I am a lip balm junkie and usually reapply it several times overnight. So, when I came across Chapstick Overnight Lip treatment at a drugstore, I figured I would love it. Unfortunately, I had mixed results.
I found that the cream-like balm didn’t last all that well for me and I ended up reapplying my regular balm, which I also preferred, just as often.
The ingredient list also wasn’t all that impressive to me:
Active Ingredient: Dimethicone (2%). Inactive Ingredients: Aloe Extract, Cetyl Alcohol, Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Cyclomethicone, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Isocetyl Stearate, Lactic Acid, Methylparaben, Microcrystalline Wax, Petrolatum, Propylparaben, Salicylic Acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin E.
There are a couple of exfoliators in there, some not-so-natural moisturizers, and paraben preservatives. since I can get more moisture with a good natural balm made with a nice mix of oils, butters and wax, I will stick with that.
