I find it amusing that the BEST LIP BALM I HAVE EVER COME ACROSS was designed for men.
Jack Black Intense Lip Therapy is some seriously amazing stuff. If you’ve read my previous lip balm posts you’d know all about how much I struggle with dry lips and how frustrating it is that balms that seem to do the job for other girls just didn’t seem to work for my lips. This balm was recommended to me by the ridiculously gorgeous Holly (of Beatideas.)
This lip balm is intensely hydrating, and seems to ‘penetrate’ the skin rather than just sitting on my lip surface- so that even after the balm has worn off, my lips feel healthier and softer. It stays on my lips for a decent amount of time (a good hour or so) before I need to reapply.
There is a minty scent, and a cooling tingling sensation with this balm which I now find quite pleasant.
Jack Black Intense Lip Therapy is conveniently packaged in a small squeeze tube, and the texture of the lip balm is halfway between ointment and gel so it spreads easily even on bitterly cold mornings.
Another important advantage of this balm is that it has SPF 25, which is more SPF than found in the majority of lip balms. And of course, as the title of this post suggests- it is petrolatum free.
I purchased this tube from Sephora.com through a mail forwarding service, and have ordered a few backups in the original mint flavour- as well as their new flavours Grapefruit and Ginger, Black Tea and Blackberry.
