Okay, I confess, I am a little crazy when it comes to fancy packaging of products. I have bought way too many products only for their attractive packaging and when they turn out to be good in quality as well; life can’t get better, can it? 😀 But, did this lip balm in a pretty packaging turn out to be worth the slightly high price tag? Read on to know!
The Forest Essentials lip balm comes in a fancy packaging as I’ve already mentioned above. It comes in an outer carton which is rhombus shaped and inside it the lip balm is cutely nestled in a black sponge. The lip balm itself comes in a tiny case with a classy- vintageish golden cover. The base that holds the lip balm is transparent. And inside the cover, there’s a pretty little mirror! Aaah… how I love this tiny little thing!!! 😀 the case shuts tightly and is very travel friendly! It’s also small enough to fit in your jeans pocket or any handbag or clutch!
But yes, a con with the packaging – you need to use your fingers to apply it! I don’t mind it but yes it can get unhygienic at times!
Another thing I love about this lip balm is the ingredients list! It’s all natural with no harsh chemicals that would harm my lips 🙂
Talking about the texture of the lip balm, it’s the most light weight lip balm I’ve ever used. It just gets absorbed into lips instantly. I love how it doesn’t sit on lips; I find such lip balms very irritating that keep sitting on the lips for a long time! it’s something like an oil, but not sticky or oily, just an oil that gets immediately absorbed in your lips and makes them soft and look a little glossy!
It moisturizes lips quite well but I would say it doesn’t heal chapped lips. Yes, I won’t say it’s the most moisturizing lip balm out there. But since I generally do not have super dry or chapped lips, I find this sufficient for myself. But you can find a better and heavier lip balm for sure! It makes lips feel soft and supple and healthy! 🙂 it also claims to work on pigmentation of lips but I do not have pigmented lips so can’t say anything about this! Also, please note that natural products take quite some time to work on things like this and you shouldn’t expect instant results with this!
This lip balm comes in 4 flavours. All of them look slightly coloured in the pan but they all go on transparent as they’re just lip balms without any kindof tint. This is another thing I love 🙂 I love it for most days I only feel like applying a nourishing lip balm instead of the tints and glosses and tinted balms! After all lips need natural nourishment too after all the makeup we put on them!!
The flavour that I have is Sweet Narangi Juice and I love the fragrance 🙂 I generally do like citrusy scents and this one is really natural-citrusy and also smells of some oil! I like it! But I don’t see everyone liking the fragrance!
I am very happy with it but I don’t see myself repurchasing as I’ve got the fancy little case I wanted. I own better and more moisturizing lip balms! But I might buy a different variant (the rose one looks even prettier) some time later, just to try out that flavour and the fact that its natural!
Overall, I feel this is a very good lip balm but not the best in the market! At the price tag, it’s more of a splurge or luxury product! You don’t ‘need’ this but you would ‘want’ to get it! 😀
