Himalaya Lip Balm - Treat for Lips

Today I will be reviewing Himalaya Lip balm. A good lip balm is a “must” for any girl’s vanity. I use a lip balm throughout the year – the difference is the textures of the lip balms which vary with the season. I need a heavy duty lip balm like Nivea in winter bcoz they are absolute saviors from dry chapped lips in winter; although they are greasy and thick in texture they tend to last longer on my lips in winter. Rest of the year, I use nice light textured ones – and this lip balm from Himalaya is just perfect for summers.

PRODUCT - Himalaya Lip Balm
PRICE – 20 Rupees  (dirt cheap !)
QUANTITY - It is available in a tube of 10 gms.

COMPOSITION –  (from the website of Himalaya Herbals)

 Lip Balm contains the following ingredients:
Ricinus communis (Castor, Eranda) oil is used externally to relieve various inflammatory conditions of the skin and mucus membrane.
Cocos nucifera (Coconut, Narikela) oil extract is a good emollient and can be used externally for softening the lips. The oil extract is used in various cosmetics.
Triticum sativum (Common Wheat, Godhuma) oil is a rich natural source of vitamin E, which nourishes and prevents loss of moisture from the skin. It is used to tone and soften the lips. It has a potent antioxidant activity.
Wrightia tinctoria (Sweet Indrajao, Hyamaraka) leaves are used in various skin disorders including herpes. It has astringent and anti-inflammatory activities and is used as an antibacteial in several skin disorders.
Daucus carota (Carrot, Garijara) seed oil is used as a sunscreen and fragrance component in soaps, creams and lotions.


 I have been using this balm for a week now and it proudly rests on my dresser table for everyday use.  It comes in a tube like packaging with green screw cap. The slanted tip of the tube makes it convenient for easy application.  
I like the transparent gel like consistency of the balm which is light in texture.
I am also a huge fragrance junkie and this balm smells just divine of minty bubblegum like smell.
It does a nice job of nourishing dry and chapped lips.  Since it contains SPF factor.. it makes the lip balm perfect for use in summers too.
The price and the packaging are just a HIT !!  Super cheap and easy to carry around anywhere you go . .
This lip balm however will not work for me in winters when my lips become very dry.
This lip balm also gets over very easily since you need to re-apply it after every few hours.

Love it or chuck it?
Definitely worth a try – perfect for people who don’t suffer from super dry, chapped and cracked lips. It is perfect to use it in summers.

Have you tried this lip balm yet? What do you think ? 

Please note: The product sent by the company's PR for consideration.
