It’s November and, the best part is, winter is just around the corner!!!! I can’t really tell how much I adore chilled weather! ☺️😇 So, I’ve decided to do posts related to products which are going to be helpful during winters. And a lip balm is the first thing that comes to my mind because I have super dry lips, which become even drier during winters. For the first time I have tried VLCC lip balm, so let’s see whether my trial was a good bargain or my pocket’s pain. (that rhymed terribly, I know!)🙈
Coming to the product:
Price: INR125 for 4.5g and has a shelf life of 36 months
Variant: Strawberry (Others being Almond, Cherry, Honey, Rose & Mango)
Packaging: It comes in a colour co-ordinated simple plastic tube with a transparent cap. The material is not so sturdy, which makes it prone to breakage very easily. One drop and BOOM! ⚡️
Claims: SPF 15 | Enriched with Jojoba oil, Almond oil & Vitamin E
Texture: This lip balm does not apply smoothly. I mean, look at the picture above, you can see the uneven surface. It feels like a scrub when applied. I don’t know whether it’s just my lip balm, but it really hurts when you apply it on bare dry lips. For me, there is no soothing effect. At all! 🙍🏻 However, it does smell of strawberries. Yumm! 😋
The verdict: By now you might have already known that this lip balm does not work for my lips. But one thing that I liked about it is that, it beautifully stains my otherwise pigmented lips. I love how my lips look pink post application. The lip balm’s effect stays for hardly couple of hours. And reapplying this makes the situation even worse. So, I’ve started to use it on my already moisturised lips, just because of the stain effect it gives.
Will I recommend? Go ahead and try it out, it might work out for you!
So, which is your most favourite lip balm? Do share with me. Mine is Maybelline Babylips which seems to work out the best for my super chapped lips.
