I admit it, I did buy this product and really do like how it feels on my lips. But I will never repurchase because of how expensive it is. I still use a high end lip balm (MAC) but it's cheaper than this and works better. It has a lemon-y chemical smell. Glides on easily and keeps my lips moisturized but you can definitely find something that will work better at a fraction of the cost.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

First impression of this product - it was great. The best moisturizer I'd ever used because it really did keep my face matte for the entire day. I didn't feel like the grease slick I normally did by 10am. But, sadly, it also broke me out and I started getting cystic acne around my jaw line. I do have acne prone skin but have been acne free (with the exception of the monthly hormones) for about 3 years now with the help of Retin-A. I finally figured out that it was the moisturizer that was causing my breakouts. Might work for others, as it started working for me - but the breakouts just made my skin worse.
This did nothing for my dark circles (and they're not that bad, just a little green tint) or the puffyness. It felt nice putting on the eye area since it was cool and easily absorbed. A little goes a long way and my jar lasted about 2 months. But, nothing to rave about and I won't be repurchasing. Guess the search continues. Packaging isn't great either since it's not very sanitary. I'm not a fan of the jar type of packaging.
Lip Treatments -C.O. Bigelow - My Favorite Night Balm

My first review on MUA and it's on a lip balm? YES! Because it's that good! I've only used it for about a week but I already know this is my go to night time balm. I find that my lips get dry during the day, no matter what kind of balm i was using. Now, I put this on at night and all day the next day my lips are smooth and soft. I love it! I've already recommended this to a few of my friends!
