Yes, By Terry products are expensive, but so are many other luxury brands. The difference is that these items really create change. The scrub is gentle and moisturizing. There are no words to describe the benefits of the balm. It rejuvenates my lips beyond my wildest expectations. I've used other products that claim to do that, but this balm really does. And it seems to be cumulative. In other words, the more I use it, the plumper and healthier my lips become.
