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.
Ok, I wanted to love this product. I am all about everyday products (like lip balms) being special splurges. I was hoping this would be one of them. I think 60$ is crazy for a lipgloss, but I thought: hey, apparently its amazing. It'll make me feel special when I used it and its the best of the best - I want to try it. Unfortunately, I pretty much hate it. It has a milkiness to it color-wise that looks somewhat frosted on my lips (a look I despise because I feel like it makes me look trashy). Its very thick, but is not nourishing at all! In fact after using it as my only lip product for 3 days my lips started getting flakey again. I had finally cured my dry lips with NUXE rev de miel lip balm, which although thick and waxy in texture works incredibly well as both a barrier and in nourishing the lips. I guess I'll try to use it as a cuticle balm or something since I don't want to through away such a high end product...we'll see how that goes.1
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
This is a wonderful product. Smooth and applies nicely. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 due to price. It is expensive but so wonderful. Is a nice way to treat your lips!4
I have been using this for about a month and at first did not see what the hype was about but the more I use this balm the more I like it. It has a slightly sticky wax like consistency that feels creamy and soothing on the lips. It stays on most of the day and to me seems like it makes a barrier between my lips and the world. I tried to stop using it and found that my lips don't feel or look as soft, supple, and healthy as they did when this balm was in use. The only negative I have is the price.4
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
