The Face Shop Lip Care Stick Pomegranate Grenade Review

I have a lot of skin issues – some are real and some are just exaggerated in my mind. Dry lips are; however, the monstrous skin concern that I have. Apart from mascaras, I also hoard lip balms because my lips are extremely dry and most balms that I have tried are not hydrating enough for me and barely add any moisture to my lips. I have tried lip balms from most drugstore brands and they failed to impress m, so I added a few lip balms to my Korean skin care haul, and this review is going to be on The Face Shop Lip Care Stick Pomegranate Grenade.

My Experience with The Face Shop Lip Care Stick Pomegranate Grenade:

I bought this product because I love the skin care products from the brand The Face Shop – they are affordable, have favorable ingredient list, and most of the time prove satisfactory. The product comes in the usual stick, lip balm packaging. The product is in a tube form and can be dispensed by the twist-up motion.

This lip balm has a very subtle fragrance but does not resemble pomegranate scent,  nevertheless, it is a pleasant fragrance and vanishes soon after. The texture of the balm is slippery and resembles lip balms from Dove and Vaseline; the kind that after application, leaves a sheen on the lips. It adds a pinkish tint to the lips and is obviously visible on the lips for a while.

I really like this lip balm but since my lips are so dry, they crave something more moisturizing and long lasting. The moisture content of this product is satisfactory but staying power could have been netter. Nevertheless, I do recommend it to those who do not crave extreme hydration or suffer from extreme dry skin. It cannot be used underneath a lipstick since it makes matt or liquid lipstick application difficult because of its slippery texture.

Pros of The Face Shop Lip Care Stick Pomegranate Grenade:

  • It is an affordable lip balm and comes in a nice packaging which does not require constant dipping of fingers into a jar.
  • This range also has a lip scrub and can be bought to complement the lip balm.
  • Subtle fragrance which vanishes soon after application.
  • This lip balm has a sweet taste.
  • Provides a moisture barrier and hydration to lips.
  • It can be used as lip gloss, especially for college-going people since it adds sheen and tint to lips.

Cons of The Face Shop Lip Care Stick Pomegranate Grenade:

  • The staying power is not that impressive.
  • It does not smell of pomegranate.
  • If used under lipstick, it makes lipstick application difficult because of its slippery texture.
  • It is not just enough for someone who has extremely dry lips and needs an extra boost of moisture.

I do recommend it to all those out there who regularly wear lip balms and love to hoard them. It will serve the purpose of a good lip balm well. I wish it had a better staying power and smelled more like pomegranate.
