Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

The concentrated formula goes a long way. Smooth on a thin coat under or over your lipstick, and reapply throughout the day. Heal dry lips overnight by applying a thick layer right before bed, or massage the balm into your cuticles to keep them supple.

I'm mixed on this one
Purchased

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.

softest lips ever
Purchased

I LOVE this lip balm! I have spent plenty of money on all kinds of lip products to help rid me of dried cracked, peeling lips. By Terry Baume de Rose is my lips savior and I have no need to look any futher for relief. The price that Birchbox is really good and I'm so glad I found it here!

Obsessed
Purchased

I really love this stuff. I was first introduced to it by a the Vanity Affair Limited Edition Box and have been a fan ever since. I save up my points to buy this (so the hefty price tag doesn't sting so much). It's a lovely light rose scent. It has the perfect texture and it gives my lips a dainty pink sheen. It's also great on the cuticles. I also think the packaging is totally glamorous. I wish I had known about this sooner...worth every penny.

Wonderful product
Purchased

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!

Im so sad that I didn't like this :(
Purchased

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.

I am OBSESSED

This product is my new favorite lip balme! The texture, the consistency, the scent, the taste, the color, AND the fact that it's SPF15?! I will never use another lip balme again - and THAT is saying ALOT. I am IN LIVE

It's growing on me

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.

Yes, it's as good as they say....
Purchased

This product truly deserves it's reputation. Cleanly made, naturally scented with the rose oil it contains, it s also fun to put on. The kind of product we should , if it were more affordable, have by our bedside, in our desk at work, and in every coat pocket!
