Review Of Forest Essentials Lip Balm Sugared Rose Petal

I am really excited to write the first post on my blog. I want to write about a product which I love the most as my first post and so I selected Forest Essentials Lip Balm Sugared Rose petal. This is the latest addition to my lip balm collection. I usually stock 5-7 variants of lip balms and keep on trying the new releases into the market. I have used Forest Essentials (FE) Sweet narangi juice lip balm few months back,which is the first ever lip balm which I emptied. It worked well for me and had a lot of faith on FE lip balms.  I got this  variant Sugared Rose petal lip balm in full size in My Envy Box February Valentine's  Day 2014 special Edition.

My View On the Product :
This Forest Essentials Sugared Rose Petal Lip Balm is a pale pink colored,light weight balm with a smooth texture,just glides on lips,it does not show up any noticeable tint and is almost transparent. It has a strong Rose scent,which is a bit different from natural rose fragrance. It  hydrates and moisturizes lips immediately after application,and stays for almost 2-3 hrs and need to be re-applied afterwards. Very little is needed and the tub lasts for more than 2 months.It does not feel greasy or sticky on lips. As it is a herbal product it needs to be used within 3 months of opening the pack. Overall it is a good hydrating lip balm,which keeps lips well moisturized. It may not work for very dry chapped lips. I liked the Sweet Narangi juice variant more than this variant. Because of tub packaging it is a bit messy and unhygienic to use.It could be better if it had some tint.

Final Conclusion about Forest Essentials Sugared Rose Petal Lip Balm : It is a good moisturizing and hydrating lip balm which gives a nice glossy sheen to the lips and acts as a perfect base for  matte lipsticks. Main advantage with this lip balm is it is made of organic ingredients and is chemical free. It could be more better if it had a bit of tint and had a lesser price.
