Kiehl's Lip Balm


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.

  1. I think my Lucus pawpaw ointment will always be my go to lipbalm cuz the moisture locks in for a while. Would you prefer this one or Lucus pawpaw ointment?

    1. I definitely prefer the Lucas Papaw Ointment! It's so much more versatile and works so well on extremely cracked lips

    1. It's just too overprice for a lipbalm of average quality! It's probably because the lipbalm is made by Kiehls hence the price :(

  3. $11 is quite a bit for a lip balm. I definitely prefer my pawpaw!

    1. What $12?! Yeah so true, I'm not complaining. Oh whoops forgot to write about the scent, it's just unscented, pretty plain!
