How are you doing today? I am here to share another wonderful lip treat with you all from my beloved Korean brand, AmorePacific. I have tried their skincare products before and found them hydrating enough. Since I finished my much loved Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask, I knew I needed a break from such a sticky and thick lip balm. And that’s how my need (and temptation) led me to this non-sticky but pricey lip balm. Well I won’t claim it to be my HG lip balm as it is way pricey and lacks few good qualities too, but I cannot deny my love for this luxurious lip treatment either. So let’s read more about AmorePacific Moisture Bound Lip Treatment!
• A lip treatment that provides moisture and superior antioxidant protection while preventing fine lines around the lips.
• Replenishes and binds hydration for up to eight hours
• Alleviates irritation, chapping, and roughness of dry lips
• Improves circulation, bringing a rosy glow to the lips
Price: $35 for 0.35 fl Oz, excludes shipping and taxes
My Experience with AmorePacific Moisture Bound Lip Treatment:
I so love its simple yet luxurious white plastic tube packaging with a really attractive twist over cap and spout opening. It’s like our very own Vaseline lip balm packaging (with a difference though). If you watch it closely, you will find nothing fancy or worth splurging in this packaging yet it stands unique and luxurious among all lip products. Since it provides both ease of application and a luxurious design, I love to have it in my handbag.
I also adore its light-weight and non-sticky texture which is totally different from any other stick or tube lip balms I have tried so far. I mean it is not thick and sticky like those tube lip balms but then it is also not oily or slippery in consistency. I find it perfect in texture and consistency as it gives a nice sheen to my lips without leaving any heavy, oily or sticky residue on lips.
I won’t say that it is unique because we do get lip balms with innovative formulas now a days, which work more or less like this lip treatment. But, then we get them at equally higher price too. I feel once you wear it, you get to know that it is AmorePacific because they nearly nail it with their pampering & luxurious touch in every product, be it a lip balm or any skin care product. Every decent lip product can provide you nourished and well hydrated lips, but who doesn’t love an extra touch of luxury! Or, an extra touch of pampering, regardless of price?
Talking about the performance, I normally suffer from slightly dry lips; call it a weather change or lack of hydration! And this lip treatment gave me pretty even lip texture without any dry patches on the lips, right from the day 1 of usage. Moreover my lips well hydrated and plumped up as long as I wear this balm on my lips; my lips remain soft and supple even after the balm fades away. Now talking about their other claim, “bringing rosy glow to lips”, it is definitely true up to a good extent as I see a pretty healthy, pink and natural shine on my lips.
I need it twice a day as I am obsessed with wet, juicy lips hence even if my lips are well hydrated, I still need a gloss or a lip balm to keep them juicy and shiny all day long. However it is also necessary for me to use it twice a day like any usual lip balm. If I skip using lip treatment for a day or two, my lips will retain their dry texture much to my fear. But then it also depends upon our overall water intake and weather, hence a balm alone won’t help much if I am irregular with my water intake.
So if I am taking care of everything well, then all I need is this balm to keep my lips healthy, moisturized with a rosy glow. Even it works so well under any lip color or lip stain, considering it has a very lightweight yet long lasting sheen. I think that other than the whopping price there is nothing I feel concerned about even though it lacks the basic SPF content and other credentials.
If you are totally into luxury products, then you must try this one out; in fact if I have to choose between Bite Beauty one and this AmorePacific one, then I would always pick this Amorepacific lip treatment.
