Hi everyone, today I am going to review Forest Essentials Sugared Rose Petal Lip Balm that I received in ‘My Envy Box February Edition’. It came enclosed in a cute cream pouch from Forest Essentials.
Packaging : It comes in a compact round see-through tub pack with golden screw cap which makes the entire look luxurious. The tub pack is further covered with a white lid.
My Experience : Inside the container, there is a Pink lip balm that smells like roses along with some other herbal fragrance. It has very smooth, butter like texture and you need to rub finger tip on it, to get the product. It looks tinted balm in the jar but it is almost transparent on lips. It gives little tingling sensation on the lips initially that vanishes after 1-2 minutes.
It is highly hydrating and makes my lips dewy and velvety. It is very lightweight and looks like I have not applied anything on my lips. I am using it throughout the day and even at night sometimes. It heals my chapped and dry lips without making them flaky. It smells so delicious that I can’t resist myself from licking (though it tastes weird). It hydrates my lips for 3-4 hours and after that I need to re-apply it.
It works as a great base for lips and I use this lip balm before applying matte lipsticks. The list of organic ingredients make this lip balm a must have product. I think it is not moisturizing enough for extremely dry lips. It is very long lasting and little amount is required during every use. This lip balm has shelf life of 12 months, but the sad part is, this needs to be used within 3 months when opened. Other variants are also available and I would love to try few of them.

I recently bought FE lip balms and upon weighing an empty lip balm case and a never-used lip balm case separately, I found that the difference was only 3 gms and not 5gms as the product was supposed to be. I wrote to FE fb page but they keep hiding my comments. This is how they responded to me:
Forest Essentials Dear Shruti,
We import our lip balm containers. We have already addressed the problem you have bought up in our last consignment, as there was some variation in the depth of the lip balm cases, so some were 1 or 2 GMs less and some 1 or 2 GMs more.
This has been corrected going forward, and since you have unfortunately got one that was 2 GMs less, we would be happy to give you another new lip balm of your choice, complimentary.
Would request you to let us know your nearest Forest Essentials store so that this could be conveyed to them accordingly.
We are sorry for your inconvenience.
Team Forest Essentials
Sooooooo if you have purchased FE lip balm recently, make sure to head to their stores and ask for a new complimentary one because they will not take responsibility for their mistakes and will continue to dupe their customers for as long as they can.
