Loving the lip balm, but not the priceI LOVE Clinique’s Moisture Surge line so I was really excited to give this lip balm a try. Immediately after applying, this balm feels sticky and thick, not lush and bouncy like expected. But once it warms up with your body temperature, it loses its tackiness, feels soothing and moisturizing and like its moisture has been absorbed into the lips instead of feeling as if it’s just sitting on top of them. It’s a great lip balm for prepping your lips prior to makeup. It’s not greasy or oily and will not break down lipstick or liquid lips. My only complaint really is the price. I don’t think there’s a lip balm in the world that deserves to have a $23 price tag. If I weren’t already a Clinique junkie, there’s no way I would spend over $20 for a lip treatment. Would I purchase again? Probably not. But would I recommend it? Yes definitely. If you have chronically dry lips and you love Clinique products, you’ll probably be happy with this lip balm. For me, I find even the least expensive lip balms to be effectively so it’s not worth another $23 from me. For those with sensitive skin, this lip balm is free of any scent and is completely non-irritating.
