I am a sucker for anything that smells of rose.. this one was a natural choice for me!
Lets see how good this one turned out to be..
Price: INR 99 for 4 g. ( They have increased their prices to INR 135 now though)
Shelflife: 3 yrs.
Shea butter, Kokum butter, Velvety rose extract.
What the product claims:
Rehydrates, Heals, Protects.
It comes in the stick format which is ideal to use. Travel friendly and hygienic too.
The stick is of pale yellow shade. The bottom screw for the roll-on doesnt work properly most of the times. Probably it is just the fault with my stick.
The way I see it:
The lip balm is of light pink shade. It looks dry in the chapstick though… I wondered how such a dry stuff is gonna moisturize my lips… !! 🙂
But it glides smoothly on the lips and feels non-sticky too.
It does not feel waxy or stays put on the lips like a coating… ideal to be used a lipstick base!
The rose fragrance is very mild when in the tube only… and almost zero when on the lips. Sensitive noses & people who generally do not prefer rose fragrance too can pick this without worries.
It moisturises the lips pretty well. But I am not sure how well it well on cracked or chapped lips.
Has SPF 15 which is an added advantage to use it day time or under a lipstick.
A decent lip balm with impressive ingredients & SPF15.. suitable as a lipstick base for normal to slightly fry lips.
The ‘Yes’ factors:
