Love it: Kiehl’s new Butterstick Lip Treatment

Since the opening of its original apothecary in New York City in 1851, Kiehl’s has become a globally renowned name in the skincare industry for serving its customers the finest formulations made with the most advanced skincare science and uniquely efficacious, natural ingredients. The customer has always been central to Kiehl’s, inspiring each and every company decision from development to sampling to service philosophy, and the brand has an uncanny knack for creating must-have products that yes, you need RIGHT now.
The latest release that arrived across my desk just as the temperature was dropping is the brand’s beautiful new Butterstick Lip Treatment, which is the latest formula to be added to the impressive Kiehl’s lineup of lip care. Already famous for celebrated hydrating lip formulas like Lip Balm #1, Eucalyptus Lip Relief and Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturising Lip Balm (for the blokes), the newbie to the Kiehl’s lip category is something entirely different again.
Butterstick Lip Treatment is a multi-benefit lip treatment collection, available in both clear and sheer hues, to hydrate and protect lips with SPF 25 protection. A super duper hydrating and smoothing balm, it uses a nourishing blend of oils and butters to get the job done that includes Coconut Oil, which instantly melts onto lips for a boost of soothing moisture. With antioxidants like Lemon Butter also in the mix, the yummy lip treatment provides year-round protection for lips, helping them stay hydrated for up to 12 hours after application. 
The skin on our lips is 75 per cent thinner than regular skin and has fewer sebaceous glands, making them drier with a weaker skin barrier. Furthermore, due to accelerated skin cell turnover on lips, the skin on lips loses water an insane three times faster than regular skin and experiences only a third of the hydration. Lip skin also contains three times less melanin than regular skin, making lips more sensitive to sun damage and in dire need of a quality SPF during daylight hours.
Formulated with 100 per cent natural ingredients, this is where Butterstick Lip Treatment steps in for all your lip loving needs. The sunscreen will keep lips protected in the summer sun and the nourishing ingredients will keep lips hydrated throughout the brutal winter months, and Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment also has a light hint of colour that can be layered on for more intensity, which I love.
These sweet looking tubes are on counter now from the Kiehl’s flagship boutique in Britomart, Smith and Caughey’s, Sylvia Park, Westfield Riccarton and Ballantynes, with an RRP of $38.00.
