Me oh my did I ever think I would be as upset to start a new lip balm. Although I seem to like all the lip balms I try, I get such an attachment to them that I don't want to throw them out (let's be real, this happens with everything I use...). But I was also eager to try a new lip product, and even more eager to use this Blistex lip balm as I always talk up Blistex.
I've only had medicated Blistex balms before so I didn't know what to expect other than sleek and simple packaging and a promise of smooth lips. First of all, the smell is definitely something to get used to. But when I first used this lip balm, I was shocked.
My lips were dry all day. Well, at least they ate up the balm so quickly I was questioning if it was even working. I was going to have it in my head that this just wouldn't work for me, but I tried to tell myself that it just was drying so quickly because I would eat or drink right after I would reapply. Sure enough, I gave it a few more days of persistence and it does a nice job at keeping my lips nice and moisturized as long as I don't eat or drink every two seconds.
Either way, I'm going to continue to use the lip balm and see if it was just a bit dry and just needed to be worn for a few weeks before the magic happens...
