I really like the brand First Aid Beauty as a whole (their Face Cleanser is a favourite of mine) and I remember some of my favourite bloggers mentioning this lip balm as their favourite next to Nuxe's Reve de Miel Lip Balm. I tend to have quite dry lips so any trusty recommendation in this department comes in handy.
The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy comes in a squeezy tube and contains 14.8 ml of product. The tube is light blue with silver and red accents, like most packaging from the brand's skincare line for sensitive skin. The balm has a lot thinner and smoother balmy consistency than Nuxe's Lip Balm but is still very nourishing and repairing on the lips, without feeling greasy. It has a soft and refreshing pleasant minty scent and very slightly tingles on the lips for a couple of minutes when it's first applied. It adds a bit of sheen to the lips, but the finish is more satin-matte than glossy which I appreciate for daytime wear. I often use it as a repairing treatment at night, but the consistency is also light enough to wear it during the day, either on its own or under/over more drying products (it makes liquid lipsticks tolerable for me). When I apply it as an overnight treatment it usually stays on the lips until the morning, but during the day it easily transfers to a cup or glass, so it needs to be reapplied. It quickly heals chapped lips and any dryness is gone overnight or by the next night.
Because of its texture and ease of application I've ended up liking it more than Nuxe's Lip Balm, because that one tends to have small grits inside and is quite thick, so I find it only works for me in winter. Also, the packaging of Nuxe compared to First Aid Beauty isn't the best, especially if you're using it on the go and have to stick your finger into a pot.
The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy is formulated without Petroleum Jelly and Beeswax, but contains oatmeal to soothe the skin, shea butter and glycerin to moisturize and provide barrier protection on the lips and dimethicone, which softens the skin.
