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 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.
Based on other reviews I expected this to be a wonderful, miracle product. It was not. On the good side, smell is not strong and is actually kind of nice. On the bad side, it is sticky and actually made my lips more dry than they already were. I've given it many tries and every time I use it, my lips end up cracking and peeling. Back to Vaseline.1
I expected a $65 lip balm to be a miracle remedy for my dry lips, but unfortunately, it worked no better than the $3 drugstore brand lip balms. The scent was lovely, but I'd never pay $65 for the same effects I can get for $3.2
I was in love with this product when it came as a sample in my Birchbox, and ready to go right online to purchase a full-sized bottle....BUT WHOA! I was stopped dead in my tracks by the price! Really expensive for a lip product! So if you can afford it, I definitely recommend it, but I guess I'll stick with regular chap stick for now...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 so appreciate getting to try such an expensive product. While I really did not like the scent, especially on my lips I am trying to give it a good try. So far I haven't been overly impressed but still am happy I get to try an extra product.3
It was a very small sample to see if I liked it or not. I love that birchbox will place extra to make up for a small sample thank you for that.3
I received this balm in my vanity affair box and it is great and does an awesome job of nourishing my lips and cuticles in the colder months. Although it doesn't stay on very well for the duration of the day and multiple applications may be necessary, I do believe it to be very effective.4
I love the smell...roses but faint. such a cute container and I just feel like Im doing something great for my lips. Also I put on my cuticles for some shine. Must have!4
This is a wonderful lip product! It keeps your lips so soft and moist. A bit expensive, but I would buy it again.4
This is expensive and dare I say, not totally worth it. You get a good amount of balm, the container is not tiny. It has a thick consistency that is more gel like, than say, a beeswax based balm. I find that if I use it before bed, it gets gooey and weird by the morning. I prefer to use it in my normal makeup routine.
If you must have something rose balm, I recommend Jurliques Love Balm in rose, you can typically find it for less than a ten spot and it is awesome. I found a pot balm from Japan called rose honey and it was by far the closest to this byterry balm with out the hefty price tag. Sadly, it is next to impossible to get here .
