Korres mandarin lip butter stick spf15

Going back through the years, I remember my self I 've had quite a hydrated skin with a slight tendency to get oily in the summer...as I grow up (30's here I come!!!) I realize that my face gets oilier in contrast with my lips which are getting drier..
I find myself biting my lips during the day many times, which of course aggravates their condition.
I've used some products over time but the most effective is korres mandarin lip butter spf 15.
(image by www.pharmacyonline.gr - this is the colorless I have)

I absolutely LOVE this product.
I was surprised and relieved to see my lips in one day of use become smooth and healthy looking, I've never tried a product like that, the results were instant.It's even better than the korres lip butter wild rose (in the pot), in my opinion.
Pros:
-moisturizing with a healing effect (perfect for chapped lips)
-when it "wears out" it leaves my lips totally soft
-it is not addictive for the lips as other cosmetic products are
-gives a satiny feel on the lips without making them greasy
-it INSTANTLY hydrates
-it's got a soft scent of mandarin which makes it more of a girly than a farmaceutical product.
-non sticky
-affordable : I spent 4 euros-bought it at hondos center (greek cosmetics store), but I've seen it in pharmacies sold for 6euros.


Con's:
None, for me it works perfectly, the only con is that sometimes I want to eat it (it is delicious).

Other info:
contains shea butter, sunflower wax, mandarin oil

haven't tried any of his lip products. Is it worth it? I have tons of chap sticks, vaseline for lips etc but I'd love to try it out...!

I've really enjoyed the Korres line. I do have the balm in a pot. I do like using it. I'll have to try this one out as well. Thank you posting about it as I've never seen it.

I would love to try some Korres products soon! They seem really good. I often have dry lips so I think these ones would work well.
Thanks for telling us about them.

I have a theory that if you use lip balm, you develop a need for it lol. I know its silly but it seems like when I don't use it, I never have dry lips!
