LA MER Cosmetics. LA MER The Lip Balm. Thinner than any other part of the face, the lips are potentially defenseless against sudden changes in temperature, wind and environmental dryness, so they need special attention. The Lip Balm is a luxurious and intense repairing formula that works against the usual roughness, differences in texture and helps to regenerate lips with severe dryness. A potent concentration of "La Mer's nutrient-rich Miracle Broth" renews the delicate lip area, while the patented "Lip Lipid Complex" provides a protective hydration barrier that helps prevent future damage. It has a refreshing mint touch. Gently apply a small amount of product to the lips.
