Clinique Super Balm Review

Clinique Super Balm Review

I’m what you call a lip balm addict. I have tubes of the stuff in my purse, on various tables throughout the house, in the car, and on my nightstand. My problem is, I like to wear lipcolor, but it’s often drying. Thankfully, I found that Clinique’s Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss provides the best of both worlds – the emollient effects of a lip balm and the flattering coverage of a sheer gloss.

Clinique Super Balm

When I first put the gloss on, I noticed how smooth the texture was. Many of the cheaper drugstore brands are sticky, grainy, or gummy. Who wants to keep pulling their hair off their mouth because it keeps sticking to the lip gloss? I didn’t have this problem with Clinique. The texture of Superbalm stayed smooth on my lips and my hair stayed off the front of my face. For that reason alone, it’s worth the $15 price tag.

A second thing I noticed was how soft my lips stayed while wearing the gloss. Usually, I have to layer lip balm under whatever color I’m wearing, but this product contains moisturizing ingredients that kept my lips from drying out. Even after the gloss wore off, I noticed that my lips remained hydrated. It’s nice to know that I’m providing them with conditioning.

This product comes in several shades. My chosen color is Black Honey. It gives my lips a pretty stained look as though I ate a bowl of cherries. Best of all, the color stands out and lasts a while. The product gives a nice shine but doesn’t give you that plastic coating look.

Since high school, I’ve used the Clinique brand of products. I trust them for the consistent quality and their continued research in the cosmetic industry.
