Dry, dark, and pigmented lips is my biggest skin concern and it is evident by the several lip balms that I try and review 😛 I hoard lip balms and most of the balms that I try are not hydrating enough for me and barely add any moisture to my lips. I have tried lip balms from most of the drug store brands and Korean brands and still keep hunting for the ultimate lip balm that can satiate my dry lips. I am enjoy wearing this lip balm called Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Lip Oil Balm and I have only good things to say about it.
Highly concentrated lip oil balm provides intensive nourishment to extremely dry, damaged lips. Perfect for cracked and dry lips . Dermatologist tested.
My Experience with Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Lip Oil Balm:
I have used a few skincare products from Holika Holika and so far, this brand has not disappointed me. This is the first lip balm I have tried from this brand and it has convinced me to try out more lip care products from this brand.
The product comes in a tube packaging with a slant tip for easy application. The tube has a very basic appearance and serves its purpose well. The product has no fragrance and this is perfect for my pigmented lips. It contains ceramide. Ceramides, solid or waxy substances of lipid nature (sphingolipids), which together with cholesterol and fatty acids form a lipid barrier layer of the skin. If the surface of the skin is damaged, ceramides fill gaps resulting from washing out, reduce skin permeability, reduce water loss and improve the elasticity of the epidermis. This product does not contain artificial colors, artificial flavors, mineral oil, triethanolamine, talc, petrolatum, benzophenone.
This lip balm applied like a layer of oil and lasts for a good hour or two and has a long-lasting effect. It adds a shiny layer to lips and can be used as a skincare step only. If applied underneath a lipstick or a lip liner, it will cause the lipstick to slip and ruin the application. If applied on top of a lipstick, it will cause the color to spread and transfer.
This lip oil balm comes in a stick version as well. Holika Holika also offers other types of skin care products from this “Ceramide” range and I am looking forward to trying them in future as well.
Most lip balms disappoint me a bit because they don’t offer enough moisture to my lips, but this lip balm has fared better than most and I do recommend it to readers.
Pros of Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Lip Oil Balm:
- An affordable lip balm and comes in a tube packaging which keeps it sanitary (this is a not the case with the lip balms in tub packaging).
- A lip oil stick version is also available if that is a preferable option for some.
- It has no fragrance, which works great for me.
- Does not have an unpleasant taste (in fact it has not taste whatsoever).
- Perfect for those who shy away from petroleum-based products.
- Contains ceramides that form a lipid barrier layer of the skin. Reduces skin permeability, reduces water loss, and improves elasticity of the epidermis.
Cons of Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Lip Oil Balm:
- With Korean products, availability can be an issue for some (there are third party sellers’ who sell Korean brands).
- Can be used only as a skin care step but not underneath a lipstick because it will cause the product to slip.
Would I Recommend Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Lip Oil Balm?
I do recommend it to all those who regularly wear lip balms and love to hoard them. It provides appropriate moisture to lips without any harmful side effects of petroleum based ingredients.
