Himalaya Herbals Lip Butter

One more addition to my collection of lip balms and chapsticks - Himalaya Herbal's lip butter. I have used a variety of lip balms and chapsticks before - but this lip butter is the first one I  have ever used. Hence I was very curious when I received this one for review purposes.

What's the difference between Lip Balms and Lip Butters ? 

The skin that cover's our lips are without the oil glands that prevent drying out the skin so we need to keep them moisturised and healthy at all times.

Lip Balms are more waxy in consistency that help prevent chapping,drying or cracking of lips.

Lip butters are thicker in consistency and contain no artificial ingredients. They are more moisturising than the lip balms.

PRODUCT: Himalaya Herbals Lip Butter
QUANTITY: 10 gms

What the product claims? 

A unique and luxurious blend of exotic butters that provides nourishing care,keeping your lips supple,smooth and healthy all day long.

Cocoa Butter, Sal Butter, Kokum Butter, Mango Butter.

My take on the Product: 

I am a basic kajal, eyeliner and lip balm/gloss person for most of the days. Hence it is obvious I have a stack when it comes to lip balms and chapsticks. 

When I first eyed this product - I was very curious to use it because I had never used a lip butter before. So when I used it for the first time I definitely loved it because it is perfect for winters.

This product comes in a transparent tub like packaging with a green screw cap lid. If you open the lid, inside there's a white lid that fits into the mouth of the tub. It prevents the butter from drying out I guess.

I love the cocoa butter smell of the product.

The consistency of the lip butter is obviously very thick which makes it perfect for winter when my lips dry out immensely. I apply this butter before going to bed every night to find my lips moisturised and soft the next morning.

The lip butter stays on for hours after application which I like !!

The quantity provided is quite a lot - the product will stay for a long time.

What I dislike about the Product: 

The price - It is expensive. Himalaya Herbals generally have affordable products.

You can't apply this lip butter during summers and other season - the thick consistency just won't work out in humid weather of Mumbai.

Also I hated it when it caused my hair to stick to my lip butter on the lips. I found that very irritating.

The product lacks SPF.

I personally do not prefer tub- like packaging. Dipping your fingers into the product is just very messy.

Love it Or Chuck it ? 

I am in a love - hate relationship with this one. WHAT ABOUT YOU ???

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