Product Review:Chapstick Dual-Ended Hydration Lock!

Confession: I have a serious lip product addiction.

I had one seriously gross case of chapped lips as a pre-teen. You know, the kind where you have to go to the doctor and get a cream because it’s spread around your lips and flakes and burns, and all that other gloriously awesome stuff?

So, ever since, you’d be hard pressed to find me without anything ON my lips, and I always have at least 3 lip products in my bag at all times! My favorite lip balms are EOS Lip Spheres and Smith’s Rosebud Salve. I think maybe I was under the impression that I “graduated” from Chapstick, so it was good to get back to them for this review.

As a #birchblogger (a program through, one of my top subscription boxes), I was given the opportunity to try both formulas of one of the latest Chapstick products absolutely free, and I wanted to share my experience with you!

I actually really enjoyed both formulas. This product comes in a Renew/Moisturize formula, as well as a Day/Night formula!

I have been keeping the Day/Night formula on my nightstand, and using it before bed and pre-makeup in the mornings.


Here are some of the highlights of this one:

*Day Formula is ultra conditioning, with SPF to protect your lips during the day

*Night formula is formulated with tamanu oil and natural butters to replenish your lips at night

The Renew/Moisturize has been a staple in my crossbody bag that I take to work. At my dispatch job, I’ve been working 12 hour graveyard shifts, so it’s imperative to try to stay hydrated, and I try to be sure I’m taking extra care of my skin, and lips, with the whacky hours and their impact on my sleep schedule!


Some highlights:

*Moisturize formula is formulated to smooth and reduce the appearance of fine lines, and also has CoQ10 and hylauronic spheres for moisture.

*Renew formula has shea butter to condition and instantly soften lips

Overall? I am REALLY happy with both formulas! I seem to gravitate towards the moisturize side of the Renew/Moisturize formula, but if I sense any extra dryness, I use the renew side!

These products are affordable, and great for purses, gym bags, and even keeping one in the car.

But again, I am absolutely obsessed with always having something on hand for my lips. It’s a lifestyle for me!

Thanks again to Birchbox and Chapstick for giving me a chance to try these awesome products, absolutely FREE! Learn more about these products, from ingredients to benefits, at!
