Review: ELF - Therapeutic Conditioning Lip Balm

They say ~ Salvation for parched lips. This innovative balm coats lips with natural nutrients and skin soothers to condition even the most sensitive lips. Infused with Shea Butter and Vitamins A & E for long lasting protection.

I say ~ Well I have to say I am a totally paid up member of the lipsalve addicts club so I know my lip balms. I actually won this one as a prize a while back, but if I hadnt I would have still bought it to try out their range of lip balms. The tube is a little longer and slimmer than an average lipbalm, I feel as if you are getting less product for your money too, as typically lip balms come in a 4g tube. Also with it being an all white stick it does make me feel a little self concious whipping it out in public.

The scent, I got the blackberry creme one and it is a nice light blackberry scent. Once applied to the lips the scent doesnt really linger, it feels really slick on the lips its quite nice though and you feel as if it is offering a theraputic condition. After a couple of minuite though it doesnt go away and feels a little bit greasy and while there isnt a taste its still a little bit too oily. It doesnt really sink in to the lips, just sits on top of them where as you would expect a conditioning one to sink in a sort out flaky dry lips. There is no taste or colour to this lip balm either.

Over all I dont mind this lipbalm but the packaging and scent arent anything special enough to make up for the odd overly greasy feeling left on the lip. And I wouldnt be encouraged to try out another scent.


£1.50 - 2g
