Blistex Lip Balm Review

Blistex Lip Balm

Hi all!
This is my first review and I hope you all like it. I pondered a lot about what product should I choose, and I thought this would be helpful to all ladies out there who have dry lips.

I never had extra dry lips but since the time I have started taking treatment for Acnes, my lips had become coarse. I could not use any lip product however moisturizing it may be. I discussed this problem with my dermat and she suggested me to use Blistex lipbalm. Since all the medicines prescribed by her costed a bomb, I thought this might not be less than 500 INR. But I was pleasantly surprised that I was of 95 INR only. My Doc had told me that it can heal any kind of dry lips, and is the best lip balm she had known. I had to trust her because anyways my lips were pleading for help! I had to give it a try.
Believe me; itโ€™s too good to be true. I am a hoarder of lipbalms and have them from every brand possible but since the time I have started using this lipbalm I have not touched any other from my kitty. Donโ€™t get misguided by its humble price, it can beat any lipbalm. Let me give you all the details.

Price and Quantity: 95 INR for 4.25 gms.
Packaging: It comes in a sturdy teal colored packaging.

Active Ingredients: Dimethicone, Oxybenzone, Padimate O
Uses: Helps prevent and temporarily protects chapped, cracked or windburned lips. Helps prevent sunburn. Higher SPF provides more sunburn protection.

Directions: Apply liberally and evenly before sun exposure and as needed. Discontinue use if rash or irritation occurs. Store in a cool place.
The medical store guy did not ask me what flavor I wanted and I never thought a medicated lipbalm would come in flavors. But I just noticed(while writing the review) that the flavor I have got is Regular. That does not matter to me anyways because I am so happy with this, flavor or no flavor.

Pros of Blistex Lip Balm

1. Cheap
2. Medicated product sans any color.
3. Doesnโ€™t alter the color of the lipstick.
4. Has SPF
5. Sturdy packaging
6. Has no flavor
7. Has a mild minty smell which is not bothering
8. Effective for 6-7 hours
9. Easily available in Medical stores.

Cons of Blistex Lip Balm

1. I did not find any to be honest

Final rating: 5/5
Will I repurchase: Always. Itโ€™s cheap and my emergency lipbalm.

  1. Ila.. Thanks for the nice review. And now I know why it is rated as the best lip balm. I read it somewhere that in an online report, blistex was rated as the best lip balm of all.

    1. Yes when I asked my doc who BTW charges a bomd(2000 INR), she suggested me this. I was thinking this would cost me very much as she said its the best lip balm in market. But I was surprised to find it in the nearby medical store and at this price!

  2. It contains dimethicone. I am afraid now of any silicones… However, I read on a website that Dimethicone has got an approval to be used in cosmetics and lotions etc because their molecular size prohibits it from entering your skin through the pores so it wont enter your body when applied on skin.
    what do the IMBB beauties have to say about it?

  3. Super ILA!!
    I am MAYBELLINE one ryt now..totally obsessed wit it…but after reading your review..i think I might give this a thought!!!

    1. Have this as a backup… when ur lips are super dry, just apply this and u will notice the difference and at this cost, it wont hurt to try. believe me, I am not a pusher but this one is a great thing to have!

  4. Yeahhhh!! Finally a lip balm with spf, cheap price n no weird smell! (yes I ditched neutrogena only coz of it’s smell!)
    ๐Ÿ˜€ Great review!

  5. Its available in India? Ila/Shivangi where do you live? Never seen it in Mumbai…not that I’ve searched for it. I was planning to ask me US resident friends to get it for me…

    1. I live in Pune and I got it at a small medical store near my place only. I also thought I wont get it easily but its not a trouble getting these!

    1. Get this dear! I think if I’ll repeat this ‘get this’ again, I will get beaten by u gals :), but its such a great thing that I cant help being pushy ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I also have a lot many but now I dont use any other balm! I had no idea they would be having flavours until I wrote the review ๐Ÿ˜›

  7. Great review…..I have been loving the Lotus Vanilla Lip Balm off late but would try this next !!

  8. hi Ila,
    Very nice review. I wanna ask something. Do you think it would be effective on my dark colored lips. Actually I m looking for smthing that can turn my dark brown lips into rosy pink ones, hope u will answer soon ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hey dear!
      TO be honest, I am not sure on this part, but since it has SPF it will help to some extent. I will confirm with my Doc on my next visit and let u know.

  9. I m using this lip balm now for 5-6 days regularly. Though its nice as a lip balm
    – it moisturises very well
    – & it stays really long. I apply it b4 going to bed & its still thr in d morning on my lips!!

    But 2 things
    – I feel a layer of it sitting on my lips all d time
    – its kind of hard, I mean it doesnt feel soft & smooth, and thr is no shine whatsoever.

    Though I like it as a lip balm but I prefer lotus herbals over it.
