Hey everyone, today I am going to review Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm. I really like Himalaya skin care products, as they are natural, not very expensive and are easily available at stores and online shopping websites.
Packaging : The lip balm comes in a simple white plastic tube with green screw cap. The packaging is compact, sturdy and you can easily carry it in your pocket or wallet.
What I Liked about Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm :
- I totally like its hygienic tube packaging.
- The lip balm has almost clear gel like consistency.
- The slide shape of the tube mouth helps in precise application and covers the whole lips in a single go.
- It has a very faint fragrance (which is not at all noticeable) and has no taste.
- It glides smoothly on the lips and hydrates my dry lips very well.
- It heals & soothes chapped lips and leaves my lips soft, smooth and nourished.
- It doesn’t feel sticky or oily on the lips and you can use it underneath matte lipsticks.
- I prefer to use it in the night before going to bed. It provides intense moisturization to my lips and I wake up every morning with soft & supple lips.
- Sometimes I use it as a lip scrub. Apply a generous amount of this lip balm and then massage brown sugar on your lips gently. It helps exfoliating the lips nicely and at the same time hydrates my lips.
- It is enriched with some amazing oils of carrot, castor, coconut and wheatgerm.
- It is a clear lip balm and thus is suitable for men also. Even my hubby keeps one in his laptop bag :D
- It is quite inexpensive and you can buy it easily from local stores and online shopping stores.
What I Disliked about Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm :
- Full ingredients list is missing.
- You need to re-apply it after 2-3 hours.
- Not effective on extremely dry or flaky lips.
Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm Price in India : Rs.28 for 10g
