My Experience with Himalaya Herbals Sun Protect Orange Lip Care SPF 30 PA+++:
Himalaya Herbals Sun Protect Orange Lip Care SPF 30 PA+++ comes in a bright orange colour cardboard paper packaging. All the details are nicely described on the outer packaging. The outer cardboard packaging has the same colour pattern as it’s on the lip balm. The packaging does not contain any ingredients list. The lip balm tube is a simple retractable type. The cap close tightly thus making it travel-friendly.
The lip balm comes in a bullet packaging. The tube is orange is colour with matte silver base. The bullet is orange in colour. It is a sheer lip balm with no pigment. On hand swatches, it looks transparent as well on my lips. It looks natural and pretty on my lips. It feels buttery smooth and light on the lips. It glides on smoothly and it is non-sticky. It has a very sheer pigment which can’t hide the pigmentation on the lips.
The lip balm has a mild orange candy like fragrance. I love this mild scent so much because, I always love citrus fragrances more. So, for me, the fragrance is absolutely non-bothering. It stays for hardly 15- 20 minutes and fades away super quickly. The lip balm also comes with an SPF 30 PA +++, which is quite good and essential to keep your lips protected from harmful sun rays. It also claims to have 100% vitamin E and antioxidants. So, it will also take care of fine lines on the lips.
The formula is nice and moisturizing. It keeps my lips hydrated. It healed up my dry and chapped lips. The lasting power is somewhere around 4 hours with drinking. The lip balm does not survive any meal, but my lips do not feel dry even after the lip balm vanishes. Overall, it is a good product. With its sun protection properties, it can be used as a good base for lipstick. I am happy with this product as it is something you can apply on daily basis. It will give a natural look with caring for your lips.
