Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue Medicated Balm

I have heard nothing but great things from the Baby Lips line.  In the checkout line last night, I noticed a balm in a really pretty pink color called Pink Me Up, so I decided to give it a try.

Of course I did not notice until I got home that it was a MEDICATED lip balm.  Actually, I didn't even notice until I tried it on (yes, I can be that blonde sometimes).  I was thinking, WOW, that is NOT the flavor I was expecting.  Lol.  You can definitely taste the menthol (.5%) and feel the slight tingle.  So if you are looking for a good medicated balm, this is a great bet!  

Here are a few things I noticed:

1. My lips did feel super soft and smooth.  The menthol taste/feel did not last too long and I was left with amazing feeling lips.

2. The color is MUCH more sheer than I had expected.  It was almost as though I was not wearing any color at all.  There are several shades to choose from, so when I pick up an unmedicated tube, I will certainly try to find something more pigmented.

3. The cost is very pocketbook friendly.  

4. The wrapper has a sticker that you peel off for drug info.  My sticker did not lay flat and kept wanting to peel.  I tried to peel it off to make the tube smooth and the whole label with the name of the product wanted to come off.  This is a little annoying to me, although it is not a deal breaker.  I just thought I would give any of my OCD ladies a heads up.  It may drive you a little crazy!

Will I try this again in the future?  Definitely.  My lips feel super amazing (yes, I just said super amazing.  I spend my days with over 160 teenagers).  I will just be more careful next time and hope that this sticker issue was just a flaw.  :)
