I always have more than enough lip balms stashed away in every accessible place in my home. This hydrating natural lip balm provides quick relief to severely dry lips leaving them feeling smooth and healthy for hours.
Omved Mint Lip Balm is a light very lip balm that is infused with the goodness of kokum, shea butter, almond and mint oils. One thing good about this balm is that the fragrance is not very over powering like most mint based products. The balm has a grainy texture and it melts when it gets in contact with your finger. And trust me, you need really very little of the lip balm to keep your lips hydrated. I use this lip balm even for my twin boys who are 4 years old because it is all natural and organic. So it is safe for use for kids too.
Price, Shelf Life & Availability
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, it is travel friendly. I need to add here that I also use the Cinnamon Lip Balm by Omved and in both the lip balms, the lid is a little loose and that stops me from keeping it in my purse because the lid may just open. I love the tin packaging, maybe they should just get tighter lids or boxes.
Will I repurchase
Yes, but I’d re-buy the cinnamon one because mint is a very common flavour for lip balms. One tin of the lip balm will easily last the shelf life even if you used it thrice a day. If you’ve seen the pic, you’ll notice that the tin is already half empty 🙂

Verdict : I liked both the balms and I’ve stashed away the cinnamon one for use in winter, because it has a warm appeal to it. The cinnamon keeps your lips warm. I prefer the mint one for the summer because it is more refreshing and provides adequate respite in the scorching heat. But if I had to pick one, it would be the cinnamon.
