Yes, like royalty...for a rather royal price. For the cute tin and the magical substance inside, I'd pay the price every winter.
When many people think of heavy-duty lip balms, they think medicinal. Boring. In a tube. Chalky-tasting. This is where a few bucks makes a difference.
Lip Service comes in a small, round tin that opens easily and closes securely. The product itself lasts, for me, through a good six months. Not bad, compared to drugstore balms! The texture is a little odd; it's very thick and white and sort of like butter from the fridge. If it's cold, it won't be spreadable. So keep in your pocket or on your cable box or blast it with a hair-dryer for about five seconds, even. Then it's like melty, creamy butter that tastes faintly of fresh honey and sweet oranges.
I enjoy that Lip Service's taste doesn't morph into something sweet and sickly by morning, even though the moisturizing-power stays with you all night. Nothing else has calmed my chapped, sore lips during this cold and dry weather.
The price might be a bit steep, and you do have to warm it up in your hand or pocket to really get good use out of it, but for its intensive healing properties, nothing can beat it in my book.
LUSH also sells several others, including balms for shine, cocoa butter-free balms for those allergic, and delicious, honey or chocolate flavoured balms.
