BY TERRY

Birchbox Breakdown

When BY TERRY created this nourishing balm back in 2003, they 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 rose wax and other precious actives. Plus, it also works as a luxe nail treatment for dry cuticles.

How it Works

The creamy treatment smells like a fresh bouquet of roses and leaves skin unbelievably soft. Pure rose essential wax smoothes away roughness, while shea butter doubles the formula’s moisturizing powers. Bio-ceramides are engineered to undo the look of fine lines, and lipid spheres help skin retain hydration.

How to Use

The concentrated formula goes a long way. Smooth on a thin coat under or over your lipstick, and re-apply throughout the day to keep your lips looking their best. You can also heal dry lips overnight by applying a thick layer right before bed or massage the balm into your cuticles to keep them supple.

LOVE!

Love this balm! I am quite picky as far as lip balms go, and this one has surpassed them all. I got a small sample from the Vanity Affair box, but a little goes a long way. It leaves my lips feeling smooth and soft all day, and when I put it on before I go to bed I can still feel it by the time I wake up. Definitely a keeper.

So luxurious

Using this stuff makes me feel like a millionaire. It smells so good, and not that fake rose scent you get with most rose products. I use it before bed and wake up with super soft lips!

Expensive but worth it!

I know that this lip balm is crazy expensive, but let me tell you that I think its worth it. It last forever and really moisturizes it. I love that when I put it on at night I still feel it when I wake up. The smell is not overpowering and does go away after a short while. You definitely don't need a lot either, so it will take awhile to go through.

So pretty
Purchased

This lip balm is crazy expensive, I'm not even gonna front. BUT, it really makes your lips so soft and plump, and it's got the tiniest bit of pastel rose pink color that's just soooo pretty. It's universally flattering. Plus, you can't go wrong with it's gorgeous scent. I fell in love the second I put it on. By Terry is great, every product I've purchased from this company has worked wonders for me.

LOVE this balm

I have a thing for lip balms. I'm always in search of the most moisturizing but it has to feel good on and smelling/tasting good is a plus too. This By Terry balm is all of that and more. It simply feels like the most moisturizing, plumping balm ever, and the fact that it smells like roses puts it over the top. I will never be without this product again!

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.

By Terry Baume de Rose

This product is just divine. It's roses in a lovely little jar that nourishes both my nails and my lips. My cuticles desperately needed this product and have made a 360 degree turn around from dried up bitten cuticles to lovely and healthy nails as well. My bright manicurist has told me that my cuticles have to be healthy to produce healthy nails and she's been proven right by this lovely product. Thank you By Terry, I'm so glad you crossed the Ocean to bring your products to only two places as far as I know of. So keep coming to Birchbox since I like buying from the folks that introduce me to the BEST OF THE BEST. BRAVO!

Favorite Birchbox sample ever
SampledPurchased

This was in one of my very first boxes ever, a tiny little sample, and I love it. It smells great, moisturizes, and looks like gloss when I'm wearing it. I keep one by my bed and one in my purse, it's my favorite!
