Boots Essentials LipSalve Collection
I was cleaning up my cupboard and was about to bin some items. Then, I thought I would review them before dumping them. So, here it is – I will be reviewing the Boots Lipsalve collection.
The Boots Essential Lipsalve collection is made up of 4 variants:

1. LipSalve Original.
2. LipSalve Spearmint.
3. LipSalve Strawberry.
4. LipSalve Tinted.
My Experience With Boots Essentials LipSalve Collection:
A few months back, while on a visit to the local Boots, I picked up three of these Lipsalves. There was an offer 🙂 Three for the price of two. Even though I have a stock of my favourite Himalaya Lip Balms, I couldn’t help but pick these. Lip balms, sanitizers and wipes are three things you will find lying in every room in the house and also in every bag that I carry.

I had picked up the Original, Spearmint and the Tinted one.
The Original one has SPF 15. It’s smooth, un-fragranced and you don’t feel like you have applied a lip balm at all, keeps the lips moisturised for a good 2-3 hours.
The Spearmint one is similar to the Original one in terms of texture, feel and staying power, but it doesn’t have SPF15. It has an awesome fragrance though – spearmint. It smells just like Wrigley’s Spearmint Gum. However, the smell doesn’t stay for long, 5-10 minutes and you no longer get any smell. I also wonder why did they have to remove the SPF15? Adding fragrance doesn’t mean you should do away with some other good feature. 🙁

Last (and in this case definitely the least), the Tinted Lipsalve. It neither has SPF15 nor any fragrance and the texture is just awful. It is supposed to enhance your natural lip colour. However, all it does is leave a pinkish white coat on the lips, just awful. I have used it only once and it was so horrible that it never saw the daylight again until today. It’s going to the bin – where I feel it belongs.

Pros of Boots Essential Lipsalve
– Like the packaging, easy to carry and apply.
– Good price.
– Original one has SPF 15.
– Dermatologically tested.
Cons of Boots Essential Lipsalve:
– The Tinted one is awful. They need to change this one or do away with the product completely.

I may pick up the Original and Spearmint once again and will also like to try the Strawberry one, but the Tinted one, I do not want to get anywhere close to it 🙂
