The beauty blogger in me said the lip balm should come along with the lip scrub as they are both from the Mango Seed range and they would be a nice lip care pair in my vanity. Read on to know how this baby fared for me.
Price – Rs 600/- (approx.)
• Creates strong moisture veil to remain moisturized lips for hours without stickiness.
• Apply a moderate amount to dry and chapped lips from inside to outside lips gently.
My Experience with The Face Shop Mango Seed Lip Care 02 Honey:
The packaging is typical plastic twist up body with cap. The body has some information about the product. There was a protective transparent cover which I ripped off on the very first day. There is nothing much to say about the packaging as it is just a normal one.
The texture of the balm is very smooth, it kind of melts on touching the lips. I personally do not like over moisturizing lip balms as they feel slippery and uncomfortable to me. No doubt it moisturizes really well and the effect stays for a pretty long time, but the consistency is not my favorite.
It appears super glossy on the lips, so you have to either blot it or give it some time to settle if you want to use it as a base for lipsticks. The balm is pretty yellow in color but obviously comes off as a transparent one on the lips. Though the range says Mango Seed, the variant is Honey and it smells very much like raw honey. I do not dislike it really but do not like it either. It is an average basic lip balm for me with a very high price tag.
Pros of The Face Shop Mango Seed Lip Care 02 Honey:
• Simple twist-up packaging.
• Glides well.
• Long lasting effect.
Cons of The Face Shop Mango Seed Lip Care 02 Honey:
• Smell is overpowering.
• Expensive for a lip balm.
• Slippery if applied more.
• Takes a while to settle.
