One of the skincare products that is a must for me is a lip balm. I don’t even know how many times I dab it on my lips. I have pretty dry lips and keeping them moisturized is a must for me and thus, I keep lip balms handy every time. I picked up a new lip balm from Dr organic and today’s review is all about Dr Organic Manuka Honey Lip Balm.
Price and Quantity: $6 for 5.7ml
A rich natural lip balm which utilises the unique repairing properties of Organic Manuka Honey to achieve a wonderful formula, perfect for moisturizing dry lips. The addition of nourishing Shea butter, Propolis, Beeswax and Vitamin E allows this balm to hydrate and protect lips exposed to wet and cold weather. Dr Organic Manuka Honey lip balm also provides SPF 15 protection from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.

My Experience with Dr Organic Manuka Honey Lip Balm:
The lip balm comes in a white twist up tube with an orange cap. The orange highlights on the body of the tube just match the cap. The cap and the tube below are sealed and this makes the product hygienic and sure that there have been no swatches. There is some information on the package and for everything else, you can check the website. The cap doesn’t close with a click but is tight enough to make sure that it doesn’t get loose in the bag. The twist is present at the top of the tube and it is easy to use.
The size of the lip balm is bigger than the ones normally available in the market. The lip balm is crimson yellow in color, similar to the color of the honeycomb. Since the product is made from Manuka Honey, this resemblance is nice. The packaging is neat and simple.
The lip balm is clear and smells like honey and tastes a bit sweet to neutral. The lip balm is clear and doesn’t impart any color to the lips. The lip balm is a bit thick and even though it doesn’t pull the lips, you can easily notice that it doesn’t glide very smoothly like the other balms. However, I have no issues with this. The lip balm feels very lightweight on the lips and doesn’t leave any greasy residue.
The lips feel very soft and smooth, post the application. The product doesn’t leave a white cast no matter how much you slather on. Since it is not greasy, the product makes for a perfect base for lipsticks. The lip balm instantly moisturizes dry lips and adds suppleness and fullness to them. The product also heals cracked lips and prevents further drying. The lip balm, once applied, creates a shield and protects the lips from drying and intensively hydrates the skin. It adds a pinkish hue to the lips.
The product moisturizes the lips for more than 8 hours; however, since I have very dry lips, I use it often. The product doesn’t cover any pigmentation or prevents darkening of the lips. The lip balm also consists of SPF 15, which is a plus. The lip balm is made with natural ingredients too and doesn’t contain SLS, parabens or artificial colorants. Overall, I love the lip balm. I have no negative to write about this product. For me, this wins my heart!
