Aw man, I broke my every day posting streak :( Unfortunately, I’m sick yet again. I’ve noticed that the stress from school in the last two years has caused me to get sick more times than I have in my entire life. I used to only get sick once a year, around winter when all the colds were going around but lately it’s like get sick for a couple weeks, recover for a week and uh oh I’m sick again. It’s no fun.
Anyways, sucky immune system rant over. When La Roche-Posay was having a sale a month/couple months ago, I picked up a backup Ceralip. Then I thought, why not try their other lip stuff. Nutritic Lips is said to be for ‘very dry lips.’ Yup, thought I. That sounds like me.
When I opened this a month ago, my first thought was that it looked suspiciously like a rather disappointing lipbalm in my history of lipbalms. Luckily, this applied nothing like that. Nutritic Lips comes in a twist up tube. It’s scentless, tasteless, and colorless.
After using it for about a month (maybe more, my memory isn’t the most reliable thing), I came to these conclusions:
-It’s very moisturizing, I’d say about the same as my Therapind balm, and the same goes for lasting power.
-The texture is ‘slippery.’ The texture isn’t very soft so the balm probably won’t melt, but it still applies very easily since the top layer melts on contact.
-Unlike Ceralip, it doesn’t heal my lips. It’s great for keeping my lips in good condition if they’re already in good condition, but if my lips are flaky and dry it’s not going to help out.
Here’s the thing. With the coupon, this was $7. The regular price is $12. That’s 4 Therapinds, which perform exactly the same and probably do more in the healing department. It’s a good lip balm, but am I willing to part with that much money for one tube? Er, no.
