Leaves a weird chemical taste in your mouth.
I work outdoors so use SPF lip balms every day.
There's something weird in these that leaves a bad chemical taste in my mouth unlike other products I've used.
It may not be a big deal for some but my policy is the less chemicals I ingest the better!
It's a pity cos the product seems ok otherwise.
Developed irritation immediately
Lip-eze Strawberry with SPF 30 seemed like just the thing after the colder weather set in but within a day I developed a red, rough line around my lips with generalised swelling and dryness. The consistency of the balm is quite dry and wax-like but a plus is that it provides temporary smoothness (not moisturisation, however). After doing some research it seems the camphor, which is a known irritant when included in lip balm, is the cause of the allergic reaction/irritation. I won't be buying this again or recommending it to anyone with even mildly sensitive skin.
NB purchased from Woolworths (Vic).
Questions & Answers
has this product been discontinued?. Can not seem to find it anywhere?
Yes, I was annoyed not being able to find it, so contacted the manufacturer.They stopped production in February 2018.
Looking to by Lip Eze... Does anyone know where I can get some? Husband will only use this brand,
Are your lip balms Cruelty free vegan?
The Lip-eze product does not carry any information on the packaging. However, out of interest, I looked up the site and found that the company does not report the use of animal testing, and other web references also support their practices to be ethical. But, as the product contains lanolin, which I believe comes from sheep, I suppose it would not be vegan friendly.
