Major Lip Service

Ever try a product purely by chance, and then lose track of it? When I was in Europe last year, I stocked up on (much more reasonably priced on the Continent) La Roche-Posay products. This simple lip "treatment" was among them. It was a miracle worker, and now that I've found it again, it makes a perfect little gift for your favorite product junkie.

Some balms are sticky. Some are slick. Some taste nasty. Some stink. La Roche-Posay's Nutritic lip treatment possesses none of these aforementioned qualities. Odorless, tasteless, and almost textureless, Nutritic goes on smoothly, like the thinnest coating of moisture. There's absolutely no glop. Chapped lips vanish and your pucker returns to its youthful bee-stung glory. It contains no sunscreen (probably the reason why it doesn't stink or taste foul), so it's more of a night treatment or as a lipstick base. It's also ideal, I discovered, for a long, dehydrating flight.

I finally found it online at the site: One Nutritic will also last for months and months, so for $12.50 US dollars, there's no reason to be tight-lipped (or tight-fisted) about purchasing a bunch and handing them out like the helpful Little Lip Fairy you are.
