Vaseline Lip Therapy Review

Hello Ladies, today I am going to review Vaseline lip therapy. I got this product from a nearby store 3 weeks back. I was quiet excited to use this product after watching the ad.

Vaseline range of lip therapy includes:

  • Aloe vera.
  • Cocoa butter.
  • Rose.
  • Normal.

Vaseline Lip Therapy

Price:
Rs. 100/- for 4 g.

What Vaseline Lip Therapy Claims:
Extra soothing and with a touch of aloe vera. It will help soothe and hydrate your lips, protecting them from the elements. Use before 24 months from the date of packaging.

Key Ingredients:

*Aloe extract- soothes and protects.
*cucumber extract- soothing,softening and moisturizing properties.
*Pro-vitamins E & A- protects against free radicals.
*Petroleum jelly – prevents moisture loss.

I have had issues with chapped and dry lips since ages. I was using Lotus Herbals Lip Balm and was quite satisfied with that, but after I saw an ad of Vaseline lip therapy, I felt maybe this is going to be my HG. I started hating this the very first day I used it because it is waxy, waxy, and waxy. So, when I thought of throwing away this product, my mom asked me to use it at night and see if it does any miracle. I used this lip balm at night and to my surprise, the next morning, I found my lips soft and supple.

Here is a swatch:

Pros of Vaseline Lip Therapy

  • It’s a twist up lip balm,it is convenient and travel friendly.
  • It smells nice.
  • Glides on smoothly.

Cons of Vaseline Lip Therapy

  • Waxyyyyyy.
  • I had to apply it and sleep to observe the results.
  • Even though the price is affordable, now I find it too much for such a product.
  • It has no SPF.
  • It can be an okay product for winters, but a big no for summers, eewww!
  • Availability can be a problem because I got this after pestering the shopkeeper like hell. ;-)

Rating:
2 out of 5 (for the packaging and smell).

Will I Repurchase:
No, I won’t. I would use this one at night and switch back to Lotus Herbals for the day time or try Lipice.
