For ages now, I have issues with dry and blackened lips. I have this weird habit of biting my lips for no reason. I presume may be that caused the blackening of the lips. I wanted a perfect solution for this dryness problem and also improve my lip color.
I came across Vaseline Lip therapy Original in a commercial. Only seeing the ad, provoked me to buy and try it. I decided to buy one and did so a month back. To be very honest, I wasn't very satisfies with the results it produced.
The commercial that I saw claimed that this Lip therapy would sooth the lips due to the presence of aloe vera in it. Additionally, the ad also claimed that it will help to hydrate the lips and protect them from dryness and from getting chapped. This is why I got lured into buying it.
It also contains vitamins A and E that protects free elements and petroleum jelly to prevent moisture loss. The facts provided on the product and in the ad are quite convincing and making us want to buy it. But only after actually using it, do you come to know what exactly the product does.
Initially, when I bought it, I started using it during day time. The first time I opened the pack, I found a green tube. This tube is a twist up tube. So when twisted up, the balm comes out. Once it came out, the very smell of it was refreshing ! I liked the way it smelt. I expected that it provide as good results as it smells. But when I applied it, I found that it was too waxy and it felt heavy on my lips. I hated the feeling of it.
Though it glided smoothly on my lips while applying, it was too waxy, I mean, very badly waxy. I couldn't stand it for more than a couple of hours. I decided to quit using this balm, just when my friend asked me to try it at night. I wasn't really interested to do it, but I just tried for my friend's sake.
I applied it at night and went to sleep. The next morning, when I woke, I was surprised to find that my lips were so soft and smooth ! I didn't expect this to happen, but it actually happened !
So the conclusion is, according to me, this balm works fantastic when applied at night. The next morning , my lips are so soft and smooth ! It also prevents peeling and dehydrated lips. But I don't find it impressive during day time.
I would certainly recommend this for use at night only. If you wish to, try how it works in day time. If it suits your needs, well and good ! :)
