Goji berry is a good source of vitamins and minerals and, therefore, used as an ingredient in many beauty products like anti-aging creams, facial oils, masks etc. Goji berries contain a high amount of Vitamin C, which is known to support firming, tightening and protection of the skin. This is my first ever lip balm with Goji as the main ingredient. Sephora offers five more variants in this range in amazing flavours. Let’s see how it worked!
Price: $6 for 3.5 g
What it is:
A range of six lip balms, each with a different ingredient to nurture lips all day long.
Available in balm or scrub format, these addictive scent will meet any lip concern and boost every mood. Each of the five balms feature targeted ingredients for specific benefits. The lip scrub features gentle sugar exfoliants to smooth and soften lips, priming them for lipstick and other lip products.
Goji Lip Balm: Nurtures and protects.
Octyldodecanol, polybutene, dipentaerythrityl tetrahydroxystearate/tetraisostearate, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, butyrospermum parkii butter (butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)), polyethylene, vp/hexadecene copolymer, diisostearyl malate, cera microcristallina (microcrystalline wax), glyceryl behenate/eicosadioate, dicalcium phosphate, synthetic wax, fragrance, hydrogenated vegetable oil, ci 77891 (titanium dioxide), helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, ci 15850 (red 7 lake), mica, ci 45380 (red 22 lake), ci 19140 (yellow 5 lake), limonene, lycium barbarum fruit extract, tocopherol, citric acid.
The balm arrives in a cute pink tube. The twist up packaging is very easy to use and tight enough to keep the product safe and clean. Overall, the packaging is chic and light.
It adds a hint of pink to the lips. It leaves behind a delectable light pink tinge, which is perfect for wearing every day without looking gaudy.
The lip balm is infused with Goji extracts to protect and moisturise the lips. The formula is creamy upon application and feels smooth and silky on the lips.
My Experience with Sephora Collection Lip Balm Goji:
I am a person who must have lip balm in my pocket at all times for my dry and chapped lips. Finding a pocket-friendly balm with a delicious fragrance is always a priority for me. So, I picked this nicely priced beauty and I’m in love with it ever since I used it for the first time.
I have pigmented lips, so I don’t really require a pigmented lip balm. This balm adds a little shine to my lips. So, I find it perfect for daily use, for small outings or for days when lipsticks feel too heavy. Coming to the staying power, it stays for 2-3 hours.
The staying power, however, does not impress me that much as the product completely gets wiped off after a single meal, which is a usual drawback with most of the lip balms. Nevertheless, this lip balm moisturises the lips and imparts a natural glossy effect.
Pros of Sephora Collection Lip Balm Goji:
• Adorable packaging
• Delicious fruity fragrance
• The texture isn’t overly greasy or waxy
• Provides a smooth base for lipsticks
• Moisturizes chapped lips
• Decently priced
Cons of Sephora Collection Lip Balm Goji:
• Not highly pigmented
• Doesn’t survive even a single meal
IMBB Rating: 4.2/5
