I always have some sort of balm hanging around wherever I am. I literally have one form or another in each bag, car, and multiple areas of my room. Ya, I'm a little addicted. Chaptstick is one of the brands I first started using as a kid, and as an easy "go-to" form. I still have various flavors hanging around. So imagine my excitement in finding a new kind at the end of 2013? In comes the Hydration Lock with CoQ10.

- 8 Hours of moisture
- Contains antioxidant CoQ10
- Contains hyaluronic filling spheres
- Gives lips a fuller and smoother appearance
- Has a light, silky texture for instant smoothness and enhanced lip feel
Update: Now that I've been using this a little longer, I've noticed that it leaves a slight white film behind when applied. I personally like to load up balms on my lips, and since this is white tinted to start with, the extra layers wash out my natural lip color. Just an FYI.
Bottom Line: It's a nice balm for a short term solution, but it doesn't meet all the claims. If you want the same Chapstick quality with a thicker texture, get this. Otherwise it's nothing special.
