GH Review: Vaseline's Lip Therapy with Cocoa Butter
I always stock up on lip balm when I'm in the UK because for whatever reason my lips get extremely chapped on the other side of the Atlantic. In the past, I'd used the basic e45 lip balm, which had been a life saver, but gave these a shot on the recommendation of a friend.
When first applied, it gives a "wet" look to the lips, but this does go away after the first few minutes, so it doesn't look like you're wearing clear lip gloss (if you're not into that).
The real trouble is that, despite being both vaseline and cocoa butter, it's not particularly moisturizing. I've had better experiences with the others, but while they keep my lips from getting chapped, they still make them feel dried out.
This is definitely my least favorite of the bunch and if you are currently in the UK, I'd recommend any of the other three over this.
It's a shame, because I like the basic, old-fashioned packaging and the concept, but the reality is sadly lacking.
