It’s so sad that I’ve never used Blistex lip balms before. I preferred Carmex or some natural lip products. This purchase was spontaneous, as I needed a lip balm, but forgot to take it with me one day. In the drugstore I found Blistex and decided to try it, although there was my favourite Carmex too. However, the new product was cheaper and so I’d decided to give it a go.
Blistex Medicated Lip Balm SPF 15
Weight: 4.25 g
I liked the product description. It would be good if it really helped prevent dryness and chapping.
Helps prevent dryness and chapping to soothe irritated lips
Temporarily protects and helps relieve chapped or cracked lips
Helps prevent sunburn
Contains three long-lasting protectants, seals in moisture to alleviate dryness and prevent reoccurance
Glides on comfortably to provide complete coverage and avoid further irritation of chapped lips
The packaging is traditional. It comes in a plastic tube with a twist up stick. The balm is covered in a paper brand package.
The smell is somewhat camphor and menthol. It’s a nice smell, although some people argue that it reminds them of some medicine.
The color is pinkish in the stick, but it’s absolutely transparent on the lips.
When applying I feel a menthol scent and even some tingling and cooling sensations, but it all fades in a minute.
I can’t call the texture oily. It’s comfortable to wear and not sticky. It feels like I have nothing on my lips when I have this lip balm on. The texture is creamy.
As a rule I apply a thin coat of the product and after a while it absorbs gradually leaving my lip skin moisturized and nourished. It wears around 2-3 hours on me.
It goes well with matte lipsticks preventing and reviving my lips. It heals cracked and chapped lips perfectly.
Moreover, SPF 15 is a nice bonus. You can use a lip balm any time of the year.
Blistex has become my favorite product out there. The price has positively impressed me. Highly recommended!
Thanks for reading my review!
