Packaging:

The lip balm comes in a cute, little, chocolaty brown plastic jar. The lid has Oriflame’s emblem engraved in gold which makes it look classy.

It was love at first sight on seeing the jar but I would definitely love if it comes in a stick with the same classic packaging.

The jar has a narrow neck, so it might get tough digging the product out of the jar when it gets to the bottom.

The way I see it:

I am totally in love with the packaging.

It comes wrapped in a little box thus making it ideal for gift purpose as well.

Coming to the lipbalm, it looks pale brownish in the jar but totally comes transparent in the fingers.

Upon application it does not feel waxy and a fresh chocolaty fragrance will hit your noses.

The smell is totally not chocolaty – its kinda chocolate milk shake! Weird I know! 🙂

Its mild & soothing and will not bother your noses. Is there anyone who doesn’t love chocolates?

Its a great moisturiser and moisturises the lips very well. I have been using it as my regular night balm since a week and it smoothens my dry lips quite good.

Even chapped lips can give this a try –  I am sure it will give good results with regular use.

I tried this on my rough elbows and they have smoothened to good extent!

Not good to be used under a lipstick – it might cause it to fade faster.

Summary:

A very nice moisturising lip balm in chocolate flavor that soothes your lips & any dry skin area of your body.
The fragrance is soothing & the jar is cute & classy that you will want to carry around & flaunt.
If you are not bothered about the jar digging, go for it – Its a Limited Edition!
