Skin tone: Fair to wheatish with yellow undertones
How are you all? The festive season is going to begin. I wanted to be ready for it. I have pigmented lips from a few months because of sheer negligence towards my skin care. I saw this Biotique Bio White Whitening Lip Balm and thought to give it a try. Let’s check out how effective it is.
Price: Rs. 150 for 5g
Product Description: Fruit has been the elixir of life since the beginning of time, rich in vitamins, nutrients and skin brighteners. This de-pigmentation balm visibly lightens lips for a fairer skin tone.
Shelf Life: 3 years
My Experience with Biotique Bio White Whitening Lip Balm:
Biotique Bio White Whitening Lip Balm comes in a small cardboard packing. It has a twist-up mechanism. The tube is in white colour with light pink and green accents. The packaging is very sleek and convenient to use and carry as well. The cap is sturdy and holds up tight. The twist-up mechanism works fine and the lip balm goes down completely. Overall, full points on packaging as it’s quite handy. It easily fits into pocket and handbag.
The application is very smooth and also pretty hygienic as you don’t have to apply it with your finger. The balm is pink in color and gives a light pink color to the lips. It just provides a nice sheen to the lips. It is very smooth to apply. The formula is quite light on the lips. The formula provides a decent amount of hydration to lips and never makes them dry.
It doesn’t feel uncomfortable on the lips. The pigment is not so good; it looks patchy and if you apply it 3-4 times it looks cakey and weird. It has fruity bubble gum kind of fragrance, which I didn’t like. I used it at bedtime. It didn’t lighten my lips at all. I can’t go out applying this as it looks really tacky. I have used it under lipstick. It is only useful to be applied at bedtime. But, I will get better lip balms than this for that purpose.
Overall, it fails at lightening the pigmented lips and also in colour payoff. The colour is not enough to hide the pigmented lips. I don’t know what to do with it now. There are so many lip balms in the market which are far better than this lip balm within the same price range. I haven’t tried other lip balms from Biotique, I gave it a try because it is a herbal brand and claims to lighten the pigmented lips. I think I have to rely on home remedies till I find a lip balm which actually lightens the lips. I will use it under lipstick and at bedtime. Except that, I didn’t find any use of it. It’s such a dud product. Really regret buying this.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Biotique Bio White Whitening Lip Balm?
No, I am not going to purchase it again neither I am recommending this. It doesn’t lighten the pigmented lips as it claims. The poor pigment of the balm makes it of no use. I think you can skip it.
