Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1

Wind, sun, dehydration and beverages are not only the factors of dry/chapped lips. Blame it also to the oral products we are using, mouthwash and toothpaste have chemicals that irritates the lips and results to dryness. This is what concerns me now.

After brushing teeth automatically I gargle for mouthwash, and it really leaves my lips dry. I am not fond using of any products on my lips, unless there is a special date to go, I will put on my brick red lipstick. But currently, I am so alarmed how my lips dries a lot this past few days. I have so many lip balm from different manufacturers but I chose to use Kiehl's first. Thank you to Cosmopolitan Singapore's "The Cosmo Caption Contest", there I got this product. 

I decided to put it on regularly every morning before going to office. Colorless, good point. I want to look as natural as I can in office. No blush on, no eyeliners and obviously lipstick is a big NO for me.

When I opened the tube, it make me think how to use it. After a small pinch, the gel will come out, am baffled what to use to get it from that tube. Should I use my fingers?, unsanitary. Put directly it on my lips?, the bacteria may develop to the opening itself. The greatest way is to use cotton buds... for me. 

For one week of using it, I really see the difference. No flaky lips in the afternoon, lesser dryness after my mouthwash routine, and my lips is softer than before. I never used petroleum jelly on any part of my body, why?, because it reminds me of the smell of my niece and nephews butts. Haha! But this lip balm with petroleum is odorless, nice one!  

Very recommendable to people who lives in a dry, hot place like Singapore or with snows. You can buy this lip balm with SPF4 for $17.
