c/o Dermalogica 

Exterior: Sleek silver tube. Classy design. Lightweight
Interior: Unique applicator. Twist the bottom and the product will come out through the 7 small holes in the top. Easy, non messy application. There is control with exactly how much product you want. 

I have tried countless lip balms, chap sticks, and lip treatments over the years and have found myself liking some, and disliking others.  

I love the Renewal Lip Complex by Dermalogica and absolutely recommend it.
After examining how the product looks visually - I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of control you have over the product. You can control exactly how much you want to use and the product will not go to waste. 

Another great feature is the slight scent the product has. It smells fresh and slightly fruity without being overwhelming. The texture itself also gives a nice thick layer over your lips - smooth and balmy. I think that because of its texture - the product lasts longer on your skin. Sometimes I have a tendency to  lick my lips, and because I do that the product comes off. This product has such a great texture that the lip product stays on. I am amazed by how it also retains moisture so well. 

This product also makes a fantastic lip primer before lipgloss or lipstick. It smoothes and minimizes contour lines. 

It can also be used on its own and leaves a nice sheen with a touch of shimmer. 

After two applications, my lips feel hydrated, smooth, and fresh. I highly recommend this product. It goes above and beyond a lip balm and is worth incorporating into your daily routine.
