The Tender line is a balm/gloss hybrid. The focus here is on keeping your lips soft, smooth, and only faintly colored. The 6-shade collection (ranging from caramel to peach, with a few pinks and a clear in there for good measure) features an SPF of 15 and tastes so good. Even if you usually hate lip balm that has a discernable scent/taste- give this a try. It’s light and juicy. The tube itself is adorable; the size of an index finger, which makes for great portability.
Estee claims the balm improves lip moisturization by 28% and reduces flaking by 34%. While my results certainly aren’t clinical, I will say that my lips feel pretty moist and unflakey. Bottom line is that the Tender Balm looks good, it tastes good, it feels good – the trifecta of goodness. For $14, snag a tube for yourself wherever Estee Lauder is sold.
