11 Oct VLCC Lovable Lips Cherry Lip Balm !
Dry, chapped lips are a common problem we all face during cold winters. It makes one feel uncomfortable. Drink lots of water and invest in a good lipbalm to prevent dehydration. Don ‘t let your flaky lips turn you down. Instead make them super soft and kissable.
I have an ample collection of lip balms. If you are following me on Instagram, you would have seen my post on the goodies received from VLCC India. I have already reviewed the VLCC Kajal and VLCC Cacti Litchi Facewash here. Today, I am reviewing their Lovable Lips Lip Balm in shade Cherry.
Product Claims – VLCC Lovable Lips Cherry Lip Balm:
A cherry-flavored, tinted lip balm infused with the goodness of Jojoba Oil that dresses and caresses your pout in one sweep to make it luscious, lovely and lovable. Pronounced as “ho-ho-ba”, jojoba oil is one of the richest natural conditioners that the tropical forests have to offer. It has numerous beauty benefits and is perhaps the best known plant-based lip hydrater and soother. Jojoba oil, which is chemically similar to skin’s natural oil, heals chapped lips and seeps in to restore moisture and texture from within smooth, supple lips. VLCC has whisked together the benefits of this vitamin E-rich oil with nourishing almond oil and SPF to create this range of delectable sun-safe, pout perfectors in 6 pretty hues.

My Take on the Product:
Firstly, I love the chic packaging of VLCC Lovable Lips Cherry Lip Balm. It’s simple but elegant. What I like the most is its eye-catching label which is so pretty. The lipbalm comes in a standard twist up tube. It is easier to carry in your hand bag. You can add a dash of color on your lips without having to dunk your finger in a tub, which I think is hygienic and makes for easy application. The colour of the packaging also reflects the flavour you have which is again great.
Available in Eight shades, these VLCC Lovable Lips Lip Balms are nourishing and hydrating on the lips. It leaves a sheer pigment with just a hint of colour. Those with pigmented or pale lips may find the shades very slight. The lipbalm is soothing and doubles as a sheer lipstick on my minimal makeup days. The Sun protecting factor is an added advantage during hot summer days.
I feel the price is economic enough and I am surprised that these comes in so many different variations. The lipbalm is light weighted and doesn’t feel particularly oily or sticky. The scent isn’t overwhelming. I love the pleasant fruity smell. This lip balm is too soft and melts down quickly due to heat. So, I always keep it refrigerated.
The moisturizing effect could have been better for repairing chapped effect. Also, staying power is less than a hour. Its okay because we can always reapply it. I really like this lip balm and I think I’ll buy the rose one soon.
