Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm Review, Photos & Swatches

Hellloooooooooo once again beauties!!! :) :) :)

Hope your makeup gyaan is increasing day-by-day like mine, all thanks goes to our lovely Rati, not only for the makeup gyaan, but also for the friendship that is blooming here on IMBB:puchhi:

Once again, I am here with yet another product of our daily beauty regime, the lip balm, actually another lip balm, Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm.

I’m using this lip balm since 8th standard. Then, I tried to switch to VLCC, unfortunately it didn’t worked for me, so I once again came back to my previous HG lip balm. Lip balm is a necessity for everyone. In fact, it’s a base to make up your lips in a healthy way. Then, what’s better than having a herbal product to nourish and protect your lips.

Himalaya Herbals Lip BAlm2

Price:

Rs. 20 only, isn’t it droolworthy??? :drool: :drool: :drool:

Quantity:

10 grams.

2

Shelf Life:

3 years from manufacturing date.

Ingredients:

(each gram contains) Oils Eranda (Ricinus communis)# 10 mg, Garijara (Daucus carota)# 10 mg, Godhuma (Triticum sativum)# 10 mg, Hyamaraka (Wrightia tinctoria)# 10 mg, Narikela (Cocos nucifera)# 10 mg
Ref: # Bhava Prakasha

Directions For Use:

Apply on lips as and when needed.

Packaging:

I saw two forms of packaging one in which it’s packed in a plastic casing sealed with cardboard on back having product details. Second, a toffee wala big jar having many lip balms sold loose. I guess price of former is Rs. 22 INR.

What Packaging Says:

Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm is, an ayurvedic proprietary medicine, enriched with wheatgerm oil & carrot seed oil that nourishes lips, prevents drying & chapping. It has 100% herbal actives. It’s a hypo-allergic product without any harmful chemicals.

My take on Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm:

Firstly, let me tell you that like most of you, I am blessed with soft pink lips, but some of my friends had pigmented lips. I suggested them to use this product and now they are happy with the results. :mirror:

4

Actually, the secret is every time you apply any lip balm before lip color, it forms a barrier between lips and pigments of your cosmetic, hence protecting lips from getting pigmented. So ladies, please don’t skip this step for the sake of naturally pink and beautiful pout. :specs:

The product is like gel, having off-white color and a little amount is required everytime. It doesn’t interfere with your lip color and can be used as a base under any lip grooming product. It makes lip look fuller as compared to bare lips, which is add-on pro to it. Below is a snap of my lips wearing this lip balm.

Like I said, I switched back to this product once again and now I am hooked with this product. :pigtail: The only change I observed in the product is it fragrance. It changed from herbal to bubble gummy flavor and I have no problems with it. The product is non-greasy and moisturizes lips like a dream. I apply it both during day and bedtime. My lips feel moist and nourished next morning. I rub them gently with damp cloth or toothbrush, apply it once again and I am sorted. This is my regular lip nourishing routine. It doesn’t cause any pigmentation like some other petroleum containing products do. During day, I apply it whenever I need to.

My thumbs-up Points for Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm:

• Inexpensive, it’s the cheapest and best product I have in my make-up shelf.
• Tube packaging.
• Easily available on medical store or even small cosmetic shops.
• Trusted brand.
• Travel-friendly packaging.
• Non-greasy.
• Extremely moisturizing.
• Lips become soft, appear fuller & naturally pink.
• Hypo-allergic with 100% natural actives.
• A little goes long way for me one tube lasts for 5-6 months.
• Not tested on animals.
• Sun protection (this I came to know when I googled about this product… initially I thought it lacks sun protection) :love:

Cons:

Yay, none:D (I feel it’s an achievement for such an inexpensive product) :D :D :D

Would I Re-Puchase:

Yessssss, :teddy: of course. In fact, I recommend this product to each one of you. Go for it girls even if you don’t like it (which I personally feel is not possible, but if it is, so please share with me), it won’t hurt you at all. :waytogo:

IMBB Rating:

5/5.
