I was kindly sent this product by Benton for review purposes.
Honestly (pun intended), I was very impressed. I used this lip balm for a whole month, and it was able to help alleviate the dry patches on my lips without feeling heavy or exacerbating any fordyce spots! I have included a before and after pic of what it can do within a few minutes, but trust me, before using this stuff every day, my lips looked way worse 😅
Working in healthcare means I'm wearing a mask for 8+hrs a day, and the masks were making my lips dry and irritated. The Honest Lip Balm formed a protective layer so sweat wasn't sitting around my mouth, and the gross, damp environment of a mask couldn't attack my poor lips! Somehow it simultaneously forms a protective layer, while also sinking in and absorbing nicely.
In a pinch, I also used this around my nostrils one day when I was have a lot of flakiness from using retinol. Upon reading the tips for use again, Benton actually recommends using this lip balm like this! It's so gentle and versatile, it worked wonderfully.
