Review: Jurlique Lip Care Balm is a protective and moisturising lip care product. My first impression of this lip balm was that it is has a very oily texture, which I found to be too oily for my liking. Lip Care Balm can be applied as a general lip balm, or can be added over the top of lipstick. During my trial, I used this as just as a lip balm, and applied it several times a day, every time my lips were feeling dry. While a good portion of the balm was absorbed into my lips, a lot of the product sits on the lip surface, resulting in a shiny appearance and a slippery feeling. The product has a really pleasant smell, which is a combination of the numerous natural ingredients, including Chamomile, Jojoba, and a number of other essential oils. While I like the fact that this is an all natural product, I expected it to have less ingredients than other non-natural comparable brands. So I was shocked to discover it contained a list of over 35 ingredients. Castor Oil is listed as the first ingredient, explaining why Lip Care Balm feels so greasy. I was disappointed to find that this natural lip balm, which should give a more moisturising and protective result, does not deliver the hydrating results I was hoping for when compared to other lip balm products on the market. Overall, I did not like the texture of this lip care balm, and did not feel that it moisturised my lips to the extent that I expected.
Tip: Lip Care Balm can be applied either using a cotton tip or just with your fingers.
