Bobbi Brown Lip Balm SPF 15!

Hello everyone,
Today I wanted to share with you the Bobbi Brown Lip Balm that I picked up at the end of summer whilst in London.
I had been interested in this product for a while after the Bobbi Brown makeup artist used it on me when I went for my BB makeover. I felt like it prolonged the longevity of the lipstick and kept my lips feeling and looking moisturised.
The lip balm comes in this really beautiful metal tin which to me is quite old school, and the product itself although looks slightly pink in the tin, is actually clear once applied.

Bobbi Brown claim that this is a 'comfortable, non-greasy lip balm' that 'immediately goes to work comforting and protecting lips'.
I definitely agree this lip balm is non-greasy which is really nice as it makes it feel very light on the lips. I also find it to be non-sticky, as it has a super smooth texture. 
As I do have really dry lips, I like to wear this underneath my lipstick or lipgloss to try and moisturise my lips as much as possible. I do find that it does an okay job of moisturising my lips, but throughout the day I have found that my lips do still get the odd dry patch.
However, because this lipbalm also works as a primer, I do find any lip product I put on top of it goes on really easily and smoothly. I would also say the lip balm prolongs the longevity of any lip product I put over it.

On the whole I am slightly disappointed with the moisturising abilities of this lipbalm as I was expecting it to do a better job. However, I do think the more I use it the more the texture will soften, which may help to moisturise my lips. 
I do like the fact it is non-greasy and non-sticky, and acts as a primer for your lipstick. 
I have also found it to be really good over the top of a more drying lip product as it is clear and has an almost 'matte' finish.

It is a treat as I usually would never spend a lot on a lipbalm, but if you are a lip junkie like myself or find matte lipsticks to be too drying for you, I would recommend giving it ago.
