During my travel around Australia I read about the Baume de Rose by Terry in a magazine. Before that I hadn’t heard anything about this product or brand. Since I’m a fanatic lip care lover, of course I started to desire to buy this magical lip balm.
The By Terry brand was founded by Terry de Gunzburg who used to be a part of the YSL team.
I can clearly remember how they described this balm in a magazine saying that it’s a must-have of Hollywood stars that nourishes, repairs and takes care of lips and that it’s almost the best thing that could ever happen to a mankind. Joking
When I came back to my town I ran to the local Sephora to buy this product. I was so curious!
The balm is packed in a small frosted glass jar.
I don’t actually like that I have to take out the product with my fingers (it’s nonhygienic) so I bought a special brush for it.
At the store I also saw the version of the Baume de Rose in a tube with a lip brush included by the way. But when I swatched it, I thought that it was less concentrated and opted for the classical one in a jar.
The balm is of pastel-pink color with a tender rose scent.
This protective repairing balm offers complete lip care and regenerates nail contours. By Terry Baume De Rose has an intensive formula concentrated with precious active ingredients:
- Restructuring and soothing Essential Rose Wax.
- Nourishing and emollient Floral oils.
- Hydrating, anti-aging and smoothing Bio-ceramides .
- Anti-free radical and protective UV filters.
This product is also suitable for taking care of nail cuticles but I never apply it there. That doesn’t mean I don’t like my cuticles, no. It means that $55 product is just too much for cuticle care.
And on my lips this product works very well. I usually apply it overnight. The balm is comfortable on my lips. In the morning I have full and smooth to the touch lips. It also works well as a lipstick primer.
But I’m afraid that it won’t do well with very chapped or cracked lips.
Rose Essential Wax, Pastel Oil, Shea Butter, UV filters (SPF 15) and Vitamin E.

For me this product is just a balm which is pleasant to use or a treat. After I use up this jar, I doubt that I’ll repurchase. For the amount of money it costs, I’m sure that I can buy a better quality product. Like La Mer, for instance.
