Review of Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm by 1017
UPDATE : IMO Quenched is the main reason I love this line. I love the simple gloss with SPF it delivers. Perfect for easy breezy summer days. The other shades are hit and miss depending on your skin tone. But nothing beats the texture & soothing of Quenched. These do not have lanolin or beeswax in them, so A+ for anyone with those issues. I don't care about the cutesy packaging (kind of surprised how many people comment with love and hate for the packaging...it's completely irrelevant to me. My praise comes from a non-irritating ingredient list & cheap, easy, soothing product itself.
ORIGINAL POST: I have the clear basic Quenched (no color, just a soft glisten to the lips, smells fruity w/SPF). I am quite happy. I have been dealing with major lip issues (allergic reaction or fungal or really dry lips TBD). But they are slowly on the mend. This is the FIRST lip product I have been able to use in 6 months that is portable (I use jojoba oil and Aquaphor at home) and makes my lips look supple again. It doesn't sink into my dry creases. It leaves a glossy sheen across the lips, not sinking in to the lips. Yet it is not the goopy mess that a lip gloss can be...it is much more like a great lipstick sans color. The plain Quenched is hands down my favorite. For the first time in 6 months my lips look soft, supple and polished. Now, I am not saying this cured my lips...they were looking up on their own. But they would still look bad under lipsticks (if I could find one that doesn't irritate me) after a while. With the Baby Lips I feel like I have my old lips back!
