Chapped Lips

My Take on Himalaya Herbals Natural Intensive Lip Balm:

The product that I will be reviewing today is the latest product by Himalaya Herbals – Natural Intensive Lip Balm. When my Himalaya Lip Butter was about to get over, I thought of getting myself another clear lip balm and it was then that I spotted this at a medical store.  I thought that the Himalaya people have answerd my prayers and introduced the lip butter in a stick form.

A closer look at the lip balm and it turned out to be a completely different product , I thought what the heck and bought it straightaway.

Chapped Lips

Now, let’s start with the packaging first.  Its a big turn off for girls who look look for cuteness in their lip balms, it looks more like an inhaler to me than a lip balm. The lip balm is soft and glides easily on the lips; however, I don’t like lip balms that feel heavy on the lips and this does feel heavy and gives a bit of waxy feeling.  The cap is tight enough so no problem in carrying it around in the bag.  It smells a bit medicinal and a bit herbal, nothing bothersome about it though. About treating chapped lips, due to the change in the weather, my lips had turned all red and chapped and it certainly has healed them to some extent.  Its moisturising and stays on my lips for a good 1-1.5 hours.

Overall, I would say that I am disappointed with this lip balm and its a passable product, especially when it comes from Himalaya Herbals, who have had a hit with the lip butter. I won’t recommend it to anyone, rather I would suggest to add another 50 bucks and get the Himalaya lip butter if you don’t mind the tub packaging.

Being a stick lip balm, people might immediately compare it with the Lotus Herbals Lip Balm, which in my opinion is a cult favourite when it comes to a drug store brand, with qualities like no waxy feeling , a lip balm in variants like rose , chocolate , vanilla , being completely herbal and coming with SPF 5 as an added advantage, this one is a sure shot winner, but if you want a lip balm that you can use at night and genuinely does the work of a “a lip balm,” then Himalaya Herbals Lip Butter it is. I call it the miracle product and here I would also like to share that it has also lightened the color of my lips.

The stick of my himalaya lipbalm just broke after just 12 days of using it!
