Has anyone tried this? I wanted to get the Clarins one but it is a little pricey and this is £10.90. Can't find any reviews online!

I like it but I do have to reapply quite often. The moisturised feeling doesn't last long

Can't speak for the Kiko but I have the Clarins one and have to say I'm not impressed at all and I don't even suffer from extremely parched/chapped lips or anything. I'm not a fan of the smell, but aside from that like Dragon mentioned you find yourself needing to reapply it a lot (far more than a lip balm or lipstick) and I don't think it's actually doing anything but sealing off your lips. I mean it looks nice on, pretty much like a lip gloss but that's the nicest thing I'd say about it, my simple Dr. Bronner's lip balm that I use before bed does a better job all round.

Mine was for Kiko. I have not tried Clarins. I wore it today and I found myself reapplying 90 minutes after leaving the house (no food/ drink involved)

In a moment of weakness I bought the Clarins on recommendation of pushy saleswoman. . Works as a lip gloss but moisturising properties are useless and as others have said, it seems to disappear after about half an hour. The one up side is that its not overly sticky but i couldn't recommend it. You'd be better sticking a bit of almond oil on. Or a chapstick.

I love my Clarins one, I find it lasts a good few hours and I wouldn't expect much more than that from this kind of product, looks nice on and feels really lovely, comfortable, I like the scent (I have the honey one) and I feel a bit indulgent each time I use it. Lips are softer since using it, I've had it for nearly 2 months and it's about half used up, I feel like I use it quite a bit - most days - and if I finish it (which looks likely!) I'll repurchase.
