don't detect any scent.
I keep this on my dresser to apply every morning before I put on my makeup, and my lips are moisturised and happy by the time I get to lipstick.
It's priced at RM15.90 a tube, which is not the cheapest as drugstore lipbalms go, but still okay by me.
Would I repurchase? Maybe. I have too many lipbalms to decide definitively. But I do really like it.
