As I've said before (and feel obliged to say again!) Korres' packaging is great. They use vibrant colors and cool images, which I think make their products feel more fun and luxe. The lids of Korres lip butters correspond to the color of the product inside, so if you own a few of these little guys it's easy to tell them apart. As for the lip butter itself, it's a highly pigmented balm made with shea butter and rice wax to moisturize and protect lips. Most of the lip butters have a sweet, fruity scent that tends to stick around after application. I love Korres' lip butters because they provide moisture and a pop of color at the same time.
Each container of Korres Lip Butter contains about 6g or 0.21oz. of product, which lasts a long time since the lip butter is so pigmented. I tend to be thrifty, but I can definitely justify shelling out a Hamilton for one of these. A con for this product is that the lip butter is packaged in a tub, so you have to dip your finger into the product in order to apply. I don't mind the tub, but I think a tube would be more sanitary, less messy, and more convenient for precise application. Korres, please release the lip butters in tubes? I know you would make a killing on them.....
