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.
I'm a bit of a lip balm buff, so I was really excited about trying this. The price is crazy steep, so I waited to purchase it until I could get it for $20 + oodles of Birchbox points. I can't say I'd purchase it again. While it lasts for a really long time and feels quite good while it's on, it didn't do any of the miraculous lip healing it claimed in the description. I've been using it for a couple of weeks and my lips still feel the same level of chapped when it has worn off. I use a nice thick coating of it every night, and I reapply it every morning. When I have it nearby I apply it during the day as well. Definitely not worth $60 in my opinion.3
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.
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.5
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.5
I wanted to love this because of the raves I heard about it and the price tag but it is nothing more than a rose scented lip balm. :-( Using neosporin lip balm is better than the Baume de Rose and it only costs about $3. I am hesitant to try any other By Terry products now. If I could return this I would.1
Less than impressed by this lackluster brand. I figured for $60, I'd at least be pleasantly surprised by either the product or the housing. Sadly, I was disappointed by both. The product itself is sticky. I've seen better $2 lip balms. The top of the pot is silver painted PLASTIC. The bottom is glass...why not make the top metal?? Instead of just looking like metal?! For $60 a company definitely should be able to at least do that. Overall, don't buy this. It's overhyped and honestly I like Burts Bees lip balm much better. Try the coconut and pear.2
This product is fabulous - I am hooked. I need to order one for the office and one for home. I have to carry this in my bag so I always have it available! I do love to use on my lips, but do not suffer from chapped lips. But I have always had a problem with dry cuticles. I have used many cuticle products and this is the ONLY thing that has ever provided healing and relief!
Everyone NEEDS this in their life!
I read such amazing reviews about this product.... And they were all correct. The price scared me for a long time, but I saved Birchbox points and got it at a great price. Now having it, I don't think I could live without it! My lips are the worst. My husband says I have scaly lips. After using this one time, my lips are soft and smooth! I will definitely spend the money to replace it when I run out!5
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.5
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!4
