I’ve been hearing about the Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm from beauty bloggers all over the net. As I went to my local drugstore, I found out that the local Maybelline counters unfortunately carry a different version of the Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm. The ones that are sold in the US are supposed to be tinted while the ones sold here are barely tinted.
The product is a lip balm in form of a stick with a packaging that is made out of plastic. It claims to last up to 8 hours and to rejuvenate the lips in one week. It contains the essence of centella which is an herb that has been used in China, India, and Indonesia for thousands of years. The essence of centella is supposed to be able to let the product reduce fine lines, increase elasticity, and increase suppleness.
I purchased my Maybelline Bably Lips lip balm in smoothing cherry.
What I Love:
I like how the graphics of the tube makes the lip balm look so young and fun! The youthful packaging really makes the whole product look very appealing. It smoothens my lips to a certain extent. I also like that it comes in 4 different flavours. All of which have really catchy names such as: smoothing cherry, energizing orange, anti-oxidant berry, and relieving menthol. This lip balm is also very affordable at PHP79 a pop!
What I don’t like:
Although it significantly moisturizes my lips, I feel like other lip balms have done a better job at moisturizing my lips. It did not really last all day on my lips but I don’t really mind reapplying. I’m also not a big fan of the scent/taste of this lip balm but this is a very minor complaint on my part. Lastly, the flavor did not really taste anything like the typical cherry flavored candies or lip products that I’m used to. haha!
Although this lip balm should improve on the moisturizing department, I still like it overall.I believe that a girl can never have too many lip balms! I keep lip balms everywhere. I have a lip balm in my make up kit, my pencil case, my vanity, and other similar strategic places because I tend to mysteriously lose lip balms all the time. teehee!
I recommend this to those who are looking for flavored lip balms while I would not recommend this to those who get bothered with scents and flavors easily. I also would recommend this to those who have naturally hydrated lips. I think one of the reasons why this product did not work very well with my lips is because I have extremely dry and chapped lips.
This product isn’t a total bust and it’s still something that I’ll use. It’s not something I’ll repurchase though because I have tried others that have smoothened out my lips more effectively.
