They say the first step is admitting you have a problem. My name is Gemma and I’m addicted to the Caudalie Lip Conditioner. If I were a conspiracy theory kind of gal I’d bet my bottom dollar that Caudalie have been secretly pumping something into their products – after all, I do have an ongoing dependency on their Beauty Elixir, or as I like to call it ‘crack in a bottle’. I feel so strongly about that that I wrote about it not once but twice, here and here, and I’m also having a serious relationship with the Divine Oil and their eye cream, but that’s another story. Today we’re talking lip balm and why I can’t quite quit this unassuming stick of joy.
It all started when I had the norovirus. If you saw my March Favourites video you’ll know that this was The Worst Time™ in the 27 years my lips have been around. They were painful, dry, chapped, and nothing I usually used could fix it. I had to call in the big guns and use a combination of Eight Hour Cream at night and this baby in the day. Now, I’d had this since December and initially dismissed it as a plain chapstick and banished it to a drawer of backups to live a lonely life. The thing is, this IS a plain chapstick. It has no real scent, no colour, pretty plain packaging, and none of the bells and whistles that make girls swoon (I’m talking about you By Terry).
I honestly can’t even really pinpoint what it is about this little thing that is so amazing, but I can’t stop using it. In fact. I’ve used up TWO of these and have another one on the way from Feel Unique. Hey, it’s cheaper than crack. Made of 99.5% natural ingredients like Shea butter and Castor Oil, it’s completely free of Parabens, Phenoxyethanol, Mineral oils, Genetically modified organisms, Paraffin, Synthetic artificial colourings, Sodium laureth sulphate, Phthalates, Animal-derived raw materials (phew!) as are all Caudalie products. Quite frankly, it just works. If you’re after a good lip balm that isn’t greasy and will really nourish with no nasties, this is for you. It might be quiet, and unassuming, but who needs a fancy expensive lip balm when you can get this for less than £5 and grab lunch with the money you saved?
