My Take On Biotique Fruit Whitening Lip Balm-
This whitening or lightening lip balm comes in a tub packaging, placed in a beautiful carton. As soon as I unscrewed the cap of the lip balm, I noticed that a white lid was covering the mouth of the tub, maybe to protect it from dirt and all. The lip balm smells a bit herbal, mild and kind of sweet. The lip balm is brownish in color and gives a light reddish-brown tinge to the lips. The product claims that it is Not a cosmetic product and that it has therapeutic properties. The ingredients in this lip balm look good to me as I can not spot any parabens and other seriously harmful chemicals. The lip balm claims to contain 100% botanical extracts.
I have been using it for like 3 weeks now and yes, I do notice a slight difference. My lips look a bit lighter and feel slightly softer too! However, do not expect this budget-friendly lip balm to remove the permanent stains or blackness on the lips. So, if you are looking for lip balms that lighten the lips, then go search for something better, or maybe try the Maybelline Baby Lips in Mango Pie! :) This fruit lip balm also does not moisturize the lips that nicely and would prove to be ineffective for those with dry lips. Reapplication is needed every 30-45 minutes or so, which is a pain to do.
Actually, this lip balm is not up to the mark, according to me and the staying power is not at all good. Also ,the lip balm does not taste or smell heavenly- a quality I prefer to have in all my lip balms :P The tub packaging is so unhygienic as I have to dig into it using my fingers every time. This is not a lip balm for pigmented lips. Neither do I recommend this lip balm, nor would I repurchase it myself...
1) Fragrance is mild
2) Claims to contain 100% botanical extracts
3) Slightly lightened my lips
4) Adds a really beautiful light reddish-brown tinge to the lips
5) Has therapeutic properties (Claims to have so)
6) Really affordable
7) Great quantity
8) Plastic lid to prevent contamination
1) Unhygienic tub packaging
2) Does not moisturize that nicely
3) Did nothing exceptional
4) Does not taste or smell heavenly
5) Staying power is not at all good
6) Not for winters
7) Forget using it if you are looking for a whitening and lightening lip balm! Pigmented lips- stay away is all I can say :)
8) No SPF
Final verdict- At this price, you can at least get better lip balm out in the market. Try investing your money in something else or put the money in your piggy bank :D Neither do I recommend this lip balm not would I repurchase it. Actually, I want to try the Morning Nectar lip balm but after a bad experience with this one, I doubt if I would like to buy it..... :-/
