Tried & Fail – La Mer The Lip Balm

La Mer products are typically on the pricier side, so it’s only natural to expect a product with quality. I was on the hunt for a new balm and figured I would give this one a shot based on glowing reviews I read through.

The balm was $75 and I ended up buying it from Nordstrom.
The balm goes on pretty nice. It’s a bit on the thinner side, so a little goes a long way. There’s a creamy, almost satiny feel to the balm. It has a nice & light minty scent, which I liked.

The downside – I found myself having to reapply very often – more often than with other products. I also felt like this product was semi-drying, but definitely caused flakiness. Lastly, this is best as an at-home balm for me, since I am opposed to carrying a balm in my purse that requires finger application.

This product just isn’t for me. I’m glad I gave it a go, but I definitely would not purchase this again.
