BY TERRY

Birchbox Breakdown

When BY TERRY created this nourishing balm back in 2003, the brand 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 precious actives. Pure rose essential wax smoothes away roughness, while shea butter doubles the formula'’s moisturizing powers, bio-ceramides undo the look of fine lines, and lipid spheres help skin retain hydration. Plus, it also works as a luxe nail treatment for dry cuticles.

How to Use

The concentrated formula goes a long way. Smooth on a thin coat under or over your lipstick, and reapply throughout the day. Heal dry lips overnight by applying a thick layer right before bed, or massage the balm into your cuticles to keep them supple.

Amazing!!
Purchased

I was skeptical of this product at first because it was a total impulse buy. And after wondering if I just wasted sixty dollars I finally tried it and I can't get enough!! Before this I was a carmex and burts bee's kinda girl, but now all I ever want to use is my baume de rose! The only flaw this product has is the price 60 dollars! Outrageous! I'm a high school student on a tight budget (saving for a car) and the only reason I bought it in the first place was because I got a discount that made it only 40 and thought might as well, but I think the product will last me awhile so for this reason I will probably purchase again.

I'm mixed on this one
Purchased

Well...I'd heard the amazing reviews on this lip baum and desperately wanted to try it out. Upon opening the cap, the first thing I noticed was the strong scent of artificial roses. I'm a migraineur so it was not a smell that agrees with me. The product is creamy and easy to apply. It's definitely hydrating but it seems about as good as a quality chapstick that I could purchase at Whole Foods for $5.00. I do not feel as though it is worth spending $59.00 for this product. It is hydrating however, there is no wow factor on this. I prefer using Jason's vitamin D oil right on my lips, it's just as good for $10.00.

So... I don't dislike it per say, but I don't love it either. For $59.00 I have to love it to buy it again.

Can't. Live. Without. This
Purchased

So, know you have to practically sell a kidney to afford this, but it is amaze-balls. I rarely buy lip balm twice (I'm too much of a junkie to not want to try something new every time) but I'm on my second jar. There will be a third and fourth, no doubt. I use it mostly at night - the scent is very relaxing and it gives my lips a nice coat to get through the night. But I did decant a portion into a smaller, empty container and I've been carrying it in my purse for lip emergencies. This is one of those luxuries you owe yourself.

Love the scent!
Purchased

I highly recommend this product to anybody who suffers from dry lips. My lips were so dry that they were peeling and looked so dry. I apply the lip balm overnight and went I woke up my lips were like new. My lips were softer.

Good but is it worth it?
Purchased

Don't get me wrong--I LOVE this product, but is it worth the price tag? I don't think so. I wouldn't buy it again. But it does feel amazing and smells like roses. If you're wanting to splurge on a lip balm, this is great, but I don't think it is life changing enough to recommend to everyone!

So unimpressed

This was gifted to me from a friend of mine. #1) the price... holy wow. With high price, comes high expectations. (Which unfortunately were far from met) It seems like many people rave about this balm = confused. #2) The smell... so unappealing in my opinion. It smells like straight up roses that would be in your grandmother's bathroom. #3) vaseline does more of the trick than this stuff. Luckily, I wasn't the one who spent $60.00 on it.

Confused
Purchased

I'm an easy sell and cult items are never lost on me. I love a good indulgent product but this was lackluster. The rose scent was nice and the texture lovely but it did nothing for my chapped lips..... For the cost I just don't get it. The scent alone is not enough. A nice heavy lip cream. That's it.

Love it!
Purchased

Love it. You get what you pay for. This stuff is amazing and a little goes a long way. It's a little pricey but it can last you almost a full year. It also works great for cuticles. I use for my lips, cuticles and as a blush.

Lovely lip balm
Purchased

This is a lovely lip balm, the scent of rose is there but not to strong , i so love this balm, I reach for it all the time , I keep this in my car which is so handy when I am travelling around , only one wish is that it was in a tube form , it's just that opening the lid and putting my hand in it is not too comfortable for me , but that doesn't stop me from using this amazing hydrating product for lip

good but not great

I really enjoyed the scent of this balm and the fact that it has sunscreen within it. It is thick and provides a lot of moisture right off the bat. However, I don't feel like it lasts very long. I like it, but I feel like I have to combine it with gloss or lipstick to make its wear last longer.
