Description

Thinner than any other area of the face, the lips are virtually defenceless against subtle changes in wind, temperature, dryness, even diet - requiring special attention. The Lip Balm infuses a potent concentration of the original Miracle Broth™ with marine extracts, botanicals and vitamins to renew the delicate lip skin.
This luxurious emulsion works on contact to soften roughness, relieve dryness and flaking and help revive seriously dry lips. A patented Lip Lipid Complex is the first line of defense. It delivers moisture, strengthening the lips' minimal moisture barrier and helping to prevent further damage. An essential protein found in the arctic helps insulate vulnerable lip skin from extreme conditions of heat and cold. Mint comforts the lips and enhances the balm with a cool, refreshing flavor. Like Crème de la Mer, the results are immediate – lips look and feel smoother, softer, plumper – yet long lasting.

Directions

Warm balm with fingertip and apply with a light, patting motion on lips, above and below the lip line. Wait a few minutes before applying lip colour. Worn all day, lips are constantly protected. Applied at night, lips are renewed by morning.

Ingredients

La Mer Miracle Broth consists of sea kelp, which possesses anti-microbial properties; the nutrients calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and lecithin; vitamins C, E and B-12; and oils of eucalyptus, sunflower, wheat germ, alfalfa and citrus. This concoction is painstakingly fermented for three to four months to release the vital energies of each ingredient, then distilled.

Summary
I had high expectations for this product but I have been left feeling like I have thrown my money away. I thought it would be really good considering the price but it was a real let down, the product did not leaves my lips feeling as soft as i thought after using it and it was hard to get the thing on to my lips. The only things that are good about this product are the packing and the smell of the lip balm but if i wanted those i would have gone brought a perfume.

Lovely mint and vanilla taste and fragrance. Classy screw top pot with silver top that look great in the bathroom and in your handbag (if you can afford two of course!). Renews delicate lip skin. Helps to prevent further damage.
Weakest points
Most expensive lip balm I have used to date.
Summary
I have to admit that I am a bit of a product snob - I just love owning expensive sort after brands and the pleasure I get from using them (if they really do meet expectations) almost outweighs the cost especially if they are a gift from a loved one. This product did meet all expectations and I keep it in my handbag and feel very glamourous when I apply it on the go! Please don't think I am being lazy, however if you scroll to look at the review posted by Gypsonic March 8 2012 there really isn't any more I can add as she has captured everything there is about the product in her perfect summary.

Summary
My cousin has this lip balm and I have used it before, I wash shocked at how much it cost though.
Honestly, I would not pay anything near that for a lip balm, especially one that is as good as other natural ones I have used before that are a fraction of the price.
Was a little hard to get enough on the lips and it did absorb a little.
There is only so much you can do to your lips, so there is not much this balm could do in theory.
Lips were soft and nourished, but they were with others that I have had used previously.
I wouldn't buy this, nor recommend it.

The most effective balm I have tried but also the most expensive!

User Reviews

Strongest points
Beautiful balm texture that does not leave lips feeling greasy. Gorgeous vanilla, mint taste and scent. Deeply nourishes and moisturises lips and repair damaged, dry and sore skin. Penetrates fully allowing lipstick wear over the top. Simple screw lid pot packaging
Weakest points
Very expensive initial outlay
Summary
This is possible one of the most effective lip balms I have ever purchased, although sadly it is also one of the most expensive! This balm is full of wonderful natural ingredients which all have significant effects on the lips in their own rights. The pot is a simple package with screw top silver lid and inside there is a sold balm. There is a subtle scent of vanilla and mint which is not only beautiful to smell but the balm has a very soothing and cooling effect on dry, sore and chapped lips. To apply you simply warm a little balm on the finger and apply to the lips. The balm melts but actually penetrates the lip area without leaving a greasy residue. Your lips have a subtle sheen but more importantly feel instantly moisturised, calmed and smooth. Within 2 days of use my lips were in the best condition they had ever been and not a sign of soreness, dryness or chapped skin. This product actually heals problems areas quickly and prevents a repeat of the symptoms. I used to love using this balm at night as in the morning my lips were so soft, smooth and plumped it was amazing! Sadly this is the most expensive balm I have ever seen but the benefits far outweigh the cost so I would highly recommend this as an investment purchase
