Go on then ‘kiss me tonight’! My lips are all smooth and soft, no dry flakes to be found…You might have guessed it, I’m talking about Philosophy kiss me tonight. Although I read some raving reviews on this product I never got around testing it until I got it for my birthday.
Since then I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks and just in time. Come winter, even when it’s not freezing cold like now, my lips are always dry and sometimes crack (and it always happens on those moments when I start to smile…). Perfect timing for my birthday gift.
What is Philosophy kiss me tonight supposed to do? “kiss me tonight is an intense lip therapy that keeps lips soft and in perfect kissable condition with an ultra-creamy formula. it works on contact to soften roughness, relieve dryness and soothe seriously dry lips. this luxurious lip treatment helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, adds shape and definition, and restores a healthy rosy appearance.” [Philosophy]
Kiss me tonight has a rich and creamy texture with a subtle vanilla mint scent which is not overpowering. It contains, among others, castor oil and shea butter (for full ingredients list, see below) which have nourishing powers. Hence my now smooth and moisturised lips I would say. Initially I only used it when I went to bed, but as I’ve got a bit addicted to it I now also use it during the day for a bit of extra shine. You can also use it under your lipstick (I use it under those long lasting lipsticks so my lips won’t get too dry).
By the way, I’m not sure about the diminishing of fine lines, but maybe that will only happen if I use the product for more than a couple of weeks. From a hygienic point of view I would have preferred a tube instead of a jar but maybe that is not possible with the consistency of the creme. So wash you hands before you use it.
Kiss me tonight is small enough to put in my bag (as I’m already carrying my life with me why not not the extra 9 g???). Though it is a bit pricey it’s definitely worth your money as you only need a tiny bit of it.
