Hey everyone, today I will review a lip balm from USA’s well known lip care brand ChapStick, from the company named Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. They offer 9 different variants of these lip balms, but I am not sure whether all the variants are available in India or not. I received this Chapstick Active Lip Shield 365 lip balm in my May 2014 Fab Bag.
Packaging : The lip balm comes in a white retractable pack with click lock cap. The packaging is compact, sturdy and travel friendly. The only problem that I found with this lip balm is, it comes out easily by twisting the bottom but I need to push it manually with finger to put it back inside and I find it very unhygienic.
My Experience : I am a lip balm addict and got very excited when I saw this chapstick lip balm in my Fab Bag. I heard a lot about these lip balms, so wanted this to work for my dry lips. I have used it a few times. It comes in off white color and has buttery smooth texture. It has refreshing lemon fragrance which is very pleasant. It glides smoothly onto lips without tugging. It comes with broad spectrum SPF 50 that provides full protection against harmful UVA rays. It claims to provide all season protection from the sun, wind and cold. Okay, now lets sum up the pros & cons of this ChapStick Active Lip Shield.
What I Liked :
- It has a pleasant lemon flavor
- Didn’t melt when exposed to heat
- Not very expensive
- Has Broad Spectrum SPF 50
What I Disliked :
- Made my lips more chapped than before
- Caused itchy rash around the lips & left my lips peeling
- Left thick white residue on my lips
- Felt very uncomfortable on the lips
- Didn’t hydrate lips but made them cakey & dry
- Packaging could have been better
- Didn’t live up to its claims
