Today, I am reviewing “It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm” in the variant “Pineapple”. Read on to know how it fared for me.

My Experience with It’s Skin Pineapple Macaron Lip Balm:
The packaging of the product is super cute. The lip balm comes in a bright yellow colored macaron shaped tub. The detailing on the packaging is so real that it looks like a real macaron. These lip balm tubs are so cute that I could not resist buying these. The lid of the tub is screw-on type and closes very securely. I don’t find any flaws with the packaging, but the tub type packaging is not really hygienic and I have to clean my hands properly before applying the lip balm. Overall, the packaging is so adorable and cute.
The lip balm looks sheer yellow in the tub, but it is actually a clear lip balm. It does not have any tint or colour in it. So, people with pigmented lips may not find it much interesting to use on a regular basis. I always apply a clear lip balm on my lips before applying the lipstick so that its shade does not interfere with the actual color of the lipstick. It only adds a healthy sheen on my lips. The soft sheen in the lip balm looks very natural and makes my lips look nourished and plumped. The lip balm smells heavenly. It has a sweet pineapple flavor to it. The smell lingers for a few hours and fades away gradually. The fragrance is so sweet and I absolutely love it. It does not smell too strong or bothering. These lip balms have become my favorite these days.
The texture of the lip balm is great. It is very smooth and creamy, and glides effortlessly on the lips without any drag. It kind of melts once it comes in contact with the skin. It keeps my lips soft and smooth for long. It is non-sticky and feels comfortable on the lips.
It does not have a thick and waxy texture. The only con of the lip balm I could point out is the non-SPF formulation. I usually prefer lip balms with sun protection, but since these are so adorable, I would really ignore that and keep them for indoor use.
The lip balm provides good moisturization to my lips and keeps them hydrated for long. It took away all the flakiness and dry skin patches from my lips. The long-term use of this lip balm has made my lip softer and free from any cracked or chapped skin. It is capable of providing enough hydration to very dry lips as well. The hydration this lip balm provides to my lips last for hours. But, I felt the moisturizing properties of this lip balm are not suitable for healing extremely dry lips in winters. The chocolate variant seemed to be more nourishing.
The hydration lasts for 6-7 hours on my lips when they are normal and not extremely dry. But in case of very dry and chapped lips, I need more frequent reapplications of this lip balm to heal my lips properly. Overall, I love this lip balm.
