Happy to be back home early & writing a product review now! 🙂

It is also available in so many other flavors/fragrance like Chocolate, Banana, etc. Check out Cherry Culture website for more flavors.
Price: USD 0.99 (~ INR 50)
Transparent, sturdy, retractable packaging with labels color coded matching the flavor.The lid also a label stuck with a picture and name of the flavor for easy identification.
Simple packaging but doesn’t look that cheap…The lid locks tight to the chapstick and hence non-messy to carry around.

What the product claims:
Lip treatment for natural & luscious lips.
The way I see it:
This was an accidental yet emotional purchase while shopping for some NYX products at Cherryculture site.
Lipbalms for less than 50 bucks? Just couldn’t resist myself and loaded these 4 onto my shopping cart. One of these came free while they billed me only for the 3 other lipbalms.
One of those rarest species of lipbalms that mention their entire ingredients list! Color coded too.. these all impressed me quite a lot!
Coming to how the product fares, didn’t fail me in this primary section too!
To start with,the lipbalm appears a little greasy on the lips immediately upon application and takes its time to settle and absorb in..
In 5-10 minutes, it absorbs quite well and the lips feel & look moisturized… prep’d & prime’d for your lipstick application now… but applying lipstick over this lipstick makes it fade faster.. this is really a con!
My lips are drier than the Sahara – but this one works good on the hydration front! It relieves dryness from my lips immediately and makes it less cracky thus.
Its non-sticky too!
Sometime back when I had mild cracks on my lips, 2 days of continuous application of this lipbalm reduced it to a great extent!
This has become my GO-TO lipbalm before bedtime these days! 🙂
The fragrances are mild (coffee is slightly stronger) and dont stay around for long.. so not to bother much on that front too..
Overall, good value for money… suitable for dry-lipped beauties as well!
