This stuff is just great. It is a bit of a slow starter, but once you have used the stick a few times, it starts to thicken up, and moisturises very nicely. Much better than Vaseline, which coats your lips but doesn't give anything back.
I bought this to build up a light natural looking tan colour before my wedding. It did the trick. I applied it in circular motions after my shower each morning, and it didn't smear (bearing in mind I am a total novice). It also left a nice subtle glittery sparkle. It is only a light colour though, as the name suggests. The only real draw-back for me was the smell. It had the usual fake tan biscuit smell, which is a bit off-putting. I couldn't wear it all the time, for that reason. But fine for special occasions. And it does take a few days to build up, so plan in advance (but at least then you can't go too far wrong with the colour!). Foolproof.
This moisturizer made my skin really dry and tight, which is odd as I have pretty oily skin usually. By the end of the day my skin is feeling very mal-nourished; not a nice feeling at all. Also, it does nothing for my sun spots, so all of the pain and none of the gain. I wouldn't buy this again, I get much better results from much cheaper products.
Ooh, I am also going to be contraversial on this one. This was my HG product and desert island must-have for many years. But I am now going cold-turkey and battling against the addiction! I found out that in fact it does not moisturise your lips at all as it does not penetrate, it just sits on top. So I found myself re-applying so constantly as it had no staying power, and ended up with sore spotty over vaselined lips! Honestly, it is a terrible addiction! And it is true that your lips just stop making their own moisture if you use it too much. So there begins the hook. Scary.
Vaseline has been my HG for years. However I recently found out that it doesn't actually penetrate the lips to provide long term moisture, it just sits on the top of your lips. Hence I was re-applying it every few mins in the end! So now looking for something which provides some kind of actual nourishment, so I can re-apply much less. This is actually OK stuff, apart from the fact that it makes your lips look quite white. Which in turn makes you look a bit ill! But the moisurising effect is quite good, and it smells lovely. Unfortunately I will keep on looking for my new HG though...
