BY TERRY

Birchbox Breakdown

When BY TERRY created this nourishing balm back in 2003, they had no idea it would gain cult classic status so quickly. A favorite of Parisian models and Hollywood actresses, the daily essential plumps and soothes chapped lips with a blend of rose wax and other precious actives. Plus, it doubles as a luxe nail treatment for dry cuticles.

How it Works

The creamy treatment smells like a fresh bouquet of roses and leaves skin unbelievably soft. Pure rose essential wax smoothes away roughness, while shea butter amps up the formula’s moisturizing powers. Bio-ceramides are engineered to undo the look of fine lines, and lipid spheres help skin retain hydration. Bonus: UV filters provide a much-needed dose of sun protection.

How to Use

The concentrated formula goes a long way. Smooth on a thin coat under or over your lipstick, and re-apply throughout the day to keep your lips looking their best. You can also heal dry lips overnight by applying a thick layer right before bed or massage the balm into your cuticles to keep them supple.

Best lip gloss ever
Purchased

Buy this gloss! It smells good, lasts forever and really moisturizes deeply. Plus, its not too sticky - your hair won't attach to you lips in the wind!! The bottle is easier to carry than the jar, but either or, you won't be disappointed.

Disappointing
Purchased

I was so eager to love this. The reviews made it sound magical. For almost $50 this was not worth it. Didn't last, and the color was nil to being a pink that had too much blue on it. Sadly returned it.

Happy purchase
Purchased

I bought this after reading all the rave reviews and seeing this on multiple list for best lip product. It's a pricy item even with using my points so it was kind of a little luxury splurge for myself. The tube was larger than I had expected so I was happy about that. This gloss is thick and gives your lips a nice sheen it's not sticky and the taste is not noticeable The scent on the other hand is rose. It's not typical of lip products it's not bad it's just different I'll have to wait a little while to see how the balm effects my winter lips to have a final verdict if it's worth the price

My new favorite (despite the cost)!
Purchased

Okay, first and foremost...yes, this is an expensive product. I went back and forth on whether to actually purchase it (delaying the completion of my purchase by a number of days). In the end, I went for it - and, boy, am I glad I did! This is my new favorite lip product and my go-to for all situations, all day long. I put it on in the morning, apply it while I'm at work, and again before bed. My lips feel great (a huge surprise, now that cold weather has hit). I will be buying another tube once I use this one, and am considering the pot of balm to keep by my bed.

AMAZING
Purchased

I love this rose infused lip gloss and I carry it with me every day! The texture of the gloss is beautiful and goes on easily. My lips feel really good when I apply the gloss. The rose smell is lovely and not too heavy. I have also given this gloss as a gift to friends. They always report back that they love this gloss. It is $$$$ but I feel like I use it all and never let it go to waste so it is worth the extra $$.

Hydrates dry lips overnight
Purchased

By Terry Baume de Rose SPF 15 really works on a problem I have had for a long time by keeping me lips from getting too dry. I use it every night, so I do not miss out on its magic. I also use during the day, before I put on my gloss. Plus, it stays on!

Looks good, but doesn't moisturize
Purchased

I loved the way that this lip gloss looked on but I found myself reapplying it constantly because my lips would dry out.
