Been using Aesop's Rosehip Seed Lip Cream since February, and I wonder why I didn't buy some lip cream sooner instead of relying solely on lip balm all my life. Since I started using it, I've had very little problems with chapped lips and I use lip balm less frequently now, just once every few days. Because the Aesop packaging isn't designed to be carried around (crush it in your bag and all the cream comes spilling out the next time you open the tube), I usually use it at night before I sleep, and on my 12-hour flight to Frankfurt it was a godsend - I didn't get off feeling like the skin was about to crack off my lips. It smells lovely and absorbs easily, and it's one of those moments when you feel that a beauty product is actually doing something for you.
I don't know how the Aesop cream compares to other products in the market since it was the first time I'd ever tried such a product. I also wonder if conventional moisturiser for the face would work as well...do we need specially formulated cream for lips (Philosophy has one that's for eyes AND lips. Hmm.)? In any case, I'm quite glad to move away from lip balms which I never enjoyed using.
Does anyone use lip creams or treatments? What do you guys think?
Yep, random rave over. Back to work.
