I might have been watching Lord of the Rings when I wrote this blog post.
With a staggering amount of lip balms in my arsenal how could I ever remain loyal to just one? Since the end of May I have been using the Dior Creme de Rose after coveting it for months I handed over £20 for this pot of wonder and I haven't looked back since. There is a lot of hype surrounding this little beauty and much like the By Terry Baume de Rose these take luxury to another level.
The packaging was initially what drew me into this product I remember seeing it on Pinterest and it was love at first sight. Whilst I am quite the sucker for well designed products I need what is inside to live up to expectations to. I had heard of this lip balm several times on the world of YouTube but never really read anything on blogs about it so I was quite open minded about it. With the word rose being in the title you are obviously going to be pretty clued up on what to expect fragrance wise but it is just subtle enough to be noticed but nothing to overpowering so if you aren't the biggest fan of rose I would give this a sniff first.
It has the consistency a little like vaseline but it doesn't just disappear on the lips as soon as it is applied you can still feel it a good couple of hours later. You only need a small amount to make a difference a little certainly goes a long way with this making its cost per use easy on the purse strings. I use this in the mornings whilst I am applying make up so if I want to apply lipstick my lips are well conditioned and especially as were in the season of bold lips I don't get any nasty flakes. This is a lip balm and a half it has made such a difference to how my lips feel and look and to be honest I don't remember the last time I had chapped lips which used to quite an issue for me. Whilst I still reach for my Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream at night to give my lips an even greater dose of hydration I still would not be without this product. Whilst £20 is a lot of lip product just think about how much you a willing to spend on a lip stick that no lip care benefits at all. At the moment this product seems quite hard to get hold of an I am praying that this never gets discontinued so if somebody could give me some clarification about these rumours I would be very grateful.
What are your thoughts on such luxury lip balms like this?
