REVIEW: Philosophy Kiss me Tonight moisturizing lip treatment

As you saw in my last empties post, I've ran out my Labello lip balm and thus was looking for a new one to try out. It was kind of like a black hole for me, 'cause I had been using Labello ever since I was a young teenager. What else was out there on the lip balm market? 

Mr. Boyfriend gave me the Philosophy Kiss Me Tonight lip treatment for Valentine's day, and I'm happy to say my black hole has been filled. For now.

What does the product claim to do:
- Condition and soothe dry, cracked lips
- Restore healthy, rosy appearance of the lips
- Naturally derived emollients nurture, soften and moisturize

Sounds like I could use some of that! I've been having cracked lips for months now.

Here you can read the ingredient list:

As you tell, the lip balm contains a lot of butters and oils such as seed oil, shea butter, sunflower seed oil, olive fruit oil, castor oil, etc.

Use: I take a small amount on my ring finger (a little goes quite a long way) and dab it gently on my lips. It does take a while to sink in, so I like to use it especially at night.

Packaging: I'm not the biggest fan of the jar, but it seems so hard to find a different, more hygienic packaging for lip balms. I do like the white lid in between the product and the screw lid.

Price: $21 at the official Philosophy website or €15.20 at Ici Paris XL for 90 grams or 0.30oz.

Conclusion: It feels very nice on the lips and I immediately noticed softer, hydrated lips. It does but slightly reminds me of Vaseline in texture. I hope this does more than just simple, cheap Vaseline. I also feel like I've been going through it quite fast, so I'm trying to use it sparingly now. All in all this is a nice product!

Do you have any lip balm recommendations?

  1. Ik ben fan van Smith's Rosebud Salve én de Crème de Rose van Dior, maar deze ziet er ook erg fijn uit. Denk dat ik binnenkort de Philosophy-hoek bij de Ici Paris XL 'n keer ga raiden ;-).

  2. Klinkt gewoonweg iets dat ik moet proberen!! Ik heb al vanalles geprobeerd maar mijn lippen blijven in de winter een echte hel.

  3. Wauw, klinkt erg fijn!! Ik heb al zoooveel producten en vaseline geprobeerd die gewoon niet werken. Ik ga dit zeker eens proberen! Erg fijne tip!
