Clinique Superbalm Lip Treatment // Review

As the colder months drift in every year lip balms come out in full force. I'm drowning in a sea of lip balms at the moment that all claim to do different things. My lips get so dry in A/W as the brisk winds strip them of any moisture so when I had the opportunity to try this Clinique Superbalm Lip Treatment I said yes straight away, who doesn't want soft lips? I've tried the Clinique Superbalm Moisturising Glosses and I think they are really good so I couldn't wait to start trying this out when it came through my letterbox.

I've been using this product for 2-3 weeks now and I hate to say it but I'm really not impressed. Since I love the lipgloss version of this I really thought I would love it! This lip treatment claims to be a deeply hydrating balm with repairing properties that replenish moisture loss. Also it claims that when applied overtime there will be a noticeable difference in the firmness, cushion and texture of your lips. Unfortunately this isn't quite what I experienced!

Firstly the actual product is quite thick and sticky, it really isn't very inviting. It leaves your lips feeling really sticky and I struggled to apply any lip products over it, even after leaving it on for a while. My hair got caught in it constantly and it really was just annoying to have on my lips! As for moisturising properties I didn't notice any big improvement in how hydrated my lips were, even after a few weeks. Admittedly it isn't all bad though, my lips did feel a little softer afterwards but I can't put up with the sticky texture just to have slightly softer lips.

I really was expecting a lot more from this product, especially as it comes with a £13 price tag, it just wasn't for me though!

  1. I used to buy the superbalm gloss too and also loved it, so it's disappointing to hear that this doesn't live up to the gloss. Stickiness in a lip balm is my pet hate!

    1. I think if the formula was the same as the gloss I would have loved, I can't stand sticky lip products either! xx
