Hi everyone! I’m reviewing the best lip balm that I have used till date. It is The Body Shop Vitamin- E Lip Care SPF-15 lip balm. Read on to know more.
· Soothes dry lips
· With SPF 15
Price: Rs. 255 for 4.2g
Packaging: The Body Shop Vitamin- E Lip Care SPF-15 comes packed in a simple twist-up tube, which is of a light pink color. The cap is a translucent white, and shuts securely. The tube is very convenient to use, and carry in the bag. Also, I like tube packaging for lip-balms as opposed to tub packaging, for reasons of hygiene.
Ingredients*: Ricinus communis (Castor Oil) (Emollient), Hydrogenated Coconut Oil (Emollient/Hair Conditioner), Olea europaea (Olive Oil) (Emollient), Cera Alba (Beeswax) (Emulsifier/Emollient), Candelilla Cera (Candelilla Wax) (Stabiliser), Octyl Methoxycinnamate (Sunscreen), Benzophenone-3 (Oxybenzone) (Sunscreen), Cocos nucifera (Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil) (Emollient/Hair Conditioner), Tocopheryl Acetate (Antioxidant), Calendula officinalis (Calendula Extract) (Natural Additive), Vanilla planifolia (Vanilla Extract) (Natural Additive), Ammonium Glycyrrhizate (Flavour), Echinacea purpurea (Coneflower) (Natural Additive), Tocopherol (Antioxidant).
Texture/ fragrance: The balm is off-white in color in the tube, but applies transparent. It is a bit hard in consistency, i.e. it isn’t buttery soft, but it’s not too hard to hurt. Just that it’s not mushy like other lip-balms. It has a mild vanilla fragrance, which stays for around 5 minutes.
My experience with The Body Shop Vitamin- E Lip Care SPF-15: This is by far the best lip balm that I’ve ever tried. It’s very moisturising, and I only apply it twice a day, once in the morning, and once at night, and it keeps my lips hydrated for the rest of the day or night. Earlier I used to apply lip balm every 4-5 hours, but with this one, my life is sorted, atleast in terms of lip-care. Also, the mild fragrance is very pleasant. Please note that I do not have very dry lips. I wear it under lipsticks everyday, and it does not lead to fading/ slipping of the lipstick at all.
It also has some SPF content in it, so it’ll save the lips from the sun. What more can one want from a lip-balm? And for all that it does, I find the price to be completely justified!
Pros of The Body Shop Vitamin- E Lip Care SPF-15:
· Convenient and hygienic packaging
· Very moisturising
· Keeps the lips hydrated for upto 8 hours
· Mild vanilla fragrance
· Can be worn under lipstick, without leading to the fading of lipstick
· It has SPF-15
Cons of The Body Shop Vitamin- E Lip Care SPF-15: None.
Verdict: The Body Shop Vitamin- E Lip Care SPF-15 is a must-have for everyone! Do give it a try.
