Why the fuss?

Wednesday, 27 May 2015

I have never understood the fuss behind this “cult” product. It is a satisfyingly thick sticky paste that smells like a herbal ointment. However, I find it fails at its many ascribed uses:
As a lip gloss, it is much too sticky.
It is too shiny to use to tame eyebrows.
It doesn’t work particularly well to soften cuticles and don’t dare use it to tame your fly-aways -unless you like the look of oily hair.
I have had the same tube for over five years. Not because it is long-lasting, but rather because it is not particularly good at anything it is supposed to do. Occasionally, when I have the sniffles, I might remember it exists and use it to relieve my chapped nose (although I find my lip butter works much better).
I must admit, I love the medicinal smell: it makes me think it must be good for something. The packaging is also extremely attractive and conveniently sized.
