While freaking out at Sasa during my Macau trip back in October, I impulsively put random products into my basket if they were a brand or asian product I've always wanted to try.
The Kiehls Lip Balm was one of them.
Costed me 80 patacas (around $11 AUD).
I was actually having a hard time choosing whether to buy it or not, I mean $11 for a lip balm?! I couldve bought around 3 EOS lipbalms instead of this!
Though the brand Kiehls I've always wanted to try, so I forced myself to try it out.
I've never seen a lipbalm that contains SPF 4 and with a quick internet research I found that SPF 4 blocks 75% of UVB rays! But not as much as some other lipbalms with SPF 20+, better than nothing though
The product is stored in a plastic white tube and disperses out from a flat hole, exactly like the Lucas Papaw Ointment.
I've used quite a lot of lipbalms in the past and this product was just an average product for me. It did a decent job at moisturizing, a little goes a long way and last on the lips for around 30 mins before it soaks in your lips. The product itself isnt liquidly but not gel-like, it melts onto your lips once it meets your lips, a bit like the Natures Care Paw Paw lip balm.
For $11 I wouldn't repurchase this, there are many lipbalms in the market that do a better job at moisturizing.
