Today, I shall be reviewing a lip balm by L’Occitane. Having heard Rati rave so much about this brand, I bought quite a few things for me from the same brand. I must add that the shampoo and the conditioner is awesome, but the lip balm turned out to be quite a dud. Let’s take a detaliled review of the same:

Price/ Packaging/ Quantity:
INR 700 for 15 ml. It comes in a silver-aluminium tube with a blue-coloured screw cap. I did not like the packaging at all as the tube cannot be put to the lips directly owing to the sharp edges of the metal being used.

My Experience with L’Occitane En Provence Lip Balm – Cocoa Flower:
Well, I have mentioned in the beginning itself that this one turned out to be a dud. It is a thick, transparent balm which spreads very easily on the lips and feels very light as if nothing was put. It smells heavenly of chocolate and cocoa, so it is a treat for all chocolate lovers. My 3-year-old niece is after my life to put this balm on her lips whenever she sees me applying this because of the taste and smell of chocolate. It does brings an instant shine which stays for 15- 20 minutes or till the time you eat something, whichever is earlier. It did not make my lips soft which I would expect a lip balm from L’Occitane to do. Also, it contains bees wax and shea butter, so it should have been a boon to the lips. On the contrary, my lips were unaffected. I might as well add that despite such wonderful ingredients, it could not do anything for my dry and chapped lips. I even had it overnight to test the efficacy, but again, in the morning, my lips did not feel soft or healed. All in all, it is good only for its flavour.

Pros of L’Occitane En Provence Lip Balm – Cocoa Flower:
- Smells and tastes deliciously nice of chocolate.
- Contains shea butter and bees wax and all other ingredients which have been derived through organic farming.
- Brings a shine to the lips, but that’s again for a very short period.
Cons of L’Occitane En Provence Lip Balm – Cocoa Flower:
- Firstly, it didn’t make my lips soft, neither did it heal the dryness.
- Secondly, I have paid an exorbitant amount for the quantity, so I would expect at least some result, but nothing happened at all.
- It is a limited edition lip balm.
- Packaging could be worked upon.
