VICHY Aqualia Thermal Lévres - Lips

. . . .And so my lipbalm addiction continues! I honestly do not know what is wrong with me and my addiction to lip balms but the minute my eyes see one I have to own it! Anyway ever been online and wondered ''Wouldn't it be fab if there was a website that sold loads of well known brands but also acted like an online chemist?'' Well fear not as I may have found that website.

''Chemistdirect.co.uk is Europe’s leading online chemist, providing over 20,000 health and beauty products and prescription medicines online at the lowest guaranteed price - with the highest pharmaceutical standards. The aim is to supply cheaper products to everybody who has access to the internet and deliver those products to their door within 24 hours.

(Chemistdirect.co.uk. 2013) 

Having had a good browse around the website, I spotted some great brands at competitive prices. There was one brand however that caught my attention due to constant talk and blog posts from bloggers, and that's Vichy. I have seen this brand from time to time in Boots, but I never really took much notice of it as I thought ''It's high-end, and it probably wouldn't agree with my skin type''. However curiousity got the better of me and I thought I would try at least one product to see what all the fuss is about. Although what I have chosen to trial is not skin (face) care base, I thought I would start small and try the lip balm (might as well seeing as I have a weird obsession!)

'' . . Repairs and soothes damaged lips''

First impressions of the product it is the standard looking lip balm. The use of colours (white/blue) are eye catching, with easy to read font. The lid easily comes off with the bottom part (blue) being the mechanism that twists the lip balm out. The lip balm itself is white in colour, with a slight sweet but not overpowering scent. The product is smooth and glides on nicely to the lips. The brand claims that this lip balm is moistursing, soothing and nourishing, and I am inclined to agree. I found it very pleasant to use; I haven't found myself reapplying within minutes of applying which is great, and it has great staying power on the lips. I tend to suffer with dry lips quite frequent when the weather gets a little cold or if I'm a little under the weather. But this product I think is great at combating dry, sore lips.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Lévres Lipbalm* is currently £3.99 at Chemist Direct.
