As I mentioned in my recent Lipivir review, my lips get really dry and need regular exfoliating and moisturizing. A simple lip balm or moisturizing lipstick is not enough, especially if I wear mattes or am out in the wind. One of the few lip balms I have actually been impressed with is Flexitol Lip Balm for Extremely Dry Lips. This is meant to improve dry and chapped lips in just one day.
The before and after photos for Flexitol Lip Balm are quite a claim showing very dry chapped lips. The scent is a little weird and it somehow manages bubblegum and mint at the same time? Nothing offensive though. At $5.49 at my local Rexall, it is very affordable for how well it works. I still need to use a scrub, but I do even with really expensive lip balms.
Flexitol Lip Balm helps to alleviate soreness and discomfort, plus visibly softens and smooths lips quickly. Enriched with 2.5% synthesized urea for better penetration, the rich emollient base of Flexitol Lip Balm will hydrate dry lips.
Flexitol Lip Balm for Extremely Dry Lips comes in a squeezy tube with chiseled applicator tip. I prefer these applicators, wearing KISS nails, I tend to get some lip balm under my nail tip from tubs of lip balm. You can apply it 3-4 times a day if your lips are really dry but I find it enough using just morning and night. The menthol in it leaves your lips feeling nice and cool too.
