If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know how I feel about lip balms.
I’m very picky about them. Recently, I’ve discovered that I don’t like a lip balm that’s a cream formula; that would explain why I didn’t get along with the Dior Crème de Rose or the Nuxe Rêve de Miel.
Gel or jellyish formulas, however, I’m good with. That explains why I love the Smith’s Rosebud Lip Salve so much. As much as I say that I’m never going to try another lip balm again, I can’t help it. So here I am.
I picked up the Jack Black Moisture Therapy Lip Balm in “Black Tea and Blackberry” in the Sephora sale. It was a recommendation from Temptalia, who raves about it, but because my lips are so picky, I wasn’t expecting much. Boy, was I wrong.
It’s moisturizing! It doesn’t make my lips flake and peel, and it doesn’t feel like it’s just sitting there greasy on my lips like fried chicken grease! And the smell! I love the smell of tea, so the scent on this one is bang on and so lovely to me.
Plus, it was only $9 for a tube. Compared to the $30 for the Dior one, this one is easier on the wallet AND better on the lips. Love it.
