It’s been raining in Bangalore for about a week now and our woolen clothes are out. The Cyclone in Chennai is cause of this sudden temperature drop in Bangalore. This heavy rainfall has certainly thrown Chennai’s and our normal life out of gear. We are desperately waiting for a clear weather and the sunshine. It seems winter is already here and I have made some new purchase to take care of my skin this winter. The first one to get reviewed is lip balm from Biotique which is a necessity as I get dry and bleeding lips in winters.
Was INR 99 for 16 gms Now 149 for 12 gms. (They have changes the packaging and price)
Angur(Vitis Vinifera) 2.0%, Vach (Acorus Calamus) 1.5%, Mulethi (Glycyrrhiza glabra) 2.0%, Badam(Prunus amygaldus) 1.5%, Surajmukhi (Helianthus annus) 2.5%, Kusumbhi (Carthamus tinctorius) 4.0%, Til (Sesamum indium) 4.5%, Erandi (Riinus communis) 12.0%, Marham Base Q.S.
Directions for use:-
Smooth on and around bare lips, alone or under lipstick.
My opinion on the product:-
I have very dry lips and sometimes it bleeds when I don’t take a good care of them especially in winters. I love lip balms and tinted ones are my favorite. This lip balm comes in a green tub like packaging with a screw open lid. After unscrewing the green lid you will get a white flat disc covering the tub and securing the product from any leakage and wastage.
You can easily take off that and use the lip balm. The balm is a little reddish brown in color and actually very thick. You need to use your finger to take it out from the tub and apply it. It sometimes gets into my nails so I always wash my hands properly before using this balm.
The balm has very smooth texture that gets spreads easily on lips and you only need a little every time. When I first applied it felt like a little sticky and heavy on my lips.it is definitely not a lip balm which I can apply under my lipstick or while I am going out. I use it during night and have been using it for about 2 month now and the product has reached halfway. May be for another 2 months it will be over.
The quantity is huge compared to the price given. It moisturizes my lips for 3-4 hours. It has mils smell of black grapes which is not very overpowering. It has no taste which I found when I licked my lips accidently. It is natural and has 100% Botanical Extracts. It gives little tint to my lips but the claim of the whiting effect is not true. My lips are not very dark and when I constantly keep is moisturized and healthy it appears a light lighter than my dry lips.
What I Liked:-
- Easily available
- Smooth texture and easy to apply
- Moisturizes well
- 100% Botanical Extracts
- Huge quantity.
What I didn’t Liked:-
- Tub packaging.
- No SPF.
- Can’t be used under lipsticks.
- No whitening effects.
Will I repurchase and recommend:-
Yes, I am using it as a night lip balm and quite happy with the results. You can buy this if you need a 100% Botanical Extract and affordable lip balm for night.
