Koress Part II: On Lip Butters


I, like many others, am a lip balm hoarder, for it is the elixir of the gods. What would I do if I left the house without one? I don't even know, that never happens.

Out of my small mountain of lip balms, these Korres Lip Butters definitely reign (although I do have an unopened Nuxe Reve de Miel, waiting for my mountain to lessen somewhat). They are that reliable friend, who will always pull through when needed, and look good while doing so.

The packaging is delightfully minimalistic yet fun, and incredibly satisfying to look at or hold (yes, I find pretty products satisfying to hold).

When I first gave into temptation and bought the mango one from a sale on Feel Unique, I was extremely pleased and surprised to discover that these really pack a moisture-filled punch. They feel very plush (whatever that means), glide on nicely, moisturize, and give a light tint of colour that looks and wears great. As a bonus, they smell delicious!

The only downside as I see it would be that they come in a pot, where you have to dip your finger in to get the product, as it might be too unhygienic for some. Personally, this doesn't really deter me (if anything, my Immunology education has made me less of a germophobe). Though obviously not suited for application in the midst of public transport, I find these great to keep around the house or in my bag, as they seriously aid in painful dry lip situations.
