Review: Labello lip balms (Repair & Beauty, Fruity Shine Cherry, Lip Butter Coconut)10:26
I am a lip balm addict and I know many of you are too. I use lip balms all year around, multiple times a day. But that's just me. My lips tend to get dry really quickly and there's nothing worse then your lips peeling off. Today I'll share three Labello lip balms and what do I think of them. You've probably all had some Labello product already. I know when I was a little, these were the first tinted lip products that I used and venture into the world of colored lips :).
Labello Repair & Beauty
This one is for those who need a bit more help than just your average moisturization. It has a dual system. The inner white part is suppose to help repair the lip surface. That's why it's meant for those who have chapped and dry lips. The outer pink part its suppose to add a little hint of rose color to the lips. It has a very interesting smell, which has a hint of mint to it. I also noticed that this lip balm tingles my lips. I'm almost certain there some sort of mint in the formulation, which I personally don't like. All in all, I think it's a good lip balm, but don't expect any major repairing. It's good if you're lips are slightly dry, but once chapped, I didn't find this helped all that much. It's almost better as a prevention method.
The packaging is a classic lip balm tube and there's 4.8 grams of product in it. It costs around 3.31€.
Labello Fruity Shine Cherry
This one impressed me the least. It's a tinted moisturizing lip balm. The scent is amazing, I won't deny that. It smells like those chewy cherry sweets - oh my god! Seriously amazing smell. It leaves light red color on the lips that also has some small silver shimmer in it. It's nothing disturbing. I find this formula the least moisturizing of all three. I prefer to use this over some drying red lipstick to add a bit of shine and moisture.
The packaging is a classic plastic lip balm tube. It's shiny and there's 4.8 grams of lip balm it it. It costs around 1.88€.
Labello Lip Butter Coconut
It may come as no surprise, that I like this one the best. Why? Well, it's coconut - need I say more?! I am obsessed with coconut smells and this lip balm doesn't disappoint. The coconut smell is really natural and nothing artificial. It's not overpowering and it just takes you onto tropical islands. I love love the smell. The formula is also not bad. If you put too much of it on, the lips start to look too white. That's probably due to the fact that it's a butter formula, which means it's a lot more heavy and moisturizing. I find that it does a nice job of mosturizing, although I only use it at home. The packaging is not the most appropriate to carry around and dip your dirty fingers in.
The packaging is metal can and there's 16.7 grams of lip butter in it. It costs around 2.50€.
The lip balms were send to me and I sure loved trying some Labello products, because I haven't been using them since I was, well, a lot younger. If you've tried any of these let me know how you like them. My favorite has to be coconut lip butter :). What's your favorite?
