The onset of winter brings with it the woe of chapped lips. I feel the need to apply a lip balm all through the day because my lips get chapped really badly. I’ve been using commercial lip balms till I discovered that there were natural ones in the market. I bought the cinnamon lip balm from Omved during one of my visits to their store recently. They have a mint lip balm too which I will purchase when I am done with the current one!
What I liked about this lip balm is that a little bit goes a really long way. The lip balm melts when your finger gets in contact with it, so you essentially have the oil of the lip balm on your fingers that you will need to apply on the lips.
You need to apply a thin layer of this lip balm to keep your lips hydrated. It has an offwhite colour and it transforms as a transparent colour on the lips. It has a very mild fragrance, almost negligible. The flavour of cinnamon stays on for less than 2 minutes. I use this lip balm all through the day.
I am not much of a lipstick person, but when I do apply a lipstick in the winters, I make it a point to apply a thin layer of lip balm and leave it on for at least a minute before I apply the lipstick. This helps to keep my lips hydrated.
This small tin of lip balm weighs 8 gms and is priced at Rs. 250. It has a shelf life of 15 months. Since the tin is small, you can keep this in your purse or your jeans and jackets (what I normally do!). I am a bit wary of keeping this in my purse because I think the lid is not tight enough.
Where can I buy this?
I bought this from their physical store and I have not come across this product being sold online with any other e-retailer. You can buy this online from the Omved store.
Would I recommend this?
Yes, but personally I would like to buy the mint version that Omved has so that I can try the both of them and decide on a favourite. I also use this for my boys, so it is safe for use for kids too.
