There’s a new favorite lip product in town: Kiehl’s Eucalyptus Lip Treatment. I think that at this point it’s pretty much safe to say that I’m a lip treatment/balm hoarder.Kiehl’s Eucalyptus Lip Treatment is a great balm for those whose lips (like mine) are almost continually dehydrated and chapped. Unlike many other products of similar nature, this has a very unique formula that is not waxy. If there is one thing that I really don’t like, is when lip balms leave lots of waxy, heavy residue on my lips, which also makes lipstick application a pain. I was very surprised to see that even thought this absorbed very quickly, I could feel it working for a few hours, which I think is amazing. It brings instant relief to dehydrated and chapped lips leaving them feeling very soft and smooth.
This is what Kiehl’s say about their product: “Our no-shine lip treatment soothes dehydrated, parched lips. Formulated with restorative Eucalyptus, ultra-hydrating Cactus Flower, and invigorating Tibetan Ginseng, this cooling, protective balm helps to mend cracking lips and maintain healthy moisture in-flight or any time.“
I absolutely love the smell of Eucalyptus, and this treatment has just a very subtle hint of Eucalyptus scent that is very fresh and soothing. I’ve also grown addicted to the minty, tingling sensation that I feel on my lips each time I apply this treatment. The cooling effect disappears after a few minutes, but it definitely brings relief to dry and chapped lips. Due to its no-shine formula, this product can be also used by men. I think that during this time of the year, we all need a little extra loving in terms of skincare ;). Last but not least, the packaging is great, even though I don’t always like lip treatments that have to be applied using fingers, in this case the product is actually in a tube and isn’t exposed each time I open it, so I think I can live with that :) . Next time I travel, you definitely won’t catch me without my Kiehl’s Eucalyptus Lip Treatment in my bag. I give it an A+!
