A little pot of extreme moisture...Sisley Nutritive Lip balm.

Sisley Nutritive Lip balm 9g around: £41.00
A rich/intense texture.
What they say:
With its exceptional repairing benefits, Nutritive Lip Balm is a true emergency treatment for cracked, dry and chapped lips.
The Nutritive Lip Balm formula is rich in soothing, emollient and protective lipids which provide lips with moisture and protection. The melting texture is naturally coloured by its own ingredients and leaves the lips feeling comfortable and supple.
A combination of oils (hazelnut, plum kernel, sunflower), shea butter and kokum butter.
Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate / Hexastearate / Hexarosinate, Butyrospernum Parkii (Shea Butter), Silica, Beeswax / Cire D'Abeille (Cera Alba), Garcina Indica Seed Butter, Triisostearin PEG-6 Esters, Corylus Americana (Hazel) Seed Oil, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Prunus Domestica Seed Extract, Propylparaben, Hydrogenated Soybean (Glycine Soja) Oil, Tocopherol, BHT.

Why I rate it:
No fragrance, no mineral oil it is not greasy but relatively *solid* and melts, it is very moisturising and I personally use it for MANY things in an emergency as well as a very nourishing lip balm obvs:

  • Lip Balm- very healing and ultra nourishing even for *problem* dry/cracked lips.
  • Mixed with a little sugar to create a very gentle lip exfoliator
  • A base for lip gloss, because it has a waxy kind of texture it gives the lip gloss something to adhere to
  • A clear wax for brows ( tiny amount on the back of your hand brushed through the brows with an agled brow brush
  • To seperate lashes, use a tiny amount on a clean mascara wand and just zig zag through the lashes for a little extra definition but pigment- free
  • Dry skin salve and dry/very red skin, just a tiny amount to add some extra moisture
  • Ok weirdest yet but so effective- a tiny amount rubbed between the finger tips and used to smooth fly-away ends/a little frizzy hair action.
I find a little goes a very long way, not exactly *in-expensive* but 100% multi-purpose.
