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
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.2
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.2
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'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
Like others before me I don't really get it. I'm a buyer of everything balm related, with chronically chapped lips, and a tendency for redness around the lips when chapped. I pulled the trigger finally on this after reading too many great reviews to resist much longer. Honestly, I think it's not worth the hype. I love the rose scent, and the consistency is nice, but not a holy grail product in the least. I'm sad to say it's just alright, and there are plenty of equally "luxurious" cheaper options out there.3
I like the consistency of this product and the lovely rose scent, but for me, it's just not worth the $60 price tag. Similar products for a fraction of the cost work just as well, which left me a bit disappointed. I will not be repurchasing it when I run out.3
I have been wanting to try this product. I'm medium-dark skin toned. This balm seems to be more suitable for lighter skinned / pinker lips.
I love the way it feels. But on my skin tone, it is probably not the best fit.
However, just for the amazingly gorgeous packaging, I would want to keep this in my bag :D
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
